(2:40 p.m. EST) Royal Caribbean has revealed its summer and fall itineraries for 2021, led by the announcement that both Symphony and Allure of the Seas will sail alternating Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises during the summer of 2021.

Both of the Oasis-class vessels will offer seven-night cruises calling on Royal Caribbean's private island experience, Perfect Day at CocoCay, among other Caribbean ports of call. Symphony of the Seas will sail from Miami, and Allure of the Seas will depart from Port Canaveral (Orlando), Florida.

The deployment will follow Allure of the Seas' $165-million "amplification" that will see the addition of the Ultimate Abyss, a dry slide that boasts a 10-story plunge. The refurbishment will also give Allure of the Seas Royal Caribbean's Perfect Storm trio of waterslides; a new array of culinary options including Giovanni's Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar, plus other passenger favorites.

In November 2021, Allure of the Seas will depart for its winter season of cruises, with Harmony of the Seas taking its place in Port Canaveral.

Royal Caribbean also announced itinerary options for the newly amplified Oasis of the Seas, which will sail from Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey. Passengers will be able to enjoy new dining options, including Royal Caribbean's Portside BBQ, along with new hot spots like Spotlight Karaoke and Music Hall.
