One can only go by historical patterns, which say that anything not yet released comes out in March/April. RCI threw a curve ball two years ago and started trickling out some itineraries earlier.

Likely not be Passion or Pulse, fall of 2020, probably very similar to Spectrum (without all the Chinese sings).

The fall delivery ship usually has first steel cut around February 1, so we should have an announcement on the name very soon.  Unless they trademark another name in the meantime, Phenom of the Seas is most likely the name of the upcoming ship.  Itineraries will follow with the other March-April releases.

It was on a thread here.  From a speech that Bayley gave.

The Radiance of the Seas is scheduled to visit Hong Kong Kai Tak Cruise Terminal on 10/3/2020.  

Good find, thanks for posting.   This adds weight to the theory that she will sail across the North Pacific from Vancouver, down the coast of east Asia, dry dock in Asia (Singapore? ) and then head to Brisbane for the southern summer (h/t springaussie).  

Radiance still appears in the Darwin port calendar on Nov 9, 2020.   

Entries in the name of Vision of the Seas still appear in the Brisbane port calendar from Nov 16, 2020 through to April 2021.

Yes Geoff that seems to be the most likely thing that will happen.

Singapore dry dock then here in Brisbane.

The other outside possibly is they swap Radiance with Quantum in Singapore.

Pretty long odds on that one, but we can hope.  😀

 

What do you make of the Sydney port calendar?  In the latter part of the season, the name Ovation appears much more reguarly than is needed for one ship, but the name Radiance does not appear at all.  Do you think all the entries are for Serenade or is there more to it?  eg Quantum replacing Serenade for the last part of the season?  Or there was a plan that changed?

We are booked on the Serenade Sept 6, 2020 from Vancouver to Hawaii.  Great timing for my schedule, but it does seem to be a couple of weeks early to be leaving the Alaska run.  Or is that just my imagination?

On a side note.... it seems they now have the highest pricing when they release the cruises and then dump the pricing after the 90 day mark...

Just look at the Oasis TA! 🙄😱👎

I think transatlantics have a different typicla price progression than typical Caribbean cruises.  Even more specific, insides on transatlantics have a different price progression than suites on a transatlantic.

Did you check the current balcony pricing on the Oasis TA ? 🤔😱

 

No, we're not interested in any transatlantics on ships larger than Voyager class.

Don't blame you at all.... but not much choice this year on the Voyager-class... 🙄 😥

 

That's why we plan to do Rhapsody this year.  But we get Explorer next year!:classic_smile:

I agree with with you Bob - we have done TAs on Harmony - Radiance Class - Voyager Class - Vision class - we do like the smaller ships!!

 

We have TA this year on Brilliance - B2B with Baltics first and in 2020 we are doing Repo - Snowbird on Vision!  🙂

On another note - Does anyone have any idea when Vision sailings after 2 Nov 2020 will be released?

You still have to deal with 6500 people, which won't be very much fun if it's too cool for the pool deck outside.
