This new round of cancellations bring us to 10 cancelled cruises.  I have 7 more booked.  Next one is annual prime I booked for DH birthday end of march.  We had same booking last mar and we all know what happened.

March 12th or 13th will be one year of no sailings.  

They must be hanging by a thread financially.  I'm surprised ncl and other smaller cruise lines are still surviving.

What a mess!!!

Not that I have read all the finance news on RCCL, but enough. Last quarter report burned through $1 billion. Since start of covid they have borrowed, issued more stock, and sold bonds. Just last week issued another $1 billion worth of stock. Some how hopes of vaccine keeps stock price up. Looks like a LOT of debt to me.

Yes, they are definitely getting deeper and deeper into debt as our many others.    A vaccine won't be the fix all for everything but hopefully it helps.      Stay safe!

Since the shutdown, Casino Royale has been offering us Junior Suites. Today's offer says "Love Upgrades.... we'll offer you a balcony and $200 off if you want to upgrade". Hmmm.... 

yes, the latest offer is nothing appealing.   I typically get offers for JS or Balconies.     My offers says "love upgrades I get an ocean view with $150 towards an upgrade"     Very small list of sailings, nothing of interest. 

I would love for a replacement cruise of my 12 night casino comp sailing that I would be on right now!

Yes bummer. I was supposed to be on an eleven night cruise NOW.

Got another offer. I didn't much check it.

NEWS Royal has sold Empress and Majesty of Seas. I checked sailings, and NOLA is gone for a port.

 

I was able to snag a Brilliance cruise for 12/19, four nights.  Like others,  I usually get JS offers, but this was for a balcony.  I upgraded to the spacious OV Balcony on the very aft of the ship, deck 9, for $44 pp ($88 total).  So far, 12 cancellations with six more booked - from late April (doubt this one happens) to December.  Really looking forward to getting back on a ship!

I saw new offer last night, unfortunately nothing appealing.  All the sailings are out of florida and I think one out of galveston.  Not worth for us to fly to FL for a 3 to 5 night cruise.   Dont want to book anymore b2b2bs till I know they will be allowed for US sailings

I keep hoping to receive offer to replace the 12 night cruise we lost in december.   That was a terrific offer!!

Since we live in Tampa, it made my choice pretty easy.  While the Allure is a better ship, we will sailing her in August (fingers crossed) and I might need a pre-holiday break.

Canaveral is a short drive away.  We grabbed Mariner 12/13 from this latest offer.

Agreed, but have cruises booked for the Mariner in July and September.  I like the Mariner, but four days on the Brilliance, leaving 15 minutes from my house, just sounded better.  Hope you have an awesome cruise.

Another Junior Suite offer with $450 towards an upgrade.  Getting these offers weekly and wish I could take them up....like everyone else.  We cant even fly out of Aust, maybe mid to late 2021.  Normally I would get them to switch an offer over to an Aust cruise, but doubt we will see cruise ships arriving here before end 2021.   

Last week I rec'd an email from Carnival/PO Aust casino VIP marketing manager.  Have known Sue from when she worked at RCCL so was so good to hear that they have returned to work.  At the moment they are waiting on CDNA and state recommendations as to when ships can restart.  Sounds like they may do local cruises.  Oh how nice it would be to start cruising again. 

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and hope the world becomes a kinder place for all

No real new offers for us despite emails to use some. Have 2 sitting in Club Royale account. All sailings are from Florida. Plus the cancelled Dec cruise we have not re-booked. Still debating on booking as have 3 upcoming in 2021 May, Aug, and Sep.

Looks like they added a line showing points earned for 2020. Is that a joke ? There were no sailings during the earning period.

Whatever happened to the trial cruises ?

As a matter of science. Portugal released 34 page last month calling the PCR swab test for covid-19 bogus.

RC cruises cancelled through April. But you can go on the website and enter your booking number to get your re-book offer. 

Where do you do this ?  clubroyaleoffers.com or the CWC site ?  I tried doing this on the ClubRoyale site and I got an error.  I called CR about 20 minutes ago and they said there were no options for moving our 2 cancelled April casino comp cruises.  I just cancelled them for a refund.

On the Club Royale website. I entered my name and booking number instead of my C+A number.

I tried that.  Nada.  At least I know I was doing the right thing.

Maybe try a different browser? Not sure why it is not working. I tried it around 9:30 AM as soon as I saw people talking on FB that Travel Agents had gotten the cancellation email. But I am surprised that the casino rep told you no options, I wonder if the rep was confused and thought it was Lift and Shift? Tis is a completely new list, 21GSS10-   The bad part, however, is that my new list has lower offers than what I had originally.

Thanks.  I will try a different browser next time.

 

The agent that I spoke with said that I had no new offers.  Only my annual 2020 tier level offer is listed.  I did ask if we would be getting new tier level comp cruises on 1 April and she said they had not come out with any guidance on that yet.  I'm not gonna hold my breath for that.

 

Are you Prime or Signature.  We are both Prime.
