  1. We have B2B cruises in January. There is no way we will be on either. If I can roll over our FCD's to 2022 we may do that. From a personal note you do not want to be anywhere near a hospital these days.
  2. I am beginning to think our January 2021 cruise is a long shot. My wife has been after me to cancel it but I think Princess will end up cancelling it.
  3. I got the e-mail yesterday but when I looked at a couple of cruises today for January 2022 they were all shown as sold out.
  4. It may be cold but that is better than being in a Florida hospital with co-vid.
  5. Thanks for the info but I am not sure it is enough to entice me, given what is going on in some of the Southern States.
  6. Almost Finished. Cruise - April 18 Cancelled - March 11 (and again on March 12) Cancellation Notice - May 18 FCD’s - on or about May 18 Refund - May 25 (dated May 21) FCC’s - June 1 April 25 Cruise Cancelled - March 11 (and again on March 12) FCD’s - Rec’d June 9 FCC’s - June 17 Refund - June 17 (dated June 12) Unfortunately they did not refund my FCDs. I have now started that process. I hope it does not take another 3 months
  7. We have a cruise on Jan. 17,2021. I doubt we will be on it. if you listen carefully to some of the experts there "may" be a vaccine by January but the are talking about using it on an "exception" basis, if needed.
  8. Definitely an improvement, but not enough for me. At my age and health conditions 60 days is a long time and FCCs would likely prove useless.
  9. You could make a lot of money in the FX market by taking a contrary position to Princess.
  10. I checked my January booking this morning and it is now priced at 1.40.
  11. No. I believe they offered me an additional 25% in FCC's (i.e. in addition to the original 25% in FCC's )
  12. Cruise - April 18 Cancelled - March 11 (and again on March 12) Cancellation Notice - May 18 FCD’s - on or about May 18 Refund - May 25 (dated May 21) FCC’s - June 1 April 25 Cruise - rec’d an e-mail on May 5 offering additional FCC if I switched to Option 1 (I did not). I had to May 31 to accept this offer so nothing on it.
  13. We have a cruise booked for January but I doubt I will make final payment, there are just too many issues to be resolved. - not sure I want to get on a plane - no way to social distance on a cruise - no vaccine, and even if there is not be enough time to vaccinate every one - will any of the islands let us dock - don't want to end up quarantined on the ship for 2 weeks - etc.
  14. Update on my refunds. I had two cruises (B2B), one on April 18 and one on April 25. I cancelled both late on the evening March 11 (great timing on my part). I resubmitted both the next day under the March 12 Pause. I rec’d an e-mail on the April 25 cruise on May 5 offering me additional FCC if I switched to Option 1 (I did not). I had to May 31 to accept this offer and I suspect that is why I have not seen anything else on this cruise. As I had not rec’d the same e-mail on the other cruise I called Princess on May 7 and was told I should be getting a refund
  15. Your 5 to 7 day cruise would probably turn into a 19 to 21 day cruise with you quarantined in your cabin for the last two weeks.
