Delta Airlines also does the FCC or eCredit as they call it and not a refund.

I loved the way that Delta handled our whole mess last week.  Both my parents (who cancelled their Panama Canal cruise) and I booked through them and could not be happier.

Could you elaborate?  Did they do something above and beyond?  Refund or credit? Etc.?

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.

It was very easy to change my flight on the United app......However I am still trying to figure out what to do with my Air Allegiant flight as they do not offer refunds......credits only and we have nothing planned or booked in the next year that works with their flight routes/schedules.

You know, I'm honestly a bit concerned that even if this restriction is lifted on July 1, Canadians are not exactly going to be welcoming of visitors from other lands. I posted on Facebook that I was sad that I wouldn't be able to visit Canada at the moment because of the restrictions, but I was looking forward to doing so in the future (via a cruise of some form), and I was nearly tarred and feathered, at least virtually. ?

Maybe those people weren’t Canadian. Hardly a warm and friendly response. ?

Well as a Canadian I hope to be joined by many Americans (and other world travellers!) sailing from Vancouver on Serenade August 30!! 

Clearly both the US and Canada are going to need tourist dollars when this is over. The negative commenters are being impractical. We welcome you once the borders open!

I'm annoyed that RC is still advertising Canadian itineraries as "Canadian Itineraries" prior to July 1st in the Find a Cruise section.  There's no mention there about those ports being closed until then.  You have to find info like that in their Travel Restrictions area, or be on a website like this to know that.  I realize they still want to fill the ships, but wouldn't you think they'd put a little asterisk or something in the booking section explaining what their plans are for ports they already know are going to be closed?

You would think. Celebrity has several similar itineraries that are already being shown as having their ports changed to Nassau or Bermuda.

Interesting article about airlines and refunds.  They are required to offer refunds but are trying to find ways around the rules in many countries and requesting changes to refund rules.

Isn’t there now an extension of the ban on cruise ships in U.S. waters for another 100 days?

As a Canadian, I’m dismayed at States, institutions and people who do not see the value of social distancing and continue to downplay the extent and severity of the illness that Covid-19 causes for people of all age ranges. This virus will continue to flare up in communities for weeks and months to come, without a concerted effort to control it.

I, for one, do not want to see any Alaska-bound or ‘Fall foliage’ cruises make ports of call in Canadian waters this Summer and Fall.

Canadians are sacrificing much to try to control this virus, and we do don’t believe, as a society, that it’s “OK” for some of us to get sick and die in order for a majority to exercise their “liberties” and “entitled privileges”, esp. regarding unnecessary travel.

This is neither an “anti-American” nor “anti-tourist” sentiment, but rather a call to not be selfish.

Re-work your plans and book for 2021.

I can't even get my 911 dispatchers to social distance from each other, despite everything we've done to protect them.  It's hopeless.  I LITERALLY give up.

Not just Candians 'are sacrificing much to control this virus'. Everyone, all around the world, is. There are some uninformed statements out there saying we need to open things up before they know the full impact but who is living life right now? We're all living a different life than we were in 2019. I do understand your 'call not to be selfish' and I am with you 100%.

Things around me have pretty much shutdown but I'm curious how the holidays effect people's behavior. I already know I can't see any of my family and none of us will see anyone else but I have a few friends who think it's okay to see their family for the day. I don't get it.

I really don't know.  It's not a holiday for me, so I really don't notice what other people do.  But we're all used to working on holidays.
