  1. Just a thought, Serenade is supposed to be in Australia this season (2021/22), but it is currently seating in the Caribbean. Meanwhile Radiance is sitting off Singapore. Is it possible that Royal is switching the ships around due to where they are currently located?
  2. This might have been when the ship was cruising in Asia, as I noted 1st and 2nd seatings in all 3 restaurants. When the ship is in Australia, they do have anytime dinning in 2 restaurants.
  3. When cruising from Australia, in the past, the Noodle Bar was free of charged. The Lobster Grill also they had free hamburgers and hot dogs.
  4. Just a question. Doesn't Royal have a ship homeported in San Juan? What are the demographics of these passengers? Don't the passengers have to fly to San Juan to board the ship? What is the difference of flying to San Juan than to Nassau? Regarding provisioning the ship, if Nassau is not capable, then what is stopping Royal from re-provisioning the ship at another port. After all someone has stated that Royal refuels the Oasis class at an island port rather than in the US on turnaround days.
  5. If cruising from Australia, then yes. Otherwise too far to travel.
  6. I agree. The cruise ships don't even need a wharf. On 2 occasions that I can remember, Circular Quay in Sydney had another ship docked, and with Radiance not been able to fit under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, was anchored in Sydney harbour. The turnaround was done by charter vessel. Passengers and luggage were transported to a designated wharf. It was a slower process, but was able to be done by tender.
  7. Wonder, like the other Oasis class ships, I would think is a warm weather ship, and would not be surprised if it does come down under sometime in the future, especially when Lelepa island is opened. I do not know about 2022/23. Does anyone know what is happening to Radiance after Alaska in 2022? I just had a quick look and could not find where she is heading too. If she is still unaccounted for, it may return here. I do not think RCG will cut capacity in Australia.
  8. Geoff and Chiliburn, do you think that RCG will only have 2 ships in Australia for 2022/23 cruising season? Ovation from Sydney and Quantum from Brisbane? This will be a decrease in capacity for Australia.
  9. Chengkp75, just a question Carnival Spirit was reflagged to Malta in 2012 and Carnival Legend in 2014, prior to their deployment to Australia. Prior to this they were registered in Panama. Is there any reason they would have changed their flag from Panama to Malta if cruising from Australia?
  10. Yes that is what I meant to post....half a sleep when posting🙂
  11. Just saw a advertisement for channel 9 Sydney news that they will present an article on cruising returning with swiping changes. Will be interesting to see how it is presented.
  12. Just saw on Today a new book by Duncan McNab on the Ruby Princess fiasco. From the interview, it seems he is blaming all parties involved, including why the ship sailed in the first place. After the interview, Peter Overton advertisement for the 6pm news article on cruise ships coming back with massive changes. Will be interesting to see how it is presented tonight.
  13. She is currently in Sanya, China according to marine traffic
  14. I think the problem the is Bridges of America with a height limit (it is about 61.3 metres or 201 feet.)
