It is now being reported that Royal Caribbean is cancelling current cruises on all ships that are currently offering Caribbean itineraries. Royal Caribbean will send the Oasis Class ships to the Mexican Riviera and the remaining ships all to the Mediterranean. This redeployment comes after US Federal Marshals seized the Carnival Triumph after a lawsuit was filed against Carnival for the death of a passenger on board the Costa Concordia.
It is reported they are fearing US Marshals will seize a Royal Caribbean ship in the Caribbean due to the fire on board the Azamara Quest. Royal Caribbean owns Azamara Club Cruises, and as we saw today with Carnival, if a lawsuit is filed against a cruise line, you may seize one of their parent company’s ships. One passenger who was on board the Azamara Quest claimed that she would sue the pants off Royal Caribbean because it was too hot on the ship without air conditioning.
Royal Caribbean is even taking extra measures to make sure the Federal Marshals cannot find any of the ships. Royal Caribbean will camouflage all of their ships to look like the ocean, so that they cannot be spotted by the Marshals. We obtained one of these renderings last night…
After Oasis and Allure’s spring season in the Mexican Riviera, they will transit the Panama Canal, sail up the Mississippi River, make its way up the Chicago River, and will then offer a summer season touring the Great Lakes while home porting in the beautiful and exotic city of Cleveland, Ohio. The ships will both call in cities such as Detroit, Sandusky, Buffalo, Toronto, and Green Bay. Sounds amazing, and with prices starting at $6,000 per person for an interior room, there is no way you can pass up this great April Fool’s Day sale!
