Royal Caribbean International has announced its 2022-2023 winter Caribbean schedule, which includes an Oasis class ship homeporting in Galveston, Texas for the first time ever.

Allure of the Seas

Starting in November 2022, mega-ship Allure of the Seas will spend the season sailing seven-night western Caribbean cruises from Galveston. It will dock at Royal Caribbean’s brand-new cruise terminal there, for which construction will begin in April and is set to open in fall 2022.

The western Caribbean itinerary will feature stops at Roatán, Honduras, as well as Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico.

Symphony of the Seas

Symphony will sail a mix of seven-night eastern and western Caribbean cruises from Miami, visiting ports such as St. Maarten and St. Thomas on the eastern route, and Costa Maya, Cozumel, and Roatán on the western itinerary. All sailings will also include a call at Royal’s private island in the Bahamas, Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Harmony of the Seas

Port Canaveral will continue to be home to Harmony of the Seas, which — like Symphony — will offer a mix of seven-night cruises to the eastern and western Caribbean. Along with stops at CocoCay, eastern cruises will include calls to St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and St. Kitts & Nevis. Western voyages will visit Nassau, Falmouth, and Royal’s private destination in Labadee, Haiti.

Oasis of the Seas

After a summer in New York City, Oasis will head south to Miami to begin a schedule of seven-night eastern and western Caribbean itineraries from November 2022 through April 2023. All will feature a full day at Perfect Day at CocoCay, and eastern cruises will also stop at Labadee, St. Thomas, and Puerto Rico. Western cruises will call in Costa Maya, Cozumel, and Roatán.

Serenade of the Seas

Following a summer season in Alaska, Serenade of the Seas will seek warmer waters in Tampa, Florida. The vessel is set to operate seven-night western Caribbean cruises that visit Cozumel, Costa Maya, Roatán, and Belize City. It will also operate seven-night Bahamas itineraries, which stop in Nassau, Bimini, and Perfect Day at CocoCay.

As Serenade makes its way from Vancouver to Tampa, it will offer a one-time Pacific Coast itinerary to Los Angeles before making a 13-night journey through the Panama Canal.

Destinations will include Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Croix, and Curaçao. In addition, the voyages will include longer stays in Aruba.
