We did the Dubai cruise on Jewel for the first time this February.

We enjoyed it so much we seriously would book it every year if it were offered.

Superb weather , great scenery , interesting ports - had it all for us.

Sure beat the winter weather in the UK!

Looks like another booking on the 3rd October?

Very odd, coming from Malacca and going to Penang next. What kind of resupplying is this, if she visits the same area twice when she's allegedly on a repo.

Right... so, Radiance of the Seas now appears again on 7/10/20 in Singapore with the next stop scheduled for Colombo. She has appeared three times in October's port schedule, makes me wonder whether she is sailing a few cruises out of Singapore before heading back to Europe?

With the new warning from Australia foreign affairs and the relationship between China and the west deteriorating .
Do you think the ships will be going to China ?

TBH, it appears that Hong Kong is now China.  So I'd apply the same or similar caution on cruising out of Hong Kong. Australia has warned its citizens of a risk of "arbitrary detention"  if they travel to China.  Due to the new laws enacted, I'd be hesitant to travel to Hong Kong. I'm glad I had the chance to go at one time, but it may not happen again in my travelling lifetime.

The itineraries have been released now for the Asia 2021 season with only Voyager and Spectrum.

 

Spectrum  HK / Shanghai / HK 

 

http://creative.rccl.com/Sales/Royal/Deployment/2021_2022/SC_2021.pdf

 

Voyager May to October Beijing   (most likely Singapore October to May)

 

http://creative.rccl.com/Sales/Royal/Deployment/2021_2022/VY_2021.pdf

 

 

Next question is whether Wonder will be added a year later or will she just be moved to another region? Will she just start with a Singapore deployment possibly and then move to Beijing in 2023?

That would seem to still be the plan with the Hawaii port bookings for October 2021 still standing and she would do a transpacific following the Alaska 2021 season. 

 

It does appear that she does a Panama Canal sailing following the Alaska 2022 season though as a booking has appeared at Grand Cayman.

I don’t think it will be coming as we are getting a second wave which seems to worse.

The cruise ban is till September and I would say in the first couple of weeks in August boarder force will announce a further 3 months.Which would take it to the end of the year.

So you should know in 3-4 weeks

If things would get better the Hawaii cruise ban might be lifted earlier? As it currently seems no Australia Season and no transpacific cruises either. Hence if things do improve in the US and Asia, at least Wuantum and Ovation would do ok, as both of the vessels would do their crossings from Japan on the Bearing Sea in april 2021

The inquiry was not for 2020, but for a possible 2021 sailing 15 months from now. For that one they do have port bookings still in place for 2021. 

 

Port calls for the fall of 2020 have been cancelled, while they do still hold the bookings for the Spring return port calls for the eastbound crossings.

Hawaii is part of the US which is currently under a CDC no sail order until at least September 30th. Hawaii has many restrictions for travelers which currently includes a 14 day quarantine for everyone including their own returning residents.

I said I don't believe they'll sail in October. There is much to be done before they can sail. They won't get the recommendations from the task force until end of August and then they still need to implement and get CDC approval. Sadly, I believe that will take more than a month.
