Good morning, Norm
Appreciate your views; As usual, you make sense, when presenting the fleet argument the way you did.
I was merely expressing surprise at RCI at having gone the way of PostPanamax for X brand when it only has 8 ships IN TOTAL...compared with Princess that has over 15....thus able to have half of its fleet unable to transit.
And yes, there are other ways to go Atlantic to Pacific; QMII is just doing it, and Princess is shifting GOLDEN to the WestCoast next spring '07 for her future deployment by way of a couple of SouthAmerica itineraries ending up in California. You're correct...
Do you think RCI will go '' Asian-SouthPacific'' with its own brand ( rumoured to go: Serenade) or with X ??? ( i'd see one of the Millie going there after the new build is in service....). ???
