RCCL’s Vision-Class Cruise Ships Dwarf Tiny Tortola Port; Will Leave This Weekend
ROAD TOWN, Tortola — The British Virgin Islands Ports Authority (BVIPA) would like to inform the public that Royal Caribbean International’s Grandeur of the Seas will be departing the British Virgin Islands on Saturday and the Vision of the Seas will leave on Sunday.
The cruise ships will not be returning to the British Virgin Islands, thus concluding their warm lay-up in the British Virgin Islands.
The cruise ships will be leaving to prepare for their 2021 sailing itineraries.
Grandeur of the Seas is a Vision-class cruise ship owned and operated by Royal Caribbean International. Features include a full-service spa, six whirlpools, an outdoor jogging track and a number of bars and restaurants. It was announced on October 16, 2019 that Grandeur of the Seas will be transferred in the second quarter of 2021 to Pullmantur Cruises, in which Royal Caribbean has a 49 percent stake. These plans were cancelled in mid-2020.
Vision of the Seas is a Vision-class cruise ship operated by Royal Caribbean International, the last of her class. Her maiden voyage was on May 2, 1998, following which she sailed for a year in Europe before being moved to other routes. In 2013, Vision of the Seas received a dry dock refit.
