  1. Sorry, I didn’t realize you were the same poster. Yours is very screwed up. Best of luck in getting it resolved.
  2. OMG, that is terrible! Did you get a confirmation that they had received your request for a refund? If so, there is definitely something wrong.
  3. Just got the notice that my credit card has been credited for the full payment and drink package tips for my April 12, 2020 Encore cruise. I submitted for the refund the first day I could April 13, 2020. I was pleasantly surprised that they paid before the 90 days. I do look forward to being able to cruise on one of NCL's newer ships one of these days.
  4. The company we used was set up by someone else. We had 20 people that wanted to go, so they used a full size bus, which gave everyone plenty of room. You can read about and see lots of photos of our day in the port of Brest on my website, which is linked to in my signature. Go to page 4 of the Vineyards and Castles cruise. The company we used was https://www.coach-hire-france.com. It was a most enjoyable tour.
  5. The penguins don't pay much attention to humans. Most of them stay together with the group. It was a truly amazing experience to see these gorgeous creatures. I think it was probably my late wife's favorite thing she ever did of the many places we visited all over the world.
  6. I was personally surprised at how easy NCL made it to request the refund. Before I saw the form a few weeks ago, I was falsely assuming that they could make it difficult with long forms that had to be mailed in. This process could not have been easier. This was going to be my first NCL cruise in 15 years. With them making it so easy to do, I will certainly plan on booking another cruise with them when I can fit it into my schedule.
  7. Quite frustrating indeed. I will keep trying also. I certainly don't have anything better to do at this time.
  8. I am booked on the Encore out of Miami on April 12. I am assuming that it will be cancelled soon. I'm sure not going on it.
  9. I have just posted a review to my website with lots of photos of a recently completed New Orleans Mardi Gras cruise on the Celebrity Reflection. In addition to New Orleans, I also visited Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Mardi Gras was awesome, but I also was able to visit the amazing Crystal Caves in Grand Cayman. I wasn’t even aware they had caves there until I was researching for the cruise. I also have the menus from the restaurants, spa and lounges. Below is a photo from one of the 3 parades I attended and one from inside Grand Cayman’s Crystal Caves.
  10. The nice thing about your decision is that their is no wrong choice. The are both good cruises.
  11. David and Julia, please send me an email at mvpinboynton@gmail.com. I am traveling today, but will get back to you tomorrow.
  12. I certainly do remember you two. That was such a wonderful cruise. We met some lifetime friends on that one. We so enjoyed visiting your overwater bungalow before the cruise. With that cruise being 15 years ago, the photos in the review are very small, but they still bring back the fond memories. T'hank you for your kind words. I have been on five Oceania cruises. I do believe that you will thoroughly enjoy your cruise with them. They are my favorite line.
