    RBRSKI reacted to Ampurp85 in SALE ?   
    It looks to be 2021 dates, I saw a couple of really cheap 4 and 5 day cruises on Indy, Nav and Mariner. I was thinking about a S2S since my vacation this year has been postponed.

    RBRSKI got a reaction from Baked Alaska in SALE ?   
    Hello,
    Trust me I know "Sales are always happening"  LOL.   I am like a "chicken hawk", I check certain ones everyday, multiple times, that why I got excited when I read sales are still happening!  Maybe the sales are for cruises that aren't as popular like Alaska 2020  LOL

    Good Afternoon Gang,
    Who's sailing for Turkey Day 2020?
    Will be sailing (fingers, toes and anything else crossed for good luck) on the Indy B2B starting 11/19 (it's not my dream come true 3 Weeks on the Oasis that got cxl'd from COVID 19) . 
    Scored the corner aft 1400 for both cruises.

    Finally received refunds today related to cruises that were cxl'd in March.  Can't figure out all of the amounts though.

    Like I said, the deposits went back to main fund source and refunds went back to deposit source and no notifications  anywhere along the way... The FCC's they seemed not wanting to part with them even more... I think I heard the agent sigh when I did as I said I would and made my new bookings paid in full as I said I would...  They worked with me on the one booking price which was brutally tough and long to get done. The second booking price had not changed in weeks and was easy... I'm positively ecstatic  about finally getting this settled and gonna spend countless hours in the cruise planners...

    Some have followed as I have chronicled my refund and FCC ordeals... It was not my intention to sound like a whiner but I'm sure it sounded that way... It was an unbelievable ordeal that has finally come to a grinding halt. Friday was a turning point after a 2 hour hold then that long  trying to clear things. Promises made did not come through and last night was a marathon 6 hour scorched earth session...  I never saw such an insult to intelligence as I witnessed from them last night. Its a shame that it had to go there... I went into that one with all my notes and homework done. They had nowhere to hide eventually and expedited my refunds and FCC's. Tonight, docs came through finalizing everything. I kept my end of the bargain by making the new bookings I had promised to make. I will sleep soundly and dream of Harmony for November and Indy for April... Its a crying shame it had to be the way it was... I know full well the ordeal they are going through...  I sympathize. ..  Still no excuse to deliberately mis lead as they did... Thats astern of us now... Let get back to cruisin!

    RBRSKI reacted to Matt in New Deployment Schedule   
    While I don't disagree that new sailings equals more revenue, I don't see them releasing earlier due to the pandemic. If anything, I could see the opposite occurring because the processes for booking up port slots and scheduling may otherwise not be available or busy with other pandemic-related tasks.  Basically, it seems to me everything at RC is on hold right now until sailings resume.

    Some companies are not even offering refunds at this time, but rather only FCC , so imagine their frustration.

    RBRSKI reacted to Matt in Club Royal certificates ...worthless   
    Because they were just that: freebies. Unlike a cruise you paid for, these specific sailings were listed as available for no cost. That's not to say there wont be others in the future, but I don't think it's reasonable to expect a free sailing to be transferable. If it were the case, the casino would offer any sailing for free, instead of specific sailings.

    RBRSKI reacted to Matt in Club Royal certificates ...worthless   
    I don't think they aren't being loyal at all. I think they are being realistic given the company is hemorrhaging money on a daily basis.
    The freebies you got were given away in a vastly different economic situation, and I believe once cruising begins again, the casino will be more than open to welcoming you back with new offers. But I think expecting them to continue to mortgage their future to offer free cruises on sailings that may or may not happen right now is a reach.

    I will admit I am one of those people who tell the harsh truth in situations. I cannot understand blaming a company for being a company...especially in times like these. It is never about being a diehard fan but pointing out first world problems. That being said, I don't agree with not honoring Casino comps. I am not a gambler but if you have a program design to reward those who frequent the casino, it should be honored. If RCCI is willing to give refunds and 25% extra FCC for cancelled cruises, it should have at least extended a percentage of the casino certificates. Maybe work with that department to offer something in exchange. It takes a lot of time and money to earn those comps, they didn't expire.

    I’m in no way looking for a freebie. I’m only asking that they allow me to use the base gates that I paid for for myself or other family members who are still willing to cruise, instead of “sticking to their rules” when those two fares were for two women over 70 who have been advised by their doctors that they will not clear them to ever cruise again.  No freebies here for anyone except RCCL

    With the other carriers offering really sweet deals to get people back, I'm surprised RCCL is going the other way... 
    Looked again and the main "re book" is now double of what I would have been able to book it for if I had my own money back!

    We are also but are having second thoughts. The health aspects are certainly one major question but I dislike the thought of masking and distancing on what is supposed to be a vacation. I can't see myself enjoying the cruise under those circumstances, however necessary they might be, so why bother and waste the money? We have been cruising over Thanksgiving numerous times but we might have to miss it this year.

    We are on the Oasis of the Seas for the 11/22 Thanksgiving Cruise. So hoping this will happen. We have been looking forward to this trip for quite awhile.

    STILL WAITING FOR THE REST OF MY REFUND RELATED TO MY 3/15 SAILING ON THE OASIS!  Sorry for all the CAPS, and for those who think it was towards anyone on this blog your wrong, it just made me feel better this morning!   lol
    And not one penny from the 3/22 cruise.  Maybe Royal looks at this blog and know who are the most frustrated ones and says  " let not refund their money until the very last moment"  HAHA
