  1. Now, even more flexibility! Cruise with Confidence has been extended to allow cancellations up to 48-hours prior to sailing in exchange for a 100% Future Cruise Credit on sailings through April 2022 for bookings made on-or-before August 1, 2020!
  2. https://cancellation.royalcaribbean.com/?brand=R
  3. Why are you all quoting and referencing last month's dates/announcements? https://presscenter.rclcorporate.com/press-release/96/royal-caribbean-extends-global-suspension-of-cruising/
  4. It's something done just for the second wave of cancellations. It doesn't apply to the first wave. (You can confirm this simply by trying to fill out the form; you'll note sailing dates are limited to those in the time period of the second wave). It is also not applicable to those voluntarily canceling either under Cruise with Confidence or simply canceling under the original terms of the booking.
  5. I believe it's also been said his current contract ends this month anyway, so not so sure you can read too much into what RCCL is doing with him.
  6. I did go online 3/15 and requested the cash refund for this cruise. Still no email from RCL saying it was done. Don't know how long it will take. I'm pretty sure somewhere RCCL has stated refunds will take 30 days from the date they are requested. It's in the email RCCL sent out regarding the FCC or refund options... You can expect to receive your refund 30 days after you submit your request.
  7. Worst that happens is I have to rebook again.
  8. Was supposed to be boarding Anthem today for 2 consecutive 7-night cruises. I've already rebooked on Oasis 5/17/2020 and 5/24/2020. Figure that's a reasonable amount of time in advance for everyone to sort out things; we'll see if it happens. I've already got bookings on the 10/25 and 11/1/2020 Allure sailings, which aren't necessarily looking as likely to happen now, at least as the current itineraries are planned, and Anthem for 12/7/2020 and 1/4/2021. I'm kinda running out of slots in my schedule.
  9. Keep in mind almost no airline bankruptcy plan has dared eliminate frequent flyer miles accumulated for fear of how it would impact likelihood of those passengers returning to the airline.
  10. Between ships idled because some ports are shut to passengers entirely for an extended period, such as China, and all the other things happening, I doubt very much anybody is going to be able to give you any sense of a real answer for questions regarding when things restart and how itineraries will be adjusted/affected because of the 30-day pause of US sailings. Everyone really will just have to learn a little patience.
  11. At the moment the only indication is a press release on RCL's corporate site: https://presscenter.rclcorporate.com/press-release/82/royal-caribbean-announces-voluntary-suspension-of-cruising/
  12. On the other hand, if the ship doesn't get AMPed many people who booked things like Barcelona and the transatlantic back to the US, expecting the AMPed experience, may simply cancel.
  13. As mentioned earlier, you can now book a NextCruise through the app. It's not for a specific date, but you're purchasing a certificate good for a booking to be made within a year for a $200 deposit instead of the normal deposit. If you choose the date within 60 days, you also receive the NextCruise onboard credit offer applicable to the length/cabin of your sailing.
  14. What's strange is that any cruise line still sells internet service "minutes." It's like they think the dialup days are still with us. I don't "connect to the internet" on any of my devices; my devices are connected to the internet and generally interact with things constantly. 🙂
  15. As far as I know RCCL has already announced Glacier Bay is no longer happening on any sailing.
