Royal Caribbean Adds New Cruises Out of Barbados
Royal Caribbean has announced it will be offering cruises out of Barbados beginning in December 2021 on Grandeur of the Seas. The line will offer three distinct 7- and 14-night Southern Caribbean itineraries out of Bridgetown, Barbados, including three new ports of call in the islands of Tobago, Trinidad, and St. Vincent.
According to an official statement by the line, this is the first time Royal Caribbean will call Barbados a homeport.
