    I am going with October 31 Halloween ! for postponement or cancellation .

    Here is a possible suggestion that could work for 2022 , the Super Bowl is being played in Los Angeles on 2/6/22 .
    70000 Tons could happen that weekend starting 2/3/22 and ending 2/7/22 :shred: :shred: :shred:
    departing and returning to Fort Lauderdale Florida as usual .

    I mean this is even assuming we get an official cancellation. I think we all know that it’s not beneath them and their... “unique” levels of customer care to just leave it without saying anything at all

    I have to agree with you , as the song title of Metallica says "Sad but True ".
    From a courtesy vantage point , an official statement is in good taste to hopefully be released this month providing official updates .

    I’m guessing there’s still a game of chicken going on between 70k and Royal Caribbean. Neither of them officially wants to cancel because they’ll be on the hook for a ton of $$.

    That could drag out indefinitely.

    I was reading on the FAQ on the Royal Caribbean site and they have a goal of resuming cruises on 12/1/20 , they are attempting as of now . Not clear how the arrive at that date , with no coronavirus vaccine available . I am curious of how theses cruises will work out , if they actually have them . I would say with 99 percent certainty that there is not a way possible to have 70000 Tons in January 2021 ,that is worthwhile and safe .

    Nice to know the World isn’t really changing,it would be great for 70k to do everyone a solid and just cancel it but no probably the same old customer service we gotten used to.MORC changed things up and took over a resort ,thing sold out quickly.Have heard mostly positive things about their customer service,maybe 70k can sell the cruise to them if they decide to bail on everything.

    This RC announcement makes me think that 70k will not happen. Honestly with the number of restrictions that will probably be in place I don't think we'd attend anyway. Florida is such a hot mess right now and based on what I've dealt with in my ER I don't expect it to be better in winter, I suspect it will be much worse actually.

    Hope you guys are doing ok!!!! I just booked Rock Fest Barcelona for next year..first Euro Metal Fest!
    That's quite optimistic of you... things here in Barcelona are not exactly well. As I am writing, we are experiencing a 10pm to 6am curfew as well as a confinement during weekends. Since there is a lot of uncertainty about when a vaccine will be publicly available, I am definitely not optimistic about Rock Fest. Things should change, like, A LOT.

    Who thinks the sail date will come and go with no official announcement of any kind?

    No one has bought tickets, so there will be no one to officially complain.

      Honestly, knowing the skipper, that is a very real possibility. We'll get a post sometime next year "Hello Sailors (NOT!). 70k 2021 didn't happen..."

      Reminds me of a time years ago I was standing on a train platform waiting for my train on a cold winters morning in Melbourne. The train I was waiting for comes in to the station, not slowing down, zooming right past. Voice comes over the train station's speakers "Good morning passengers. The 7.21am train to the city scheduled to stop here.....did not."

      :lol:
