    Odyssey of the Seas

    The Odyssey of the Seas, Royal Caribbean International's new ship, is progressing well at the Meyer Werft, shipyard, in Germany. Odyssey of the Seas will homeport in Port Everglades starting in Nov. 2020. She will be sailing eight- and six-night Caribbean cruises ahead of her inaugural year in Europe for summer 2021.

    The ship is a sister to the 2019-built Spectrum of the Seas, as the Quantum-Ultra Class builds on the successful Quantum, Anthem and Ovation of the Seas.

    However, I bet the cruise lines wish that they could put all of there newbuilds on-hold for a few years!

    I am surprised they don't have "force majeure" clauses in their contracts with shipyards.

    One article on the subject of "force majeure" for info :- https://www.pinsentmasons.com/out-la...majeure-clause


      Hi all
      The do doo is starting to hit the fan……..an announcement from Royal Caribbean.

      Dear valued Travel Partners,

      “The health and well-being of our guests, crew, and the communities we visit remain our top priority during this time. As partners, we are committed to bringing you the latest news and updates as soon as we receive them.

      Our newest ship, Odyssey of the SeasSM, has truly been on an odyssey. This beautiful ship has changed homeports and crossed the Atlantic to prepare for her first sailings in the Caribbean. Unfortunately, the odyssey isn’t over yet – eight crew members onboard have tested positive for COVID-19. These cases occurred after the vaccination was administered to all 1,400 Odyssey crew, but before the vaccines were fully effective. The affected crew are doing well - they are quarantined and being cared for onboard.

      To protect the remaining crew and prevent further cases, all crew will be quarantined for 14 days. As a result, we are cancelling Odyssey’s July 3-July 25, 2021 departures.”

      Coupled with the announcement that the CDC in the US has put Celebrity Summit on the red list for its Covid outbreak meaning it can’t sail for 2 months is starting to put pressure on cruise lines instigating a policy of a fully vaccinated ship.
