    Terrible day for the hard-working employees who've done nothing wrong.

    But it's also another missed opportunity for corporate to clean house. Security should have been carrying Duffy's boxes out the door today, and Donald's interview should have been done on the sidewalk. 


    I don't know all the history here corporation wise....what is wrong with Duffy's leadership?

  2. We have never missed the ship. We like most other experienced cruisers show up a day early when we fly. I know that not everyone agrees with excursions from the ship. We have been late, past all aboard on an excursion. The ship called our guide when we were stuck in traffic. That day it was money well spent. 

    We also learned a valuable lesson about drinking in port, time flies by. We pulled up to the ship and there was one worker, everything outside had been cleaned up. He had a clip board and asked our names, crossed them off when we told him. He did mention there was one more group behind us.

  3. We had our May 10th cruise cancelled. I filled out the form the day I received it. I also rebooked that day for March 2021. Today my agent sent a new confirmation from carnival. It has the OBC on it clearly labeled.There maybe FCC also. Not labeled FCC, there is $300 under coupns/credits and $450 under payments received. 

    I wish when we submitted our request we received a note telling us the amount of FCC.

  4. I filled out the form from Carnival and chose the FCC and OBC. I made a booking for March. 

    I'm not sure what the coupons/credits are or the payments received. The OBC is labeled. I paid a $150 deposit. That leaves $600 I'm not sure about, is that FCC? 

    How do we know the exact amount of FCC?

  5. We are OV bookers, sometimes even obstructed view. I think fear of no window to the outside world scares us. We booked a balcony for Alaska, didn't think it was worth the extra $$. There was a time we booked portholes on a regular basis. One trip the noise was so awful, we have never done it again.


    With so many issues cruise ships have had with "THE VIRUS". I couldn't imagine an inside cabin for some of these quarantined ships or ships that couldn't dock. 

  6. I love this topic. My husband and I have been having this discussion between the two of us as a way to pass time around the house. It's like the game what would you do if you won the lottery.  We say...

    *Don't prepay gratuities

    *Don't buy drink package before you board

    We always do both of these, something we will do different with OBC to spend

    *Book a spa session


    *Liquor to bring home


  7. On Monday when our May 10th cruise was cancelled we were sad, but not shocked. We often use B-days and anniversaries as reasons to book cruises. Which means my husband's 45th B-day celebration was cancelled. On Monday with the announcement, we booked 2 cruises. One in March 2021 for our anniversary and we will use our FCC & OBC. The other one is booked for May 17th, hoping to still celebrate a week late. We know this may get cancelled, it was such a deal we thought we would chance it.


    So, yes we will continue sailing.

  8. My travel agent told me today the the FCC does not happen instantly, there is a process period. She says the FCC is linked to your VIFP#. She told me she'll be able to find it easily. I have had FCC credit before from a cruise we cancelled. We rebooked a new cruise a week later, the FCC credit was there for her to use towards payment. She says this will be the same situation.

  9. We had a B-day cruise booked for my husband on May 10th, cancelled this morning 😡. We booked a March anniversary cruise to use our cancellation promo. Put down deposit and will use FCC towards that. Sailings are suppose to begin May 11th. We are trying to still celebrate B-day a week later with a May 17th booking. Prices have dropped. We'll see what happens with that.
