Hi all!

 

I was reading Royal Caribbean Blog the other day and a post came up about Glacier Bay. It was announced that RCI has been given permission in the 2019-2029 Alaska seasons that ships will be allowed into Glacier Bay. My question is, do we think they will alter current itineraries to travel to Glacier Bay instead of what current sailings are doing? I'm interested to see anyone's speculations on the topic! 

Great news for us West Costers! I will look at their itineraries!

This is what I am seeing for northbound Radiance in August 7, 2020.  Hubbard Glacier is not Glacier Bay, correct?

CRUISE ITINERARY

There are a few changes to this sail date's itinerary. We hope you're as excited as we are about this in your updated vacation plan.

  • Day 1 (Departure) Vancouver, British Columbia (Set Sail)
  • Day 2 Inside Passage (Cruising), Canada
  • Day 3 Ketchikan, Alaska
  • Day 4 Icy Strait Point, Alaska
  • Day 5 Juneau, Alaska
  • Day 6 Skagway, Alaska
  • Day 7 Hubbard Glacier (Cruising), Alaska
  • Return Seward, Alaska (Return)Y

 

Hubbard Glacier is a stunning glacier. We visited it on our Radiance cruise in 2016. It is not in Glacier Bay, however. You are correct.

Keep in mind that not all the itineraries have been updated yet. 🙂  Our sailing In May on Ovation, still shows Dawes Glacier, even though those of us booked have already had our cruise planner updated to GB.  I think most of the Radiance cruises have been updated, though.

And RCI sent out a corrected email today as well, fixing the ‘extra day’ on the original one.

Nice to see that fixed, especially if you are on the next cruise.  Wouldn't want to see an itinerary shortened.

I know that Glacier Bay is confirmed for departures May 22, August 28 and Sep 4. However, after checking schedules for HAL vessels and under consideration of the two ship maximum per day I assume these are all upcoming changes for Ovation in 2020. She will only go to Glacier in the shoulder season in May and September but not in the high season from June to August. In those months Eurodam and eather Westerdam or Noordam are in Glacier Bay on Tuesdays.

I'm thinking the same thing too.  Schedules will perhaps change more in 2021, but unless something gives, there just isn't space for additional sailings.  I'm thankful to be on the May 22 cruise.  We didn't plan for GB, but are thrilled that we are scheduled. 

 

I've been watching social media.  Haven't seen any other confirmations of sailings for Ovation.
