  1. That has always been my experience. One thing I have also found to my cost once in the past was the headline price was cheaper for the dining package so I cancelled my existing booking, only to find that when I rebooked the headline price did not include gratuities and in fact the total cost was more.
  2. I have had this issue in the past when I booked directly with Royal so I contacted them and they reapplied the OBC. As you used a Travel Agent I would contact them first and ask them to resolve with Royal.
  3. Yes that is right, if it doesn’t cover the full cost of the cruise they will issue a new FCC for the remainder. I think it would be best to book over the phone so the FCC can be applied without paying a new deposit.
  4. My suggestion would be to book one of cruises scheduled out of Sydney in December 2021 (The new short itineraries) using the FCC as given the COVID situation it will likely be cancelled by Royal and then you will be eligible for a cash refund. In the unlikely event the cruise does go ahead you can cancel up to 2 days before hand using 5he cruise with confidence policy and get a new FCC which will have a new expiry date.
  5. I recently booked an Australian cruise directly with RCI and received the survey.
  6. Our cruises for this year and next year have been cancelled as well. We decided to treat ourselves and book the Royal Loft Suite on Quantum in Apr 2023. We originally had a Owners Suite booked on Quantum but decided to YOLO as the price seemed reasonable plus we had a few 125% FCC to apply. It will be our first time in Star Class and we are very excited as we will have all our family with us. We also lifted and shifted one our Ovation cruises to October 2022 so we get and extra 2 nights for no extra cost. We will rebook the TP for Apr 2024 when it becomes available.
  7. We are booked on Quantum for 2023, I hope things are nearly back to normal by then otherwise we will be in trouble.
  8. Princess cruises has now cancelled Australian cruises through to 19 December 2021. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/princess-cruises-cancels-australia-cruise-holidays-through-december-19-2021-301323790.html I assume Royal won’t be too far behind. I have paid for all our cruises in full to optimise the 125% fcc to use when we rebook.
  9. I am assuming our Transpacific in April will be cancelled eventually which will be very disappointing as the whole extended family was going. Even though we are fully vaccinated it is very frustrating but being able to plan anything with any certainty.
  10. Yeah, we were due to be on Ovation from 3rd - 23rd November. We are also the Transpacific in April but that is not too good either. Looks like we will have to wait until next season ?
  11. We have 3 booked for November which were originally last November.
  12. No surprise really but final payments have been suspended while RCI review port closures and possible changes/cancelations.
  13. It depends on the country you are in. In Australia or New Zealand you lose the whole deposit which is either $200 or $400 depending on the length of the cruise. When booking a non refundable cruise you will see the fine print by clicking on cancellation policy on the guest information screen of the booking screen.
  14. Nope, unfortunately its never a Victoria's Secret model charter cruise
