My first thought was, this means nothing, celeb doesn't arrive in San Juan til that afternoon, but the evidence is pretty strong.
I agree as many of suspected for so long that one goes to Bayonne.
It's the other that has me stumped...
My first thought was Alaska/Pacific Northwest.
But then I have a hard time believing one of these new builds won't be in florida, even if it were built for colder weather.
I think Indy and Adventure going to Southampton is probably all they will get.
I think the big question remains what ship will hand San Juan.... could one of the sunshines spend part year there, and the other part in alaska?
I also can see Explorer replacing Majesty. Hmmm.... the chess game.
I think it's final location will be NJ/NY, but not before it helps out in FLL. I think it will be at Pier 17 in FLL while Oasis is in dry dock, which is the fall of 2014. Many CCers say that RC promised Port Everglages with lots of people through there and with only one of the big girls there it will drop their numbers greatly. With Allure being in dry dock the next year, that will also have an effect on those numbers.
My guess is when Oasis returns then the Sunshine class ship will head up the coast to NJ. If other CCers say the terminal sucks in NJ would they be willing to send it there ASAP, or fulfill the needs of FLL? It might be for a period of 3 months of Oasis dry dock time. I am not sure how long it would take to build a new terminal in NJ, but even simple construction will take at least a year from start to finish.
Hopefully the third Oasis class ship would be done in time for Allure to go to dry dock, and they would swap with each other. Perhaps Allure will go as soon as Oasis is done as there is only a years age difference. If that was the case Quantum could stay in FLL a bit longer and at the same time the new terminal in NJ is being finished. But, as I think about it that plan wouldn't work as ship schedules just don't get changed a drop of a hat. When the new terminal is completed in NJ they have a relatively new ship to sail on.
Lets face it, where ever she goes to the people will follow. NJ or FLL our family will be there.
Just some complemlation,
