  1. Hard to believe it’s been 6 years since our first Uniworld trip but back then it was Crown Plaza City Center. I’m sure it’s probably changed since then. We’ve done 3 pre cruise trips with Uniworld and all 3 were great hotels in great locations
  2. I cancelled a September cruise on March 28 that was paid in full. Was told at the time 10 days for a full refund less $75 each cancellation fee. Total refund expected was a little over 14k. Received my initial deposit back about a week ago. Received the balance of my full refund on the credit card yesterday. So about 30 days from cancellation to full refund.
  3. I posted this as recommended. Hope it helps others.
  4. Two weeks ago I made the difficult decision to cancel an Azamara cruise I had for September. I thought it might be a good idea to get in line for a refund as it seemed unlikely the cruise would go as planned and/or that my wife would be willing to cruise by then. Also cancelled a NCL cruise for January at the same time(got NCL refund in a week. Still waiting on Azamara) I digress. My concern was the 2 non cancelable business class tickets I had with American flying to Lisbon and back from Barcelona. I decided to wait awhile in the hopes American would cancel and give a refund. I

  6. These are the types of threads that make CC so valuable. I cancelled a Cruise a couple of weeks ago for September. I had non cancellable business class tickets flying into Lisbon and back from Barcelona. My thoughts were that I could get a voucher for a future trip and then hope things improve in the months to come and start over. Was just waiting to call till it got closer. After reading this thread this morning I went to American’s website and sure enough the Philly to Lisbon leg was cancelled. I immediately called American. Was shocked there was no wait. Rep checked and sure enough I was e
  7. I have been on the side of giving Azamara and the cruise industry a great deal of grace as we are going through unprecedented times. After weeks of struggling I decided a week ago Saturday to cancel my September Azamara cruise and a January NCL cruise. Both were paid in full and within the period of time for normal cancellation. Both said to expect the refund on my credit card in up to 10 days. NCL credited my credit card Saturday after 7 days. Today is the 10th day and nothing from Azamara. I felt 10 days was optimistic by both companies but was thrilled my NCL. I struggled when booking Azama
  8. As the OP I’ll clarify a couple of the questions and comments: #1. The cruise was January 2021 #2. It was paid in full for my own reasons #3. I cancelled under the normal provisions of the contract #4. It was a cash refund and credited to the credit card used to pay My only reason for posting was to say they actually are giving cash refunds to bring a bit of hope to those waiting or considering cancelling.
  9. There have been a number of threads/posts questioning whether NCL would be able to refund money on cancelled cruises with no revenue. Other’s emphatically saying bankruptcy is looming. All of that could happen but no one really has any idea what the future holds. But in this time of anxiety and uncertainty I thought I would post my experience. I had a cruise booked in a DOS for January on the Epic that I had paid in full for over 15k. After agonizing for weeks over the decision I decided a week ago yesterday to cancel both cruises I have booked and start over when things get back to some sens
  10. I cancelled a cruise I had booked for January a week ago. I had already paid in full. The full refund appeared on my credit card yesterday.
  11. Bonnie Thank you for the post. It was nice to read something positive during theses difficult days. Brian
  12. Thanks for the feedback. I’m sitting on a balcony at an all inclusive resort in Southern Jamaica looking out at the ocean and waiting for the butler to bring breakfast. And yet I’m sitting here thinking about my Epic/Haven cruise next year. What is it they say about what your favorite trip is? The next one! Ha
  13. Thank you again for the great feedback. We actually use the stairs a lot unless in a hurry. So all should be good.
  14. Thanks for the great responses from those who have experienced the Haven. The bad reviews don’t concern me as I’ve never had a bad trip. I don’t let something that I don’t like ruin my whole trip. But the bad reviews do help me think of questions to ask to avoid issues if possible or just accept them ahead of time if there’s no remedy. This is why I pick the cabin/Suites I choose. On my past trips I’ve found I can add certain features/perks, pick certain locations, and plan in a way that eliminates most of the negatives I read in reviews. Plus I accept th
  15. We will be on the Jan 31-Feb 7, 2021 sailing out of San Juan. We will be in a Haven DOS suite on deck 17. I’ve been reading threads and reviews of the Epic for months now. It seems to me that some of the most common complaints regarding the Epic will be less of an issue being in the DOS in the Haven. Especially the complaints about the bathroom layout, food quality(since we have the Haven restaurant), lack of views of ocean(have large balcony and access to Posh), lines(have concierge), etc.... So, I’m not too concerned about the negativity plus any cruise in the Caribbean in Jan/Fe
