Early Ryndam Cruises

Recommended Posts

I got a call from my PCC a little bit ago because I asked for a call when Ryndam bookings became available. Some for June(?) in northern Europe are becoming available but are not on the website yet.

The August 3rd sailing was available on the website for one day last week, but then it disappeared. 
 

Hopefully, we’ll see them soon.

My PCC sent me an email today indicating the summer Europe sailings will be available Friday and the premiere voyage next Wednesday.

I just spoke to my PCC again and she confirmed that the summer sailings will be released Friday. I have a request in for a booking. We'll see what happens.

We on the East Coast sometimes forget that Seattle is in another time zone. It is only 6:15am there. I would suspect that the rollout would be closer to 9am Pacific time.

Just after 9am PST...still not seeing anything ...hopefully soon

Just checked consumer website and travel agent booking system at 16:22EST (11:22PST) - nada .......

 

I've noticed HAL IT department tends to update new itineraries on the consumer website on the weekends, so maybe tomorrow or early next week??????

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...

As of 20:45 EST Saturday 1/25/20 still nothing.  My guess is they don't come out until mid/end of next week, if they indeed are about to be launched at all :)

I am confident the Ryndam sailings will be released on a Monday-Thursday since the Personal Cruise Consultants don't work Friday - Sunday,

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...

OK, could not contain myself.

 

I called HAL today.  The PCC told me that she does not see anything yet for Ryndam.  She was not aware that last Friday was a rumored day of release and she checked with her supervisor on their group chat and no-one had any intel either.

 

She did say that it should be soon.....12 to 18 months out is standard.

 

I'm expecting the good people on cruise critic to blow the horn when anyone sees the Ryndam cruises listed!

 

Carry on and cruise on......

Just saw a post on another social media page for TA’s that the Ryndam bookings will become available for booking on 1/29.

That posting has been out there for awhile. Since many of our PCC's thought it was going to be last week, HAL apparently had the common last minute tweeking to accomplish. The good news is, regardless of the date of booking announcement, we'll all be among the first to know!

It's still not listed for us "regular folk" on the HAL website or my favorite site, VTG.  

 

Can you toss us some crumbs......tell us the itinerary and how did the prices seem?

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?

No other itineraries were yet released. HAL is focusing on the Premier Sailing first and will undoubtedly roll the others out in time. Obviously they will be Baltic and the North!

I was able to see the Ryndam's 2021 European sailings in POLAR earlier (travel agent booking system for HAL, Princess, Cunard and Seabourn). 

 

After the inaugural 7 day from Trieste to Rome on May 15th 2021 she then does a 10 day Rome to Amsterdam on May 22nd. Upon arrival in Amsterdam on June 1st she does a 12 night Baltic round trip Amsterdam then does a series of 7 and 14 day cruises to Norway/Fjords, all round trip Amsterdam until October 10th when she then repositions on a 14 day voyage to Ft. Lauderdale arriving 10/24/21.  Nothing beyond that.  Many of these sailings are available to book as consecutive cruise options.

 

These itineraries are bookable for Agents via automation, but are not yet on the HAL website

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?
