December 23. Royal Caribbean will not be accepting new bookings on cruises departing in the next few weeks, the cruise line confirmed to Travel + Leisure on Thursday.
“Cruises departing through early January 2022 are unavailable to new reservations because our ships will continue sailing with a limited capacity to accommodate physical distancing,” the cruise line said in a statement to T+L. “These sailings were removed from our website as we’ve done with previous cruises in 2021.”
The earliest departure date available on the Royal Caribbean website is Jan. 10, , Royal Caribbean shared on Twitter. Customers who already have bookings between now and then will still be able to make upgrades and room changes.
“Additional layers of our measures include vaccination requirements for our guests and crew, a facemask policy, pre-cruise testing for all guests, and weekly testing for every crew member,” Royal Caribbean also noted.
