  1. When my Feb 28th cruise cancelled on December 3rd it was the fourth time. So, I finally gave up trying to guess about re-booking and requested a refund. Cancelled on Dec. 4th and my refund was in my bank account on December 8th! I was shocked because I truly expected it to take 60-90 days. I wonder if my great PVP was the reason. I want to cruise again as they have been the most-relaxing vacations I have ever taken, but will wait until I can book as close to a "sure-cruise" as possible. I am tried of count downs of "250 days to your next cruise", so I am not looking to schedule one in
  2. Well, I am replying to my own post from the 1st. I just received an email from Carnival cancelling my end of Feb cruise. I am usually a very positive and upbeat person, but now I guess I need to take off my Pollyanna Pants, wash them, fold them neatly and . . . . then burn them!! Not sure what I will do now. I keep rolling the same FCC and $600 OBG to each new reservation and right now I just don't have it in me to reschedule. Sad thing is that I have a fully-paid cruise that I can't seem to enjoy. I know everyone else is in the same boat (sorry!). So, I guess I'll take a breather t
  3. This is giving me a glimmer of hope. I know, I am wearing my "Pollyanna pants", but when my end of February 2021 cruise was cancelled on November 18th, I immediately rebooked on the Horizon. Crossing my fingers that she will be one of the first to sail and keeping them crossed that it will be sooner, rather than later. But, if not, I'll call my PVP (who is wonderful!) to rebook again. And, until I hear otherwise, I intend to keep wearing my "Pollyanna pants". 😉 Take care everyone.
  4. Bgcruising, I know no one can say for sure, but I do believe there are a lot of people wishing and hoping the same thing!
  5. Thank you, both, for the welcome and comments. Bury me, you said it plain and simple. I know I am not alone in missing cruising and believe the companies know that, but not so sure about the "powers that be". Yes, it's when I make comments like the "English Channel" one that my adult kids rolls their eyes like they were teenagers again. Joel817, crossing my fingers that we all get to cruise the first of the year. I told my DD I wasn't sure what I would do if my early March 2021 cancels, but I know I would simply contact my super PVP, rebook another one - hopefully
  6. I am fairly new to cruising and sure wish I had discovered it earlier in my life. I am quite envious when I read other cruisers' comments about cruising since 1965 or even 1985! My 2nd cruise was to the Western Caribbean in early February of this year when the discussion of the COVID-19 was in the early stages. I thoroughly enjoyed that cruise, as well as my first cruise which was in late January/early February 2019, and found them both to be the most-relaxing vacations I have ever had. So, I decided cruising was going to be my "get away vacations" each year with plans to cruise 2x a y
  7. Thank you for the encouragement CP Mom, I really appreciate it. I was amazed how quickly I fell in love with cruising and sure wish I had found it earlier. I joked with my daughter, who is the one that got me hooked on cruising, that if the Feb/March 2021 cruise cancels, I may have to attempt to swim the English Channel just to get rescued by some type of boat or ship! I am generally a "Pollyanna" by nature, so looking forward to cruising as soon as possible. Thanks, again, for the words of support and encouragement.
  8. I sure hope I cruise in late February, 2021. When my late September/early October cruise cancelled, I was disappointed and rebooked for late February/early March, 2021. I told my daughter that if this one cancels to expect me to pout like a 14/15 yo teenage girl for the rest of the year! LOL! If it does cancel, I am not sure what I plan to do as far as a new-booking is concerned. I really miss cruising and I am a very new cruiser. I hate to think what seasoned cruisers are feeling about the lapse in cruises. Take care everyone and be safe.
  9. I like the idea of having the candy store on board as I may under-estimate my need for chocolate while on the cruise and brought too little with me. Y'all can have your Cheers packages, I'd gladly pay for a Chocolate-All-Day-Long package! HaHa.
  10. Thank you, JohninDC. I appreciate the welcome and good luck wishes. Great info and topics here. Take care.
  11. This is the very reason why I search CC. Based on many suggestions for hotels near the POM, these reviews and pics for the DoubleTree Biscayne helped me make my decision. I just booked our room with a bay view for a September, 2020, cruise. Thanks to all who contributed to the OP's question as they were all very helpful. Take care and happy future cruising.
  12. I purchased FTTF in mid-March for a September, 2020, cruise and it still shows on my excursions listings on page 2. However, it shows as "sold out". It is my understanding that FTTF usually shows up on page 2 of excursions, but mine was offered as a "Recommended for You" on my Cruise Manager tab. So, I would look both places. HTH.
  13. This is my first post since I joined and started reading CC forums, so please forgive me if I am too-wordy about FTTF. I have a September cruise scheduled (crossing my fingers) on Magic. This is my third cruise and looking forward to cruising several times a year, depending on work and family obligations. With my second cruise, I was able to purchase FTTF, so I had been planning and was hoping to do the same for this Sept cruise. I purchased this cruise in very early March and kept looking periodically for the FTTF and actually missed it twice (yes, twice). Now, this is the confusing par
