Navigator of the Seas Sets Sail From Los Angeles
Another Royal Caribbean ship returned to service last week after being laid up for the past 20 months. Navigator of the Seas departed Los Angeles on Friday for a Mexican Riviera cruise. This is the line’s first time sailing from LA in a decade.
Just before the shutdown, the vessel received a $115 million renovation, and another shipyard visit this past summer in preparation for cruising.
Navigator will sail three, four, and five-night cruises to Catalina Island and the Mexican Riviera.
MSC Seashore Departs on Inaugural Cruise
After an eventful week in Miami, MSC Seashore departed on her inaugural revenue voyage on Saturday evening.
Seashore is the newest ship to sail from Miami, and will add to the lineup of Caribbean and Bahamas options from south Florida.
Every sailing will include a one or two day stop at the line’s newly-developed private island Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, which opened at the end of 2019.
This is MSC’s third ship to sail from Florida in 2021.
Two More Norwegian Cruise Line Ships Return to Service
It was also a big weekend for Norwegian Cruise Line, as its eighth and ninth ships have returned to service.
Breakaway-class ships Norwegian Encore and Norwegian Joy both departed PortMiami over the weekend.
Joy left on a seven-night western Caribbean cruise on Saturday, while Encore left for a week in the eastern Caribbean and Bahamas on Sunday.
Both vessels will stop at either Great Stirrup Cay or Harvest Caye — both private destinations for the cruise line — on their sailings.
