FCC used, and new cruise cancels. What's the policy on FCC?

Recommended Posts

So I have a bunch of FCC's, at 125% of the fares from a string of cancellations this spring.

I feel like I hit the jackpot, stock market crashed, but I made 25% that day on my "Cruise Investment Account"  LOL. 

I have been looking at the Summit East Coast sailings June/July with Charleston  and Boston on the call list.

If I use these FCC's on them and they cancel, will I get new 125% FCCs based on the new fare I booked?

With Carnival canceling till August, I'm thinking of doubling down.....

As I understand it, you can't use "a bunch of FCCs" on a single booking. If you and a booked partner were each issued an FCC as a result of a cancellation, both can be applied to the new booking, but you can't apply FCCs from multiple cancellations to a single new booking.


If the new booking is cancelled, you get your FCC back, not a new one with a further 25% increase. Any further FCCs issued based on any portion of your fare that was paid in cash would be at 125%.


The rules on FCCs seem to change regularly, so no guarantee that my answer would be the same a week from now!

Cle - I would be getting some refunds.  The chance of cruises this year are slim.  If cruises resume what happens if there is a single case of covid?  Are you willing to risk a quarantine or worse?

The forced demand through 2021 will keep prices high and eat up all of those 125% FCCs.

Ok, so the only additional "profit" would come thru on the on the overage paid in new money if I get this, which seems fair.

I'm looking at a string of B2B's on Sillie January 2021 - June  from South America to Med, Europe and Iceland, no duplicate itineraries, and very few duplicate ports along the way.
