  1. Not a betting man but, returning to the originally posted question: hope for start up by January 2021 because I'm booked. Or, by February 2021 because I'm booked. Or, at least by March 2021, because I'm booked!
  2. Booked with HAL for 1/21 and X for 2/21 and 3/21. First final payment is 10/6/20. By then I certainly hope HAL and X can tell me what to expect onboard, if the cruises actually take place. If not, it will be deposit refunds.
  3. Well, you can continue to wait and undoubtedly will receive your refund eventually! Had a similar problem with a cancelled cruise. After 45 days I was told that it might indeed be another 60 days for the refund to appear on my credit card. Filed a dispute with CapitalOne and had my full refund, with NO conditions, in 24 hours. The choice is yours.
  4. No. Had them pay off little balance due on account and had them send me a check for the remaining balance - CapitalOne.
  5. Yes TA gets commission regardless and should be able to get information for you if he/she is willing to call and be on hold forever. Our TA worked repeatedly at clarification as to when we'd receive refund and was finally told, another 90 days!! Filed dispute with our credit card company and had full refunds within 24 hrs!!
  6. I suspect you will be very pleased with Celebrity. Have cruised with: HAL, X, RCCL, NCL, Princess, CCL, Viking Ocean and Windstar. Can honesty say I've never been on a "bad" cruise including NCL and CCL. However, after my first cruise on the Celebrity Equinox (my favorite X vessel) I was hooked. I still cruise with other lines but always seem to come back to Celebrity. You will too, most likely. Enjoy!
  7. Interesting. I filed via the phone with CapitalOne and received credit within 24 hrs, Was also given choice of either using up the credit as I used the credit card or a check for the credited amount. I used some to pay off current credit card charges and a check for the remaining amount.
  8. And, if HAL goes bankrupt and/or out of business (hopefully neither) we currently have our full refunds.
  9. HAL cancelled the cruise. Our TA received a different answer each time she called with regards to refund for cruise and air fare. I called after 45 days and was told it could be another 60-90 days for refund or longer. Contacted my credit card company - FULL refund received on my credit card in 24 hours. Was offered either to simply use the credit up over time or they would send me a check for the credited amount.
  10. Would indeed be fun. Did the Society Island cruise out of Tahiti on the Windstar Spirit. When anchored in lagoons, we could swim, snorkel, kayak, and even water ski behind zodiac watercraft, launched by the crew, right off the back of the ship. Highly recommend Windstar. Oh, and on this sailing ship the total number of passengers was 148!
  11. If the ships actually sail: 12/2020, 02/2021, 03/2021.
  12. We likewise had to cancel two private tours we had booked for our June Alaskan cruise. We notified both companies. Both assured us that we would not be charged their 10% cancellation fee and our credit card was credited by both companies within 4 days. I assured both companies that we will rebook with them in 2021. We have also received our full cruise fare and air refund one day after filing a dispute with our credit card company. I was planning on waiting on HAL until I simply called to make sure our cancellation had been received, after NO communication from HAL after 40 days, and was told it MIGHT BE another 90 days for our refund.
  13. Excellent point! Even when a vaccine is developed and available, there are plenty of people, unfortunately, that don't believe in vaccines. There is currently a strong come back of measles in this country for that very reason and immigration here.
  14. Congrats on your money saving score! Checked our 2/20 cruise and price is up pp. Checked our 3/08 cruise and the price is $1100 higher pp !
