So what is the limit - it could be 10, 20, 50 100. There is no way to tell from what the TA sent you what the exact promo is - do TA's not even know although they are supposed to be able to offer the promo starting tomorrow ? Has anyone asked what the limit is ?? There was one mention of 12 earlier in this thread but that was on a different promo from a specific TA group.

Also note the language when it says whatever the T&C's on the Princess website are at the time of your sailing will apply - I take it to mean that you really do not know what you are getting when you take this offer. Every other time I have taken this promotion it has been unlimited

A cruise with a stop at Princess Cays I believe is the only time they need the sticker because they don't have readers. At least it was that way last April.

We really enjoy the AIBP and even better if the Sip n Sail works out as the best option.
Can you use your AIBP at Princess Cays?

Yes it is posted online but it doesn't start till tomorow. Person at Princess said the price of the cruises could also change.
I hope this works for us
Just added it to an existing booking. No increase in price. Only difference is now I have the complimentary package. I received a new booking confirmation and a special services confirmation with the AIBP on it. Quick and easy- two minutes on the phone.

Great. I have to wait for my travel agent to do it.
Thank you
If you prefer, you can call Princess and transfer it to your agent if you are worried about pricing.

Thank you so much for the "heads up". I called about a half hour ago and had Princess add the promotion to two of our future cruises. My pricing and confirmation number stayed the same. Doing a "happy dance" now.

That's what I was told also. However, since I had seen several people post that they had booked already, I called back and spoke with a different agent. I was able to rebook all of my future cruises to Sip and Sail, and they all kept the same price. If you don't like the answer from one Princess agent, hang up and call back. The next agent may have a different answer.

Yes.

The regular soda package does not apply at Princess Cays because that package is only for fountain soda and they only have canned soda at Princess Cays.

The AIBP will apply since it can be used for soda cans and for any other beverage that costs $10 or less.

Alaska cruises in May 2018 qualify.

Not so. The transatlantics in the spring seem to qualify.

Bummer! Looks like you've been everywhere though. I'm still working on that! Ours is an Alaska itinerary out of SF 9/2018. We don't have to fly anywhere so that will be kind of nice.
