As in take your FCC and use it for the same cruise on a new booking? Excellent question. I do think it takes 3 weeks to process the FCC though.

Yes. You cancel your cruise and then receive cruise credit for a future cruise. You then rebook your existing cruise.

Was told it takes two to three weeks. If you get the credit in time you can apply it to your rebooked cruise.

I just read that they JUST added a line to the T&C, and the answer is "no".

Unfortunately you cannot rebook you’re existing cruise using the FCC.

Good! It seems that people were taking advantage of RCI to cancel and rebook well inside final payment date.  Glad they caught it. 
 

The wording is ambiguous though... it looks like you cannot rebook on the same ship...albeit a later date. I think this needs clarifying?  Especially when a ship does the same route week after week.

RCI has made it clear to TAs that the FCC cannot be used for the same cruise that it was awarded from.  you cannot cancel and rebook.

One could argue that RC are taking advantage by not offering full cash refund.

Always get a kick out of forum discussions

 

In one thread you have people opining about socially conscience corporatism and that the company needs to do more and be less greedy and care about the customers

 

Then in another thread you have people opining about ways to game the system and take financial advantage of the company that is trying to do the right thing

When I first saw the policy I saw they had a link to go and cancel your cruise.  I thought that was pretty neat.  No need to call.  Enter your information, get a confirmation email and then your FCC.  Only to find out that it's only a survey, not a link to cancel.  Wouldn't you think that it would be a LOT easier on everyone if there were a link to enter your info in?

 

Thanks for listening😇

Nope.

 

Q : How long will I have to redeem my Future Cruise Credit?
A : All Cruise with Confidence Future Cruise Credits must be redeemed on sailings departing on-or-before December 31, 2021.

If I am unable to take a cruise during that time hardly seems fair that I would lose my money

So your options are:

1) Do not cancel your June cruise.

2) Cancel and make time to cruise before Dec 2021.

3) Cancel and forfeit any non-refundable £.

 

Be grateful that Royal is even offering the option to cancel and provide FCC.

They are giving you over one 1/2 years to use it more like 1 3/4
