Would they be preparing to come to Australia???

Maybe picking up supplies (c19 test kits)  and then off to pick up crew for our season??

 

 I was in a small fishing port Eden a few days ago and was talking to the harbour master. I asked if there’s word about our cruise season.He said it’s definitely NOT going to happen .
But cruise lines are still advertising and selling.

I was also speculating about this being the repositioning for Radiance back to oz. But Australia's borders still remain closed. And the fact that Radiance is going to Malaysia, that usually doesn't happen on repositioning cruises to Oz. She would go straight to Indonesia, then Darwin. Hmm..

If there’s a possibility of a season .Royal would have to have a process in place and to show the Australian authorities how they would manage testing and how they would manage  the virus.
Singapore has a world Standard in health Australian authorities will recognise.
 

Maybe pick up philpino crew ,go to Singapore and get some test kits ,a couple of doctors and then some more crew in different places??????
 

We have all lost hope of a season here but who knows.

Radiance has appeared on Singapore's port schedule on 30/09/2020 from HK with it's next destination stated as Port Klang. That seems very odd. Anybody knows the reason for this?

Radiance of the Seas also appears in Kai Tak cruise terminal schedule on Sat 26 September from 0900 to 2359. It is showing as transit.

I have a question since people are talking about OZ.  Right now I have booking for the bottom end route next March which I think has probability of not going. That being said.I know cruise line contracts say they can change ports at will but what happens if they send down a different ship.  Does the contract say they can do that as well as long as it’s the same number of days and basically starts and ends in the appropriate ports?

March next year you won’t be coming to Australia,I m very confident in my thoughts.

I'm still not seeing the Ovation TP leg from Vancouver to Hawaii.  Am I missing it somewhere?  I see the 3 night from Seattle to Vancouver and the 17 night from Hawaii to Sydney, but nothing in between.

Unrelated to the transpacifics discussion, but do we have any idea what ship will be doing the 3/4 night Bahamas cruises from Miami in 21-22? It was supposed to be Liberty, but she was kept in Galveston.

Allure is just one year delayed for Galveston, Liberty will leave then.

Off topic, but interesting.

Just saw on social media that Jewel will be going in for a brief re-fit on the 15th Feb

That might mean the Ta will leave from Galveston on the 22nd March

Yes, I know that. But Liberty was scheduled to leave Galveston for Miami in October 2021 and begin sailing the 3/4 night Bahamas cruises (replacing Navigator, which is scheduled to move to Port Everglades). Now that Liberty is staying in Galveston, there is no ship for those short cruises.

Nope, only doing Bahamas just out of FLL and Port Canaveral during that 5 month period. Tons other Royal ships doing 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 niters out of the 4 Florida Ports. I'm actually pleased with Florida choices, have 12 Booked in 2021. Only Cruise on Radiance or Vision Class so I'm usually limited. But only so many Ships to go around, probably be less in 2021.

I don’t know when it opened, but Quantum OTS is now open for booking re: EB TP cruise, HNL-SYD (18nts, 5 ports).  It doesn’t show up in the list of transpacific cruises on Royal’s site (if you use the filter), but it’s the only Quantum cruise when I looked at October 2021.  
 

I thought the rates were good, especially for junior suites, under $2k/pp for the NRD cruise fare w/out any C&A discounts.

From the Ta fb roll call

 

Just got an email from RCC saying Jewel is not coming to the Caribbean and is being replaced by Liberty. I was booked on an 8 day cruise from the 14th of March until the 22nd. That is changed to Liberty a 7 day western Caribbean cruise which arrives back in Galveston on the 21st. When I called RCC to check on the Trans Atlantic Galveston to Barcelona it no longer is in there system. The Jewel is not coming to the Caribbean this fall at all. It appears they are going to use Liberty for the fall Caribbean cruises since she is already there. My reservations still show in the planner but they will change shortly

 

If they will not bring Jewel to Caribbean this year she might go to Cold Layup until Europe Season 2021. Would make sense as likely we will not see a Caribbean winter season 2020/2021.

What did it say specifically about Jewel TA Rome to Galveston November 26 2020 ? If any thing, because it’s still open for  booking  as of now .

The Ta this year wasn't mentioned.

I'm on Anthem Ta in November and Norwegian has cancelled flights. Only 7 flights from NY to London for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday after the ship arrives. Not looking good. Although it might dock somewhere else and give NY a miss. Ok, I'm dreaming.

For some reason RCL is not successfull with these cruises, that's  why they pulled out again after one season.
