  1. I'm based in Palm Beach but most of my work takes place at West End, Grand Bahama. Chub Cay between Nassau and Coco Cay, in the Berry Islands) is another favorite haunt. Then the little island of Bimini has served as a second home for years.. Walkers Cay at the north end of Abacos will reopen this year and if I can find a ride I will be there... I migrate from Bahamas to New Jersey also chasing sea serpents. My cancelled Indy that I should be on now resulted in a booking on Oasis out of that Jersey end of things. Hope that one goes.. If not It's simple. I will book again also for near future... Side note... They have really clamped down on their curfews and lock down... This one will be revisited 4/14.
  2. A lot of my business is in the little out islands that depend on boats like mine to support them. They don't have the same cushions we do to fall back on... I feel terrible for them...
  3. The curfew has been n place a few days and will be reviewed again on the 31st... Then likely stretch into May, per what I'm hearing from that side... I'm a boat captain... We got cancelled for April 4 on the Indy so I went north early to get a boat I use in Jersey ready. They basically shut off fishing. I was going to head back south and since I have been in the "hot spot", Florida doesn't want me back right now. Another client was going to fly me to the islands to pick up and bring his boat stateside then I saw this new info... So I guess sitting all alone in a big house in still cold Jersey is what I have to look forward to...

  5. Thanks for the heads up.As one of our posters points out its been discussed a lot on here. I recently got "surprised" like you and wrote on it as well. Can't hurt, especially now, to keep it a fresh and accessible thread to help others avoid confusion...
  6. They are a bit more on Oasis than I was looking at on Indy...4 units is about 45 a day... then 7 nights is over $300 just to keep in touch and remind them to get ready for dinner...
  7. China where this began is almost back to Normal... Work has resumed... All is good... A little more than 2 months end to end... While, yes, it could take a long time for vaccine or treatment , its more likely this will be long over before we ever get those things... Stay optimistic... Thinking doom and gloom does nobody, especially yourself , any good...
  8. My first go at Oasis class ship... In the past I have seen mention that some of RCL ships have ability to communicate on board via the App with no WiFi needed? Is Oasis one of them? Or do I need to get gouged on a bunch of vooms?
  9. Im seeing that we as USA citizens are really at the back end of the progression of this... South Americans as well but not significantly behind us. Remember too that they have the warmer climate that will not let this virus flourish very long... Some cases yest but large numbers not as likely... With proper screening in place I'm thinking that The April 11 is a little light but close to it we should be ok.
  10. I went for the refund when all was said and done... FCC just had far too many strings and conditions attached and didn't pay for far too much that I had already paid for in the initial booking. Today I got a fresh "Welcome" confirmation for one of two invoices (Have two rooms and two separate booking numbers) involved with the original booking??? Hoping I don't have issues collecting on the second? Or anything for that matter... Not being afforded my time dining on new booking though I requested it. Meanwhile my friend today got it on his booking for same trip. Did the check ins and not showing set sail on line or in App... Lots of bugs to still work out...
  11. I am taking advice from a few people who have pointed out the strings tied to FCC really don't make a lot of sense for me... It would force me into taking a second cruise before Dec.7, 2020. Or lose whats left over from this one (which is enough to buy a fairly substantial cruise). I filled out the "refund " stuff but no confirmation back from them yet... I know its busy there so I won't push...
  12. Just hope they don't get confused and try to "credit me" . I had asked if I could use FCC for deposit and they said no. I put up a fresh $1000 deposit and they went on to tell me that whats left f the credit would have to be used within 6 months of the new trip I booked (June-Dec) ... I told them I was no longer really interested in FCC if they were going to put so many strings on it...
  13. Day later and things still showing active... Did the email link to cancel cruises/cruise credit and go for refund. No acknowledge email. Every thing still showing as it did...
  14. Hate be be a bother again but not knowing the answer has me asking questions again... Ok... I got the dreaded note along with so many that we had been cancelled... I detailed in another thread my dislike of having to shell out another $1000 in deposits when I have an already bloated FCC that I won't be able to spend as they are demanding I use it within 6 months of my next sailing? (Yeah I know, sounds weird to me too when I see all the July 2021 elsewhere)... Any way, I go to my main page... The cancelled trips are still showing active? More troubling is that all the stuff I bought in the Planner is being shown as still current?????? The gal last night said they were cancelled but they show very much active on purchase history and my calendar? There is a place to "modify" or "Cancel" . Do I need to manually cancel each item (loads of them on the two reservations for our two rooms) ??? Or might that upset the system??? My app only shows the cancelled trip as active and not the newly booked one as well...
  15. Clear that it doesn't... At times... One thing I have found though with RCL is their inconsistency... A gal in one of my Facebook groups was told that they will "return the deposit to the card it was drawn from" when the FCC actually becomes available... I have no idea... I do know that when I recently went for an upgrade I had five different stories from five reps and the last one made me happy as can be... Its with reasonable certainty that I will use the same tenacity I did negotiating the upgrade. (Which by the way is always done with full respect and cordiality to the person on the other end of the line...)
