  1. FYI - I just noticed this on the main MSC page: CRUISE ASSURANCE PROGRAM CANCEL UP TO 48 HOURS BEFORE YOUR CRUISE, RECEIVE A FUTURE CRUISE CREDIT & RESCHEDULE YOUR CRUISE We want you to feel assured so we're allowing new and existing guests to cancel up to 48 hours prior to their cruise departure and reschedule for a future date. Effective March 10, 2020, Cruise Assurance is valid on sailings departing on or before July 31, 2020. If you choose to cancel and reschedule your cruise, a Future Cruise Credit will be given in the amount paid for your current cruise that is valid on any MSC cruise on or before December 31, 2021. If you choose to cancel and reschedule your cruise, you must call our contact center and advise them you wish to participate in the Cruise Assurance program at 866-337-4309. We ask for your patience as we manage call volumes.

  2. Thank you very much to all who replied, lots of useful info here. I hadn't seen the article and that pretty much sums it up. Looks like the only thing to do is leave the reliable CDB at home and go back to NSAIDS! Thanks again. 🙏
  3. I've recently begun using CBD oil capsules at night for sleep and pain relief and I'm wondering if anyone has info on whether CBD is prohibited on cruise ships or..? Hesitant to pack it for my upcoming cruise. Any info appreciated!
  4. Oh man, this is really excellent news! Thanks for posting. ☺️
  5. Thank you brillohead, that sounds like a very positive change! 😁
  6. Hello all - Our first cruise was on Divina back in 2014 or 15 - thanks to this message board, we learned ahead of time how terrible the pillows were (like a couple of newspapers in a pillowcase), so we picked up our own at Ross in Miami and were set for our cruise. We're sailing on Meraviglia on 3/29 and would like to know if MSC has improved their pillow game at all or if we should plan to stop at Ross again? Thanks in advance. 😁
  7. Thanks Biker19, that’s helpful!
  8. ☹️ That stinks! Back to Ship Mate, I guess. Thanks for your quick answer, soremekun! 😊
  9. Hello everyone - I see there's 26 pages in this thread...rather than read them all, I'll ask here: Is there a message/chat feature on the RCI app for use on Serenade? THANKS MUCH in advance!
  10. We normally rent a clamshell on HMC, this time I waited too long and now we're waitlisted...😞 I don't have high hopes that one will magically appear. We need a shady place to sit and keep our stuff, are we screwed? Suggestions welcome!
  11. I got an offer like this about a week after we got off the NA in December. I had spent a fair bit of time in the casino and won enough to almost clear our final bill (we only owed about $160.00 final bill). The offer was for certain sailings - interior rooms starting at $0, Oceanview from $99, Veranda from $299, Vista/Signature Suite from $499 and Neptune Suite from $799. We decided "What the hell!" and booked again for the end of March. I think the timing is really everything. We've received similar offers that we couldn't take for one reason or another, this one just came at the right time.
