  1. Ok did a quick comparison.  Early Saver, RU9, RU2

    I already have a 7 day cruise booked for May 2021, I included trip insurance and gratuities, booking same class Ocean View room.  

    With my VIFP# Early Saver Rate is 2310.00 ( currently booked )

    Using my RU9 rate: 3212.00

    Using my wifes RU2 rate: 2632.00


    It looks like the RU9 for me is not a good deal, I would be better off buying cheers as an add on.

    It looks like my wifes RU2 rate would be pretty much a buy one Cheers get one free.  Not bad.


    Just what I came up with.  It would appear that if you have the RU9 rate, you can do better without it.




  2. I have watched this thread and it is interesting.  We canceled our cruise on 3/12.  I did it on the phone and took meticulous notes.  I was told we would see a refund for excursions and prepurchases in 3 days and a refund for the cruise in 7-10 days.  We did get the excursion refund and that is all so far.  I had a FCC from another cruise that the moved to a May 2021 cruise and they even called me the next day to let me know it was done.  So moving from 7-10 days to 90 is disappointing.  

  3. This may get answered when I click the link in my email from Carnival about my canceled cruise.  Unfortunately my March 28 cruise was canceled which leaves me with the two options.  I already have a cruise booked to Alaska for 2021.  I am wondering if I can just take the FCC from the cancellation and apply it to the 2021 Alaska cruise.  Otherwise I guess I could just get a refund, but that would make me lose my on board credit from the cancellation, or I guess I could book another cruise. I would really just like to apply it to 2021 and then I can shop for a cruise to fill the void in between.





  4. I have an upcoming cruise on the Valor in about 30 days. They have sent me 4 upgrade offers, all of which were the same.  $10.00 to upgrade to a spa Balcony.  We didnt take it, but that seemed like a decent deal.  We have a Balcony already on the 7th and travelling with friends who are just down the hall.  



  5. We had a similar experience on the Elation in Sept 2019.  We were provided with OBC and a 50% refund of the cruise fare ( towards another cruise ).  We did go to Nassau for an overnight.  The ship was having a propulsion issue and could not get over 9-10 knots.  It was not the trip we were looking for, but we had a great time.


    Overall condition of the Elation was nice, I would not consider it a rust bucket by any means.


    It is something that can happen that is out of our control, but you just have to roll with it.  Of course I have no idea if this is the same issue that occurred in Sept.  


    Hate to hear you were disappointed, hopefully your next cruise will exceed all of your expectations.

  6. How about we get the security detail to just throw one or two people overboard each cruise and see if that doesnt get people to do right on that cruise and I am sure word would spread so on future cruises it may not happen as often.


    Well I guess we have to decide what is right.  Would that be social norms?  Todays social norms?  Or past social norms?  How about we just say industry standard?  Well per this forum there seems to be different standards per cruise line, so not sure that would work.  Maybe they could add safe spaces and rooms with puppies, and stuffed animals, but then we would have sanitary issues.  But that might be ok for some folks and offend others.  


    This is a tough one. 

  7. Sailed out of Port Canaveral in September.  2 of the couples with us placed a bottle of liquor in each checked bag. Did not conceal them in rum runners or anything else. Just put them in the luggage.  All of the liquor made it through security.  Not saying that will happen every time, but it leads me to believe the the "secuirty" is random.  One of the couples cruises a few times a year, she said she has never had an issue.  

  8. I dont really have a pic of the room, but the location was excellent.  If it helps the layout is where the bathroom will be on your left when you enter, with the closet, and desk on your right. The head of the bed was on the right wall.  We felt the location of the room was great and easily could get anywhere in a very short time.  We did hear something rolling around one morning ( the galley is above you ) but we were up and it lasted for about 20 seconds, so no big deal.  I also felt like the room was quite roomy, and the window was great.


    I should note we had the room set up as one bed.  If you have it set up as two, I am not sure how they would do the layout.


    Hope you have a great trip.
