  1. LOVE JVD!!!!!! we were there in 2012 and looking to going back!!!
  2. perfect!! heading to STT the end of January and was hoping we could go over to JVD!!!
  3. Thanks everyone for your help!! We will just wait to see what happens with the Australian government in regards to letting travelers in. From what I have been reading it is not looking good for quite awhile. As it is now, the Serenade was suppose to go from Honolulu to Sydney in September and that isn't happening. Who knows when the ship will even be there!!! The boarders are closed until mid Sept, and Qantas has pulled international travel until mid March.
  4. I doubt we would do the lift and shift since they don't even have our cruises out. Some say oh, they can post them still, but I highly doubt that. Unless they bring another ship over for a short time, not going to happen! But the 125% FCC only if you have paid in full? Our balance is not even due until the middle and end of Nov, which by then we should know if Australia will even let us in!!
  5. I don't want to just go ahead and switch to 2022 because we have our flights, lodging and tours booked. We need to have either RCCL or the Australian government cancel so that we get all that $$ back!
  6. So if we just go ahead and change it, we would get the 125%? This is all so confusing to me!!
  7. We are booked on a 34 night B2B on the Serenade for Feb & March of 2021. As of right now, it is not looking good that the Australian government will even open up the boarders before that. We plan to go in 2022 if these are cancelled. For the L&S, is it only for the same type of sailing, they are not listed for 2022 season. Another thing is these are a 16 & 18 night cruise, We booked them while on the Navigator and got great ship board credits for doing it then. If we have to change, I take it we have to book at least 12 night cruises to keep it. We are looking at a 8, 9 and 13 night on the Ovation with an OS cabin. I just don't want to get screwed out that much ship board credits!! Sorry if this was posted prior, but I was unable to find anything under a search!! Also, I take it that we have to do the L& S before they cancel the cruise in order to get the 125% credit. Also hoping that they cancel before final payment because we are spending some big $$ and hate to tie that money up for such a long time!! It was it was just a couple $1000, I could handle that but this is WAY more!! thanks for your help!
  8. They posted on our cruise planner the photo packages, but didn't see a total digital package where you can get all the photos taken on a memory card or emailed to you. All they had were a number of printed photos. Since we are traveling to Australia (hopefully!), weight is going to be precious!!
  9. Ok, we are going to do a circumnavigate cruise of Australia, Bali and NZ. Normally we just cruise the caribbean, where you always stay on ship time. So whatever port you leave out of, that is the time the ship stays on. Usually you only change 1 time zone, but on this cruise we will be changing quite a few, going ahead a few hours and then back to Sydney (original port we are leaving from) and then behind a couple hours in NZ. Thanks for your help!! Hope everyone is staying safe out there!!
  10. Another place you do not hear them tell to stay away from...casinos!!! We stopped at one in Battle Creek on sunday, it was packed and I mean to the point that you had to walk around to try and find a machine to play!! You have all these people in there, touching machines, money, dice, cards, poker chips, beverage stations, etc. Not once did I notice anyone cleaning any of the machines!! Plus they are warning the elderly to not go into crowds (cruises too!) and what do you see? Elderly people with their walkers and some even pulling their oxygen tanks, even with people smoking all around them!!! You can't tell me that place wasn't loaded with who knows what!!!!! If they want to close down the cruise industry, then close the casinos...oh wait, the states want that free money that people are throwing away trying to win big!
  11. we are 1 year out, but it will be an Australian cruise, maybe that will take a bit longer?
  12. Can anyone tell me when they open up the shore excursions, drink packages, photo packages, etc for a cruise? How far out before you can book anything? thanks!
  13. We were on an RCCL cruise a couple years ago out of Sydney. Can someone please settle a bet, is the payouts in AUS$ or US$??? And do the machines take US$??? thanks!
