    A client of my hubby told him that his sister is/was given one of the test vaccines and has had no ill effects from it so far.  At least they are "really" in the testing phases.  Fingers crossed!!

    Our Lift and Shift for both rooms were moved to a new date in 2021 and the other room with the KSF remained price protected as well.  My great nephew will be sailing under this offer and he will be 13.
    Thanks to MEI for making this happen.

    whitsmom reacted to WAAAYTOOO in Moving a Casino Comp Cruise due to Cancellations   
    I wanted to report on my success with moving a casino comp cruise that was cancelled in this latest round of cancellations. 
    We had a Symphony Eastern Caribbean booked for 1 August using a casino comp offer.  Of course, this cruise was a victim of the latest round of cancellations. I held out little hope of being able to move this cruise to a later date (I had heard of scarcely a few successful attempts at getting a casino comp moved) but much to my surprise, I was successful in moving this cruise to Feb 13, 2021 with full price protection on the original casino booking. I had upgraded this inside room comp to a JS for $258 PP so I was delighted that the original upgrade price was honored.
    This is not a Lift & Shift, in that I could not book further out than 2-28-21 but I also was not required to maintain the same itinerary....in other words, I wasn’t required to book another Eastern Caribbean.  I booked a companion cruise to my already-booked 6 Feb cruise, turning my 6 Feb into a B2B.  Apparently they are allowing cancelled casino comp cruises to be moved to a qualifying cruise between 1 Oct 2020 and 28 Feb 2021.  I know the next question will be, what constitutes a qualifying cruise ?  I cannot answer that question as I was moving a 7 night Symphony cruise to another 7 night Symphony Cruise, but I CAN tell you that they didn’t care that I was changing from an Eastern Caribbean to a Western Caribbean, so it’s not a tradition L & S.
    Maybe I just got very lucky and got a good casino CS Rep but it was very easy and handled efficiently and quickly.  I was able to get my airfare moved over from the August to the Feb itin with no problem. There was a $4.20 difference in the cruise fare due to differences in taxes/port fees and a $60 difference in airfare. All of my Cruise Planner purchases were automatically cancelled, and will be refunded.  I will have to rebook for the replacement cruise.
    All-in-all, a huge surprise at how easy it was.  I am lead to believe it is a new “policy” for cancelled casino comps.  A bit of good news in an otherwise sea of bad news.

    I used Lift & Shift to move my Iceland & Greenland cruise on Celebrity from Aug 2 of this year to Aug 1 of next year. Not 100% the same cruise -- Sydney, NS replaced with Kirkwall, Scotland; and the disembark is now in Southampton instead of Dublin. But close enough for government work, as my advisor in college always said. 🙂

    whitsmom reacted to Dad2Cue in Price drop on DX pkg. How long is refund taking?   
    Yes ... I really wish that I could just "buy" OBC instead of making cruise planner purchases with my credit card.  When there is a cruise planner sale,  I'm starting to think that saving $20 isn't worth the hassle of waiting and constantly wondering if the refund will materialize---no fun.

    In April, I cancelled and re-booked the UBP and received my refund in 7 days.  In May 17th and cancelled and re-booked my VOOM and I still haven't received my credit.  When I looked into it, they told me that it will take 30 days...

    She had a lung lobe torsion and had to have part of her right lung removed last Wednesday.  She's still in the hospital. We're hoping she can come home in the next day or two. Thanks for asking 🙂

    As I mentioned earlier, I was able to L&S our August 2020 Alaska cruise to the same ship, same room and a week earlier next August. Yesterday I was able to upgrade our cabin from a spacious cabin for an aft cabin on deck 10 of course I will have to pay a little extra. But an aft cabin on an  Alaskan cruise!! This was ll done with the assistance of Michelle at MEI.

    Time for you to head up to BWI and hop on Southwest. Round trip nonstop was 293. And no checked baggage fees.
