If you refer to Voyager she is older than all Radiance class ships. Jewel is 5 years younger than Voyager.

Agree. Royal built the Radiance Class to include best of Vision and Voyager Classes

Huh? This doesn’t make sense. 

Anyways... for another discussion without hijacking this thread

 

so Springaussie or Geoff, you’re thinking a bigger ship from the USA possibly through the PC, and then off to Oz to join Ovation in Sydney (with Voyager leaving the area)? Or are you thinking possibly a longer full season deployment in LA?

Was many articles back then and said by at least 2 Royal Capts to us while on board. Voyager had all the extras, first with multiple Restaurants inc pay. Vision had the openness, glass. Out of it Radiance Class was designed with best of both. I even remember when heard about Voyager Class 23+yrs ago. Think was called Project Eagle. Back then wasnt much info on the Internet, though I been on Cruise Critic since 1997

Most of the time they do not release the ship name and exact itinerary until bookings open.  There will be speculation on this (and other) threads about what ship and ports etc but  no official pre-release of the ship and specific ports, dates, etc.  You just have to go with history and speculation and know what cabin/category you want to try for on the speculated  ship(s).

I know I want a corner Aft balcony....that is my only must have for Alaska...

I am looking into the current sailings....and was wondering if the 7-nights from Seattle always leave on Fridays, or does the turn around day change every year?

Based on port bookings it looks like Voyager might relocate from Singapore (after second dry dock) to the US via the east coast of Australia in June 2021.  Departure from Sydney would be June 10.  I have no idea if she will cruise Mexico and/or Pacific coastals.  The article on Mazatlan isn't conclusive.  Voyager is not well suited to Alaska so I guess she will head through the Panama.  

The replacement for Voyager in Australia appears to be a Quantum class ship from Asia, arriving in Sydney early Nov 2021 and staying through to June 2022.  I'm guessing this ship will spend the southern winter in Asia.

I went to a travel show here in Arizona today.  There was a presentation by a Royal Caribbean representative and when she was talking about all the new ships coming out over the next few years she stated that the first ship of the Icon series would be stationed in California, but that they did not know yet whether that will be San Diego or Los Angeles.  I do believe she was mentioning sometime in 2021, but am not sure if I remember correctly.

That is interesting news about Icon. The first Icon Class ship is currently due out in Q2, 2022.

Thanks for sharing the info from the presentation.

It might be possible that with 1 Quantum class in China and 1 coming down to Aus (speculated), IE, Spectrum and Quantum, that both ships will alternate in Singapore to make Singapore still having year round deployment. Quantum starting with Nov 2021 - April/May 2022 and then May/June 2022 - Nov 2022 taken over by Spectrum. 

 

Also might see Icon going to China as well, cause they can't be shipless.

Haven’t they got enough oasis class?

 

My thoughts it will be Asianised for Singapore and oz

 

It wouldn't require heavy 'asianization' if it was only going to Singapore and Aus, unlike Spectrum for China.

The representative started talking fairly fast at that point because she was running out of time, so I couldn't remember whether it was 2021 or 2022:)  Besides I was getting pretty excited about finally having a Royal ship within driving distance that I didn't pay that much attention to the timeframe.

ICON on the west coast almost makes sense.  Since ICON runs on liquefied natural gas (LNG), they will need a place to refuel.  There are no LNG facilities in Florida (yet) and I don't believe any are are currently under construction. There are several in Texas and one in Louisiana. There is also one in Mexico near Ensenada and one in Alaska.  Maybe they plan to use Ensenada for refueling?

Carnival Mardi Gras (debuting in 2021) will use LNG fuel, as well. The refueling plant is supposedly in Savannah, Georgia. I guess the fueling barge will travel to Port Canaveral every time Carnival Mardi Gras will need to refuel.

They need one more in the Caribbean with Galveston coming into the equation. 

 

IMO, an Oasis Class will come down-under in 2023 when the 6th ship is out. That gives them a few years to build enough ports large enough to take those ships.

She did mention that the ship will run on LNG that’s why they will be able to homeport in California since it will meet the strict regulations of the state. No mention about refueling was made but then again they were trying to get you to book cruises😏

As far as I can remember back, the AK RC sailings have left on Fridays. Although, I haven’t been paying attention to them for more than 3 years or so.

The east coast has LNG plant in Southern Maryland that has been operating for years, so the new ship could also replace the Grandeur out of Baltimore.  Most of the LNG are put on tankers for export, so going up the Chesapeake is a breeze to refuel the ship.

 

Or it could be based in New Jersey or Florida.

Icon in Baltimore? Definitely not happening - the bridges put a stop to that not to mention the difference in size/capacity between Grandeur & Icon.
