Other than hearing “are we there yet?” from little ones in the back seat during a family road trip, the saddest vacation quote I can think of is “it’s time to disembark the vessel.”
Royal Caribbean International has felt our pain and passengers on European sailings who wish to remain on board longer on departure day may now sign up in advance of the cruise for their Late Departure Program. Sign up online under Shore and Land Excursions for the port of call where the cruise terminates.
In another variant of “I don’t want the vacation to end yet,” for passengers on Oasis of the Seas who have time before their flight leaves, Royal Caribbean is testing an Extended Stay program that allows the Oasis passengers to store their luggage and enjoy a day in Hollywood, Florida in and around the boardwalk. This opportunity encompasses shopping, dining, going to the beach, riding the trolley, and/or relaxing at the cruise lines’ hospitality center. This opportunity is also available as a shore excursion under the port of call, Ft. Lauderdale, for all guests sailing on board Oasis of the Seas.
