On the bright side, I'm booked on the new inaugural in April!  

I expect more changes to be announced though.

How'd you do it?  I read from somewhere that the earliest sailings for Odyssey showing up are for September 2021.  Haven't had time to verify it.

April 30th she sails from Rome.  I was booked on the transatlantic to Rome and the subsequent 1st cruise in the Med.  As it turns out they canceled everything right up to that first Med cruise.

I had a comp for March 12th Spring Break 2021 sailing canceled. Moved it to March 12th Spring Break 2022. However had to give up my extra Large Balcony room 13232 for the 4 of us, and just settle for an regular Balcony and an Interior with 2 of us in each room. At least we were able to find the Balcony and the Interior across the hall from each other and it was $400 cheaper. The difference was there was no kids sail free for 2022 sailing vs 2021 sailing. So my wife and I had to use our tier comp separately vs combining together with a better room and still not pay for the kiddos. Could be worse I guess.

APR 21... the start of spring. Could this be potentially a date where the fleet resumes sailing as well I wonder. With the continued cases spiking in the south my thought is that any cruise line wouldn't want undue risk of sailing out with many asymptomatic passengers. The american queen steamboat company that was supposed to start at the start of august is now moving back till mid August and Celestyal has cancelled thru to spring 2021m so reading the tea leaves this may indeed be the new start date if things continue on its current trajectory. This would then affect my NOV MARINER AND FEB OASIS.

I doubt that Odyssey's new inaugural has much to do with the rest of the fleet. I'm guessing even if they could speed up Odyssey a bit more, that wouldn't help much because a late transatlantic and shortened Caribbean season just isn't financially viable. Cruise lines also tend to avoid Mediterranean sailings in winter. So the only valid winter option based on weather and distance would be the Canary Islands and it might be difficult to fit Odyssey in the port schedules on a short notice. Maybe they'll add some earlier cruises for Odyssey once they're sure of  Meyer Werft's progress and COVID restrictions.
