Royal Caribbean has given an update on their cruise ships that were scheduled for upgrades as part of the cruise line’s Royal Amplification.
This new update from Royal Caribbean affects four cruise ships, Allure of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas, and Liberty of the Seas.
The Allure of the Seas Amplification has been postponed until further notice. Additionally, due to pier construction delays in the Galveston terminal, the pier will unfortunately not be ready to welcome an Oasis Class cruise ship. Therefore, Allure will no longer sail from Galveston, Texas, and rather, local fan-favorite Liberty of the Seas will assume Allure’s itineraries in late 2021.
The Adventure, Explorer and Liberty of the Seas Amplifications have also been postponed until further notice. All Explorer sailings will be cancelled through August 2020 to complete a technical dry dock.
Those who were booked on one of the canceled or altered sailings will receive an email from Royal Caribbean or their travel agent.
Royal Caribbean said that they reason for the postponed ship upgrades is due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of shipyards. There was also a disruption to the supply chain and the ship upgrades can not be completed as scheduled.
