  1. I tried to message you but you don't have it turned on. Steve
  2. Seaview 3/12/2022. Over a year away. I saw what you posted regarding occupation of a cabin, but mine only holds 2 people therefor I would be safe. If we read it differently, the next question would be why is it advisable or necessary to move me now over a year away. Defeats the book now to lock in the best rates and best cabin mantra. There is a Yacht club grand Suite available to transfer me to. 🙂 We will see on Monday what happens. Steve
  3. They cancelled my Yacht club and put me in a regular Balcony without my permission. Got an email confirmation that my cruise was booked at 5.45pm yesterday. Next email is at 6.15pm canceling my Yacht club. All have same booking number???? I booked Yacht club last July direct with MSC for an inside. Now I am on the same cruise (b2b) with the same booking number but in a regular Balcony cabin for only $500 less in a Bella category no less. I always get the booze package. So if I added booze it would cost me $900 more than what I had. I called
  4. You got slighly taken....maybe. I have used it for b2b2b2b. I actually have one coming and already applied points. Keep in mind if you combine them, yes you get the upgrade for all for the same points but the cruise is treated as 1. So what ever perks you would get for each cruise, you only get 1. Use only 1 Future cruise cert, you get 1 shareholder benefit, and 1 of each perk based on your status. So free 100 minutes of internet perk is all you get whether on a single cruise, a b2b, b2b2b, ect. Same with a dining package, if it comes with 3 meals perk, that all you get for all
  5. Mine is February........ IMPORTANT NOTICE: CANCELED UPCOMING MSC FANTASIA SAILING January 14, 2021 Dear Guest, We want to make you aware of a change to your upcoming cruise on MSC Fantasia. As the world continues to face challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, MSC Cruises has been working with authorities in the Gulf region to review our operational proposal and comprehensive health and safety protocol that has proven effective in Europe and supported the restart of MSC Cruises’ operations in the Mediterranean since the middle of August. Unfortunatel
  6. Just got the email that the Fantasia has been cancelled. Darn lost another cruise. Ours was a UAE for 2/4/2021 STeve
  7. It would make sense to keep things as usual. You don't want to mess with a loyal customer base. Whether they would honor all that FCC is another question? Now the FCC.....why don't they put an expiration of 10 years on it? This spreads out the free money, this does not make people to hurry up and use it and allows cash paying customers to fill cabins instead of free passengers. My assumption would be they jacked the prices to offset the extra 25% but the higher fares are moot if everyone is using FCC. What good is sailing ships that you are not earning anything on. Steve
  8. My money is on MSC. I am a huge NCL fan and user but I doubt they can survive on their own if this drags on for several more months. Like you said, MSC is an unknown financially but I bet they are cash fat and to acquire part or all would give them the a bigger share of the industry. IMHO opinion they are the only ones still making money with their shipping company and they actually has cruise ships sailing in Europe. Steve
  9. So true😊 But our seniors always get taken advantage of and it offers them some protection. Steve
  10. That's illegal in FL. Steve Here is state law...... (2)1(a) A gift certificate purchased or credit memo issued in this state may not have an expiration date, expiration period, or any type of post sale charge or fee imposed on the gift certificate or credit memo, including, but not limited to, service charges, dormancy fees, account maintenance fees, or cash-out fees.
  11. Actually you are correct, she has two $1000 gift cards. We would not claim it was stolen, but no longer in possession of the card as after it was used and applied, it was tossed. As far as the 5 years expiration date, which would have been 5 years for her next month, there is another law on the books her in Florida that states they "never" expire. She is a FL resident. Yet they sold it to a FL resident from their FL headquarters but still has an expiry date? That is why I wonder if FCC can have an expiration date? Here is the FL law..... https://www.flsenat
  12. I will tell her to say she lost the card. Its $2000 so its not chump change. Thanks Steve
  13. Thanks She has the card. What about the fact it expires next month? Its been almost 5 years. Steve
  14. Daughter used a gift card for a cruise this April. I doubt the cruise will happen. Paid 80% with gift card, 20% with a check mailed into NCL. How will they refund it? The current card would have expired next month I called NCL and got 2 different answers. Back to original form of payment. I would assume new Gift card with new expiration and a check? Was paid with a physical card originally not an ecertificate. FCC. Which she don't want Anyone had this experience that can shed some light on it? Steve
  15. Call another countries office and take names and keep a record. I would probably record the phone call as well. Steve
  16. Hi WYB, When you the upgrade you should have 1 booking number, so in theory there is only 1 segment, so you need to price out all 3 and add them up. If 1 segment goes down in price, another may go up or visa versa. I reprice all the time but its always the total of all segments under the single booking number. I also want to caution you that sometimes the NCL system will reprice higher than the total you may get when you add all segments up. Sometimes its a little other times its been a $400 difference, but when I am double meta from an inside to a balcony the price savings is $300
  17. I do it all the time. Not just b2b but b2b2b2b. I currently have 2 b2b's and 1 b2b2b2b all with one booking number and 60,000 point double meta upgrades applied. STeve
  18. Start from the beginning. Get both cruises in highest inside category with 1 booking number, then call back and make sure you are speaking to a World points rep. STeve
  19. First question....do you have 1 or 2 booking numbers? When you go on "myncl" do you show 1 cruise or two cruises? Yes your TA may be able to link them but it may cost them commission. If they give you any grief, cancel it!!!! Then rebook direct with NCL with 1 booking number, then call back and talk to world points and get your double meta upgrade. Now if you want you have 30 days to give the new reservation to the TA with a form you can print online. If the TA is not giving you anything back, then don't use them. It seems when ever I use a TA, they are concerned ab
  20. HI Steve, I have 8 booked with NCL and I hope I keep the extra points. I will be half way to Ambassador status and that free cruise. I have Africa booked again for November 2021. I hope it sails. Steve
  21. I just checked and all my extra 88 points are still there.😁 Steve
  22. If you did not cancel you would have gotten the points. What many did not realize is that when they started cancelling cruises, you can get a refund or fcc, but .....you still got points for not sailing. Steve
  23. I think they canceled all US sailing thru 12/31 of this year. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23804-msc-hits-pause-in-the-united-states-through-dec-31.html
  24. They did that to me as well on a 45 night NZ cruise this coming February. But..... I was also given the 20% on a 36 night Africa for 11/2021. I still have the 25% bonus as I did not apply it yet. I booked 11 cruises total and used the 50% deposit promo. They canceled NZ so 4 gone and refund of deposit. Steve
  25. It was actually a repo cruise NZ,NZ to Australia, to French Polynesia and then to Hawaii on the Jewel. Steve.
