Royal Caribbean International has announced that its 1992-built cruise ship, Majesty of the Seas, will offer year round cruise from New Orleans.
The 2,767-passenger ship will begin sailing from New Orleans in January 2020. The ship will homeport here until April 2021 and offer week-long cruise itineraries.
Brandy D. Christian, President & CEO, Port NOLA, said: “Port NOLA values our longstanding partnership with Royal Caribbean International and we are thrilled to welcome the Majesty of the Seas for year-round service from New Orleans. Royal Caribbean’s strengthened commitment to the market is a testament to the growing demand for cruises from our unique American City, as we continue to offer two vacations in one.”
Majesty of the Seas will embark on seven-night cruises each Saturday, offering cruise itineraries to the Bahamas, as well as the Western Caribbean, Mexico and Belize. The ship will also sail to the cruise line’s newly reimagined private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay.
Cruises from New Orleans on Majesty of the Seas up until April 2020 are already on sail. Cruises departing from May 2020 until April 2021 are expected to go on sale from 22 July 2019.
