I have a question about the cruise with confidence future cruise credit. I received a credit for a cancelled Anthem of the Seas cruise from March 2020. I have applied the credit to another cruise on Anthem that will sail in June 2022. Of course, the credits are for each individual and I was able to use the whole amount for my cruise fare. However, my husband (as the second discounted guest) was only able to use a portion of it and has a residual $490 FCC to be used at a later date. I was told that he will receive this $490 FCC as a new certificate after the June 2022 sailing. However, he just received the email below. I already have a few cruises between February 2022 and June 2022. I was not really interested in another cruise before September. I plan on calling Royal Caribbean to clarify and just wondered if anyone else has experience with cruise credits that have residual amounts. Below I have bolded a statement on the Royal Caribbean communication that seems to reinforce the usual process is to issue the residual amount after the cruise is complete. I hope this post actually makes sense to someone who can answer the question.
