  1. Independent TA's that book cruises for their clients through Carnival (GoCCL.com) generally get 10-15% commission of the total fare, and that commission is paid once the booking is paid in full. In the event that there have been multiple rebookings from an original sailing, Carnival can "protect" the" commission already paid out, in most cases - which would not impact the TA nor the client. Meaning the TA would not have to return the already paid out commission. I personally would not use a TA that charges any "fees", as most people can just as easily book their own vacations either th
  2. Ive been getting gift card refunds via Fedex. Individual cards, some with a value as low as .49cents in a Fedex express envelope. Doesnt make much financial sense, but I'm getting them fairly quickly.
  3. You will get two keys. Your sail & sign card and a "room only" blue card (no name, no identifier, just "room only") that will open the door in which you are not berthed to.
  4. I received 1 email for an upcoming 12/27 cruise, but nothing for the cruise prior on 12/20.
  5. I got a gift card refund of 4.38 mailed back to me in a FEDEX overnight 2 day package.
  6. If you purchase it now and Carnival happens to run a sale later on, you can always cancel the one you bought, and repurchase at the discounted rate. That way you will not have to worry about the price increasing.
  7. Your OBC will transfer over and over from cancellations due to Covid-19. You will not, however, accumulate multiple OBCs from previous cancellations rolling into one sailing.
  8. Reservations are now done online pre-cruise (of course you can still try to book once onboard, but 1st night and elegant nights book up)
  9. If you are on the fence about it and have never experienced Cheers before, I would suggest to just purchase it, use it and then after your cruise, decide if you want to purchase it again. There are so many mathematical formulas to calculate the differences and many opinions on why you should/should not purchase.
  10. I posted this on another thread and wanted to share here. If you used a GC to purchase your cruise fare and the cruise is cancelled by carnival and you decide to rebook - the FCC is moved to the new booking regardless how you paid for it (GC or not). If you used a gift card to pay for anything from the funshops (Cheers, Bubbles, Pixels... etc) you can call (1-800-522-7648) and have the items purchased moved over to your new booking, instead of waiting for a gift card refund. Its best to do it the same day you move your FCC+OBC over to the new booking. I just moved my Cheers - which I p
  11. Yes! It was a cheers package transfer and not a monetary transfer. Hopefully you wont have to deal with it and your cruise sails. Good luck!
  12. I had 5 cruises this year cancelled - but I have a NYE cruise (12/27/2020) and a B2B starting 02/7/2021 that I am hoping sticks. I keep on booking, they keep on cancelling ... LOL.
  13. That's why I figured I should share the information with all of the cancellations/rebookings going on. I did the same with the Cheers discount + the 12% GC savings, I didnt want to lose any of it and/or wait months for a new GC to be mailed.
  14. For those that had a recently cancelled cruise and used a gift card to pay for anything from the funshops (Cheers, Bubbles, Pixels... etc) you can call (1-800-522-7648) and have the items purchased moved over to your new booking, instead of waiting for a gift card refund. Its best to do it the same day you move your FCC+OBC over to the new booking. I just moved my Cheers (which I used a Gift Card to pay for) from a Sept 2020 cruise to a Feb 2021 cruise.
  15. Unfortunately not. We had 4 cruises cancelled this year (so far - two more are up for possible cancellations). If you took the OBC offer and rebooked and that rebooked cruise is also cancelled and you rebook again, you do not get to "roll" OBC. But you can have multiple FCC+OBC cruise bookings for different cruises. In our case, we had to rebook 2 cruises 2x's already, but the OBC is only the original amount of 600.00.
