  1. We are booked on the April 2021 Papeete to San Francisco cruise. Waiting to see how long it takes for Oceania to cancel it.
  2. Thanks for the information. I just downloaded the entire document.
  3. Cancelled a cruise on March 19th. CC was refunded this morning.
  4. I only filed a dispute on the refund amount. If I don't get the FCC I will file against my cancel for any reason insurance or dispute the charges with the credit card company.
  5. Today is my 61st day since cancelling. I called HAL and spoke with a very nice rep. She confirmed that they had my cancellation but she could not tell me when I would be reimbursed or when I would receive FCC. She said they were working from home and doing the refunds and FCC by hand. Needless to say, a refund might be months in the future, or never, so I disputed charges with the CC company today.
  6. The level of stupidity never surprises me. I would have like to be at the checkpoint when the found the car on the tow truck with the people hidden in it.
  7. Hello, I live on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is a very popular tourist site and the vast minority of the people here during the spring/summer season are full time residents. There are only four ways onto our island; two bridges, driving down the beach from Virginia in a 4 wheel drive vehicle, and by boat. A couple of weeks ago, the county government closed all accesses to all but full time residents. This is to save the very limited medical support for locals. As soon as this happened, some "corvi-idiots" tried innovative ways to beat the rules and bring visitors/tourists to the area. They tried smuggling people in car trunks, smuggling them in by boat, and even putting a car on a tow truck to smuggle people in. We have very few cases, predominately from folks who tested before coming down before the restricted entry rules. People here seem to be following the stay at home rules and the supermarkets are pretty well stocked minus the usuals; toilet paper and hand sanitizer. I still can't figure out how massive amounts of hoarded toilet paper stops the virus. Good luck to everyone and thanks to all the medical personnel and first responders.
  8. Definitely get the aft corner suite. We had one on the Reflection recently and it was the best suite we have ever had.
  9. We are also going on this cruise. Two from Virginia and two from NYC.
  10. It is a shame that some tourists going to Machu Picchu have no sense of history. We visited in 1973 on our own and were the only ones there. No guides, no security. We were able to roam around freely and left the site as pristine as we found it. We haven't been back since and with the new restrictions we won't go back. P.S. I have great photos with no tourists in the background.
  11. I have used the Travel Insurance through USAA for many years. The company they use is Travel Insured International. You get a slightly cheaper rate booking through the USAA website. The rates are very competitive and the service is absolutely outstanding. We have had to make claims a for different reasons. Once when an airline went on strike and one when we cancelled a cruise the day before departure due to emergency surgery. They paid 100% of submitted bills without hesitation. Great company with very professional employees.
  12. I vote for Uniworld also. We were with them on the Nile November 2018 and it was absolutely outstanding. Great staff, super Egyptologist, unbelievable vacation.
  13. We we were on the Reflection Amsterdam to Barcelona cruise a few weeks ago. The ship was in great shape and the crew was super. It was one of our best cruises ever.
