  1. We haven't seen anything for the on-board credit yet and it was a significant credit for us since so many shore excursions were cancelled. I was hoping it would be applied quickly to cover the airfare we booked on one of the cards but..
  2. And here's the Future Cruise Credit letter which states the credit needs to be applied to a booking by Dec 2021 and the cruise does not need to be depart within that timeframe.
  3. The letter we got on the ship said that the descriptions on the website were written to apply cruises that were fully cancelled and will not exactly match our offers. I've attached a scanned of the letter we got so hopefully that works
  4. I almost feel guilty posting about our trip home after reading about the length of other's travels. We got home about 2 am this morning and it was a very long day but the only delay we had was waiting an hour for the Car Rental Shuttle at LAX. It was a surprisingly easy exit from the ship just after 8 Sunday morning and a quick ride to the airport. Luckily our first flight was at 2 so it was only a few hours at the airport before our flight to Melbourne where we had about a 2 hr layover and then a direct flightto LAX. There were no lines at LAX and it was very quick getting thru and to baggage claim. We missed the first Alamo shuttle by seconds and another one didn't come for about an hour while all the other companies kept coming around and around. It only took a few minutes to get the car once we got to the facility and we were on our way in a downpour of rain. We had thought about spending the night in LA but John thought he got enough sleep on the plane so we headed home with a few stops for food and leg stretches. I think we spent about 7 hours at airports (not counting LAX), 16 hours in the air, maybe 2 at LAX with the car, and then 6 in the car. Hope everyone else gets home quickly and safely!
  5. I'm on the HAL tour and we left from Argentina so we had to do the walk from the buses with our luggage in the rain. The few people that would need a wheelchair at the airport were able to get a cab just past the barricade and it wasn't a short walk there and it was slightly uphill and wet and muddy. We and several others walked a lot of it and then caught a cab just at the actual entry to the airport for only $4 which was a bargain. Quite a few including our tour escort and guides walked the whole way and it started pouring before they made it the whole way. Somehow the plane left on time and we just arrived at our Buenos Aires Hotel getting ready to leave for the Tango Show and Dinner in 45 mins. Long day! Ruth - We re-board the ship tomorrow afternoon so our blog probably won't be updated for today until Sat morning.
  6. We had her on the Maasdam earlier this year in Alaska and she was the absolute worst we've ever seen. We and many others walked out. Here's the entry my husband made about the show in our blog "We went to the show to see Frances di Lorinzo who bills herself as a Mommy By Day – Comedian By Night. Here’s a news flash for her, and some advice: She shouldn’t quit her day job! She tried to find her groove for five minutes, struggling from one unfunny line to the next. Grasping for help at one point she complained, “I’ve heard of a tough house before, but there’s no call for this.” One of her problems was that an older person who lampoons themselves for being old, can get away with jokes about old people cruising with HAL; but those same jokes don’t work for someone who thinks of herself as a mommy and is in her early 40s at the most. We gave her five minutes, four more than she deserved, and we didn’t need to see any more. There is funny, and there is funny, and this wasn’t funny! I’m just saying… Later when Sharon was checking for our Kodiak picture at the photographer she heard Frances pondering, “What is it with these people, are they all engineers who don’t know funny when they hear it?”"
