Royal Caribbean International has announced the redeployment of Navigator of the Seas for the 2011-12 winter season to the Caribbean.
The ship will reposition to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale (Florida), and sail a range of five to nine-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries starting on 20 November 2011. Navigator of the Seas will also offer a 14-night, transatlantic sailing from Rome to Port Everglades, departing 6 November 2011, and a 15-night return cruise to Rome on 14 April 2012.
Navigator of the Seas will alternate six-night Western Caribbean itineraries with eight-night Eastern Caribbean itineraries. Ports of call on the six-night sailings include Grand Cayman, the newly opened Historic Falmouth Port (Jamaica), and Labadee (Haiti). The eight-night sailing features calls at St. Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan (Puerto Rico) and Labadee (Haiti).
A seven-night Eastern Caribbean itinerary, departing on 8 and 22 January 2012, excludes the call at St. Kitts from the eight-night itinerary, while a seven-night Western Caribbean itinerary, departing 15 January, adds a call to the six-night itinerary at Cozumel (Mexico). A special nine-night New Year’s cruise, departing 30 December 2011, adds a call at St. Thomas (U.S. Virgin Islands) to the eight-night Eastern Caribbean itinerary.
