  1. No. The survival of a company or even an industry is not more important than my freedom of choice. I will not cruise if masks are required. My wife cannot wear a mask. She has panic attacks if anything gets too close to her face for any period of time. If masks are required to cruise, our vacation dollars will be spent doing something else.
  2. The cancellation letter should say that this offer supersedes any other offers. You cannot stack them.
  3. I'm just the opposite. Have gotten all the gift cards, and waiting on the credit card refunds.
  4. Our gift cards for Fun Store purchases for 3/29 cancelled cruise just came yesterday.
  5. If you read the fine print, it is not supposed to, but my PVP was able to do it, as have others. You won't be able to apply the FCC without calling Carnival anyway, so I would recommend calling the PVP line and getting one if you don't have one already. I would recommend mine, but board rules prohibit posting PVPs.
  6. I would go ahead and book if you are definitely going with the FCC/OBC option. As long as you have enough FCC to cover the deposit, you aren't going to have any more money tied up than you do now. We rolled over our 2 times cancelled cruise to add a B2B to our March 2021 cruise. But Carnival isn't getting another cent until they start operations again.
  7. If you are going to take the FCC, you won't be getting any gift cards back. If the new cruise is cheaper than the original, they can transfer up to $500 in OBC. If it is more than that, then you would get the balance back in gift card.
  8. You don't get to choose the form of your refund. It goes back to the same form you paid. So if you paid from cc and gift cards, you will get a refund of those amounts to your cc and a new gift card. You may or may not get it by August. I am still waiting on some of mine from our cancelled March cruise.
  9. Usually upgrades are listed as total cost.
  10. When I did it, I did not need a PIN. I just gave my PVP the other couple's name, room, and booking number, and he took care of it for us.
  11. I had my PVP do this. I don't think there is a way to do it yourself.
  12. Until last week Carnival planned to resume operations in April. They can and most likely will have another extension.
  13. As far as I know, there is no way to see it. You just tell them you want to use it when you rebook.
  14. Do you really think Carnival is just sitting on the refunds for 90 days to limit the negative cash flow? The have hundreds of thousands of bookings to refund. These things will take time. They are giving themselves 90 days to make sure they are processed by that time. Had Carnival not grandfathered in previous cancellations, you would be here complaining that you didn't get as much refund if you would have if you had waited.
