  1. Happy Thanksgiving to all those who love the sea and look forward to returning to sail again someday soon.
  2. Our booking on the Rotterdam (VII) Amsterdam to Ft Lauderdale Oct 10-24 2021 was just canceled via email from Gus.
  3. A question for anyone ... has Santa Clarita announced a list of ships for which they will seek CDC certification for Conditional Sailing? We heard Capt. Sagani mention Royal Princess and Ruby Princess. What others will be included?
  4. Thank you for posting the announcement from Capt. Dino Sagani aboard Majestic Princess in Manila Bay. Very interesting and revealing. We first met Capt. Sagani aboard Diamond Princess southbound from Whittier to Vancouver at the time that he was announced as relief Master for Capt. Tony Draper for then newbuild Royal Princess. I like him ... he will get his ship and crew ready for San Pedro. PS I agree completely with chengkp75 with regard to the decision in Miami to ignore the CDC for many months. It puts the Masters of all the Princess ships in a more challenging position ... yo
  5. Is anyone interested in seeing the applications to the CDC when they are filed?
  6. One important question for Gus ... when will HAL submit the Application for Conditional Sailing for each of the six ships to the CDC and will HAL provide a copy of each Application to the public. The date of the Application is of interest since it starts the 60 day clock defining possible dates of resumption of sailing for each of the six ships.
  7. Would RCI include Coco Cay with Labadee on the same itinerary?
  8. We are booked on Radiance OTS for a Key West call in the Fall of 2021. I presume that this is now not allowed. RCI will have to adjust the itinerary. Any thoughts?
  9. I was tempted to say that the source was a wireless transmitter in Richard Fain's office ... but, of course, that would not be true.
  10. Here is a draft of the missing final paragraph .... "Please bear with us as we review and modify all of our ship deployments and planned itineraries in order meet the terms and conditions of the CDC Framework for Conditional Sailing dated Oct. 30, 2020. We will then need to decide which ships we can sail at any given time and prepare and submit the necessary application materials for each ship selected to the CDC for their approval. This will be a process that will take weeks, if not months, to accomplish for our fleet across our brands."
  11. Not only are all of the ships registered in foreign countries (non-U.S. flag), the corporation is domiciled in and under the laws of Liberia. See below ... UNITED STATES SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION WASHINGTON, D.C. 20549 FORM 8-K CURRENT REPORT Pursuant To Section 13 or 15(d) of The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Date of report (Date of earliest event reported): October 16, 2020 ROYAL CARIBBEAN CRUISES LTD. (Exact Name of Registrant as Specified in Charter)
  12. I also presume that a cruise line or brand can apply to the CDC for Conditional Sailing Certificates for multiple ships in it's fleet at any given time. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Maybe they will apply for all of the ships in a class together.
  13. Of course, once the first Conditional Sailing Certificate is issued by the CDC for a specific ship in a given brand or line, subsequent Certificates for additional ships from that brand or line should be easier to obtain.
  14. The only subtle difference of importance as I understand the CDC order is that the Conditional Sailing Certificate is applied for and issued for each ship, not for each brand or line. I am surprised that the Cruise Industry News summary did not make that clear.
