  1. Our kids are a little older (9 and 12 on last sailing)....and they eat everything....but it isn't fair to the other diners to take kids to chef table...it really is an 'adult' experience. Our kids go to buffet when we do the chef's table and/or something like Johnny Rockets.....last time we were out the Genie stopped by the room with popcorn and watched a movie with them for a couple hours (without us even asking)
  2. And update "45 days for refund"........let's start that clock ticking but not hold my breath.
  3. Just got my cancel notice.....already on hold to get full refund process started
  4. Since I just paid the balance on my Holiday 2020 cruise....I'm sure it will be officially cancelled within days
  5. I have repriced 2. 1 - Dec 2020 repriced just before final payment.....hundreds more. 2 - July 2021 Alaska repriced because even though I lifted/shifted (and it was paid in full) I wanted to apply my prime cert to it......would have saved me.....drum roll...............$200
  6. Considering a few Carnival subs have announced now closed through the end of year.....the Holiday cruise season appear dead. I have final payment for Christmas on the Anthem due in like 20 days now.....so we will be making the big decision of shifting shortly.
  7. They also added a new feature......a listing of itineraries right in the website so you don't have to call and find out the one you want isn't available
  8. Well.....Casino wasn't putting out any loyalty offers....but I can tell that yesterday I got my first casino cruise offer in about 6 months.....for sailings Q2 and Q3 2021....and of course neither sailing that I am on is on the list....so back to normal
  9. Stick the roll away in the little hallway behind the stairs to the small second balcony and its almost like you have your own harry potter room
  10. Final update here. I have added up all the posted and pending credits now from both the April 16 cancelled cruise and the August cancelled cruise and now it looks like I am over refunded $545.15 which means either I missed something I bought that was really large in cruise planner....or they messed something up. I wonder if they will at some point in the future reverse the credit. Either way.....I guess we're all good here finally.
  11. Markets will probably tank on Monday thanks to what happen in Atlanta on Friday night.
  12. I made the post May 14 (the day I manually cancelled all my cruise planner items for a cruise that was still schedule to sail in August) and finally saw SOME (not all) of the over 6k in cruise planner items back to my CC today.....so 30 calendar days. I made this post a month ago because it had taken 60+ days to get refunds of cruise planner items from an April cruise that had been cancelled and they closed us out of cruise planner so we couldn't manually cancel things. I have cancelled cruise planner items many times and received a refund systemically in a matter of single digit days (a
  13. Well here we are....30 days after I manually cancelled my cruise planner items for a cruise that was ultimately cancelled....I finally just started seeing some of the refunds come through...still about 2k short.....but I'll take what I can get at this point. Hopefully the rest will show up soon enough.
  14. It would be nice....but the kids will have school so we have to cruise around their schedules. in 2019 when we sailed for the holidays....they were off the week before Christmas so technically hadn't taken a holiday cruise...we got back on the 23rd or 24th...even though it felt like one.
  15. I know it's my own fault for losing track of the fine print....... Just did a lift and shift, after it was done I thought to myself...'Self....while you are on the phone, lets use that prime cert' So give the nice lady reservation number 1 - ohhhh so sorry sir....that's a holiday cruise, can't use it. So give the nice lady reservation number 2 - ohhhh so sorry sir.....that's a 9 night, only good for an 8 night. So give the nice lady reservation number 3 - ohhhh so sorry sir.....that's the cruise you just 'lifted and shifted' and it was already past final payment even though
  16. 2021 is going to be a weird year.......we've got Oasis July 30 from NYC to Caribbean and now Alaska on the August 15th...guess I'll be taking a laptop and working for at least part of the cruises this year.
  17. Well seemed easy enough....moved from Aug 2 2020 to Aug 15th 2021 easily enough. Two reservations moved in 10 minutes...and they cancelled the 'room hold' reservation I had done a few weeks ago without blinking an eye. We are sailing in a Royal and a Grand...and since there is only 1 royal....I had reserved it thinking it might become hard to get the room category if we were force to do a lift and shift. Still waiting on those cruise planner refunds from two weeks ago though
  18. While Royal hasn't said anything....given Canada just announce port will be closed through Oct.....time to go for the lift and shift into 2021 Very sad
  19. I decided to add 600 sq/ft to my garage. And since a tree fell on it damaging one of the eaves I was able to get it done during lock down because it was covered under essential construction because the crew had to come out and repair that damage.....and since they could come out....they knocked out the addition....and loved me for it because otherwise they weren't working.
  20. I agree with you....still stuck playing the waiting game though. Since they haven't cancelled it.
  21. I'm sure I guaranteed us a small Alaska season by proactively cancelling all my cruise planner items...so I can buy them all back at a higher price just before leaving In other news....I haven't seen the refund on them yet Looks like sailings are now cancelled through July 31st.....so I guess that's another month of waiting before we will know for sure about Alaska on Aug 2
