  1. - May have to wait if busy. - May not get the entertainment - Not the same personal service due to different staff each night
  2. We were facing the same issue for our October sailing. Some people in our part HAD to cancel due to work. We all went ahead and canceled before the final payment, so we would only be out of $67 each IF Carnival did not cancel. Of course they canceled the next week. But the refund form said that they honor a full refund for anyone who canceled on or after March 6th. So filled out the form and assumed I will get the entire deposit refunded now. But IF, Carnival does not cancel for whatever reason, then you are out of it.
  3. Not me! I am not booking again until they are defiantly sailing, or until they send me a offer to good to pass up to not book now!
  4. I never prepay gratuities or have never purchased cruise cash prior, as it is typically the same as cash and not refundable. We booked the cruise the end of April, and I received an email for 20% off cruise cash about a week later, so I bought $200 for $160. I don't expect but $160 back. But I read that it is non refundable, so I wasn't sure if that meant that just the left over amount was non refundable or if it is nonrefundable canceling before the cruise also.
  5. I was getting 20% off, if it wasn't for that, I would have never purchased it. I had NO intentions of canceling the cruise, but half of our party wouldn't be able to work for two weeks afterwards. Their jobs were making them quarantine after we return... just a big mess.
  6. I purchased cruise cash for our October cruise, which we ended up canceling the cruise. (very sad). With that being said, does anyone know if the cruise cash is refundable since I canceled the cruise?
  7. We felt slight engine vibration all week. But when we pulled into port, it felt like a legit earthquake. We had a upper deck and one of the middle two rooms. The room was slightly larger than the typical ocean view rooms on the fantasy class.
  8. Norweign just announced they have suspended through the end of October now. We have an October 15th booked (our rescheduled cruise that got canceled in March). We were about to cancel due to some of the group going with us concerned about work when returning. Our final payment date is Saturday. Now I am wanting to wait so we don't loose 2/3's of our refund and OBC. But I am hoping that it comes sooner than later. But the sad part is that when we booked, we were given $500 obc + $300obc for moving the balance from our prior cruise to this one. Now I am sad that the $50
  9. Our March cruise was canceled. We opted for the OBC, and applied our deposit to our October cruise, which isn't looking to promising now... if our October cruise gets canceled also, and we opt to apply it to another cruise too, will we get $300 more in OBC giving us a total of $600, for not getting a refund for either cruise? Our final payment date is August 1, so we are just trying to figure out all of our options. Thanks!
  10. Hopefully NONE of the Fantasy class ships, as we prefer these smaller ships over the larger ones!
  11. My offers now are meh. In April and May, I scored some great deals. 4 days for $795 for three of us in a OV, $500 OBC with the offer, $300 OBC for now getting a refund from our canceled cruise and applying it, and free drinks in the casino for me! And I scored some cruise cash at 25% off! When we looked at booking this same cruise before the corona nonsense, it was $1,200 for the same room same cruise and NO OBC. Now I just hope that we get to go in October!
  12. I was just curious. We never have removed our gratuities. But we normally tip extra to our cabin steward and wait staff when having set dining.
  13. Is this people REMOVING gratuities or not paying any ADDITIONAL tips?
  14. We booked a 4 day out of Jacksonville for October a little over a month ago. We were planning on booking and some friends going for their first cruise. Once rates dropped, we booked putting three in a cabin for $265, free DOU for two of us, $500 OBC for the offer plus $300 added from our cruise that got canceled in May. The OBC equals what we paid, so are cruising for FREE! I am hoping and praying that they are sailing by then!
  15. Our March cruise got canceled, so we rebooked for October and scored $1,600 OBC between the two cabins! I hope that we cruise!
