Royal Caribbean will have five ships sailing short Caribbean and Bahamas cruises out of Florida in 2014 — one more than this year.
The lines says the 1,998-passenger Vision of the Seas will join the 3,634-passenger Liberty of the Seas in offering short voyages from Fort Lauderdale.
Vision of the Seas will operate four- and five-night Caribbean itineraries out of Fort Lauderdale through the summer of 2014. The four-night trips will stop in Cozumel, Mexico, while the five-night trips will alternate between Cozumel and Roatan, Honduras; and Key West and Grand Cayman.
