I see Voyager is headed down under. Seems like a recurring theme to send our ships there. This time we get a quick replacement and a better one in my opinion. JMHO

I agree, we much prefer the Mariner over the Voyager. I do hope Australia enjoys the Voyager.

Thanks for starting the new thread. I need my daily fix of this group. I checked the other thread every day but didn't really participate. This is a wonderful group of people.

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?

Default Guess we have a new job!

Break in a RCI ship, teach the crew how to smile, then send the ship to Australia! We did so with Rhapsody, now Voyager!

Dear RCI....we will glady do the same for Mariner....just leave her here for more than a few months a go and we will promise to do a really good job!

Texas Teen, way to go! Stay on top of this thread...now, how fast do we get it up to 5,900 posts?

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!

I knew something was up with the Voyager. I could only find one season in NOLA. Good for the Aussies.

Seriously thinking about booking the Mariner for Thanksgiving or Christmas this year. I'm sooo glad she's coming this fall.

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.
