  1. You're in a tough spot there. Could she have possibly pre-paid for things onboard that they converted to an OBC?
  2. I'm glad this worked out so well for you and your friend. I hope cruising is "normal" in the spring too. Please write a review if you can! I was supposed to go this December, it was cancelled, and was also supposed to go December 2021 (also cancelled). I got refunded on the one from this year, and since I only paid a deposit on the one for December 2021 I decided to take the chance and rebook that one with the $600 OBC for February 2022. It's a shame because I finally got my Mom (77 yrs young) to agree go with me this year which would've been her first cruise, but now she flat our refuses to go with me in 2022. I also think it's too premature to even plan for her to go with me then as well, so I'm going to enjoy that $600 SOLO, which is also totally great.
  3. I booked for February 2022. I had two cruises cancelled...the Breeze in December 2020 and the Sunrise in December 2021. I had to use my airfare voucher from United by July of 2022...I picked February based on a combination of wanting to wait until 2022, my availability being early-mid-February, April, May, pricing, ships, itinerary. March had some good deals but I'm a bagpiper so March is off the list ☘️. May and June started to get expensive. So, early February it is. I also am doing my payment different this time. Instead of doing a ton of small payments over time I'm just doing one big payment when it's due.
  4. I wasn't on the Panorama, I was on the Sunrise for December 2021 and rescheduled that to February 2022 on the Magic. I agree with you that options were limited...I booked a month ago and it was a little challenging to find something that met my criteria, that was also prior to my sail date deadline. It still looks as though sailings are limited, plus I heard that Carnival isn't going to be sailing out of Ft. Lauderdale (no idea if it's true or not but last time I looked a month ago they didn't have any options) so it seems like they're still being conservative with options right now.
  5. It depends on the situation. Always look at the calendar for events, concerts, festivals, etc. in the area you're thinking of booking. Sporting events, festivals, holidays, the peak/low season, etc. for the hotels location all affect availability and price. If I'm flying in 2-3 days prior to the cruise and making my homeport part of my vacation, then I'm much more picky about where I stay, and book as soon as the booking window opens up, which is usually a year or so out, especially if I want a certain type of room such as a waterfront balcony, etc. If I can only fly in a day beforehand I'll be more lenient on where I choose and will narrow down an area that I'm happy with (walk to shops/restaurants, and a nice pool) and do a Hotwire/Priceline at minimum 4 months prior, but again this also depends on the time of year and local events calendar for that location. I'm also not picky about the type of room I get for just one day.
  6. I was booked for December 4, 2021 and we were cancelled. I feel awful for the people that had their dates changed.
  7. I thought they were fine, but I've only had them on one of my cruises so maybe I got lucky.
  8. Honestly after the stunt they pulled by cancelling the Breeze to take over for the Radiance in PC, I don't know what to say anymore. And the painful thing is that my countdown clock is still ticking on the Carnival site like it's mocking me. Jennifer you have only 147 days to go. NOT.
  9. You gotta try it, SO GOOD. I agree with Skrufy, I'm sure they'll do it for you. I am also like Stella, I love my breakfast burritos, they're delicious!!. It's funny because Guys Burgers has so many fans, but I just think it's "meh" I can take it or leave it. But Blue Iguana....its the bomb.
  10. Was supposed to Breeze on December 5th 😭 Already had the Sunrise booked for December 2021. I don't think I'm going to be able to rebook the Breeze and go before then.
  11. I was really hoping the Dream would dance on back to NOLA, but it looks like the Glory is still there through, at least part of, 2023.
  12. There will always be illnesses. Flu, stomach virus, pink eye, colds, and probably Corona, etc. You just have to live your life. Everyone gets sick. Hopefully not during a vacation but unfortunately, it happens.
  13. I was on the Breeze December 5. I feel your pain! I haven't gotten my email yet either. As far as the app goes, you have to logout. Once you log back in, you can enter a new booking # (if you have a cruise already booked in the future) and that one will show....the one that was just cancelled will not show anymore. We were told that we should get an email by tmrw, July 10th. Im still going to give them another week or so.
  14. I was supposed to be on the Breeze on December 5th. As of now I'm going to take the refund. I haven't received my email yet, but I don't want my money tied up with a rebooking....what if they go bankrupt? I'm already booked on the Sunrise for December 2021 (so far just have the deposit put down), and that cruise is MUCH cheaper than the one that just got cancelled. I'm going to hold off on making any payments on that one until this situation calms down and travel resumes normally.
  15. Me too. I was supposed to sail on December 5th. Not happy that they bumped our cruise to accommodate the Radiance passengers, and I'm sure Radiance passengers aren't thrilled either. This would've been my Mom's first cruise...she's 77, and I don't foresee that I can take her with me next year, but it is a possibility. That is disappointing....I booked this cruise in the fall of 2018! I'm taking the refund. I'm already booked on the Sunrise in December 2021 and there just isn't a time I can cruise before then. I also don't want any hassles with masks, etc. on my vacation and even though my boss is very chill I have one co-worker that would squawk if I went to Florida and didn't do the 2 week quarantine when I got home to NJ.
