  1. I went ahead and filled out "give me a refund" form this morning. It wouldn't load until today. I still have cruises this calendar year so it's not that sad, saddest thing is the ship sailing just 10 miles from our home. -Paul
  2. Yea, we had a great deal from our homeport in SF, that included all the freebies and $200 in Casino cash. So will the Casino department be contacting me? -Paul
  3. Yes, I've paid for the port taxes and fees, which amounted to $136. (Everything else is comped) I've used AA miles for my airfare all the way from the West Coast to MIA. It's only a 6 day cruise but a spacious balcony for $199 would be worth it for me.
  4. Delta says it will block middle seats through March 31, everyone else will sell as many seats as possible starting in January or sooner. United added 1400 flights to it's schedule next week for Thanksgiving, (they said demand warranted it) this is going to get really awful until we can get vaccines into peoples arms. And CDC says stay at home next week for Thanksgiving.
  5. Hi- I'm booked on a 6 day Caribbean on the Independence of the Seas on 06-13-21. I have an Oceanview cabin for free as part of my casino offer. I'm wondering if I will get upsell offer when we get closer to the sail date like you get when you purchase a regular cruise fare? I'm totally happy with my cozy little free Oceanview cabin since I'm sailing solo on this trip, but a balcony is always better. I know all upsells are contingent on the yield management/capacity of the ship starting about 10-14 days before sailing. Thanks, Stay safe through t
  6. I think it's a nice benefit if you are in a Neptune, but I would not pay extra for it.
  7. When I login to the HAL website I get private sale fares that are actually cheaper than the Casino offer less the Casino cash. Also Casino offers can be solo cruises with no single supplement penalty.
  8. Well maybe you should tell HAL that Reserve your spot by January 15, 2021. Call 1-800-330-2249 or your travel advisor today! YOUR CRUISE ITINERARY 11-Day Southern Caribbean Wayfarer® Rotterdam
  9. Hi- 11 Day Southern Caribbean Wayfarer on the Rotterdam leaving 12-01-21 from FLL, $50k slot tournament, $250 casino cash, reduced cabin rates, $880 for a Verandah. This is a nice cruise for a Casino offer, (I mean itinerary and length wise, usually they are just 7 day cruises) I would bite except that I'm already booked on a Casino cruise on 11-14-21 day Mexican Rivera. Oh well, maybe next time. -Paul.
  10. This story has gotten a lot of traction in the media, I've had 2 friends who don't cruise egging me on to volunteer. Since I have a "free" gambling cruise on RCI in June I'm not really eager to be a Guinee pig. But if I lived in a port city where they are going to be "practicing" I would sign-up for it.
  11. I'm assuming it will just be Florida ports, which is good if you want to volunteer and live in Florida but not if you live on the West Coast.
  12. So I guess these means RCI and Carnival will start up again from the US in mid Nov. And HAL & Princess in Mid Dec? Although it is not recommended you cruise on any ship anywhere in the world. It's a compromise, the current Administration wants everything to appear as normal as possible in the middle of a global pandemic. -Paul
  13. I remember getting to eat all the ice cream I could when I had the mumps but it wasn't a fair trade-off. My father had Polio and was saved when the vaccine came out.
