Dani, look on the top right line of the website.  You will see it says Israel and has two Israeli telephone numbers to call

 

Thanks, I've seen the Israeli flag, but it stands to reason that the cruises from Haifa will appear immediately, without much "manipulations" from my side 😉

 

Did u book?

If I may suggest, the ones which include Santorini are worthwhile 🌺

And the good thing is there won't be many other cruise ships in port. Last time I was in Santorini there were five big cruise ships at the same time. You could hardly move in those narrow streets

I can’t wait to see people posting YouTube videos onboard!  We are sailing Feb 6, and would love to see real ship tours 🙂

 

I was thinking the exact same thing!! I had my doubts that the Rome season would happen, so I was resigned to the possibility of having to wait until the fall to see what she's really like. Hopefully some pictures and videos will begin to surface this summer. 🤗

I would call back  the $100 OBC offer should apply to lifted and shifted bookings

TA called RCI yesterday and confirmed the $100 OBC will be updated in 10 days. Let's see.......

That's a brilliant record. May I know if there is any source on this news that I can read?

It was mentioned by Vicki Freed SVP Sales and Trade Support on this weeks webinar for TA’s.

"First hand" source -- the Israeli travel agents are swamped with hundreds of calls for booking.

 

People are registering with several agencies, and they'll book with whoever replies first....

 

Those who managed to book are proudly displaying their "results", much like wining a lottery 😁

 

As of now, those cruises are the only "game" in town.

I feel happy for you and all the Israeli cruisers. Hope there will be more ships from other cruise lines to use Haifa as homeport in the future. Then you can have more choices without flying to other countries for embarkation.

Thank you so much, appreciate it. It will indeed be marvelous.

 

Fingers crossed this "experiment" will succeed among this pandemic....

It can only be booked by Israeli travel agents.

 

Technically, unless your Miami TA is licensed by Royal to sell to citizens of countries other than Canada or the US they shouldn't be selling to you.  Many travel agents will break the rules hoping they don't get caught.  

 

TA's need a separate operating license for every country they wish to do business in.


Sorry, off the topic - Ken would you be licensed for Australia?

Unfortunately not.  It is rare fir a TA to be licensed in more than one country.  The US And Canada count as one region.

The 1st sailing from Israel is June 2nd (actually, a 3 day cruise to nowhere.... embarkation, one sea day, debarkation 😁).

 

There were no sailings for sale before this date.

I wonder what happened to the May cruises?

This is actually selling well? You move into your cabin and the next night you pack to get off the ship the next morning. I wouldn't do that even if I could.
