Royal Caribbean's in-house production company has been away from the office during the current shutdown, but put out a powerful new video sung to the popular Styx song, "Come Sail Away".
The video is narrated by Senior Vice President of Entertainment for Royal Caribbean International, Nick Weir, who starts off the video at a vacant production studio in North Miami, but quickly turns to the casting team who engage in their rendition of the 70's song.
The video includes scenes from various stages and venues aboard Royal Caribbean's ships, as well as ships around the world.
This is one of many videos that Royal Caribbean crew and employees have created during its voluntary cruise suspension. Many have been posted on social media and quickly shared between guests, crew, and executives.
Cruise ships from Royal Caribbean, Holland America, Celebrity Cruises and more joined together for an impromptu show of support for each other during a time when all cruise lines have halted sailings until the coronavirus threat passes.
Everyone cruises differently, but there are some people that prefer the traditions of cruising, and we tend to call them "old school". Are you one of those people? Today's video will help sort that out for you!
Big ships or small ships? Water slides or card rooms? Sea days or port days? Formal night or no dress code? These are the sort of things that will determine just how "old school" you really are.
When Royal Caribbean decided to move Spectrum of the Seas out of Asia due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the cruise line took this opportunity to give back to the first responders of Australia.
A number of complimentary humanitarian sailings were offered in support of Australia's volunteer first responder community, who worked tirelessly during the recent bushfire crisis.
Volunteers and their families were invited from all over Australia to sail on Spectrum of the Seas.
Royal Caribbean worked with state-based volunteer agencies directly to notify and encourage eligible volunteers to register for their complimentary cruise. The company partnered with Lifeline to provide individual support sessions for any guests who have been impacted by the bushfires and need to talk through calling the Bushfire Recovery line 13HELP on 13 43 57.
Going on a Royal Caribbean cruise includes a lot, but a giant price tag is not one of those things. There is a tremendous amount of value in a cruise, and I have a breakdown of what all the costs are to help you plan for an affordable vacation.
This video looks at the costs of cruising, so you have a better sense of what you should budget and save for, in order to have a great vacation with no financial surprises.
Yup, it is time to talk about the Coronavirus and going on a cruise vacation.
While I am no medical expert, I wanted to share my outlook on the situation, as so many RoyalCaribbeanBlog readers have expressed concern about the current situation. My hope is this video helps put things in perspective.
