So what you are saying that RCL is stupid enough to exile 2 brand new technological Quantum class to Bayonne.:classic_rolleyes:

No not at all. How did you draw such a conclusion???

Remember reading that Royal made certain guarantees to Port Authority of NY/NJ in order to obtain funding for terminal improvements.  Believe one was that a Q class ship would be permanently based there.  Doubt PANYNJ would be happy with reduction in port charges if Royal replaced Anthem (4200 passengers double occupancy) with Adventure (3100) or even a Freedom class (3600) for an extended period. 

 

I think your numbers for the capacity of Freedom and Adventure are the original ones, after numerous dry docks inventing new placed to add cabins both the Freedom and Voyager Class caught up to the Quantum Class. Let's see what will happen during dry dock of Anthem, sure a few places to "amplify" with new cabins will be found :D

Since Royal now has more and more ships can we dream of gettimg more ships too?  Would love a Radiance or Vision class ship that do longer cruises and go to more interesting ports.

Quantum Ultra 2 will debut in NYC in 2020 following the departure of Anthem to the UK.

 

Royal Caribbean studied an Oasis-class ship departing from Bayonne during the summer season.  

 

Officers often leak information during their gatherings, but you have to "take it with a grain of salt..."

I swear that the officers just leak fake information to passengers just to get rid of them and then laugh once that passenger starts posting supposed top secret information.

Good news. Anthem is a good fit for the climate sailing from Beautiful and Gorgeous Bayonne.

Liberate her from across the pond and bring her back home. :classic_tongue:

A year old, but should still be accurate

^ Legend is gone and Symphony is missing. Also some of the ship's capacities are a bit off.

We won't know anything for sure until the actual itineraries come out in December.

Unfortunately, Quantum 5 will be powered by LNG.  From my understanding, Bayonne is not equipped for this kind of ship.  So I think this rules out Quantum 5 and the Icon class.

Very few places have LNG in place to support cruise ships at this point, but both CCL and RCCL are putting this support infrastructure into place (Carnival has LNG ships coming first like AidaNova). BTW, where did you get info that Q5 is LNG? Icon is LNG powered but have not seen anything to indicate Q5 is (Spectrum isn't).

Anyone have any guess as to which ship will be replacing Anthem in Bayonne when she sails to Europe in 2020?

 

It appears that Adventure of the Seas will likely be the only Royal Caribbean ship in Bayonne during the summer of 2020. The 9 night Bermuda/Caribbean sailings always depart on a Thursday, arrived in Bermuda on Saturday and then arrived in St. Maarten on a Monday. Adventure will have 9 night itineraries on: 05.21.20, 06.18.20, 07.02.20, 07.03.20, and 08.14.20…In between those sailings, Adventure will still offer 5 night Bermuda sailings.
 
However, I spoke with someone who is aboard Anthem right now and she said that she asked an officer aboard the ship what they thought, and they mentioned that they believe a Freedom Class ship will be sent to Bayonne in 2020. We may just have to wait until the week of December 10th to find out (when Royal officially released the Summer 2020 Itineraries)

That would help with some of the Canada/NE itineraries! We may just have to wait until the week of December 10th to find out (when Royal officially released the Summer 2020 Itineraries).

Rumor going around on Facebook is that at the captains corner on Anthem the captain said Royal is considering Oasis from Bayonne during the summer season and that this could be an ongoing rotation: Anthem from Bayonne during winter season, Oasis during summer.

 

Does Oasis have retractable smoke stacks?  Can Bermuda handle Oasis size?  I’ve heard different opinions with the consensus Oasis can’t fit in Bayonne, but do we truly know that?

Oasis had retractable stacks when she was first built, but I don't think they have been used since.    I doubt if they are functional anymore.

You are right,  They haven't plus non retractable scrubbers have be structurally added. I guess at dry dock that can be changed. Sounds like a lot of work and expense for part of a season in Bayonne. 

 

I will I’ll consider it though, if the price is right.  Well, maybe just not the first sailing. 😉
