  1. Yeah. The Epic moved from Nassau to Miami yesterday. Just a guess for provisioning.
  2. She has been vacationing in the Bahamas. Her last report was that she went to sea on 3/29 and returned on 3/30.
  3. Would it be better to close your store because It is non-essential and you out of a job?
  4. Instructions for a cash refund were in the letter sent to people.... if they took time to read the letter.... See letter above.... nothing slimy or unethical
  5. CDC actually has identified multiple NCL ships with COVID-19 cases onboard or post-cruise. Norwegian Bliss (Mar 1-15) Norwegian Breakaway (Feb 28-Mar 14) Norwegian Pride of America (Feb 29-Mar 7) https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/cruise-ship/what-cdc-is-doing.html
  6. Flattening just means that the growth of the spread is stabilizing. New York still has over 1000 people being admitted to the hospital EVERY DAY. They still have 600 people who die EVERY DAY. And over 8000 new cases EVERY DAY.
  7. You do realize that FDR is not the CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. Harry Sommer (and Andy Stuart before him) is the CEO of NCL and is responsible for management decisions.
  8. Day passes are sold at the discretion of the Spa, and usually on slow port days only. If the weekly passes are sold out or close to sold out, day passes are not sold. Weekly passes are sold for a couple of hundred bucks. A little more on some ships.
  9. Hmmm,,, our cruise cancelled on 30 Mar 20 with the second round of suspensions. We got our FCC offer on 03 Apr 20.
  10. Lucky. There is no business reason to keep a full sales force when very few people are buying cruises.
  11. Second round of cancellations sent out an email with a generic letter with details of the second round of cruise cancellations. Followed a week later by an email your specific FCC deal (and specific dollar amounts). The generic letter (dated and sent on 3/30/20) with the link to the cash refund looked like:
  12. Airlines will automatically rebook you when flights cancel or are delayed. That particular airline will give you credit for any cancelled flights. During the current period, you will not be charged the $200 cancellation fee for flights cancelled. There are no cash refunds unless you purchased a refundable ticket. Similar to cruise fares, you agree to a sales contract when you purchase your airline ticket. Bought your ticket before March 1, 2020, for travel through May 31, 2020, you can rebook without change fees. Booked your trip March 1 – April 30, 2020, for all future travel, you can also change your reservation at a later date without change fees.
  13. We would NOT use a dining credit for a BBQ (where you don't have a real smoker - no open flames). Bisto is good. Most people would pick Cagney's. We are not big Cagney's fans lately. From your list, we would go to Onda. You can find menus to browse through on the link below
  14. If you unilaterally cancelled the cruise yourself (which it sound like you did), you get the FCC under the Piece of Mind. If you allowed NCL to cancel the cruise, you would have got an email with a link to request a cash refund of 100%. Most people waited for NCL to cancel the cruise so they had the option of a cash refund. Guests who were booked on suspended cruises will automatically receive a 125% or 150% refund of their cruise fare in the form of a Future Cruise Credit which can be applied towards any Norwegian Cruise Line voyage through December 31, 2022. Future Cruise Credits will be applied to your account by April 1, 2020. EMBARKATION DATES FUTURE CRUISE CREDIT March 13 to March 17, 2020 150% of cruise fare March 18 to May 10, 2020 125% of cruise fare We’re also giving an additional 20% discount when you book by April 14, 2020 using your Future Cruise Credit on cruises embarking July 1, 2020 - December 31, 2022! The discount will be automatically applied when you make your reservation, including when you book online. Guests who prefer to not take advantage of a future cruise credit can elect to receive a lesser refund to the original form of payment 90 days after submitting the Refund Form below. Refund requests must be submitted by April 27, 2020 for all suspended sailings. Please note that if your suspended sailing was scheduled to embark between April 12 - May 10, 2020, you will be able to request your refund through this form starting April 13, 2020.
  15. If you plan to cruise in NCL again in the next two years, take the FCC. If you believe that NCL will go bankrupt and take your money, take the cash and run. Those are the choices.
