Oh, shoot - I just realized that the itinerary is Dec '23-Feb '24 - we don't  retire until July '24.  Doubt my job will give me 3 months off, lol.

I will be retiring 2023-24 school year. First segment of the cruise is for me. No more teacher strikes for me.

If they started doing this every few years, I can imagine you'd get a decent number of people who would do the whole thing in sections, similar to people hiking the Appalachian Trail.

We just had priced window room for two $138331.64

Yes also included deluxe beverage package, voom internet, wash and fold laundry, shore excursions to seven wonders of the world for platinum and above

Important to note the "wash and fold laundry" is up to 3 bags, per person, per week (I think RC prices each bag at $35 on normal cruises). 

I hate folding laundry, so I love that someone else would do it for me

This question would apply to any "world cruise", but how do you keep the theater entertainment fresh on 274 day cruise?  I can't imagine you watch the same 3-4 theater productions every week.   I can easily see how you bring fresh entertainers / acts like comedians, singers, magicians on throughout the cruise, but would expect the large productions to be limited over that period of time.

Everyone gets a private showing!

Lots of headliner shows and some local performers from the different ports

Stage to Screen never gets old!  Okay, maybe it would after 39 times.

This is a great logistical question. If I had to guess, Royal Caribbean will probably create 7-8 shows, either based on existing licensed IP or original content, that has minimal or easy-to-load-in sets. They'll rehearse these in Miami, then ship to the next major port, and load-in when the ship arrives. On-board, they'll probably spend one week loading in the show and rehearsing on-stage, then run the show for 3 weeks, then load-out while the next show loads in. This is typically how major road houses in the USA work with Broadway touring shows. 

Alternately, they may have 5-6 shows in reparatory and rotate throughout the entire sailing, but that requires more storage space and more talent. It would be much easier to cycle the shows every few weeks. 

This is all in addition to the heavy use of "headliner" acts that they would source locally.

For logistic perspective I wish RCL would organize a way to allow cruise on the world cruise to send things to RCL ports were it will be delivered to the ship. That way , people can shop online or just have family/friends send them what they miss.

Most I like... No Bora Bora? Thats inhuman. Best stop n that area...! Then I see them doing like others. Most cruises can be had around a 100 a night for plain Jane... This one is over $200 a night starting.

Do other world cruises include all the inclusions that this one does? I've never looked at them before, so I am not sure what is "standard" and what isn't.
