  1. One of the problems is they have increased the prices a lot for future cruises. When we booked our eight night in July we had no idea this would be going on and now may be punished. I do not want a L&S that has a short expiration. My wife is a teacher so we have limited time when we can go.
  2. I don't know if this true for cruises originating in the U.S., but the cruise lines do. I hope they open back up but I don't see them going contrary to the CDC.
  3. The drink package for our July 2021 is $50 pp/pd. Still too much for me but interesting hearing what others are paying.
  4. We are on the July 17 Southern Caribbean cruise. I sent a message to RC asking what they planned. Of course I got a message saying nothing.
  5. We were booked on the Brilliance in July 2021 changed to Independence. We received an email then a few days later the cabin assigned. At first the price was much higher but after a few more day the price was adjusted and it was around $400 lower than the original price. No OBC, but a $400 price reduction is good with me.
  6. We had our refund in just over two weeks from the November cruise that was canceled by NCL.
  7. We had booked an November cruise that has been canceled. They offered a 10% discount on a future cruise but looking at the 2021 and 2022 cruises we can take (my wife is a teacher so we are limited on when we can go) they are 30-40% higher than the cruise we had booked. We told them to send us the refund and we are done for now. We have another one booked for July on RCCL and will see if that goes. If it does not go we will probably be done for a while.
  8. We have another one booked in July on RCCL. We will wait until after that to see if it goes and what kind of restrictions they have to see if we want to go through all this again. I am losing faith in these companies and the agencies that control them. I have my own views of all this lockdown and may just rent a remote cabin so I don't have to deal with the uncertainty.
  9. A little more than 2021. I would expect a little increase.
  10. The problem with the 10% is the same cruise next year, same week, (my wife is a teacher so we are limited on when we can go) is about 30%-40% higher. I realize they are having a hard time but this is a lousy way to treat their customers.
  11. We booked a November cruise in May. Of course it is now cancelled. Looking at similar cruises next year, same week, they are 30% - 40% higher.
  12. We are booked on the Jade for Nov. 22 and have the "Your Cruise is on Hold but time is running out" with the Make a Payment button. Of course we have paid in full by now. There is also a message in the Message Center that says I have a payment due but cannot access anything. I called and they are claiming a website glitch, not to worry, everything is fine. We shall see.
