  1. How long did it take for Viking to refund your money? My parents had their April Netherlands tulip cruise cancel the first week of March and they’re scheduled to take a Panama Canal transit cruise this coming December (booked late 2019). They were told it would be up to 60 days to get their funds returned and they’ve decided that if they don’t have them before final payment for the December cruise is due, they will be canceling that one as well.
  2. Have an Anthem NYE cruise booked, we’ve (not surprisingly) not made any changes to those plans. My bestie and I were kicking around the idea of going on a Canada/NE cruise on Grandeur in Sept. Hadn’t booked yet because she’s trying to conceive so we had to wait and see if/when she got knocked up before the cutoff to cruise. Not sure if we’ll explore this option in 2020 anymore.
  3. Um, people aren’t exactly “crammed together” on most flights of late. My husband had 5 other people on his flight from NYC on Monday. Friday there were 124 open seats when he flew down to Orlando. Now the dumbass who flew from FL to NY and back to FL while suspecting and then knowing he had CV.... that’s a different story.
  4. I haven’t flown, but my husband is a pilot for an airline that flies primarily from the east coast down to FL and the Caribbean. They’ve made a 5% “cut,” meaning routes are being consolidated and in some cases are swapping to smaller planes (ie 100 or 150 seats versus 162). I would be prepared for flights to be more full as similar moves are made industry-wide. Business travel is being impacted more, as companies are communicating travel restrictions, than leisure.
  5. Price isn’t based on ship (since you quote Oasis specifically), it’s a basic supply and demand numbers game. Suggest you just watch the price in your cruise planner and purchase at a price you are comfortable paying. For the record, I purchased for our Anthem cruise in December at $65. Last week it jumped to $199 and I suspect it will stay there indefinitely.
  6. Any concessions for airfare/change fees? Sorry your trip was canceled, but I’m not surprised. 😞
  7. No, the OP stated that they lived in Asia and had spent time over the weekend with someone who had transited through HK (friend doesn’t even live there!) OP did the right/honorable thing and self-reported, even though the coronavirus risk for them is very slim. OP - Bravo to you for being upfront with the cruise line. Be the squeaky wheel and hopefully RCI will change its stance on type of refund issued. What are other cruise lines doing with regards to refund policy for coronavirus? May be worth researching.... Royal was extremely generous this past summer with its Cuba cruises (I was directly impacted) but I think that was due to pressure to follow suit within the industry.
  8. Someone can absolutely tell me I’m wrong, but I’m going to say doubtful. My husband watched a launch several years ago from a home on Merritt Island (less than 10 mi, directly across the lagoon) and I was shocked at how small it looked. He had driven over from MCO because he knew he wouldn’t be able to see it from there.
  9. I booked for Anthem NYE at $69/$49 back in Oct. It’s now $199/$179. Honestly, it took them about 72 hours longer than I expected to jack up the price. 😉
  10. I booked last week for our NYE cruise. Not sure if it was available before then (cruise was booked in June), I just switched from traditional to MTD.
  11. When you enter the US, you have to go through customs immediately after exiting the aircraft which flew you in from foreign soil. Once through customs, you can continue on to your connecting flight. I would imagine the same would be true for HK and therefore absolutely tied to the passport.
  12. Awww.... I know it’s old, but what a fun thread to read! My family sailed on Song of Norway spring break ‘90. Didn’t seem so small back then (expect for the 4 of us crammed in an inside cabin).
