  1. I don't believe you have past the 30 days, yet.
  2. I've been wrong many times before, but I think that since the OP cancelled before RCL cancelled, they will receive 100% of their base fare, not the 125% if RCL had cancelled (before the OP cancelled). This is exactly what happened to us. YMMV.
  3. Did you use a TA or did you speak with on of RCL's agents on the phone?
  4. My son has to take an athletic physical every year to play High School soccer. . . Doctors DO sign patient waiver as such.
  5. +1 AND +1, two cruises applied
  6. +10000000000000000000 for Sharla at MEI
  7. That's why I stated that. If the government bails them I, that's what they will do. I hate that. Plus, with 2B USD borrowed from their line of credit, that action will over leverage the company. I can hear the toilet flushing, already.
  8. I thought about clarifying and then thought "nah". I should have. Yes, NO ONE will be buying in the near future. I am talking about in the next 3 to 5 years. Vision, in your hypothetical, will be worth more. Cut it from the fleet, raise the cash, and get rid of the debt. . . There WILL be buyers, maybe even now, poised to make a purchase at sale prices. But my message to RCCL, DON'T BUY BACK COMPANY STOCK!
  9. I'm JUST starting to homebrew (gathering supplies)! Tired of going to fill growlers when I could do it at home! Also, working on my sourdough starter! Gonna brew with that, too! Cheers!!
  10. Juxtaposing your ideas onto RCCL's situation, why not ride out the storm as it were, but leave some ships in port/drydock when the industry is moving again. Sell a part of the fleet to raise cash, unless that's the plan to bring down the debt. I think RCCLs strategy is like hoping a band-aide will hang on during a long, hot shower.
  11. You better believe it! And, I have others without debt and I have others that do have debt (not as many, though).
  12. I suspect that RCL and the bank can re-write the line of credit terms when nearing the two years and extended it out over mannnnnnny years. Banks love that. Agreed, glad I haven't bought stock. Prefer to invest in companies with no debt on their books.
  13. I canceled the cruise planner orders fourteen days ago. The refunds have just started appearing on my CC in the last 24 hours! I'm hoping there is more because the refunds that I've received so far do not add up to the cruise planner purchases made with my CC. And that is something you need to be aware of, check to make sure that your CC purchases match your CC refunds and don't throw in any OBC into the mix.
  14. Hi @Kathleen, I didn't take your question as rude at all. We selected Quantum because the price was a bit less than Ovation, and we will now be in a GS-2 bedroom, so that's why. If you sail Alaska again and can swing it, I'd suggest one of the open-jaw sailings that Radiance does and spend some time in Anchorage! When we go for the third time (summer 2022), we will do just that again. Also, I think it will be at least 6 to 12 months before sailings start up again. I also believe that the industry as a whole will take a PR beating and will see overall bookings drop for years to come. Therefore, I think that pricing will come down a lot and that our fare will fall further. Will still stay with Quantum and will enjoy any rate drops for a Radiance sailing.
