  1. No, they didn’t have to pay for it.
  2. If you cancel before final payment then I believe there’s a penalty like $50 a person. The rest of the money you would receive back in FCC. That’s if it’s before final payment that they cancel.
  3. When is the cruise? Is it after final payment ?
  4. Deleted- I think you are talking about a different questionnaire. My answer was in reference to the vaccine questionnaire.
  5. Parodeejay just did a b2b on the Horizon. They have a video of the experience if you want to check it out. If I remember correctly they had to meet somewhere, they walked them off the ship and into a waiting area where they had to get a covid test (they are vaccinated). Once the results came back they were allowed to reboard. They didn't have to pick a time for the second leg.
  6. Is it worth getting the UDP on Independence of the Seas for a 4 night cruise? What is a good price for a 4 night cruise?
  7. Oh my god! Smoking on balconies drive me crazy! I don't care about any of that other stuff but the smoking on the balconies 😡 . It makes my balcony that I paid for unusable. It has happened on two cruises and I wish I could figure out who was smoking I would have turned them in quick like and in a hurry. Rant over!!! Sorry, off topic.
  8. I get what you are saying. By using the "technique" they are getting slots that should be available to paying guests because those of us with the UDP are suppose to get the leftovers which is why we got the discount. You sound like you are a very honest person and should be commended for that. It is a rare trait in todays world. I hope you keep it.
  9. I was worried that they wouldn't enforce the rules, glad to see they are.
  10. No need- I saw the interviews, the conferences he held with the cruiselines and I believe the Mayor was involved too. But if an industry doesn't know they are in charge of something - of course they aren't going to do anything because they aren't aware they are suppose to. I think that it was terrible on her part that she didn't know what her agency was in charge of and it made her look incompetent. In saying that she was new to the job and was taking over in the middle of a pandemic. As long as we are finally cruising thats all that matters.
  11. I have heard this before that it was Desantis that got things moving. I actually believe it was that hearing the head of the CDC had and the Alaska Senator or whoever was questioning her about the ships and cruising. It looked like she had no idea they were in charge of the ships. Not to soon after that things started moving. I think the Desantis lawsuit was just a coincidence. That's just my opinion.
  12. I have been on different lines but love Carnival the most. I must because I keep coming back. I love the vibe on Carnival- the cd's are more involved and fun. But your question is "What would make me try a different line?" I guess for me we tried NCL because my parents wanted to try it. We did Disney because well, we love Disney and we thought the kids would enjoy it. We tried Royal because we heard so much about their entertainment and wanted to try it for ourselves. Each line has its positives and negatives but to me Carnival is my favorite because of its fun vi
  13. We are on the October 9th sailing. Can't wait!
