Even though the majority of cruises have been shut down for the past year, cruise lines continue to have record sales for future sailings.
Silversea Cruises, Royal Caribbean’s ultra luxury cruise line, had record sales for their 2023 cruise around the world. The 139 day cruise sold out in just one day.
