Royal Caribbean's Oasis-class Call Florida Home

March 6, 2015

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line has announced that all three of its Oasis-class ships will be based in Florida next year.

To kick-start the summer 2016 season, Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and Harmony of the Seas will set sail from Port Canaveral and Port Everglades and take passengers on a series of eye-opening voyages to a number of exotic destinations.

Royal Caribbean’s Florida sailings will take place during the same period that its Quantum-class Anthem of the Seas vessel will embark on its first summer season out of Cape Liberty, where it will cruise to Bermuda.

Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas will depart from Florida’s Port Everglades on a selection of seven-night western and eastern Caribbean itineraries. And following its launch next month, the Harmony of the Seas vessel will take Oasis of the Seas’ place at Port Everglades to offer seven-night eastern and western Caribbean voyages for winter 2016/17.

It has not yet been announced which port Harmony of the Seas will make its debut from, but the cruise line did reveal the vessel will not embark on Caribbean itineraries initially.

Come autumn 2016, Oasis of the Seas will head to its new winter homeport of Port Canaveral from which the vessel will alternate between eastern and western Caribbean sailings.

Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas is due to launch this November. Passengers can expect to travel on a five-night Bermuda and nine-night Bermuda and Caribbean voyages in summer 2016, as well as eight to 12-night cruises to the Bahamas, and eastern, western and southern Caribbean during winter.

What’s more, the new ship has also scheduled a nine-night sailing from Cape Liberty to Canada and New England.

Itinerary details have also been announced for Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas, Grandeur of the Seas, Independence of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas, Serenade of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas vessels.

These include voyages to beautiful locations, such as Mexico, Bermuda, Aruba and the Bahamas.
