  1. What kind of FCC only lasted 6 months that they now won't extend at all? Can you clarify?
  2. Booked on her twice for 2021 since February 2019! It's been torture. Two cancellations. I will never sweat another new ship again!
  3. Not yet. For all the reasons previously noted above. I don't like ship excursions, so I hope they don't go there and make that the only option. But if they do, we'll roll with it. I just wanna sail again.
  4. Both options are fine with me. I buy from both to keep my accounts going. The AARP membership has always been worth the cost given the number of discounts you get on many other things. Sometimes the $100 cards are gone from Allstate, but right now they are 12% off vs. 10%. But AARP is instant. 5 a month isn't bad; especially if you also use Allstate. It took AARP over a year to get their crap straight with these cards after they changed to the new program, but it's fine now IMO. Allstate is a pain to set up. So both have their quirks. Overall, a nice option that I will continue using. I no longer hold on to them though - like I used to do in the past. I apply them towards something right away. I don't ever want to be in a situation with a bunch of unused gift cards.
  5. It's not just August. All 8-day cruises on the Horizon are gone till December.
  6. I would call back and if I couldn't get the drop then I would cancel. That's a whole other cruise you could pay for with that price difference. No way I would let that go.
  7. An Ambulatory accessible cabin is NOT equip to handle a wheelchair. There are grip bars in the bathroom and other features. There's no huge difference in these cabins like a full accessible one would be.The link posted above gives a perfect and accurate description. If they put you there, then I wouldn't worry about the possibility of being moved. Oddly enough, we were actually upgraded to an ambulatory balcony on our upcoming Horizon sailing. Didn't ask for it or for an upgrade at all. But my TA said he was contacted. Apparently the cabin we originally booked was in the middle of a big group, so they moved us. Fine with me. Also, being that my husband does use a cane sometimes, I'm not in the least worried about being moved.
  8. We grabbed tags for zone 18 last week and left @ 10:15 exactly. Out of our cabin by 8:30. I was surprised at how many people were still on the ship with suitcases waiting to be kicked off! We always are among the last to leave.
  9. Too early. Even for FLL. There's a reason why you're concerned.
  10. Because there has to be a dividing point somewhere. Every cabin is next to another one. Just like the same party in cabins next to each other can have different room stewards. They don't change the muster location based on who's sailing together.
  11. Dealing with buying gift cards through AARP has turned out to be an exercise in futility. Waste of energy. The program is garbage. I knew it would turn out to be a joke once they announced for months that they were changing the program but then weren't ready when they finally did. I'm thankful to be able to use Allstate although I know that simply doesn't work for everyone. It can be tricky. If that option ever goes away, I'm back to paying full price unless something other than AARP rewards is around.
  12. We don't have to debate anything. I was just commenting. I don't disagree with you.
  13. There's no huge conspiracy theory or the fact that it's a new ship. I'm booked on a back 2 back on the Victory, which will go into dry dock 2 months after the cruise. The 3rd and 4th person is priced higher. It's still a price I am fine with, so I paid it. My kids don't pay a dime regardless. Typically and usually does NOT mean always. If you book enough rooms with 3 and 4 people, eventually you will run into this.
  14. Sounds like two geniuses. Happy married life. Glad he will be ok.
