It’s a very sad situation; two very sad situations actually: what’s happening in the world and the heartbreak of thousands of fans. Since it can very hard and painful to accept this, we may fail at reading all the information the New Kids shared; so, we’ll break it down.
In an official statement, the New Kids on The Block announced the postponement of the NKOTB Cruise 2020. Here are some FAQ you may have.
Why Did They Wait To Announce the Postponement?
Because they held their hope as long as they could, just like you.
NKOTB wrote, “Alongside all of you, we have been following information closely from public health officials and municipalities and working with Carnival to figure out a solution to protect the health and safety of the fans, NKOTB and all of our staff. We held out hope for this year’s cruise as long as we could.”
Why Has the Cruise Been Postponed?
Due to the current crisis and what it takes to plan an event like this.
NKOTB wrote, “We recognize the fact that many of you would not be able to attend due to the current state of international travel and other public health advisories. We take seriously the many safety concerns that most of you have.
We also understand that organizing this type of event requires extensive planning and logistics, not just for us, but for all of you who plan on attending (from around the country and the world) as well.
With that being said, we have determined that it is in the best interest of everyone for us to reschedule the New Kids on the Block Cruise due to the uncertainty and danger connected with the COVID19 virus.”
When is The Cruise Going to Set Sail?
It is uncertain.
NKOTB wrote, “We are committed to operating under the mantra of NO BLOCKHEAD LEFT BEHIND! If we cannot set sail with all of those who planned on attending now, then we will make every effort to set sail with all of those who planned to attend as soon as possible.
Due to the uncertain nature of the current health crisis, we do not have the reschedule date of sailing just yet and want to do our best to provide accurate information out of respect for each of you. We can, however, ensure you all that NKOTB, Faculty and Rose Tours, are all committed to giving our NKOTB passengers the absolute best NKOTB Cruise ever, with — NO BLOCKHEAD LEFT BEHIND.
When are They Going to Announce More News?
It is also uncertain.
NKOTB said, “We appreciate your patience and support while we make the necessary arrangements. We will reach out when more information on the dates becomes available. From all of us at Rose Tours and on behalf of NKOTB- We love you Blockheads! Be safe, stay healthy and we will reach out as soon as possible.
Expect further updates to come via notifications such as this.”
Can I Get a Refund?
Since the cruise hasn’t been cancelled – it has only been postponed – the terms and conditions you signed up for apply. Therefore: you cannot get a refund.
Will I Loose My Spot?
No. The cruise you payed for has been simply postponed; it will be rescheduled.
