  1. Too bad it doesn't work like that. I wish it did.
  2. Ugh that stinks for you! I wish all this would go away so I can start making plans again. Mom really wants to go but it's just too much stress playing the guessing game. I know they aren't transferable but if they were, I would give you mine!
  3. As a Platinum, I got the offer. I'm not planning on booking anymore cruises since the last 2 were canceled until I know how all this is going to pan out. If I could give my offer to someone who wants to actually cruise, I would.
  4. I had the Radiance booked for Oct and it was canceled. I took the OBC offer and moved it to the Breeze in December. We know what happened to that one 😡. I decided to forgo cruising for now due to the uncertainty of all the mess that's going on. I was given a full refund of all monies paid including the additional deposit, Cheers, Cruise Cash, my Villa at HMC, and our Spa passes. As a matter of fact, I just received a refund of $2 on my CC today from Carnival. No idea what that was all about being everything else was refunded last month. I didn't have to jump through any hoops. One call to my P
  5. I'm not booking any cruises until I know what the rules are going to be. I would wear one getting on the ship and off in the terminal, but not every day on the ship, going outside, etc. I also would NEVER book a cruise where it meant having to only take a ship sponsored excursion. I am smart enough to know where I'm going and leave plenty of time to get back to the ship so missing it is never an issue for me. Sometimes I like to wander around the shops at the port and head back, others I visit certain private establishments that are more enjoyable IMHO than where they send the masses.
  6. I did call my PVP about the cruise and then he called me the day the PC Breeze cruises opened up. He said it would be over $400 more for our cabin vs the one on the Breeze out of PE and my sister couldn't get her free inside cabin because that casino promotion wasn't running any more. So if my mom and I went, my sister and SIL couldn't. The only thing I didn't call about was my Fun Shops purchases. So that put a real sour taste in my mouth. To be honest, it made me a little angry that they would treat their customers like that. Especially seeing the difference in how Celebrity handled it.
  7. Our October Radiance cruise got canceled so we rescheduled for the Breeze out of Ft Lauderdale in December. As I'm sure most everybody knows, they canceled and moved the Breeze to Port Canaveral to take over the Radiance's cruises. Upon hearing this, I contacted my PVP and as soon as they opened the ship back up, we looked into switching to that port. They wanted over $400 more for the same type of cabin. After mulling it over, we decided it wasn't worth the headache to switch airfare and all that especially for more money and still have to worry if the cruise would actually happen. Plus we ha
  8. Heading to Cozumel next month. I'm not confident in our December cruise so mom and I are going to go somewhere while we can. Really looking forward to it. We love it there!
  9. If our December cruise is still a go and they want us to wear face coverings, we're out. I don't wear them at work and I won't wear them on vacation. It's too dang hot in the Caribbean and due to health conditions, it isn't an option for my mom or I. She actually has a Drs note saying it's contraindicated and I suppose I could get one too, but if it's going to be more of a hassle having to explain it every time a crew member or passenger says something, then it's honestly not worth that kind of stress.
  10. Our October Radiance cruise got cancelled so we rebooked on Breeze in December, had to pay $198 deposit in addition to the $500 we had previously put down. Got Cheers and a few hundred bucks a piece in Cruise Cash when they were both 20% off, and rebooked a Villa in HMC. Not sure if the credit posted yet for the one we had cancelled in October, but no biggie. Oh, and we also got the Spa pass. Mom thinks she'll like the thalassotherapy pool and I think I will too. Neither one of us are concerned that Carnival will go bankrupt.
  11. That's my birthday so I hope it's true! Now who do I have to talk to about getting a free cruise? And don't say firemanbob 'cuz I don't think he's feeling that generous lol!
  12. The 6th floor on Conquest Class ships can be a gamble if you need it quiet to sleep. Make sure you look what is directly under your cabin. The Disco, Piano Bar, casino stage where the band plays, etc are all on 5 and sound and vibration is heard/felt one deck up. I've passed up free "upgrades" because to me they weren't worth it.
  13. On the Conquest Class ships, if there is a quad cabin (not including suites), the 3rd bed is the actual top of the sofa and the 4th bed drops down from the ceiling above the sofa. My mom had a cabin on Glory where the bed folded up against the wall behind the sofa. It was still up and out of the way. That was the only cabin in all my cruises on the Conquest Class ships that I had seen that and I never would have believed it unless I saw it with my own eyes. But wither way, if it's not in use you won't even notice it's there.
  14. Lol! Yes we do. How about the Breeze December 13?! Pretty sure things will be up and running by then. And if not, I'll take some more OBC!
  15. Have to admit I "fell" for the $600 OBC for my canceled Radiance cruise and since I just booked yesterday, I expect the numbers will tick higher once people decide what cruise they want to replace their canceled ones with. Decided to get Cheers although after my Vista cruise I didn't think I would do it again. But what the heck - at 20% off I couldn't resist. Saves me from having to lug on some sodas and I plan to use the OBC in the casino. Mom and I are going on the Breeze in December now. Excited to try a Cove Balcony. You know me, I'm fine with an inside, but they have always peeked my inte
