  1. That's ideal or those close to a port but for those of us who need to fly a long way, not so ideal. Especially for those who may get turned away at the airport with a fever. Too late to cancel cruise. Travel and cruise must be in sync or a lot of money could be lost. Same in reverse. Fly to port and then not able to board. Actually, I AM close to a port, living in a port of call but that is so frustrating seeing ships come and go but needing to fly to cruise! 😝
  2. I had the September cruise on the Encore to New England/Canada booked as well. I cancelled before the May deadline because of the many uncertainties especially in it being round trip from NYC. Being in the high risk age sector there are just too many cons compared to the pros and I did not want my full payment tied up until the winter either. One of the pros (time in NYC) may be a con as well now. It would hardly be a relaxing experience visiting NYC anytime soon. And we just don't know the policies when cruises return. I hope that I can still sail on the Encore next year after we know what the terms and conditions are in the new cruise world. I don't want the stress that keeping the booking entails. Being able to cancel for an FCC does not give me "peace of mind" at all.
  3. I cancelled a September cruise 2 weeks ago. Only my deposit. Was told I would get refund in 7-10 days and then when my actual invoice was sent it said up to 90 days. So they are saving every dollar they can, even our worthless Canadian ones. 😄
  4. Well, I made the deposit long time ago so it would seem the $100 would be the amount concerned, one way or the other.
  5. So I have $100 US refundable deposit paid with a final payment date of May 8. If I let the date go by do I lose the deposit, get it refunded or get an FCC. I am thinking that if I get it refunded it is better than an FCC for cancelling. Or maybe I just forfeit it in that case? I realize things are changing fast and who knows where we will be in 6 weeks but wondering what the policy would be today. I am happy that it is just the deposit and not the whole fare that is affected.,
  6. Thank you, Bird. And Hallux, I heard that same question on WTC on Carnival Horizon, However, between my hearing and the accent, I heard "doors" not "floors" so my answer was a little bit off🤣
  7. Never been on Princess but just came off RC Harmony which had no screen in either venue they used.
  8. I have always enjoyed the trivia and games in the newer NCL ships as the atrium is used along with a screen where the questions are displayed, which is helpful for we passengers with reduced hearing. This has not been my experience with other cruise lines and I often quit early in frustration. My question: When I cruise on the Encore, can I expect the same policy with the screen display?
  9. What were the Corona procedures this week. Was it still the 3 questions method or was there any temperature taking etc?
  10. Adding to the math facts above, I did a quick calculation last week. According to the numbers I used, 1 oui of every 10,000 residents in Wuhan, the epicenter, had been infected. Infected, not died. Extrapolate that to China and it is infinetesimal. Now take that half a world away and you could probably have a better chance winning the lottery twice in a row
  11. Yes, I would be very interested in the Cruise compasses as we have the same itinerary. Thank you for all the info!
  12. A St. Patrick's Day parade already! I hope this means they celebrate it right up until the 17th!
  13. Has anyone bought the $25 deal at Holland House? Does the 4 drinks include mixed drinks or just beer, soda and water? For us that will decide where we go. TIA
  14. How is the water packaged on the Harmony this week? Plastic bottles or tins that have started showing up on other vessels?
  15. Getting back to the Holland House, does that price include more than beer as far as alcohol goes? I read somewhere that it is beer, soda and water. My wife does not drink beer but cocktails so that may be the show stopper! 😇
