Fain Says It Will Be All About Cruising This Summer!
Royal Caribbean Group CEO is very upbeat about the next few months.
Royal Caribbean Group President and CEO Richard Fain told travel advisors during his weekly address that this summer will all about cruising. He told the advisors “We are moving inexorably towards the total resumption of cruising in a safe and healthy manner.
Last Saturday, the Celebrity Millennium started her first voyage in 15 months, leaving from St Maarten to destinations in the Caribbean. In less than a week, the Adventure of the Seas will start sailing from Nassau.
In just two weeks, the Celebrity Edge will depart Port Everglades with their own Captain Kate at the helm. On July 2, Freedom of the Seas will lead port Miami on her first sailing to Nassau and our incomparable private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay,”
Fain also said, “While I may not know every detail of the process, I can assure you this: we will not restart any ship unless and until we are confident of two things. Firstly, it is safe to do so, and more so than shoreside equivalents. And secondly, that the experience onboard meets our exacting expectations, including guest ratings of the crews, at least equal to what they were pre-pandemic,” Fain said.
