Ports of Call
Labadee, Haiti - This tropical paradise, reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, features pristine beaches, walking trails and breathtaking vistas. Labadee is the perfect setting for parasailing, wave runners and the kayak tour, all available on your own private island.
Nassau, Bahamas - The captivating capital of the 700 Bahamian islands. Attractions include forts to explore, coral reefs to snorkel and a fascinating straw market to shop
Port Canaveral, Florida - Port Canaveral lies just 35 miles east of Orlando, along the 72 miles of pristine beaches known as Florida's Space Coast. Besides its close proximity to Orlando's theme parks, you'll find space-age attractions of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - In days of yore, the waters near Puerto Rico teemed with pirate ships commanded by the likes of Sir Francis Drake. Aye, they are long gone, but in their wake they have left an island of national treasures: La Casa Blanca, built in 1501 for the island's first governor, Ponce de Leon; the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan; the tropical rain forests of El Yunque.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe.
