  1. As someone who is anxious to get on a ship again, thanks. Every month we keep having to cancel (this will make #5 during our Covid pause) and now this looks like a November cancellation - just when I thought we might be good to go.......
  2. It's just so frustrating to have piecemeal information and deadlines extended week by week.....If HAL already knows a new deadline - just let us all know so we can re-book or not!
  3. I didn't know either and looked it up: http://www.aos-usa.org
  4. Will you show quotable information about this please. My most recent story from today shows Cunard is suspending "until November", not through November and it mentions nothing about HAL.... https://www.afar.com/magazine/cruise-lines-temporarily-suspend-operations-virgin-voyage-delays-launch?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=062220 CruisesSuspended&utm_term=Daily Wander Newsletter
  5. Oh HAL are you listening! We are already Three cancelled cruises so far and with two more on the horizon for 2020......Certainly NOT our decision to cancel.....
  6. Keep in mind the older ships have less flexibility if required to accommodate to today's new standards for retrofitting for Covid-19 requirements. And with the reality of sailing at diminished capacities, refurbishing ships to meet new world requirements and sailing only partial ships in the fleets, the CCL Corp decision is fairly black and white.
  7. We're booked on both of these also! I With the KDam parked in Puerto Vallarta, she's anxiously waiting for us all!!
  8. Perhaps you received a Club 21 Offer for a free or VERY HIGHLY discounted cruise and if that's the case you are probably correct. I receive flat Club 21 Casino discounts on all my sailings ( a percentage discount for each sailing) and any and all HAL promos always apply to all my casino discounted cruises, on top of any HAL "promos".
  9. I beg to differ. Sometimes the "fine print" is confusing. I can share that all of my cruises have the casino discount and we were able to take advantage of this promo on all our cruises. Even if HAL cancels, we have some tremendous bonuses and discounts! just call your TA and take advantage - if you wish - it's yours to decide!
  10. I'm sure each of their lines have higher and lower percentages. I'm anxious to learn their staggered fleet re-entry - which ships, when and where are the big questions......
  11. .....Added Donald, "We also want to thank our guests for their many thoughtful notes and overall outpouring of support. It is clear there is tremendous anticipation for a return to cruising. It's also encouraging to note that the majority of guests affected by our schedule changes want to sail with us at a later date, with fewer than 38 percent requesting refunds to date. Our booking trends for the first half of 2021, which remain within historical ranges, demonstrate the resilience of our brands and the strength of our loyal recurring customer base, of which 66% are repeat cruisers. In addition, we plan to stagger fleet reentry to optimize demand and operating performance over time."...... https://www.carnivalcorp.com/news-releases/news-release-details/carnival-corporation-announces-additional-steps-further
  12. Along side with you ..... we've got this same one booked AND we had the earlier Wine Coastal on the KDam booked so fingers crossed they both sail! We have also booked two Caribbean sailings in spring 2021, the Ryndam TA in 2021 and Antarctic in 2022! (along with others we already had booked in 2021). We believe In HAL and we will cruise again.....sooner rather than later!
  13. We have many cruises booked. Three have been cancelled. We elected to take the %125 booking bonus and $250 OBC bonus. We have now received two of the three (six weeks later)bonuses and have rebooked future cruises. The third one (scheduled for 10/3/2020) just cancelled on 5/6/20, so don't expect that credit to show until sometime in July. We'll continue to book into the future. If the cruise cancels, then another bonus/bonus will be on our books. I still look forward to our next sailaway .
  14. I don't know all the intricacies. I hold a number of dividend stocks and many of my shareholder commnications have communicated their decision to take federal aid indicating their temporary dividend payouts. https://www.natlawreview.com/article/effect-dividend-prohibition-cares-act-loans-mid-size-and-large-pass-through-entities
  15. The government CARES act required all companies discontinue stockholder dividends, so CCL is not paying future dividends.
