  1. My original cruise was in May so I rebooked it for September once it was cancelled. The cruise was half the price. When they gave me the future cruise credit it was for what my penalty would have been at the time of cancellation. So that covered the cruise and then I had about $36 left over from that amount that they rolled into the OBC. They then refunded me the rest, which I got in less than 30 days. My September cruise has been cancelled and I just took a refund this time since I am not really sure when things will get back to normal and all of the cruises I am looking at are more expe
  2. That is what they did when I rebooked my cruise at a lower rate after it was cancelled. I also got my refund in less than 30 days. I did book through the Casino so I am not sure if that makes a difference.
  3. No, they do not add them together. Here is the fine print from the letter: New OBC offer replaces any previous OBC offer and applies to new booking if made by 5/31/2021.
  4. You will lose your original OBC. This happened to me, I originally had a $500 OBC through casino offer and once my cruise was cancelled and I rebooked I only got the $600 OBC (7 day cruise).
  5. I know. I booked the same cruise and got over half it back from my original booking. Looking at the same cruise next year it will cost more no matter when I sail so I am debating on just taking the refund and waiting for another casino offer.
  6. I was also booked through the casino and I am not sure it that makes a difference as well. I was surprised that the refund of the cruise, excursion, and FTF came through at the same time since most people are reporting this is not what they have experienced.
  7. There might be a glitch in their website. I just searched Galveston for Sept through Nov and the cruises came up and let me start the booking process. I tried various cruises and dates.
  8. I hope they keep the servers in the buffet, Holland does this and Carnival did it on my March 2020 cruise. This will cut down on the spread of any disease, which is always a good thing.
  9. I remember reading something that Carnival will limit the capacity of the cruises. This makes sense because then they can space out people better. I was on one of the last cruises to go, March 9-14th out of NOLA which was spring break. This cruise was originally sold out but many people cancelled with Corona looming. When we left we could get toilet paper and when we got back the world had fallen into chaos and there was no toilet paper. It was a small ship but people could space out if needed too due to the amount of cancellations. I was defiantly not nearly as packed in at muster as I w
  10. I just received my refund this morning. Cruise Date May 9th Cancelled by Carnival on March 30th Rebooked on April 3rd. I did take the obc and rebook the cruise for September but since the FFC was only for what the penalty would have been if I cancelled my cruise and my rebooked cruise was way cheaper they refunded the rest. I also had a casino offer so I had to cancel and rebooked through the casino. I also got my FTF and excursions refunded. My refund went to an AMEX.
  11. Sorry if it sounds like a rant but that is not my intentions, I just look at things a bit differently than others since I am numbers person. There is still so much is not known about this virus as time pass and we learn more about it. Most information will come hindsight and when reliable antibody testing exists that is provided to most of the population. There has been so much mis-information put out by the media, websites, and others mostly due to rushed, small studies and the use of modeling, and ever single small study is reported on and by the next day a new study that says t
  12. I filled out the form but did not get a response so several days later I called and rebooked a cruise. Did not get a confirmation email about the FCC only about my new booking. The new booking shows my OBC but the way the FCC worked at least when my cruise was canceled is they only give a FCC for the amount that you would have been charged to cancel the cruise and they will refund you the rest. For example since it was about a month before sailing I was in the 75% charge range so that was my FCC and the rest they are to refund or you can use on your rebooking. The cruise I chose to rebook
  13. I was on the Valor out of NOLA March 9th-14th 2020. When we left you could still get toilet paper but when we got back no toilet paper in sight. I was suppose to go on the Vista in May cruise out of Galveston that I rebooked for September once Carnival canceled (not too hopeful but you never know). I also have a cruise with NCL in June from NYC to Bermuda that I am 99.99% sure will be canceled soon. I also have an RCL cruise in December I am a little more hopeful for that one but you never know.
  14. I have a cruise out of NOLA on the Valor that leaves Monday and one on the Vista from Galveston in May. Not cancelling either of them.
