  1. Received an email from NCL today. Certificates with an expiration before 12/31/21 will now have a book by date of 12/31/21 for sailings through 12/31/22.
  2. The NCL hotel is Crowne Plaza Quarto D'Altino. Normally we would book our own hotel but we are travelling with a very large group and using the NCL air. When ssing NCL's hotel, all of the transfers are taken care of and we will all be in the same place for pre-cruise excursions. Now, if we can only sail!. .
  3. I was looking for late June 2022 for the Horizon for an itinerary similar to what we had booked. It was about $1700 more. Looked at the same week we had booked for this year on the Horizon in August of 2021 and August 2022, both a little more than $600 more than we had paid just to see the rates but we cannot go either of those times. I will keep on checking what else gets released.
  4. John Heald posted this morning that 2022 itineraries will be released for the Dream, Glory, Horizon, Paradise & Vista and that others will be released in the next few weeks. I will be on the lookout.
  5. It's the August sailings too. 😩. We are set to sail 8/22 on the Horizon.
  6. Were you able to contact Carnival for an explanation?
  7. Thanks so much. I know he can travel with the birth certificate but I always prefer to have the passport. He also has a valid global entry card. We will definitely carry the expired one with is just in case!
  8. We are sailing 8/22 on the Horizon as well. My older son's passport expires on 8/11. He is 15.When we went to the post office in early April, we were advised not to send it in for processing as they are only fulfilling emergency passport requests, I keep checking the website and it still urges not to send in your documents at this time. We have had passports for the boys since they were infants and have never sailed without them, but I guess we will take the chance this time if we are able to sail and the passport agency does not get back to normal.
  9. Well....they are back. This morning our 8 night on 8/22 on the Horizon is available in several categories. Weird.
  10. Hope to see you on the Horizon on 8/22. Fingers crossed!
  11. We are booked for 8/22 on the Horizon. No notification about any change. My reservation is still there and I can add specialty dining etc. Yesterday there were quite a lot of available cabins. Scary that it's missing now on a search.
  12. We are booked on the Horizon for 8/22/20. Originally had 13 cabins, down to 11 so far. I know there is no guarantee we will still sail but holding out hope that things will be better and safe enough to sail.
  13. We wanted to make a group reservation for JiJi on my son's birthday for our upcoming cruise on the Horizon. There are 26 of us. We were advised to make 3 individual (because max is 12 on one)reservations and then speak to the maitre'd on board. I have no problem paying up front but really wanted to make one reservation so we could be guaranteed of the same time and sit close to each other.
  14. I guess it is ship specific, or I just did not get lucky. Tried the HUB app to book for the Horizon for this coming August for JiJi for my son's birthday, but it brought me to the regular cart and required payment. I am trying to get a reservation for 31 people. My TA was told by groups and the special events coordinator that the only way we can do this is to make three separate reservations, then let them know when we are on board that we are together. Seemed really odd to me. I posted on John Heald's page to ask and he confirmed that's the only way to do it now. I do not mind about pre-paying, but I would really like the make the reservation at one time so we could be assured we all got the same time and could sit nearby.
  15. LOL Yep. My cruise for August of 2022 I booked with the "20% off sale" is about $40 more today with the "30% off sale". 🙄
  16. If this is legit, might be nice. I put a deposit on a Hawaii cruise for 2021 with the "20% off with all the perks". Will be interesting to see if the price changes tomorrow. Fingers crossed. LOL
  17. All of the mixologists are amazing but Anna Maria, now on the Panorama, is the best!!
  18. Thanks, I usually catch these but hadn't seen it yet. It was on my regular green card but not the Delta Gold. Will save me $100 on my upcoming Horizon trip. Used one a few months back as well.
  19. Really want to do a British Isles cruise with my group in 2022 but we are limited to sailing when the kids are off from school. Fingers crossed!
  20. I have been the coordinator of a group quite a few times now. I always select the on board credit. 3 amenity points on a 7 night cruise for example, gives a $50 OBC to each cabin. This way everyone can choose what they want to spend it on.
  21. Sailed on the Breeze this August. My boys had lobster rolls and a seafood platter one afternoon at the Seafood Shack. They enjoyed it!
  22. Hmm, I ordered 1 $500 card and 4 $100 cards in one order last Monday with no problem. Maybe glitches in the system from time to time. Using mine towards my Horizon cruise next August. Hope the new program includes the Carnival cards too!
