The FWD Board of Directors has decided to forgo the convention/contest portion of the October 15-18 barbershop cruise, as practices and rehearsals remain difficult. However, the barbershop-themed cruise remains on schedule as an opportunity to reconnect and mix with friends in harmony and sing on the open seas.
For those already booked, the full deposit refund deadline has been extended to March 13, 2021.
Nothing else has changed: Barbershop cruisers who booked in 2020 will still get $300 on-board credit per stateroom, a free category upgrade and other perks. More than 660 have booked rooms, but these perks will not be available to those who cancel and try to rebook later.
This remains a unique barbershop opportunity, but the choice is yours. We hope you will still want to share the barbershop experience when we have had so few, but we need to know how many we should count on as we plan for entertainment and group events on board.
Donnna will be contacting those who are already booked to find out their intentions. Please provide Donna with your response by Saturday, February 27.
