Royal Caribbean Summer 2021 deployment schedule delayed

Royal Caribbean has changed when they will announce their Summer 2021 schedule. Caribbean cruises from Galveston will now be announced two weeks later than planned.

I love to book cruises far in advance. That lets me reserve specialty cabins, and often the rates are lower. I also love to spend many months looking forward to each cruise. We reported earlier that the Royal Caribbean Summer 2021 schedule would be coming out November 4. It is still coming soon, but there is a slight delay.

To get this cabin for July 2019, we had to book it in November 2017. Our group wants to take another trip. That means we need to know the Royal Caribbean 2021 schedule. Fortunately, the company has announced when they will have those details. Here, we talk about what we know and what the impact will be for cruisers from Galveston.

Galveston cruise calendar 2019-2020

The Galveston cruise calendar has a lot of excellent options.

When we started sailing from Galveston in 2002, there weren’t a lot of options. Carnival had one old ship (the Celebration) sailing short itineraries. Later, Royal Caribbean added one older ship (the Rhapsody) sailing short cruises. By now, however, the Galveston cruise calendar has almost too many options.
