  1. I completely feel your frustration. We were booked on the June cruise to Norway/Iceland as well. Reading into the matter, I now understand their plan is to reduce the length of the individual cruises. From their point of view it is less likely that people get sick onboard of a < 7 night cruise if you consider the incubation time. This must be why they canceled the Jewel cruises (mostly 12 nighters) and also the Adventure ones. They moved Adventure to the Mediterranean for very short cruises. Speaking about the Baltics cruise, I imagine that they will cancel the Russian ports due to travel restrictions. It is much easier to travel within EU borders these days. Still very sad of course. Let's hope 2022 will be a better year...
  2. I understand that they want to move around some ships. But why would they completely cancel the Jewel cruises (British Isles, Norway-Iceland)? Those itineraries are incredibly popular. Will there be another ship taking over?
  3. With every click on the Royal page, the price goes up $200. At first, it says "from $2500", then you go click on general Balcony cabin, "from $2800", and then you pick the normal Balcony cabin which is the cheapest possible and priced from "$3100". -- me, everytime on royalcaribbean.com
  4. Cheap af compared to other cruises currently offered. But a limited port selection, probably that's why.
  5. Napoli is great. You can go to islands (like Capri), have a local cruise around the Amalfi coast (Amalfi, Sorrento and more), go to the old sights (Pompeii or Ercolano), to cities (Napoli, Salerno or even Rome – 1hr by train), or just go to the beaches. Similar things can be said about Athens, although I personally do not like the city (very hot in summer, ugly flat buildings, and very messy). Of course all the ancient sights are amazing.
  6. Good catch, I just verified with my data and it's indeed missing. It will probably similar to the cruise on 1 October (Rome-Athens-Mykonos-Santorini-Naples-Rome). No problem, mate. We decided on Jewel as well, but on the June 9 (Norway–Iceland). We will probably keep that one unless Explorer or Indy surprises us with a hell of Norway or Iceland cruise.
  7. Anthem visits Norway five times in 2021 from Southampton. And Jewel goes to Norway and Icelands two more times from Amsterdam. I guess that might be it for Europe. And this might be the cruise that "replaces" the arctic cycle cruises: Ultimate Norwegian Fjords Cruise 9 Nights – 11 June Southampton, England Bergen, Norwegen Geiranger, Norwegen Stavanger, Norwegen Oslo, Norwegen Kristiansand, Norwegen One of the Iceland cruises of Jewel is on the 9 June, so also very similar to the usual arctic cycle cruise date.
  8. We are a little disappointed too. Hoped for some Norway or Iceland trips. However, Anthem does a lot more Norway than expected (overnights in Geiranger and Stavanger for example). Maybe she is the replacement for that... On the other hand, I kind of cannot believe there will be no Arctic Cycle cruise anymore. :-p
  9. So what I noticed about Odyssey: - A lot of overnights in Athens and Napoli. - Late stays in Santorini and Mykonos (10 PM or later). - Three cruises to Israel, one in May and two in September, but no overnights in Israel. Usually the last cruises of the year were to Israel, but Odyssey continues some Greek cruises in October. About Adventure: - Unfortunately, no "special" destinations, just the standard baltics tours. - Last Adventure cruise is 22 August so far – more to come?

  11. I observed the same thing at another cruise a year ago. My conclusion was: - Suite staterooms always get sold. I would not bet on the assumption that they will be open for 2 people. - Balcony staterooms are sometimes still available very short prior to the cruise. At one specific cruise they blocked many balcony cabins for 3 people until a few weeks before the cruise. Then suddenly like 100 cabins were available again. We were lucky and switched to one of these.
  12. I know, just kidding. 🙂 We are really looking forward to see what is going to be added in Southampton/Stockholm/Copenhagen/Rome.
  13. Quo vadis Royal Caribbean, it is December 16 in Europe and the new cruises have not even leaked yet. 😝
  14. We discussed that a few days ago in this topic. To summarize my information: - There will be Adventure and probably Explorer in Copenhagen/Stockholm, so maybe two Voyager class ships! - Due to the size of these ships, it's unclear whether they can make the typical Arctic cycle or Iceland-Greenland TA
