  1. Hi Everyone, my apologies if this has already been covered, but I find FCC rules so hard to follow and they seem to be constantly changing. I have a cruise booked for early 2021, where the deposit was paid for with FCC. I'm going to cancel under the "cruise with confidence" program and I was wondering if anybody knows if the FCC will be reissued as a new FCC -or- if it will just be added back to the original FCC. The original FCC still has a ton of $ leftover, as the FCC was applied under a different sale than what I intended to book (I was trying to book a BOGO60 deal where person 1 was
  2. Thanks everyone. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one. I guess their computers must automatically default to non-refundable.
  3. Has this happened to anyone else? I always book refundable cruises since I book them years ahead of time and am never sure what might happen. I had two spring break cruises booked for Mar 2021 on Liberty, but they were cancelled earlier this year for the expected drydock. Royal allowed me to move one to June 2021 on the Liberty and one to Mar2021 on Adventure, each with some OBC for my inconvenience. When the Liberty drydock was cancelled and the original cruises returned to be able to book, I cancelled the Adventure cruise and rebooked my original Mar2021 Liberty cruise. However, it turn
  4. Thanks, I think the new cruise should be covered by CWC. According to the website: That’s why Royal Caribbean will let you cancel any cruise that sets sail from now through April 30, 2022. Whether it’s a booking you already have or one you make right now through August 1, 2020, you’re covered. As long as you cancel at least 48 hours before your sail date, you’ll receive a Future Cruise Credit. The credit is valid to book and sail by December 31st, 2021 or 12 months after the date that you cancelled your original sailing — whichever is further. I know things have changed and the FCC
  5. Hi all, I normally book refundable fares (like Matt suggests) for the flexibility. I'm looking into booking a cruise using my FCC and I'm wondering if I should book a non-refundable fare instead. It seems like if something happens, I can cancel with the cruise with confidence policy and I would be reissued the FCC, right? Am I missing any fine print? The difference between refundable and non-refundable is ~ $200.
  6. Thanks everybody. I was reading on a different board that there is even more fine print that they didn't tell us. It sounds like if you don't use your FCC completely for the first cruise, you have to wait until the first cruise returns before they will issue the remainder as a new FCC, no exceptions. So ideally, you need to make sure the final payment for your second cruise is a few weeks later than when your first cruise returns, to give them time to re-issue it. In addition, my TA said royal also needed a few weeks before final payment to use the FCC certificate in the first place. My
  7. So I finally got my long awaited FCC from my cancelled March 15 cruise (I took the cruise with confidence offer a few days before they cancelled). Now I'm looking into applying it to my 2021 cruises that I've already booked and I'm running into some issues with how the credit was parsed out. Since Royal doesn't just split the FCC and divide it by the number of people, everybody has a different amount of FCC and I'm finding myself having a hard time using it based on Royal and their weird promotions. So example, I have $~1600 in FCC, my husband has $600, my son has $700 (rounded for clarit
  8. Which part isn't working? I was able to choose the cruise, room, fill in all my info, get to the window where you select the refundable option, and then I stopped there and went through my travel agent to actually book.
  9. are now available to book (Nov 2021 to April 2022). There is a 4 night sailing, then all the itineraries are the same: 7 day cruises leaving Sundays, going to Roatan, Costa Maya and Cozumel. I'm so excited we are getting an Oasis class ship in Galveston!
  10. Thanks for the replies. I'm glad to hear we no longer have to stalk the walls. It was always so hard to find photos. I remember finding all ours and placing them behind each other, as we didn't want to buy early ones in case future ones turned out better. And then the royal photo people would just move them around so you had to keep finding them. Looking forward to seeing how the kiosks work.
  11. These are showing up the same price in my cruise planner. While doing research, it appears most people purchase the digital package. What is the advantage of the digital package over the print? It seems to me that the print package would be superior since it would cost extra to print my favorite digital photos after. Is there something I'm missing? I am sailing on Liberty. Does RCCL still print all photos and then you have to search for them on the walls?
