  1. https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/2020/08/04/alaskas-first-cruise-ship-of-2020-returns-to-port-early-after-passenger-tests-positive-for-covid-19/
  2. Many are at anchor in the Bahamas. Celebrity, Carnival and Royal Caribbean ships.
  3. https://thepointsguy.com/news/united-states-cruise-ship-comeback-delay/?navtid=More-3 Interesting article on resuming small ship cruising in the USA. Doesn't look promising.
  4. Does anyone have any real information whether ANY American Cruise Lines ships are sailing with passengers or has anyone confirmed with ACL whether their cruise is happening?
  5. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23124-pullmantur-files-for-reorganization.html
  6. American Cruise lines does have a Nashville to St. Louis river cruise.

  8. Had an April 2020 cruise cancelled and received a voucher for 125% which we used to upgrade cabins for re-scheduled cruise in April 2021. Be careful about the "125%". Our Travel Agent handled the negotiation with ACL and the amount wasn't 125% of what we paid. Never got a clear understanding of what DIDN'T get 125%, but was probably related to TA commission, taxes or port fees or a combination of those three. Only got 100% of what they didn't include in the 125% voucher.
  9. If you opt-into their new cancellation policy, you will get a voucher for a future cruise if YOU decide to cancel and you will get a voucher for a future cruise if ACL decides to cancel or “postpone” your cruise. If you DON’T opt-in to the new policy, and you cancel your cruise within 45 days of sailing, you lose 100% of your money. If ACL cancels the cruise, you get your money back per the old contract terms. Here’s the question. Understand ACL has “postponed” all cruises thru April 10th. If you are under the old cancellation policy, does that mean if they postpone it, they will give you a voucher instead of a refund. So, is ACL postponing different from ACL cancelling a cruise? Anyone on a cruise between now and April 10th? What happened between you and ACL?
  10. Received a 2nd email with the revised info.
  11. Looks like ACL is following most of the larger cruise lines with their cancellation policy. What are you planning to do? Who is planning to cancel? Dear Valued Guest: In light of recent events, American Cruise Lines is introducing Cruise With Comfort, which provides flexibility for your upcoming travel. Although your cruise is scheduled to sail as planned, we understand the decision to travel is personal. Cruise With Comfort Offer: American Cruise Lines is offering guests with new and existing bookings for cruises departing March 9, 2020 through June 30, 2020 the ability to cancel for any reason up to 24 hours prior to the start of your Cruise Package and receive Cruise Vouchers equal to 100% of Amounts Paid. If you opt for this offer, these terms replace the cancellation terms that otherwise would have applied, whether our Standard Cancellation Terms or the terms of our Cancel For Any Reason Protection Plan. Terms-Definitions: “Cruise Vouchers” – each Cruise Voucher issued to you may be applied against one dollar of a future Cruise Package purchased by you. Cruise Vouchers have no cash value, are non-transferable, and must be used for travel within twelve months from the date of issuance. “Cruise Package” – the scheduled American Cruise Lines cruise occurring between the embarkation and disembarkation dates printed on your cruise confirmation and any additional tours, hotel nights, or transportation service purchased directly through American Cruise Lines, Inc. which appear on your cruise confirmation receipt. “Amounts Paid” – means the cash, check, or credit card amounts actually paid for your Cruise Package, including any deposits made to reserve your cruise package. Cruise Credits, certificates, vouchers, or discounts are not Amounts Paid as defined herein. “The Start of Your Cruise Package” – the scheduled start of your travel arrangements purchased from American Cruise Lines (cruise, hotel, ground or air transportation, and/or tour). For more information please contact us at 1-800-894-8570. If you would like to accept this offer for your upcoming cruise, please click “I Accept” below. By accepting this option, you have flexibility in changing your reservation. Your cruise is still confirmed.
  12. If you miss Victoria, I'm assuming next stop is in the USA. As the cruise ends in San Diego, you won't be able to board at a USA port as that would be a violation of the PSVA.
  13. No pens, pads or pencils on single IV cabins. Maybe that's because there are no drawers to put them in!!
