(3:45 a.m. EDT) -- Royal Caribbean has announced a series of new cruises to Europe and the Caribbean for the Summer 2021 season, along with the redeployment of Adventure, Brilliance, Jewel, Independence, and Vision of the Seas.
The new itineraries include the debut of the line's newest ship Odyssey of the Seas as well as four-and-five-night Mediterranean getaways from Barcelona and additional summer sailings in the Caribbean, with ships sailing from Tampa, Florida and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Royal Caribbean said the decision to shuffle ships around was guided by market research and valuable passenger feedback.
The new deployment schedule is as follows:
Adventure of the Seas: Previously scheduled to be deployed from Copenhagen and Stockholm, the ship moves to Barcelona instead to sail a mixture of four-and-five-night Mediterranean cruises. Ports of call can include La Spezia and Rome, Italy; Ajaccio, Nice and Marseille, France; and Palma and Ibiza, Spain.
