Thanks for sharing that! The Fantasy is scheduled to visit Grand Cayman starting March 30, 2012. It'll be visiting on alternate Mondays through December 24. The Magic has been on an alternate Tuesdays schedule.
The Magic's scheduled to visit Grand Cayman on April 3, 2012 (a week after the Fantasy's first visit). After that, the Magic takes a break from Grand Cayman until Sept. 25, 2012, when it resumes bi-weekly visits through December 18. Then, it returns six days later on December 24 (special holiday itinerary, no doubt - both the Magic and Fantasy will be there Christmas Eve!).
Now, let's move to Sint Maarten (Eastern Caribbean) The Fantasy's first visit there is Monday, March 26, 2012, The Magic will be there on Tuesday, March 27, 2010. After that, the Fantasy starts visiting on Tuesdays and the Magic doesn't visit again for the rest of the year.
A red flag pops up, because the Fantasy is scheduled to be in Grand Cayman four days after Sint Maarten (March 26 and 30). This is not possible on the traditional schedule, so something else is going on. Even if the Fantasy went directly from Sint Maarten back to Port Canaveral, there's not time to then get over to Grand Cayman on that schedule. So, assume it will not return to Port Canaveral before it heads to Grand Cayman. Some sort of grand Eastern/Western extended inaugural itinerary?
So... Where will the Magic be in fall 2012 when it's not visiting Grand Cayman? It'll be either a 7-night or 14-night itinerary, since it's back in Grand Cayman every 14 days. I'm still searching around to see if it pops up at any other ports (many don't report their schedules this far in advance). The same is true for summer 2012 - I haven't been able to find a port in Europe that shows it on its schedule (so far, none have had schedules going that far into the future), but I'm still looking.
Life gets more interesting between now and the 18th, when the TAs get their briefing!
