MIAMI (AP) — Two Royal Caribbean lines will resume cruises in the Caribbean in June, ending a yearlong hiatus.

Passengers 18 and older will be required to test negative for COVID-19 before getting on the ships.

The company’s Celebrity Cruises subsidiary said its Celebrity Millennium ship will relaunch on June 5 from St. Maarten.

One itinerary will stop in Aruba, Curacao and Barbados, and another will stop in Tortola, St. Lucia and Barbados.

CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said returning to the Caribbean “marks the measured beginning of the end of what has been a uniquely challenging time for everyone.”
