  1. There are only 2 cruises showing for September at the moment, both out of Sydney
  2. The current cancellations (announced yesterday) don't come with a 20% discount, just 125% FCC or 100% refund
  3. At the time I booked, shortly after the Encore debuted, Bermuda was significantly more expensive than Canada which is why I chose Canada. I wanted to experience the ship. I didn't care about the port. I think I booked at around $1000 (cabin price only) for a studio and my current price, after drops, is $520.
  4. This is the letter that was sent to people on affected cruises. It somewhat explains the Alaska sailings that weren't cancelled
  5. My August booking is looking like a cancellation. It's saying I need to make a payment. So I think there will be an announcement tomorrow.
  6. As of right now, my Oct 20 cruise isn't showing up at all to be booked. My reservation was updated for Bermuda last night. How long does it take to change the cruise in the booking engine?
  7. I was kind of settled that I wouldn't be cruising in October. So not only am I cruising but it's going to be a completely different kind of cruise... Canada vs Bermuda.
  8. IMPORTANT INFORMATION ITINERARY CHANGE Reservation: 43979428 Date: 06/10/2020 Dear Valued Guests & Travel Partners: Norwegian Cruise Line has important information for you regarding Norwegian Encore's 5-day Canada sailing from New York, NY on October 20, 2020. Travel partners are asked to cascade this information to their impacted guests. As a result of our fleet's re-deployment, Norwegian Encore will no longer sail to Canada. However, we are excited to announce that due to updated port availability, the ship will now sail a 5-day Bermuda cruise, our most popular itinerary departing from New York. Please review the revised itinerary information below: Original Day Destination Arrive Depart Tue NEW YORK CITY, NY 4:00 pm Wed AT SEA Thu SAINT JOHN, BAY OF FUNDY, CANADA 7:00 am 4:00 pm Fri HALIFAX, CANADA 10:00 am 8:00 pm Sat AT SEA Sun NEW YORK CITY, NY 7:00 am Revised Day Destination Arrive Depart Tue NEW YORK CITY, NY 4:00 pm Wed AT SEA Thu ROYAL NAVAL DOCKYARD, BERMUDA 12:30 pm Overnight Fri ROYAL NAVAL DOCKYARD, BERMUDA 5:00 pm Sat AT SEA Sun NEW YORK CITY, NY 7:00 am All active reservations will be automatically updated.

This can be used for up to one-year from today's date and can be applied towards any of our currently published sailings beginning January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2022.

We sincerely appreciate your understanding and look forward to welcoming you aboard the beautiful Norwegian Encore for your vacation at sea! Sincerely, Katty Byrd Vice President, Guest Services
  9. Got an email today notifying me of the itinerary change. I was booked on a 5 day cruise to Canada out of NYC. It's now a 5 day cruise to Bermuda with an overnight! The email also said that I would be getting a 10% FCC. I'm pleased about the change considering my April Bermuda cruise was cancelled.
  10. This was the only disappointment I have experienced so far, cancelling my spa pass. I was so looking forward to the thalassotherapy pool on my Magic cruise.
  11. I think if you are really and truly going to be disappointed (you will really be crushed and not just saying it), then I would plan something with more certainty if you really and truly need a vacation, any vacation, and not specifically a cruise. I had an April cruise canceled and was more relieved than anything to have that decision to go/not go taken from me. I also have August, September, October and December cruises booked. These, I am more certain that I would take if they sail but I'm expecting all but the December cruises to be cancelled and I'm fine with that. I'll start 2021 with hella PTO available.
  12. Does that come out of your time or are you able to use COVID related leave? My employer doesn't have any restrictions but I would be able to self quarantine upon my return without tapping into any of my personal leave if I chose to.
  13. I was able to pick and choose how I allocated my FCC and whether it came from the 100% or the 25% portion once I waited for the credits to hit my account. I spread those amounts across 4 cruises. I paid 2 in full and put deposits on 2. The only thing I wasn't able to do was use the 25% portion to pay a deposit but I could use money from the 100% portion.
  14. I'm not going to be that disappointed. Until I see emails about the CDC lifting the no sail order and cruise lines publicly announcing approved health and safety plans and approved itineraries, and getting their crew back in service and trained, I don't expect any of my booked cruises will happen. But the money has been allocated and the vacation time approved. So I remain hopeful.
  15. I'm with you there, especially when del Rio said he's looking at late 3rd quarter at the earliest. I still remain hopeful (though I haven't purchased a plane ticket yet). I also have a September cruise on Carnival, October on NCL, and December on RCL. Hopefully 1 of those will sail! I've given up trying to guess but I will root for all the optimists 😄
