Royal Caribbean Reverses Vaccination Requirement for Florida, Texas Cruises / Travel Pulse / By LAURIE BARATTI / Exclusive News

Royal Caribbean Reverses Vaccination Requirement for Florida, Texas Cruises / Travel Pulse / By LAURIE BARATTI / Exclusive News
On Friday, Royal Caribbean announced a reversal of its previously planned requirement that passengers be fully COVID-19 vaccinated in order to sail aboard its cruises.
This policy change flies in the face of Royal Caribbean’s original mandate that both guests and crew be fully vaccinated in order to board its vessels when the line returns to cruising from U.S. homeports in June 2021.
The vaccination requirement will no longer apply for ships sailing out of Florida or Texas, although it holds for cruises departing from anywhere else.

One of the world’s largest passenger ships (along with its sister the Allure of the Seas), the Oasis of the Seas dwarfs the competition and the rest of RCI’s fleet, weighing a mind-boggling 225,282 tons and carrying 5,400 passengers.

Needless to say, myriad accommodations and amenities are available aboard the Oasis, and thus far reviews have been glowing with many passengers noting that the ship is so large they can barely tell when it’s moving.
