Deployment 2019-20 booking season begins

Recommended Posts

Usually the travel agents get it.

And every year since those speculation threads for the upcoming season are active, this deployment schedule has been published in the forum.

 

So you can take for granted it will happen again for the 2019/20 period.

Usually those deployment lists roll out in February, so in our case for 2019/20, we should have it by February 2018.

If RCI continues to publish next years itinerary in March/April the year before...

Awesome, good info. So each February is when to start looking. I see that once a year cruise leaving Copenhagen going west via an overnight in Iceland then Greenland, etc.. to Boston for 2018 is already sold out for suites and balconies. I know it's their most popular TA of the year. Wanting to look as early as possible for August 2019.

2018 Symphony, 2019 Oasis, 2020 Allure, 2021 Oasis newbuild...

2021 will also have Harmony in the Med after her first dry dock.

Let's see what is planned for Quantum otS - if she stays in China/Far East, or if she will be borught back to Europe as well. I'd really appreciate ths!

 

Since her first routine dry dock would be due in 2019, quite an interesting question...

Max Ovation went into an emergency dry dock in June at one of the Chinese ports.

Might change next year with NRD.

Non-refundable deposit.

Which we know is somewhat of a misnomer...as for reserving with that lower fare category...RCI actually keeps $100 in the event of a cancellation (prior to 75 days) and allows the remainder of the deposit amount to be used as a deposit on a future cruise.

With a one-year time limit.

Yup...thanks for adding that Bob. :D

 

It certainly reduces any risk in the event needing to make a change. Considering the price difference at booking time, it's a good choice for many folks.

Please help me understand the situation regards ships in Asia. Mariner will be coming to the U.S., Voyager apparently is moving to Europe, who knows what is happening to Quantum. That leaves Spectrum, once released. Who they have Spectrum, Ovation and Quantum all in the Far East? What ship will handle S.E.Asia?. I'm so confused.

Tid bits may be learned over the next few months but we won't know for sure till next March when itineraries come out.

RCL appears to have more ships in the MED for the late summer season, with Brilliance moving to the MED from Amsterdam for a 2 month season, returning to Tampa with Rhapsody just prior to Thanksgiving 2019.

 

Voyager or Quantum appear to have a late summer/fall season in the MED prior to sailing most likely eastbound toward Dubai, Singapore or Sydney.

Mariner, China, Shanghai / Singapore.

 

Mariner in Miami until at least May 3, 2019... unless you feel Mariner is heading back around the world to Asia after a season doing the Bahamas

Thanks. There are going to be even more mistakes as this was just first addition and there are several missed updates.

2019-20 Summer / Winter Deployment predictions

 

 

 

Deployment prediction port booking confirmed

 

 

 

Adventure, Port Everglades / Bayonne Summer season

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where did you see Adventures’ confirmation for Bayonne (Cape Liberty) in the summer/fall season 2019?

I usually browse the Portland/Maine Cruise schedule and did not see any calls for 2019.

Further I do not find any other port schedules for East Coast USA/Canada that show any 2019 calls...

Based prediction on Cayman port schedules at the moment. All predictions subject to change as usual.

Enchantment is in Galveston from June 2018 through April 2019. Are you expecting a different ship to take her place?

 

Edit. Saw your update.

I thought Allure was already posted as moving to Miami in November 2018 (through April 2019), with Harmony staying in Port Everglades?

I think has to do with Oasis in Europe for dry dock Summer 2019.

Port Canaveral will need a replacement Oasis ship.
