  1. I had 4 separate payments with 2 different Chase cards for April 16th cruise, asked for a refund, now I am thinking I should contact my TA and have the FCC applied to a new cruise for Sept 2021. I will post if I am successful in reversing the refund for a credit.
  2. Updated May 20, 2020 Your safety is our #1 priority—both on and off our ships. Due to the current global environment, we are extending the suspension of all sailings across our fleet through July 31, 2020.

  6. Glad that worked.. as suggested , even here in the US ,Delta is resisting a refund and I advised the same to my friend who had her flight canceled for June 4th.
  7. https://loyaltylobby.com/2020/05/13/us-dot-reminds-airlines-again-about-refunds/?omhide=true 1. What rights do passengers have if an airline cancels a flight or makes a significant schedule change? What is a “significant change” or “cancellation” requiring a refund? 2. What rights do passengers have if they choose not to travel due to safety or health concerns related to the COVID-19 public health emergency? 3. What rights do passengers have if they purchased their airline ticket from an online travel agency? 4. May airlines and ticket agents retroactively apply new refund policies? 5. May airlines or ticket agents offer credits or vouchers to consumers in lieu of refunds? 6. How quickly must airlines and ticket agents process refunds?
  8. Are these the links ? this is what I am seeing. https://www.transportation.gov/airconsumer/latest-news https://www.transportation.gov/airconsumer/FAQ_refunds_may_12_2020 https://www.transportation.gov/sites/dot.gov/files/2020-05/Refunds - Second Enforcement Notice (May 12 2020).pdf
  9. I clicked on this thread thinking everyone was talking about this recent development. https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5340/?et_cid=3330266&et_rid=17543101&et_referrer=Contest_PaulGauguin_May2013 "I'm not the one who's going to determine when we start or not," he said. "It's going to be primarily the CDC working with the U.S. Coast Guard. The CDC is really the number one gatekeeper here." Del Rio said that he envisioned "as much testing as possible," particularly for the crew, on an ongoing basis. The company is also working on more frequent and intense cleaning and disinfecting protocols. An expanded medical center seems likely, with more doctors and nurses on staff, Del Rio said. An isolation area will be included, in the event that anyone does become infected onboard. Del Rio touted the number of balcony cabins on his fleet of ships, which has a significant number of new builds. More balcony cabins mean better access to fresh air, he said. He also said that the company was looking at rerouting air conditioning ducts and putting in "a much more effective air filtering system." "Quite frankly, whatever the CDC standards are, we want to do even better," Del Rio said. "This is not an optical exercise that we want to do the minimum required. We want to do whatever it is that we need to do so that I can look my children in the eye, my mother in the eye, and say it is safe to go on boarding Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings ship; and so we're doing everything we can. ...We're willing to invest in whatever emerging technologies there may be, and there are many. "All these things take it as a whole, comprehensive and robust, give us the confidence that we can provide a very safe environment. A cruise ship is a controlled environment. If we do this right, I believe cruise ships will be safer than the general population is out in the marketplace." Del Rio said he would start sailing with ships on all three of his lines, albeit in smaller numbers. "The working plan that we have today is in month One ... it would be three Norwegian vessels, one Oceania vessel and one Regent vessel," with the number of ships sailing increasing gradually as momentum builds, he said. As for when that might be, Del Rio said that "reasonable expectations" pointed to late in quarter three (September) or early quarter four (October through December). He said that it would take six months or so to get the entire company fleet back into service.
  10. Doesn't look like they fall under the DOT rules but if so you need to submit a claim, also dispute it ( the charge) on your credit card even if you have paid for it last year. https://onemileatatime.com/canada-refund-flight-cancelled/
  11. Plus the numerous ports you will be visiting once again exposed to crowds in a bus etc...
  12. I am not booked till Oct 2021 having canceled ( mentally) an Aug/Sept Europe cruise and have possible look at an April 2021. It depends so much on ports being open, the procedures and protocol for disinfecting, the number of Dr.s on board a ship, the airlines being able to fly to Europe or not.. presently they are looking at shut down till Sept. and more importantly whether the number of infections are down worldwide.
  13. I think it depends where you are going.. Caribbean likely better odds than Europe.
