  1. We would be driving to Ft Lauderdale and overnighting before boarding the Zuiderdam tomorrow for a 26 day transatlantic and Greek Odyssey cruise. We will likely book the similar cruise on the Westerdam for next year. We are waiting to receive our refund for this years canceled cruise and to make sure that cruises are resumed.
  2. We are booked on a transatlantic departing on April 19 and terminating in Venice on May 15. I am glad to see the new cancellation policy but not surprised. I wonder if air booked through flight ease will also be refunded as FCC. Additionally, we prepaid for internet and some shipboard credit and would hope that those amounts would be simply refunded. While we will wait until close to March 31 to decide, I don't see a lot of hope that we will be confident enough to not cancel at that point but who knows? Questions, questions!
  3. Below is copied from my cruise contract: All other sailings and cruise tours including Holiday departures: 91+ days prior to departure: No fee (unless you booked under a nonrefundable deposit cruise fare rate) 90 - 64 days prior to departure: Deposit amount 63 - 43 days prior to departure: 50% of total cruise fare 42 - 22 days prior to departure: 75% of total cruise fare 21 - 0 days prior to departure: 100% of total cruise fare You may want to double check your contract to make sure of the cancellation dates.
  4. We are also booked on a cruise departing 4/19, transatlantic and following cruise terminating in Venice. I bypassed my TA and called HA. I was also told that I could book another cruise departing in the same time frame of equal value. No help at all! We have decided to roll the dice and gamble that either it will be safe to take the cruise or that HA will cancel and will be obligated to a full refund, rather than the 50% we'd receive if we canceled by March 8.
  5. My wife and I are booked on the Oasis for a 7 day cruise in February. We live in Tallahassee and will be driving to Miami the day before the cruise. I'm looking for recommendations for a park and cruise hotel. Also, we are veteran cruisers but have never cruised with Royal or on a ship anywhere nearly as big as the Oasis so any tips will be welcomed!
  6. I will definitely be following and am grateful that you will be posting during the cruise! Peggy and I will be boarding the day that you disembark! I will be interested in the quality of internet that you experience as well as any observations about the ship, lectures, entertainment, food, etc. Also, we are booked in an aft veranda on deck 8, so any observations re vibrations etc. will be eagerly read! Bon Voyage and may you experience fair winds and following seas!
