  1. That's why I took my full 100% refund right away. FCC is useless, unless you can actually use it.
  2. Explains why mine is just a suite now it was originally a "CC" all good with me though. Wondering now that it is considered a suite will I get a butler? Time will tell.
  3. This is why i took my money back! FCC is worthless.
  4. Totally Agree. I love cruising miss it dearly, but its way to early to start sailing again. Need people to take vaccine that will get this under control, than sailing can resume.
  5. That's why I got 100% back. FCC is useless unless you can actually use it. Not worth it.
  6. Definitely read current policy as others said its very dynamic and changing. I believe as others said currently they are giving 110% FCC now NOT the 125%. I just got my funds returned, cash is KING! FCC to much of a pain for 25%, 10% is even worse, and at the end of the day its just a piece of paper until you can use it. When can you use it, well hopefully soon.
  7. I'm happy I got all cash back from my cancellations, the hell with FCC, too damn complicated. You literally need a full-time job tracking it.
  8. Love the SPA also, but you would not catch me in SPA until there is a vaccine (reliable/safe) available.
  9. This is why I took 100% cash back, FCC's are nothing but trouble on a piece of paper.
  10. I agree with you, more capacity means cheaper cabin prices for the same voyage.
  11. I just got the last part of my AK cruise scheduled this past June, the reason it took so long ended up to be a problem on the CC company side, as NCL issued the refund way back in June. So always consult the CC company, in my case the specific charge was refunded to an old CC#, my card change numbers since than, same cc company just a new number.
  12. Definitely want to cruise again (and will eventually), for me there has to be a vaccine though, and I don't see myself wearing a mask all day on a cruise. So I guess I will have to wait. But for sure when cruising starts again masks will be required for the foreseeable future.
  13. Sailed this ship in a Forward Suite. While is considered a HAVEN suite it is separate from the Haven "PROPER" area. We actually dd a cabin crawl during this trip and had the chance to see a few different Haven suites. By far our group thought that the Forward Suites are the best bargain for the buck. They are huge, with a massive bathroom. You get a window out front and a balcony on the side (although this is a small balcony for sure but more than big enough for 2 people easily) You still get access to all the Haven proper areas. If you don't
  14. I'm with you here, my next cruise is Bermuda in June of 2021, even that one is not a definite, and i don't mind postponing if i must, but i need a working SAFE vaccine before i step on a cruise ship.
  15. Bird is spot on here, you had your choice. I took my cash back instead of FCC. FCC is a useless piece of paper until its used. 100% of 100% cash back is allot better than 125% of nothing!
  16. This is why i took my cash back FCC is useless piece of paper until you can "actually" use it.
  17. My mistake sorry, i looked at my pictures again, it was the Gem. My foot does not taste very good LOL.
  18. Its not possible for the Jewel to be there, i drove home from Florida last Wednesday 7/8/2020, i saw it parked at a shipyard in Jacksonville. None of the engines were running.
  19. I received our refund as well for the cancelled July AK trip, it took just over 60 days
  20. I would start a charge back on your CC card, if problems with that the next call should be to your states attorney general. Or even both in my case.
  21. Florida never closed down like we did up here in New England and NYC. They opened to early. Up here nothing was allowed to open until we could show that we had 14 consecutive days of declines, FL and TX and others did not do that. In my opinion that is why its exploding down there. Here in CT we are at phase 2, most everything open with exception of large events like concerts and sporting. We still have declining numbers, i believe we are below 200 people in the hosp. for covid-19 for the whole state now.
  22. As of now it matters not that the islands are opening, with a no-sail order in place no one is going anywhere.
  23. FCC is a worthless piece of paper until you actually use it. And that 20% stuff, yah they raised the prices so much that the extra 25% given with the FCC and the 20%off BS is just that...BS! IF cash, is important than i would take it! As one poster said 25% is a good return on the money but only if you actually use it on a cruise that does not have inflated prices.
  24. Definitely do not want any cruise line to fail. That being said, i'm not sure they can handle the cash burn rate, so for now i'll take my cash refund and see what happens. Hopefully all resumes and we can all start cruising again.
