No matter which way the companies make a refund you should look upon it as a bonus. At least they have been transparent and given something back. Of course I do not know how much it will be individually but surely there will be something to spend it on. Go on, treat yourself and have a good cruise. Richard.
If someone has paid the full amount then it seems most offer onboard credit which you can spend on wine/drinks/photos etc for those who have not yet paid in full their final invoice will be adjusted downwards so thay have the refund before they join the ship, this seems the general rule of thumb at the moment.
I'm with Richard on this one....."never look a gift horse" and all that. Just be grateful that you are not sailing with the tighter cruise lines who will try to avoid paying anything. ......Neil.
It's not going to be a huge amount that will make or break you.
Just be glad you're getting it back, at all.
You're going to spend a little something on board, no matter how your try not to
(I'm fairly good at it) -and it'll go toward paying your Cabin bill of under 200 Pounds
-but only if you're very lucky -LOL!
We are proud of the fact that we can get off cruise ships without having a penny on our on board account and we usually take about 8 cruises per year. I like to play cruise lines at their own game as they are obviously trying to make money by charging extortionate prices for shore excursions and moan put a service charge on their drinks. If you are a non drinker and have been to all the ports of call several times, there is no need to waste money - it can go to the next cruise.
That must be some record. I, and I guess many others, would be very interested in your reviews. Can you give us a clue to where they are please. Richard.
I find this an extraordinary statement which I don't dispute but I do remember Charles Dickens writing a whole book about one of your ancestors. .... Neil .
You must be really a fun person that never actually buys a drink for any new friend you might meet on ANY of the extraordinary number of cruises you take.
I am sure that you are first in the buffet Q as well.
Do you sell your Berlitz guides from this site on Ebay.
So you're saying you spend *Absolutely Nothing* ?? - not one single penny? on even little things in the onboard shops? Not even a postcard or two? No chocolates? Not even a Ginger Ale or a Coke? How about a T-shirt? Nothing? Nothing at all? And you're proud of it? Gee Whiz..I thought I was the last of the big time spenders, but you beat me soundly! No wonder cruise lines fail from time to time - it's all YOUR FAULT -- LOL!
