  1. They are already loaded on the site, I was able to check prices for the Greek Isles cruises yesterday.
  2. Both could come to NY honestly, next year Legend, Sunrise, Radiance and Mardi Gras have sailings. Fascination while smaller is different so I’d still try it. NY is the last thing to basically announce.
  3. Almost all the ships have been announced for 2021 now, expect for Magic, Sunrise and Fascination, hoping we get the Magic.

  5. Per Cruise Industry News: Carnival Cruise Line has turned to turn-key outfitter ALMACO once again, this time to deliver 30 new staterooms for the Carnival Elation for an upcoming refit at the Grand Bahama Shipyard in March 2020, according to a statement. ALMACO had previously worked with both Carnival and Grand Bahama Shipyard on the Elation during a 2017 drydock, part of the line’s Fun Ship 2.0 ship enhancement program. "Our scope of work involves the full turnkey outfitting of 30 new staterooms on Deck 9,"...... https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/21903-almaco-to-deliver-30-new-staterooms-for-carnival-elation.html 30 new staterooms is a lot to stuff into one deck which currently has no cabins, I do wonder what will be removed. Paradise's next dry dock per a site seems like its slated for the same thing.
  6. I did, so the USA cruises won’t in fact be opened to Americans.
  7. When does MSC typically post new itineraries?
  8. According to port schedules, MSC Meraviglia will be in the area and arriving at the end of the year will be the new MSC Seashore which replaces the MSC Seaside.
  9. Per MSC’s Twitter, the name of MSC World Class I is MSC Europa.
  10. Love the review, can't wait try the Seaside in December.
  11. I'm hoping they switch it up, they are upgrading the pier in Manhattan so was hoping for a Dream Class, but I'd happily settle for the Freedom.
  12. Per Cruise Industry News: https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/21725-carnival-to-base-four-ships-in-galveston-year-round.html Carnival Cruise Line announced today that it will have four ships homeported in Galveston, year-round, beginning in 2021. The Carnival Radiance will join the Galveston-based fleet in May 2021. In addition, the Carnival Breeze will return to Galveston from Port Canaveral, becoming the newest and largest ship to operate a short cruise program from Galveston. The Carnival Dream will shift to six- and eight-day Caribbean voyages while the Carnival Vista will continue to sail its week-long Caribbean cruises. All Galveston-based ships and itineraries opened for sale today. With these four ships, Carnival Cruise Line will carry an estimated 900,000 guests annually from Galveston – more than any other cruise operator – on 235 five- to 14-day sailings a year, the company said. “Carnival is already the most popular cruise line from Galveston attracting vacationers from all across the Southwest and beyond. With these enhancements, we’re providing our guests with more voyages, more destinations and more choices from Texas than ever before,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. The Carnival Radiance will launch a new schedule of five- to 14-day voyages from the Port of Galveston beginning on May 14, 2021. Five-day cruises will depart Sundays and feature the Mexican ports of Cozumel and Progreso or Costa Maya. Three different nine-day options departing Fridays will be offered – one calling at Cozumel, Limon (Costa Rica), and a partial Panama Canal transit or a visit to Colon (Panama), another featuring Key West, Grand Turk, the private Bahamian island of Half Moon Cay and Nassau, and a third stopping at Grand Cayman, Mahogany Bay (Isla Roatan), Belize, Costa Maya and Cozumel. Two eight-port, 14-day Carnival Journeys cruises visiting top destinations throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America and the Panama Canal will also be offered departing Oct. 24, 2021 and Jan. 16, 2022. The Carnival Radiance will reposition to the Port of Galveston with a 12-day Carnival Journeys Panama Cruise departing Port Canaveral May 2 and arriving in Galveston May 14, 2021. The Carnival Breeze will operate a short cruise itinerary from Galveston when it kicks off year-round four- and five-day cruises from that port May 5, 2021. The program includes four-day long “weekend cruises” departing Thursdays and featuring a day-long visit to Cozumel. Five-day voyages departing Mondays and Saturdays will feature stops at Cozumel and either Progreso or Costa Maya. The Carnival Dream will shift to a new six- and eight-day cruise schedule from Galveston beginning May 8, 2021. Six-day cruises visit Costa Maya, Cozumel and Belize or Mahogany Bay. Eight-day cruises will feature Key West, Freeport, Half Moon Cay and Nassau. The Carnival Vista will also continue its week-long cruise program from Galveston with two different three-port, seven-day western Caribbean options. The Carnival Freedom, which currently operates this itinerary, will be deployed to another homeport to be announced shortly, according to Carnival.
  13. Problem with replacing the Fantasy Class, is that they are just pure profit for Carnival, replace them with new versions, overall cost of cruising goes up, maybe only keep 4 and replace 4; that and as previously stated only certain ports can handle this size and since Carnival doesn't really venture outside of North America with a few exceptions, its not in their best interests to leave those ports. For New York, I'd settle for a Dream Class or even a Vista; have yet to try the Fantasy/Spirit/Conquest Class to give an opinion.
