  1. Well I'm encouraged that they hope to be sailing - I am booked on one of the Venice to Greece itineraries but I wish they would have put something in that press release about any changes that will be on the ships - surely there will be some! and esp. will we be able to DIY once at the ports!
  2. Sorry Roz - I used to check in frequently, too depressing now but hey, you got to add to your number of postings!😉 Well now I wonder why I don't get HAL emails - are any deals offered? like $50 deposits? Thanks!
  3. Long ago, when we were all sailing, there were many threads like this. Different times! but something I have noticed, X keeps sending me emails, deals, price machinations, and as far as I can tell, HAL seems to have stopped such enticements. I get no emails from HAL. I rebooked a cruise back in June for next May and check from time to time and see no price flucuations. I was hoping for lower price, seems they are just offering sort of "have it all" pricing but maybe they are just waiting to see what the situation is going to be. By the way, does anyone know when either X or HAL pl
  4. We are booked for early May 2021 - Italy, Greece, Turkey - a rebooking of a similar trip we had booked for May 2020. I so want to go but the longer this goes on, I'm not too sure about 2021 being very robust for cruising. What do you think?
  5. Well at 7 am I was dialing up X - even tho the website stated opening was at 7, the recording would say it was closed. Finally around 8:15 got an agent, presented my problem, he needed to check with "resolutions" and surprise, no one there😝. Tried again at 9:15, no wait to get "front line" - first given wrong info but after about 10 minutes I was told I would receive a refund of my non-refundable deposit because X cancelled the cruise in about 45 days - fingers crossed. Calling early is good but opening times seem to be a bit "squishy".
  6. Satisfaction? maybe - because X cancelled the cruise, I am hoping to get back my non-refundable deposit. After some phone shennanigans this morning, I have been told that I will get my $$$ in about 45 days. It took several calls but I've got my fingers crossed.
  7. It has been my understanding that if X cancelled, we would get our non-refundable deposit refunded. X did cancel our NE / Canada cruise for late Sept.as Canada closed ports so I'm hoping for $$$$ back - we'll see.
  8. well 32 minutes and I'm folding - worried if I took the advice of Davekathy I'd drink way too much and it's not 5 o'clock yet - will call early in the am.
  9. I have called X - went thru the menu and pressed the # to discuss refund - I seem to be on hold but there is no music or sales pitches - have they just dumped me into a black hole or should I be patient?
  10. Celebrity cancelled our Sept. cruise and I was offered 125% FCC or refund. I requested refund - we had only paid our non-refundable deposit but I was under the impression because Celebrity cancelled we would indeed have our deposit refunded. Today I got notice of a FCC. So that is how it is working?😒I booked directly with X - should I try calling them? And it wasn't even for 125%😒😒
  11. We cancelled our May cruise around mid-March. We got part refund of $$$ (very quickly) and were told that the remainder would be noted on our Mariner account as a credit. This credit does not seem to have been processed. I have called several times (as I have booked a new cruise) and after being on hold for a few minutes, I am told, yes there will be a credit, we will get an email and then we can call and have it added to the new cruise. I am a little concerned because on the cancellation booking it does not state that these monies will be credited - but I was told at time of cance
  12. I have only paid the non-refundable deposit, not final payment. It was for a cruise in Sept., New England and Canada and now Canada has said NO cruises until Oct. 31. I feel fortunate that my cruise was cancelled this far out instead of closer to sail date.
  13. Well as I suppose others here did too, I got an email today that my Sept. cruise has been cancelled (Canada / NE). I had put down a non-refundable deposit. The wording of the email makes me hope that I will get this deposit back (sometime). Any one else have the same situation? - are you thinking getting the deposit back might be an option? Thanks for any feedback.
  14. I've been over to the roll call boards - we just booked a May 2 Westerdam cruise, 12 nights. A roll call has been started but it is titled and combined with the next segment. It is my understanding that each segment should have a separate roll call? Do you think the host will notice and split the roll call(s)? Just trying to minimize confusion for those of us only on one segment of the combined roll call. Thanks!
