  1. When will you cruise again? Are you currently booked (on a "not-cancelled" date)? What changes will you make in future plans (ie. more land based travel, closer to home, or will you travel more?) We would have been on the Bliss leaving Sunday 5/31. We had already booked the Breakaway for 5/14/21 (ABC islands) and decided to add the Bliss Panama Canal for 2/4/22 using up some FCC. I think we'll do our annual Atlantis trips in October and January. If I can find a great deal, maybe try and rebook Alaska for next September.
  2. I also had 4 cruise next certs (exp. 11/4/21). Since we booked the Bliss Panama Canal for 2/22, I was able to have 2 added (with exp. dates extended to 2/22). Maybe try calling again?
  3. I love that by being spontaneous, you were able to take such a magical trip!
  4. We had 2 butlers that we felt really treated our family extra special. On our Escape cruise DH and I were in the H3, while the rest of our family had 3 balcony cabins. Our family always came and hung out in the suite. Our DIL was pregnant and didn't want to get off the ship (Zika virus concern at the time), so our Butler (Hippo) gave her his pager info and he would let her in the Haven and into our suite when we were in ports. He brought her lunch and checked on her during the day. And on the Sky we were again the only ones of our group in a suite. My 69 year old mother was recovering from a triple by-pass, 6 weeks prior, and our Butler would check in on her (she was 2 cabins down from our suite) and helped make her first cruise more comfortable. He even pushed her wheelchair up to dinner one night! I was so impressed that these 2 went out of their way for our "non-suite" family!
  5. We were booked on the Bliss 5/31 to Alaska - 100% + 25% FCC and 2 cruise next certificates returned. In February we had booked a 5/14/21, 9 day So. Caribbean on the Breakaway,. So yesterday I was able to have them reprice the 5/14/21 (with 20% discount) - and still ended up with a little over $10K in FCC left, so we booked the Bliss Panama Canal for 2/4/22. Does anyone know if the FCC (100%) can be applied to 2 cruises? We have a slight (2k) balance on the 5/14/21, but the FCC left in my account is $5,015. (We applied the other $5k (from DH account) to the Bliss). I'd rather split it to both balances and have nothing due on the So. Caribbean one). TIA-
  6. This is the best thing I have read today! Your DW is a lucky woman!
  7. I bought 8 Cruise Next certificates in 2017, primarily to use for our Alaska cruise (was 5/31). Since there was a double up promotion, I gave 2 each to 2 of our adult children (for said cruise). They have been returned to their Latitudes account. With other trips booked and limited vacation time, neither child will be using them before the expiration date of 12/21. Is it an easy process for those to be transferred back to me? I was hoping to use them on our upcoming 2021 Caribbean cruise and with the left-over FCC add a 2022 Panama Canal or Alaska.
  8. Each passenger will receive his/her own FCC. You should be able to log in to each person's latitude account on NCL. (Even our 3 and 1 year old grandchildren received them yesterday). My understanding however is that only the 1st passenger listed can apply for the full cash refund. HTH-
  9. Only the Jewel and the Joy are listed for Alaska in May now. The Bliss is no longer there.
  10. One piece of information that I can share (from our experience) is that your non-Haven guests can use the priority embarkation/disembarkation for ports, if you are traveling as a group. It has been very helpful to us (we travel in 2 Haven cabins and then usually 2-4 balcony cabins for our married children/grandchildren).
  11. Sounds like you both made the best of your 20 days on the high seas!
  12. We have 4 cabins booked for 5/31 Bliss. I think DH and I will take the FCC, as we already have a So. Caribbean booked for May, 2021, but the other 3 cabins are hoping for a refund. Maybe DH and I will make it to Alaska this year for his 50th, maybe we'll end up somewhere else this year. But we will cruise again!
  13. Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda... I can beat myself up for not pulling the plug on Friday. Or just be happy that I'm in under $11.50. Anyone else adding more when the price drops again?
  14. 1) Bliss (supposed to be 5/31 😞 ) 2) Encore 3) Jewel 4) Pearl 5) Breakaway (scheduled for 5/2021 So. Caribbean) I loved, loved, loved the Escape (Haven DOS) and my 4 days on the Sky (aft suite, prior to dry dock) were pretty amazing as well. I definitely prefer a Haven suite and a Thermal Spa (ship that has a Haven is a big +++).
  15. Vacation for me starts with a celebratory glass of bubbly. Then lunch at wherever is open for Haven (or suite) guests.
