Vision of the Seas Out of Bermuda


Deck Crew
Royal sent us an email this morning indicating Vision of the Seas sailings out of Bermuda this summer have been canceled. Check with Royal or your travel advisor. The 2 choices will be full refund or 25% extra money toward a new booking. Remember the 25% is only given if you haven't been canceled prior under the Cruise with Confidence program. I do wonder if they'll still give the 25% on new money toward the current booking. It's something that travel advisors will have to ask before giving you the option. But if you want to book a new cruise, it's probably better to let them keep it and wait for the FCC since a refund will make you lose the extra 25% you received before. If you're not sure what to do at this point, take the refund. Here's the released info.

While the past few weeks have certainly been tumultuous, we remain encouraged and excited about our progressive return to sailing. Recent conversations have led to promising movement for the cruise industry and are the necessary steppingstones to get Royal Caribbean® back to what we do best – delivering the most memorable vacation experiences to both you and your clients!

As a result of these developments, the likelihood of cruises setting sail from the U.S. this summer is greater each day, and with that, U.S. travelers are increasingly showing a preference for more direct access to ports of departure. Regrettably, the decision has been made to cancel Vision of the Seas®’ summer season from Bermuda. While we are no longer homeporting from Bermuda, we still look forward to visiting the beautiful island nation with several ships across the Royal Caribbean fleet as we have for many years. We continue to work in close partnership with the Ministry of Transport and the Bermuda Tourism Authority towards our common goal of reviving local tourism as part of our larger return to service scope.

We understand that this news may be disappointing to your impacted clients. For those currently booked on Visions of the Seas this summer and not previously canceled under our Cruise with Confidence program.
