I noticed that as well. One could take that as a bullish outlook by Royal Caribbean that they don't "need" to sail from there going forward, but then again, Barbados could be part of some other release later on.

Rhapsody and Enchantment aren't committed for the winter of 2023 yet.  Radiance too after her Alaska season in 2022 but wrong ocean.

It seems like Grandeur is selling well for this winter.  Maybe they'll swap in a sister ship for the following year.

Barbados seemed like a last minute option when they decided to keep Grandeur and had nowhere for her to go. Seems to have actually sold well so maybe another ship will be there. Probably selling well with UK guests looking for winter sun, plenty of direct flights from the UK to Barbados, much more so than with some of the US ports.

Considering the monetary base of the United States, the 2021 rate is reasonable in real prices. It only appears more expensive nominally. Ask to pay in Bitcoin. 

Today Bitcoin is $57,365 so if we get there I’m really out.

Been looking and after a certain point Galveston is getting shafted on 7 night cruises. For 2023 the only 7 night destinations are Roatan, Costa Maya, and Cozumel. At least with Liberty you got to run Jamaica and Grand Cayman as one option. Right now it's looking like a step backwards worth a larger ship...

There aren't many going to Mexico/Honduras from Port Canaveral, either.   So frustrating, because Falmouth just isn't a great destination.

Allure and Oasis class in general don't tender so GC isn't an option.  That limits options.  The same was observed the first time Allure was set to sail from Galveston.  Fortunately as the saying goes... the ship is the destination. Not ideal, but something.

I guess it depends on your perspective. I would much rather go to Coz, Roatan and Costa Maya than GC and Falmouth.

Never been to GC but I did the Coz, Roatan, CM on Harmony 2 years ago, far better than Falmouth which is the worst port in the Caribbean. I don't know why Royal would choose to send cruises there than the ports around Mexico.

My main issue is instead of expanding places to go they are removing them for trips leaving from Galveston. I agree that Falmouth doesn't habe a lot to offer unless you travel but removing it as an option and not putting something else in place is frustrating. 

 

I'm currently setup to do a B2B on Liberty because it will only visit 1 port twice in 2 weeks. There is no way I would do a B2B going to the same ports. 

 

And yes the ship is a part of the trip but I like to use it as a pleasant means to get to a dive site.  And I am sure others look at it in a similar way. I honestly would not be interested in a "trip to no where".

I hear you but Galveston, like Bayonne and Baltimore are geographically undesirable cruise ports because they're so far North of everything.  The limitation here is due to the port and where it's located combined with the ship and where it can stop.  

A lot of people would love 7 night ABC island cruises from Florida but it's too far so they can't do it.  Blame the ports in Florida for being too far away or blame the ships for not being fast enough.  Blame whatever you want the bottom line is you can't get there from here with the ships that are available.  

People in Texas desperately wanted Oasis class so Royal is moving one there.  You can want her to make a stop at the moon but it ain't gonna happen.
