    Yes.  Just tell them “likeadisguise” on Cruise Critic says it’s fine and they’ll let you board.  [emoji849]
    You're right, they probably put it on their website as a joke!

    U.S. citizens on U.S. roundtrip or "closed-loop" cruises: U.S. citizens who board a cruise ship at a port within the United States, travel only within the Western Hemisphere, and return to the same U.S. port on the same ship may present a valid US passport, U.S. Passport Card, Enhanced Driver's License or Trusted Traveler Program Card such as Nexus, Sentri or Fast Cards.
    However, in the absence of any of the documentation listed above, U.S. citizens can present a government issued photo ID, along with proof of citizenship (an original or copy of his or her government issued birth certificate, a Consular report of Birth Abroad, or a Certificate of Naturalization). A passport is still the preferred document.

  2. The department at Princess that handles these isn't in over the weekend either, so getting someone to call again today probably won't have much effect.


    As long as your TA got in touch with you as soon as they received the upgrade notice and advised Princess you wanted to decline within 48 hours of the upgrade happening they should be able to get your cabin back.

  3. I just got off the phone with customer relations..


    I had asked if the "coffee card" part was on one spouses card, could the other take the card and get coffee....the answer....NO


    Actually the program (what she said) rolls out tomorrow across the fleet.


    I just mentioned that if one spouse had the "coffee card" on their "side" and the other wants a coffee, then, If the one with the coffee side, needed to stop what they were doing (pool, spa, lecture, theater, casino) and go get the coffee. I told her that it sounded inconvenient, she agreed and said "sorry"


    AND IF/WHEN you purchased the card, and designated who should get the card, and you change your mind, she said you would have to cancel the purchase and repurchase with the new person....(this is obviously before the 3 day window)....really? Then she said they "might" be able to transfer the coffee to the other person on board, but she wasn't sure....


    This sounds like a big hassle to me...maybe I will just give up paid coffee for the "free" stuff in the dining room


    Any Canadian cruisers out there that might want to bring a Tim Hortons....


    Did you really think Princess corporate was going to say that you could use someone else's Cruise Card for a transaction? I'm sure they know it happens on the ship -- husband and wife with unlimited drink package, one of them brings both cards to the bar and gets two drinks, for example -- but they're not going to officially tell you that's allowed.

  4. The point I was making is that, even with easier, princess was trying to deny us Transportation. I had to prove to them that I had the easier. I shouldn't have had to do that. And I shouldn't have lost two full days in Paris because of their incompetence.


    Except you were in a different situation than the rest of the people who booked their cruise to end in Le Havre:



    "In September 2017, we were granted a Route Sector DeviationApproval to disembark in Le Havre."

    When you're approved for a Route Sector Deviation, they tell you straight out on the confirmation that if for some reason you miss the port where you're schedued to leave, you're completely responsible for your own arrangements and Princess has no liability.

  5. Regardless of the fine print, that Princess thinks it is acceptable to disembark passengers in a different country with no obligation to get them to their destination seems immoral.

    I have just been reading the passage contract that Princess issues here in the UK and it seems to be different to the US. Princess are legally required to comply with the Package Tour Regulations 1992 which has provision for the obligations of the provider when a significant change occurs - even if that change is as a result of force majeure. In such circumstances, ‘the provider will provide equivalent transport back to the place of departure or to another place to which the passenger has agreed......

    Obviously, the passenger must be reasonable in their demands but to ask to be taken to the contracted port of disembarkation seems to me to be perfectly reasonable. As usual, what is reasonable is determined by the courts.



    You need to take that paragraph in full, though:


    38. After departure, Princess does not guarantee that the ship will call at every port on the itinerary or follow every part of the advertised route or schedule or that every part of the Package will be provided. Princess reserves the absolute right to decide whether or not to omit any such port(s) and/or to call at additional ports and/or to change the advertised route, schedule or Package. If Princess is unable to provide a significant proportion of the Package, it will make suitable alternative arrangements, at no extra cost to the Passenger, for the continuation of the Package. If the Passenger does not accept them, for good reasons, or, if it is impossible to make suitable alternative arrangements Princess will, where appropriate, provide the Passenger with transport back to the place of departure or to another place to which Princess and the Passenger have agreed. In both cases Princess will, where appropriate, compensate the Passenger. Please note that compensation will not be payable if an alteration is minor or if Princess is not able to provide a significant proportion of the Package due to force majeure.

    Since weather is considered a force majeure, Princess didn't have a legal obligation to compensate. Whether they had a MORAL obligation is a whole other question....
