  1. Glad you got your refund, quite a few were told the same as you. I was told the same. I had to dispute mine too but won, situation was way different. They chose to take my free cruise away when they cancelled the second time and only give me fcc for tips, port fees and all those little extras that they wouldn't let me cancel back in March trying to avoid these problems. That didn't come near to getting a new cruise, so who are the fraudsters, lol.
  2. Same crap going on all over. Glad you got to go to Mexico. Still waiting for my husband's work to let them travel without the quarantine crap, and we'll be doing a road trip. Much easier to navigate problems and changes, so it will be a good starting point.
  3. So many scenarios happened. I know quite a few that disputed and got it returned to them, both credit & debit cards. Banks also have different policies with the dates. I disputed mine and won, it took 2 tries. Most of the people I've talked to had 2 attempts and won. The first one is a generic fcc bla bla bla denial. That's when you have the chance to give them what actually happened. Quite a few people lost too.
  4. I'm in NJ, hour away from that port. Let's put it this way. I'm not betting a deposit on either of them.
  5. I saw that today and about the social distancing for the holidays. He doesn't paint a pretty picture. I'm sure Murphy will be putting his spin on things if he hasn't already. And the panic buying has started, so yeah I'm not banking on anything for awhile.
  6. Are you on Royal or NCL, I posted my experience with NCL thinking that's who you were with. Either line, make sure you let them cancel and save yourself some problems that may occur. Do yourself a favor and choose full refund if they cancel unless you want to play the will I stay or will I cruise game. I'm holding off until things get back to normal. My beef was with NCL, not sure why people think that NCL has a right to force your gratuities, excursion and drink plans into FCC, but my bank didn't see it that way as their FCC did not make my cruise complete.
  7. I hope you don't have to go through that. Alot of people couldn't get refunds and gave up on it. Make sure they cancel first and make sure they are not going to give you another "free cruise" extention if you end up going through it and need to dispute. By them pulling the rug out from under me with no more cruise, but we'll hold your "extras" in FCC, they lost.
  8. After they cancelled my August rebooked sailing, they would not give another cruise. I had to dispute with my credit card and won. I will never book a MyVegas cruise w/NCL again.
  9. Receiving mailers from all 3 of them, but only got calls from Carnival, and that was for my son who hasn't cruises since 2016.
  10. Same here, I was denied on the first round, but I appealed i and won. NCL likes to put out a 20+ page report on why they don't want to pay but only 1-2 pages actually have anything to do with it.
  11. I'm from NJ, I think a lot of us feel this way. I can't even leave the state because of my husbands employer, pretty much you nailed it as to why. And with cases rising, my dream of driving to Florida Christmas week is gone. There is no way my husband can go.
  12. Like alot of us in the same situation. I booked in December 2019. When you read the fine print, you're thinking of hurricanes, snowstorms and family emergencies. Who'd would have thought this could happen. Hope it all works out for you.
  13. Hi neighbor, I'm in NJ, 2 cruises, one weekend B&B and a trip to Florida all cancelled. We were going to try and go around Christmas but numbers are rising and my husbands job won't lift the 14 day quarantine & test any time soon. I can't even leave the state. My husbands employer has a question/answer form every morning before entering. If he says I left the state he will have to quarantine, guilty by association.
  14. Dispute it. Make sure you hold onto all docs and other proof. If you get a denial, just appeal armed with your actual proof. Some people get everything fixed on round one. Quite a few on the appeal. It depends on how your bank handles these things.
  15. Same here with my health. I fought tooth and nail to get my money back from another cruise from March (should have stayed with Carnival, that's on me). I'm not going to rush to be the first on the ships. When it seems to be back on track, I'll give it another shot with a balcony for added insurance.
  16. I'm not new to cruising, but attempted NCL for the first time. The way they handled this crap show is ridiculous. I ended up going the dispute route. Still not finished with it. Received the notice that I won and get to keep the money after the dispute was appealed. Now I'm missing money in the account. Once my bank figures out their errors, I can put this thing to bed. (Just hope their error wasn't an approval, yikes)
  17. Even employers are pulling the 14day quarantine and test card. I had to cancel a road trip because of my husbands work. We can even go into PA or NY because of it and they're on the safe list to travel as of last week anyway,
  18. It's not removed yet, but I suspect it will be. The final determination was made last week, so I'm sure it takes them time. Take all they want, I have no intention of using it.
  19. We are waiting for the same reasons. I really struggle with the mask (health problems), but I use it anyway. I keep my outings shorter. I can't gamble with placing more money down either. Even if the cruiseline does sail, it doesn't mean my husbands employer will let him. Quite a few people are under that pesky rule of not leaving their states. I had to cancel a road trip too. When that rule is lifted, than we'll try. Can't even do a road trip, oh I wish he was retired.
  20. Exactly. They pulled this crap on me too and than some. I filed, I lost, I appealed with the actual proof and documents, I won. It's not a cookie cutter situation for everybody.
  21. So you're going to start off your post with "scared of cruising" and "doom and darkness" terms? Is that in retaliation for other posts that didn't go your way? Second thought, don't answer, I don't care.
  22. No to original poster who actually put that in the post? I apologize, I should have quoted it. Just tired of everybody with the "too scared to" garbage. Most of us aren't scared, we weigh things out.
