Slackfumasta: Jesus, so much hate for two people who went on a cruise and didn't predict the worldwide pandemic that showed up.

Bottom line is the cruise company said they could get a refund for the entire trip plus a credit for that same amount on a future trip, but then never actually gave the refund back. You'd all be pissed at them too.

Get off your freakin high horses Farkers.

How do you decide when to use an apostrophe?

I've used this comment before - "Play stupid games, win stupid prizes", although this time it seems more appropriate to paraphrase as "Pay for stupid items, wait for delayed refunds".

Yeah, doesn't flow - feel free to fix.

Hayden opted for the former option. She and Herninko say they were also owed for air tickets back home, excess baggage fees, money for prepaid land excursions that never happened and port taxes and fees.

Why would she expect the cruise line to reimburse her for excess baggage fees? Travel lighter. Maybe have the dude leave his matching Pac Man tie and blazer at home next time.

Not everyone taking an expensive trip is a billionaire my grandparents went on a super duper luxury cruise it was their one big trip of a lifetime and took them years to save up for it. In fact I think it might have been the only trip they ever took that wasn't within a two hour drive of home.


My Godfather never had children and after he retired his wife and him decided to take a world cruise. My aunt became ill and she made him promise to take the cruise after she passed.
The cruise left NY and my godfather had a nervous breakdown and was sent to a sanitarium and when my dad heard about it he sent for him to come stay with us.
He got my bed which had a canopy and when he stayed with us our huge cat " Cinders " was messing around in the attic and fell through the Sheetrock and the canopy and landed on his chest. He shrieked and didn't have a heart attack and slowly recovered.
I would never take a cruise again.

As someone who is currently suffering the symptoms of possible(results not back yet) infection.  Fark you Karen.  You're worried about a refund while I'm getting winded walking to the kitchen.  Fark you again Karen.  Be glad you can take a vacation.  I'm "essential" (read "sacrificial"). I make sure your dumb farking self gets all your "essential" movies and games so you can not be farking bored.  Fark you Karen!

I dont want to be on this planet anymore: She had the option for over $100k in cruise line bucks and declined. That's probably enough for a cruise all the way to the moon and back! Sure, she might not ever get to redeem it but still how cool would a framed voucher for $100k of worthless cruise bucks on your wall be? Quite the conversation starter, let me tell you.


Years back, there was a bank error in my favor.  I went to an ATM to get something like $20 out of it.  The receipt showed I had $999,999.00 available balance.  I got another $20 out, the next receipt showed $999,970.00 available.  So, I sat on it and did nothing.  It was fixed within 48 hours to what my proper balance would've been.

I laminated that first ATM receipt and a $1 bill, framed them, and had it hanging on my wall for a number of years.  I think I would've also framed $100k of worthless cruise bux, too.

Why would someone wear that?  I mean, you can't say you were wearing it ironically, because fark, look at it.

I hope you are ok, it seems you are very stressed. (or pissed) Always remember you have a FARK family to help you.

I'm just pissed at dealing with the Covidiots every day.  I live in WV and they are everywhere.  I (hopefully) will be fine. But this sucks.  I've never been this sick in my life.


I hear you, my dad can't breathe normally (Vietnam, agent Orange) then idiots don't wear a mask and condemn him to die.

I've paid for a chartered music festival cruise that was/is supposed to sail in late January 2021. If it doesn't (and I don't think it will), it's already paid for when rescheduled. If it all goes bankrupt and I don't get refunded, oh well. Sometimes life sucks.

That said, wear the damn masks!

Tough. You got a lot more cruise vacation than you paid for. I hope they do go into bankruptcy and keep your money.
