  1. I cancelled our May Journeys cruise that I had paid for using mainly gift cards on March 11th (give or take a day) and used my PVP for the process. I was shocked at how quickly I received the gift cards, totaling around $1,700.00 - within the week! I was also sent a gift card for one of the excursions at the same time, but I’m still waiting on reimbursement for the steakhouse, WiFi pkg and a room order. Not sure when those will arrive........
  2. I’m booked on the September 3-7 cruise on Sunrise out of NY and I can still access excursions, gifts, etc.
  3. Do you have anyone close to you who works in the health care field? My daughter and son-in-law are RN’s. Both are telling us it’s bad and will get worse, and are very concerned. My son-in-law told us yesterday he had to intubate a 9 yr. old........
  4. Thanks so much for that - but bummer!! I cancelled and rebooked on March 11th! I’m sure things will change, though, as time goes on. Thanks again!
  5. I have a cruise booked out of NY Sept. 3-7, a replacement for our 9-day Journeys cruise that is supposed to be in May that I cancelled. To date, I have not gotten a single email from Carnival for any of the notices they’ve sent out (I’ve also checked “Junk” folder routinely). I used my PVP to cancel & rebook, but it was only through this forum and another that I know what Carnival is doing....... Could someone please paste the notice you received about cruises through September? I’d like to know what my options are - I looked at the website, but didn’t see anything there. Thanks!
  6. I lost all my OBC when I rebooked yesterday.......
  7. So I just got off the phone with a very helpful Carnival PVP and here’s how it goes: Whatever your original non-refundable deposit was, plus whatever penalty amount you might have incurred depending on how far out you are from your cruise becomes a future cruise credit. You can see what your penalty amount is by looking at your booking online - go to “Cruise Balance Details” then “Cancellation Information” at the bottom, and there you will see your current penalty amount. Here’s the penalty schedule from their website: From the final payment date to 56 days prior to sailing, the penalty is the standard deposit amount. From 55 days prior to sailing to 30 days prior to sailing, the penalty is 50% of the total fare or the standard deposit amount, whichever is greater. From 29 to15 days prior to sailing, the penalty is 75% of the total fare or the standard deposit amount, whichever is greater. From 14 days prior to sailing to the day of your cruise, the penalty is 100%* of the total fare. No refunds will be made if you do not show up for your cruise or if you interrupt or cancelyour vacation once it has begun. The balance of what you paid already, minus the penalty amount, should be refunded to you in whatever form you paid with originally - credit card, gift cards, etc.. At least that’s how it was explained to me! And oh - we had received a future cruise credit as a gift on our present cruise because our Mardi Gras cruise was cancelled by Carnival a few months back. That would also carry forward as a future cruise credit if we wished to rebook (which we will not be doing, unfortunately). Hope this helps explain how your money will be reimbursed..........
  8. Thanks to all for replying.......I was afraid that was the reality! We do have another cruise with Carnival already planned for September, 2021, so we could just apply the refunded gift cards to that cruise if we need to cancel. But the point raised about Carnival giving the opportunity to reschedule the May cruise so the insurance may not cover is something I hadn’t considered.......I only like to sail out of NY because we can drive to the port, so that really limits the cruises available going forward. Having never cancelled a cruise before, I never even considered how using gift cards could impact a refund - thanks you guys for the info!
  9. We’re scheduled to cruise in May and I basically paid off my whole cruise using Allstate Carnival Gift Cards. We still hope to cruise and did purchase “cancel for any reason” insurance when we first booked - but I am immune compromised, so we’re not sure how all this will play out. My question: If Carnival cancels our cruise (or for that matter, if I cancel through our insurance), will we be reimbursed with gift cards instead of cash? $2,500.00 worth? Thanks all!
  10. Ahhhhh, gotcha!!! Thank you.......
  11. We’re on the Legend Journey‘s Cruise in May and didn’t see any day passes for sale under “Spa” category.......does anyone know, are they not available for that cruise, or just sold out? Thanks!!
  12. Thanks so much! I’ve been using the Allstate app that has Drivewise on it to check my rewards, but using your first link got me where I needed to go and opened the right page. I guess Ill be using that now instead. Thanks again!!
  13. Thanks, have no idea why this is happening!
  14. Still having a hard time accessing Rewards page to look at gift cards - is anyone else having these issues? Page still says, “Page not found”.......
  15. I’ve had a hard time getting to the rewards page all morning; it keeps coming up with the message “page not found”. Frustrating, as I don’t won’t to lose the opportunity to buy one more card when the new stock comes out ......(although judging by how many are vying for them, this seems like a losing battle 🤨)
