Let’s face it, most of us are busy. Maybe you are buried by projects at work or busy running the kids to and from practice each night. Finding some time to relax can be a challenge, especially if you find that you can’t take a whole week away from your commitments to take a vacation. The reality is that everyone needs a vacation and a weekend adventure with Royal Caribbean is the perfect way to get away.

A Cruise to Fit Your Schedule

What many travelers might not realize is that Royal Caribbean’s sailings range in length from just three nights to over twelve nights. For those vacationers who aren’t able to get away for a whole week, there are short cruising options. While some of these short itineraries happen during the week, many sailings are extended weekend escapes that are designed to fit busy schedules.

3 Nights: Bahamas & Perfect Day Cruise

Sailing this fall and into 2020, Royal Caribbean’s Bahama & Perfect Day Cruise stops into Nassau, Bahamas where you can explore the city’s colorful town or vibrant snorkeling reefs. This cruise also calls upon Royal Caribbean’s private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay. Royal Caribbean recently overhauled and re-opened it to the public in May of 2019, adding additional features, like floating cabanas, are set to open in January.

So how can you sail on this cruise? The Mariner of the Seas, stationed in Orlando (Port Canaveral), and the Navigator of the Seas, departing from Miami, will both sail this itinerary through the rest of 2019 and into 2020.

4 Nights: Western Caribbean Cruise

Adding just one extra day to your weekend opens up the possibilities to explore the Western Caribbean on one of Royal Caribbean’s 4-night cruises. With five ships sailing this itinerary, the Oasis of the Seas, the Brilliance of the Seas, the Adventure of the Seas, the Independence of the Seas, and the recently refurbished Empress of the Seas, there are plenty of options to set sail to Cozumel before 2019 is over.

These itineraries all have two days at sea and one day in Cozumel, Mexico. That means that you’ll have some time to sit back and relax on this cruise as you sail the ocean. Or spend your days at sea exploring your fun-filled ship, which includes waterslides, Playmaker’s Arcade, and even laser tag.

How to Book Your Weekend Cruise

The best way to book your cruise is by getting in touch with your travel agent. Using a travel agent will help you ensure that you have everything taken care of, from pre- or post-cruise stays, to flights, and shore excursions. Travel agents are also well-versed in the different ships and ports to ensure that everyone, especially first-time cruisers, has a stress-free vacation!
