  1. I opted for an FCC (125%) on a cancelled cruise months ago. Can I now get the 100% cash back or am I stuck with the FCC? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  2. I paid for a cruise that was cancelled using 1. Debit card for deposit and 2. Remainder using a credit card. I received my deposit back into my account but have yet to see credit for remainder on my credit card. What’s the usual wait time between the 2? I would think both would be refunded the same day.

  3. We’re sharing an important change for your upcoming Royal Caribbean cruise. We hope this finds you healthy and safe and that with each passing day, we are closer to getting back to a more regular day-to-day. While this is like nothing any of us have ever experienced, we continue to evaluate how it impacts our upcoming sailings and our healthy return to service. Our most recent plan was to resume operation on October 31st, 2020. However, to ensure we have ample time to focus on our healthy return to service initiatives, our global suspension has been extended through November 30th, 2020, with a plan to resume operation on December 1st, 2020. As a result, your sailing will unfortunately be cancelled. While we wish we had different news to share, we’ve emailed you and your Travel Advisor additional details, including compensation. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this unexpected situation – we miss you already. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. So we know the ports RC will sail from when they start back up but when will they announce cancellations? I have an 11/22/20 out of Miami and would like to book a land vaca but want a cancellation first. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. You will have to wear a mask while walking around the ship. That’s a given. I believe if you got the email you cancel cancel and get $$$ back. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. Some encouraging information for one Caribbean port. ST. KITTS & NEVIS TO REOPEN BORDERS ON OCTOBER 31, 2020 St. Kitts & Nevis is pleased to once again welcome visitors to its shores beginning October 31, 2020. In order to ensure a responsible reopening of its borders, the Federation is the last Caribbean destination to do so. The CDC recently assessed the Federation's Covid-19 risk as very low and designated it as "No Travel Notice" required, having had only 19 cases of the Coronavirus, no community spread and no deaths. "We have been working diligently to prepare for this reopening to ensure that we are ready to welcome travelers by training and certifying local businesses and individuals in the health and safety protocols they are required to meet and be certified in to be permitted to operate," said the Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant, Minister of Tourism, Transport and Ports. "This is particularly important as we encourage visitors to explore our islands beyond their hotels to experience what makes us a unique, authentic and quintessential Caribbean experience." The Hon. Mark Brantley, Minister of Foreign Affairs & Aviation, added, "The genuinely friendly people of St. Kitts & Nevis are a key component of our tourism product, so the protocols we have established aim to provide for their safety in interacting with visitors as well as visitors' safety in interacting with our people. It is critical to travelers' perceptions of St. Kitts & Nevis as a safe and desirable destination of choice as well as to citizens and residents own safety in embracing their return." The twin-island Federation has received international recognition of their successful management of the first wave of the global pandemic as a result of early and aggressive testing, contact tracing and quarantine program along with an "All of Society Approach" that includes mask-wearing in public, social distancing and sanitization protocols to ensure everyone's health and safety. Key outlets such as the BBC, Sky News and Tripoto have named St. Kitts & Nevis among the few countries in the world to have effectively "beat" the virus. Ongoing and careful consultation with the Chief Medical Officer and Ministry of Health to fully develop and implement health and safety protocols for the entire industry was paramount to ensure the well-being of all citizens, residents and visitors. In fact, for business to reopen, tourism industry businesses, employers and employees must undergo "Travel Approved" training for their respective sector/business/department and upon completion of the training they receive the "Travel Approved" Certification and Seal. The "Travel Approved" Certification and Seal provides assurance to citizens, residents and visitors the destination is ensuring health and safety protocols are not compromised in St. Kitts & Nevis and can be trusted. It was only then St. Kitts & Nevis decided to reopen its borders Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. So I have an 11/22 cruise on Allure out of Miami that I’m fully expecting to be cancelled. Drink package was $44/day for awhile and is now $59. What gives with the increase? Are they expecting people to buy and keep the money instead? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
