  1. It was the outstanding fare, put back on my credit card. We had previously received the refund of fees.
  2. @Bluewake @dexddd we got our full refund today. Happy one year anniversary! I hope you get yours too. Quite a nice surprise to see this morning.
  3. Not sure if you were asking me, but we did get our taxes and fees really quickly, if I recall. Then, eventually an incorrect FCC and the TA has been working on it ever since. "happy" anniversary Bluewake and dexddd. My one year mark is 3/15. Good luck to us all.
  4. Two weeks shy of a year since my March 2020 cruise was canceled. Closest we came to getting anything was an FCC that was 100% and not the promised 125%. While efforts were supposedly in progress to find and apply the additional 25% to a new cruise, that new cruise was also canceled. TA confirmed that we could now request a refund of the original amount and has submitted that request multiple times since November, but still no refund. Just posting because... well. Still waiting. Thinking about the new money we are spending on this year's spring break, a year later. Would be nice
  5. I had trouble getting the full FCC amount from last March applied to last December. Then the December cancelled before it was resolved, have not gotten any FCC. I do not recommend tying up any money with MSC.
  6. I'm seeing on social media that March 2020 cruisers have been getting refunds this week. Maybe it's a "batch" getting sent out. Good luck everyone, maybe we'll be in it...
  7. Yes, that's how I understand it is supposed to be. My TA thinks that we will be an exception because of our previous negotiations and the clout of her parent agency. I'm just trusting her at this point, but I'm not exactly optimistic. Not much I can do anyway. I tried to use the FCC as instructed and that didn't work out, so... I hope you get to use your credit in 2022. Good luck! Booked an all-inclusive in Mexico for this spring break. Needed something to look forward to!
  8. No movement on my FCC/refund. I just heard from my TA yesterday asking if I'd received anything because she hadn't and she was going to be checking with them again. She's got it in her calendar every two weeks to contact MSC. We had tried to use the FCC from our March 2020 cruise for a Dec 2020 cruise, but it was "complicated." The Dec 2020 cruise was canceled before they had all the issues figured out, but they were going to make it work. Nothing from MSC since the Dec 2020 cruise was canceled, but my TA is trying to get a refund because the FCC was such a mess. Sadly, just want t
  9. Never officially got my 25% additional FCC, but was promised that it would be manually applied to my December cruise, which is now canceled. We went through multiple levels of escalation to get that cruise held with the FCC, I'm hoping it was all in order on the back-end by the time things got canceled. So they are saying mid-December for FCC's for that newly canceled cruise. We shall see if it all shows up in good order. My TA was going to push for a refund just so that we could wash our hands of them. It has been so much work and waiting, work and waiting. If I got a pretty littl
  10. I'm coming to terms with the thought that my 12/27 cruise won't happen. Particularly since I'm sailing with kids, so we wouldn't qualify as "experimental." But I'd still like to hear from those posters who have/had Nov/Dec 2020 cruises in regards to how MSC has been (or starts to) handle your bookings. I'd love to lift my cruise to Thanksgiving 2021 on the Seashore because they have the same cabin categories as the Seaside and I'm really attached to trying the 2BR Grand Suite that I have currently booked. Would love to hear from those who were booked for November 2020 what has hap
  11. well, in light of the news today, I think it's time to revive this thread. I recognize there are so many conditions that must be met and this is in phases and blah blah blah. No disrespect intended for those trying to shed a little realism on this optimistic news. But here we are as the first people paid in full for sail dates that could possibly happen. No doubt itineraries could be changed and etc. Please update as you hear from your travel agents or MSC. My TA has no new information currently, but she's promised to keep in touch.
  12. Well, I am now in the position now of waiting for my $98 deposit to be refunded. Glad it isn't more, but still annoying. I had heard that these new deposit refunds had been happening quickly, but that's not the case for us.
  13. I saw several just pre-covid, and all non-alcoholic drinks were under the easy package price point.
  14. If we get to go on our December 2020 cruise, we're assuming we'll be limited to ship excursions. We are only in port 9am-1pm and thinking water park is the best of the current offerings (traveling with pre-teen & teens.) But the water park website says it's closed until further notice- hasn't been updated since last spring. Anybody have any inside info on reopening plans? I just saw a post from Maya Chan that they are preparing to be able to receive cruise guests, so I hope that means other local venues will be doing the same.
