Just looked at my sailing 3/22. Joy Mexican riviera.  Every category sold out

I did my daily look-up on the 3/22 sailing at lunch to count open cabins again.

 Occupancy is now at 61%.  Over 690 open cabins (200 more than yesterday).

But as we're all seeing, NCL has suspended March bookings despite plenty of open cabins.

Where are you able to see the current occupancy?

 

 

 

Nowhere right now! But usually by doing mock bookings on TA sites and counting up the available rooms.

Sunday morning. *fingers crossed*

I hope you get a final answer on both legs before you leave the house Sunday.  Your planned trip sounds amazing.

When I last checked my 3/15 Bliss sailing out of NYC around 11:00EDT, there were 1139 open rooms, which puts the ship at 44% full.

Possibly not related, but there's a thread on the RCI board about a crew member (possibly entertainment?) posting on Facebook that she's out of a job for two months.

Perhaps has to do with Mr. Trump's announcement today? Perhaps NCL is finding that their potential profit no longer outweighs the risks? Perhaps it's just a glitch? Perhaps NCL is changing the pricing model? I tried a cruise place on the web for non-NCL cruises, and it seemed ok.

28th Breakaway sailing to the Caribbean (the cruise I currently have booked...but currently don't know if I am taking) is still showing rooms available.

 

And just like that this sailing is showing sold out.  

 

Something is definitely happening.

I have been able to find some sailings in APril that are available to book. Looks like the cut-off is the week of 4/12.... those sailings are unavailable, but later in April are available.

Let’s all relax till we hear. Their systems are probably overloaded like the stock markets and might just temporarily be down

I’m glad you looked elsewhere.  Guessing they’ve stopped everything owning the prez conference  I just got an email that my Excursions have been cancelled

30 day increments of shut down?  Same as the 30 day travel ban from Europe?  

 

Wonder if that will be part of Trump's announcement today?  30 day ban on all cruise ships.  Would tie in with @JamieLogical saying 4/12 you can book.

Yup, this is a signal for sure!

 

After I cancelled our upcoming cruise (was to leave this Sunday), I checked NCL and did a fake booking for the Getaway..."Surprise" there were several newly available Haven cabins for what was previously sold out.   At least 5 or 6 in the Aft were available (just Haven).

 

But I went on last night and they were all "sold".  I was like - wow I missed a fire sale on Haven cabins!!!...thinking not so much now.

Wow! Emails to cancel Shore Excursions seems like a sign.

My transatlantic is scheduled for 4/23 - it is going to be so disappointing if these potential cancellations don't include the TA cruises.    I guess we wait and see.

I can still go in and book excursions for my 3/15 and 3/22 sailings at least....

 

I just, 5 minutes ago, booked Cagneys for my 3/22 on the Bliss!  Go figure!

I have to edit my post.  It was one excursion and the email offered other available excursions.  I did not try to book a new one 🙄

I can no longer find it but someone on FB posted a letter from the Senate to NCL regarding their miscommunication to customers as well as strongly urging them to suspend sailings. I should have taken a screen shot.

Interesting, if you go to RCL’s site and try to book no cruises are appearing until mid April.

Thanks for this. I was wondering if RCL and CCL were still taking bookings.
