Royal Caribbean May look for Volunteers for Trial Cruises

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, along with any cruise line that wants to sail out of the US, will need to have test sailings before being able to resume regular sailings. Those trial cruises will include employees and volunteers.

“We are going to be doing a series of sailings using our employees and other volunteers to test out the protocols and make modifications,” said Vicki Freed, Senior VP of sales and trade support and service.

The company will be looking for volunteers but the details haven’t been worked out yet.

Freed also said that the first cruises to be offered in 2021 may be short sailings to CocoCay. That would allow Royal Caribbean to operate in a bubble on its own private island.

The Mariner and Navigator of the Seas will most likely be the vessels pressed into service first.

“It is going to require a lot of work to restart operations,” Freed said. “It is complicated to go through this entire CDC recommendation and we are going to do it.”

Would you volunteer to go on one of the test sailings?
