Royal Caribbean to Sail Short Caribbean Getaways for 2024/25

Royal Caribbean International has revealed the lineup of short Caribbean cruises aboard eight ships in 2024/25. Of note, Allure of the Seas, the first Oasis-class ship to sail three- to four-night cruises, will extend its short Caribbean season homeporting from Port Canaveral (Orlando), FL, while Mariner of the Seas will set sail from the cruise line’s new net-zero terminal in Galveston, TX, for the first time. Ports of call in the Eastern and Western Caribbean include CocoCay, Puerto Plata, Roatan, Puerto Vallarta and more.

Highlights of the year-round 2024/25 short getaways are as follows:

  • Allure of the Seas will offer three- and four-night cruises to the Bahamas and CocoCay from Orlando until July 2023 and then will settle in Miami for the remainder of the year.
  • Sailing from Miami, Independence of the Seas will offer five-night Western Caribbean and CocoCay cruises, and four-night Eastern Caribbean sailings that visit Labadee.
  • Mariner of the Seas will offer four- and five-night escapes to destinations including Costa Maya and Cozumel.
  • Sailing from Los Angeles, Navigator of the Seas will offer three-, four- or seven-night cruises to Catalina Island, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Ensenada and Mazatlan.

Highlights of the seasonal 2024/25 short cruises are as follows:
