  1. I'm out too. After 4 cancelled cruises, I decided in June to rebook our September 2021 Back-to-Back out to April 2024. If I can't cruise and relax the way I did pre-Covid, then I really don't have much interest. Hopefully, three years from now we will be past Covid and cruise like before.
  2. We had six Carnival cruises booked before Covid. Four have been cancelled. The last two were B2B's starting September 19 out of NOLA. We rescheduled these two September Carnival cruises out of NOLA to April 2024, still keeping a B2B, and basically the same itinerary. How far into the future do y'all feel comfortable cruising again ?
  3. The 2 cruises I booked are B2B's in September, from New Orleans. Was going to visit New Orleans for a week ahead of the B2B's.
  4. I'm happy to have my May cruise cancelled. I really don't think I will be ready for cruising again ( and airlines ) until at least 2023. Having said that, I still have 2 cruises booked for September 2021. Wonder what the odds are that they will be cancelled too ?
  5. Just checked... I only see one cruise for May -- May 27 out of Jacksonville FL. None of the other previous May cruises show.So that looks like my May 8th cruise has been cancelled. waiting for a notice now.

  8. I see all these ships still scheduled for May cruises...
  9. Norwegian Cruise Line is extending its suspensions through May 31.
  10. It rises and falls a lot every day. Someone could make a lot of money on the arbitrage if they focused.
  11. The article was saying the cost is less than a penny per straw. To compare, straws cost 0.4 cents each when you purchase a box of 3000 straws from a big box store.
  12. My Final payment date for my May 8 cruse is March 25 ( I had it pushed out from early February ). I'm going to wait for the cruise to actually be cancelled. My concern is getting a refund of my travel insurance ($175). If I cancel the cruise, can I also get a refund on my travel insurance or am I out of luck on that refund since I'm the one who cancelled ?
  13. Call Carnival and get your final payment date moved out to Mid March... which is what I did for my May 8th cruise -- moved out to March 25.
  14. Was just reading about this new biodegradable straw... sounds like a ray of hope: Dunkin partners with Wincup to test biodegradable straw as more companies go green (yahoo.com)
  15. I see why the dates do not come up for the 8 day cruises... they do not currently meet CDC guidelines -- cruises can not be any longer that 7 days thru October 31, 2021.
  16. It looks like there is no such sailing on Aug 21, which appears to be causing this issue for you. These are the only dates I see in August for Horizon. All the 8 day cruises are missing.
  17. Waiting for 2023 USA cruises to open up... will kick my two Sept 2021 cruises ( B2B ) to 2023 when that happens.
  18. Call again. I had my final payment for my May 8th cruise pushed out to March 25... it was Jan 24th, which is 45 days before the cruise. I'm feel'n 100% sure that May cruises will be cancelled.
  19. I called this week. I got my May 8th cruise final payment date moved out to March 25. I anticipate May cruises will be cancelled.
  20. Sooooo hoping that they cancel thru the end of September 2021. I really would like a refund on my three 2021 cruises I booked before the pandemic, as 2023 would be the earliest year I would consider cruising again... I want the pandemic well behind us before I sit on a fairly densely crowded ship. I do plan on cruising again as I love to cruise.
  21. This math is flawed. The price of the drink package has nothing to do with tipping, other than to determine the initial 18% Tip, which is $9.35. The correct calculation is the total amount tipped divided by the number of drinks purchased divided by the price of a drink. That is, (9.35 + number of drinks) / number of drinks / price of a drink. So using your examples (and assuming an average drink price of $9.95): 5 drinks: (9.35 + 5) / 5 / 9.95 = 28.84% 10 drinks: (9.35 + 10) / 10 / 9.95 = 19.45% 15 drinks: (9.35 + 15.00) / 15 / 9.95 = 16.31% So... 12 drinks comes closest at keeping with the 18% Tip: 12 drinks: (9.35 + 12.00) / 12 / 9.95 = 17.88%
  22. Yup... it's always been that way. The board reviews this perk once each year and votes to keep it or not.
