This will be the fifth President’s Cruise, and the first on a Quantum Class ship.

Royal Caribbean International CEO and President Michael Bayley, who is hosting the sailing, sent an email to Crown and Anchor Society members inviting them to join him for the festivities.

"I hope you’ll join me, our dedicated crew members and the Crown & Anchor Society team on board. There are more details to come as we plan a full schedule of events, including live performances, immersive destination experiences and more."

"I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. We are so appreciative of your unwavering support and understanding during the last 20 months. A larger-than-life President’s Cruise is just one way we want to thank you."
