  1. I called sometime in March and opted for the FCC, but my new booking was almost $800 less so I was told the balance would be refunded to my credit card, along with shore excursions, internet package, spa package etc. I was told it would be about 90 days. So I waited patiently, no need to fret and stew, file chargebacks or get frustrated. I got all my refunds now and everything is accounted for, well within the window they told everyone at the beginning of this. Patience is a virtue. 😉
  2. I just find it really hard to believe that every cruise out of every port is sold out/unavailable through September.. this feels like what happened both times before when they cancelled cruises. I think the 'inventory control' story is just that- a story to buy time until Carnival is able to release an official announcement, maybe on Monday. Definitely not trying to be a pessimist. I have a cruise booked for October (rescheduled from cancelled May 9th cruise). I hope I'm wrong! I'm dying to cruise again and I want to see the ships sail and things go back to normal. I want to live vicariously through all of you until it's my turn! I'm dying to read all the trip reports and see pictures and "live from" threads again. But just in case I'm right, I went ahead and booked my spa pass and will probably pull the trigger on my excursions before Monday. Because if they do cancel through September, all those people are probably going to reschedule for fall and I don't want to miss the chance on booking things before they sell out. Anyone who has cruises booked for this fall/winter might want to consider doing the same. Especially with reduced capacity rules.
  3. They probably are marking every other cabin as 'sold' to ensure they sail at 50% capacity and to make sure people don't book cabins next to each other- which will make the ship look full when it really isn't.
  4. But what about the 100 day No Sail order that lasts til nearly August?
  5. It took about 7-10 days for everything to transfer over and show up in the booking. But yes, now I'm showing a $0 balance due and $650 OBC (the other $50 came with the new booking.) I don't deal with travel agents, I do all my bookings direct with Carnival. For the refunds, they said that would take about 90 days, so I'm not looking for that anytime soon.
  6. I rebooked my cruise for October 2020. It was hundreds of $ less than the original booking. I got a new cruise set up in the same category, near my original room, $750 being refunded to my credit card for the overage and $600 OBC.
  7. Just an update on this in case anyone else is tracking this against their own booking- the $964 dropped off my booking today and I now have a $0 balance, and my $600 OBC is now showing on my booking.
  8. Thank you all! I was hoping that was the case and I feel much better now. Final payment isn't until July, so there is plenty of time for it to get sorted. And no, I don't see my OBC yet, but I just called them this past week, so it'll be some time. I was given a reference number, though.
  9. Thanks, it's still very confusing to me. Carnival said we'd be getting a 100% FCC, so if my new cruise was almost $600 LESS than my original booking, I'm confused why I owe over $900. I shouldn't owe a penny- they owe me money back. I'm hoping it's something that's supposed to clear off the booking within 7 days but yeah, I guess I'll try calling in a few days if it hasn't. I was hoping to hear if other people are seeing the same, in the event that their new booking is LESS than the cancelled one. It sounds like the case for a couple of you.
  10. Can someone help me understand this? I called the other evening and got through fairly quickly. The woman that helped me was very helpful and got pretty much everything done as far as moving my FCC from my old booking over to my new one in October, and gave me a reference number.. I was a little confused as she was going through all the numbers with me and coming up with oddball amounts that didn't seem to match anything. My Original booking for May 9th was a total of $2357.14. My NEW booking for October 3rd is a total of $1817.14. I paid a $250 deposit on my new booking before I called. The agent said there is normally a $964 penalty for canceling, but they are of course waiving that. She filled out the form on her end and moved my FCC from my old booking to my new booking and applied my $600 OBC, which I think she said might take 7 days to show up. She said for the difference in amount, a refund of $790 would be refunded back to my credit card within 90 days. ($540 for the price difference in booking + $250 deposit = $790, so that part checks out.) But now it says on my new booking that my final payment amount to be billed in July is $964. I wonder if that will drop off in a few days, or if it was a mistake, or what the deal is with that? I'm a little concerned. Has anyone else had a similar problem if you rebooked for hundreds less than your original booking, but you're still seeing a balance due? I don't even understand where the $853.14 under payment received came from, she even read off to me that my other booking that was being canceled was $2357.14.

  12. Maybe you're having internet problems. The only thing grayed out on the Carnival website is January and February 2020.
  13. Thanks, I thought your post was the response to the crew member post.
  14. What did the crew member post say? I'm not seeing it here and don't see it on FB
  15. I'm really hoping this is true. It's being heavily circulated on social media. People who called Carnival were told it wasn't real, however, if it's dated tomorrow then it might not be made official until then and the agents answering the phones might not know about it yet. Someone else just said that Princess announced a similar thing. I haven't checked to see if that's true or not. Hoping this will pop up in my email tomorrow. I'm sailing on May 9th with no plans to cancel, so $200 OBC would be great!
