  1. We also love the coves and book them every chance we get. This was the first time we had any issue with one. They did try and compensate us by giving us 30% off a future cruise. That was a nice gesture but did not really make up for not having a balcony as we spend lots of time there (we social distanced before it became popular). The ship was full and they could not move us to another cabin. We have 2277 booked on the Vista in June, 2022, hopefully it will not have any issues.
  2. This is from their FAQ page: Frequently Asked Questions (ncl.com) Looks like you'll be OK!
  3. I live in Florida and feel perfectly safe going out and about. I don't know what you are seeing on TV, but if it is the Miami Spring Breakers, that is definitely not the norm. We went out to dinner and shopping yesterday and everyone is wearing masks and following social distancing and acting like responsible humans. We are headed to Daytona Beach next week to meet up with family and enjoy some Florida sunshine. I think our uptick in cases is from all the families moving here from the northeast bringing the virus along with them! We are both seniors (68 & 75) and are fully vaccinated
  4. We finally got our refunds after 375 days of MSC aggravation. MSC refused the chargeback, so our credit card company refunded the money back to us as they agreed we had a valid claim. We are finished now with this horrible company. Good luck to you all.
  5. Tired of people bashing Florida! I don't think your stats are correct, but not going to argue about it. I do know that over 70% of seniors in Florida have been vaccinated and our state is doing quite well. No one is forcing anyone to come to Florida. As far as the spring breakers, they are not following the Covid protocol. South Beach had to impose curfews to try and keep them under control. As far as exporting the disease to other states, that responsibility is on the vacationers. Don't come to Florida without following our social distancing and just common sense rules and then c
  6. I just posted it because someone said they google searched and could not find anything about a motorcyclist's death being reported as Covid. It was only removed because the family brought it to the attention of the press that the cause of death was an accident, not Covid. Just makes you wonder how many other deaths have been incorrectly reported as Covid.
  7. Florida COVID-19 fatalities data included man who died in motorcycle accident (beckershospitalreview.com)
  8. During the 2019 flu season from Sept. 29 to Dec. 28, the CDC reported more than 65,000 cases of influenza nationwide. During the same period this flu season, the agency reported 1,016 cases. Health experts said that high vaccination rates against the flu – combined with social distancing, mask-wearing and hand-washing employed to stop the spread of the coronavirus – played a huge role in preventing influenza transmission." I find it a little strange that the CDC tells us the flu is under control because we are wearing masks, social distancing and hand-washing, yet Covid 19 is
  9. We had several cabins on our family cruise on the Escape. Everyone with 4 in the cabin had the sofa by the closet. The cabins with 2 or 3 people had sofa by balcony. These were all BA cabins. If you pretend to book a cabin, the room details will tell you if the bed is near the balcony or closet. Recommended 10910 10908 10906 10904 10902 10900 10898 10892 10884 10882 10880
  10. It's my understanding that if you canceled in March, 2020 and are unable to use the FCC by December, 2021 your money will be automatically refunded to you. I've already been waiting for 12 months, guess I can wait another 9. I will not be stepping onto another MSC ship.
  11. Yep, that's how they operate! A year later and we are still waiting for the rest of our refund. They already refunded taxes and fees and our initial deposit, but have still not refunded the rest of the final payment. Never again will they get a penny of our money!
  12. Our last cruise was on the Escape, an extended family cruise with 5 kids ages 8 - 18. They all had a great time and loved the ship. They spent a lot of time on the ropes course. They also enjoyed the kids clubs. I wouldn't hesitate to sail with the grandkids again on the Escape.
  13. Good luck getting the other 25%. When they messed up the amount of our FCC, I was told they could not correct it, but would refund the difference to my credit card. Of course, that never happened. On a side note, our original deposit was just refunded back to our credit card, but MSC has declined the credit card request for the final balance. Seems strange they would approve the refund for the deposit, but not final payment. Just another customer service blunder. The credit card company is still working on it. Almost a year now!
  14. Agree their ships are gorgeous and pricing is good, but that does not compensate for the horrendous customer service. We really enjoyed our 4 cruises with MSC, but will never step on another MSC ship. We have 2 other issues, besides the lack of refunds 11 months after they canceled our cruise, that have still not been resolved. They keep promising and escalating but nothing is ever corrected, emails are not answered and talking to their worthless customer service representatives accomplish nothing. Three strikes and you are out MSC!
