Royal Caribbean plans Attract of the Seas homeport in Texas, this time for 2022: Journey Weekly

Royal Caribbean International will return to its plans to host the Allure of the Seas in Galveston, Texas from November 2022.

The Allure was scheduled to make its Galveston debut this year, but in April the Port of Galveston approved Royal Caribbean’s request to postpone the construction of a $ 100 million terminal for a year that would be large enough to accommodate the 225,000 gross tons of Oasis to be picked up. Great Allure.

As Galveston’s current terminal cannot accommodate a ship the size of Allure, Royal Caribbean replaced the ship with the Liberty of the Seas for the 2021-22 winter season.

When it debuts in 2022, the Allure will be the largest cruise ship in Texas to date.

The Allure offers a mix of seven-day Western Caribbean itineraries from the new cruise terminal to ports like Roatan, Honduras; Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico; Falmouth, Jamaica; and George Town, Grand Cayman.

Royal Caribbean said the two-story Galveston Terminal will be equipped with the latest technology, including mobile check-in and facial recognition, to expedite guest arrivals. It was designed and developed sustainably to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental). Certification standards.
