  1. That depends... Have you told Carnival which future cruise you want the FCC applied to? If not, then the FCC is sitting in limbo on your original booking (i.e. the cruise that was canceled) and you won't be able to see it. However, if you have had the FCC applied to a new cruise, then you should be able to see it on the Cabin Confirmations email they send you at the time of booking. Garnett
  2. I have had the FCC and OBC moved to a previously booked cruise multiple times (like 7 or 8 times) since March of this year without any issues. Ive never been asked to move it to a "new" cruise. This surprises me and has not been my experience. Garnett
  3. From John Heald's Facebook page... Quick question John, I apologize if I've missed the answer. Have the November cruises from Port Canaveral filled up or have they been taken down/cancelled? We are scheduled to sail Nov 29 on the Breeze from Canaveral and had another couple trying to book but the sailings are no longer listed (they were yesterday). Thanks John Heald Hello, yes we have taken them down because I’ve reached the capacity we want to cruise with. If anything changes I will let you know and I really hope we see you very soon having fun again, cheers
  4. As of 30 minutes ago, I was able to see November 2020. However, November 2020 is not showing now. My speculation is that the cruises aren't cancelled...and that they MAY sail. I believe Carnival is being preemptive and is trying to stop people (like me) who just had their November/December cruise cancelled and are looking to see if they can switch to a Port Canaveral/Miami departure instead. Just a wild guess... Garnett
  5. Assuming Carnival cancelled the cruise, then this can be done. I've done this multiple times during the pandemic, so it shouldn't be an issue. However, if you initiate the cancellation, I'm not sure. Garnett
  6. Nor Tropicale (since we seem to have a trend going) 🙂
  7. In years gone past, Peter Knego used to go to Alang and literally procure container loads of "trinkets" and send them back to the US for resale. Here's his website https://www.midshipcentury.com/shop Having said that, he usually was focused on the former liners of a different era and I don't envision him showing much interest in either Carnival's or RCCL's former ships that are currently beached.

  8. I've booked several cruises (15+) since this pandemic began. The last two as recently as this week. In essence, I feel cruising will return in some form or another, but the bigger question to me is how will Carnival's financial downturn affect future pricing. Accordingly, after consulting with the wife, we decided to book multiple cruises between November 2020 and April 2023. At least we're locked in on the pricing in case prices start to escalate in the near future. Garnett
  9. Got it. Sorry, I misunderstood your post. Garnett
  10. I'm seeing Splendour cruises for the entire year of 2021. Lots of variety, including 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 day cruises. Of course, they're all from Australia, but nonetheless, they are visible to me. Garnett
  11. I think you may be referring to the Black Watch and Boudicca of Fred Olsen Cruises. FOC announced yesterday that both ships had been sold to a Turkish entity for use as accommodation vessels. In their announcement, FOC said: 'Following the recent announcement that Black Watch and Boudicca are retired from our fleet, we can announce that both ships have now been sold and will begin a new life as accommodation vessels for a company in Turkey. We expect that the ships will set sail soon, with Boudicca due to leave Rosyth for the final time as early as next week, and Black Watch to follow. The crew are hard at work preparing them for their journeys and ensuring that that they are ready for their new home. Both Black Watch and Boudicca have served us extremely well during their time with us, and we know that their new owners will be as proud of them as we have been. We are delighted that they will stay together, and will continue to be used and loved in the future. We're sure you will join us in wishing them a very fond farewell, and happy travels ahead!' Both ships were originally built for the Royal Viking Line back in the 1970's as the Royal Viking Star (1971) and Royal Viking Sky (1973). Garnett
  12. Noticed the Veracruz 1 docked alongside the Mardi Gras in this picture. I was on the Veracruz in 1982 and the Mardi Gras in 1984. While on the Veracruz, I remember when we docked in Cozumel beside Mardi Gras. I remember thing how huge the Mardi Gras seemed...even though she was only 27,000 tons. However, the Veracruz was only 10,000 tons.
  13. All kinds of screwy things happening with the Carnival website. I tried to book a late January 2020 cruise yesterday, but the website would only let the booking go through if I indicated only one person would be in the stateroom. If I increased the number, I would get a message indicating that no rooms were available for that amount of occupants. However, I emailed my PVP and he indicated that the sailing was available and made the booking for me and my wife (two people)....strange why the PVP could make the booking, but the website wouldn't let me. Garnett
  14. Relative to Miami (and the OP's desire to cruise from there), I see an 8 day cruise on the Freedom leaving on 12/23/22 that would cover the Christmas 2022 holiday. Alternatively, there is a 7 day cruise (Pride) leaving from Tampa and a 7 day cruise (Magic) leaving from Port Canaveral. Both of these also leave on 12/23/22. There are also a couple of 5 day cruises available...one of them leaves from Miami (Sunrise), leaving on 12/21/22. Additionally, there is a 5 day cruise from Jacksonville (Ecstasy) sailing on 12/21/22. Garnett
  15. Assuming you mean Christmas 2022, it looks to me like the cruises are , at least, partially posted. At a quick glance, I'm seeing cruises on the Miracle, Pride, Sunshine, etc. that cover the Christmas 2022 holiday. Not sure when the balance of the fleet's ships will post their Christmas itineraries. Garnett
