  1. We've been on several Greek isles cruises during October (sailing from Venice) luckily the weather has been great (with the exception of Venice) every time. This one from Cyprus is booked for mid September 🤞
  2. Its a no brainer compared to the crazy Anthem prices... Jewel 7 nights Cyprus and Greek Isles £819 including flights and transfers
  3. Anthem 4 nights £679 and for 7 nights British Isles staycation £835 😧 To put that into perspective... Should have been on the Odyssey last weekend... 4 nights over Easter £379 Its a no brainer for us... Jewel 7 nights Cyprus and Greek Isles £819 including flights and transfers
  4. No, not yet... but its only been fifteen days since RCI cancelled it.
  5. I'd love to know who the TA is. This is how I see it: If outside final payment and YOU decide to cancel, then yes you will lose the deposit because at this stage the cruise is still going ahead. You will probably lose the cost of the hotel and flights too if booked independently. June is a long way off. Personally I would pay the balance and see what happens nearer the time. If this all blows over you get to cruise, if not and you decide to cancel, the “Cruise With Confidence” policy allows guests to cancel up to 48 hours before a sailing. Guests will receive a full cr
  6. Seems its OK for guests on those cruises to catch it and spread it
  7. Viking, is offering the choice of a future cruise voucher, valued at 125 per cent of all money paid, or a refund equal to the amount paid. Celestyal Cruises, guests will be offered the choice of either a future cruise credit valued at 120 per cent of original booking value or a refund of original amount paid. Disney, guests affected by this decision will receive a future cruise credit or a full refund Windstar, guests can choose a future cruise credit valued at 125 per cent of all monies paid to Windstar or a refund equal to the amount paid on the Windstar b
  8. They may not 'want' to issue refunds but that decision may come back to bite them in the weeks / months to come. So far the following lines have all suspended operations; Viking, is offering the choice of a future cruise voucher, valued at 125 per cent of all money paid, or a refund equal to the amount paid. Princess, guests have the opportunity to transfer 100 per cent of the money paid for their cancelled cruise to a future cruise of their choice. Plus an additional future cruise credit benefit that can be applied to the cruise fare or onboard expenses. Virg
  9. I doubt it. RCI are happy for you to just cancel and receive a 100% FCC. No additional compensation or incentives to keep your original booking. Some are offering OBC and now I hear that Carnival are offering up to $200 in free drinks, excursion, and spa treatments to keep concerned guests from cancelling. Full details of all cruiseline cancelation policies can be found here
  10. All ocean and river trips are cancelled as of yesterday. Operations will restart on May 1
  11. Judging by the 'work in progress' pictures, Freedom has had a very, very extensive revamp.
  12. It actually says "US Citizens should not travel by cruise ship". Ships are going to be pretty empty if you all heed that advice.
  13. Thermometer guns are notoriously unreliable... https://www.businessinsider.com/thermometer-guns-screening-for-coronavirus-notoriously-not-accurate-2020-2?r=US&IR=T
  14. Carnival seem to have the same screening and cancel policy. But, to avoid knee jerk cancellations, they are offering "incentives" to guests who choose to proceed with their scheduled cruise between now and May 31st: $100 OBC for 3-4 day cruises $150 OBC for 5 day cruises $200 OBC for 6 day and longer.
  15. I'll help them by drinking Corona Beer on our cruise later this month, assuming they still have it.
