  1. 'Haven't received it yet, TA tells me it will take weeks.
  2. I've cancelled our 4 night Caribbean cruise aboard the Brilliance and am re-booking using my FCC's. I'd like to not have to wait a whole year to cruise. When is a good time, i.e., no hurricanes or rain, and not broiling hot?
  3. The cancellation fee might have been charged by the travel agency (CruisesOnly.com). In my experience, hotels will allow cancellation >48 hours. I am impressed that you got a cruise for 2 for only around $700! It cost me closer to $1200. That speaks well for booking as far in advance as possible.
  4. Our cruise (same ship, same itinerary) was scheduled for April 9 and we cancelled, since the CDC's recommendations are very clear: no cruise ships, especially if you're over 60. We're in our 80's and there was no question that we're at risk. I had no problem cancelling and didn't lose a penny (only the cancellation fee of $100). We're getting a cash refund for part of the cost and future cruise credits (FCC's) for the rest, and are already talking to our TA to schedule an identical cruise at a later date. I really don't mind dying, I just don't want to suffer – and being confined to a cabin for 2 weeks and having a fatal pneumonia both strike me as suffering. So, why opt for it, when there's a choice? Wouldn't you rather go later?
  5. @AnnetteJackson It turns out I was mistaken about Stephanie having helped me before, it was Michelle, so I want to reach out to her. But there are two Michelles at MEI – Michelle Cunningham and Michelle McKnight. Which is the Michelle you all are raving about, and is there any way I can check which one was helpful to me previously?
  6. Thanks, PRebecca!! I'll stick with her, then.
  7. Today the Centers for Disease Control issued the following advisory: "CDC recommends travelers, particularly those with underlying health issues, defer all cruise ship travel worldwide." Also, "Older adults and travelers with underlying health issues should avoid situations that put them at increased risk for more severe disease. This entails avoiding crowded places, avoiding non-essential travel such as long plane trips, and especially avoiding embarking on cruise ships." Here's the source: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/page/covid-19-cruise-ship I think cruises may be cancelled. I cancelled my cruise and got 25% back as a refund and the rest as Future Cruise Credit.
  8. Thank you, that's exactly what I needed to hear!
  9. I've not used MEI before but I plan to. I think it was Stephanie who helped me once, but I've heard so much good stuff about Michelle. Do you have any recommendations?

      Hey - sorry just logging in on the boards today.  All of the agents listed in that string are great.  If you have an issues with any of them you can come to me and I will re assign you, or if you want to let me know more of how you tend to book, when you like to work with someone on your bookings,  email, text or calls.... knowing some of this can help me find an agent that works the way you prefer to work.

      Stephanie is on Mariner right now coming home tomorrow, so I can jump in and help you while we wait for her to return home, or i can put you in touch with an agent that is working today.

      Just let me know.

  10. Does anyone have experience with Stephanie at MEI? She was helpful to me once and I'm thinking of booking with her, but I hear a lot about how great Michelle is.
