  1. Are both canceled cruises in the past? My points (and all other reports I've seen) were posted when they would have if the cruise hadn't been canceled - within a couple days after the scheduled debarkation date. If one of your canceled cruises is still in the future, you may have to wait until after the scheduled debarkation date to see the points (but obviously, there's no guarantee of that). I did also see a rumor (just a rumor - I have no direct knowledge of this), that only cruises that you accept FCC will get points - you won't get them if you request a refund (although I honestly have no idea how they would make that work, since they're issuing FCC automatically to people....). I've had points for my canceled cruise for 2 months now, but I'm still not counting on them - I'm still concerned NCL will take them back.
  2. Specialty Dining Packages are per-person - I feel like you may be confusing it with Platinum dinner benefits. For SDP, each person has their own, and can choose when (and when not) to use a credit/night from their package. I don't have to use one of *my* credits, just because my dinner companion uses one of theirs, when it's SDP - since those are individual. It's only the Platinum dinners that are tied together with a companion.
  3. We were also told No for a dining package for the 3rd person. Each of the 3 of us had FCC (but not from the same cancelled cruise), but our PCC was able to move FCC around/apply it to someone else's costs, so that we were able to split the total cost 3 ways (so each of us paid an equal amount). By cruising 3 to a room for one of our cruises, we were able to book 2 cruises in place of the one we had previously booked (with the 20% discount and the 25% bonus FCC). After base fare, taxes, gratuities, etc were paid, one of us had FCC left, and asked if she could use FCC to purchase a dining package for the 3rd person (to "match" the free-at-see dining package for guest 1&2), but was told no - that had to be purchased with cash. NCL's suspended sailings FAQ specifically states that they cannot be purchased with FCC, so that seems to be the correct answer. I haven't see anyone post that they were actually able to do so, just that they were told they could (and those were way at the beginning of all of this, so they were probably given incorrect information). From https://www.ncl.com/suspended-sailings Is there anything the FCC cannot be used for? The FCC cannot be applied or used for the following: Amenities Dining/beverage packages that are not part of the Free At Sea program Internet packages that are not part of the Free At Sea program Shore excursions booked while onboard Onboard credit Water/soda packages Bottles of wine Bon voyage gifts and celebration packages Photo packages
  4. I believe the $50 credit is now available when you book online (this just started in Febuary-ish, I think) - so you wouldn't end up with additional OBC once you board, and you wouldn't have to pay that $50 when you book. When I look at available excursions for an upcoming cruise (in 2021), each one shows a message that says "Shore Excursion Credit Will Be Applied." However, booking ahead in this way would most likely prevent you from using OBC from other sources (IE: shareholder OBC) to cover any remaining cost of excursions (although I don't really know that for sure).
  5. For our April 2020 (cancelled) cruise, we were able to call the excursion group and pre-book/reserve our excursions, without paying (to be paid on-board). However, this was only allowed because we had the $50/port excursion credit. From my understanding, that discount is now available when booking excursions online (it wasn't when we booked our excursions), so the rules may have changed. And since our cruise was cancelled, I can't say for sure whether we would have been able to use other non-refundable OBC (shareholder OBC and other) to pay the balance, but that's what we were planning on.
  6. Yeah, that's definitely something I routinely fail at doing: checking where another poster is posting from. I freely admit I have a very US-centric worldview as far as CC is concerned, and it's good to be reminded that there are CC users from everywhere. I'll try to do better in the future!! 🙂
  7. OP - From https://www.ncl.com/suspended-sailings in the FAQ section: What can the FCC be used for? Any bonus FCC amount is applied only to the voyage fare. The original, full value FCC can be applied and used for the following: Voyage Fare NCFs Government Fees and Taxes Pre-paid service charges Beverage or dining gratuities (if part of the Free At Sea promotion selection) Air purchased through Norwegian Cruise Line Hotel purchased through Norwegian Cruise Line Cruise tours purchased through Norwegian Cruise Line Pre-booked and pre-paid shore excursions Transfers Essentials, Booksafe Standard or Platinum Travel Protection insurance (if purchased on the original suspended reservation) Is there anything the FCC cannot be used for?

  8. I feel like you may have been given some incorrect information (or maybe I just misunderstood you). I was able to use my FCC toward two different cruises (one previously booked, one a new booking). My mom had 2 cruises cancelled, and was able to use those FCCs spread among 3 rebooked cruises. So you can definitely split FCC between different cruises.
  9. We are booked on the Sky in April 2021, with a stop in Grand Turk.
  10. Definitely call them and try! Like I said, I haven't seen anything in writing. And I only had the one cruise booked - I think our PCC may have actually cancelled and rebooked us (because we were also able to take advantage of the 20% off). So that may have been why we were able to do it?
  11. Each person on the reservation gets their own FCC. Your total of $6866 is exactly twice the $3433. So check with your travel companion - they most likely also have an FCC for $3433.
  12. Yes, at least sometimes. We had booked a cruise for April 2021 in early March (before the cancellations started). We were able to use FCC from our cancelled cruise for our already booked April 2021. However, I've seen reports that you can't use FCC on cruises booked a long time ago - the reports I've seen say cruises booked since March. I've not seen anything official on that from NCL, though.
  13. That was not what I received - but maybe it has changed since the first round of cancellations (My cruise was scheduled to embark April 8. I received 100% FCC of what I had paid, which included base fare, taxes/fees, prepaid service charge, and free-at-sea gratuities. Then I received a "bonus" FCC equal to 25% of that inclusive amount. I had not prepaid any excursions, so I don't have personal experience with how those were handled, but I did see reports that if you had prepaid excursions, they were handled the same way (100% + 25% bonus). Between the 25% bonus, and the 20% discount, I was able to book 2 cruises for the price I had paid for one.
  14. I'm not quite sure what you're asking - the 25% bonus gets applied first (to base fare). then the 100% FCC gets applied - any left over FCC can be applied to another cruise, or (as stated in the FAQ) used to prepay for excursions and such. Does that answer your question?
  15. Unless things have changed since the first round of cancellations (my cancelled cruise was April 8), you should get 125% of your base fare, port taxes/fees, prepaid service charges, and gratuities on free-at-sea perks. I've seen reports of getting the bonus on prepaid excursions, but I didn't have any of those, so I don't have personal experience with that. As far as what the FCC can be used for, this is straight from the FAQs on the suspended sailings page at ncl.com (https://www.ncl.com/suspended-sailings😞 What can the FCC be used for?
