Celebrity Cruises Captain Kate McCue shared a video on Instagram of Captains and bridge crew from across different cruise companies engaging in a horn salute every day at 7:30pm.

"On March 20th we started something special. With ships from different companies congregating in the same "neighborhood" it was a perfect opportunity to celebrate our solidarity."

Captain McCue calls this movement "#HopeFloats" and it is about letting everyone know that they are safe onboard, and that they wish the same for everyone around the world.

"We sound our horns, to let our crew and the world know that while we are strong, safe, and healthy on board, we are thinking of those at home and hoping the same for them."

These ships are massed together in the Caribbean as cruise ships wait for cruise lines to resume operations.

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.

Video: Spectrum of the Seas Humanitarian Cruise for Australian Bushfire First Responders

11Mar2020

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.
