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.

Galveston Pleasure Pier

The Galveston Pleasure Pier is an excellent way to pass an evening before your cruise.

I always recommend getting to Galveston at least one day in advance of your cruise. You don’t want to risk a late flight on departure, and Galveston is an excellent vacation destination on its own. If you get there early, however, you will want something to do. We walked to the Galveston Pleasure Pier from our hotel. There probably isn’t enough there to pass an entire day. However, it is a great way to pass a beautiful Summer evening.

We wrote earlier this month with the complete schedule of cruises from Galveston through April 2021. Happily, Carnival has since updated their schedule. Even better, there is great news for cruisers from Texas. The Carnival 2021 Galveston schedule is expanding. Carnival will offer cruises on 4 different ships on a wider variety of itineraries.

Lunch in Grand Cayman

Cayman Cabana is an excellent lunch choice near the cruise pier in Georgetown, Grand Cayman. Turn left on N. Church Street from the cruise pier and walk about a block past a beach.

Earlier this week, I wrote that we enjoyed our beach day at Royal Palms Beach Club. The atmosphere was high energy, and the food looked great. However, we wanted a quieter lunch with a more local feel. We wound up at Cayman Cabana right by the cruise pier. They offered local dishes with outdoor seating and gorgeous views. I highly recommend it for lunch in Grand Cayman.

Royal Palms Beach Club shore excursion

The Royal Palms Beach Club in Grand Cayman is a great, high-energy shore excursion.

Every cruise, I love to take a low-key day to relax on the beach. My favorite spot for that is Maya Chan. This cruise, however, didn’t take us that way. When we went to Grand Cayman this Summer, we booked a day at the Royal Palms Beach Club (RPBC). It wasn’t quiet and relaxing by any means. Instead, it was a high energy day on a beautiful section of beach. If that’s what you are looking for in a shore excursion, this is a great option for you.
