  1. Perhaps a glimmer of hope, or a great TA and Seabourn relationship. We have, today, just received notification that our bookings of tours with Seabourn for the August 1, Barcelona to Monte Carlo, have been processed for full refund. "Quote: Thank you for choosing Seabourn. Cancellation of your cruise reservation has resulted in the cancellation and refund for the following purchases" List all our tours plus prices paid via our respective credit cards. This result was after only a six week wait, not too bad. We await confirmation of our actual cruise costs, t
  2. https://thepointsguy.com/guide/canceled-cruise-refund-how-long/ Perhaps this take might shed some light on the total cruise industry dilemma, not just Seabourn. Hope you receive your refund within the anticipated time frame.
  3. Perhaps I should have clarified that we are, like so many other cruisers, subject to a waiting period for our refund, and a sizeable one at that, hence the reason for my post. However, that, IMHO, is of a secondary nature given the current dilemma throughout the world with this virus. Your reference that this forum is only about our refunds is somewhat redundant, as the base subject goes off on many tangents, from publications about the fortunes of not only Carnival, the parent company to other worldly cruise lines and their rational. We have all, possibly, been advised by our TA's
  4. Thank you, in this day and age one can become inundated with requests for membership fees. Long gone are the days when one could peruse any and all daily newspapers.😂😂
  5. OK, I need to have a rant. This is all about money. Yes, we all have made some form of investment in a company which, I can only assume, we have all benefited from in the past with fantastic service, exemplary employees, first class POC's and tours. And so, we find not only ourselves, but the whole cruise industry in distress. When will we get our refunds or FCC, that is the hue and cry from all within this Forum. What is the average out of pocket expense we have invested with our cruises in peril, $10K - $30K? What is the average age of fellow cruisers, 70 plus maybe, say 90%. Gi
  6. You are a great source of marketing for the WSJ, subscription required, I think not.
  7. Our TA advised they are looking at 8 - 12 weeks. On average 10.
  8. Our cruise was in the second window, August 1 - August 12 Barcelona to Monte Carlo. Having paid our deposit, and booked a number of tours we decided to cancel through our TA. Had we waited until April 4 they would have imposed a 15% cancellation fee of the gross amount of the cruise. However, we do have an excellent TA who immediately contacted SB to cancel. Received notification from Seabourn of our cancellation with no cancellation charges by them. We could not see this cruise being a go and didn't want to be on the hook for the balance due plus the inherent delay time in getting a refund, p
  9. An excellent response to an awful dilemma, and that is just in the Seattle area. One has to keep this in mind instead of bleating about how the lack of responses are from the Seabourn employees. We are all safe and snug perhaps in our own self imposed lockdown, with time to kill on our hands, hence the heavy responses on CC. Try siting at home with multiple phones ringing from all over the world, well at least from within the USA and wondering how do we, possibly as a family, survive another two weeks or more. End of my soap box, comments. Oh and incidentally we have a considerable investment
  10. We are still in a wait mode and we leave from Barcelona August 1. Scary times, stay healthy.
  11. We all knew this was coming, but I feel for those who have perhaps waited so long to partake of a Seabourn cruise. One thing I noticed is that additional expenses, air, insurance etc., are not noted in their response?
  12. MJN1, We have finally booked a private tour with Tangier Excursions. The tour will pretty much mirror image your tour, exception being 09:00 - 16:00. Must admit they have some great reviews on TA and on their website, plus I had requested some specific foods in mind for lunch and they have us accommodated. Even gave me the name of the restaurant. Again, thank you for your much needed input.
  13. Anybody know if Roger is still a manager at the Pinnacle. Loved this guy from our Prinsendam days.
