Grandeur of the Seas will homeport in Bridgetown, Barbados

Royal Caribbean International is launching three new itineraries from Barbados from December 2021, with seven- and 14-night sailings onboard Grandeur of the Seas visiting destinations across the southern Caribbean.

“We are excited to grow our long-standing partnership with Barbados and introduce Bridgetown as Royal Caribbean's newest homeport,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International. “The pink-sand beaches and unexpected adventures across Barbados also make it an ideal destination for our guests to experience even more of the Caribbean charm and culture before or after their cruise.”

The seven-night voyages will visit a different destination every day, with late-night stays in the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. The longer 14-night sailings will include an overnight stay in Aruba, along with visits to Cartagena, Colombia, Colon, Panama, Puerto Limon and Costa Rica, among others. All three itineraries will include visits to three new ports of call for Royal Caribbean: the islands of Trinidad, Tobago and St. Vincent.

"After the year the industry and region have had, this is a shining light to look forward to this coming winter season,” said Senator Lisa Cummins, Minister of Tourism and International Transport for Barbados. “We are looking forward to displaying our Bajan hospitality, wide range of accommodations, rich culture, diversity of experiences, world class cuisine, unique attractions, and especially want to share the warmth of the Barbadian people. These are the things that keep visitors coming back for more!"
