The Gothic Cruise 2020 is postponed. The new date: 26.09.2021 – 03.10.2021 (Port Canaveral in Cape Canaveral (Florida) see the official statement:
2020 Gothic Cruise Update:
All Cruises through June 12th have been suspended by government orders across the globe. The CDC and Johns Hopkins are both expecting a 2nd outbreak by the fall, plus they estimate our death toll to double by August. Please remember that some of the band members, and our gothic cruise family members, have health issues and were absolutely terrified of the prospect of getting on a cruise ship whether it be during or on the heels of a pandemic.
After speaking with the cruise line, and taking into account the sheer number of international guests in our group, some of whom have extended travel restrictions, it was determined it was the safest course of action for everyone that would be sailing.
This is a SPECIAL exception for the gothic cruise by Royal Caribbean. They are currently only protecting sailings up to September 1st. Salings after Sept 1st are not being given refunds if they choose to cancel.
If you have travel insurance through me as a usa citizen you are covered and can cancel outright and file with the insurance.
The new saling is: Allure of the Seas, Sept 26 2021. Sister ship to the Harmony, the Allure is still the largest ship at sea. (as they are the same gross tonnage and size).
If you want to sail this year as part of a NONgothic cruise, you can still do that. You NEED to inform me IMMEDIATELY, as Royal is going to automatically move everyone next week to the new sailing. If you choose this option, I will update your invoice to the nongothic cruise sailing price. Given the risk and how up in the air everything is, I don’t recommend it.
Because you have the option to still cruise this year, Royal is not giving refunds. Now if CDC shuts them down longer, or they do decide to protect sailings after September 1st at a later date (but before final), you could get a refund at that time. IF its all confusing, call me and I will walk you through.
For next year – the Lineup is the same:
Rotersand, Combichrist, Die Sektor and Stoneburner
Right now the prices are entry level and a bit high. I expect these to come down though as we get further into 2020.
Keep in mind you now have extra time to plan the ultimate gothic cruise vacation though!!!
Ill be adding everyone to the new group soon. The web page will take some time. Shore excursions will be refunded soon.
So please be patient!
