Happy Sunday and Happy Thanksgiving weekend! I hope you enjoyed a wonderful holiday with family and friends! There is a lot of Royal Caribbean news to share this week.
Royal Caribbean will not sell any cruises longer than 7-nights until further notice in order to comply with new rules by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
The CDC’s Framework for Conditional Sailing Order stipulates that cruises longer than 7 nights and call on a U.S. port are not allowed while the CSO is in effect.
Therefore, Royal Caribbean sailings between Jan. 1 and Nov. 1, 2021 are “temporarily paused” while Royal Caribbean determines what to do with them.

Odyssey of the Seas has been floated out!
Royal Caribbean’s next new cruise ship was succesfully floated out from her shipyard hall on Saturday, reaching a major milestone in her construction.
Ship building Meyer Werft shared photos of Odyssey of the Seas being pulled out of the shipyard by tugboat and docked just outside the hall.
Now that Odyssey of the Seas is docked outside, more work will be done to add features to her, including the addition of the North Star observation pod.
