  1. I think that is still too much for us. We are a party of 2. I can see how it may be good for our entire family, with shade for the babes, meeting place etc. We try to keep a lid on expenses so we can cruise more😊
  2. Where are the Baltic cruises? First it was to be released Nov. 30, then switched to Dec 4. I’m worried there won’t be any😢
  3. Wondering if you know, does this date usually include the Baltic’s?
  4. UFrom Sunny AZ Girl Quote”Their current cruise fare paid will be price protected or reduced to the prevailing cruise fare rate (whichever is lower). This excludes taxes, fees, gratuities, and other non-cruise fare items.” At least they price protected. We had our July 27, 2021 cancelled. RCCL said we could not wait and book the same itinerary and similar dates in 2022. They gave us our money back and said we would have to wait until the new Baltic’s were announced and rebook, no to protected price. I know life isn’t fair, but what’s offered for some should be offered to everyone. We were disappointed to be treated as such by the only line we sail on. We have already cancelled and rebooked 3 cruises from this year at a cost to us each time.
  5. I wonder if anyone from RC looks at the message boards for cruises. They sure could learn a lot. I have worked in customer service and I would be embarrassed at the service they call customer service. I know some of the problems can be chalked up to historical circumstances but come on, they have had plenty of time to figure out the plan. I think that the fact there are so many unhappy customers doesn’t promote much confidence.
  6. Thank you for the link! I really did try several searches but came up blank. I will be following.
  7. These threads are full of people who got the shaft. I wonder if anyone at RCCL reads any of them. This whole changing of ships and elimination of cruises is just the icing on the cake of 2020. I frankly don’t understand any of it. I know it sounds dramatic but they need us to come back to cruise, have confidence that things will return to a somewhat normal place. How can RCCL do this to loyal customers and get them to come back? Our cruise was flat out cancelled, we booked it 2 1/2 years in advance, we will rebook for 2022 and live with the fear of them canceling again. I wrote the company with my concerns but I’m certain they won’t respond. I don’t feel they really care.
  8. Ours , also cancelled ,was booked on Nov. 14. So I will pay attention around that time. Wondering where in Michigan you live? We spent 30 years in a little town on Lake Michigan, Grand Haven.
  9. I beg forgiveness if there is a thread on this already. My searches came up empty. Can anyone tell me when the schedule is released? My memory says mid November, but my memory isn’t what it used to be. i enjoy the predictions from those that follow too.
  10. Interesting——— finally received an e-mail rom RCCL today and mine seems to be a different expiration date. Understanding how much time and effort go into planning your cruise, it's important to us that we make it up to you. So, we also have a special offer just for you. If you rebook an alternate European itinerary departing in 2021 by October 21st, 2020, we'll provide you with an Onboard Credit valued at a $100 USD for interior and ocean view staterooms or $200 USD for balcony staterooms and suites. You must decide to move to a new sailing by October 21st, 2020. Once you find a new sailing, contact us to rebook your next getaway. The Onboard Credit will be automatically applied to your new reservation 72 hours from the date you rebooked your new cruise. So, there's nothing additional for you to do!
  11. Why couldn’t they cancel the Jewels 12 day Baltic, and hold off making us decide until the deployment plans are announced for 2022, then allow us to L&S? On another thread someone suggesting compensation to RCCL was told they weren’t going to offer any because this was not covid related. Which is bull! Would anyone be able to share how to reach Mr. Bailey? When I calm down I would like to contact him. TIA
  12. Not very happy with RCCL right now. Booked our cruise on Nov. 11, 2019 for July 2021. RCCL seems to have forgotten us. Still have not heard anything from them. I questioned our TA she didn’t get anything either. She just called and said it was true. Maybe when they just cancel your cruise they don’t care enough to let you know. Maybe folks who can reschedule are the only concern.
  13. I know☹️. I don’t think it would be allowed anyway because is showing as cancelled not rebooking.
  14. I just have to vent. RCCL publishes a press release a few days ago “in error”. They remove it. Many people call in to confirm and it is denied or another vague answer is given. They send out emails to some—we haven’t received one—- but virtually the same wording as the “error”. Offer nothing in the way of compensation, no 125% , no L&S because they cancelled it. Then give you 5 days to decide. I am disgusted by this.
  15. I understand that point of view now, post virus. We booked this 2 years in advance, so as to have a chance of seeing everything we have dreamed of seeing. This was to be the trip of a lifetime. Who knew even when this nightmare began it would affect plans made 18 months in the future.
