Yes, another FCC comment. Sorry everyone. I cancelled my Thanksgiving 2020 cruise today. I had two rooms booked. One for me and DH and one for two 17 year old kids. I asked for the FCC for the teens to be put under my name since they will not be able to cruise in the next few years (starting college and have no idea of school schedules). I booked/paid for both rooms. RC said the teens are considered adults since they will be 18 in November and must have FCC in their name and this FCC will be issued in one month. I then asked that when they receive their FCC next month if they can book a cruise for themselves without me being involved. Well, of course not.
My thinking is -they are currently minors and can not legally be bound by a contract. And yet, they can be issued a FCC in their names to be used by them because they will turn 18 in November? And yet, they can not use this FCC without me being involved. So, why can their FCC not be issued to me?
So I will receive 4 FCC and two will never be used. I was planning to take the two teens FCC and apply it to a cruise for 2021 with my DH.
I did not realize the policy for FCC and minors and am disappointed in RC’s policy.
Anyone else have a similar experience?
Apologies for my rant and ineloquent explanation. Just fuming a bit at the moment.
