  1. I understand early saver rates offer the ability to price match any other packages that might be offered later. When booking a cruise, is an early saver rate the best way to ensure you get the best deal? I saw in another thread that price matching doesn’t remove the early saver status, so you can match a different rate again later if one comes available. So even if there is a better offer available when booking, it would be best to book the early saver rate and then price match the other rate? Are there any tips & tricks for using early saver, or just getting the best value booking in general?
  2. Wow, I didn't realize this was a problem. I've only been on one cruise previously, and I don't remember particularly long lines to check in, but we may have had a later timeslot. I signed up for the earliest available, 10:30am, on my cruise this weekend, now I'm wondering if I should have that changed?
  3. They must have a pretty good reason to be pushing people away from the casino. I wonder if they have found it to be nexus when contact tracing of those who have been infected recently?
  4. No, it was comparing people who were fully vaccinated more than 6 months ago people who had covid more than 6 months ago people who had BOTH contracted covid more than 6 months ago AND received at least 1 dose of vaccine more than 7 days ago. #3 seemed to have significantly stronger resistances. It does seem wrong though that they included more recently vaccinated people in group 3, I wonder how they accounted for that?

  6. Has Jamaica announced when they will start accepting ships? I just booked a Sunrise September cruise today and wonder if I should count on Ocho Rios or not.
  7. I literally just booked a September cruise with a stop at Grand Cayman, and popped into this forum to start researching the port. I guess I'll have to wait and see what Carnival decides to do instead.
  8. Thanks! After about 20 minutes on hold I decided just to book it online and try calling later. Of course, just as the final booking confirmation page loaded, someone answered the phone. I explained the situation, and they said they would transfer me to someone else to take care of it. After another 30+ minutes on hold I gave up. Unfortunately, it looks like while I was on the phone the rep added travel insurance to my new booking, which I did not request. And of course I can't remove it online because it's too close to the cruise date, so now I either have to pay the $98 or try to call again and hope I can get through to someone who can fix it. 😞 Grr.
  9. I see in some other threads that it can be applied retroactively to a cruise that's already booked, so I'll go ahead and book now and hope that carnival will fix it for me after. I also see that OBC can apply to gratuities... is it possible to wait until boarding and then add the pre-paid gratuity option using OBC, or will I just have to let it apply towards the regular calculated gratuity?
  10. My September cruise was cancelled yesterday, and I'd like to book an alternate. Will I get and be able to use the future cruise credit right away, or will I have to pay out of pocket for another cruise because the FCC will take weeks or months to apply?
  11. Oh, and here’s the cancellation list from my email.

  12. My September cruise was just canceled. This was to be my second cruise, and is the first time I’ve had one canceled. Looking at the deal they are offering to take credit over a refund, it doesn’t seem all that great, unless I’m missing something. Is the “FCC “ just credit for the amount I paid towards a future cruise purchase? And $300 OBC sounds good, but we were booked on a $200 OBC promo, so it feels like we’re only getting $100 extra. I guess, or I hope at least, that the $300 OBC would stack with any promo offered on a future cruise? I think the OBC is limited though as to what it can be used for, so there’s probably a limit to how much would be useful. And, I guess I get to contact American to find out what my options are for my tickets … grr
  13. It's sad to see the Jeopardy category selection style now, with the recent news that Alex isn't doing well and likely won't be able to continue hosting much longer.
