Of course Oceania July cruises will be cancelled; as well as August, September, and October. Oceania signaled that, with Step 1, when they moved final payment dates to sixty days prior to cruising. Now you’re merely seeing the start of Step 2, waitlisting all ( or nearly all) categories for July.

I don't believe so.  I think Royal has also entered into an agreement with Bermuda to homeport a ship there as well.

  As I said, O is beginning to cancel July. Asked if I wanted FCC or cash. Waitlist is part of process. Last year  O cancelled 21 WC we, received $ in a month. Celebrity took 4 months .On July cruise they also offered choice.

I called O agent Thurs.to notify them my  July 30 cruise mate just died. Female agent confided they were starting to cancel all July cruises and how did I want my deposit back.

Royal is homeporting Jewel of the Seas in Cyprus this summer and Vision of the Seas in Bermuda.

In addition Odyssey of the Seas will be homeporting in Haifa, Israel and Adventure of the Seas in Nassau, Bahamas.

Zoncom, I don't doubt that what the agent told you is likely to become true in the next two weeks or so, but they had no business saying that as it hasn't been announced . 

Even if the agent were 100% wrong you were going to get your deposit back as you cancelled before the final payment due date.

Isn't the refund in the form of FCC if you cancel?

I think normally Oceania has no penalty to cancel until less than 120 days (250 admin fee), 90 days, after final, there are percent penalties. It seems it is anything over 60 is now fully refundable.

If the deposit was paid in cash and you're cancelling before the final payment due date (as was the case here) you get cash back. You get FCC only if it was paid by FCC.

Thanks for the reply.  In my case though my TA also applies a cancellation fee if I cancel, so I just have to wait on O.

Well, maybe this has changed by now, but about 8 hours ago, I checked all the July sailings and found a mixed bag.  Nautica (4 from Europe), Insignia (6 from NY), and Regatta (4 from Seattle) cruises were showing wait lists in every category on every cruise, Sirena (5 from Europe) had everything WL except for one category on one cruise.  Riviera's 2 cruises, both Europe, had a good number of categories available.  Marina's 3 cruises all had availability (Europe). So whether the computer programmers are still working through all the cruises, or something else is happening, who knows?

Yes - so far it is just the July departure cruises that went to all waitlisted....we are on the first portion of your cruise that begins in Copenhagen on the 27JUL (North Cape Jewels) and it went to all waitlisted on Saturday 😞

The other factor for cancelled Baltic cruises is four countries are locked down, five others require isolation to enter the country.  Chances of any Baltic cruise is next to nil unless you have no shore excursions.

I'm not sying I believe anything will go out in July.  But yesterday not everything had been canceled.

The post you quoted  by me  #28 was about  RCCL ships home porting  in Cyprus .. nothing to do with O cancellations

 I have said for months there will not be cruising  this summer

 

 I know it is hard to follow  the  replies but if you quote a post be sure to check what you are quoteing pertains to your reply
