  1. I had my quantum April 2022 cancelled. This is due to them moving quantum from Sydney to Brisbane. It’s outrageous they won’t let us take the Brisbane to Honolulu cruise at the same price as we booked the Sydney to Honolulu cruise. It’s the same month. Same time of year. And it’s their doing. I sent Michael Bayley a message via messenger. I don’t expect any satisfaction.
  2. There's no way I'm going to let them keep my money if they don't price protect me. $50 or $100 obc for rebooking is an outrageously pathetic offer. Its unfair they aren't giving us the option of sailing on her for the same price as we agreed on. It is just a change of departure port and its a year and a half off.
  3. I must be missing something. I've justvreveived the following email telling me that the quantum April 2022 TP has been cancelled. Isn't that the ship that the radiance bookings are being shifted to? Dear Guest, We hope this email finds you and your family healthy and well. Over the next few weeks, we will be making schedule and itinerary adjustments to some of our late 2021 and early 2022 sailings for six of our ships. These changes are being made after tapping into market research and listening to feedback and input from guests and trade partners on opportunities for new adventures. But most importantly, we are applying the best available public health, science and engineering insights to deliver a safe and healthy cruise vacation. However, as a result of these shifts, our April 11, 2022 Quantum of the Seas cruise has been cancelled. We know this news is disappointing, and we're sorry for the impact to your vacation. As a result of this unexpected change, we'll be providing you with the following: A full refund of any paid portion of your cruise fare to the original form(s) of payment, including any non-refundable deposit.

Kindly note, refund times may vary depending on your financial institution. And, if you booked your airfare through Royal Caribbean International, it will be automatically refunded to you. However, if you booked on your own, please contact the service provider directly for your options with them. Understanding how much time and effort go into planning your cruise, it's important that we make this up to you. So, we also have a special offer just for you. If you rebook an alternate like itinerary departing from Sydney, Australia or Brisbane, Australia in 2021 or 2022 by November 24, 2020, we'll provide you with an Onboard Credit valued at $50 USD for Interior and Ocean View staterooms or $100 USD for Balcony staterooms and Suites.

Once you find a new sailing, just call us or reach out to your Travel Advisor to rebook your next getaway. The Onboard Credit will be automatically applied to your new reservation 72 hours from the date you rebooked your new cruise, so there's nothing additional for you to do!

  4. I still don’t understand. Wouldn’t 6000 be sufficient for an oasis class ship? some people don’t like Freo terminal. I think it’s perfect. I’ve seen 3 large ships pulled alongside at once. Passengers can walk to Freo or the Freo train station with a short trip into Perth. Soon Perth airport will have a regular train station. I believe it will be just normal price, unlike Sydney. Plane arrivals can take the train to Freo, with a maximum of one train change. the terminal is not fancy but it’s flexible and has a fabulous location which can be accessed quickly and inexpensively. Geraldton and Esperance are tender ports. Broome can be a problem for even small ships. Pretty sure port hedland would be accessible with oasis class ships. Smaller ships tender near Margaret river and Albany.
  5. How does Perth fall short in being able to visit and do embarkation ?
  6. Fremantle . Possibly Darwin. Probably Sydney. Brisbane in the future. Melbourne never.
  7. I thought there was just one. Oh well, still would not change my mind but I can see where some people would like that.
  8. These cruises are about 18 months off. I imagine there will be a number of changes in the coming months and year. As some ports open, Royal may decide to jettison whole itineraries. Once cruising is somewhat underway, Australia may not open to cruises. Royal needs to go where there is some certainty. If Australia can’t offer that, Royal may commit the ships elsewhere. All the chopping and changing is expensive for them.
  9. Thanks for responding Emmy. I was really only referring to the TP. I did the TP on radiance in sept 2019. I think I’d prefer a larger ship. With more to do. More dining options. It can get a bit repetitive with only 4 specialty restaurants and the menus in some of those are abbreviated compared to the same venues on larger ships. Thanks again for your insight. 💐
  10. I lifted and shifted to quantum in that same route in 4/22. im just curious why you folks chose radiance when you could have sailed on quantum at the same price.
  11. Thanks, I appreciate the link. I'll keep my eyes open for some other source. That blog isn't top of my list for knowledge
  12. As far as I know, wonder is not significantly delayed. As long as cruising is open, I doubt they would just keep it out if service. If anything will get people on board, it would be a new ship. But they may not cruise out of China until the war is done.
  13. I am looking forward to wonder of the seas getting scheduled. Granted, it was supposed to be launched in May 2021 or thereabouts.
  14. Why did they single out Australia cruises if that’s their master plan? I looked earlier today and there were only a few. On a crappy ship going cheap. Why did they cancel all other cruises worldwide except Australia? tell them their dreaming’
  15. Does anyone else think that cruising is now finished for western passengers out of Hong Kong, shanghai and tianjin? I'm glad I got a chance to visit Hong Kong and cruise out of it. I think it's closed for business until after the war at least.
