  1. You can start a Roll Call here: https://www.cruisecritic.com/rollcalls/?cruise_line_id=8&ship_id=295&page=3
  2. Where on Carnival can I find my FCC and $600 OBC ? I've perused all around my account. I can see my booked cruises, but not my FCC and $600 OBC. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. Jubilee was out first cruise -- our honeymoon in 1987. Miami to Nausea, Puerto Rico, and I think Jamaica.
  4. They will keep the Shareholder OBC... it really only costs them between $10 and $50 for a $100 OBC, depending on what the passenger spends on. Drinks can't cost more than $1 to make but cost $10. Profit on excursions would be the least profitable. I would think that Pixels has a huge markup.
  5. I believe the FCC/OBC is only good towards a new cruise... not an existing cruise, which is why I selected a full refund. Otherwise, I too would have I have moved it to my 3 existing cruises booked for 2021.
  6. $600 OBC overrides all previous OBC if you select that with the FCC. It's not in addition to your current OBC.
  7. First... do the math on your FCC + OBC, and compare it to what you already have. Math is god. I ended up with 3 cruises cancelled this year. Even with the $1,800 OBC, that barely matches my OBC's and incentives. And the small print says that any FCC is only applied to a single cruise (not multiple cruises) does not carry over to additional cruises... Carnival keeps it. Again, Math is your friend in determining how to proceed. Don't be emotional and greedy, and moody and think the $600 OBC is the best move. Perhaps it is... and perhaps not. Understand the contract before making a decision.
  8. Perhaps I would believe the article is I knew (and confirmed) the Author actually placed a 1 million dollar short on all the cruise line stocks... 😂
  9. Thanks all. I have some additional clarification need... So, I booked a 16 day cruise for $4,000. If I decide to take the FCC and $600 OBC, and have an existing 7 day cruise for $1500... do I get the $600 OBC, plus an additional FCC of $2,500 ?
  10. Here's the million dollar question...Can I use the FCC and $600 OBC on a cruise I already booked for 2021 ?
  11. Yup. There are a lot of State-side jobs and revenue that is being impacted and lost due to the covid-19 cruise stoppage. Seems to me that the US government has a lot to gain by at least making loans to the cruise lines. Total U.S.-based Spending in 2018 was $23.95 billion. There are nearly 422,000 jobs in the US that support the cruise industry, with wages of $23.15 billion. Seems to me that it would be wise for the US government to support the cruise line with loans that would keep them afloat. Page 3 provides a nice summary of the stats for each US State: https://cruising.org/-/media/research-updates/research/contribution-of-the-international-cruise-industry-to-the-us-economy-2018.pdf
  12. The cruise lines are not going to start up again until the ports they visit open up. Below is a list of closed ports, and includes what looks like a majority of the Caribbean, and Canada. https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5097/
