Hurricane Florence

Recommended Posts

She is transversing the Chesapeake Bay as we speak.

Currently passing the mouth of the Potomac and Smith Island. She should be ready to pull into the berth almost as soon as Carnival Pride leaves.

We just drove by the port around 6. From a distance it looked like both ships were slowly passing each other. I'm pretty sure neither was at the dock

So what happened with these ships did they change itinerary? I leave on Thursday and now I'm worried is Florence going to stay alive and be a problem in Bayonne?

No reason to worry. The forecast is looking decent for NJ for Thursday.

Instead of sailing to Bermuda, Grandeur went to the Caribbean and stayed 2 or 3 extra days.

GOS was supposed to be back early Thursday. Didn't make it back to port until Sunday night. We were supposed to leave Thursday afternoon for a 9 night, 5 port cruise. Now we are only getting 5 nights, 1 port. We get into Halifax at 12:30 wed, leave 8:30 thurs am

Would have been good to be in GOS for a B2B.

 

Your first 5 nights, ends up to be 9, with half your cruise fare as OBC, and half as FCC. 9 nights for points.

 

Your 9, becomes 5, but you get a FCC for the missing nights, and OBC for the change, and full 9 nights for points.

 

So you have an almost free 2 week cruise, with 18 nights for points. :D

Just curious: What happens to cars stationed at lots? Do they just charge you the extra day(s) and let your car stay there?
I was on this cruise and there was no extra parking fee to the passengers.

No extra points giving on the GR 9 nights. Only 5 points Told by the C&A person

Hmm, I thought that some on the ship said they were told they would get the extra points.

 

And IIRC, the extended cruises last year got the extra points.

They gave you what you originally paid for. I don't think they've given extra points in the past, but a search might turn up something. The 5 night turning into 9 nights with the OBC and FCC was a lot to have received. 25 cruises and we've never been extended, but we do avoid Aug and Sept on purpose.

Got 10 points (instead of 7) on Oasis last year on the cruise extended by Irma, but no OBC or FCC.

Sounds like either or. More points but no credit or credit and no extra points. I wonder how they decide which to give.

I would probably call C&A and ask.

 

They could say no. Or they could give you the extra points. :D

Ok, but when on the phone what's your reasoning behind the request.

 

Now, on the short Oasis, Laura got both, but that was the offer.

Because cruise points are based on nights cruising. So if they keep you cruising longer, they should give the points.

 

And the refunds they gave, were for the itinerary change, not for the longer cruise.
