Matt is about as official as it can be.

My goodness.  As if most people weren’t already confused enough with the FCC, now they include Cruise Planner items in it.  I wish they would just make a plan and stick to it. I guess it shows that th

Exactly. There’s really nowhere to go. 
 

This is maybe the 1st of many schedule push backs from RC. From a corporate standpoint it’s obvious they can’t just come out & cancel every cruise for the remainder of the year at once w/o setting off a mass sell off for every cruise booked out to 2021. The reality is that there’s not a chance they are back to a normal schedule in 2020.

I would think once the U.S. is good to go, they will start up again. Our cruise is from Cape Liberty and hits Port Canaveral, Nassau (might be an issue) and Coco Cay... maybe we'll have another sea day instead of Nassau... fingers crossed for 5/31!  😎

Well, this puts me in an awkward spot. I just lost my June 4 cruise on Adventure to Canada, but so far, my July 15 backup sailing is still on. Problem is, I won't get my FCC in time to apply at final payment (on April 17). I know the situation is fluid, but I wish they'd just done a blanket 60 days from the beginning -- and made the decision about Alaska and Canada when Canada announced their port closures.

Same here - had a pretty good deal. July cruises look like double the price of our May cruise... and would I get the 125% FCC in time for final payment in April for a July cruise?

Well We knew this was coming. We were on Oasis May 10th. Just were waiting for the cancel and credit. I believe they will start sailing mid May though. Question I have is for the cruise we want to go on instead a Central park balcony is a little over 100 less than ocean view balcony. Which one would you choose? Kinda like the novelty of a Central park balcony but what do you think.

Just got email with official cancel for May 15 Alaska cruise. Cash refund or 125% FCC that I should get by 4/30 and good until 12/31/2021. Guess it's time to start planning.

Can't imagine what the folks at MEI are going through.....

We have a May 24th sailing on Harmony.  My hope is hanging on by a thin thread.  If the port situation round The Caribbean is an issue for future sailings I would be happy to spend an extra day at Coco Cay and just hang on the ship for the rest of the days.  haha.....

We are May 31st, but I just don't know if it is going to happen.  Even if they lift travel bans/restrictions, cruises are going to be the last places they will want people to congregate on.  I just don't think C-19 will be eradicated enough for officials to take that risk.  Don't get me wrong, we are hoping with all hope that we still get to go, I just don't know logically if it will happen.

I would take ocean view all the time. I don’t like the idea of looking across into other balconies and vice versa. I love being able to look out over the ocean in the morning and also enjoy watching as we dock at port.

So I think this is different from the last round of cancellations. If you bought something in the cruise planner you can either have it refunded or apply for 125% OBC for a future sailing. I’m curious if this would be able to be used online ahead of time or if it’s only able to be used on board. Makes a huge difference.

We were on the May 10th Allure sailing out of Barcelona.

I'm so sad not to go on this trip this year.

I really appreciate RC making the decision until waiting the last minute.  

Prayers everyone stays healthy.

Prayers for anyone and their family who are dealing with this Virus.
