  1. So I was one of those that had a Radiance Cruise out of Port Canaveral on 11/30 that got switched to the Breeze. My final payment was coming up but I decided it wasn't worth thinking about it or worrying about it. I canceled earlier today. Carnival tried to talk me into booking something late next year. I told them I wasn't going to book anything until I see a month of successful cruises and then I will decide. I walked away from $400 OBC but that is OK. the money I had put down will be refunded and that is good enough for me.
  2. Hoping someone could offer some advice. We were originally on Radiance out of Port Canaveral on 11/30, then got switched to the Breeze. I have a final payment due on 8/30 for $500. My wife already said she isn't going on this cruise and wants me to cancel it. Should I wait, pay the final balance and see if Carnival cancels for me or should I just cancel now. I liked the extra $200 they gave us when we were moved to the Breeze plus I had another $200 from a promotion that I know I will lose if I did the canceling. By waiting and seeing if Carnival does the canceling there is the prospect of that additional $600 OBC for a future cruise. I know in the end it's just money. Any suggestions?
  3. I have 2 NCL cruises booked, one in January 2021 and another in March 2021. When I booked part of the booking included $200 OBC. If I cancel does that stay with me or do I just get back my $$?
  4. Or next cruise is scheduled for 11/29. My wife is very concerned at the moment with everything going on and wants me to cancel and get some of our money back. I'm thinking that the way things are right now here in Florida there won't be any cruises departing this year and want to wait and let Carnival cancel so we can get the benefits they are offering for a cancellation. Are any of you reading this having similar thoughts to this situation?
  5. yes I did my pretend booking for a handicap balcony and only thing available was a handicap ocean suite. I am hopeful on Monday they do the right thing.
  6. Well, I'm one of those on a Radiance to Breeze switcheroo. I just found out my new cabin on the Breeze. We were told we would get an equivalent room on the Breeze. I even spoke to Carnival since I have a handicap balcony due to my wife in a wheelchair. We the room they put us in is NOT a handicap room like I had on the Radiance. I tried calling Carnival and I was told I need to call back on Monday and speak with special needs. In the meantime I did a "pretend" booking and see that the only balcony available is an Ocean Suite which is about $110 more per person. I am hopeful Carnival will move us to this room otherwise I am going to ask them to cancel the cruise. Anybody else having issues with the room they put you in?
  7. This will be the first year in 10 years that I will not have multiple cruises. We typically take 2-4 cruises a year. I had/have 2 scheduled this year. First one was in March that obviously was canceled and I have it rescheduled on 11/29 that I suspect will be canceled based on everything occurring especially in Florida where my next cruise is based out of. Just waiting for Carnival to cancel it.
  8. First, I am in the same boat (pun intended) as everyone else. I have 2 NCL cruises booked next January and March. my question to the group is, do we really think we will be cruising this year when cruise lines have yet to repatriate thousands of their crews? How will they get crew back to these ships to prepare them from either cold or warm storage and get ready to cruise again by 10/1 when most international flights are restricted. I don't expect my cruise to start yet this year. I try to be optimistic but there is a great deal of uncertainty also.
  9. First, I am in the same boat (pun intended) as everyone else. I to have a cruise scheduled for 11/29 (Radiance now Breeze). my question to the group is, do we really think we will be cruising this year when Carnival and other cruise lines have yet to repatriate thousands of their crews? How will they get crew back to these ships to prepare them from either cold or warm storage and get ready to cruise again by 10/1. I don't expect my cruise to occur nor the ones I had re-booked for next January and March. I try to be optimistic but there is a great deal of uncertainty also.
  10. Still waiting on an email update on our changes. Scheduled to cruise 11/29. I’m still thinking even if we get scheduled on the Breeze it will eventually be canceled. Anyone agree or disagree?
  11. Well I just went and checked my booking for the Radiance on 11/29 and there is none. It disappeared. I guess Carnival is locking things down until they redo the bookings. Does anyone know if we will be allowed to cancel our cruise now that the ship is changed or if we will be given that nice $600 OBC that folks are getting? I would have preferred my cruise be canceled and who knows it may still be the way things are going.
  12. I have been cruising for 20 years and want to cruise for another 20 but does anyone have an issue with the fact that we are all talking about our next cruise perhaps late in the summer or the fall and these cruise lines can't get their crews off ships and back home. I know it is a long shot after cruising does start again and I know it will start but I sure don't want to find myself and my wife quarenteened and not able to get home. I should add I have 3 cruises booked, one in November 2020, one January 2021 and one March 2021 that I really want to take
  13. Even though Carnival announced cruises starting in August who in would put even $1 on a deposit for a cruise. With all the news and the difficulties with being socially distant nearly impossible on a ship I find it hard to believe that things will ever be the same. I am platinum on Carnival and we cruise at least 3 times a year. Already had one cruise canceled. I have the Radiance booked the end of November but who knows....I rolled my cruise credit from March to this cruise. I wish I took the refund but I will not risk anymore money until I see how things will work.
  14. Who in their right mind would spend even $1 on a cruise reservation right now? I booked a cruise next January but only used my cruise next certificates since I would never get anything back on them. The balance will stay there until the last possible second. It is hard to trust these cruise lines at the moment. I also have FCC and Insurance credit from my canceled cruise. I wish there was a way to get my $$ back but it is what it is.
  15. Has anybody heard anything from any of the major cruise lines on how they are going to handle the fact that ships use recirculated air and the fact that there is so much close contact with others which make ships hotspots. I have cruises booked in November and next January that I am contemplating canceling even if I lose money, one is on Norwegian and one is on Carnival plus we have a number of cruise next certificates. We keep reading articles about this.
