Some people have reported trying to book Allure for Feb 18th sailing, but reservations being closed. When they called RC, they a ‘code red’ was going. Not sure what is. Any ideas?

If you mean Feb 2019, then that could be a charter. If you mean 2018, then I'm stumped. Hope it does not get cancelled this close in.

Confused as well. For us Code Red was when there was a Noro Virus issue and extra hygiene measures were taken. :confused:

My experience has been code red turns into a charter cruise.

Mine too, but I cannot imagine being notified of a charter less than a week before my cruise.

Makes me wonder too. I booked this past Saturday with no issues. I booked a guarantee but have not been assigned a room yet. Others tried to book later in the day Saturday and couldn’t, with an explanation of this ‘code red’. Curious what’s going on.

Code Red. Charter of Full, don't sell anymore. Booking a Guarantee you can get room assignment right away, later, or even at port when boarding...

I know the ship is chartered THIS week, but no idea about next week.

 

Unless there has been an outbreak and our ship will have to undergo deep cleaning before we can board?

In addition to a charter a Code Red is also used when they are overbooked or have guarantees to assign to get a final tally on available staterooms.

Reading a Group Document from Royal Caribbean International A "Code Red" is "a sail dates that are at risk of being oversold"

It also applies to any sailing that they have closed for booking.  This includes charters and redeployments.

Only part of it. It also applies to any sailing that they have closed for booking.  This includes charters and redeployments.

Code Red means that the sailing is closed to any new bookings. It can be closed for a variety of reasons, such as a major itinerary change, the cruise is being cancelled or the cruise is being chartered. It can also be code red if they are doing a major pricing review.  Simply it just stops new people booking.
