  1. No port bookings indicate that yet that I can find. Navigator has been in port in Miami for several days now and no way to know what that is about as well.
  2. Please do not be selective. I said when they moved to Baltic and Northeast! Jewel port bookings indicated a transatlantic from Barcelona to Miami. Key West had been showing sailings arriving from Miami with Jewel for 2 years now and they may still do that, I have no way to know. Interestingly, Key West appears to have removed the cruise schedule from the website at the moment, I think. The scheduled stops at Key West with Jewel do seem to be replaced by Radiance.
  3. Serenade of the Seas had been booked for months at Grand Cayman for October 15, 2022. She was just booked at Astoria, Oregon on September 28th, 2022, when it appears she does a coastal sailing and then Panama Canal Sailing taking her back to the Caribbean for winter of 2022-23.
  4. Jewel had a combined Med and Baltic season prior to being the only ship in the Baltic and even taking on the Adventure sailing. Jewel was booked previously at Barcelona for the Spring and Fall. Jewel is now also booked for the 2022 season as well for the Baltic sailings.
  5. With both Astoria, OR and Catalina, CA having updated their cruise schedules, the Astoria call for "Voyager of the Seas" on June 26th is still on the books. "Voyager of the Seas" starts to appear at Catalina, CA from July 3rd and continues with 4 port booking through the end of September. This is a similar pattern to Carnival's 3 and 4 night sailings out of Los Angeles. I have not been able to get into Ensanada bookings yet. I wonder if this could already be Navigator if she has been freed up now with the move of Freedom.
  6. They had planned on Jewel for these sailings from the start and seem to have moved to Radiance when they moved Jewel to the Baltic and Northeast . These seem to have been booked in port originally as Jewel when they moved her from Dubai. http://creative.rccl.com/Sales/Royal/Deployment/2021_2022/RD_Caribbean.pdf
  7. This explains finally the disappearance of Freedom from the radar as none of her ports post schedules any longer. Here is the Freedom deployment flyer : http://creative.rccl.com/Sales/Royal/Deployment/2021_2022/19071003_FR_Caribbean.pdf
  8. These changes have been in the works for months. I had first noticed the Grand Cayman bookings for Explorer back in May of 2020. I am not sure if the deployment announcements have been posted yet. The San Juan move happened back in July with port bookings.

  9. Serenade is still booked at Grand Cayman on Oct. 15. 2022 indicating they were not planning on her returning to Australia for the 22/23 season. This call has been booked since May of 2020 and so far still stands.
  10. Pure Speculation not based on port bookings, but, being these sailing are in 2023 and the fact that Adventure is booked only one season at Barcelona, Navigator could do the short cruise season at Barcelona in 2022 and then if RCG get incentives yet again to return to Dubai, she could do a winter Dubai season and then do a Japan or Hawaii crossing to SFO, LAX or SAN. They could even throw in a short Holy Land season prior to the Suez Canal sailing. This would even give shore power conversion opportunities at Cadiz or Singapore or other shipyard prior to arrival on the west coast. I keep seeing quotes that RCI have 14 ships with 'shore power' but I can not find a list of them anywhere.
  11. Well, 2023 has actual bookings now. Interesting they chose to move Navigator, at least as the place holder.
  12. Navigator of the Seas has just been booked for summer of 2023 at Monterey, California on 7 and 14 night intervals on Tuesdays. This appears to be in addition to the discussed possible 2021 Mexican sailings that are being considered. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23684-royal-caribbean-evaluating-west-coast-cruise-program.html June 6, Tuesday 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Navigator of the Seas June 13, Tuesday 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Navigator of the Seas June 20, Tuesday 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Navigator of the Seas June 27, Tuesday 7:00 a.m - 5:00 p.m. Navigator of the Seas July 11, Tuesday 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Navigator of the Seas July 18, Tuesday 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Navigator of the Seas July 25, Tuesday 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Navigator of the Seas August 1, Tuesday 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Navigator of the Seas August 15, Tuesday 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Navigator of the Seas August 22, Tuesday 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Navigator of the Seas
  13. Adventure has been booked at Funchal, Madeira on September 23rd, 2021. The sailing is from Barcelona via Cartegena, Spain and returns via Lisbon, Portugal. It appears they are planning some longer sailings following the deployed 4 and 5 night Barcelona Sailings.
  14. The Jewel re-deployment sailings from Boston have been released. While the CPH - BOS Transatlantic is featured on the website it has not been added to the deployment schedule. http://creative.rccl.com/Sales/Royal/deployment/2021_2022/JW_2021_Canada.pdf
  15. Odyssey of the Seas has been booked at Villefranche for 3 dates in April 2021 prior to the current first sailing of April 30th from Civitavecchia . It is unclear if these would be from Rome or sailing out of Barcelona.
