  1. Would love to see Spectrum in Europe, although it’s unlikely, sadly... Same with Voyager, although I’d like to see her as the 2nd ship sailing from Southampton. Seems Quantum otS sails Hawaii/Australia after her Alaska season...
  2. Which ships are still missing for the summer period right now? Only Voyager otS, I think? All the other ships seem to be deployed, so there's hardly any chance to have an additional ship from Soutahmtpon in 2021...
  3. The new deployment schedule is out, with very vague information on the "remaining deployment"... http://www.creative.rccl.com/Sales/Royal/Deployment/2021_2022/19069859_Deployment_Opening_Schedule_20212022_Phase2
  4. Interesting what the future cruise consultant thinks - currently I couldn't imagine any ship, because all of them in 2021 are already allocated. Maybe there's still a tin chance to see Adventure on such an itinerary in fall 2021, but actually I'd expect her in dry dock during that period. IMHO the only chance for that is a second ship from Southampton in 2021, which could do such an itinerary after her Europe season in early fall. But it still seems to be unclear, if there will be a second ship from Southampton or not in 2021...
  5. TOTALLY AGREE!! Radiance-Class is a really flexible class of ships, best suitable for cruises to Northern Europe or Alaska with port-intensive itineraries or more advanced itineraries as such. IMHO it's a huge waste to do such uninspiring short-cruises with such as ship. IMHO Adventure's Europe deployment in 2021 prooves that Radiance-Class is far better for such Northern Europe cruises: Adventure does not do any Norwegian Fjord cruises, the Arctic Circle cruise is not offered in 2021, which has been offered since 2012 every year, at least once from Copenhagen. She's just doing Baltic cruises, with two useless sea-days between Copenhagen and Tallinn, and the 7-night runs just call at three ports... I really miss her in Europe already... I'd also rather like to see the old Majesty doing such short-cruises from Tampa, or Enchantment, another Vision-Class ship, or Empress. Enchantment to Tampa, Brilliance taking over the Baltimore cruises - why not? 🙄
  6. Sadly I won’t be sure about that at all... it’s not clear if another ship comes to Southampton in 2021, and otherwise the only possible candidate for that route would have been Adventure, and obviously she doesn’t do such an itinerary. If you’re interested in such a cruise, have a look at NCL, Princess in 2021.
  7. You could still choose “Ryndam” but you’re directed to the general cruise overview than... Obviously the website is buggy...
  8. A very “cold” website has the new itineraries already. Sailings from Amsterdam, as mentioned before, very similar to the ones that Nieuw Statendam offers in 2020. No North Cape 😞 but two Cruises to Iceland. 🙂
  9. Okay, thank you very much so far! Does she also do cruises including North Cape (port of Honningsvåg)? I really hope to have the cruises on the HAL website very soon... Theres obviously no possibility to access POLAR as a “common” person?
  10. Thank you, great!! Where did you get the itinerary? It should be well likely now that the other itineraries will be released tomorrow. Does your PCC also have other itineraries?
  11. Let’s hope for Monday. I mean, those information by insiders should have a certain reliablity, they just don’t tell us anything about the itineraries being released in friday. So let’s hope for next week...
  12. Still nothing, sadly, however here in Germany it’s evening already, but in Seattle it’s something around in the morning, so it still could happen today that the itineraries get released...
  13. Any confirmation on Quantum sailing from Seattle yet? Are the itineraries already to see somewhere?
  14. It was August 08-15, not 3rd of August, one week Norway from Amsterdam. nevertheless, we know she’ll be sailing from Amsterdam.
  15. In another thread, a user was told by his PCC that the sailings for Ryndam will come out Friday, and the inaugural voyage next Wednesday.
  16. Now Ryndam is taken away from the website again...
  17. She's only listed in Gibraltar (Med port) the 25th of May 2021 (for sure her repo from Med to Northern Europe), and depending on the port schedules for 2021, she should be in Northern Europe until Oct 10, 2021 at least, returning from a 14 night Baltic cruise from/to Amsterdam. IMHO she's likely to sail her first inaugural TA from Amsterdam, although I cannot say for sure. Let's hope we know more in a few days or weeks!
  18. True, it's August 08-15, 2021, 7 night Norwegian Fjords from Amsterdam - same type of cruises which Nieuw Statendam offers in 2020, and partially in 2021.
  19. -Brilliance sadly seems to stay in Caribbean until July or so... 😞 I dislike since she's a very flexible, attractively sized ship, so she should better do cruises to Alaska, Northern Europe... -Spectrum, QUantum, Voyager for sure will sail Asia during our summer period (e. g. July), as well as Australia later on. -Indy, Navigator and Mariner - I am sure they'll stay in Florida for shorter or week-long Caribbean cruises -Explorer is a question mark kinda... Obviously no Europe, maybe she could do the longer cruises between Bayonne and Québec City, as Vision does in 2020. Otherwise, I have no idea...
  20. You mean once she has left RCI and sails for Pullmantur?
  21. Meanwhile any news regarding Explorer otS? Obviously she’s not coming to Europe in 2021...
  22. Before Explorer's Europe itineraries for 2021 aren't loaded, I don't believe in an Eruope deployment for her, but let's see, maybe the itineraries will be uploaded these days... Otherwise, if it's all for Europe, I am a little disappointed about Northern Europe, since there's no Arctic Circle cruise, and no Norway cruises from Copenhagen, as Serenade or Jewel were doing the previous Europe seasons...
  23. A little disappointed by Adventures sailings: no Norway, just the standard Baltic sailings, not the same as in 2020. 😞 Let’s see if anything for Explorer will be added, but I wouldn’t be wondered if her deployment for Europe in 2021 wasn’t true...
  24. Okay, who told you that about the 2nd ship for Southampton? Would be surprising, but really nice to have a second ship in Southampton since in 2020 there's just one... I'd think one of the two ships you mentioned will definitely stay in the Caribbean year-round.
