  1. We were originally booked on the Bliss for May 2020 but had to cancel, we were looking forward to the being on the Bliss but her 2021 itinerary was different, no longer visiting glacier bay which is amazing, so we opted to book the Encore as she has a stop there. The two things I would consider is do you prefer the ship over the itinerary or the itinerary over the ship, Take a look at this thread it has some info on the two ships
  2. How about this one, take the Carnival 15 day Hawaii on the Carnival Miracle which leaves April 5th 2021 from San Diego and returns April 20th 2021 to San Diego and then stay the 2 nights in San Diego and the board the NCL Jewel on April 22nd 2021 for a 10 night Alaska trip returning to Vancouver May 2nd 2021
  3. Only way to do it on Carnival would be to take the 15 day Hawaii on the Carnival Miracle which leaves April 5th 2021 from San Diego and returns April 20th 2021 to San Diego, then the soonest you could hop on an Alaska sailing would be from Seattle on the Carnival Freedom April 27th 2021 returning May 4th 2021 If you change to Princess you can do a 16 day Hawaii on the Emerald Princess leaving April 15th 2021 from Seattle thru May 1st 2021 and then on the Emerald Princess again from Seattle on a 7 day Alaska leaving May 8th 2021 to May 15th 2021, that was just a quick search on their websites, but my guess is all ships will have a break in between major destination changes, you might be able to find a B2B2B with a small 3-4 day trip in between and on different ships/lines
  4. Yup, I was able to stack both discounts as well as my bonus FCC
  5. Well after the weekend of talk with the Wife we decided to put a Deposit down, the price was great and my casino promo was good as well, and since we are close by and almost always take this sailing every year if it gets cancelled we will have no problem rescheduling or taking one last minute.. only time will tell, Can't wait to get back cruising!
  6. I just got my new Carnival Players club offers and I can book a, as I like to call a booze cruise, since I live only an hour away from Long Beach I was looking at the 4 day Ensenada and Catalina in October for my Birthday, and I can get $250 OBC drinks on us in the Casino and a few more things for just under $500 for 2 in an oceanview cabin. I'd only be risking $100 for the deposit and I could always cancel and get FCC... just wanted to bounce some thoughts off some fellow CC'ers and see if this quarantine is making me crazy or not... TIA - Matco
  7. Having just dealt with CAS over the phone for just an hour I was pleasantly surprised at how well everything went, they were very understanding of the situation and transferred all my discounts and stuff from my old cancelled booking to my new with no questions asked. By far a way better experience than that with NCL...
  8. Our Bliss sailing 5/24 was obviously cancelled and we automatically received our FCC April 30th along with our bonus 25%. The 20% off discount was tied to our latitudes number so when we rebooked and entered our guest names and latitudes numbers the 20% off was automatically applied, in addition to that I called CAS and was able to stack my Diamond players card 20% off discount on top of NCL's 20% off rebooking discount, that allowed us to upgrade our former mini suite (now club suite) into The Haven! Now starts the long wait yet again
  9. November 30th 2019 5 Day Cabo Getaway from LA aboard the Royal Princess, was our first time on Princess and it was great, we hope to have another one booked for the end of this year
  10. they touched on airports and ferry travel and they said there is no impact there
  11. listening in now, no word on cruises specifically but they say gatherings of more than 250 people including leisure and recreation which I would assume includes the boarding process at the port.... they say its thru March but he said its highly likely that it will be extended, fingers crossed the port stays open and things get better as we are set to leave out of Seattle in May
  12. I bet by next week the prices will drop back down again
  13. NCL's pricing is so erratic yesterday our trip was $560 cheaper than what we paid with 12 cabins still available in our category today its $200 MORE than what we paid and still 12 cabins open. My guess is they upped the prices to cover the OBC credits...
  14. I was told the only way to qualify for the new promo is to upgrade the cabin otherwise we only qualify for the price drop OBC
