  1. Exact thing happened to me. Mine, fine, husband's...still have not gotten match and that was a year ago! But with my match we do get the discount. And IF we can ever cruise again, hopefully we can straighten his out while on board.
  2. That's what I thought would happen (except I didn't know about the port charge refund). Thank you!
  3. How does this work? We had a cancelled 10/20 cruise. They gave us 125% of the cruise cost (not on our deposit which is all they had at that point, but the total cruise cost). So our 4/18/21 cruise which was paid in full was $4544. They applied $1974 from the cancelled cruise (even though we only had given them $200 deposit total). So how much credit will we get towards a new cruise? Which number will it be based on, the cancelled cruise cost ($4544) or what we paid towards it (4544-1974FCC) = $2570? We would have preferred a cruise in April!
  4. Thank you for the replies. I think we will do as Geobugs suggests. We did book after 8/5 so we will have the Total Cruise Flex plan, just in case. Thank you Ate for that info.
  5. Are you going ahead and making your final payment? We are new to MSC and not sure what to do. We are using our 10/19 FCC towards this cruise in April (4/18 Divinia). All we have invested in this cruise is the $100 each deposit that we gave when we booked the cancelled cruise. My questions are: Would you make final payment with the chance (probably a good one) that it will be cancelled? Or would you cancel this cruise and book one for 2022? Can I do that and use FCC? If the April cruise is cancelled, will the previous FCC be applied to a futur
  6. I can't answer your question OP, but your question brought up a wonderful memory for me. It was my first cruise on Chandris Britanis. We went through (Buzzard's Bay) Cape Cod Canal. It was right around the 4th of July and many people were at their smaller summer homes, campfires lit, colorful lights strung out. We went by so close we were able to talk with them! It is one of my favorite cruise memories. I hope you go through it!
  7. I hope you are right that they do the cancellations on 9/14. Our final payment is due 9/17 and I really don't want to tie up that much $$ with Oceania with a FCC. But ultimately I hope it isn't cancelled, of course.
  8. Interesting thread! My first cruise was on the Britanis circa 1984. Having never been on a cruise I was impressed. Due to finances we had an oceanview cabin in the belly of the ship. 2 beds, one on top and one on the bottom. Teeny cabin. And no bathroom. You had to go to a large bathroom gender specific. There they had private areas for showers and toilets. Thank goodness things have changed since then! I remember seeing the big X on the stacks and wondering what they stood for. Funny that X became our favorite (for now) cruise line! And sadly,
  9. One thing we look forward to in a PH suite is the ability to have a wonderful meal in a comfortable setting. With the Wuhan virus still being front and center when we (hopefully) cruise this Nov, the last thing I want to do is sit with other people, masked, talking about the virus.
  10. We were in a suite over Thanksgiving last year. We were looking forward to experiencing the Suite departure lounge. But our experience was to go to the suite area (outside of the lounge) and stand in line for about 30 minutes and then board the ship. Not sure what in the world happened with that one!
  11. Yupper, agree 100%. I would rather pay for laundry on HAL and what that entails than have it for free on X as Elite. And I am pretty frugal!
  12. We love this channel and the Mighty Trains and Ariel shows. Being a lover of trains and part bird, winners!
  13. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Feeling kind of low these days, what a pleasure it was. I shared it with my husband and he also enjoyed it. We have our first Yacht Club experience coming up in October and are looking forward. Thanks again!
