    No, but what would be a surprise would be that anyone was actually going on a cruise at all just now.

      However the new rules will impact crew who are on board cruise ships sitting just off Miami or wherever.

        I think these restrictions will be in place for sometime

                Hi Garf
                Quite right.
                Early May dates is just a ploy to keep hold of cash,,,,,they don't want to say Aug 1st,,,the cashrefunds would bankrupt them in a week
                I hear some cruise companies have moved to a 90 day payback timeframe on cancellation refunds.

                  I most certainly won't be taking an FCC for our cruise end of May.
                  It would only pay for one of us at the silly prices being asked by RCI for Anthem.

                    Is the 90 day timeline not similar to what ABTA is lobbying the government to adopt??

                      I thought ABTA were advocating FCC vouchers, if not used within 2 years then cash back.

                        I am awaiting excursions cash back from P&O and have been told it’s 60 days.

                        I managed to cancel one excursion via my cruise personaliser before I cancelled cruise, but it would not let me cancel the other three.

                        The one I managed to cancel was paid back to my Credit card within 2 weeks.

                          Don't know Delboy. All I do know is that unless the current legislation has been amended, if a cruise/holiday is cancelled, the customer is entitled to a refund within 14 days.

                          They want to amend the rules and deprive customers of their money for longer periods. If I was impacted and paid by cc, I would be contacting my cc company.

                          PS A FCC is useless if the operator becomes insolvent within 2 years!

                            I haven’t even looked at future cruises, but surely it would make more sense for cruiselines to offer sensible prices, if only to get people to accept the FCC. Wh aren’t they doing thst?

                              They can only offer a FCC over a refund if it is protected.

                              ABTA say protection has been extended for credit notes upto July 31st If the original booking had protection.
