  1. Eureka! We cancelled our Regal Princess from FFL April 19 on March 15, confirmation received on March 16th. Option #2 - FCC and FCD received a month ago or so. Full credit to CC dates May 29th, posted June 2nd now received. We never contacted Princess or CC company, just waited and trusted Princess. Now we wait for a vaccine and can plan our next cruise. Good luck to all awaitng their refunds, etc.
  2. From reading other Forums/roll calls and Facebook there seems to have been a large up-tick in payments being processed in the last few days by Carnival cruise and Princess; many dated May 15th. Here is an update from Princess at 2:00 PM EST 11:00 AM PST. Comments seem to indicate Carnival brands/subsidiaries had been processing the refunds and now that CCL has $ they are releasing the "refunds". Looks like we may start seeing $ flowing back for HAL guests very soon.
  3. You may be aware of the rulings for air travel refunds in Canada; it has been widely covered in the media. Here is a Facebook page with lots of information on the subject (for Canadians airlines) https://www.*****/AirPassengerRights Good luck.
  4. Was it with a Canadian carrier? If so you will only gt an "expiring" credit. That is our situation also.
  5. From my understanding and after a long banking career; if one disputes a charge and the Credit Card Company agrees to the "refund", it was off set from charges processed. In other words what fares paid using a credit card that were due to the cruise line and transferred nightly, so before the transfer is completed any "refunds" and reversals are netted out. Since the industry is at a standstill there is little $ going from credit card companies to cruise lines making it very difficult for credit card companies to off set refunds; and they can't just take $ out of the cruise lines bank accoun
  6. bobgep said: a little note to remember, all these cruise lines are foreign corporations, bankruptcy or insolvency will be filed in a distant land, not the US Regardless Bankruptcy laws are mostly similar around the world. If you are an unsecured creditor you lose!
  7. Further to my posting Page 77 #1918 regarding staff layoffs. More details being made available. Specifically relating to Princess from LA News outlets, where their corporate office is located. We are in for a long wait and we may need to consider that we may never see refunds. Cutting back staff will only extend the delays. Additionally from Seattle News outlets Seattle-based Holland America Line to furlough, lay off nearly 2,000 employees. If they are laying off 2,000 at HAL how many will be laid off at Princess? Will anyone be left to deal with refunds ......... C
  8. Unfortunately we would be considered unsecured creditors and would not receive any $. Common share holders would also lose their investment and any other supplier, etc. Interesting to note recent financing to secure additional operating capital is being secured using their ships, so if they declare bankruptcy they can negotiate with their secured creditors and resume operations. A common practice.

  10. We were to be on the same cruise and we HAVE received our 25% FCC but no cash refund.
  11. Unfortunately this extend the process for all of us waiting for refunds. Carnival Corporation Confirms Company-Wide Layoffs May 14, 2020 Carnival Corporation announced today a number of additional actions it is taking to further strengthen its liquidity position in the event of an extended pause in guest operations due to COVID-19, according to a press release.

  13. Maybe so but they could be redeployed as needed, having Sr mgnt experience you have to deploy resources as per demand, reduce the demand and they can deal with refunds.
  14. I believe there are many factors contributing to the delays; staffing levels, working from home, etc. But the parent company CCL was on the verge of bankruptcy and now has to meet ongoing expenses, the largest is getting their crews home (remember those great people on board who catered to all our wants and needs) they have been stuck on their ships for 60 days away from their families and many will be unemployed for a long time. The cash CCL has (after their recent re-financing and don't forget CCL has many brands under the umbrella to manage with now limited cash resources) is firstly going
