  1. When you call ask to be transferred to the Resolutions Department. They helped me with a cancellation for full refund and a transfer of funds to an existing booking.
  2. I have already booked two excursions for my May 8, 2021 cruise. I have had two cruises cancelled and have received all my refunds. I have rebooked excursions twice and they were refunded in a timely manor when the cruise was cancelled. I did have to wait awhile for the refunded portion of our April 4th cruise fair. I booked a cabana at Mahogany Bay, they only have 8 and now there is only one left, and the shark and ray excursion in Belize. In Cozumel we charted a private boat and have been able to transfer the deposit so will stick with that, hopefully by May you don’t have to do a Carnival excursion. I also transferred my 20% off Cheers package before the last cancellation was completed. I am very hopeful this one will finally be a go without severe restrictions, mask required almost everywhere but your cabin would be too severe, I think we could deal with the other requirements. I am not in the least bit worried about bankruptcy and not getting my money back. I even got a full refund for my TravelSafe insurance and will wait to repurchase until I am sure it’s going to sail. Eventually we will be cruising again, can’t wait!
  3. No, I was credited $600 OBC for my cabin that was transferred three times and hopefully the May cruise will be a go. The $600 OBC for my daughter’s cabin was lost because I cancelled and got a full refund.
  4. That I don’t know but Carnival has been very accommodating to me. I had an additional cabin booked for my daughter’s family, the original April cruise was for her 40th birthday. I rescheduled to July and then to March 2021. Last month they decided to bail so I cancelled the March cruise and was able to get a full refund for the extra cabin in addition to getting my FCC and OBC transferred to our May cruise. I did initially have a problem when I cancelled through a PVP but called the 800# who transferred me to the Resolutions Department. That rep was great and took care of the transfer and refunds. Also, I had purchased the Cheers package during the 20% off Sale and was able to transfer it to the May cruise through the Fun Shop but I needed to call and transfer it before the cancellation.
  5. No, when the cruise you rescheduled to also get cancelled you don’t get an additional OBC credit. I ended up cancelling the last reschedule for 3/27/21 myself and was able to move the FCC and OBC to the May cruise.
  6. You can apply your FCC and $600 OBC to an existing booking. I rescheduled twice to new bookings for my cancelled April cruise and then applied the FCC and $600 OBC to a May 2021 cruise I booked a year ago.
  7. I had a similar problem but it was resolved through the resolutions department. We were originally booked on the Vista 4/4, rescheduled to the Vista 7/25 which was also cancelled. I rescheduled again to 3/27/21 but my daughter’s family decided they don’t want to cruise until at least 2022 so I cancelled their cabin through a PVP last month. He said I would get a full refund but the FCC carried over from the cancelled cruises and deposit were not refunded. The PVP was non responsive so I called the 800# and they transferred me to the resolutions department. The agent that helped me was very knowledgeable, tracked down where the funds came from and refunded the rest of the money I had paid. It took less than two weeks to post to my credit card. You should still be able to get a full refund and if you don’t call and ask to speak to the resolutions department, it worked for me, good luck!
  8. The 3 day weekend Sailabration cruise is available March 4, 2022 and Is very reasonably priced. I’ll be on the Panorama, looking forward to the meet up! I am very excited about the Radiance coming to Long Beach, plan to be aboard at least once a year.
  9. When you call Carnival again, ask to speak to someone in the Resolution Department. They would have the most power to give you the $600 OBC from the first cancelled cruise which I think is fair. When I called today about a cancellation that got screwed up they transferred me to the Resolution Department to get it straightened out. Like yours, the cruise was a double reschedule from April 4th to July 25th to March 27th. I had two cabins booked and my daughter’s family decided they don’t want to cruise for the foreseeable future. They were able to refund all payments for their cabin back to my CC, including the FCC generated from the first cancelled cruise and the non refundable deposit for the March cruise. They also cancelled my cabin and moved the FCC and $600 OBC to an existing booking I have for May 8, 2021. I had already called the Fun Shops to move the Cheers package I purchased during the 20% off sale to the May cruise. It’s worth a shot and I think it would be a smart move by Carnival to encourage you to rebook rather than request a refund. Good luck!
  10. I totally understand that and I think I would feel the same way. I didn’t realize you were booked on the cruise, it makes total sense to hope it’s cancelled to get a full refund, good luck! And I now see you are the OP, I need to pay more attention, sorry!
  11. I originally rescheduled our cancelled Easter Week family cruise on the Vista to July 25 and then again to March 27, 2021. The kids have now all bailed so the March cruise is a no go. I was happy to get a refund for the kids cabin and move our funds and $600 OBC to the Vista in May, a cruise I booked almost a year ago for our 45th anniversary. I was also able to transfer the Cheers package I bought when it was 20% off from the March to the May cruise. I am very happy with the way this all worked out. I used the kid’s refund to book a lake house in the High Sierras for the whole family next summer, something everyone is comfortable with and looking forward to. I am super excited about our anniversary cruise, I have a Havana Vista Wrap booked which should be perfect if there are are any mitigation measures due to the virus and worst case, we get quarantined onboard which I highly doubt would happen. So if the ship sails we will be on board and I give us a 90% chance of success and have the data to back it up! 😜 If we don’t make it I have the same cabin booked for November 8, 2021, I will not give up!
  12. Thanks for the heads up! I couldn’t find it, then checked “Recommended for you” and there it was, just booked it for both cabins for our Easter Week Cruise. I did notice it went up $20 from $89 to $109, not 100 % sure it is worth it but I have $1800 sitting on my Carnival CC from refunds and will decide before final payment if I want to keep it. I would have totally missed it so thanks again for posting!
  13. I knew there would be at least one, it’s satire, relax and laugh at yourself, it’s good for the soul and I highly recommend it.
