  1. I just rescheduled our cancelled April/2020 cruise to April/2021....I picked out what trip to book next year, made one call to Carnival to rebook...the agent handled the cancellation and rebooking during that call...Today, less than 24 hours later, I have an email from Carnival which shows the new booking including the FCC being applied as well as the OBC waiting for our room….I was told to be patient by the rep yesterday for the email so was totally surprised how quickly this was handled...Just wanted to post a great experience with Carnival in getting this taken care of so fast!!!
  2. I actually had a voicemail from Carnival today offering to help me with my 4/18/20 cruise which was canceled.. They left a number to return the call.. We are planning to rebook for next year. We'll see how this return call goes.. I was just surprised to receive that call after so many not being able to get through such a short time ago.
  3. We are booked on Dream out of Galveston on 4/18/20...one week post the current cancellations..We have never received any of the emails with the offer to cancel and rebook with OBC by 3/31/20 but I have seen them posted here....we do,however, continue to get emails about excursions and how many days left to cruise...Obviously, we feel this will be cancelled as well, that being said, if Carnival cancels, they are offering double the OBC than if we cancel first.. so it is a waiting game at this point to choose the best offer...The above cancellation memo from Carnival states that the offer is also extended to those that had already cancelled their trip prior to Carnival cancelling it...am I reading this properly in that even if we cancel by 3/31 with the $150 OBC offer (5 day trip) and then Carnival extends their cancellations to include this date that we can then receive the $300 OBC offer ?(assuming they offer the same cancellation policy on future cruises booked before 3/6/20) any thoughts?
  4. we are booked 4/18/20...does original email stating cx by end of march and rebook offers still apply? almost wish ours fell in the dates cancelled so we could just rebook with the OBC and move on . hopefully if they are going to extend the "postponed" dates they do it before we reach the end of March deadline assuming it still applies.
  5. just realized this is only for 3 days and our cruise is in mid April so I guess we wait? not sure how these 3 days are gonna be any different than a week, month..etc from now
  6. I'm confused if this means ANYONE with diabetes regardless of age(under 70)... or age of 70 with diabetes...we are supposed to be cruising on 4/18 so need to make some decisions...also, we have not received any of the emails as well so only getting info through this forum...thanks so much!
  7. supposed to sail 4/18/20 out of Galveston...no email about the OBC yet...unsure we can go as my husbands work has now issued an automatic 2 week quarantine upon return if we go on the cruise. (UGH!!). Since it looks like we will have until 3/31 to make a decision, I will wait until the last minute in hopes things get better! By then, the cruise ship may be the safest place with all the pre-board screening and disinfecting being done.
  8. so we leave on the Liberty next trip out (Sunday)..any way to find out about the "maintenance" issue?..I was watching the cruise cam and saw it was still there way past the 4pm scheduled departure.
  9. I understand you receive a special cup for the unlimited sodas with the nonalcohol beverage package and it activates the freestyle soda machines, but how are the coffees/frapps, etc served? do you have to take the same soda cup to the coffee shop for those?..I don't want to carry that around with me everywhere and I don't really want my coffee in the same one either...I guess this same question applies to the mocktails as well..I don't even really care about sodas, but I'm not gonna argue about punches on the coffee cards as it seems to be an issue and makes the coffee card not worth purchasing..also , it seems the frapps have been excluded from the coffee card..we will be on the Liberty next week and I'm trying to decide on purchasing beverage packages for everyone..
  10. The premium beverage package which does not include alcohol lists premium coffee except anything from Starbucks...so is there another option for lattes, etc. that is available on the ship? I don't need starbucks, but regular coffee is free so what are the premium coffees available and where do you get them? also, are they unlimited like the sodas?
  11. Thank you so much!...exactly the info I was looking for...We live in Tyler, Tx and will be driving to Galveston Saturday, leaving Sunday, 8/11/19 . We will be staying at Inn at the Waterpark as they allow us to park there free during the cruise and will shuttle us to and from the port..We've done this in the past but have only cruised on Carnival...sounds like the same routine as far as boarding day lunch goes...same scenario with the crowded buffet..glad to know there are a couple options as you have to drag your carryons around.
  12. First trip on RCCL and we are wanting to know what options are available for lunch when you board the ship around noon and don't leave until 4p...not interested in the specialty upgrade options, just the "free" stuff
