  1. Yes this is where I look it up. Here is an updated Veiw
  2. This look like what happened when my parents came home early and I had a house party going on...... Everyone is running away lol....
  3. Does anyone know the story Empress of the Seas? I see rumors online that it is going to be scrapped At last word from Royal Caribbean Group Chairman and CEO Richard Fain, only the pullmantur cruises will be scrapped. I tend to believe that. Plus this would be used if Cuba is opened back up A Royal Caribbean spokesperson gave Cruise Critic the following statement: "Empress is not headed to the scrap yard, she’s still a part of the Royal Caribbean Fleet." -- There is no date of this comment
  4. I agree. RC will hold off getting rid of the smaller ships until at least after the election. Who wins the US election will determined what they will do
  5. At last word from Royal Caribbean Group Chairman and CEO Richard Fain, only the pullmantur cruises will be scrapped. I tend to believe that as i read many financial reports and look like RC is the strongest Cruise line out there. As stated before by Richard Fain RC can make a profit with only 40% cap on many of its Ships This is due to how new RC fleet compare to the other companies.
  6. How many more company will fold do to this shut down?????
  7. They may just be returning crew members. This may not be the end to Monarch.
  8. I just check out the website and it looks like u can still book cruise for nov
  9. While that is true, when u look at the full fleet of 109 ship. You see them removing 13 ships. That is about a 12% reduction in the total fleet size. Carnival Cruise Line - 27 ships Princess Cruises - 19 ships Holland America Line - 14 ships Seabourn - 5 ships Cunard - 3 Ships AIDA Cruises - 13 ships Costa Cruises - 17 ships P&O Cruises (UK) - 7 Ships P&O Cruises (Australia) - 4 Ships
  10. WOW 13 ships to leave the fleet!!! Looks like Carnival is having a hard time with shutdown then RC is.
  11. Keep in mind, the company has more flexibility now that they own 100% of Silversea Cruises. By using the stock to buy the rest of the company, RC now has more assets on the books if they need to get more debt. ..... In the end by buying this company, RC become stronger financially and more able to weather the out come of coronavirus
  12. Friday, June 10, 2020 MIAMI – July 10, 2020 – Royal Caribbean Group (NYSE: RCL) has purchased the remaining shares of Silversea Cruises, a pioneer and leader in ultra-luxury and expedition cruising. The move to full ownership comes two years after Royal Caribbean Group acquired a two-thirds share of the cruise line in July 2018. “Silversea has been a great fit for our company from the very first day,” said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Group. “The cultures of the two organizations have proven to be harmonious, and guests have responded favorably to the combination.” Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, who took over the company from his late father, will serve as chairman of Silversea. Roberto Martinoli will remain the brand’s president and CEO. “Manfredi and Roberto have brought a fresh point of view to our company, as well as deep knowledge of their brand’s unique audience,” Fain said. “Their skills – and Manfredi’s inimitable style – will continue to play an important role in growing Silversea into the future.” Said Lefebvre: “The combination of our companies has been everything I hoped for. The skills and resources of Royal Caribbean Group have helped us grow and flourish. We share a vision about the bright future of cruising, and I look forward to being a shareholder in the broader Royal Caribbean Group.” Added Martinoli: “Thanks to the incredible resources and skills of Royal Caribbean Group, Silversea will grow and thrive. Today marks another key step in our drive to uncontested leadership in ultra-luxury and expedition cruising.” The remaining one-third stake held by Heritage Cruise Holding Ltd. was paid for in the form of 5.2 million shares of Royal Caribbean Group common stock, which represents about 2.5% of the total common stock. Perella Weinberg Partners LP served as financial advisor and Skadden Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP served as legal advisor to the company regarding this transaction. Barclays Bank PLC served as financial advisor to Manfredi Lefebvre and Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP provided legal counsel.
  13. What RC could do is just take over the route of the old Pullmantur Cruises. The cruise line made money in 2019 and they have a market for it. RC could just start a new cruise line for Spain owning it 100% with the 3 ships and the one that they were going to tranfer in 2021
  14. I would love to go on the smaller ship. Like how RC fleet is getting bigger when others are getting smaller
  15. I agree but unlike FL. The Governor in NY has no problem enforcing this. the Port auth. controls the Major Airports and they will ensure people follow the Quarantine
  16. Grandeur of the Seas ] On October 16, 2019, it was announced Grandeur of the Seas would be transferred to Pullmantur Cruises in the Spring of 2021. Wonder what is going to happen to Grandeur of the Seas now.
  17. The only thing I can say about this is.... I hope due to the age of the ship is the reason the getting rid of them.... Maybe RC will give them newer ships so they can be a stronger company after this is all over.
  18. I just wish all the post got together to make one plan
  19. Fuel cost is the Number one cost behind building the Ship. When they keep that cost down they are more able to keep the trips cheaper
  20. Can't wait to see it when it is all finished
  21. Can't wait to see this ship. 🙂 It is going to Nice
  22. If u use a travel agent, They will help u with hotel section
