Majesty of the seas moving to New Orleans in January

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Not sure if I missed the announcement.

 

While looking on the Royal site, I see 7 Night Western Caribbean and Bahamas cruises. Staring Jan 11 2020

Empress is staying in Miami and doing 5-8 Night Western Caribbean and Bahamas cruises

I definitely did not see that announcement. Very interesting move. Glad to see them back in New Orleans even if it is just MJ.

Just noticed that as well.  Never saw the announcement.  Guess we know what MJ will be doing for the short term.

Glad I get to sail on her before she leaves Florida. Maybe if she stays passed April 2020, I might have to sail on her again and visit New Orleans! 

 

Do you think she will move back to Florida after April or be done with RCCL?

I think it depends on the Cuba situation at the time they make this decision.

As Pullmantur just anounced exit of Zenith and plans for growth Majesty should go there from April 2020. Monarch goes to Europe and her spot for Caribbean cruises should be filled with Majesty.

I just got the email from Royal announcing bookings now open for Majesty from New Orleans and Empress from Miami.

Also, per email, Empress will be the only RC ship visiting the Virgin Gorda Baths in 2020.

 I haven't been looking ahead lately. Thanks for this post, I'd consider a 7 day , with hopefully at least 4 ports, on MJ if it hits a few ports, hopefully 1 new one.

Ok, something else for me to research.

Not known at this time. They just published that Zenith leaves in January 2020, cruises until April are canceled and cruises from April will be taken over by Monarch.

Well, at least it leaves a space for Majesty.

Got an e-mail today from RC. Available to book and has some good prices. No announcement on RC website.

 

According to a couple of blogs, this is relocation from the Cuba cruises.

Did they just refund everyone booked for Cuba in 2020 and start fresh here?

The old schedule,  that had the Cuba cruises, only extended to  December, so these are brand new itineraries for both ships.

I found an article on line from Travel Agent Central indicating that the Majesty would stay in New Orleans year round.  Itineraries/booking now available through April, 2020.  Sailings for May 2020 through April, 2021 are supposed to open the week of July 22.  Let's hope that this is accurate--I'd love to have  RC ship here all year!

I saw this too and as a fellow NOLA resident, I'm stoked!

yet our local media hasn't said a single thing about it that I can find.

    No, I had a January 2020 Cuba cruise booked.  They cancelled the booking and issued me a FCC.  I took a while for

   them to get to the 2020 bookings since they repriced all of the 2019 sailings first.

Thanks for that, guess I never looked at the Cuba MJ and EM bookings for 2020.

Hope you were able to find a nice replacement cruise.

Well if the levy breaks which seems a recent concern...They'll be lots of water for her to sail through.

I would love to sail out of and visit NOLA but was always hoping to do it on a bit larger ship than Majesty.
