Royal Caribbean will restart with short cruises to private island, may seek volunteers for test runs

Royal Caribbean will resume sailings with short cruises to its private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay, once it has fulfilled the new requirements issued last week by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – and it may need volunteers to participate in the required “simulation voyages” required by the CDC.

The comments were made Wednesday by Vicki Freed, Royal Caribbean’s senior vice president of Sales, Trade Support and Service, during her weekly coffee chat with travel advisors.

“We will be bringing back short cruises calling at Perfect Day at CocoCay,” Freed told Royal Caribbean’s travel agent partners. “We’re going to be doing a series of sailings using our employees and other volunteers,” she continued. ” We haven’t decided how we’re going to select people at this point. We will be looking possibly for volunteers. We do not have all of the details yet fleshed out.”
