In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the world at a devastating rate, impacting millions and bringing global business to a halt. For everyone’s health and safety, Royal Caribbean Group suspended their operations and instead focused on providing relief to their community of employees and partners.
In February of 2021, Royal Caribbean promised that their entire crew would be vaccinated before setting sail, and everyone has been eager to make that goal a reality. Many crew members quickly took initiative and got vaccinated in their home country, doing their part to protect our community.
However, some crew members were unable to access the vaccine at home. For their sake, Royal Caribbean organized opportunities for their employees to get vaccinated, so they could safely rejoin the crew when cruising began again.
Fortunately, many ports around the world started welcoming ships for mass vaccinations. Royal Caribbean ships have sailed into ports like Miami and Port Canaveral, providing vaccines for hundreds of employees at once. Through opportunities like these, Royal Caribbean has helped vaccinate over 40,000 of their employees across the globe.
