  1. On FB someone posted that their FCC was extended an extra year . I went to my Princess account and lo and behold the changed the expiry date by a full year . Very happy that Princess did the right thing without begging and pleading on my part .😁 Here is the info I got. Used For Goodwill Fccs 02/16/20 Sail By 05/01/22 Active
  2. Geeze , my proofreading skills are deteriorating . I meant no chance . My research skills are also deteriorating . 😞 My point was Princess may very well eliminate this ship from their fleet but it won't be scrapped . It will be sold as these R class ships seem to be valued . Personally I always thought that Spirit-class are a better choice to be retrofitted into luxury class ships .
  3. NO change it's going to be scrapped but a reasonable chance it will be sold to Oceania or Azamara . These two brands have been competing to scoop up the remaining R class ships . I believe this is one of two that are not owned by these near-luxury cruise lines. I agree with those that believe it doesn't fit with the other Princess ships .
  4. Hmm, we must be getting our info from different sources . 🙄
  5. I have no idea what you are getting at and I don't care . I'm just happy a thread of such "MAJOR" importance was revived . I dream of happier days when door decoration policy actually mattered . 🤞
  6. From the CC article " The 6,200-passenger ship which will embark and disembark around 2,500 passengers over the course of the week" Did MSC limit passengers to this amount or is this the number of people who wished to cruise . I'm not trying to make an editorial comment but that's only a shade over 40% .
  7. Why use the FCD first ? I thought the FCC's expire before the FCD's . Could somebody explain why it's better to use FCD's first .
  8. Classic CC thread with an incorrect headline . FCC's expiry dates have not , at this time, been extended . OP should be ashamed for willingly causing confusion .
  9. Since I'm far far away from Australian , and this is as close as I can get to you guys , what do you think of "Love on the Spectrum" . It's now streaming on Netflix . My wife is a SLP who works with people on the spectrum . We both enjoyed it . (So sorry to depart from this thread's very important topic 😁)
  10. I'm reasonably sure those are countries. 😉 If that is so the existing cruise lines will be looking to migrate their ships to those areas that have recovered and reopened.
  11. Had to find out if your triple guaranteed refunds came in. Yes?🤞🤞
  12. Wondering when Princess will start extending their FCC's . Ours expire in February. Most likely we weren't going to use it. If however they decide to change the expiry date, as they should, that will change things.
  13. Our situation was very similar to yours but frankly I was happy to get a full refund. If we get to use the FCC, that'll be great though I doubt we will. Hopefully the expiry date will be extended but I'm not upset that " absolutely nothing was gained". I never looked at it that way.
  14. Yes to all of the above. Likely it's going to be a longish break from cruising for us.
  15. It's not just NCL that is in serious trouble . Which company is least likely to go bankrupt may be the question. The brands may survive after chapter 20 but not the FCC's .
