Odyssey of the Seas will Sail from Florida Starting November 2021, Following April 2021 Debut Season in Europe
MIAMI, Sept. 13, 2019* – Royal Caribbean International will dial up the adventure in South Florida with the arrival of the highly anticipated Odyssey of the Seas – the first Quantum Ultra Class ship to arrive in North America. Following her April 2021 debut and summer in Rome, the global cruise line’s 27th ship will arrive to her seasonal homeport of Fort Lauderdale, FL in November 2021 to offer 8- and 6-night Caribbean cruises.
Offering even more ways to experience the sun-soaked islands of the Western and Southern Caribbean, Odyssey of the Seas will be the first Quantum Ultra Class ship to call on Aruba and Curacao as part of its 8-night itineraries. Island-hopping vacationers can explore Aruba’s rugged landscape off-roading in Arikok National Park, and discover the beloved architecture and narrow streets of Willemstad, Curacao. Primed for memory-making, Odyssey’s 6-night adventures will open the door to deep diving in Cozumel, Mexico; swimming with sea turtles in George Town, Grand Cayman; and a day of thrill and chill on Perfect Day at CocoCay, home to Daredevil’s Peak, the tallest waterslide in North America; Up, Up & Away, the helium balloon experience that soars up to 450 feet in the air; Oasis Lagoon, the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool; and the pristine, white sand beaches of The Bahamas.
Odyssey’s Caribbean cruises are now open for sale; and Europe itineraries will open in November 2019.
