YIPPEE !! Finally August 21, 2021 Symphony Opens for Booking

Recommended Posts

NOT QUITE YET...

....is this going to be a Live Blog.  I am NOT looking to set the new World Land Speed Record for starting the earliest Live Blog.  It will turn into a live blog MUCH later when we get closer to sail date.

I just wanted to announce to the world that the long anticipated 8 night Symphony itinerary for 21 - 29 August 2021 has finally shown up on the website !!!! 

I've been stalking this cruise for months.  They announced the itinerary - Labadee, Aruba and Curacao - months ago, but never opened it for booking until today.

I quickly snagged one of the Deck 8 Aqua Theater Suites because I could not afford (or didn't want) any of the other Star Class rooms that were left.  Believe it or not, some of the SC rooms were already gone by the time I got there !!  The aft-facing Star Loft was there but I don't really want that one.  I have NO interest in that awful Ultimate Family thing and the Royal Loft is WAAAY out of my price range on this cruise (and so was the Ultimate Family thing, to be fair).

So let the fun begin.  I BELIEVE that this will be the first Oasis class ship to go to Aruba and Curacao.  I could be wrong about that.  For sure it will be the first time Symphony has been there.  This will also be my first cruise on Symphony and I'm very excited. 3 ports in 8 days is my idea of heaven.

Interest, anyone ?

That's a fantastic itinerary for an Oasis class ship!  It's just so dang hot down in the Southern Caribbean that time of the year!  I'm pushing it with a Labor Day cruise to the Eastern Caribbean!

I agree with you about the heat.

This type of itinerary is a game changer for me. Looking less than 2 years in the future I have finished school and am on the strict teachers schedule going to southern Caribbean in less than 9 nights is impossible with my schedule unless I’m going to San Juan which from Winnipeg Canada costs more per person than the cruise itself.

Grab a room and let’s go !

Creation of Thread * (Explanation of Booking + Cabin Selection Details + Itinerary Coverage) = Live Blog Started

You have the forum record for earliest Live Blog, whether desired or not. 😁

@Matt, you are fully and completely on the hook for starting this horrible, awful, terrible, no good trend (that I will now shamelessly find some reason to follow).

@twangster, your crown is gone unless that other cruise you mentioned in what WAS the earliest live blog at the time is still within the window of victory.

@Lovetocruise2002, you are hereby in fourth place. No bronze for you!

Not so fast Charlie Brown.  

This live blog:  Feb 19, 2020 to Aug 31, 2021 = 549 days.

My live blog:  Jan. 18, 2020 to Jan 16, 2022 = 729 days.

Oh thank goodness!  This Canadian is tired of getting blamed! 😄

And I love that gif.  I have been using that line on many kids ever since Madalorian started.  Best line ever!
