The Royal Caribbean International cruise line announced that it will change the itinerary of its Oasis-class vessels to accommodate construction on the docks at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The “wonder of the seas itinerary 2022” is a cruise ship that will be departing from its current location in May 2022 and returning to its original home port. The new itinerary will take place due to construction on the pier.

Oasis-Class Cruise Ship Itinerary Change Due to Pier Construction

The original itinerary for the Allure of the Seas’ February 19 sailing has been modified owing to pier work delays, according to Royal Caribbean. As a result, some ports of call for the cruise have been modified.

Itinerary Changes Due to Pier Construction Delays

Due to delays in pier building at Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, the Allure of the Seas, one of the world’s biggest cruise ships, will not be able to visit as scheduled on an upcoming 8-night Eastern Caribbean voyage. Instead, the 225,282-gross-ton cruise liner, which has a capacity of 5,484 people when double-booked, will stop at Labadee, Haiti.

Furthermore, this itinerary change has impacted other ports of call on the February 19, 2022 sailing. According to the email sent to booked guests, “Due to the distance from Haiti, we’ve pushed back our visit to Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas to Thursday, and replaced our visit to Basseterre, St. Kitts & Nevis with Nassau, Bahamas on Saturday.“

The initial schedule for the Allure was for it to leave Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, February 19. The first day was spent at sea, followed by a day in the Dominican Republic on Monday.

The ship was scheduled to dock at St. Thomas on Tuesday, St. Maarten on Wednesday, and St. Kitts on Thursday. After that, the voyage will end with two more days at sea before returning to Fort Lauderdale on February 27.

The new schedule still starts from Fort Lauderdale on February 19 and includes a day at sea, but it now includes a stop in Labadee, Haiti on Monday. Another day at sea is scheduled for Tuesday, followed by visits to St. Maarten and St. Thomas on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. Friday will be spent at sea, Saturday will be spent in Nassau, and the ship will arrive in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday as planned.

Taking a trip to Labadee

Guests may be dismayed that the schedule has altered so drastically, but the Allure of the Seas will still visit amazing destinations. The cruise line’s 260-acre private resort destination, located in Labadee on Haiti’s north coast, is the first port of call.

One of the world’s longest overwater zip lines, speedboat and snorkeling trips, an alpine coaster that reaches speeds of up to 30 miles per hour, the Arawak Aqua Park, and much more can be found in Labadee. Guests may also unwind on the island’s gorgeous beaches, lay in secluded coves, enjoy a historic walking tour, or learn more about the island’s customs and history.

Since the cruise industry closure started in March 2020, the island destination has been restricted to guests, but Allure of the Seas’ sister ship, Harmony of the Seas, was the first ship to return to the port this week, on January 27, 2022, bringing 2,896 enthusiastic passengers to Labadee.

Several ships were slated to visit Labadee in late 2021, however the trips were canceled due to violent turmoil in the region. Fortunately, visitors may once again look forward to experiencing this beautiful port of call, and it is anticipated that additional ships will be able to stop on Labadee in the near future.
