Wow! 2 weeks! Cruising nervana. I hope you get to sail too! What is your itinerary?

 

It's a very unique cruise and itinerary.  Goes to roatan, panama, Colombia, bonaire, curacao, san Juan, and nassau. I like the two week ones but they go by pretty  fast also

Too much up in the air right now for me to plan anything a month ahead, forget about a year into the future

 

Just book it, you'll make it happen 🛳🛳

I rebooked my cancelled May cruise for January. Same cruise out of San Juan except for one port that is different. 

I assume it is on the Fascination.  What port is cancelled?

At this point, I don't hear any indications that those things that cause the cancellations will change between now and the winter.  This isn't saying that nothing can or will change.  However, I am not tempted to book anything before next summer, and then that's only a temptation.  I will wait for confirmation (to my satisfaction) that cruising can resume without causing quarantines or confusion.  The sooner the better.

We have a March 2021 booked out of Miami.  We booked last month.  I figured that with March being 10 months away (at the time of booking), we'd be well into the resumption of cruise operations.  Now, with only nine months until March rolls around, I'm not so sure.  Like Butterbean,  I no longer have an opinion on when cruising will begin but I hope 2021 brings brighter days!

Voorhees, you must be from south jersey!  Im waiting for my October cruise to be cancelled. From there, we are 75% sure we are just taking the refund. We have another cruise booked via royal from 2019 in November out of san juan that if cancelled, we will just make it a land vacation and go to Culebra and Vieques for the week. We have a rescheduled rccl cruise in February which I think will go. I will go on my October cruise if it goes. 

Yep! Originally from South Jersey. Lived in Voorhees for 40 years. Moved to Georgia 6 years ago. I hope your October cruise happens!

I had an April cruised cancelled, so rebooked to September.  That one was cancelled, so rebooked to January with an excellent casino rate. I hope it sails. It sounds like your deal is good with $450 for 2 people and a $500 OBC.  I would definitely take the risk and book it.

I am hoping for the best.  It's strange not being able to cruise.  On the plus side, I am saving a lot of money not traveling.

Ours was the casino rate as well! I've never seen a promo with a $500 obc so i went ahead and booked it last night! I hope your January cruise sails. I miss cruising. Its my recharge.

Its the height of flu season. There is no way in hell a February cruise will sail. If the money is expendable and you have no other use for it, Carnival will appreciate it.

It's definitely not expendable, but unfortunately too late now.

Our September Horizon B2B was cancelled. Rebooked Horizon B2B for the end of February 2021. Sure hope it happens, getting tired of rebooking cruises.

be thankful you can rebook, it means you have the means to do it

We took the chance and booked the Shiprocked cruise at the end of Jan 2021. I’m hoping we will all be back to cruising by then, but you never know. We also have another cruise booked on Mardi Gras at the end of April 2021. Hopefully we will get to actually cruise on one of those cruises.

We have one booked for the end of January.  Someone mentioned earlier that they would have to pay me to go.  Well....They pretty much are paying us about $75 to go, other than the flights, of course.  The deal was too good to pass up.  Plus, I just needed something to look forward to, even if it does get cancelled.  A girl can dream, right?

Our March cruise was cancelled - rebooked for early January.  Not so sure Breeze (or any other ship) will sail.  Even if it does, not sure I will be on her unless covid19 is under control.  Between that and flu season I don't thing I would chance going on a ship.   I am only 14 days away from diamond and would have been there by now had things been "normal."

We had a 4-night from Tampa with kids and grandkids booked before the virus was a thing...then we decided that we would need a vacation after cruising with 6 grands, so we booked one on the day we return from Jacksonville!!  Hopeful that our Paradise cruise is not delayed getting in so we can get to JAX in time to leave for the next one.  Assuming that it happens, it will be our first side-by-side.

We booked the Mardi Gras for February 20th right when they first started taking bookings on her.  Now we have doubts that it will even sail with the virus seeming to get worse instead of better.  That and if cruising even does start back up again, what will the changes to cruising be like?  Will the ports even be allowing ships to come in by then?  At this point, who knows what the future holds?

I had a free balcony offer on Panorama on 2/27 that will cost 130 after the OBC. So I jumped on just because it is too good to say no. Sooner or later a ship will leave the harbor with me aboard.

 

The good life lies just ahead!

Added the 2/13/21 Panorama cruise to my schedule a few days ago. Still have 10/9/20 and 11/14/20 cruises booked that we are still hoping to sail on. I’ll just keep on booking till we cruise, cancellations be damned😁

I'm on the verge of booking a Feb. 15, 2021 cruise out of Charleston to the Bahamas on the Sunshine. The price and the OBC was too good to pass up. I'm interested in seeing what everyone else is doing. I know times are uncertain, I'm just curious. Y'all are so good at giving advice!

 

Thanks!

 

After 3 cancellations out of Charleston in 2020, I took the $300 OBC x 3 and FCC and ran. . .to November/December 2021 and February 2022.  In April, I might would have thought February 2021 would be a good choice, but now I'm not so sure,  but I hope it works out for you.
