Deployment 2021-22 booking season begins

Just checking the 2022/23 port schedule for Melbourne and it is also showing Celebrity Eclipse as a regular turn around visitor.

 

Also on a side note, Sydney Ports before been taken down was showing a RCCL ship as a regular visitor past the normal April cruise season (it was to early June) any guess if this will still occur. 

Yes, that ship entered Australia on Oct 25, 2021, then called at Adelaide and Hobart before arriving in Sydney on Nov 2, 2021.  No call in Melbourne at the time, suggesting that it's a Quantum class ship.  There were various entries in Sydney with the last being on June 8, 2022. It then called at Brisbane on June 10, 2022 and Darwin on June 16, 2022.  I'll have to check if those calls are still in the port calendars.

All these calls are still in the calendars, in the name "Ovation of the Seas".   

I don't think we can expect a third Quantum class ship in Sydney, so I guess this plan is obsolete.  Perhaps this came about when they decided to deploy Quantum of the Seas to Alaska. 

Can't check Sydney port calendar of course.

A bit of a thought.
A new requirement will be have hand wash stations for all ships.

The older ships will have to be refitted before they can come to Australia.

That could be completed on the way to Australia, as there is little chance ships would be allowed to bring passengers from other ports to Australia (or New Zealand).

There's a 99% chance that is already planned.

Hi. Do you know if this will include Asia / Singapore schedules. I'm trying to get some indication of when the Q4 2021 itineraries will be published. Thx.

An Ovation cruise from Sydney in Oct 2021 popped up on the web site yesterday.  No cruises showing how Ovation would get from Alaska to Australia.  It's gone today.

Spectrum's itinerary for Beijing/Shanghai/HK for 2021 till Oct is up. Nothing on Singapore yet. I'm interested to see what's going to happen now that Quantum is leaving for Oz.

Liberty of the Seas has been booked at Gran Cayman on either 7 or 14 night intervals through April of 2022 for the sailings out of Galveston. 

 

The Allure sailings that have been cancelled did not include Gran Cayman due to the delay of the dock at Gran Cayman. Liberty will be able to continue to call on popular Gran Cayman out of Galveston.

Just posted on a blog that Allure is going to Port Everglades instead of Galveston.

 

"

Royal Caribbean Senior Vice President of Sales and Trade Support & Service Vicki Freed confirmed that Allure of the Seas will instead sail from Port Everglades.

I'm sure you're likely wondering, "Now that the Allure of the Seas is not going to Galveston, where will she be going, Vicki?" Well, we're aren't really sure of her exact itineraries just yet, but it's been confirmed that she will sail from Fort Lauderdale in the winter of 2021 and 2022."

With Liberty remaining in Galveston, that leaves Miami without a ship to do the 3/4 night Bahamas cruises. I wonder what ship will end up doing them.

I think Navigator will stick around in Miami and Allure will take her place in FLL, albeit probably on 7 nighters.

Here is the brochure for the 2021-22 Australian deployment - nothing has dropped on the site as yet and brochure/deployment is not on Loyal to You site yet either.

https://www.royalcaribbean.com/content/dam/royal/international/pdf/RCI_21-22_mini_ebrochure_australia.pdf

 

Interestingly, whilst it confirms Quantum and Ovation are coming down under, the only North/South TP listed is for Radiance.  Any ideas?

Hmmmm.  I’m wondering if a 2020 South Pacific from the east cost of Oz can be lifted and shifted to a New Zealand cruise.  The brochure does not appear to offer any cruises with the South Pacific islands (unless you count ANZ as islands).  
 

 

never mind, just needed to scroll down further.

Quantum Class does not have enough space for food storage from Sydney to Hawaii without topping up in Tahiti. Tahiti and Hawaii may still not be available. Royal only has to deal with one cancelled ship with selling Radiance. 

Plus it will probably be Royal's first cruise in Australia since the Covid shutdown. By running with no passengers certainly takes a lot of pressure off them dealing with the Australian Government.

Good point, but they may not be running at full capacity so food storage might not be an issue.

I’ve done a little research on L&S . I think It’s for cruises released before May 6

Oh, really, I’ll have a look.  I thought I might book a cheap one on radiance in 2020 and shift it to ovation in 2021.  Back to the fine print I go.

That’s what I thought.

He did say to try.

 I’ll check the new season and ask my agent.
