Royal Caribbean International Ship Redeployment



Royal Caribbean International's fleet of iconic ships have been guest free since late March 2020, and they are ready to welcome all of you back onboard. To meet their guests' needs and keep all safe on board and ashore, Royal Caribbean has switched up and shuffled their ships.


Caribbean/ Bahamas: Winter 2020/21

The most popular cruise destinations deserve the most innovative and largest ships afloat. That being said, here are a few changes for the Winter 2020/21 season:



Allure of the Seas: Will sail 6-night Western Caribbean and 8- night Eastern Caribbean itineraries. Allure was initially scheduled to make her debut in Texas, which would make her largest ship to ever homeport in Texas. Due to shutdowns, the terminal being build to host Allure has been delayed. Allure of the Seas amplification has been cancelled.


Explorer of the Seas: Will sail 7-night Southern Caribbean itineraries from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Explorer was originally scheduled to sail from Port Miami after an extensive amplification, which has been cancelled due to budget constraints.


Freedom of the Seas: Recently Amplified the Freedom of the Seas will now sail from Port Miami on 3 and 4-night sailings to Perfect Day at Coco Cay. Freedom was originally scheduled to sail from San Juan, Puerto Rico.


Radiance of the Seas: Relocating from Australia, the Radiance will now sail 5 and 9-night sailings from Miami.


Australia and New Zealand: Winter 2020/2021

The land "Down Under" is hesitant to allow cruise ships to restart, but Royal Caribbean is ready for when they do.



Ovation of the Seas:

Remaining in Sydney and will boast new itineraries, Ovation will now sail:

  • 9 and 12-night itineraries to New Zealand

  • 5 and 7-night itineraries to Queensland, Australia

  • 6 and 8-night itineraries to Tasmania, Australia


Quantum of the Seas: Will now sail from Brisbane, Australia, offering 3-night weekend getaways and 7-9- night South Pacific Adventures.


Serenade of the Seas: Homporting is Sydney through February 2022. Serenade will offer 12-15 night adventures to Fiji and New Zealand or choose a short Melbourne, Australia getaway.


Other sailings not mentioned above are still scheduled to sail as planned once COVID-19 shutdowns are relaxed. All four Oasis-class ships will be sailing 7-night itineraries to the Caribbean from sunny Florida.


Oasis Class Homeports:

Allure of the Seas: Ft. Lauderdale

Oasis of the Seas: Miami

Symphony of the Seas: Miami

Harmony of the Seas: Cape Canaveral


The amplified Independence, Navigator, and Mariner of the Seas will all sail short itineraries to the Bahamas and Perfect day at Coco Cay.
