  1. Some CD's have headed out to ships now. From what I have seen: Hugo Arenas on Adventure Joff Eaton on Anthem John Blair on Serenade Brian Leavitt on Symphony Mitch Merucci on Quantum Marc Walker is also on a ship (possibly Allure?).
  2. An 8 nighter on Oasis Class does sound quite good in all fairness, always wanted to see something a bit different to 7 nighters on them (often not enough time to do everything and really experience the ship).
  3. I believe Voyager is heading to San Juan after her stint in Boston. No idea on Navigator - her deployment is one that does interest me as I thought she'd be a cert for short cruises. Really liked the look of her AMP 2 years ago so would definitely be interested in a sailing on her if something a bit longer. And yeah - not really any mid ground options for 7 night Caribbean now. I love Oasis Class but as you say, it gets stale doing the same one each time.
  4. And that's great for them that they've found a successful market and no problem putting 1 or 2 of them on that route. But all 3 just seems like a middle finger being stuck up to non American markets (and it's not like some of the ships we have in Europe are anything to write home about, the likes of Voyager, Brilliance, Rhapsody and Vision are just what's left over).
  5. Until Oct 2022 then joining her sisters on the short cruises.
  6. Not at all happy reading the deployment schedules. As a European, I feel like it's a major slap in the face that all ships in the class are to be assigned to a specific market which is inaccessible for anyone from abroad to travel to. Indy was the ship that got me into cruising back when she was in Southampton. Been a few years but I was hoping to sail either her or one of her sisters in the not too distant future. No chance of it ever again by the sounds of it. Sure, it's profitable but could they not have had one in PC, one in Miami and the other doing longer itineraries somewhere? (even if in Florida, a 6/7/8 nighter would do).
  7. What ship do we think is going to New Jersey alongside Oasis?
  8. My guess would be the new Wonder of the Seas going to Oz, splitting time between there & China.
  9. And I've sailed ships other than Independence - I've also been on Jewel, Enchantment, Explorer, Serenade, Oasis, Allure, Harmony, Symphony and Anthem. It's an issue with Anthem and not an issue with "not Independence" - I'd be quite happy if we had a Voyager, another Freedom or an Oasis in the area. Ah well, Allure looks to be Barcelona bound at least.
  10. 3rd year in a row it's happened so I think we can safely say that we'll never see Indy again in Southampton. They clearly think that the only thing that the UK wants is so-called Royal Caribbean ship Anthem.
  11. Bobby Brown is on the Quantum which has resumed sailings as of today! 🙂
  12. I can't see where it says that but fingers crossed it is true!
  13. Never been a mega Quantum Class fan but this seems like too good of an opportunity for me to pass up so will look into one of these sailings.
  14. If they sell ships then there may be some that don't return or are moved to the offices. If not, then they'll still need the same number of CD's. I don't know about any of their personal circumstances and it's not my business, but I imagine that some would need to return quicker than others depending on how many other irons they may have in the fire (since some have taken on other gigs during the last few months).
  15. Richard was one of a kind. I wonder if there ever will be a Richard 2.0. Who knows? There could be a new CD in waiting that "takes off" the way he did. Indeed, there were a fair few promotions in the last year before cruising came to a halt, could even be one of them as they haven't had that long to prove their talents.
  16. I said in my post 'unless you like Quantum Class'...you might, I certainly don't.
  17. I hope that Europe gets an amplified ship (Oasis, Voyager or Freedom class) or Symphony for Summer 2022. The 2021 selection is as dull as dishwater unless you like old ships and Quantum Class (Harmony is cool but we've already sailed her).
  18. I can't think why Allure would be seen as boring. I'd quite like to sail the unrefurbished Allure, last of the class without that awful Abyss and more of the original Oasis Class features. Interior wise, I also prefer the decor on Oasis & Allure to that on Harmony & Symphony - the older two are nicer looking ships than their younger sisters IMO.
  19. They always send an Oasis Class to Europe for the summer. I also never said that they weren't using the larger pier, I stated that she would likely be headed to Galveston around November. Even if she was to go to Galveston from Sept, where would she otherwise spend May-August? And I highly doubt that Europe would have no Oasis Class that year - it's always been popular.
  20. Left - love Harmony & Symphony. Did Anthem once, didn't really get it and whilst it was cool to do that class, I don't have much interest in returning.
  21. It was mentioned on the Deployment thread. Allure has no bookings beyond April 2022 whereas HM & SY do hence why I think she is Europe bound.
  22. Allure isn't booked for any Caribbean ports in Summer 2022 whereas HM & SY are and OA will no doubt stay on the NJ run. That makes me think that AL will go to Europe that summer and then in November could head to Galveston to replace Liberty.
