Counting on one of you to post as soon as you find out! I was calling in and checking as was my TA till she went out of town this week, I am so tired of waiting I hope it turns out to worth it!

Good find. 30 days after her arrival in Miami per current schedule. A few short Caribbean cruses then through the PC perhaps? May be enough time to go around the Horn but I dont think Royal are interested.

But then where? At that time of year, she sure ain't going to Alaska! Wouldn't have thought she is headed to Australia or Asia. Maybe back through PC to Galveston or Florida?

Could be a ruse for another ship, but unlikely given announced deployments.

If there is only one round trip it will be very expensive each way..

I think all the PC cruises are pretty expensive. But it would be hard to pass up.

I am on Indy right now - The Indy spring TA in 2018 is indeed cancelled the way it was released.....nobody knows what is going to happen - the guess is they will move it and make it longer not only 10 nights without any significant ports - will be interesting to see how they will protect the passengers already booked on it!

The timing from her arrival in Miami and the dates does make perfect sense.

I do believe Vision will hit dry dock after the TA

Ha, probably true! Paricularly given the timing, with Winter approaching in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern.
Similarly, deploying her to Asia at this time of year would only make sense if they send her to the south Eg Singapore or Phillipines.

Perhaps she is headed for Auckland and Melbourne? You picked up those Radiance turnarounds in Melbourne recently. A ruse for Vision?

Vision arrives in Miami on 10/31/18 from her TA and is now popping up in LA on 11/29/18

I see nothing in the LA Calendar for December so this is likely to be a one-time deal en route to somewhere else. Australia is likely.
