Not really - RCI will tell you anything to hang on to your money and do as little as possible (if you cancel they have to process that).

Usually yes...but that may not be the case with the Australia cruise market right now...stay tuned.

My nephew works for some marketing thing in Sydney and became  friends with people from RCG and carnival group  Australia.

They told him there jobs are on the line as they are going to threaten to pull out of Australian.
Won’t that put a nail in the coffin of the tourist industry.

 

The Oz Government has big decisions to make with the borers being closed. .

Heaps of Aussies are still stranded overseas from before pandemic starting.

Farmers are screaming for foreign workers like backpackers to pick the fruit that’’s  rotting in the fields owing to no one picking the crops.

Heaps of restaurants are shut in the outback because of no backpackers available to do work the tourist seasons. 
The Universities want the foreign students back on campus to fill thousands of spots available. 
Plus we are are aware of the issues for the cruise industry. No surprise they are considering leaving us.

What ship is supposed to replace Quantum in Singapore in November  if it was to go to Brisbane?

Theres a report that Wonder will start sea trials on the 30th of August.

Currently Voyager, booked a November cruise with port stops in Malaysia and Thailand, but considering the covid situation, that could change any minute. I suppose if port stops aren't possible and Quantum doesn't head to Brisbane, she might continue her cruises to nowhere instead of having Voyager take them.

99% those port call sailings will be cancelled.

Yep, expecting that to happen. Just as long as they don't cancel the double C&A points along with them, it's not too hard to go to Penang and Phuket next time anyway.

They haven't announced an extension of double point bookings.

I booked during the promotional period, but they did mention that any changes to the booking would render the promotion invalid, so just have to wait and see.

Yes. I think they made it quite clear that double points only apply if the sailing was booked by OCT 2021 and sailed before SEPT 2022. If your cruise is cancelled, one of these clauses is not meant, so it won't apply. At least you can still get back 125% FCC, so it's not terrible to keep waiting.

When did the booking date get extended from June 30?

I don’t think we will have any ships in November.

If Wonder does have sea trials in September you may have wonder by Christmas.

 

I hate to see what voyager looks like after 2 years,  just take it to the scrap yard.

I do not think Radiance will be much better. 

Voyager would make sense in Oz because she can dock at more places then Quantum if things get bad with the virus.

Spectrum is booked in Hong Kong until January 2022 so things must not be getting betting in China. Wonder Of The Seas in Singapore chances seems to be increasing as the days go by.

I think we will be stuck with voyager.

It can drift around on standby waiting for our temperamental governments.

 

Wonder has it’s transponder on ,life boats fitted and just trying to confirm a report of September sea trials.
I think we could see it in Singapore before it goes to China.

It would be good to have a travel bubble with Singapore.

Better not to use that word 'bubble'. It seems to curse us every time that word is announced with another country. HK bubble has popped 3x times. Likely that the promised SIN - AUS bubble will too.

 

I don't know whether the SG government would want Wonder here at the moment, that's up for debate as well.

What’s your speculation with Wonder?

 Delivered early and straight to China to take place of voyager?

 

And voyager?

Wonder will take over from Quantum in Singapore.

Voyager will go to Cadiz for a dry dock. Then after that do Christmas Greek Isle or Caribbean cruises. 
Voyager would make a great ship for Australia with being able to dock in more ports then Quantum Class.

That’s interesting about wonder taking over for Quantum in Singapore.

That announcement about quantum said it would have a extended season in Singapore and that’s all.

As far as Singapore is concerned,we can travel there with out quarantine.

But we can’t leave Australia and if we could there’s quarantine on return.

 

It would good to do a cruise on wonder,  say January.  Plus a few days in Singapore.

Quantum is staying till Feb in Singapore so unlikely Wonder can come over until Quantum leaves.

Where is Quantum going?  Staying in the Asia market area?  Its TP out of Brisbane on 11 Apr 2022 was cancelled.  I'm surprised to see Ovation is still scheduled for 10 Apr 2022 out of Sydney???

Aha! The first indication that's she's not going through the Panama Canal after her Cadiz drydock.... instead going the long way around the world just to get her to LA

I think Navigator can fit through the new Panama Canal locks but she is too tall to pass under the bridge (think it's called Bridge of the Americas).
