Given the usual late fall delivery, don't see how it could have a European season next year.

Possibly a few preview sailings followed by a TA then winter in Florida and back to BCN for the summer.  If what a Bayley said for her itineraries is true.

This is the one Bayley says was coming to visit England isn’t it?

I’m picturing a fleeting visit, perhaps a repo round to Barcelona and then a TA..... 

If she stays in England too long then she will be in direct competition with Anthem which I don’t think they will do.

but what do I know!

Sorry, no.  I submitted the name Odyssey of the Seas back in 2008 when they held a contest to name the ships that became Oasis and Allure.

With all of the attention Miami is getting from Royal right now, that port would be my guess 😃

 

I was thinking may be FLL or PC since they both have a Saturday slot. There is definitely a lot of competition picking up in the Florida ports.

I wondered where this thread had disappeared to!  Following and hope there is a sailing out of Southampton.  Also hope they announce the itineraries soon as I don't know how long I can hold off booking the Anthem for October 2020!

I’m already booked on the Anthem TA in 2020 but will definitely jump ship for Odyssey!!

This ship is unlikely to come out before the end of October. We might get some itineraries when the 20-21 ones come out late next month.

 

Biker, who foresees a non-rev repo right after she is finished.

I'm on Anthem as well, I thought they would put Odyssey in NY and Anthem somewhere else. Have to see prices before I switch

Oasis will be coming to Bayonne to appease the big boat cruisers...so perhaps Odyssey will end up in a better place.

Maybe we might get a ship in Edinburgh.

Dreaming again.

Anthem already has her fall 2020 to Spring 2021 itineraries from Bayonne Published -  a mix of 7 to 12 night Caribbean and Bahamas.  Same with Allure and Symphony from Miami, Oasis from Ft Lauderdale and Harmony from Port Canaveral - all on alternating 7nt Eastern and western Itineraries.  My guess is Odyssey either does 9 & 12 night or 10 & 11 night Caribbean sailings from Ft Lauderdale, or replaces Anthem from Bayonne and Anthem moves south to do 9 &12 night or 10&11 night patterns.  I cannot see them putting this ship on 7 night sailings from Florida - with 4 Oasis Class ships to fill they do not need a 5th 7 night ship that could suppress yields in this market segment.

I think the 6/8 night itineraries would be more likely. Grand Cayman port schedules would seem to indicate that as well.

I was lucky enough to catch Ovation on a repo from Southampton to Barca on her way to China, balcony cabin, flights & hotel stay for £800pp.... doubt that will ever happen again :)
