The Royal Caribbean Group has received approval to resume cruises from the US after operations were suspended for more than a year during the COVID-19 pandemic. On June 26, the cruise line celebrates a long-awaited return from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale with Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Edge.
“US cruises are back!” Said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO of the Royal Caribbean Group. “After months of working with the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other government officials, our Healthy Sail Panel and industry partners, we are once again able to offer cruise enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the cruise. We are really grateful to have reached this special milestone. “
The return of the cruise line will be heralded with a ride on its critically acclaimed, state-of-the-art luxury ship Celebrity Edge. The ship received the green light from the CDC to be the first ship back in the water and meet all new standards for a safe and healthy cruise experience for guests and crew. The first crossing from Fort Lauderdale sets the stage for the Royal Caribbean Group to announce additional itineraries, revitalize the local US port economy and fuel the recovery of cruise tourism around the world.
