RCI-Royal Caribbean International announced a second consecutive winter cruise season sailing from Bridgetown Barbados.

Rhapsody of the Seas will make her way to the island nation to offer 7- and 14-night itineraries around the Southern Caribbean from November 2022 through April 2023.

Passengers have more opportunities to discover the natural wonders, traditions, and historical landmarks that anchor the communities of the region, like the centuries-old fort in Port of Spain, the world’s first underwater sculpture park in St. George Grenada, and the oldest botanical gardens in the Western Hemisphere in Kingstown (Saint Vincent Island).

Late-night visits are planned for the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao) plus an overnight in Oranjestad Aruba (on the 14-night itineraries). There are also calls on cities in Central and South America, such as Cartagena, Colon Panama and Puerto Limon Costa Rica.

News of a second Barbados winter season comes following the announcement of Bridgetown as the line’s newest homeport beginning December 2021.
