I keep seeing people talking about ships being "amped". What does that mean?

 

In case of the Explorer next year, it means they remove the Fitness area from the top front and add more staterooms instead ($$$), lol.

I also wonder if a different ship will do 3/4 nights from PC in the winter.

If not it won't make the weekend cruisers very happy

I am still waiting for the Symphony sailings for late August! Even if the 6-night doesn't get released until December, the 8-night is still part of the 7+ Night Caribbean.

In the past some were broke down as Seasonal Caribbean and separate yr round. This yr different then last, but every yr is different. Some always get released outside this scheduled dates

With Freedom coming up to NJ, does anyone know what sailings she might do? I want to try a smaller ship after doing Anthem and Oasis, but probably don’t want to do Bahamas and Florida for the third year in a row. All I can find right now is that she will be doing five nights and nine nights.

So Explorer or Independence could still be back in Southampton doing the Baltic itineraries that are missing from Anthem’s routes..🤷‍♀️

Which ship will be in San Juan between May and November 2021? Freedom is not listed as being there. I see that Indy is on St Marteen port schedule every Wednesday between these dates. Would that indicate she is going from San Juan?.

From  all of the posts here and the press releases, it looks like SJU won’t have a ship over the summer.  That is  very sad news if it is true.  St. Maarten is usually early or late in a sailing from SJU so Weds doesn’t sound likely for ship out of SJU.

Just stopped by NextCruise.  Allure from Galveston itineraries are loaded in the system but not open for booking yet.  

 

First cruise to be a 4 night in Nov. 2021.  

 

I'm assuming a 2 or 3 day crew only repo followed by a 4 night revenue first cruise.  

 

NextCruise is going to call me if they open during this sailing.

Could you ask NextCruise if a 6-day Symphony and 8-day Symphony for August 2021 are showing up? Thank you so much!

Allure of the Seas will leave Miami and go to Port Canavral starting May 16th through November 7th.  It then Harmony picks back up in the port on November 21st.  There are gaps in both Allure and when Harmony leaves Barcelona on October 31st.  Maybe they have charters or they will release those dates later if they aren't 7 days.

So that explains Allure's dates since nothing in posted past November 7th..

IMO the baltic itineraries aren’t suited to Indy. Not enough public indoor space for the number of people onboard. We did the Baltic route in June a few years ago and only one day was warm enough to use the pool and a lot of the days you wouldn’t sit outside.

Adventure is similar though and she has been deployed to the Baltic from Copenhagen/Stockholm.

Having been on both Indy and Navigator in bad weather, we found Indy more crowded.

You have a point and I do agree about Freedom Class not really being the right class for the Baltics, but if Indy went back to Southampton, I imagine that she would primarily be doing Mediterranean and Canary Islands sailings with 2 or 3 Baltic sailings during June/July/August like Explorer this year so it would still make sense if she returned.

THAT is AWESOME news!!  I had heard it was going to be the Allure coming into Galveston!! Now this sounds pretty solid.

 

But they won't be able (I wouldn't think) to open sailings on the Allure from Galveston until they have final contracts with the port authority & RCI finalized to build the terminal. Negotiations are underway.... but they haven't even begun yet to move any dirt. 

 

Originally that terminal was to be completed in the Spring of '21...but it sounds like now (from your post) it won't be completed until the fall of '21. 

 

THANKS!!!! I am excited!!

I wouldn't be surprised if the terminal completes whenever and they begin using it for other ships before Allure's arrival.
