  1. Can we find humor in a serious topic? I, literally, joke about EVERYTHING. Nothing is off limits, in my family.....I cant tell you how many times ive typed replies on this board and thought......"better not...might be crossing some line." We figure, dont take anything in life so serious, because none of us get out of here alive. As for the Tropical Party.....SIGN. ME. UP. I think Jimmy Buffett is on lifetime contract to perform at the convention. Can you imagine how damn tired he must be of singing that song???? God love him....I appreciate his patience.
  2. Over the past few years, I've embraced enjoying fruity concoctions and things like Corona Refrescas and hard seltzers. My "coronavirus drink" has been Mai Tais, followed closely by Piña Coladas. Before it was all bourbon and craft brews. Don't get me wrong, I still love a good bourbon, and a good beer....but there is something about "vacation drinks" that just put me in a good frame of mind... probably the liquor.....but either way, enjoy! That sounds amazing!
  3. I have nothing to say, cruise related. Just wanted to say cheers, and hope everyone is having a great weekend. I'm spending the week at the beach with the wife and kiddos...NO WORK. It's not a cruise...but things could be worse..... I hope everyone takes a moment, in the near future, to reflect on this time, and hopefully come away from it with a better perspective. Easy for me to say, I know, but all the same....hope we can all approach this crazy time with some positivity and optimism.
  4. I would have thought that means you cant give it to someone else?
  5. Wow.....so this is a good reason not to apply FCC till you have to.
  6. This all has me: So then, not at all what I thought it was. MY BAAAAD. I can see how that would be frustrating, especially at these times when cruisers like you have several cancelled sailings and too much FCC to juggle. My only wish is that I can apply cruise credits from ONE CABIN to ONE CABIN how I wish. Meaning, we got FCC independently for me, my wife, and my boys in different amounts....I wish I could distribute that how I wish within the cabin. TA seems to think if she calls enough times, she should be able to get someone on the line that will do that....but yet to be de
  7. Maybe I misunderstand. The way I understood it, if you have multiple FCCs they will be combined into one. So, there would be no need for multiples?
  8. Heeeeeeeeeeeeeey! @WAAAYTOOO @twangster Ask and ye shall receive..... https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2020/06/26/you-can-combine-future-cruise-credits-instead-of-separately-being-reissued
  9. Lets hear some more "bad situation, turned good" stories?!?!?!?!
  10. Seems that, in these unprecedented times, when theyre allowing many things theyve never allowed before......this would be a no brainer? Im sure there are a LOT of people that have had multiple cruises cancelled in all this. Sure, from a business standpoint, I get why you would want one FCC applied to one cruise.....it encourages multiple cruises. But, goodwill and flexibility go a long way in business, also! I know that Im making a concerted effort to remember the companies that did things they didnt have to do during this craziness.
  11. Heck man, I dunno. Maybe you have multiple cruises? I know I havent applied my FCC yet (TA said we would wait till closer to final payment date to make sure repricing and using FCC is a cleaner process). My only thought was that at first, they were making you pay a deposit and FCC wasnt used. So Im sure at that time, ALL bookings could have looked "new" even though they were people with FCC.
  12. OH, OH, I WANNA PLAY!!!! I like silver linings. I had a sailing booked on Rhapsody, because it was the only ship going to Roatan (the only request my Honduran wife made for the cruise) the week we could go. THE WHOLE WEEK. Crazy. But, thanks to our dear friend Covid-19, we were cancelled, and rebooked for a sailing in 2021 that goes to Roatan, AND Coco Cay, on HARMONY. This will be my 1st Oasis class! AAAAAND were going from an ocean view to an ocean balcony!!!!
  13. @sk8erguy1978 and @ellcee just made my day.
  14. I have no doubt they observe. That is just smart business to gauge the pulse of your customer....but participate? Nah.....they dont want to risk blurring those lines. If they do have a mole....I hope theyre smart enough to not be outed!
  15. What I said is "I dont see how they KNOW that" and it was in regards to RC saying "FCC bookings werent that substantial." Maybe I need to expand on that. Before they were allowing you to use FCC to make a deposit, you had to make a reservation and pay a deposit. So, wouldnt they ALL look like new bookings since that is the normal? As of now, I just have a balance that I can pay any way I want. FCC, Credit or Debit card....they dont know how I will take care of that balance. And I know they dont participate here.....I guess my wording was confusing? I dunno.....
  16. SC is one of the states that is seeing numbers skyrocket. I go two hours west, and im fly fishing and backpacking in the mountains. I go three hours east, and im in Charleston, eating Shrimp n Grits, and relaxing on the beach. Does it get any better? Restrict me to my own state all you want. Wait.....nevermind.....its HORRIBLE here. You shouldnt move here. We have all kinds of poisonous snakes and spiders....STAY AWAY!
  17. I dont see how they KNOW that? I have FCC, but when I rebooked it was a new reservation and I paid a deposit. Who is to say I am, or am not using my FCC on THIS cruise? I am....but they dont know......
  18. Me, seeing that headline and opening this thread to see what's being talked about...
