  1. BTW if since I got bonus OBC for booking an actual cruise while on board (as opposed to just the FCD), do I lose the extra OBC if I change the fare from what I booked?
  2. It doesn't say what year final payment is due. Clearly it's 2021, not 2020 (since 6/10/21 would be 90 days before your sail date). They probably should show the year but it makes no sense that it would be 2020. You have to factor in the drink package in the value, and of course the gratuities. It was $2000 more for me with the all inclusive than with the other fare being shown and I also don't think it's worth it for me. Sadly, the lower fare is non-refundable, so I'm not going to switch to it right now.
  3. Breaking news -- they cancelled the visit to New York, supposedly due to the Coronavirus. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/22523-virgin-voyages-cancels-new-york-introduction.html
  4. The promotion has been extended thru 3/12. I have until 3/10 to transfer my reservation, so I guess I'm going to have to move it with the all-inclusive package and then change it.
  5. I think that you are VERY confused. You're either looking at a 2020 cruise, or misreading the final payment date. There is no way they'd take final payment 15 months in advance.
  6. That's odd since many people (including me) have taken videos of the BBO performers with no complaints.
  7. Well, they didn't send email since i'm on their list and did not get it. Probably publicized to some sites that target people younger than me. Or Instagram, as you said.
  8. As does Holland America, for the most part. And Oceania did have some self-service stuff (like sushi) when I was on Regatta. I think they're just trying to avoid the negative connotation that their target market probably has when they say "cruise ship buffet". Sorry for the duplicate posts, CC is acting up.
  9. The promotion is supposed to end tomorrow, 2/29. Any idea what will replace it? I booked under the promotion but still need to transfer it to a TA by 3/10 so I would like to change it before I do so. I don't want the current Restricted Fare since its non-refundable.
  10. Emily was great! Amusingly (although not for her, as you'll see), she was supposed to be the AM when we were on Koningsdam last June. When we boarded we were told that the AM had just been taken off the ship unexpectedly due to an injury, and they were without one for a week of the cruise. When we met her on a cruise in January and she told us about her injury we said we were on starting June 12th and she said yes, that was when she left!
  11. Remember that if your spouse has an American Express card, you can set up a separate login for them and add the offer to their card as well. AMEX card numbers are different for each person. Then you would be able to use their card number to redeem the offer a second time right now. If your spouse does NOT have a card, check to see if you have an offer from AMEX for $25 back if you get a card for an authorized user and order one. If if you don't have a bonus offer, it would be worth getting a card to be able to take advantage of the HAL offer. As others have said, if there is another offer once this one expires in March, you can use it on the same cruise.
