  1. I envy you're life style, but you have to admit, not everyone can spend 4 months in Hawaii, or have a big South America/Antarctica adventure. For most of us, we just want to get back to our day to day living, and without a vaccine, I don't see how that is possible.
  2. Thanks. Hopefully 2021 will be a better year, and we will be able to cruise before 2022. Most importantly, praying for health and happiness for everyone. Soon, we will able to have some fun!
  3. Ok, good to know. I wasn't sure. So it's good for two years.
  4. I don't think you made a mistake at all. A 10% off credit is nice, but it's not worth the worry that something might happen. If canceling made you feel better and relieved, that's worth more then the 10%, in my opinion. Also, I'm not sure, but isn't the discount only good for one year? So, if you can't travel within a year, wouldn't you lose that 10% anyway?
  5. My opinion, I would cancel, and take the money and run! You can always rebook a new cruise later on.
  6. If you have CNC, why not just book it now, you would have nothing to lose. ( I don't know what the deposit is now, if you don't use CNC). If you book now, you probably would have a choice of any cabin you want. The deal they have going on now is pretty good, although they have raised the prices. You have almost two years to make any changes or cancel. I like booking early, because it gives me something to look at, lol.
  7. lol, I thought the same thing. I doubt they have someone standing in the bathroom, blocking the exit, until they see you wash your hands.
  8. Where did you ever see everyone on a ship "follow proper hygiene'"? Have you've ever used the public bathrooms on a cruise and see people coming out of the stalls and walk right out the door without washing their hands? Plus a host of other things. Some people will never follow proper hygiene. No matter how careful you are, there will always be someone who could care less.
  9. I agree. OP, if you're before final payment, I personally would cancel and get a full refund. There's too many ifs. Waiting, and possibly getting a FCC, that has a an expiration date, is just too much of a gamble, in my opinion.
  10. Is it worth the extra money for the Haven on the Jewel class ships, particularly the Gem? Is it as nice as the larger ships? Thanks
  11. I never knew about this site. It's great, very helpful. Thanks for posting!
  12. Good Luck to everyone with cruises coming up. I hope everything goes well, and this will all be behind us. 🙂
  13. That's what I meant. You will be out the extra money, as it will go to FCC, so in reality, you will be out that extra money, as NCL will have it. So, you're taking a chance on being out more money. I should have worded it better.
  14. Our last two cruises, in 2018, and 2019, Caribbean out of NYC in January and February, the upgrades were sent out around 80 days before the cruise, and were accepted within a couple of days. We did not sail in 2020, so things may be different now. My personal opinion, and it's just an opinion, I have no facts to back it up, but I would think they would try and sell the most expensive cabins first, then upgrade as soon as possible. Then, if the cruise is cancelled, FCC credits will be given out, so that's more money NCL has. So, it's just a matter of how much money you're willing to
  15. I think you may be wrong on this. If you bid on upgrade, and say you pay $1000 for your upgrade, if it is accepted, you will be charged for that extra $1,000. Then, if after that upgrade, the cruise is cancelled, you indeed will be out that additional money.
  16. We were on the Epic in 2010 with friends. It was a brand new ship then. The worse cruise ship we were ever on. We were in a Balcony cabin. The cabin was small, the shower was small, the toilet area was small, the sink in the room was small. If you're traveling with other people, hope they don't knock on your door when you're sitting on the toilet. Who thought putting the entrance door to the cabin in the middle of the "bathroom" was a good idea? Also, certain set ups of the cabin are horrible. Our friend's cabin was opposite ours. She said when her husband got up in the middle
  17. Yes, I corrected my post. I misread the original post. I was thinking of platinum benefits. Sorry for confusion. I confused myself, lol.
  18. From the answers, I don't think that's what the OP was asking. I think she was asking if they have to use two credits for one meal. I don't think you can use a dinner for two, for two separate occasions if only one person was dining. Such as, SOLO travelers cannot use their SDP twice, because only one is dining. Actually, I'm correcting myself. I was thinking of free platinum dinners for two. Not individual SDP that you purchase.
  19. Yes, 566 cases and 22 deaths, not 100 cases and no deaths as someone else stated.
  20. I think your figures are way off.. Also, not everyone on a cruise ship is from the USA Read Below: Welcome to the Contagion Live News Network. I’m Grant Gallagher and this is the COVID-19 update for Monday, March 9, 2020. The US State Department is advising Americans, particularly those with underlying health conditions, not to travel by cruise ship. The CDC has noted increased risk of infection with COVID-19 in cruise ship environments. Several countries have denied port entry rights to ships and prevented passengers from disembarking. US health officials co
  21. How is this statement Hindsight? I posted the same question in March and asked why? Why are people still cruising? The discussions ranged from..... I don't think this is serious yet, I don't want to lose money, I don't think this is real, I'll wash my hands more, and on and on, to someone actually saying "I don't give a ..... about anyone else. I'm going on vacation" It was meant to be a discussion/opinion as to what everyone thought about this virus and cruising. My opinion, whether right or wrong, was that I thought it was selfish and foolish for people to insist on going o
  22. It's really admirable of you to come on here and admit that you feel you made a mistake. There are a lot of people that would not have been so honest. I'm afraid, though, there's still some people that would go on a cruise today if there was a sailing, because they don't think anything can happen to them (or worse yet, infect other people). Just know, that if at least one person that has read your posts made the decision to think twice about their next cruise, or social distancing in their daily lives, has listened to what you said, you have done a great thing! Glad you're feeling bett
  23. It boggles my mind, that in March, when this virus was all about us, that some people still went on cruises.
  24. Sorry, error in previous post. Cancel ! You will be so stressed until July. It's not worth it. If things are better by then (although, I don't think they will be), you can always rebook. There's so much going on now to worry about, don't add this to your stress.
