Here is the latest update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file.

Thanks! As I've told you, your comprehensive list is on of our go-to resources whenever we book a cruise. 

 

The format looks great, even on a phone. I know it was a lot of additional work, on top of all the research to find the information. We all appreciate it!

For a minute I thought there were a lot of school cruises (Road Scholar group) but then I realized the scholarship  is spelled Rhodes.  Duh.

Thanks for the work you do for us. 😉

I noticed a mistake: 

 

Nieuw Amsterdam

14 March 2019 – 21 March 2019 : Caribbean : Quilt Retreat Group

 

They must be in a different ship. I'm booked on the NA Mar 17-24 2019 to the Mexican Riviera.

Thanks so much for doing this list every month, I find it super helpful!

 

A heads up that while I was on a HAL cruise last month, i picked up the new 2019/20 Cruise Atlas, and in the back there is a "ships at a glance" list and I noticed that it shows various updates for the R-class ships.  I am not sure if this means it'll be a dry dock, but wanted to see if anyone else had info on this???

We are super excited to be on the Koningsdam March 6th for 11 nights!!  I’ve seen on our role call that there is a group booking for an entertainer (Perry Grant).  I have no clue who that is but I poked around to try to find out how big this group is going to be and any potential impacts on the rest of the passengers.  I saw on their FB site they are advertising all sorts of private events including private concerts every evening in the Crows Nest.   My question - would the ship actually close off that entire venue every evening for the group?   I haven’t been on the ship but it seems like that would be a popular place and would displace people.    I know overall it won’t trouble us.  We will enjoy our fun in the sun and out of the snow!  But I’m more curious than anything.   Does anyone have any experience  or advice with anything similar to this music group cruise?
