  1. It would not surprise me in the least, and we would probably deserve to be banned. I hope it is that people will start taking precautions seriously here until there is a vaccine protocol. Fingers crossed.
  2. Update: they have moved us to a “handicapped accessible” cabin. I do not like to take up space in case someone needs it, but at this point the guy at Hurtigruten states that all available handicapped accessible cabins are available. I inquired about the likelihood of being bumped from the cabin if someone needs it and he says it’s extremely unlikely due to it being an excursion trip, so no ferry people. We have agreed, though only in theory, that we would be bumped to a mini suite if this would happen. we have accepted this as a good alternative. The accessible cabin is 16m2. Fingers crossed that, as US residents, we will be able to travel to Norway in February.
  3. We are scheduled for the Magic of the Arctic Winter on 13 February. We were in an Arctic Superior QJ Category of the Otto Sverdrup, 17 m2. Cabin number 630. We have been assigned an Arctic a superior P2 Category on the Trollfjord, 10m2, cabin number 646.
  4. I happened to sign into our bookings account with Hurtigruten.com this morning to discover that we are going to be sailing on the MS Trollfjord instead of the revamped MS Otto Sverdrup. Today is the first day that we have been able to access our account online for several months. Our Arctic superior cabin has gone from 17 m2 to 10-11 m2. I cannot stay in a cabin that small. We made careful consideration before we booked this And the QJ category was both well sized and affordable for us. I know that some think that the cabin doesn’t matter because you spend most of your time outside, and im sure we will be spending most of our time outdoors or in the public areas, But for me, I cannot stay in small spaces. I’m surprised that Hurtigruten didn’t contact us. We booked with Hurtigruten USA after they price match the Hurtigruten Norway site for us. Not sure what to do, I will call them on Monday to discuss but in the meantime, we will probably have to cancel because of this. i’m very disappointed, although I do understand that they can only sail what ever ship they have ready, but to cut someone’s cabin size in half and not even mention to them that they are on a different ship with a different cabin size is crazy.
  5. Our May booking was cancelled. 125% FCC rebooked the Sun for October. This was also cancelled. since we were in the deposit phase, they are refunding everyone to their original payment method. No FCC talked about at all. The original 25% is still showing on our account.
  6. My Husband and I were given this offer due to our 29 March cruise cancelling. We rebooked for October 2020 🤞 and each received the 20% off. When you do a mock booking make sure to add the 2nd guest info. If they are entitled to a discount they will get it.
  7. Thanks for the spirited discussion. I now feel confident that my husband and I can have a relaxing cruise without looking quite like the Beverly hillbillies.
  8. I am well and truly worn out from Coronavirus talk. Our 29 March NCL cruise cancelled and we need something to look forward to, so this is it. My husband is reluctant to go on a “dress up” cruise, so this news about the specialty restaurants is great! We can just go there on formal nights. thanks!
  9. Hi Princess cruisers, my husband and I are looking at a Mexican Riviera cruise on Princess. We have only been on NCL which is very casual. For the main dining room and specialty restaurants is smart casual appropriate? Do shorts work anywhere? We understand there are 2 formal nights. Will we be able to eat in the main dining room if we are not in formal attire, and if not, are there options other than the buffet? thanks for your help, LinnieRed
  10. Thanks! Does everyone +21 in the cabin have to purchase it? Or can just 1 of us.
  11. Yes I did. I’m not having any luck finding a dining package or a per night drink package amount.
  12. Hello, my husband and I are seeking a cruise to replace the NCL 29 March that just got cancelled. I’m looking at Carnival since we will be in S California in October and the 7 night Mexican Riviera would work. Beyond a few “booze cruises” we’ve taken on Carnival back in the early 2000’s we are Carnival neophytes (a bunch on NCL though) and hoping for some answers. How much is the drinks package? Is there an upgraded dining package one can pre purchase? What else is there that anyone recommends that would add cost to our trip? Thanks! We’ve had to cancel 2 trips due to Covid-19 and badly need something to look forward to.
  13. Getaway NOLA on the 29th here. We will be on the ship unless it’s cancelled. Let it be known to all cruising with me that I am a sneezer. I sneeze year round, into my elbow, as politely as possible. I am not a virus carrier. 😂
  14. So as an aside from this conversation, does anybody have any concrete knowledge of who to contact to get off of the snail mail list?
  15. Wow! I just checked the cruise we booked for the 29th. It was a last minute booking 3 weeks ago. The prices have more than doubled in the balcony and spa category ( not sure about ocean view or inside) and the mini suite and Haven are sold out!
