Independence of the Seas' Feb 1 2014 cruise suddenly went "Not Available" this week. People on the roll call are speculating that it was chartered by Atlantis.

My husband and I are booked on the Celebrity Summit March 15 2014 out of San Juan, along with a lot of friends from this year's Atlantis Feb cruise. San Juan, St Barths, St Lucia, Martinique and Barbados.

Default Date Change

Atlantis changed the date of the March cruise to March 8-15, still on the Celebrity Summit leaving San Juan.

I hope we do not go to Grand Turk or the Bahamas. Neither place has impressed me.

Ya I think it's best to see if Atlantis announces another Caribbean cruise and it might not happen (Independence is back on sale)



With The large ship for the RSVP cruise in February 2014 MSC Poesia 3700 people

and the later Celebrity Atlantis March Cruise



Considering neither of the 2012 cruises sold out .. it will have to be seen if another cruise is announced


However, how could one possibly choose from these two wonderful choices

I'd be very disappointed if Rich does not do the January/February cruise. It has become our annual escape from the Northeast winter. Rich made it clear on the Independence that there would be a Jan/Feb cruise. He was negotiating with both Celebrity and Royal, price and ports seemed to be the hold ups. I personally would prefer an 8-night on a RCI Freedom class ship, but will go on the Silhouette.

Yes, I hope Rich doesn't have too many cruises too close together since they are going out on a limb with a ship larger than anything RSVP has ever chartered (AFAIK).

I have heard of a few Atlantis regulars that seem to have some interest in trying out RSVP and the new ship. The itinerary isn't the greatest IMO.

If we sign up, this would be our first gay cruise. We were thinking of it after booking Celebrity Silhouette for Feb2/14 I too would have been happier with Independence. If we get "the bad news" call from Celebrity we will let you know! I just hope the pricing won't be too much more for the cabin I have now!

Wink RSVP 2014 Ship

Just to let you know the ship RSVP is using in 2014 is not MSC Poesia but MSC Divina. It is Sailing 02/15/2014 which is President's Week. Good week for winter vacation.

I do hope it is Celebrity Silhoutte. I have been on the RSVP 2014 itinerary about 10 times. I am not an alumni on Atlantis so I am relying on the good citizens of this board.

It is not an official communication from Atlantis

But from the explosion of comments I do believe it to be true

People were allowed to book it on the Sydney Cruise



and I will just say "Yaay it looks we have three great cruises to choose from "
