Any news at this point form Andy would be welcome, but given the HUGE unknowns as to when things will be safe again, I would rather punt this until 2022 myself.
There's a legal concept called "force majeure" that might be coming into play, here.
It's possible RC won't continue GLOBAL suspension of cruising. Allure of the Seas should be sailing from Spain in October, also some of smaller ships should be sailing from Europe. Full Metal Cruise is scheduled 23.-28.9.2020 and it hasn't been cancelled yet. So it pretty much depends on location.cowboy71 wrote: ↑Sun Jul 19, 2020 4:09 pmUS death toll is still hovering around 1,000 deaths a day, worldwide we are regularly seeing close to a quarter a million new cases everyday, Florida is completely borked, and RC reckon they'll be sailing from 1st of October?
To quote a classic Aussie movie, "Tell 'em they're dreamin'"
as always you do make interesting points , with that said , I say keep it in Florida only , and just postpone cruise to early 2022 for the greater good .Cardest wrote: ↑Thu Jul 23, 2020 9:31 pmPart of me wishes the 70k cruise didn't always have to sail out of Florida each year.
I cannot imagine the undertaking it would be to have the 70k cruise operate from a different
country each year, or even another state in the US.
Just wishful thinking.
I do imagine that if say, 70k was to sail out of Vancouver or Kiel it would still sell at least close to 3,000 tickets.
RC sail out of different ports around the globe. Sydney and Nassau and many more.
Florida is screwed at this point.
Easy option I suppose would be just to postpone until 2022 maybe.
What if 70k did go global. Yes or no?
What do we sailors think of that?
Why so? If 70k could be in August in Europe weather could be warm enough in Southern Europe. Fuel costs could be less between countries and cruise could be 5 nights for the same cost. Andy could even change the bands in the middle of the cruise. RC does that with performers. I don't mind going to Florida from Finland in Jan-Feb time..
truth be told I always wanted to go to Europe , bucket list goal , but as I am getting older I do not know if I will be able to cross that off my list , if the cruise did expand like you point out , to experience new boundaries , I think I would wait for 70000 Tons to return to Florida at a later point in time . Florida is my home state and 90 % of my travels are within my home state . You do have some cool ideas and maybe the powers that be will consider your thoughts .FinnPete wrote: ↑Fri Jul 24, 2020 1:33 pmWhy so?

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.
