  1. I put a 48 hour hold last night on a new cruise that they wanted $662 deposit. I have until 7:30 tomorrow night or it will be cancelled. I had to do it without my TA because their server is down and she couldn't do it. Now I have to figure out how to get the one I'm cancelling credited to the one on hold so I don't have to pay the deposit. She told me I would probably have to call Carnival - like I would get thru today. Yeah Right. On the form they gave us to fill out the second section shows a place for new booking number and says that you will get the higher OBC if you fill it out. I have a booking number - but I didn't cancel my original trip before now - I wonder if I put the new number in there if it will work?? Any ideas?
  2. I also have the Free Drink offer on my VIP number. I did a mock booking taking advantage of the "free" drinks offer and then did a mock booking not taking the free drink offer and the price comes out to and additional cost of $217/ea for the 3 of us to have the "free" drinks. So like NCL - not really free..... We aren't big drinkers so this doesn't seem like a good deal to us. For others who are drinkers I'm sure it's worth the extra cost. Stay healthy...
  3. When did Carnival cancel your May 3rd cruise? We are on the Breeze on 4/25 and I haven’t heard of any cancellations after 4/9. Did I miss something?
  4. We are booked on 4/25 on regular balcony room on the Breeze for 7 day Eastern Caribbean. My log in still shows our cruise is still scheduled. I'm pretty confident that this is not going to happen. Even if it did - we have made the decision not to cruise until this all has past. I'm like others and have been looking for something to re-book later this year. Yesterday I checked into Alaska late Aug. I was surprised to see that I could book an AFT facing balcony for 7 days round trip Seattle on 8/25 for less than $70 more than we paid for the Caribbean. One of Carnival perks offered (good until 3/23) was 2 days are free which is why the pricing was so low. Of course the flights aren't as cheap going from Cleve to Seattle as they were for Cleve to Orlando. Maybe they will extend this past the time I hear ours is cancelled - maybe not. It's just a waiting game right now. Stay healthy!! That's the important thing at this point.
  5. Our cruise is 4/25 on the Breeze and we are still holding out to see what the offer is because I too believe that they will cancel cruises out past ours. Either way we will cancel - both my sisters are over 70 and no doctors are going to sign the paperwork saying they are ok to sail even though they are healthy. I did cancel the shore excursions we had booked online for that cruise this morning. When I was trying to complete the transactions to remove them it kept giving me a message that said they couldn't process my request - try again later or call this number 800-764-7419. I called the number and was only on hold for 20 minutes before someone picked up. She checked my account and said yes they had been removed. She told me to log out and clear my cookies on my computer and then log back in. Did that and they no longer show up. Let's hope that when we cancel the cruise and use that credit for a future cruise it goes just as smoothly. Stay healthy everyone and hope this passes soon..
  6. I went to this website this morning and it said the Breeze was at Grand Turk so it looks like they were allowed there https://*****/ships-position-carnival-breeze
  7. We are on the Breeze on 4/25 for 7 days and i just checked our account and do not see any OBC processed towards it. Do I need to have travel agent contact Carnival or will it show up on its own? I know last time she asked Carnival something she was on the phone forever waiting for them to pick up. Don't want to waste her time if its going to come thru on its own. Thanks for any help on this.
  8. We were scheduled for Disney cruise in February. Unfortunately the morning we were to leave for airport my grand daughter had a 105 temperature and had to be taken to Emergency Room. She was diagnosed with Flu B and missed a week of school but is fine now. Good news is that Spirit Airlines gave us 60 days to re-book another flight. Flight doesn't have to be taken within the 60 days - just re-booked. We were able to cancel everything and get our money back - minus the insurance cost to cover the trip ($158/ea) and our our one shuttle from Ft Lauderdale to Port of Miami which was on $12/ea. So we were lucky - hopefully you'll be able to re-coup most of what you have invested. Good Luck - and stay healthy! There are always more cruises in the future.
  9. Thanks for the option - you must have missed my my post below from Monday where we had decided to book with Go Port. Seems we made a good choice.. safe travels Thanks to everyone for their replies - we decided to go with Go Port and stay at the Hampton Inn Gateway Village in Orlando. For 3 of us it was $279 total. Pick up at airport and take us to hotel / pick up at 9:30 AM at the hotel and take us to Port Canaveral / pick us up at ship after cruise and take us back to Orlando airport. And that cost includes the hotel. Our transfer alone for the 3 of us on Carnival was $107 for return from port to airport so it seems like a really good choice. I've seen good reviews for Hampton so we are looking forward to this trip the end of April. Happy & safe travels to all.
  10. We are on the Carnival Breeze on 4/25 (1st time on bigger ship for us). It's 2 of my sisters and myself - celebrating my retirement. Who are you sailing on? Flying out of Cleveland non-stop on Spirit. Rates were reasonable - until you add the seat charges and the checked baggage charge but we were still under $300/ea round trip so I can't complain. Now just have to figure out how to pack everything in a personal bag and a checked bag under 40 lbs. I always over pack

  12. Glad to hear this - we have just booked the same option staying at the Hampton in the end of April before our cruise. Always love to get recommendations from other cruise critic members.
  13. Thanks so much for the replies - I'm going to check them all out and see what works best for us.
  14. Just booked a Carnival cruise the end of April and need help with options for staying over night. Three of us are flying into Orlando the day before - was hoping to find a hotel that has both free airport shuttle and offers a shuttle to Port Canaveral cruise dock. Even if it has a $10 per person charge or something like that. We are not familiar with any of the ride options like Uber. Does anyone know if there are hotels in Port Canaveral that have the shuttles that will pick you up at airport? I didn't know if any offer that since it looks to be almost an hour away. Another option is we stay at hotel in Orlando and get up in the morning and take shuttle back to baggage claim at airport and use the Carnival transfer for $35 ea. Not looking to pay high class. Would like to stay under the $250 range. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Happy & safe travels to all
