As a current connoisseur of connecting cabins for our kids... this is a very big risk/reward strategy.  
 

They’re attempting to monetize the value of connecting cabins (With a significant premium) for families but in reality it will probably price some families out of taking a RC Cruise.   Their “bet”’ is that the premium revenue collected wIll exceed the number of people that adversely select a competitor.  
 

What will we do?  Since we will have a 17 / 15 year old (at that time), we are fortunate not to NEED connecting rooms.  As a result we will not pay the premium and book non-connecting rooms. Then hope that this strategy gets reversed a can switch into a connecting room.
 

Am I upset that they’re implementing this pricing strategy? No.  They’re a for profit business and attempting to maximize their revenues.  I do the same (or inverse depending on your perspective) for my finances and look to minimize my expenses.  

I totally agree and think that if someone really wants this type of cabin they will pay for it. I imagine they either have these cabins as a separate category or are moving that way.   In the past, I have read people’s comments suggesting that you book such a room with an empty adjoining room in hopes that you will be upgraded or moved and compensated.  This keeps the rooms available for people who truly want them.  I think that is infinitely more fair than keeping them at the same price and people who need them not being able to get them or forcing other people to move to accomodate your desire for a connecting room.   Royal IS a business and I suppose they are trialling this as a way of revenue enhancement and as a way for people who most want access to be able to get that access. It’s been happening on airlines for a long time with charges for various preferred arrangements.

Adventure in the Seas seems to move to Europe and take the Explorer bookings. That is finally a move that makes total sense as Adventure is due for the revitalization and that can happen in Cadiz. 

 

 

I'm SO pumped for that. Is the amplification supposed to look like the Mariner/Navigator amps?

It appears only Anthem from what I'm reading on blog posts. But a great ship!

So what's left to take over from Anthem in Bayonne? Looking to tag a cruise on to a New York city break in early May 2021.

Hoping for a Quantum class or Symphony of the Seas. Though the chances are not looking good.

Any news on a possible 2021 Artic Crossing transatlantic sailing like the Sept 2, 2020 Brilliance from Amsterdam to Boston with Iceland and Greenland?

Reykjavik does not report this far out. Jewel heads to Barcelona from Amsterdam now, so it would have to be Adventure of the Seas from Stockholm if that or similar sailing will take place.

It has been confirmed in media release from Royal Caribbean that INDY is not crossing to Europe in 2021. 

 

INDY will most likely stay in PE or move to PC or Bayonne.

Indy in Bayonne would make me very happy. I will now be keeping fingers, legs and eyes crossed that your prediction is correct.

In the past, transatlantics have come out at various times, no reliable pattern.
