  1. Dispute the bill on your credit card if you still can. Don't go for FCC as they may not be around. If the are there will be a ton of bargains.
  2. Make sure you use a credit card and you will be fine. personally I would try Princess. They are also very consistent and the food and service is much better. That's my opinion after sailing for 4 decades and tried them all. Princess generally gives you the most bang for you buck. Especially when it comes to beverage packages. Only 1 person in a room for 2 has to buy the package. BIG SAVINGS!
  3. Try Princess. There have always been the most consistent and prices are just a bit above NCL but worth it. They always have a great rewards program and they are the only cruise line that I am aware of that lets 1 person buy the drink package if the other doesn't drink. Saves a ton of $$$. Crew is always courteous. Just tip the bartender up front at your favorite bar and you will be treated very well. Don't forget your hard working cabin steward.
  4. My suggestion is to get a full refund while you still can. If this epidemic is over in a few months then there will be bargains like you have never seen before.
  5. Those were great times. The "newbies" don't have any idea in what they missed.
  6. Which line is giving away free drink packages to everyone?
  7. Glad you had a good experience. I agree that Celebrity is one of my favorites for getting the most "bang for your buck". Same holds true for Princess. Both are very consistent and I have been doing this for 40+ years. Never had any serious issues except with NCL? That's ok because there are plenty of lines I prefer. We did 12 cruises last year and outside of the Pearl all were very good. I also like MSC because their ships are beautiful. Especially the Seaside however they do cater to a European crowd. On my last sailing is was 70% non American which is ok except they make announcements all the time in several languages and that gets a bit boring. Their MDR is not the greatest by far however the buffer is fabulous. Especially for desserts. A lot of smoking also.
  8. NCL doesn't discount any of their drink packages which I don't recommend. Just find a friendly Bar Tender and tip him well upfront and no more worries. Keep tipping him a a bit each day and you will never wait for your favorite strong drink. Also don't forgot your hard working cabin attendant. Opt out of the auto tip and give generously to those who made your vacation great. The unseen folks, including Mgmt., should not be sharing the auto tips but they do. They should be part of overhead expenses to the Corp. In my decades of experience NCL has been going downhill foe the past several years. Too much nickel and diming. Last time I was on I paid $42 for a double Grey Goose which I believe included the tip. Ridiculous. Heard they lowered the price on Grey Goose but no more NCL for me.
  9. I couldn't agree more with you. Waste of time and money.
  10. I personally will stay off all cruise ships and and planes until this virus settles down or at least is contained. It's simply not worth taking a chance. Postponing a vacation for a few months (hopefully) is not the end of the world. If they come up with a treatment then no worries.
  11. Thanks again. Will do. I am sailing on the Regal doing a TA on Apr 19 out of FLL.
  12. We do about $100 per day but never got much.
  13. Thanks for the advice. I am not a big gambler so I will take your advice. I'm not in your $1000 per day category. Good Luck.
  14. I strongly suggest you check with your policy issuer.
