  1. Thanks
    Lovestotravel got a reaction from Tammy H. in how long for refund   
    I am happy to report, that we cancelled our May 31 cruise on April 20th (after RC cancelled all sailings through June), and today we have received almost our complete refund.  We are a few hundred short, but so far 4 credits have been deposited to my card, with the largest being the full cruise fare.  So, less than 30 days and we basically have our refund.  I don't know if this makes a difference or not, but we booked with a TA and she handled the refund request.

    Yes, that is a good proactive feature, as long as they wash it each time!  And, I always check the mattress seams.....with a flashlight.....my kids think I am nuts. ?

    You won’t lose your deposit. You will either get a fcc or potentially a full refund.

    This!  Get your luggage held at your hotel early in the morning Sunday (space is sometimes limited because lots of cruisers take advantage of this).  Then go explore and go to the port in the afternoon.
    Barrachinas also offers luggage storage which you could take advantage of both before and after the cruise.

    Hello! We are heading on FOS at the end of March. We fly into San Juan Saturday evening, and we set sail on Sunday. We are hoping to explore San Juan before embarkation (because we won’t have a lot of time on Saturday), but we aren’t sure the best way to do it. 

    Would it be best to arrive to the pier early on Sunday, check in with our bags, and then grab a taxi back to Old San Juan? Is there a better way to plan this?

    Now looking after disembarkation - on a previous sailing, we signed up for the excursion where we could explore San Juan before our flight with airport drop off, but because of our flight time this trip (2:30pm) we aren’t able to do the same excursions. Any suggestions for what to do between disembarkation from the ship and an afternoon flight?

    I think this is super important to note, that "all GOOD TA's" should do this.  We have TA (not an MEI agent), and I had to repeatedly reach out to her, to ask her to re-price when I would see others saving money on our fb group.  Once she acted like it wasn't a thing. Finally after pushing her, she did it and saved us a few hundred.   But, I am certain if I had another agent, we could have saved more.  And, she only did it after me practically begging her to do it.  She also didn't know how OBC worked.  SOOOOO, I have learned a lesson! I will only use a TA in the future who comes recommended from this blog!!

    You're not wrong, and it's why I always try to explain how not all TAs are the same.

    It only pops up on the crew interface - like so they can verify someone isn't using your sea pass card to get a drink. No one else will see it.

    The best thing about checking in early is you will not forget to do it later.

    You know those days when you're tempted to list your children for sale on Facebook? Just saying my answers may be skewed a little today. ?‍♀️
    We cruise to vacation together without always having to be together...it's nice to ship the kids off the AO so DH and I can have a little grown up vacation time too.
    Right now I would take any ship...going anywhere...as long as it was solo.
    On a side note...Anyone need a helping hand or two around the house? They can take out the trash, unload, the dishwasher, work in the yard...anyone? No? Serenity now!

    My friend just posted that they were denied entry in Cozumel. The Mexican government let them dock and health officials boarded to run tests on the crew member and a passenger with flu symptoms. No official word on the test results, but he said they were not allowed off the ship. They were told today they are getting a 100% refund. This is a 15 day cruise, btw. Who knows if they we will able to get off anywhere at this point with the exception of the private island stop. They still have 2 more ports.

    Ditto. I thought we were being responsible by waiting to have kids.....turns out being responsible isnt as important as being physically able.
