One or two more cdc no sail orders and I see Majesty and Empress Turkey bound.

So sad. 

I have cancelled this cruise.  The uncertainly (or certainty that it will not happen) has won out.  That combined with the total redeploy of the Australian season has made it all too hard.

Good luck all.  I hope it happens for your sakes.

I take your rolling eyes to mean no, she isn't coming back.  

 

No one knows if she isn't.

However,  every single shred of logic points to her heading to Aliaga or equivalent, yes ... in my humble non-scientific and ignorant opinion.

It makes sense.  What I don't get is why she is putzing around Europe.  Isn't that an unnecessary expense if the plan is to have her scrapped?

RCG investors call today - no mention of additional scrapings.

 

I think certain ships could have a future in sister brands, even one that might be re-organized depending how the next six months work out.  There is more than just one ship breaking yard but I think they are waiting to see how the future plays out before making that decision.

Malta to Crete is about 550 nautical miles... as a perspective it's only about 200 between Port Everglades to Port Canaveral.

Guess what country Empress is registered? Yes, Malta. So they have much more freedom with regard to movement of equipment, supplies, staff, etc in Malta ( I think, and from what I've read here on CC and elsewhere on line)

She was registered in Malta when she went to Pullmantur the first time.  When she came back to Royal they flagged her in the Bahamas. Been that way since 2016.

Thx twangster... now I remember.

There was already a post on her registry in this thread I think on an earlier page I forgot about.
