  1. I miss CK!! 😩 I have to keep cooking dinner these days!
  2. @rshov reading this brings a smile to my face as you and Rebecca remind me of Hubby and I. We also stumbled onto Adventure of the Seas, total newbies, flew in the morning of, and almost missed our flight and cruise. I laugh at my 20 something year old self then. We fell in love with cruising right away. From Adventure, we sailed two more RC ships before sailing on Oasis. We were in such awe when we stepped on board her! Cannot wait to read the rest of this blog. And thank you for the distraction.
  3. Yes. That is correct. The FCC should reflect cruise fare only. Others come back separately. @WannaCruise I am assuming you got your back then right? Still nothing for us.
  4. @jaullram thank you for such a great distraction and taking the time to do this. One question that I have been wondering through this blog. With a large group, did you find it hard to organize dinners/shows/activities together or did Yen make it pretty seamless?
  5. It is not a reflection of your actual C&A status. It is a fun thing that @Matt created and its related to the number of posts you make. As you post more, the status will change.
  6. I also came to realization during the first round of cancellations that a good TA is so valuable! I had my back up cruise booked a few days before our actual sailing got cancelled. It makes it more bearable lol.
  7. Other than being #TeamDeck17, I like Deck 12 the best.
  8. I am with you πŸ’― on all those points. I feel like every day their PR nightmare just gets worse and worse.
  9. @Chadster inside info tells me that they are literally all over the place today. Maybe give it a few days before you decide anything.
  10. @mworkman I like you a whole lot but I'm sorry...that looks so unappetizing! πŸ€’πŸ˜„
  11. I was also part of the first round of cancellations. Nothing came back yet, no taxes and fees, no shore excursion charges, and no FCC.
  12. I just found out this morning, that your FCC can be expedited in that case. A TA needs to call on your behalf.
  13. Actually you can. If you call RC direct, their agents can also hold until May 31st for you. I've heard of a few who did that and it worked. But I prefer to work with a TA.
  14. No, if you are booking a sailing that offers KSF, then you cannot use the FCC on your child at all. Reason is that the FCC must be applied to cruise fare and with KSF, your child is technically not paying any cruise fare (just taxes and fees).
  15. I haven’t noticed anything on my end but maybe @Matt can shed some light here. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
  16. Your FCC will be issued by the cruise fare paid by each guest and not by cabin. You mentioned that you booked under KSF so that means your child just paid taxes and fees. You will likely not get back an FCC for the kids. Just for guests who paid a cruise fare.
  17. @dodgestang you can most definitely use your FCC on an existing booking. I have done it twice, latest being just in December 2019 to my cancelled sailing in March.
  18. Do you already have a deposit on the July 15th sailing? If not, you can maybe reach out to a good TA and have them hold the July sailing for you for now, at least until final payment date and the possibly they can extend you until you get your FCC?
  19. According to my understanding, your leftover FCC can be applied to another sailing once your June 28th sailing is completed.
  20. Yes. Another reason to use a good TA. πŸ˜‰
  21. Actually, as of March 18, 2020, Royal has a new policy in place where you do not have to put a deposit down right away and you can wait for your FCC instead: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2020/03/21/royal-caribbean-letting-travel-agents-place-hold-cruise-reservations-through-end-of-may
  22. If they do cancel your cruise, there's an online form to fill out for refunds. You will get the link in the cancellation email. You do not have to go through your TA. At least that is how it was for this first round of cancellations.
  23. @MadamG2U that is such a heart warming story. Hoping for a similar experience with my parents at the end of this year. We have the Villa booked on HM with them. A treat for my Mom’s 70th birthday. Praying that this whole mess blows over by then and we can all go.
  24. I think it only entitles you to a full refund in the form of a FCC, not cash refund.
  25. No refunds. But I did not get a run around from them, zero nonsense. They let us re-book another flight that was less than the one we lost. And the remainder of the money can be used at any time, no questions asked. I just really appreciated that compared to some of the run around things I have heard from some other companies.
