2013/2014 Deployment Schedule(for bookings)

Recommended Posts

I am a little disappointed that the fares out of Baltimore were about $150 higher than out of NJ . But at least it will be a few ports that I haven't been to in 15 years. That is for the West Car. normally I end up East

Yep just booked a WC cruise out of BWI Feb 8th 2014

 

CONGRATS! That was quick. ;) I'll have to spend a little bit more time pouring over the options before I re-book or cancel my Princess cruise for this October.

you're right . . now that's a good itin

 

RCI could have done the same. Just do a one-way Boston-Quebec then the repositioning to Tampa. Easy enough. :rolleyes:

I wasn't logged in either and was still seeing them. :confused:

 

Oh, well. Everyone is happy now! :D

 

I could see the Brilliance repo yesterday and I wasn't logged in. Maybe it was rolled out little by little. Odd.

 

Or was it Grandeur repo that wasn't being seen? Or both? I'm confused - I think. Haha

They could have, but the fact is that they didn't. Brilliance will be sailing out of Quebec City this fall before repositioning to NJ and eventually to San Juan, but in 2013 she will be following Jewel's example and visiting Maine, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, before repositioning from Boston to Tampa.

Hi Kathy,

 

Could you please post the itineraries for the Liberty anywhere from March 1-16th, 2014 when you start to see them coming up in cruising power. I know they will not be released until the 23rd but I was hoping you would see the actual dates sooner.

 

Many thanks,

Donna

We now know that the Legend is taking over the Mariner's Europe itinerary in 2013 (almost identical itinerary). So it appears Mariner will be heading to Asia to replace the Legend.

Great thread - thanks for the continuous updates on release dates. Was able to book one (of the two) accessable JS on the BR repo.

 

When there are only 2 cabins total - you sure need to jump early!

ROYAL CARIBBEAN ANNOUNCES A TOTAL OF NINE SHIPS TO

PLY EUROPEAN WATERS IN 2013

Legend of the Seas and Vision of the Seas Complete Cruise Line’s Europe 2013 Deployment

 

MIAMI, May 17, 2012 – Royal Caribbean International today announced that Legend of the Seas and Vision of the Seas will complete the cruise line’s Europe 2013 deployments, totaling nine Royal Caribbean ships in the region. Legend of the Seas and Vision of the Seas augment already announced U.K.-based Independence of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas and Brilliance of the Seas, Barcelona-based Liberty of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas, andItaly-based Navigator of the Seas and Splendour of the Seas to offer vacationers a sum of 276 sailings to 88 culture-rich ports on 58 exciting Europe itineraries. Legend of the Seas and Vision of the Seas’ Europe 2013 season is open for sale.

 

“Royal Caribbean offers families and couples the best cruise ships to create or renew a Europe adventure of a lifetime,” said Betsy O’Rourke, senior vice president of Marketing, Royal Caribbean International. “Nearly every ship will have undergone revitalizations and enhancements to offer vacationers the most innovative and modern fleet in Europe. Couple that with exciting itineraries to the must-see destinations and our friendly and engaging Gold Anchor Service, you have a foolproof formula for an unforgettable Europe vacation.”

 

In May and August, Vision of the Seas will alternate seven-night Norwegian Fjords and Scandinavia & Russia itineraries from Copenhagen, Denmark. The ship also will offer seven-night Scandinavia & Russia sailings from Stockholm in July. Two Ultimate Scandinavia & Russia itineraries each feature two overnights in St. Petersburg, one sailing on June 19 from Copenhagen on an 11-night itinerary that concludes with an overnight at Stockholm, and the second on July 28 from Stockholm on a 10-night itinerary that concludes with an overnight at Copenhagen. Additionally from Copenhagen, vacationers can select a 10-night British Isles cruise departing on Aug. 7, or an 11-night sailing on June 8 that ventures up the Norwegian Coast and beyond Latitude 66 North into the Arctic Circle.

 

Vision of the Seas complements Independence of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas and Brilliance of the Seas’ Europe 2013 sailings in the North Sea. Brilliance of the Seas also will sail the North and Baltic seas, but on longer 10- to 11-night itineraries from Harwich, England. Independence of the Seas and Adventure of the Seas will homeport at Southampton, to offer a wide range of itineraries to the Baltics, British Isles, Mediterranean and Canary Islands.

 

Legend of the Seas divides its Europe summer between the homeports of Rome (Civitavecchia) and Venice. From May through August, the ship sails a seven-night Western Mediterranean itinerary, calling at Genoa, Italy; Provence (Marseilles), France; and Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, and Valencia, Spain. A nine-night circumnavigation of the Italian peninsula, departing Aug. 31, brings Legend of the Seas to Venice, where the ship will offer vacationers a pair of 10-night Greek Isles and 11-night Greece & Turkey itineraries in Sept. and Oct.

 

Legend of the Seas bolsters Navigator of the Seas and Splendour of the Seas sailings from Rome (Civitavecchia) and Venice, respectively. Navigator of the Seas offers seven-night Eastern Mediterranean and Greek Isles cruises, while Splendour of the Seas offers seven-night Adriatic and Greek Isles sailings.

 

And from Barcelona, Liberty of the Seas offers vacationers five- and seven-night Western Mediterranean cruises and Serenade of the Seas offer a selection of 12-night Mediterranean Greek Isles and Mediterranean Venice itineraries. Liberty of the Seas exclusively offers the DreamWorks Experience, featuring lovable characters such as Shrek and Fiona, Kung Fu Panda, and the stars of upcoming Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo, King Julien XIII, and Pengiuns Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico. Additionally, Liberty of the Seas will be the only cruise ship in the Mediterranean to feature Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted in 3D in the ship’s main theater when the movie opens on June 8, 2012, as well as the only fully-licensed production of West End-hit Saturday Night Fever.

 

Most every Royal Caribbean ship in Europe will have undergone revitalization and enhancements to offer guests of all ages the elevated standards of the cruise line, such as renewed staterooms with new flat-panel televisions, the Royal Babies and Tots Nursery for the youngest guests age six to 36 months old, bow-to-stern Wi-Fi service, an oversized LCD entertainment screen overlooking the main pool deck, a Diamond Lounge for Crown & Anchor Society loyalty members, and a Concierge Lounge for top-tier Crown & Anchor Society members and suite guests. Dining options also will be expanding and include popular experiences introduced aboard Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, such as Park Café deli, Izumi Asian Cuisine, Giovanni’s Table Italian trattoria, Chops Grille steakhouse, and an exclusive Chef’s Table dinner and wine pairing.

 

Vacationers also have greater flexibility as to when they would like their Royal Caribbean Europe vacation to begin. For Liberty of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas, Legend of the Seas and Splendour of the Seas, vacationers have the opportunity to embark at a subsequent port on the itinerary. Guests enjoy the full itinerary, but in a different order of ports, round-trip from their port of embarkation. Vacationers can choose to embark Liberty of the Seas at Toulon, France, or Naples, Italy; Navigator of the Seas at Messina, Italy; Legend of the Seas at Marseilles, France, or Genoa, Italy; and Splendour of the Seas at Bari, Italy.

We are excited about Vision and the possibility of a b2b. If our calculations are correct--it would be Aug 17 and Aug 24.

 

Can anyone verify these dates? Any ideas on price?

 

Thanks

Does anyone know why the Visions Transatlantic disappeared a few days ago?

 

I wish that Royal would offer a better ship than the Vision for their Arctic circle trip. I am currently booked on the Celebrity Constellation for a similar itinerary.

 

I was hoping for a better TA itinerary. Really hoped the Mariner was making the trip. I have the Navigator booked for 2013 and still and debating which trip I will keep (one will get canceled). I enjoyed my TA, but not thrilled with stops on the Navigator.

But probably only by a very small amount. How would you get her there considering the financial disaster that was her previous around the Horn cruise from Florida to California?:confused: I don't think the new locks will be ready by then. In fact I haven't seen anything that indicates how close they are in keeping to the original schedule. Perhaps someone has recent information and can update us on their progress.
