It's been reported over on CC that Odyssey has gone on sale in the last few hours. Currently, it appears to be available on the UK site but not yet the US site (I checked both). Inaugural is out of Fort Lauderdale on the 5th of November 2020.

I'll wait.  If the pricing on the UK site is reflective on what the pricing would be on this side of the pond, I'm not in any rush!! 😎

The word over on CC is, and I quote: "They are hosing the Brits.  $1318USD for an inside cabin.  That’s total for 2 taxes in."

I think this is in reference to the 4-night inaugural. The person who posted it is, I believe, a TA. As far as I can see, the sailings are still not available to book on the US site.

Prices are often quite different between UK and US sites. I wouldn't take conversion of those prices to USD as an indication of US price.

Yes, that is certainly true, but as I understand it, the person who gave that US price is actually seeing it on the Travel Agent's booking engine. At the current GBP/USD exchange rate, the price shown on Royal's UK website corresponds to $1828.

Of course, there are the other factors to take into consideration, such as ABTA and EU (for the time being) protection, but that still seems like a massive difference. :44_frowning2:

Agreed but also expect prices to be high.  New ship fever.  

If anyone thought she would be priced just like an older ship, please step away from the keyboard.

If I recall Symphony's first Miami based revenue cruise was short and crazy expensive.  The pier at CocoCay wasn't finished so she couldn't stop there. 

No surprise that Odyssey's first revenue cruise from Florida is high price and short, just like Symphony.

I suppose a shorter inaugural means less impact on passengers while the inevitable creases are being ironed out. I think some of the 8-night itineraries look quite interesting but I'm not sure I think they're sufficiently interesting to want to pay new ship prices for them.

It's almost $500 AUD more for a comparable itinerary on Symphony. I get the new ship fever...  but it seems 'Ultra' expensive! 🙂

Equally interesting is the home port, Port Everglades.  I'm a bit surprised she isn't heading to Miami and terminal A.

Something that I've been wondering and I don't even know if the answer is out there yet...

Is Odyssey going to run the same Royal Suite Class program as Oasis and Quantum class ships?  Or is it going to something totally different like what Spectrum did?

 

The UK website uses the same verbiage as Anthem for suites, even Royal Loft Suites so inconclusive at this point.  It doesn't mention sea/sky/star.

Deck 12 forward looks different but the UK site doesn't allow you see full deck plans.

Photo thumbnail for 5nt Eastern Caribbean & Perfect Day shows Labadee zip line.  Will Odyssey be visiting both Labadee and Perfect Day on those sailings? I know Indy is doing something similar May 2020. 

Yes, there are some 5 and 6 night that appear to stop at both private destinations.

And also a 7-night Eastern in January 2021 and the 9-night holiday sailing over New Year.

Is this odyssey?!

Yes.  According to the UK website.  

On Anthem that's on deck 12 with a conference center on deck 13, so it's not like they just used Anthem deck plans for now.  

On Spectrum there are cabins on deck 13 aft.  

So it seems like something different from either.

I went on the inaugural sailing on Freedom Of The Seas once. It was really expensive at that time  2006. It was the biggest and newest cruise ship in the world in 2006. However it was 7 days cruise. I am older and wiser now so will just wait for this one.
