Royal Caribbean International revealed in a press release yesterday that The Bahamas is in the top five of its “ultimate holiday bucket list for 2021” for UK travelers.
“A survey shows nearly half of UK holidaymakers’ bucket lists are longer than ever before since the pandemic, making it clear the UK’s zeal for holidays and experiences is greater than ever before,” the release states.
The Bahamas fell behind only Australia, Canada, Alaska and Barbados.
The survey was commissioned by Royal Caribbean and coincided with the cruise line’s recent return to sailing.
Royal Caribbean Vice President Ben Bouldin said potential passengers’ time without cruising has made them seek adventure and “great holiday options”.
“The bucket list survey results have been released on the heels of the return of the action-packed Anthem of the Seas. Earlier this month, the chart-topping cruise ship departed from Southampton for the first time in six years and marked a celebratory moment for the cruise line’s return to sailing in the UK after 20 months,” noted Royal Caribbean.
The company will continue to sail from The Bahamas as a home port with only fully vaccinated adults until next month, when it will be required that children 12 and older are vaccinated.
The other countries on the UK’s top list include New Zealand, Italy, Iceland, Japan, Brazil, Greece and the Greek Isles, North America (not including Alaska), Thailand, Antigua, Norway, Bermuda, Portugal, Singapore, China and Cyprus.
