  1. We're booked on both of these also! I With the KDam parked in Puerto Vallarta, she's anxiously waiting for us all!!
  2. Perhaps you received a Club 21 Offer for a free or VERY HIGHLY discounted cruise and if that's the case you are probably correct. I receive flat Club 21 Casino discounts on all my sailings ( a percentage discount for each sailing) and any and all HAL promos always apply to all my casino discounted cruises, on top of any HAL "promos".
  3. I beg to differ. Sometimes the "fine print" is confusing. I can share that all of my cruises have the casino discount and we were able to take advantage of this promo on all our cruises. Even if HAL cancels, we have some tremendous bonuses and discounts! just call your TA and take advantage - if you wish - it's yours to decide!
  4. I'm sure each of their lines have higher and lower percentages. I'm anxious to learn their staggered fleet re-entry - which ships, when and where are the big questions......
  5. .....Added Donald, "We also want to thank our guests for their many thoughtful notes and overall outpouring of support. It is clear there is tremendous anticipation for a return to cruising. It's also encouraging to note that the majority of guests affected by our schedule changes want to sail with us at a later date, with fewer than 38 percent requesting refunds to date. Our booking trends for the first half of 2021, which remain within historical ranges, demonstrate the resilience of our brands and the strength of our loyal recurring customer base, of which 66% are repeat cruisers. In addition, we plan to stagger fleet reentry to optimize demand and operating performance over time."...... https://www.carnivalcorp.com/news-releases/news-release-details/carnival-corporation-announces-additional-steps-further
  6. Along side with you ..... we've got this same one booked AND we had the earlier Wine Coastal on the KDam booked so fingers crossed they both sail! We have also booked two Caribbean sailings in spring 2021, the Ryndam TA in 2021 and Antarctic in 2022! (along with others we already had booked in 2021). We believe In HAL and we will cruise again.....sooner rather than later!
  7. We have many cruises booked. Three have been cancelled. We elected to take the %125 booking bonus and $250 OBC bonus. We have now received two of the three (six weeks later)bonuses and have rebooked future cruises. The third one (scheduled for 10/3/2020) just cancelled on 5/6/20, so don't expect that credit to show until sometime in July. We'll continue to book into the future. If the cruise cancels, then another bonus/bonus will be on our books. I still look forward to our next sailaway .
  8. I don't know all the intricacies. I hold a number of dividend stocks and many of my shareholder commnications have communicated their decision to take federal aid indicating their temporary dividend payouts. https://www.natlawreview.com/article/effect-dividend-prohibition-cares-act-loans-mid-size-and-large-pass-through-entities
  9. The government CARES act required all companies discontinue stockholder dividends, so CCL is not paying future dividends.
  10. Good to know they are slowly getting back up and running. For all of us on the Ryndam Premier Sailing (and subsequent sailings), we anxiously await the update for a presumed delayed schedule.
  11. I appreciate the detailed differences between the Jones Act and the PVSA. Outside of these threads, it's a comparison most aren't aware of. And reading some of the PVSA violation examples, may have many of us think twice about getting off at unexpected ports, booking B2B to mention a few!
  12. There is not a curtain or partition. We have shared a Neptune with others (sofa bed) (at various times......mother-in-law / sister & husband / son / grand child) and depending on your level of privacy and fun, we have truly enjoyed the "togetherness". It can be an incredible savings, and a lot of memories - it's all in the eye of the passenger(s)!!!
  13. I would make the final payment (as we did for our Alaska cruise). Look at Alaska - If you're on some ships you're sailing, others you're not. We were on an Alaska non-sailing ship, and made our final payment even though it didn't really look like we would be sailing. Should you do so, the upside is you get some extra benefits for a future cruise - and I'm an optimist, so I'm ok with that.
  14. Not sure about HAL. If it's any insight into what HAL might do, the news reports are indicating Carnival cancelled all cruises in/out of NYC for 2020.
  15. If you booked through HAL, you don't need to wait for them to contact you. Your cruise is cancelled and the easiest way to process your credit/refund is through this link: https://book2.hollandamerica.com/cp/
