Booking Considerations

Cabin Type

Do you prefer a cabin with or without a window? Cabins without a window are normally located on the inside corridor of the ship. There are also balcony rooms and suites. Balcony rooms come with an outside patio area where the scenery can be enjoyed without leaving quarters. Suites include a sleeping and dining area with additional amenities. ** If someone in your party is prone to seasickness, choose a cabin that is in a lower level and in the middle of the ship.

Cabin Size

Having comfortable surroundings is important when going on a week-long cruise. Will you be spending a lot of time in the cabin? Do you want to wake up and drink coffee on the balcony? A small cabin with no window isn't a good fit for passengers that are claustrophobic. Make sure to determine your needs ahead of time and book a cabin size accordingly.

Amenities

Cabins and suites offer a wide range of amenities from Concierge services, to menu upgrades and spa access, to wet bars and butlers in the suite class. Determine which perks will make your vacation complete before finalizing a cabin.

IMPORTANT CRUISE UPDATES

Vaccination Requirements

This cruise will be a fully vaccinated cruise. Your original COVID vaccination card is required and must be presented at the terminal to board the ship. A copy, photo or digital record is NOT acceptable. You will be denied boarding (without refund) for failure to present your ORIGINAL COVID vaccination document. For guests departing from Florida homeports, this vaccine requirement is the policy of several international governments for a cruise ship to enter their waters. The cruise line remains in contact with local governments in the ports we visit and will update the policy if advised. To be considered fully vaccinated, each guest's regimen must include the required number of doses in their vaccine series. The final dose of your vaccine must be administered at least 14 days before sailing.

*Vaccine policies are subject to change. You may contact our office to confirm you have the latest information.

What vaccines are accepted?

The cruise line accepts vaccines that are fully approved or authorized for emergency use by the U.S. FDA or the World Health Organization. A guest is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the required number of doses in their vaccine series have been fully administered (e.g. 2 shots of Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, etc., or 1 shot of Johnson & Johnson).

*Vaccine policies are subject to change. You may contact our office to confirm you have the latest information.

Mixed Vaccine Doses

We understand some guests may have been vaccinated with doses from two different vaccine manufacturers. Currently, the cruise line will accept a mixed vaccination series consisting of doses from different manufacturers, as long as your vaccine series meets the following requirements:

  • Must consist of at least two doses of vaccines that are fully approved or authorized for emergency use by the U.S. FDA or the World Health Organization.

  • The 2 doses must be administered at least 28 days apart.

  • The final dose must be completed at least 14 days before sailing.

  • Guests whose two-shot regimen consists of 1 mRNA dose (Pfizer or Moderna) with 1 AstraZeneca dose will not be considered vaccinated. The cruise line will continue to encourage the CDC and other U.S. government officials to re-evaluate this policy.

Mixed vaccines may not be accepted at all ports of call. Guests who are vaccinated with a mixed series may not be allowed to go ashore at these ports, or may need to undergo additional testing if they wish to go ashore.

*Vaccine policies are subject to change. You may contact our office to confirm you have the latest information.

Pre-Cruise Testing

All guests will need to take a COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen) with an accredited test provider, such as a drugstore chain or diagnostic lab, no more than 2 days before arriving at the terminal and show their negative test result upon arriving. The results can be printed out, or can be presented on your phone, such as the email result from your test provider.

What to Expect On Boarding Day

Arrive Only During Your Time Slot. It is very important that all guests arrive at the terminal within the arrival time slot you selected during the Royal Caribbean check-in process. Those who arrive early will not be able to begin boarding, and those who arrive late will need to wait until we are able to work them into another group. Make sure you wear your face mask at all times during the boarding process.

Cruise Themes

You just can't have a lifestyle cruise without having a theme for each night! Let your imagination run wild when planning your costumes. It is not required that you dress in theme but it can add some extra fun to the evening!

The themes have not been announced yet for this cruise but once they are we will be sure to post them.

Pre-Cruise Packages

It is always recommended that you arrive the night before the cruise to ensure that you do not miss the boat. For those of you that wish to follow our recommendation, we will make arrangements at a local hotel for a group rate to stay the night before the cruise. We'll be hosting a pre-cruise Meet & Greet Reception to give everyone the opportunity to start getting to know the others that you will be sailing the open waters with.

At this point, details for the hotel, Meet & Greet Reception and shuttle service have not been finalized yet for this cruise.
