RCI-Royal Caribbean International is back in California after over a decade.

Navigator of the Seas departed from San Pedro's World Cruise Center (Los Angeles, California USA) on November 19, starting a year-round season of 3-night weekend to 4-5-night weekday roundtrips to ports on the Mexican Riviera, Santa Catalina Island, and California.

Vicki Freed, senior vice president, Sales, and Trade Support and Service, Royal Caribbean, said it was exciting to see Royal Caribbean back to sailing from LA for the first time in 10+ years. 

“We’re confident that the travel advisory community will continue to easily win over their clients who are looking to get away in a new way from the West Coast market. With Navigator of the Seas just amplified in 2019 and short 3- to 5-night cruises to sun-soaked destinations, such as Catalina Island, Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas, this is a winning combination and the ideal vacation for travelers of any age and for any occasion.”

Now cruising from LA, Navigator OTS premieres the ultimate getaway combining adventures ashore, in destinations including Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas, and onboard – from the industry’s first standalone blow-dry bar to the longest waterslide at sea.

Passengers who sail on Navigator OTS can enjoy a US$115 million series of enhancements introduced onboard the ship back in 2019.

Cruisers looking to take more time off can choose from a number of 7-night sailings that visit Puerto Vallarta (Jalisco) and Mazatlan (Sinaloa), Mexico.
