I wonder if it gets to a certain point, if we'd be able to get Royal Caribbean to give us space for a Meet & Mingle, even if it is only a three night cruise I think it would be hard to just "meet at the pool bar wearing beads" if there are 250 of us
It's possible, but I suspect the folks in Miami would not care too much for us. However, I'll bet John Denton (if he's still there for this cruise) would put something on for us.

This is not surprising. It may be months before we really know when the last cruise will be.

The Monarch does not show up on the April 2013 schedule. We were just on it last week and that was all that was talked about when we were booking.

I truly hope they change the date though........and bring the prices down.......as much as I enjoyed the MN(but not as much as the Sovereign),Im not sure it's worth that much for 3 nights..

and I'm Karen going with my husband Jim.

FWIW - I doubt RCI will change the date as they have a schedule at Freeport for the refit to Pullmantur. The only way the date would be changed would be if Freeport decides it won't be ready to receive Monarch.

I'm Karen and will be traveling with my friend, Cheryl from Virginia (who will be popping in here at some point, I'm sure).

I really hope they keep the same date. She's being transferred to Pullmantur on April 1 - that date has been publicized so I can't imagine the date being pushed out later. Every cruise ship sails over Easter weekend every year so I don't imagine that would even be a remote consideration for RCI. Besides, if they move it to an earlier date, I probably won't be able to go, unless it's the prior weekend's 3 nighter. All other dates would be out for me.
