  1. We received our full Cruise fare refund back to our credit card today. Here are our details, hopefully it will help those still waiting. 

    - Original sailing: April 5th, cancelled but RC

    - Requested refund: March 14

    - RC told me it was “processed” on March 16

    -Excursion refunds received on March 20

    -Full fare refund posted to our credit card on April 27th.  Exactly 30 business days from the “processing” date.  

    Hope that helps.

    I've patiently waited and my refunds have now been processed exactly as they offered.  It took 30 days for the credit card companies to get it and 3 more days for the credit card companies to post it to my account.  One was Visa and two were Amex. 

    Was it 30 days from your cruise, 30 days from the refund request, 30 days from when it was processed by RC?  Also 30 business days or 30 total days.  I’ve been told different things from RC as many others.  Just trying to gage the correct timeframe.  

  3. These tests may work for flights.  The likelihood that you would go from testing negative to being symptomatic on a even a 12 hour flight would be very low.  A cruise is much different, testing negative before you board provides no assurance that you would not become sick over the next 7 days.  Or even become an asymptotic carrier.  A snapshot in time doesn’t work for the cruise industry. 

  4. I requested a refund for our April 5th sailing on March 13 after RC email notifying of the cancellation of the sailing.   Spoke to RC today-my refund started processing on March 16.  They said to expect the refund back to my credit card by the week of April 27th (30 business days from the date of processing).

  5. I have a question-hopefully someone with much more knowledge than me would be able to answer.  Does the FCC have to be applied per person only?  For example-my husband and I book a cruise-cost is $4000 or $2000/person.  If he has $3000 in credit and I only have $1000.  Can he apply the entire $3000 to the total cruise fare or is he limited to only his per person fare and we would need to pay another $1000 out of pocket?  Just trying to figure this out before I cancel.  We have a suite-so the FCC will not distribute evenly and I’m finding it difficult to find an equivalent suite for a date we can sail. 

  6. We love NYC and especially eating in NYC.  Here are some of our favorites:

    Buddakan- https://buddakannyc.com. It is expensive, but the food is so good we still talk about it.  A sophisticated and very upscale experience.


    Ninja NYC- http://mobile.dudasite.com/site/ninjanewyork?url=http%3A%2F%2Fninjanewyork.com%2F&utm_referrer=#3031 this place is a super fun and unique experience.  My boys (10 & 15) loved it.  It is designed as a Japanese village and all of the servers are “Ninjas”, food is on fire, literally, they are sneaking and jumping out at you-it is super fun.   If you take the family-just tell them you are going to an Japanese place-don’t give away the secret-they will be totally surprised. Here’s a pic of our experience:


  7. If you are going to the 9/11 museum, you need to get a reservation.   The line for general tickets is usually VERY long.  I would definitely recommend going; it is quite a moving experience.   You can get tickets on-line and I think they are about $20/person.

    Also, you are going to NYC during the busiest time of year.  Timed tickets to the museums (the Met, Natural History) would even be a must for me.  The lines are outside to get in and at busy times could take 30 min to an hour to purchase tickets.


  8. I adore packing cubes!  We went on a 2 week trip to Europe last year and we each had only a carry-on suitcase and a backpack.  While I want to take all of the credit myself-it really is the work of the cubes.  Mine our the compression kind with a zipper in the middle to make them a bit flatter.  Totally recommend.   These are the ones we have from Amazon: LeanTravel Compression Packing Cubes Luggage Organizers for Travel with Double Zipper - Set of 3 - Color Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BFK15TW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_GWg1Db8RXFG80


  9. I haven’t stayed in an Aft balcony before but we have 2 planned-this spring on Oasis and one in summer of 2021 on Rhapsody.  I was super excited today because I got both corner Afts on the Rhapsody for our group.  Thought about being side-by-side but the extra room on the balcony is totally worth the little walk down the hall to see each other.
