    Another One Bites the Dust

    Another cruise bites the dust!

    Not that the news of the suspension of cruises by Oceania through November came as any big surprise. We’ve been waiting for the announcement to be made for a few weeks now.

    When we booked this cruise earlier this year, we knew it was a risky proposition. We knew that the chances of the sailing going ahead as planned was nil. But the low-cost — and O’s Traveler’s Assurance Program — made having a Caribbean getaway on the books worthwhile.

    O is offering a 125% FCC [future cruise credit] or 100% full refund back to the original form of payment. As we did with a previously canceled cruise, we’re going to take the FCC and apply it to a 2022 cruise reservation we’ve had on the books for a while now.

    This cancelation pretty much puts paid to any international travel this year. The COVID-19 pandemic has seemingly won the battle in 2020. 🤞🏻 2021 will be a much better year to travel internationally.

    In the meantime, we’ll continue traveling with the motor home this year to scratch our travel itch.
