Port Baltimore welcomed back RCI-Royal Caribbean International for their first voyage from Maryland since the industry-wide COVID pause in sailings ended earlier this year.

Enchantment of the Seas departed on December 23rd on an 8-night roundtrip to the Bahamas, also visiting the private island CocoCay.

William P. Doyle (Maryland Port Administration's Executive Director) said the return of Royal Caribbean to the Port was a great way to celebrate the holiday season.

“People love to cruise from Baltimore for so many reasons starting with our location. Our cruise terminal is directly off Interstate 95 and BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport is only 15 minutes away. We’re located right alongside Baltimore’s world-famous Inner Harbor, as well as Federal Hill, Fort McHenry, and Fells Point with plenty of sightseeing, dining, and shopping options. Come cruise from Baltimore, enjoy our great city, and sail to some of the most incredible tropical paradises in the world.”

Royal Caribbean has sailed from Baltimore MD since 2004. The company started offering year-round voyages from Baltimore in 2010.

Enchantment OTS replaced Baltimore’s former RCI liner Grandeur of the Seas.
