  1. Well, as October draws gets closer we'll all have to listen to what information is next with ship capacity and how its going to play out with their different classes. RCI will have to come up with their plan on how to handle who's going to be allowed to sail and who will be offered some type of compensation . It's been an interesting topic reading what fellow cruisers have to say.
  2. Richard Fain for one, you can't get much higher than him and some of the other top echelon at their headquarters that can be seen from their YouTube video. My information came from "Coffee Talk" for those of us in the Cruise & Travel Agent business.
  3. I asked this question a few months ago when cruises got cancelled, up until now there's been no clear explanation on how RCI is going to handle passenger capacity. RCI hasn't addressed this yet, only to say a 40% ship capacity when cruising resumes. Case in point, ONLY as an example, lets say the Oasis got the ok to sail on December 1st and already has a full ship that booked a year and a half ago and others that booked afterward a year and a half. So what's going to happen to the rest of people that booked a year and a half ago or later? How will it be determined which people get to sail on that date? What will happen to those who are not inside the 40% group regardless as to when they booked? The option of a refund or FCC's ? This isn't the same topic for those who lost their cruise this year and who were given options. Thanks in advance to those who reply.
  4. I couldn't agree with you more firefly333. I hear that all the time that 4 questions will result in 4 totally different answers. But to be fair ive got feedback saying some large agencies do that too. Poor training, just get e'm out there to answer the phones.
  5. Or was it because of a so called "disagreement" with RCI and the Puerto Rico Government, thus changing the months that RCI would be sailing from San Juan? Something like this was mentioned in February and then died out from further discussions.
  6. I'd be very surprised if RCI is looking to eventually phase out TA's. (i'm one) . There are more TA's worldwide than Reservationists at all the RCI Call Centers. True, they'd save money on having to pay out commissions, but the clientele that we bring in outweigh the difference with varied benefits that many TA's still can give to their customers.
  7. Thanks for your posts, quite interesting.
  8. Share with us some of what you just scanned NavArch64, i'm sure we'd all like to get a better idea on what you found is ahead for RCCL.
  9. Would you be able to post how to find the Florida Departures Board etc. thanks.
  10. We haven't....yet. Is that what you'd recommend to located the motel (s) I just submitted those three words you mentioned and comes back with over 8,000 topics. Not what i'm looking to do.
  11. Looking for a one night pre-cruise stay at a comfortable motel in Ft. Lauderdale. Not looking for top of the line, and not the lowest either, a place with comfortable beds and decent amenities with either an one sight restaurant or some close by in walking distance for middle to senior age folks. Thanks in advance to those who reply.
  12. Both Mr. Bayley and Mr. Fain were worth the listen. What do you suppose they meant when they said ships will eventually have to start out sailing with half the passengers. MEANING? If Family A booked a year and a half ago and Family B booked a year ago and Family C booked 6 months ago, will Family A be the one to definitely get onboard, and possibly Family B but Family C doesn't have a snowball in hell of a chance to get accepted when Final Payment is due? I hope RCI and other Cruise Lines are working on such a plan to let people know just how this is all going to work out with how they plan to decide who will be able to continue to be on a particular sailing in the next few months and even longer.
  13. Absolutely ! SAS Transportation was THE best, economical and most reliable way. We used them as well.
  14. So, do you have any advice on my other questions I posted?
