  1. $600 for 6 days or longer at last cancellation. $300 for less than 6 days.
  2. I just hope that more rapid testing places open up wherever cruises embark from, and debark from. We just came back from FLL, and had a really hard time finding a rapid testing facility, as we had to have our test results back within 3 days of flying back to NY, and many places told us it might take 3-5 days to get results, with 3-10 days at some. Imagine thousands of people looking to get tests before cruising, and after cruising. What a mess that will be. If they give rapid tests at the port before boarding, that would definitely help. Will hold up boarding procedure, though.
  3. Will try calling my pvp on Monday to see if they will push final payment down the road. Unfortunately I am not confident that cruising will resume in March at this point. I do think we would still be eligible for the obc if they cancel the cruise - whether final payment was made or not. For the 2 cruises that CCL cancelled on me final payment was not made, and the obc was transferred without any issue.
  4. I found this thread very interesting. I always buy my CCL gift cards either at a Simon Mall, or at Bed, Bath and Beyond. While I have never used them for a cruise deposit, I do immediately go to Guest Services once on board and have them put on my account. I am always told to hold on to the gift cards, as sometimes "things go wrong." I am so glad things worked out for the op.
  5. I had my stockholder obc added to my casino rate (heavily discounted.). No problem.
  6. Drove past Port Everglades on way to FLL airport yesterday. One cruise ship was there - Celebrity Edge. So sad to see the port so empty.
  7. One of my favorite parts of cruising is when there is a horn battle between ships and/or ship lines. Especially love the Disney horns!
  8. Glad to hear that. Will call before my final payment is due for my 3/21 cruise and ask for extension.
  9. Happy Thanksgiving to all on this thread! Sooo - we finally made it down to our Florida condo for 5 days after 9 months! Truthfully, I was shocked to see what was going on in Fort Lauderdale. Very few masks being worn, bars and restaurants jammed, jammed, and more jammed. Total disregard for others when walking down Las Olas in regards to social distancing/masks. I actually did a count - passed 60 people, and only 8 were wearing masks. Everyone was making jokes that the people wearing masks must be New Yorkers. We scouted out restaurants to eat in our first day down, picking and reservi
  10. Make sure your final deposit is not automatically going to be paid on 11/22. My online paperwork says final payment is automatically due to be paid on 12/21 on the credit card I had put my deposit down with.
  11. Not a big deal to re-book. My pvp is fantastic, and I don't know where my life will lead me in late 2021 or beyond!
  12. I am cruising (maybe) on the Magic on 3/21. My deposit is due a bit later than yours in Dec. At this point I am going to wait it out. You will be the first cruise as Magic gets out of dry dock - if that happens. If worried I would call up CCL (or your pvp if you have one) and see if they will move your deposit back 1 month. Heard from others they allowed that. That will give you more time to see where cruising is going in the future.
  13. I can't imagine the theme parks haven't had a "measurable effect" on the spread of covid. There are several reports out there that Disneyworld has had a number of covid cases reported from their workers. (https://www.thedailybeast.com/workers-reveal-disney-is-covering-up-its-covid-cases). They are keeping it under wraps as they are still trying to get back on their feet. The cruise lines had a different issue - people got sick while on a cruise, and they couldn't really off-load them for a while. At theme parks people are not "trapped" and can come and go as they wish - many doing day visi
