Royal Caribbean Addresses Cruise Travel Safety

It's no surprise that the grounding of Costa Concordia has deeply affected not only Carnival Corporation and its cruise brands, but the entire industry. Yesterday Cruise Diva shared a message from Princess Cruises' Captain's Circle e-newsletter to past passengers and earlier today we shared an announcement from Prestige Cruise Holdings, parent company of Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Now have the following message that was sent to Royal Caribbean International's past passengers, members of the line's Crown and Anchor Society.

All of us at Royal Caribbean International continue to extend our heartfelt sympathies to those affected by Carnival Corporation's recent tragic incident on the Costa Concordia. As a Crown and Anchor Society member and loyal Royal Caribbean guest, we know you may have some questions as the situation continues to unfold.

At Royal Caribbean International, the safety and security of our guests and crew is our highest priority. It is fundamental to our operations. Our maritime safety record over our 42-year history illustrates our commitment to the safety of the millions of guests and crew that sail on our ships. The measures we take in the interest of safety are many, often exceeding the regulatory requirements – these are all part of our ongoing commitment to innovation and continuous improvement in every aspect of our business.

To address some of your questions and concerns, here is a video (below) that will provide an overview of safety onboard our ships; the training of our crew, officers and captains; and the many regulations that govern our practices.

As a past cruiser, we know your friends and family may be asking about your own time at sea. We hope that you’ll share this video along with your personal Royal Caribbean experiences with them, and reinforce that cruising continues to maintain the best safety record of any industry in travel.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you aboard again soon on one of our ships sailing to 270 destinations worldwide.

One of the concerns that many people take into consideration for any cruise is safety. Passengers must be aware of the surroundings and strangers and they should never let their guard down against strangers on board.
