  1. In the tidal wave of everything going on around us I totally understand how everyone is negative & questioning everything - since these forums allow us to throw in our two cents here's mine: The global economy was booming but stopped in its tracks by Corona. Yes - it will get worse before it gets better but our scientific community will figure this out. We'll get back to work... business will boom again ....the banks will continue to keep their big customers floating (cruise lines) ... and as noted above we will all be cruising again. I bought more NCL stock today ... to go with the purchases I bought last week and week before. NCL is not going out of business. I could be wrong but that's my two cents - I sure hope for all of us that I am right!
  2. Good man.... I have confidence the US/world will pull through this .... the markets will wobble in short term but those that put their money down now will be handsomely rewarded in the long term. I've made several purchases of NCL snd RCL in the last few days....bought more in the red slide today.....
  3. ..well....I recently placed my bet that NCL will get back to good health. While the stock bounced nicely today it'll be back down and up a few more gut wrenching times for sure ... if I'm right NCl will be paying me to take several years of future Haven cruising.... I figure this is my small way of helping them get back on they feet so the they are less reluctant to cancel this years alaska cruise season = they will give me back my (June cruise) Haven cash...... Win-Win
  4. I"ll 2nd that. While I find the thread interesting with some well-considered comments.....here's where my mind is : waiting for NCL to cancel the Alaska cruises thru July 1 so that I can get my Haven cash back purchase a decent NCL stock position (very soon) - a pile of money to be made here for longs. rebook Alaska for 2021 or 2022 start planning for a cruise to Antartica
  5. Agreed with above... not many options available to you. However... This "suggestion" is based on the possibility (likelihood) that NCL will soon have to cancel all Alaska cruises departing before July because Canada has closed all ports until then. (All NCL Alaska cruises must stop in Canada) Sooo... on the premise above, perhaps you could use your NCL credit to rebook a cruise departing before July. When NCL cancels you can get your money. Caveat... I have no idea if this would work... there may be NCL rules that prevent this from happening... just thinking out of the box.
  6. We're on the Jewel - June 1 from Seward to Vancouver. Same story ... planned 16 months ago... a group of us. With Canadian ports closing until July 1, I'm expecting all the Alaska cruises (due to PVSA ) to be cancelled until July 1. I'm totally bummed about this ...the only good news is that if NCL cancels they will have to offer a full refund. Our plan is to rebook for same time next year.
  7. .... not to be picky but I believe it is the PVSA Act and not the Jones Act that is important here. For foreign flagged ships (NCL)...Alaskan (USA) passenger 1 way trips must include a foreign port. Assuming the news reported earlier in this thread is accurate, I'm thinking NCL will have no choice but to cancel their Alaskan cruises through July. We are on one in June ... I'd rather have my money back that a credit (crossing fingers on this news)
  8. we are on the jewel in june - seward to vancouver. while i woke up feeling positive about this ... our group started cancelling ... as of now all have cancelled except us 😞 .
  9. Every policy is different so the only way to know (for sure) is to read yours carefully. There are a number of threads on this board - concensus is that unless you paid the premium for CFAR insurance (cancel for any reason) , you are not likely to be successful.
  10. Cruise is in June. Is there any benefit to check-in early and/or prepay service charges?
  11. Wow - too funny!! We're looking forward to the Haven for Alaska in June. Perhaps another way to look at Haven is to book it for Alaska first ... then every other Haven cruise following will "feel" like a great deal 🙂
  12. should i be worried if the docking time listed in the attached link is different than the cruise ship itinerary.... OR is this link a "draft" ?
  13. too funny .......thanks for the response. We have the 2-bedroom for Alaska ... our college aged girls will be joining us as well (we're paying 🙂.) This is our first time cruising in years - the last time time was with Disney ... stopped in Bahama's and spent the day at Atlantis (nice place)!. Congrat's on med school - that is long educational journey - I bet she's exhausted. I'm digging the $20k/6 math..totally agree that it's a no brainer for say 3 close couples to have a blast in the Caribbean.. the 3-bdrm is a massive space .. both indoors and outdoors. I'm sure you will have a blast.
  14. Georgia: You caught my attention with $20k for the 3- bDRM. Just curious what your destination is ? (Guessing it is not Alaska... when i was checking rooms for our Alaska cruise the 3bdrm Haven started at $16k each)
