  1. My wife and I are both teachers. Our schools have not made any policies like this for those that travel. Although everyone here is talking about two separate parents who took their kids to NYC and Las Vegas this weekend because "travel is cheap with this virus thing going on" 🙄 We're in rural Ohio 4+ hours away from the cases in Cleveland but I'm sure it will be here soon enough.
  2. Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. I'm fairly new to cruising myself and really just found the experience of being literally away from it all in the middle of the ocean to be relaxing. No stress once your on the ship since everything is there for you. Food, accommodations, entertainment, etc. all provided. But, sorry to hear about your ports, but if you got to Aruba and Curacao then those are the highlights of that itinerary. You can book a ton of different cruises to hit Jamaica and Ocean Cay. Don't give up just yet!
  3. Oh wow lol. Sounds like I'm going to have to work for this OBC.
  4. Thanks. I am currently trying this option. So far I have gotten a $100 OBC as the best offer. I guess it's better than nothing though.
  5. Thanks. I'm actually trying to now transfer the 2021 booking to a TA that promised me an OBC. I am sure that will be a real treat to try and pull off between the website and customer service
  6. Can someone cancel a booking they made online? I can't find that option for the life of me
  7. I think I found a nice lady that is starting to work with MSC and did offer an OBC. However as soon as she called them she was on hold for 30 minutes 😬 Also, quick side question, can I cancel a booking that I made on the MSC website without calling? Again, this is a booking I made not the TA
  8. I am the same way with not expecting anything from the TA. I'm almost terrified to give up daily control over my plans. I would only go with a TA for OBC or other perks. Best I have found so far is $100 OBC and a bottle of wine that I won't drink. I always have wished that they would just send up a 2 liter of Diet Coke instead lol
  9. I do fine with MSC. But, I thought I would do some comparison shopping. We are family of 4 with 1 teen and 1 child and doing the May 31 Armonia for $1100 for an inside with $100 OBC. I can't complain too much but I thought why not give it shot if they offer additional OBC?
  10. Apparently it is lol. Wish I knew what the "best cruise agency" was
  11. Does anyone know if you get MSC Voyager Club and/or Teacher discounts with a TA? I can't get any of them to quote me with my usual discounts. The OBC added without the discounts overall are not a better value thus far.
  12. The no shorts in the MDR was definitely enforced on our two sailings with MSC. In fact, I watched a really nicely dressed older guy in ironed golf khaki shorts and a matching polo get turned away but another guy with cheap jeans and a biker t shirt go into the MDR just fine.
  13. How did this change the itinerary? I would assume the sea days got moved since Cozumel is farther west than Jamaica
  14. BermudaBound2014, I know that you're not allowed to post TA names on here, but could you steer me in the right direction? All of my local TAs don't do MSC
  15. Pete, I have a question about 12015 on Divina. Will the view be impacted by the overhang of the front of deck 13? I believe this is the location of 12016 which is a mirror image of 12015? Other available half glass/half metal Bellas are 8259, 8254, 10036, 10037, 10250, 10267, 11026, 11258, and 11293 if any of those are better options.
