  1. I called Carnival on March 24 and requested a refund for my April 19 cruise because I’m Canadian and the borders were closed. I was told by the agent that a refund request had been issued. So I’ve waited patiently for 2 months. Today I ran out of patience when I started seeing that people were getting refunds for May cruises. When I called, they told me I was given an fcc! So, long story short, they rectified that and I am now getting a refund but they won’t tell me how long. I told them it’s not my fault they screwed up 2 months ago (I have name of the person I spoke to) and I shouldn’t be put at the bottom of the queue. I am not impressed with carnival. She told me several times that I’m one of a million people. I am aware of that which is why I waited two months. Anyways, I told them if I don’t have it in 30 days I’m starting a credit card chargeback. I’m guessing they don’t care but I’m pissed. They owe me $3200! It should not take this long to issue refunds.
  2. Yes i find that unsettling too. However, I can prove I paid them with credit card statement if necessary and I have emails showing my cruise on apr 19 was paid in full. So they can’t get away with not refunding. I certainly hope they wouldn’t try to pull something like that. I would never cruise with them again if they did.
  3. Did you guys get any kind of email after you cancelled? I requested a refund 3 days ago. Was told I would have it in 10 days and my cruise disappeared from “my cruises” but I’ve no email confirmation. Just a cruise gone. Poof. I asked the lady for a conf # that I called or something but she gave me her name and said I would get an email. It’s unsettling.
  4. I’m Canadian booked on magic apr 19. I called the other day and asked for a refund since the borders are closed. They submitted a refund request based on the fact that the Canada us border will still be closed then. No argument. When I said it was pretty much a given that my cruise would be cancelled anyway she agreed. Said it would take about 10 days for a refund to be issued.
  5. Thanks. If anyone knows where this form is, please share. I’m going to call this weekend in and get to the bottom of it.
  6. Well Carnival can’t dock at an Canadian ports until a least the end of July which affects all Alaskan cruises and eastern Canada. Canadians and Europeans can’t enter USA to take a cruise, its very unlikely any Caribbean islands are going to allow docking 3 weeks from now considering this virus is just taking its hold down there, anyone with a lick of common sense knows that things are not going to improve within the next few weeks. And carnival knows. They just don’t want to give refunds.
  7. I am booked on the Magic April 19. I know I’m not going because...umm..let’s see. I’m Canadian, the borders are closing tomorrow, and there’s no way this will be close to being over by April 10 and Carnival knows it. I think they are waiting until the March 31 deadline so we all have to cancel and take a FCC then they will cancel our cruises and get out of giving a refund. I’m not okay with that. Anyone else agree that this is what is going on?
  8. Honestly? I didn't care for him. He seemed to be something of a "bullshitter" (harsh, I know but you asked!) And I felt like his main goal was to sell his books. He spent a long time on a story about his first winter alone in a cabin. He showed some slides, talked about his book, made some suggestions for what to do in Alaska.
  9. Disembarkation: Was a piece of cake. Very well organized. We got off and were put right into a cab. No problems. I'll say this about Princess. They are very well organized.
  10. Here is some random food pictures. The lobster on formal night, Baked Alaska and Creme Broule
  11. Victoria, BC Okay. This port is just downright stupid. I understand that they have to stop in a Canadian Port. But C'mon. We didn't dock til 7pm. There was some kind of hold up with customs and we didn't get off til 730. Unless you had an excursion booked, there was nothing to do! We walked to Fisherman's Wharf. Just some bars and restaurants. And apparently some people walked downtown which was a bit of hike and all the shops were closed!!
  12. Ketchikan I think my favorite day of the whole trip because I finally got to see some wildlife (other than whales). We did the Zodiac Boat Excursion. It was awesome!!! Of course, it was drizzling when we docked in Ketchikan. But, amazingly, it stopped just long enough for our 2.5 hour excursion, then started again just as we were coming into the dock. Can't ask for better than that in Ketchikan. A van took us out to the dock where they outfitted us in thick, wool socks. a wet suit/rain coat thing complete with a jacket and pants, mittens and rubber gloves. We were in a small group and my husband and I had our own boat (they seat 4). There was only two other boats plus the guide. A very small, private tour. The boats go really fast and its choppy out there, or it was that morning anyway. A bit of a rough ride at times, but so fun! And the best part? The Harbour Seals! And we saw a few bald eagles. The guide had fish in his boat and he threw it in the water and the eagle swooped down right in front of us. Amazing. We also saw some deer. No bears! He took us to a view spots on the shoreline where they might be, but no luck! I highly recommend this tour if you want to have fun and see wildlife up close.
  13. Glacier Bay Day: We had amazing weather for Glacier Bay. No rain. The sun peeked out a few times. Not overly cold. I'm probably going to get a lot of flack for my next statement and it is just my opinion. Disclaimer: I have a short attention span. I kind of thought Glacier Bay was overrated. There. I said it. Yes it was a beautiful place to see and I'm glad I had the opportunity. But once I saw Marjorie and took some pictures, I was done. The other big glacier there is covered in dirt. And then there was one other one on the way out but I didn't see it. Now, you have to remember that we went to Mendenhall and canoed to the Davidson Glacier, so I was probably just a little glaciered out at that point.
