  1. A question, what is my best course of action here? Should I just wait for them to move me first? Or should I be proactive and call to secure a decent balcony location? I don't mind the new ship or itinerary but just want to make sure I don't end up in a bad location. I booked "Balcony picked by me" on Explorer.
  2. Got hit by 2. My last 2 booked with Carnival. Oh well. If I choose rebook with OBC, I forfeit any future option to cancel with a refund right?
  3. Sigh, this is going to be a huge mess. My cruise was booked with 4 different credit cards, from 3 different people. More importantly hubby just is not comfortable cruising any time soon. I already have way much cruise credits in the limbo, not sure when they will all materialize. Will just get refund this time.
  4. Well, normal as in I canceled the cruises online as I normally would cancel any cruise before the pandemic.
  5. I had 2 cruises booked both with refundable deposits and I canceled them 3 weeks ago, well before final payment dates, but haven't seen any refunds. Not surprised that there is a delay given the current events but does anyone know how long it currently takes to receive a normal cancelation refund?
  6. I guess is, no, no double dipping. There should be some real reports soon. Let's see.
  7. Yes. All 4 CNs are now back. My in-laws canceled their September Sun Alaska cruise on March 9th or 10th. Ours (same sailing) was canceled by NCL last week. MIL used 4 CNs to book our cruises, doubled up, 2 for themselves, 2 for hubby and I.
  8. No it was a different one but I forgot the exact name. Right now there is a "Cruising into Savings" rate that is refundable and comparable to the one I booked. Carnival used to regularly have a past guest rate that is known to be refundable but i haven't seen that for a while . They now change the name of the refundable rates from time to time. I suspect Carnival is subtly trying to make it not as obvious which rate is refundable. You really have to read the fine print each time to make sure.
  9. Mardi Gras Thanksgiving sailing. Because I had Amex Offers I put down $2200 on it, refundable. There are signs that Mardi Gras may not be ready even without this Covid-19, so I want to prepared and am searching for an alternative cruise in 2021 to my $2200 to. I always always book with refundable rates, no matter which cruise line. This time around my strategy saved me so much grief.
  10. Would you still get the $600 OBC per cabin if your entire cruise is paid by gift cards?
  11. Canceled my Sun Alaska cruise. Thankfully it is still before final payment date and I only put down $100 deposit. Now the wait. My in-laws canceled their cruise on March 9th, got the refund within 2 weeks. They must have got the last batch of regular timed refunds.
  12. That was my experience as well. True to form of a CC'er with a CC, 99% of all my CC refunds are cruise related.
  13. Same boat. Don't think we will be able to use it. I am hoping they might allow us to exchange to 2021 or 2022. But judging by their website they are still trying to sell 2020, I have my doubts they will grant it, at least now.
