I heard it here first. I'd be happy to try Mariner since I've already been on Voyager I wonder if this is the first ship that size to go to Australia?
the travel agent industry article I read said that it is the largest ship ewver to be based in Australia
I read it was being deployed to China. So I guess it is only going to do one winter in New Orleans then?
I am anxious to get on Mariner in March!
it goes to China from Europe and then goes to Australia from China. Legend will stay in Asia as well.
Not surprised and very glad to see Voyager in Australia. Fares are VERY high in Australia. Radiance and Rhapsody have the highest fares of any ship in the fleet this upcoming winter. Glad they are pulling Voyager out of Europe for Asia in the summer, too. Looks like they finally realized fares are too low to keep Voyager in Venice! ($399 for some 7 nighters) Now if only they could pull out another low performing ship or two from Europe for the Caribbean in the summer, with one sailing from Galveston.
boy don't I know about the high fares in Australioa. we are booked on the transpacific from Sydney to Honolulu next April.
The article stated that RCI will still have 12 ships in Europe, so some ship will apparently replace VY in Europe!
I am hoping that all of the new activity with different cruise lines in Galveston will get RCI off high center and get them to give us back a full time ship. I'm hoping, but not holding my breath. I wonder which--Rhapsody or RAdiance or either, will leave Australia.
Thanks for starting this Dylan.
