Deployment 2021-22 booking season begins

Recommended Posts

We were waiting for Ovation in Sept. 2021 Vancouver to Hawaii trip and according RCI Ovation will go from China or somewhere in that area to Seattle with no cruise to Hawaii.  They did say that all schedules will be out by Dec. so maybe they will change their mind but not sounding good.

Three "leaked" European itineraries are on the website: Jewel from Amsterdam , Harmony from Barcelona, and Rhapsody from Venice. 

Looking quite expensive, but they are in June, hoping we can do better in April and May.

European cruises have tended to be what I consider to be stupidly expensive for the last 3 or 4 years. We have found we can cruise cheaper in the Caribbean than in our own "backyard", even when you add in the cost of flights across the pond. :classic_sad:

This is at the bottom of the Odyssey flyer:

 

SUMMER 2021 Sailing from Rome, Italy 7-12 Night Mediterranean, Greek Isles and Holy Land

 

Is Holy Land a new itinerary?

Can you please post a screen shot of this? This is wonderful news as I really want to sail on Odyssey and we're planning the Holy Land for next year. 🥰

That’s my hope too. We generally sail early/late seasons to save money. Fingers crossed!

Gonna be pulling into Barcelona April 7, 2021, on Jewel OTS, hoping some other Med cruises will be available as Jewel scheduled for dry dock.

Radiance Vancouver - Hawaii Sept 2021 also out

 

I was disappointed with the itinerary — 6 days at sea out of Vancouver (normally 5) to Hawaii, and only 3 ports of call, with no overnight —  Hilo, Kona, Lahaina — before reaching Honolulu.  And the prices are through the roof, IMO.  I do this sailing almost ever year and don’t see how anyone would book this one.

There is notably no Ovation itinerary to Hawaii at the end of the season.  Makes me wonder what else may be planned - a return to Asia, or maybe some west coast itineraries.

 

There is no Ovation or Serenade schedules after the Alaska 2021 runs.  Curious to know what is in store for those ships.

Radiance is really expensive and new cabin categories that are ridiculously expensive.

 

Are those the new “spa suite” categories that are glorified balcony cabins?

No way they keep these prices.

 

Usually, Rhapsody for 7 days is around 1500$ for balcon cabins, not 3500$. I guess they are messing around (again) in their system.

Waiting on British Isles in july 2021...noticed Jewel does this in may 2021....

Pricing is way past rediculous....Azamara prices for RCCL?
.unless they have great black friday deal, they priced me out of the market.

If I book a non-refundable cabin & the price goes down do I get the price reduction just by calling or do I have to cancel & rebook?  I was just doing some mock bookings are they didn't even give me the option of refundable.

Probably because you didn’t go far enough into the booking.

Just contact whoever booked your cruise. 

 

Unless you are booking a guarantee or Grand Suite or better, you should be able to see refundable fares.  However, Royal has purposely made this very tedious to do by requiring you to enter all the passenger data before you get to the page to select refundable.

Yes, there were spa balconies that include a spa treatment but the aft facing balconies are also in a category by themselves at a premium cost, as much as $1,500 higher on some sailings.  Connecting cabins had a separate category and higher price and they are also charging as much as $401 extra for a balcony on the preferred side of the ship on the preferred side of the ship.  Over $5k for a small balcony cabin for 7 days is crazy!

We also know Odyssey will be in Rome Summer of 2021. So it's really Southampton, Copenhagen and maybe one other port that we are waiting for.

I just called Royal cause the Ocean View Balcony on Odyssey is still listed on their site as 119sq ft with an 80ft balcony. I was told the cabins are actually 198sq ft with a 50ft balcony.

Thanks for keeping up with all of this.  Any bookings in the Canary Islands or Gibraltar that would allude to possible Eastbound TAs in March/April/May 2021?  I'm assuming there won't be a San Juan TA so possibly Vision through the Canaries to Barcelona would be similar.

If Explorer does Miami to Southampton, Madeira ports seems to show the ship coming in from the Canary Islands. 

 

It looks like Jewel may head down to Barcelona for a mini season following Amsterdam and may do the Canary Islands in October heading to Tampa.
