When Royal Caribbean ships hit the ice for a first time in over two years, how big a deal is it?

Royal Caribbean is making history this weekend as it opens the gates to a new route for its cruise ships.

Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, the Crystal, is scheduled to depart on Saturday, and its debut will be its first free ship in over a decade.

The Crystal is scheduled for a cruise to Hawaii on March 14.

Its first sail in more than two years came in April.

The ship was built to travel the world, and Royal Caribbean says its first cruise to China and India will happen this weekend.

Royal cruises are already starting to open in other countries.

A dozen ships from the United States and seven from other countries are scheduled to sail through Mexico, Canada and the United Kingdom from March 15 to 20.
