Adventure from Copenhagen and Stockholm and Odyssey from Rome cruises are all published on the European websites. No Norway or Iceland cruises on Adventure, just Baltic.

 

Odyssey sailings for Europe are now showing on US site.

Observed both longer TA on Adventure(and other Voyager Class) without requirement, and shorter 6niters with. And reverse. Same on Vision Class Cabins, also with less 3/4 pass. Hard to tell...

Agree, there doesn't seem to be much rhyme nor reason.  In the past, it has been possible to book those desired cabins sometime after the cruise is opened, anywhere from a week to ...?  But of course, by then, most of them have been reserved. A T/A can sometimes be helpful.

Summary of all cruises:

 

....

 

So what I noticed about Odyssey:

- A lot of overnights in Athens and Napoli.

- Late stays in Santorini and Mykonos (10 PM or later).

- Three cruises to Israel, one in May and two in September, but no overnights in Israel. Usually the last cruises of the year were to Israel, but Odyssey continues some Greek cruises in October.

 

About Adventure:

- Unfortunately, no "special" destinations, just the standard baltics tours.

- Last Adventure cruise is 22 August so far – more to come?

A little disappointed by Adventures sailings: no Norway, just the standard Baltic sailings, not the same as in 2020. 😞 

Let’s see if anything for Explorer will be added, but I wouldn’t be wondered if her deployment for Europe in 2021 wasn’t true...

It is assumed that Adventure will head to Cadiz, Spain for revitalization prior to returning to the Caribbean / Galveston for the winter season.

 

No evidence yet of a re-positioning or mini-MED season, but there is a call at St. Maarten on November the 7th when it appears the ship returns to the Caribbean.

We are a little disappointed too. Hoped for some Norway or Iceland trips.

 

However, Anthem does a lot more Norway than expected (overnights in Geiranger and Stavanger for example). Maybe she is the replacement for that...

 

On the other hand, I kind of cannot believe there will be no Arctic Cycle cruise anymore. :-p

Thank you so much for this summary.  I have been waiting to book a Baltic cruise until these came out.  I did not get them to come up on the US site.  . . . but, I think I will go with the Jewel cruise on July 27th from Amsterdam.  Your posting was a big help.

Anthem visits Norway five times in 2021 from Southampton. And Jewel goes to Norway and Icelands two more times from Amsterdam. I guess that might be it for Europe.

 

And this might be the cruise that "replaces" the arctic cycle cruises:

 

Ultimate Norwegian Fjords Cruise

9 Nights –  11 June

Southampton, England

Bergen, Norwegen

Geiranger, Norwegen

Stavanger, Norwegen

Oslo, Norwegen

Kristiansand, Norwegen

 

One of the Iceland cruises of Jewel is on the 9 June, so also very similar to the usual arctic cycle cruise date.

They haven’t loaded ANYTHING for Explorer yet. At this point, I just wanna know where they’re sending her, period.

Same for Independence. Explorer apparently going to Copenhagen, although could be Miami. Independence supposedly  staying in Caribbean

eek, the Odyssey 9 nighter is $1,500 more than I was expecting. Love the idea of an overnight in Naples though.  We might just do the 7 night & go to Florence for 2 days post cruise.  Decisions, decisions.......

Hi guys ... so I'm seeing a TA on Odyssey leaving PE on 17 April 2021.

 

Where is she expected to go after her season in Europe ... can I expect a TA back to PE later in 2021?

 

Thanks.

Before Explorer's Europe itineraries for 2021 aren't loaded, I don't believe in an Eruope deployment for her, but let's see, maybe the itineraries will be uploaded these days...

Otherwise, if it's all for Europe, I am a little disappointed about Northern Europe, since there's no Arctic Circle cruise, and no Norway cruises from Copenhagen, as Serenade or Jewel were doing the previous Europe seasons...

I just noticed that Odyssey is missing the Aug 29th sailing. Looks like after the Aug. 22nd the next cruise is Sept. 7th so is there a missing 10 day cruise?

Good catch, I just verified with my data and it's indeed missing.

 

It will probably similar to the cruise on 1 October (Rome-Athens-Mykonos-Santorini-Naples-Rome).

No problem, mate. We decided on Jewel as well, but on the June 9 (Norway–Iceland). We will probably keep that one unless Explorer or Indy surprises us with a hell of Norway or Iceland cruise.

I just scored nice price for solo on ocean balcony for July 18th 2021 for a 7 day.  $2447 inc tax for a balcony for one person.

These rooms always GO FAST. 

So book them this week for summer of 2021.  Best deal as the interiors are over 3k.  just saying act NOW.

I done an overnight on Celebrity. It was great

Naples can justify an overnight as there is loads to see

Napoli is great. You can go to islands (like Capri), have a local cruise around the Amalfi coast (Amalfi, Sorrento and more), go to the old sights (Pompeii or Ercolano), to cities (Napoli, Salerno or even Rome – 1hr by train), or just go to the beaches.

 

Similar things can be said about Athens, although I personally do not like the city (very hot in summer, ugly flat buildings, and very messy). Of course all the ancient sights are amazing.

Cheap af compared to other cruises currently offered. But a limited port selection, probably that's why.
