  1. The Deployment Flyer for Opening Dates for the 21/22 season has gone from the Royal Caribbean website. Can anyone find it.
  2. I am seeing the booking here on this Southampton Parking site. It has helped me in the past with getting a few predictions right. 8 April 2020. My guess should read for Anthem or Spectrum. Not Ovation she is on Alaska. https://www.abparking.co.uk/
  3. Royal Caribbean have a 16 night cruise port booking from Southampton 8 April 2020 under the name “Anthem Of the Seas”. This is while Anthem is coming across the pond. Sounds like Spectrum or Ovation. But no port booking 16 nights later. Maybe a Trans Atlantic?
  4. During Winter. They appear to be just day visits. https://www.portbris.com.au/Operations-and-Trade/Shipping-Schedule/ Not turn arounds.
  5. Port of Brisbane now has Sapphire Princess bookings. They did not yesterday.
  6. Thanks My guessing now has Wonder Of The Seas in Bayonne for Christmas 2021. This ship with year round deployment from Shanghai would be designed for cold conditions.
  7. While checking a few port bookings around Australia I noticed that Princess appear to be sending Sapphire Princess to Australia instead of Asia. Looks like home ports of Fremantle in July and Sydney in August and September as home ports. Has a few days booked at Cairns and Eden also. Corona Virus Redeployment I assume.
  8. For the current Corona Virus situation Spectrum of the Seas is apparently due in Manila 12 February. From here I suspect she will head towards Singapore then head to Europe with no passengers. I think while Royal has a chance to get Spectrum/Quantum out of Asia they will. Australia I think is too close to Asia. Voyager will stay in Australia for the OZ Winter or go to West Coast USA for the USA Summer. Quantum/Spectrum will work the Voyager cruises in May from Singapore. My Predictions.
  9. Just read on social media Taiwan has banned cruise ships with Chinese crew on board. If true I assume this would include Spectrum.
  10. I am going for Adventure of the Seas for Sydney. I realise no port bookings to support this guess. Royal/Celebrity have too many port bookings in Darwin/ Fremantle from Asia. Cairns doesn’t list Serenade also for late 2021. Serenade For Melbourne maybe. With the virus going on will Wonder still go to China is another thing to consider.
  11. That Voyager Port Bookings Singapore to Los Angeles you can now add Cairns 5 June 2021. Darwin 1 June Cairns (Yorkeys Knob) 5 June Airlie Beach 6 June? Brisbane 8 June Sydney 10 June Honolulu - Oahu 21 - 22 June Lahaina - Maui 23 June
  12. The Hawaii to Los Angeles cruise starts in Sydney 10 June. It appears to be done in one go. You will have to come and visit us in Oz to go on that cruise.
  13. With these Voyager sailings from Los Angeles what I suspect what has happened is Miami has hit the roof after the Blog ran article showing the port bookings and has asked the port to remove them from the website. When other port bookings for Voyager in Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin and Hawaii start disappearing we will know something is going on.
  14. Do you know if the Chinese Crew on Spectrum requires visa for Oz? But no one knows how this will all turn out. I can't see 3 ships in China for the Northern Summer 2020. Surely one will end up in Australia. Another could go somewhere in Europe.
  15. Citing urgent guidelines from the Chinese goverment to combat the spread of the coronavirus, Costa Crociere, Royal Caribbean and Genting Cruise Lines have immediately suspended cruise operations in mainland China. Costa has cancelled sailings on the Serena for Jan. 25 and 31; the Atlantica on Jan. 27 and 31; the Venezia on Jan 26. and Feb. 2 and the neoRomantica on Jan. 25, 30 and Feb. 2. Costa, in a prepared statement, said guests are eligible for a full refund; or can choose an alternative sailing date before the end of the year along with a $50 onboard credit. Travel agencies have been instructed to stop group tours, which make up most of the Chinese cruise industry, according to local reports. Genting's Dream Cruises brand has cancelled a turnaround call in Guangzhou for the World Dream, but will continue to operate from Hong Kong, according to a statement as the 2017-built ship interports between both homeports. Other operators with a presence in China during the winter include Astro Ocean and MSC, which have yet to issue any statements, but could follow suit during the high-yielding weeks of Chinese New Year. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/22321-multiple-cruise-lines-suspend-chinese-sailings.html?fbclid=IwAR3CeblZiLATPOavndExdrzn2lmPrYot5NPReFLs-ZIiqzn9M2CCkcnqVJw
