  1. But Option 1 wouldn't be on your credit card - it would be in your Captain's Circle Account. We have $600 in deposits for the three cruises so I am expecting $1200 in FCCs. Not expecting ANYTHING on my credit card.
  2. Did you check your Captains Circle Account to see if you got the OBC?
  3. We had three cruises booked for this fall on the Pacific Princess in Tahiti and Australia/New Zealand. Princess cancelled them months ago - not sure if that was Phase one or two but I think it was phase two. We were given the options of filling out the paper work to get refunds of our deposits or, if we did nothing, we would get double the deposit on future cruises as OBC. We chose to get the double $$ in OBC so did nothing. Those three cruises still show as active future cruises in My Princess. As I said - Princess cancelled them MONTHS ago. What to do? Just wait? ?????????????????????
  4. We usually mark our cruises "do not upgrade" . As I said - I know the Island and Coral have covered minis so took a chance on this one. The upgrade actually came months ago when the shutdowns were just starting. It's for a New Years cruise so it might actually go. We're hoping for a vaccine by then so just have our fingers crossed.
  5. Perfect - THANK YOU!!!!! Princess moved us from a BB balcony to a mini-suite (D707) I know that on the Grand class ships most of the mini balconies are uncovered and we REALLY don't like that. I also know that the Island and Coral have different configurations. D707 is covered.
  6. I had an old link describing the good and not-so-good balconies on the Island and Coral. It was from 2013 so not a surprise that it doesn't seem to work any longer. Does anyone have a newer link? Thanks! http://mysite.verizon.net/res76zxu/princessbalconies/id6.html
  7. We just booked a cruise for Nov 2021. The same day we got an email from Princess saying that if we booked a Tahiti cruise we would get an extra $150 in OBC. We also have a cancelled Tahiti cruise from this year that we were supposed to get 150% OBC for if we didn't request our deposit back in cash. So is this $150 that we got on the 2021 cruise just that money from the cancelled cruise? ($100 of which was our deposit - so not a bonus at all.)
  8. I listened to the whole webinar and even went back and listened to what I felt were pertinent parts several times. I don't feel the answers addressed my question clearly. Maybe they are being vague on purpose or maybe they thought they were being clear - but they weren't. And from the variety of answers on here I have a feeling that no one currently knows the answer. Hopefully they will address it on the next webinar - does the original FCD remain an FCD (with associated OBC) or does it turn into FCC.? (I understand that the bonus FCC does NOT generate any extra OBC but if I lose the OBC on a future long cruise I'm better off cancelling and getting that deposit returned to my FCD account)
  9. This was exactly my question - does my FCD turn into FCC and thus I lose the OBC on that future cruise. I really didn't want to bother my TA - she is swamped - but may have to.
  10. I knew that. The question was whether it would still generate an OBC on a future cruise or if that was forfeited. Seems to be yes - it will still generate that OBC.
  11. Thank you - yes, I was confusing FCC and FCD. Now I understand. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
  12. Now at minute 19:42 they say you get the amount of a Future Cruise Deposit doubled. Still doesn't answer my question about OBCs from the FCD Do we still get the OBC from the original FCD or is that forfeited by taking this offer? Steelers- I typed this before I saw your post. So sorry if it repeats. If I understand your post - if I take their offer and use the $200 to re-book, the original $100 will still generate the extra OBC for that future cruise PLUS the $100 for the offer. Right????
  13. The May 7th webinar? It's 48 minutes so I want to make sure that's the right one before I invest an hour. I started to watch........... At minute 17:00 he says we are NOT doubling the FCCs. So I should just cancel and get my refund now??????
  14. We have several future cruises that have been cancelled. All were booked with FCCs. I received the "Double Your Deposit" offer and took it to mean we'd get double the OBCs we were going to get from the FCCs on a future cruise. Someone on our cruise has said that's not accurate - that we'll get the same OBC we were going to get originally or even less. This is the wording "Guests who have not paid in full, have the option to stick with us by accepting this special Double your Deposit Future Cruise Credit offer: Transfer the money deposited for your vacation as a refundable Future Cruise Credit (FCC) and Princess will provide a matching bonus FCC for the same amount up to the base cruise fare amount of the current cruise (minimum $100 per person" Our "deposit" was $100 (the FCC) and the original OBC was to be $150 for one cruise (26 days) and $100 for another (12 days) By accepting this offer will we actually be losing money on the first cruise? Or will we be getting $300 OBC for a future long cruise? So confusing!!!!!
  15. The post he was referring to has been removed . It was a quote from a newspaper in New Zealand with a lot of inflammatory misinformation I'm pretty sure he was referring to the newspaper that posted the incorrect information when he said the bit about being in the business of selling advertisements.
