We generally book our annual cruise for anniversary in May, but occasionally we’ll do April. Maybe ships will be sailing before we’re ready to book again. Lol!

So I stand corrected. Both my wife and I got emails from NCL officially telling us our cruise for Sept 8 was cancelled. They mentioned about FCC being issued for what was paid but then the surprise. They also stated that they were awarding us (the amount of 25% of the FCC we had used) as a bonus. So we now have 125% the amount of FCC that we had before we booked this.

Huzzah and thank you NCL

well well well...our countdown clock's off by 2 days,,,hehehe however, THEY cancelled you. if we cancel up to 48 hrs b4, we don't get that...but its a good plan...no need for us to rush to a decision..thanks for the update...unfortunately, we're learning the fine art of cancellation/postponement...

Well the EU voted to not allow US visitors during the current pandemic.

Can you blame them? rest if the world is clawing its way back (not counting the inscrutable ones who lie) except for us in the good ol USA.. we know better...don't need no stinking masks or social distancing, no sir!!!

Dream Cruise line has announced it will begin sailing July 26th from Taiwan.

The EU published their recommendations to restart cruising. Here's a link to their recommendations. Masks and social distancing are included (not surprised).

The thing probably deserves its own thread...Actually reading the "shortened version" is leading me to the conclusion that sadly, cruising will become so "unsocial" as to become not worth the $$ or the hassle. Besides, they're desperate to start the "income stream" again...altho I don't think EUROPE is going to welcome any Americans for quite awhile anyway.

There is no way I am vacationing in a mask. If it keeps up, we'll forego cruising and opt for inclusive resorts and/or expedition travel.

Masks will leave awful tan-lines
