    Carnival

    I was just thinking of all of the prep work that goes into Carnival.
    Sadly, no 2021 Carnival festivities including the Grand Parade.

    We were wondering about that, so sad.

    I know they were thinking about moving it to summer, but I don't know if they are doing that or not. Hopefully, Carnival 2022 will be a huge celebration not only celebrating Carnival but also celebrating a world that is Covid free.

    Just got my email this am while the news were saying that all Feb 2021 cruises canceled.
    Even Carnival reps do not know.. I called last night before my final payment. Rep told me NO they are sailing;
    if you want to cancel with no fees you may, but no OBC. I declined.
    Chose 100% refund with $600 OBC if booked by May 2021 and sail by 2023.
    Just check my shares in CLL and it has increase . $23.18 per share (pay half )

    They usually know after it has been announced on the news. I had the same issue with AA earlier this year. They announced no change fees and I called. The rep and the manager said, no it isn't for your dates. I said I saw it on the news. They told me to wait and see. Then I get an email the next day with the same info I saw on the news, so I called back and made the changes.

    Fortunately, we had our carnival this year. It ended just a few weeks before our first covid case. Unlike many other Caribbean nations who have theirs later in the calender year. So, we are thankful for that.

    I am totally opposed to changing carnival to the summer time. That period is already reserved for festivals and family vacations. Plus it's just copying other islands which for me is a no no without an actual valid reason. It's not broke, don't try to fix it.

    We too did a cruise in Feb; on the Horizon; poor Lou caught some resp. infection. (glad it was 2 weeks before it all became covid)
    Now we have to decide take the $100% cruise fair and $600 OBC and book a cruise by May 2021 and sail by 2023
    This affects so many people
