Royal Caribbean reveals who will be the first to participate in test cruises

Michael Bayley said during the celebration of the International Cruise Summit in Madrid, that they still do not have a protocol for the selection of volunteers, but he assures that the level of loyalty, in this case to the brand, is a key point to take into account.

He also mentioned that the first to be considered for his test cruises will be members of his higher level called “Pinnacle”.


It is also to be expected that the crew members, travel agencies, partners and other members who operate the brand will not be left behind, since they are also part of the ecosystem and the early reactivation of cruise travel.

One of the US Centers for Disease Control guidelines for a safe and healthy return to sailing is test cruises, with volunteers.

Bayley also mentioned that the group that has been created on Facebook, Volunteer of the Seas, has had a good response from its loyal followers as well as cruise lovers “I went ahead and posted it on our Facebook page and within about a week, maybe 10 days, we had about 200,000 volunteers.

“So it was a very positive response, it was a little tongue in cheek but I think it speaks to the kind of enthusiasm — not only Royal Caribbean but all of the cruise lines in our industry — the kind of loyalists we all have and the enthusiasm from which our customers think about cruising.”

He also said: “It was a happy and positive response from tens and tens of thousands of people who want to get back to sea.”

According to Cruise Critic, the volunteer test cruises will take place in Europe just before the ships set sail for the 2021 season, this was confirmed by Ben Bouldin U.K Managing Director and Vice President of EMEA.
