Got my refund today for my sundries from March request , I guess they didn’t want to hang on to my flat champagne and mouldy chocolate covered strawberries 😂 anymore just now waiting for my excursions for the Iona may cruise paid for , so I’m getting them still but will possibly start all again for my 18th October cruise which was all paid up 😔

Pleased to hear you finally got your Sundries refund for March.

Hopefully May Sundries are forthcoming.

I wonder when or if your October 18th cruise is cancelled.

From a cynical point of view, P and O will have waited until everyone paid the balance which was last monday before cancelling 18 October cruise. We waited until tuesday in the hope they would cancel so we would get our deposit back but in the end decided to transfer to a cruise next year.

Good decision imo.

Even if cruising started again in October it would be risky and stressful.

End of November is the date we have a large final payment to make and there is a very good chance I will move our deposit to a later cruise.

Great news.

Just shows its not only P&O dragging their feet on Refunds etc.

Some long waits reported on RCL boards too.

Get in the queue behind me please Graham, I’m still waiting for March cancellation sundries (along with others).

 

I got into the 100 days club, at this rate I will be starting a 150 days one! 
 

It seems that P&O are focusing on the cruise fare repayments and I can see why they would do that. People are less likely to take action for a few hundred pounds for extras but they certainly will for thousands of pounds for a fare. Having spoken to staff the sundries are on a different “spreadsheet”. I still can’t comprehend a major company managing refunds via spreadsheets.

 

What annoys me is that they are still peddling the pretence that refunds are being made in 60 days. While some certainly are (now) as we can see from comments on here, many are not.

I was answering Purdey16 in my post 3951.

All our cruise,flight and hotel Refunds are with us now thankfully.

I agree with you their organisation of refunds has been pathetic and I sincerely hope your outstanding refunds are with you shortly.

Graham.

P&o Cruises said on call that did not receive the deposit payment $135 from my giant US agent (3 letters) for my cancelled Oceana Cruise.(ship sold).

The call centre executive said that in my Oceana booking there is NO payment seen at all.

 

While my agent says that they wired the deposit ($135) to P&O in GB pounds and now they have to wait for p&o to refund the deposit to them and only then can they refund my credit card.

 

my credit card statement shows that the money went to the agent and the agent says that ONLY for P&O, they have to take the payment into their account in US$ and wire P&O in pounds.

 

The agent said that for all other cruise lines, the deposit goes directly to the cruise line.

Have been waiting more than 120 days for my refund. This is for the full amount of the cruise almost £3,000. Anyone else been waiting this long for full refund?

In terms of a full refund for a cruise, the worst that have seen so far is 137 days.. for sundries there are lots still waiting for this period and longer.

My giant US agent today refunded my 135 dollars for the cancelled Oceana Cruise, within just 1 week after asking.

I really appreciate it!

in this day and age, why don't they use direct bank transfer instead of sending checks by post !

Because they wouldn’t then be able to use the “cheque’s lost in the post” excuse

One guy on FB has had his cheque lost in the post 3 times now can anyone beat that?

The old "cheques in the post" excuse. At least it different from the usual excuses.

How about:

 

We have made an electronic bank transfer, but unfortunately the internet fairies have stolen the money and spent it on a wild drunken non-socially distanced party with the pixies.

Our Friends have been waiting for a refund 130 days and still waiting for a P and O CRUISE, but  ( TA Eskimo ) you know who they are,  just keep ignoring people.   

If it was the other way around, they would soon won't our money or it would be a cancelled cruise.
