  1. I always keep 100 shares of Carnival stock but I buy when prices are low and sell when high. I bought a few hundred shares after the Costa Concordia sank and sold them later at a huge profit and bought hundreds more at $7.97 in April. I'm not ready to sell yet because I think the prices are going to jump big once the vaccines start. I also got some Norwegian at $7.77. In volatile times people can easily make or lose a fortune on stocks very quickly.
  2. The stockholder's OBC can NOT be used on a free or heavily discounted casino rate. I had one from Carnival and one from Holland American and both refused to give me the OBC.
  3. With no parades and social distancing, etc. Make plans to come to New Orleans next year. This year sucks.
  4. Three animals were having a huge argument over who was the best: The first, a hawk, claimed that because of his ability to fly, he could attack anything repeatedly from above, and his prey had nary a chance. The second, a lion, based his claim on his strength--none in the forest dared to challenge him. The third, a skunk, insisted he needed neither flight nor strength to frighten off any creature. As the trio debated the issue, a grizzly bear came along and swallowed them all: hawk, lion and stinker!
  5. An Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall for the very first time. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again. The boy asked, "What is this, Father?" The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is." While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a rather heavy, not too attractive, older lady walked up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady walked bet
  6. I met a guy who said he's a criminal lawyer...At least he's honest...!
  7. A man stuck his head into a barbershop and asked, 'How long before I can get a haircut? The barber looked around the shop full of customers and said, 'About 2 hours.'The man left. A few days later, the same guy again stops in and asks 'How long before I can get a haircut?' The barber looked around at the shop and said, 'About 3 hours.' A week later, the same guy stuck his head in the shop and asked, 'How long before I can get a haircut? The barber looked around the shop and said, 'About an hour and a half . The man quickly left. The barber turned to his friend and said, 'Hey, Bob, do me a favo
  8. Today I got my Travel agent to call MSC again and he managed to get my FCC from them on my 4-18-20 cruise to apply to my 2-20-21 cruise. But they have not refunded the taxes and port fees yet. I called the casino dept. about my refund for the taxes and fees on my 3-30-20 and got the answer that they will look into it and to call them back in 2 or 3 days.
  9. My credit card statement came in today showing that MSC refunded my money for cruises on 5-30-20 and 2-20-21 that they cancelled. But I am still waiting for my FCC for my cruises on 3-30-20 and 4-18-20 that they cancelled.
  10. That's probably because it will be September before they know if that cruise will even happen.
  11. I am hoping that cruising starts back before October. If cruise lines can't cruise before May of next year, they will all be bankrupt by then.
  12. Many lines will refund your port fees and taxes right away when they cancel a cruise but it may be months before they refund the cruise fare.
  13. I emailed guestadmin@carnival.com the full information for my May 2021 cruise on June 10 and received my OBC on June 12. Very fast service!
