No, nobody knows if the cruise you have booked will actually sail
If there is one question everyone wants to know, it is if their Royal Caribbean cruise booked for later this year or in 2021 will be actually sail, and the truth is no one really knows.
Simply put, there is not enough information and too many variables to come up with odds or wager a guess at what may or may not happen.
While it stands to reason the further out your cruise is, the more time you have for the global health situation to improve, it is impossible to quantify or wager a guess as to which sailings may or may not occur.
