(2:20 p.m. EST) -- Royal Caribbean has unveiled a new lineup of short Caribbean sailings from three to five nights in duration, sailing from five homeports, for the 2022-2023 cruise season
The sailings -- departing from homeports in both Florida and Texas -- will be spread across 17 different itineraries, with both weekend and mid-week cruising options available. Most sailings will include a stop at Royal Caribbean's private island in the Bahamas, Perfect Day at CocoCay.

These include Freedom of the Seas, which will operate three-and-four-night cruises from Miami to Nassau and Perfect Day; and Independence of the Seas, which will continue to operate three-and-four-night voyages to Nassau and Perfect Day from Port Canaveral (Orlando).
Other ships operating Royal Caribbean's short sailings on a seasonal basis include Liberty of the Seas (Fort Lauderdale; three-and-four nights to Perfect Day and Grand Bahama Island); Mariner of the Seas (Port Canaveral; four-and-five-night cruises to Perfect Day and Western Caribbean); Brilliance of the Seas (Tampa; four-and-five-night sailings to Nassau and Key West); Rhapsody of the Seas (Tampa; four-and-five-night sailings to Cozumel and Grand Cayman); Adventure of the Seas (Galveston; four-and-five-night sailings to Costa Maya and Cozumel); and Grandeur of the Seas (Galveston; four-and-five night sailings to Costa Maya and Cozumel).
