I wish Royal would decide if we can sail July

Many people are talking about the CDC, but I wouldn't think that they have any control over cruises from other countries.  I didn't see where the OP indicated what country they are sailing from.

True.  I assumed the OP was in the USA...but maybe not.

I believe it's CLIA (Cruise Line International Association) that issued the no sail order.

The CDC did - CLIA may have tried to influence the language.

Someone posted on the Celebrity board that an announcement is coming tomorrow. Not surprising if there is an earnings call and a TA webinar. Rumor is cancellation date is pushed to 7/31, now that all those sailings ( and the first two weeks of August) have passed final payment dates.

Although the CDC only has US jurisdiction, it has global influence and direct input on US travelers abroad. These things combined are enough to stop ships globally until the ban is lifted.

A letter to crew members from Carnival's President was leaked and posted on that legal eagle's site that many of you dislike.  It states that Carnival has paused operations until the end of August and it is uncertain that they will sail on August 1st.  So if Carnival isn't sailing until the end of August, it is very doubtful that Royal or NCL will.

On Celebrity board, person just posted that her TA told her that X will announce tomorrow that they will cancel all cruises thru July. We have a July 3 cruise on Royal  and an X cruise in August so it is about time they cancel. Cannot wait to hear.

Really?  No cruise line anywhere in the world can cruise until the CDC approves it? 😏

I noticed that the earnings call is tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10:00. I am hoping that call brings a lot of information.

Tomorrow is the weekly phone call for travel agents with Vicki Freed, RC SVP.  Special guest is Richard Fain, CEO.

 

Stay tuned.

We’re talking US firms here, or firms that primarily do business with Americans. 😉 Next question.

I posted a link to this and that's not exactly what was said.

 

8 ships out of 3 ports are supposed to sail august 1st, then the rest. She did say august is uncertain. If they dont sail august 1st I expect the trial balloon will be pushed back a month while they get the crew back for the rest.

 

Just to be clear Galveston and miami and port Canaveral are still not cancelled for august 1st. Just 8 ships. ..at obviously reduced capacity. All the sudden they will shut down bookings for a date the ship obviously isnt full.  I was looking at partial panama rcl doesnt do, bam, closed bookings.

 

Everyone is anxious for those first reviews. See what reduced capacity means.

I wish they would make a decision on the Med sailings for this year.  Other lines have already cancelled them so only a matter of time before Royal follows.  With my final payment due mid-July I'd love for them to decide before then.

I didn't see the link you posted -- are you sure we're talking about the same letter?  The letter I saw was to the crew and didn't mention the 8 ships out of 3 ports.  It did say that they paused operations until the end of August.

I feel bad for the late June cruisers getting strung along. I'm lining up alternative plans for late July and thus have cash tied up in two different vacations for the same week.

We have an 7 day Empress cruise July 6 to New England and Canada. Can I lift and switch to an 8 day Bermuda cruise on the Empress July 2021?

Itineraries must be the same length and type.  Yours meet neither requirement.

Is the call in info available anywhere for this call?  I'm asking for a friend.
