  1. Cruise line stocks rally after CDC said to allow mid-summer cruise restart Apr. 06, 2021 4:40 PM ETCarnival Corporation & Plc (CCL)By: Clark Schultz, SA News Editor Cruise line stocks are higher in after-hours trading after the CDC is reported to have said that cruises can start back up the middle part of this summer with restrictions. The details aren't in yet but the headline is enough to prompt some buying action from investors. Yesterday, reports indicated that cruise companies do not need to mandate vaccines in or

  3. I see your point of view and the headline was not meant to be deceiving. NCL has said they are planning on starting in July with only vaccinated passengers from US ports but I did not hear where they would start.
  4. Got this from Seeking Alpha: Carnival Corp (CCL +1.7%) says the suspension of all operations from U.S. ports has been extended through June 30 as expected. "We know that this is very disappointing to our guests who continue to be eager to sail, and we remain committed to working with the Administration and the CDC to find a workable solution that best serves the interest of public health," says President Christine Duffy. "While we have not made plans to move Carnival Cruise Line ships outside of our U.S. homeports, we may have no choice but to do so in order to resume our ope
  5. Carnival is scrapping 19 ships (I believe 4 have yet to be named). That's a bunch of CD's, assistant CD's and other assorted crew members that are going to need jobs somewhere. At least it sounds like she has landed on her feet.
  6. Pfizer going for emergency approval by end of month. Good part of study is that while it is reported as 90% effective (flu shots are 50% approx), actual data on covid patients in study was higher than 90%. It will be awhile before enough doses are available to population, but we are looking to cruise soon.
  7. The report is 40 plus pages long, so it was in the works for awhile. The fact that it was releases on a day when the US had a daily infected number of 90,000 is reflective of the year 2020. We don't have control of this yet. Good luck to those who choose to cruise. I am in a "high risk demographic", I will wait awhile. As a CCL shareholder and someone who enjoys a nice relaxing vacation, I wish the cruise lines well.
  8. Someone is going to call Carnival, whether it is you or your T/A that depends on how you book. To use the FCC, you must first book a new cruise and pay the deposit. This can be done online if you so choose. Then the FCC is applied to your cruise but only after contacting Carnival and having the FCC applied to your new booking. If you use a T/A, they can do this for you. In these days of technology, it seems somewhat archaic. Speaking of talking with Carnival agents, while I received my refund quickly (I also chose the FCC), if you have an OBC based on a price drop filing, do t
  9. When I first started this thread/conversation, it was only six ships across the corporation. Times change quickly and now the number is 13. We have seen HAL announce 4 ships leaving the fleet. I think I saw 2 from princess leaving 7 ships from Carnival and the rest of the fleet. I saw the Fantasy was going to scrap, that leaves 6 left and I have not included the P&O and Costa brands. Most people are assuming the the Fantasy class ships will go. If that is Carnival's direction, look to the Imagination , Ectasy and Elation as candidates for retirement not so much for age but
  10. I noticed the same thing this morning when checking on my October 18 cruise on the Glory. All 7 day cruises out of NOLA are not listed.
  11. I just saw an article saying Carnival will be taking six (6) ships out of service. Have they announced which ships will be gone? All Fantasy class? When? Any info would be appreciated.
  12. The article I read was 820 people in Florida and 500 in California and Washington (Seattle). I think the 1300 number was an overall number. Sad but if your business is essentially shut down you cannot afford the people. I follow Carnival because I hold some stock (yeah ouch). It does seem that prior to this, Carnival had increased the number of people hired particularly at the executive level. Maybe some at the top trimming is healthy long term. Sorry for the PVP's and others who got caught up in the virus mess. Next time some politician says the cruise industry sh
  13. I don't really know the logic behind why I got it now but "when you get the answer you want, hang up" (Brad Pitt in the movie Moneyball).
  14. Original cruise date was for 5/3/2020 (I should have been cruising this week), the refund was generated when I changed cruises to a 10/18/2020 new date. I changed this on 3/12.
  15. My original cruise was for 5/3/2020 (yes, I should be having drinks with umbrellas in them at this moment), a 7 day out of New Orleans. When I cancelled, I rebooked for 10/18/2020. I did this change on March 12.
