I thought the cruises that one can use the 125% are more expensive. S&L offer price protection. 

They can be used on anything.  Not all are more expensive.  If you plan it right you can book an older ship and switch it to a newer ship that has higher pricing.

Yes, I have been working out how to take advantage of some options they are offering.  I found some very nice pricing on some JS's and booked then did a lift and switch. 

Nice if you can use it to upgrade and get double points. I was told in uk, if the fcc os more than the cruise, you will receive the difference in another fcc

I just had my Alaska 2020 cruise cancelled.  Took the 125% fcc

 

Rebooked  next year for just about the same price I paid for 2020 (I caught a really good resident rate in Feb)  I end up with an extra $2000 in OBC.  Made a lot more sense than the S&L

That is true but watch your timing.  The new FCC is not issued until 30 days after the cruise it is used on so you may have a limited time frame to use it.

RCCL filed their 10Q with the SEC:

No change in the delivery dates of the ships through 2025 from annual filing in February.

I found that interesting because on the investor call they mentioned some delays due to shipyard shutdowns and some supplier issues.

The accountants who prepare the SEC filling probably didn't get the word yet about any delays - I assume on the next quarterly submission they'll have info on any delays.

Because their largest market has decided that it doesn’t matter how many people die as long as we can get our hair done.  

 

 

Plus they have already backed down from closing the buffets or upper tier Lounges.  Bayley now says things will be back to normal after a while.

They will only have a 6 billon dollar loss for 2020, things are looking up. Did you get stopped out of your Moderna, if not the question is Why ???

No still holding on to Moderna, not sure why but I'm still hoping it rebounds one more time before bailing out. I'm still up $800 on it.

I’ve been told 21 days in U.K. ... and we have exactly 21 days between the end of cruise 1 and final payment date for cruise 2 ! Both cruises are booked direct so they can sort it out I’m sure!

They should be able to work that out.  Things should slow down by then.

The RCCL SEC filing for the outcome of their annual stockholder meeting had some interesting info:

Thanks for posting the link and not posting the content of the link, changing the font size, so it takes pages of scrolling. 😇
