As many of you know, Royal Caribbean will begin releasing its 2018-2019 itineraries on the week of March 6: http://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2017/01/24/royal-caribbean-announces-2018-2019-deployment-opening-schedule-dates

 

Please use this thread to discuss changes you see of interest, as well as any particularly good deals.  Personally, I'm always interested in odd-ball sailings, like a weekend sailing on a ship that does not offer it usually.

Me and Jessica are curious to see it this sailing is repeated next year. They only do one a year apparently, may of even just been a one off.

Looks really interesting though, since we live in Halifax we could just get off in our port to save on a return flight, making it a 14 day sailing.

 

Don't think we can do it though, it's a long sailing and have other hopefull plans for the fall. But I coined a new phrase, 'book first, think later'.

 

Prices are in Canadian and should be better next week, if they repeat the sailing that is.

Jerel,

We did this cruise in 2015, and it was amazing. You have to go to Iceland at least once in your life. We really enjoyed Oslo, Halifax, and the Faroes as well.

I love the Radiance class ships too.

I definitely would recommend booking it now, and figuring everything out later!

We did something similar without the trans Atlantic part, and the itinerary was awesome. I absolutely loved Norway and Iceland. Why would someone would want to go to Halifax, though? ;)

 

 

 

FYI, the Halifax comment is a joke, so don't assume I was being literal. I've been a couple of times by cruise ship and loved it each time. The lobster and the poutine were also quite good.

Yes, it's done once a year. We were on it this past August. Not to be missed. Avatar is from that trip.

 

They changed it a bit for this coming trip. We had16 days, 4 days in Iceland, 3 ports. Overnight in Reykjavik. This year they dropped one Iceland port and shortened the trip to 15 days.

My prediction:  The email I got yesterday said the new cabin recategorization will begin March 8th (Wednesday).  If you look at the current sale countdown on the RCCL website based on the hours left in the sale it will end at midnight tomorrow night (Tuesday night).  Just in time for March 8th, new sales and new itineraries.  Just me speculating but it seems to make sense.

Hmm... I'm attempting some deductive reasoning while looking at the RCL booking site...  There's a banner saying the current sale ends in 36:50 (currently at 9:10 Mountain/11:10 am Eastern) on March 6.  Assuming the sale will end before the new itineraries are announced does indeed seem to indicate that March 8 is a likely date.  Of course, it could be at or beyond that time....

I've emailed my TA to book my wife and me a cabin on an early September to mid-October 2018 5-night Bermuda cruise out of Cape Liberty as soon as she sees the itineraries. Hoping a good balcony will be within my budget (yes, I set one this time ;) ).

What does Phase 1 mean for the Caribbean posting this week?  Thanks!

Someone once said one was seasonal sailings and the other was year round schedules.

According to Tapatalk, Symphony of the Seas is selling right now, but you have to call the Crown and Anchor Society number, no other number works, they tell you Wednesday. Crown and Anchor is booking, about 20 people have booked the Transatlantic on December 10, 2018. Balconies are going for about $3200 for 2 people.

 

As I said this is according to postings on Tapatalk.
