Royal Caribbean has proven that cruises are safe, having already handled more than 50,000 passengers in Singapore on the Quantum of the Seas. Thanks to these trips, sanitary measures are already well used and tested. The cruise line is also working with Cyprus to ensure the safety of guests and crew.
Savvas Perdios, Assistant Minister for Tourism of Cyprus
We are pleased to announce that Royal Caribbean will make Limassol its home port for the first time. This has been our ambition for many years and we are delighted that this dream has finally come true. We are confident that Royal Caribbean’s presence in Limassol will be beneficial for Cyprus and we are also confident that Cyprus, as a home port and a country, will meet the expectations of Royal Caribbean and its guests.
This will be the first time Royal Caribbean has cruised in Europe since the end of its operations. Europe was one of the few regions that had already allowed the operation of cruise ships.
Costa Cruises and MSC Cruises have already left Italy. AIDA Cruises also offers cruises to Germany and the Canary Islands.
Also in the UK from 17. The month of May will resume. Many cruise lines have jumped on the bandwagon and are offering domestic cruises from Southampton. However, the United States remains very closed and Royal Caribbean is looking for alternative home ports.
There’s also the Jamaica Rumble and Cozumel will be a home port, so there may be other interesting announcements to come.
