  1. Is this a personal message in your My NCL email? I can't get to this site. Okay, I found it. It's here: https://www.ncl.com/ca/en/suspended-sailings Scroll down the page and look under the second FAQ question about refund requests.

  3. Considering Canada is delaying 2nd vaccines for 4 months, that offer will definitely help some folks.
  4. Except DeSantis just killed cruising by saying no businesses can require proof of vaccine - except the CDC just required that all crews and port personnel be vaccinated. So now there's a conflict for the port personnel. I just started a new thread about the mess.
  5. So... yesterday the CDC released new technical instructions for moving forward on starting cruising again. Among the requirements is establishing a plan and timeline for vaccination of crew and port personnel. Enter Governor DeSantis, who is pushing for cruising to reopen but who passed a law for Florida the other day banning any kind of COVID vaccine "passport", including for businesses. Workers -including port personnel - do not have to prove they've had a COVID vaccine. Rock, meet hard place.
  6. The new CDC no cruise order from the US now goes until Nov 1st.
  7. And I see someone else just said their Jade cruise was cancelled for late October, also for "redeployment". Our cruise was a fall leaf tour on the Joy, NYC to Canada. Well, we were expecting it and are glad we weren't left hanging until early September. Unfortunately, this is our 3rd cruise in a row that has been cancelled. The good thing, we will received a 10% increase in our cruise credits, according to the email.
  8. August 2022? I think you have a pretty good chance. By this summer, a good amount of the US will be vaccinated against COVID and NCL will have had time to do a bunch of trial cruises.
  9. Our FCC were issued in both CA and US dollars, a few years ago.
  10. Portugal has a population of only 10 million people. Depending on vaccine availability, they could bounce back quickly. There's no way to tell how things will go until we get closer to that time. BTW, the original poster's question was simply about paying a fee to change a booking.
  11. Lisbon isn't the US, other countries have done a much better job of dealing with COVID and now that vaccines are available It's possible this cruise - which doesn't involve America - might make it. We won't know until we get closer. If you don't want to pay the fees, ask to speak to the cruise consultant's supervisor. If you bump things up the chain they can be pretty accommodating, especially over something as small as that fee.
  12. Personally, as soon as our first cruise in March 2020 was cancelled, I wrote off the money that was transferred into FCC. But as long as the company exists I have hope I'll be able to transfer that money to a new cruise. (Right now, we're looking at our 3rd cruise being cancelled due to COVID.)
  13. I'm not so sure I agree with that. But somebody needs to put it on Biden's radar before it'll get done.
  14. Just yesterday I was reading the US is currently vaccinating people at a rate of 1.3 million per day. Canada is vaccinating at a rate of about 6,000 per day. Canada has 1/10 the population of the US, roughly.
  15. I think if NCL cancels you get 125% back, so might want to let them cancel.
