  1. We had a cruise scheduled on the Escape last May that as cancelled & we got the latitude points and extra FCC from that one. We then scheduled on the Jewel in January this year and did not get any latitude points or addition FCC.
  2. I sent my renewal in Feb 24th. About March 15th was when all the Passport Employees went home. They started processing Passports again about he beginning of June. I got my replacement June 24th. At the time the employees went back to work, there were over a million passport renewal and original applications backed up. They were processed (by hand) first in, first out. So they might still be taking a little more time than they usually do. Sent from my iPad using Forums

  5. People who applied for a passport renewal in February had no idea that the pandemic was going to shut the whole country down and most travel would be suspended for the rest of the year.The last time I renewed my passport, 10 years ago, I was pleasantly surprised that it took less than a month to get it back. I don’t see that anybody applied for their renewal because they suddenly had a “desperate need” to get it in the middle of a pandemic, but rather due to travel plans in the future the they thought would actually happen, sent their information in to get the renewal processed. There might be
  6. I just saw that! Maybe soon! I got my information about emergency renewals from a Fed workforce website. There was an article a few weeks ago about the Passport agency. They can’t do work at home passports because of the security concerns Sent from my iPad using Forums

  8. I sent my stuff in for renewal and have documentation that they received it Feb 24. I don’t have my new passport yet. It’s a good thing my May cruise got cancelled I guess. Sent from my iPad using Forums

  10. I had seen several posts saying the Jewel cruises are cancelled until Feb, 2021. We were/are booked on a NZ cruise in January, 2021 and have not heard anything this week about cancellation and either has our travel agent. She is checking with NCL, but as of today, no response.

  11. Our cruise for May got cancelled yesterday. Today I contacted our TA and booked a cruise for Jan 2021. We HAVE to pay the $1500 deposit because the credit from the May cruise won’t be deposited into our account till probably Friday and it has to be paid to hold the cabin. In our case, the credit will pay for the cruise, so we will get the $1500 refunded Sent from my iPad using Forums
  12. When I went to a France from GB on the train a few years ago, they did not stamp my passport (or for that matter, fro US to Great Britian). Unless that changed not sure how they will know where in Europe you went. Sent from my iPad using Forums
