Royal Caribbean and Celebrity say they’ll return to Alaska in July


Royal Caribbean International and sister brand Celebrity Cruises will both return to Alaska in July.

Celebrity said that beginning July 23, it will sail seven-day itineraries
roundtrip from Seattle on the Celebrity Summit, which recently underwent
a $500 million upgrade. The ship will offer nine sailings through
mid-September, marking its first time in Alaska.

The Summit will visit Ketchikan, Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier, Juneau and Skagway.

Royal Caribbean CEO Michael Bayley posted on Facebook, “The light continues to shine! Serenade of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas will sail to Alaska in July and August.”

Parent company Royal Caribbean Group said that both lines would operate sailing from Seattle and visit destinations including Juneau, Sitka, Skagway, Ketchikan and Icy Strait Point as well as Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier.

The sailings will be open to vaccinated U.S. guests over the age of 16. Passengers under the age of 16 can sail with proof of a negative PCR test.

“We are so pleased that Congress unanimously voted to pass legislation enabling cruise ships to sail to Alaska this season,” Richard Fain, Royal Caribbean Group CEO, said in a statement.
