  1. RCI owns the charter airline, Wamos Air. It was the former Pullmantur Air. They have 10 wide body aircraft, but have converted 2 of those to cargo during the pandemic.
  2. Definitely. There are so many Domestic and International regular and charter flights to Cancun.
  3. Great solution for Vision. I will definately consider this sailing. I guess the best flight options are United from EWR and American from MIA. BA from London is great for Europeans as well. Round trips are often $300 to $400 when on offer from the US.
  4. Catalina is separate. They had Voyager booked for a long while and then the bookings shifted a few months ago to Navigator. https://www.lovecatalina.com/community-information/catalina-cruise-ship-schedule/2022-cruise-ship-schedule/
  5. The Navigator bookings for Catalina Island for 2022 are still showing as they have been for months. The Navigator bookings for Monterey are still there for 2023.
  6. I was on the Legend of the Seas sailing from Oslo in 2014 and just checked my guest invoice and I paid a total of $849 solo for that years 14 day TA. I did book a GTY cabin just a few weeks out though. That one had an overnight in Reykjavik that arrived early AM and that is something I would miss. It was great the way they had the booked rental cars just waiting in the port upon the ship's arrival. I am glad to see that Voyager is doing the Boston Canada season!
  7. The only ship that Royal had booked already for Maine ports previously for 2022 was Empress of the Seas. With Jewel heading to the MED and then possibly on to Dubai, it would seem that Voyager would likely head over to Boston or Bayonne. It would seem likely that in addition to Anthem that Oasis and then one other ship would do Canada / NE sailings as well. There are not port bookings currently to accurately predict the season.
  8. On an interesting side note, RCI just booked Grandeur of the Seas at Gran Cayman for a single call on May 4th, 2023. It would seem to be a transition sailing where they are moving the ship from possible New Orleans to another US port.
  9. Astoria Oregon port schedules show both Radiance and Serenade moving coastal following the Alaska sailings. Radiance bookings are limited in the Caribbean for 22-23 and it is hard to figure out. Serenade was booked almost a year ago to at Grand Cayman for the move to Miami and now confirmed with Astoria and Miami/Key West / Haiti booking.
  10. Serenade of the Seas has been booked for sailings from Miami for the winter season 2022 - 23 and will replace Jewel of the Seas. That would allow Jewel of the Seas to return to Dubai for the winter 2022-23 among other options. Grandeur of the Seas has been booked for a few sailings out of New Orleans from May to November 2021, but they still have Majesty as a place holder going forward into 2023. While unlikely these sailings will happen, it is interesting to see Grandeur still in the mix.
  11. Grandeur of the Seas has currently been booked out of New Orleans from May of 2021. She is currently only booked from May to October 2021 for most weeks at Key West. There would be a lot of uncertainty around that but the bookings were just recently made.
  12. RCG's 49% interest in Pullmantur Cruise retained the ownership of the vessels along with the aircraft held by Wamos. RCG would have received payment from the cruise line for use of the ships and the provision of management and operations of the deck and engine for the ships. Pullmantur ran the hotel and travel and tourism section of the business. They are in a very sensitive situation now with the company having taken a 'ERTE where the wages under the first part are paid by the Spanish government. The 270 remaining employees have most recently claimed that RCG is continuing operat
  13. Another mystery has been the booking in the past week for Adventure at Palma de Mallorca on June 3 and then in September as well. They show the ship heading to Ibiza and then there is no booking at Ibiza, so I guess it is a fluke. P202200577 ADVENTURE OF THE SEAS BAHAMAS 311 9 137 276 2? ALIN.

  14. Funchal bookings were updated now taking away the INDY bookings for 2022. So, no INDY at Southampton. It seems they have been going back and forth as to whether to have Vision or Jewel at Amsterdam or Barcelona. It seems there may be some sailings from Tarragona, Spain in the late 2022 season. They have been trying to attract RCL to do turn- arounds from there, but I am unsure if that has moved forward. Jewel does seem to move south to the MED prior to a transatlantic. I found it interesting that when they booked the Odyssey of the Seas call
  15. Anthem will do varried sailings and they will not repeat with any frequency.
