Update: Royal Caribbean added a second sailing onboard Vision of the Seas.

The same, evolving COVID-19 protocols that apply to Adventure of the Seas in Nassau will apply to Vision of the Seas in Bermuda. The government of Bermuda worked with Royal Caribbean to bring the cruise ship to the beautiful pink sand beaches of Bermuda to boost tourism responsibly.

To cruise on these sailings, passengers ages 18 and up must show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 and those under 18 must provide proof of negative test results. The entire onboard crew will be vaccinated as well.

Highlights of the 7-Night Bermuda itinerary include Perfect Day at CocoCay, the wonderful private island with the Thrill Waterpark, Oasis Lagoon, and Coco Beach Club. Plus, excursions in Bermuda's charming beachfront towns with colorful buildings and delightful local businesses.

Vision of the Seas is returning to the Caribbean in Summer 2021.

Vision of the Seas will be the second cruise ship announced to be returning to the Caribbean in Summer 2021.

"Our job is to bring joy to our guests, and so we do need to strike the balance between having the right protocols to keep everyone healthy and safe but still delivering an unbelievable vacation," Chief Marketing Officer Jim Berra said. "We're incredibly confident we can do that." 

Sailings continue through August. Call the number at the top of this page to speak to a Vacation Planner in the Avoya Travel NetworkTM to get all your questions answered. Vacation Planners are excited to hear this news and ready to help you return to sailing!
