  1. That is so hard to believe, I thought they may have done us a favour and ABTA would step up...1974, pre ABTA days, Courtline Holiday Company went bust, it was 2 years before I got something like £45 quid back!!! I can’t even remember if that was a full refund!! Now all in all I only want £6583k...
  2. Well thanks folks, I don’t read so much Cruise critic these days, but just happened to look...We were put off a “Northern Lights” Cruise 13th March, but they offered a good discount, so we booked another for the same destination for October 2021, Deposit £400!! Only 3 days ago I emailed CMV because when I booked for October 2021 the girl said We would have our cancelled cruise money of over £2k back by the end of July...now I know why we haven’t. My email to CMV Only 2 days ago, I also copied in a TA, they say 14 days for a response...I never chased this one so much because of the Rebooking Discount they offered! Little did I know they would have been the ones to benefit from us!!! 2 credit card company’s are supposed to be working on getting back our money, one from Iceland tours. Another from RC cruise, £4K in May. I already hold FCC for RC, Last time I tried to use it, they declined, so they are not worth having!!! I don’t think I’ll ever cruise again😢 I just knew holidays/life was changing that day we got ejected from the ship in Poole Harbour. So I began planning, buying our own holiday home, and now visit it regularly on the Jurassic Coast, Dorset. No fear of who’s got what...Best. Rgds & Good luck to us all, Mary
  3. Mininiemix, They all the same...not enough funds to refund...That already being your second attempt to see The Norther Lights, perhaps you have given up. it was a bit of a farce, delay after delay, even the drill on the second morning, just filling in time...we stayed the 2 nights and had the 2 night package F.O.C. In a sense, as they have more of our money than we got allegedly free!! We also lost a Royal Carribbean cruise via Barcelona/Venice/Italy etc.. no refund there either! Though to be fair to C&M they have offered us 50% off another cruise, a much better offer than RC, so after looking at C&M future availability, I’ve found one to Northern Lights, October ‘21 from Portsmouth, getting a quote...Hope you find a satisfactory resolution...Rgds Mary
  4. I had seen this cruise advertised...Iceland overnight was the draw, then at xmas somebody I knew booked it, they had been on that ship before and were happy to book inside, in the knowledge/hope an upgrade to outside was likely. But, us first timers, with this company feared we might be placed in a black hole somewhere..., so booked an outside! Also feared the waters, having 2 unpleasant (many good too!) Bay of Biscay sailings, but fingers crossed, we have missed the worse of the Irish Sea etc, for now!! Our cabIn is deck 4, friends deck 3. One at the front, one at back. Cruise & Maritime (we are “loyalty” on Royal Caribbean) have an odd approach, as I only saw inside or outside guaranteed, but no choices anywhere of a particular cabin number, in fact I don’t think we had access to Deck Plans until paid up!! I am packing shirts/jumpers too, but hoping at dinner we can get away with just sleeves... It’s only going to be a few really cold days...We are doing the Golden Circle Then in the evening booked a trip to search for the lights in the country somewhere, the company say if weather is bad they will cancel and we get a refund. The good thing is pick up is at the port. The other people have been to Iceland before and have other plans, Other ports we might take/share a “Taxi Tour”... Anyway looking forward to “Sail-away” and “Cocktails” on the 12th in Sunny Poole!! See you there & Happy Sailings to ALL...
  5. Looks pretty decent, “Premium Twin” mid ship and near the lifts. Did you book an outside? Looks like we are on the same cruise. We’ve never been with Cruise Maritime before either, usually Royal Carribbean ...we are on the deck below. Feeling a bit apprehensive about weather though!! That’s 12 March from Poole? Mary
