  1. I got married on the Seabreeze in 97. Very fond memories. She was sailing for premier cruise line then and her hull was completely Blue
  2. I have pre-paid my gratuities for many years now. However with all this OBC I have collected I'm thinking I will use it instead of pre paying. My question is how does Carnival bill this to your account. Do they charge your S&S daily or I time at the beginning or 1 time at the end I was just curious. I know pre pay shows up as a debit/credit on your S&S about day 2
  3. Also the CDC says any one returning from a cruise to the US must self quarantine for 2 weeks. my company I work for says it’s following CDC guide lines so I would miss 3 weeks of work. The last 2 in paid due to this being a voluntary trip. I feel your pain. Final payment is coming up June 15 and we are thinking of canceling do to not knowing what guidelines will be in effect in August
  4. Aug 29th Magic also. I haven’t heard anything about 1/2 capacities. If that was the case what half will get kicked. To answer the OP question. I would love a 1/2 full ship with full crew.
  5. Florida today posted the largest single day rise in cases (1,203) in over 6 weeks. (Fact) Now it depends on what news agency you listen to as to what that means. There are 10 times the amount of testing compared to 6 week ago. Make your own conclusion. The one number I pay no attention to is the total. That number will only go up. Our cruise is still sailing in Aug. I’m leaning on canceling even thought I have worked in the Publix sector through out the pandemic and have not really feared being out. I really wish I knew what guide line the cruise lines will follow. It would help us make a discussion before I fork out final payment
  6. We like them a lot. It kinda feels bigger due to the large ledge where the port holes are. It is in the front of the ship and it can get loud coming in and out of port. But we feel they are a great value and usually book these cabins
  7. I’m already into carnival for quite a bit. I ave a cruise booked Aug 29 with final payment due mid July. As of now our cruise is still one of the ones going (maybe) I’m really thinking about canceling, not because lm worried about cruising. I’m worried about Carnival canceling and getting more of my money when final payment is paid.
  8. Yep it’s correct. Every time we selected a new cruise with FCC we had to put an new deposit. I’m already into carnival for quite a bit.

  9. we are scheduled to cruise on Magic Aug. 29 which is 8 days. It’s one of the few that is not canceled yet.
  10. We booked this cruise over a year ago using our FCC we got from hurricane Dorian. We still owe a portion and waiting on final payment date to decide if we will still go. I booked a guaranteed balcony and our room is still TBA. There could be a lot liked us waiting on rooms to be assigned im not sure how they will sail at reduced capacity and how they choose who stays and who goes.
  11. I just call the 800# and ask for the casino dept. But here is the number 1-866-299-5859
  12. In the past FCC could not be used for new deposit
  13. It might be me but that seems backwards. I would think the early cruises should get the bigger discount. Helping encourage people to go ahead and make final payment or get back on the ship. ultimately it’s a way to generate cash flow in these troubled times
  14. Thanks. So are you getting $55 PP per day all in with the discount.
  15. Yes. But how long the refund takes is another thing. I have read 3 months. I used to get refund in a week or less. That’s the reason we haven’t pulled the trigger on cheers. We already have quite a few $ tied up with Carnival.
  16. In the past cruise cash was refundable before the cruise. It became non refundable when you sailed
  17. We did a 10 day RT out of Miami to the Panama Canal on the Jubilee back in 1987 Totally enjoyed it
  18. What is everyone paying with all these discounts. Not % but actual dollars per person
  19. I just did a mock purchase and it gave me 20% off @ $41.50 per day. PP and I didn’t even get an e-mail
  20. Your e-mail says an additional 10% off so it would be 20% all to gather. You normally get 10% off for per purchase
  21. I don’t have any inside knowledge but I bet sister ships will be put on hold awhile also
  22. I always get offers. Some good some not so good. I check daily under my profile and look at offers. Some only last a few days. You look at the dates those offers are available. A certain offer may only be available on 1 cruise a month. You just never know.. Don’t wait on e-mail or snail mail to look for deals Good luck and keep checking.
  23. Absolutely we will cruise again. I hope this ends sooner rather than later,
  24. For our August cruise that we had booked way before Covid 19 there is only a few rooms available and the price is much higher.
