Anthem is on her way to Suez. What other class of RCI ships have had all ships transit the Canal?

Possibly only brilliance class? 
 

EDIT: Not even sure they have 😂

Brilliance is part of Radiance class. We transited Suez Canal in Nov '19 on Jewel....also part of Radiance class ships

Sorry that’s what I meant, don’t know what I was thinking 😂 Are there any ships in the radiance class that haven’t been through the canal?

They haven't so far. Also no Feedome Class Ship. Once Wonder will be delivered, she wil be the first Oasis Class ship going through the canal.

The key word Biker had on his question was "all". So as Jack also noted Adventure and Navigator have not sailed in that region or transited the Suez Canal.

Seeing Wonder go through the canal would be an interesting sight.

Article about Belizean crew members arriving in Belize on RCI ship (doesn't say which one):

 

Belize’s borders remain closed but on Saturday, a first group of Belizeans to be allowed to re-enter Belize due to the COVID-19 pandemic arrived on a Royal Caribbean ship. Belize remains COVID free for forty-five days, so protocols are in place to prevent any imported case by sea, air and land. The group of nationals was on the vessel for more than seventy days and Saturday was the first time they set foot on land. They were immediately placed on quarantine and will remain that way for fourteen days.  News Five’s Isani Cayetano reports.

Many crew have to quarantine when they arrive in their home country.....and at their own expense. We're in contact with an Asst. Waiter from Kenya. She has been onboard since the start of this. She is on Freedom waiting...and waiting...and waiting and hoping to fly home on a charter by Thursday. Then she'll go into quarantine at $80 day x 14 days = $1440. This has got to be hard for crew to afford. Especially when many aren't being paid waiting to go home.

will he ever work on a ship again?

They have been told no social media, so I will be vague. He is not new to working on ships.

Jewel has arrived in Southampton.

Any idea where Jewel going from Southampton? We are booked on September 5 sailing and being pushed to make final payment to TA. Do not wish to go but have already paid flights to Spain. What is our best option? We have already had the dreaded Covid. Not nice.

Presumably sticking around the local area for now, as it looks majesty will be doing. Currently it says she will be going to “unknown coastal” which is what Allure was showing when she was just sitting around of the south/west coast of England and popping back into Southampton every week or so

To hot or cold layup at this stage and then it will depend on when cruising will start again and if Jewel will be amongst the vessels to be deployed from the begining.

Are the crew from the UK/Europe able to fly home from ships in Asia, such as Quantum/Ovation/Voyager or are they stuck currently?
