  1. It may take time for there to be doses for everyone and the first doses would go to those at high risk of death and 1st responders I would think. So when/if cruising resumes it might not be feasible to require everyone to have a vaccine if there aren't enough doeses yet.
  2. Ok sign me up! After all this quarantine eating, I need a weight loss cruise.
  3. So you are saying occupancy will be worse than 9/11? Thats what I would imagine because those who are not afraid of the virus will be afraid for their jobs. If you're unemployed you're less likely to cruise. If you are employed, you don't want to risk losing your job if the trip ends in a 14 day quarantine. I think cruise lines have an incentive to make sure things go well to avoid bad press. But this could also make them try to hide illness or engage in some other type of cover-up to avoid making headlines. Of course coverups are always eventually uncovered and make headlines anyway.
  4. Update: So, I did receive the refund of my $750 deposit today. Looks like lots of people got their refunds today. Glad I didn't need to do a dispute. Ordinarily, I wouldn't be anxious about a refund but in the case I was afraid they would go bankrupt and I would not get it. Glad this is over.
  5. This is probably a question for another thread, but why did they let everyone board to begin with?
  6. I think @derfp is saying that what was signed on the ship does not contain these terms. I would think that what derfp signed overrides the policy on the website unless what derfp signed said refer to website x for full terms and conditions.
  7. I'm glad you shared this experience. So many defend Royal and cruise lines by saying you should have read the terms. In this case they are changing the terms. The terms said that the $200 was non needfor. They want to change it now and claim its $500. Do you still have a copy if what you originally signed?
  8. I am waiting for a refund of a deposit from Royal that us refundanle and no where near the penalty phase. So no reason it has to be manual. They are just slow tracking it.
  9. Have not received money. Just checked my credit card. I will give it until the end of the week. Then , I will dispute.
  10. I decided to call one more time before initiating the CC dispute. I was told last week that teh funds has been posted on 4/11. Today I was told that the funds were posted on 4/11 and released to the bank on 4/19. So I learned that posting and releasing are not the same. She also told me that the funds would come back as 2 payments and she told me the amount of each payment. So I am hopeful that I really will get my money. This is not from a canceled cruised. I put down a deposit on a Sep cruise and I have decided to cancel. IFF cruises are happening in September, I am sure there will be plenty of cabins and I can jump on board and pay a few weeks before sailing. At this point I am not willing to have Royal hold my money. When cruises do resume I will book something close to sailing.
  11. Yes, she took the cruise and also received FCC because of several complaints. Despite this, she still filed a CC dispute.
  12. Thats a good point. She was likely banned for trying to commit fraud rather than for filing a dispute.
  13. I am waiting for the return of a deposit. Thats probably just one bucket. Still haven't seen a refund.
