  1. Happy Canada Day! It would of been nice to celebrate in Florence as today we would of been there on the good ship Allure of the Seas!
  2. I would say my situation was very similar. I called last week after waiting 45 work days. I did call my bank as RCL said the refund transaction was rejected weeks earlier. My bank has no record of something coming through. RCL said the refund was "stuck" but now a supervisor has put a priority on it. We will see. It is disappointing on how RCL has handled these refunds. I wish there was at least some communication on RCL's part to recognize the problems they are having and be honest on how long it could take.
  3. Have not received a refund yet but did call today to inquire. I had refundable deposits on a b2b this summer but I cancelled on March 23, a week before final payment due. I phoned today and did talk with someone fairly quickly. They said that my refund was processed on April 11 but was rejected by my Bank. The refund was now "Stuck". She put me on hold and I was told that the supervisor was going to process the refund right away. I assume they gave the XT personal computer that RCL accounting systems run on a kick or took out the floppy disk and reinserted it ! More concerned about a credit we received last year because of the Independence being moved from Europe to Florida. Initial expiry was July 31st this year for it to be used. We used on our cancelled trips this summer. The credit is still valid but we have to sail by Dec. 31st this year. I think its unlikely we will cruise again this year (wife is a teacher) as summer is best time.
  4. Its good to see the Allure going to a port to have some work done on it as well as offload crew to get home. Makes me a bit melancholy as we were scheduled to do a b2b in June on her.
  5. I was happy that it looked like the Oilers were actually going to make the playoffs this year. Being in the Stanley Cup Final with the Leafs. Be still my heart!
  6. FInal NHL regular season games would of been tonight. Playoffs would of started next week. I miss hockey!
  7. I was being a little flippant when I asked about NON-Smoking as I was thinking that the designated NON-Smoking area would be so small to accommodate the handful of people that did not smoke. I was a teenager in the 70's and it seemed to me that every adult and 13 year old girl smoked. To fly to the Port to get on this ship, you would of flown on a plane that had an ugly seat colour/pattern and an ashtray in the armrest.
  8. Just wondering if there is a NON-Smoking area on the ship?
  9. If it is Rotterdam, then RCCL is willing to make up. No idea if they have used them recently since this incident. https://www.cruiselawnews.com/2018/05/articles/crew-member-rights/royal-caribbean-boycotts-rotterdam-shipyard-after-€1000000-fine/
  10. I looked at a couple of different positioning sites and it looks like the Allure is well past Gibraltar. Gibraltar is still shown as the destination though.
  11. Just curious, what article stated that Allure will sail back empty to Florida after fixing the propulsion issue?
  12. https://www.macleans.ca/economy/economicanalysis/the-toilet-paper-panic-and-why-more-stockpiling-is-inevitable/
  13. This is probably the story your reffering to: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/covid-19-cruise-ships-bc-bonnie-henry-says-season-should-be-delayed-1.5492180
  14. Final payment is March 30th for a Euro cruise this June. I suspect we will cancel if things proceed as they are but content to wait until then to see how this plays out over the next 2-3 weeks. Right now Italy and Spain are the primary countries we would be visiting and they both are getting hit hard.
