Freedom also seems high for seven day Jan/Feb 2022 itineraries from San Juan. 

 

I thought it was high for Oct Canada/NE. Basic balcony (there were about 7 choices) $2800 for refundable for two people. Everything else was higher. The new balcony categories are getting every last dime out of you. 'Spa' balconies with priority embark/debark? Everything is extra. Deck 8 air is extra.

I agree. They should have been departing on Thursday, and had Monday departures for 5 night Bermuda cruises.

We're looking at this cruise.  Looking at it the flip way, we like that it's Sat-Thurs as two days are over the weekend.  Really expensive though. As someone pointed out earlier, the taxes & fees are really high, and overall expensive for a 5 nighter.

The Bermuda 5 night out of Bayonne is always expensive. Best chances for a deal are May and September-November. June-August prices start high and get higher.

Anybody have any idea when we could see South East Asia/other exotic cruise line up announced on the opening schedule? Seems like it's taking a long time, especially the fact that we have to wait longer for the actual itineraries to be revealed. Thought that it should be out by now..

That will probably mean a Jewel Ta somewhere.

The  Jewel's latest-bookable cruise is a 12-night Greek Isles cruise from Barcelona Oct. 15-27, 2021. If it does a Transatlantic - it will probably be from Barcelona.

Not in November - her last sailing ends in Rome on 11/26/20.

As this refers to autumn 2020 Jewel is booked into late November with two holy land cruises. She will for sure not do an Iceland / Greenland transatlantic at this time of the year as she is not an ice breaker.
 

Maybe South America cruises come back? Or Panama Canal with West Coast?

Brilliance is doing an Iceland/Greenland Transatlantic from Amsterdam in September 2020. I know that island lady has been watching for a 2021 Transatlantic that will do the Iceland/Greenland route (as have many of us) , but if  there is one - it won't be on the Jewel.

I also noticed that Anthem Ta for Oct 2021 hasn't been released yet.

Canary Islands is the last cruise that returns to Southampton and the a jump to Cape Liberty sailings

Concerning Jewel of the Seas

 

In 2021-22 they had already booked her for Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings out of Miami. with calls at Key West, Grand Cayman and St. Maarten reserved. Those have not been changed since booking a few weeks ago. 

 

They have not booked those same ports yet for 2020-21 to replace the Dubai sailings. 

 

There are currently no Royal Caribbean bookings at Buenos Aires, Argentina and there is nothing yet to indicate a South American season. 

 

There is no evidence showing them leaving the ship in the MED either. Even though I would think that would be great, I can not see Royal doing that. Having done many winter sailings on larger MSC ships and a smaller NCL ship, the seas do get pretty rough at times on those sailings.

Yeah.  I just checked same 5 day Bermuda itinerary on Adventure for similar date in 2020 and it's about $800 more.  Not sure if like you say, it started out similar and has gone up from there.

Before last yr new Sailings weren't released until March-June, we are lucky that it is earlier then past. Issue is further out they go, possible canceled/chartered or where ship goes might change

Hi Nancy, This is Jan from the recent Brilliance TA.  I too keep looking for the 2021  Iceland/Greenland TA to show up.  Have seen nothing yet.  Please send me an email when it opens, in case I miss it.  janmrucker at gmail dot com.  Thanks much.

 

I am also watching for a Snowbird Migration 2021 cruise from Canada to Florida.  I see one now offered but it disembarks in Puerto Rico.

That's only China phase (whatever that consists of). There's still SEA and Oceania itineraries to come.

Hi, Jan. Based on what I've read so far on this thread - I am not expecting there to be  an Iceland/Greenland Transatlantic in fall 2021.  However, if I am pleasantly surprised by that itinerary appearing next week - I'll surely email you!

They're going to be short on time to fill Jewel for winter 2020-21.  I'm really curious about what they're going to do.

I may have missed it, but does anyone know where Brilliance is going to be from April 2021 to September 2021?  

Not confirmed yet, but the most likely is continued short 4 and 5 night sailings from Tampa. 

 

She has calls booked at Grand Cayman throughout that summer season.

Curious myself, hoping.. We forget until couple yrs ago dates were released little as 1yr out, or less for earliest dates. Though almost every yr one ship is redeployed at least part of schedule after dates released. Further out they schedule, more likely this keeps happening...

Wow...that's unusual.  Tampa usually does not have Royal ships sailing from that port in the summer.  Would be nice to think they might choose to add those on now.  🙂
