Royal Caribbean to homeport in Barbados subsequent winter: Journey Weekly

Royal Caribbean International will be home port in Barbados for the first time, offering Southern Caribbean cruises on the Grandeur of the Seas in the winter of 2021-2022.

With three different itineraries of seven and 14 days from Bridgetown, the Grandeur will call at three new ports for the line: the islands of Tobago, Trinidad and St. Vincent. Weekly crossings offer overnight stays in Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao, while the ship’s longer cruises include Cartagena, Colombia. Colon, Panama; and Puerto Limon, Costa Rica.

The cruises start on December 5th.

“After the year of industry and region, this is a shining light to look forward to the coming winter season,” Barbados Minister of Tourism and International Transport Lisa Cummins said in a statement.

“We have wanted more home porting activities from Barbados for some time, including pre and post-stay vacations, exposing cruisers to the best that Barbados has to offer, and regionally developing new itineraries that will enhance the cruise experience all over the Caribbean. “

Royal Caribbean announced in October that it would offer more Caribbean crossings in the winter of 2020-2021, with additional ships in Florida and more crossings to its private island in the Bahamas.

Correction: An earlier version of this report contained an incorrect date for the start of Barbados cruises. It’s December 5th.
