May cruises cancelled today

L&S ended in February, but is available when RC cancels cruises.  

I think perhaps the public link is gone for anyone to use, but the option is there for agents/guests to call in and use.

I did indeed need to call in, very helpful RC agent, all sorted, now hoping the visit the Fjords next year. 1 slight issue, we'd booked a guarantee suite, which aren't an option next year so a quick call to his supervisor and the back office and all sorted. Very impressed with the RC team.

I still think we need 3 months from when the lines finally get CDC blessing to start test cruises until any revenue cruising starts. 

So IMO June cruises are still firmly in the crosshairs

RCL has said that it would take them 60 days from "approval" to sail.

What RCG is reffering to is when they apply for a COVID-19 Conditional Sailing Certificate, there are materials that need to be submitted at least 60 calendar days prior to the date on which the cruise ship operator proposes to commence restricted passenger operations.

I assume our 9 night July 2021 cruise will be canceled. I looked around but still not sure. This all has become so confusing. What are our options? RC never emails to let us know they canceled one or how much FCC we have unless I call. 

We had a March 2021 cruise paid with cash and FCC. Called in December to move to July. Guess no shot of cash refund?

I, too, have a July cruise. Western Med. Doubt it will sail and want to get $$ back so waiting for official cancellation.....

They also said they'd respond quickly to any requests to begin test cruises, too.

I have a Southampton sailing on 20th June. I’m very doubtful it will happen, for one the uk is not out of restrictions until June 21st, secondly the itinerary is France (they hate us at the moment) Italy (just gone into lockdown again) and Portugal (red listed country and 10 day hotel quarantine required on arrival back to the uk. 

I sort of hope it cancelled soon, because we don’t want to have to have to buy a plane ticket to Southampton (which is very expensive at the moment) that we will not be able to get a refund on.

Well 17th May will be the domestic cruises allowed,  I understand 21st June will be international cruises from UK (at the earliest)...

It will then be a question on what size ships can fit into UK ports (whether Scotland & Wales, n.ireland join in), and later on it'll be what international ports would be opened to travellers from UK ports (I'm expecting vaccinated passengers at this point)...

I'm expecting confirmation on 12th April (grant schapps mp doing travel review for road map out of lockdown; and Michael gove update on way forward on vaccine passports)...

I'd sit back and see if RCL cancels on you ( lift & shift or 125% fcc)... if not you can always then cancel 48hrs before sail date and get 100% fcc.

Think you're right, especially if they have to add crew vaccinations with wait times.   I don't know the cost difference between the different vaccines, but would guess they'll have to weigh that along with the availability in the region they're going to perform vaccinations. (1 dose versions vs 2 dose  versions)
