  1. We would like to transfer a December booking from Celebrity to Royal. Is this doable? We booked on board about a year ago (Independence), I think that gives me refundable deposit/free transfer, but I'm not 100%. Any advice is appreciated!
  2. There's the answer, thank you! FYI, I don't for a minute believe in the 'goodwill' of major corporations. Previous to this situation, they would have little to no mercy with a cancellation and would happily sell the cabin you just vacated while keeping your money. I enjoy the product, for sure, but caveat emptor.
  3. A bit off the other FCC topics. We are currently booked on an early April cruise. The price has gone way down. We don't really care about an upgraded room, being on the ship anywhere is fine. I do have another cruise we're looking at in December. Would it be feasible to cancel now, use some of the FCC to rebook, and put the rest towards December? Welcome any thoughts.
  4. Indy - Star lounge, starboard side, that's the door you want. Looks like maybe you shouldn't use, but we did several times no problem.
  5. We are sailing on Navigator in April. I used the Cruise Planner to make Main Dining Room reservations, but there was no way to indicate that we are happy to be seated with others. It's just the better half and myself, so we think we'd enjoy a larger table for dinner. I figure I can stop by the dining room when we board, but not sure if that's the best way. Any advice on this?
  6. How about mocktails? I gotta guess they're a little cheaper? I've done some searching, hard to find the virgin prices.
  7. Didn't figure on money back, was hoping for some on board credit. I will keep an eye out for the upgrade possibility!
  8. Should have been more patient! I booked at 349 a person after it bumped up from 319. The next day, and still is, went down to 299. I called my big box travel agent, who called Royal Caribbean, and they did absolutely nothing. I'm still happy to be cruising, but I'll need some time to sooth my purchasing guilt.
  9. Oh, the guaranteed cabins are a good point. Maybe a little more pressure now...
  10. I wouldn't argue with 50 pppd. That's would be a pretty darn good deal IMHO.
  11. I am looking at several Caribbean cruises for early April. We got cheap airfare on a whim and now figure that with current cruise prices we'll break even (if not better) cruising versus renting a car, place to stay, food, etc. I have several that fit my window, and I've been watching them go down steadily for a bit now. There are 2 Royal Caribbean cruises that are 1 and 2 on my list, and they just dropped this weekend by a fair bit, they're now in the 300's, for guarantee cabin, total is 8-900. It's worth mentioning there are Carnival and NCL cruises that also fit my needs. The cruise that's number 1 on my list has around 90 inside rooms and almost 40 Oceanview cabins still available, a bit over a month out. Should I keep waiting? We just got into the cruising game last year on Independence last year, so I'm not really sure how the pricing goes. I've got options, so I'm not feeling pressure, but I just wonder if there's a point where they just won't go cheaper. Looking forward to the opinions and experience of everyone! And cruising, definitely looking forward to cruising.
  12. Thanks for the info, appreciate the help!
  13. We have cruised on HAL and are looking at a Spring Break Carnival cruise. Does status we've earned on HAL transfer to Carnival? I know that RCI and Celebrity recognize each other, wondering how the Carnival companies do it. Did some searching, but didn't find a clear answer. Thanks!
