  1. I have been trying to learn how many points are needed for different amounts of shipboard credits. I thank anyone who can help me to learn this info.
  2. Was on ten day Mexican cruise which was just before the Hawaiian segment. Quite a few passengers stayed on for Hawaii and got COVID. I heard two passengers on my leg had it. yes, we are cruising again but in 2022 and we are fully vaccinated right now.
  3. Just wondering where I can find a deck plan for emerald deck to see where the lifeboats are. Much appreciated. Thanks
  4. We have done several European cruises as well as several transatlantic cruises. Always used EZAir. One advantage in the past was after booking and reserving our flights (not paid for yet) we found as the final payment got closer, EZ Air offered incredible discounts. We flew to Copenhagen once round trip for $184. each. Can't beat that. There were other times as well. Plus the fact that it doesn't cost anything if you do have to change flights or cancel.
  5. like you we never took out additional insurance until we aged a bit. We always take Princess insurance but it does not provide cancel for any reason. We booked a cruise awhile back and prior to leaving my husband had to go on a business trip and couldn't take the cruise, he tried to cancel and put in for the insurance and they said that was not covered. So be careful as to why you need to cancel. Good news I still went on the cruise and I took a girlfriend.
  6. we were given a bottle of dom perignon for a special anniversary many years ago. We kept it in the refrigerator for about 7 years. Then read that you shouldn't keep champagne in fridge. So for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday that year, we opened it with friends. To our happy surprise, it was excellent. I can only say, it is all a hit and miss.
  7. use to go canoeing down the Russian River and always drove over to Jordan Winery. You sir have excellent taste in wine.
  8. Interesting. our european cruise for august was cancelled. I went in to ez air and cancelled the reservation because I knew the plane was almost full and felt if people could use the seats, so be it. Now when I go to Princess it is still listed as an upcoming cruise, but does not show any air reservations. I also did the same for the excursions and they are not showing either.
  9. I had my Aug. transatlantic cancelled weeks ago. It still showed up with EZ Air, excursions, etc. I was a bit paranoid about it so I went back online to the booking and removed my flights (mainly so that people who wanted to travel could have the seats) and while there removed my excursions. After reading your experience, I am sort of glad I did it.
  10. My cruise for August has been cancelled. We received an email from Princess stating we would get double FCC. My question tho is that I had paid cash for excursions. Will I receive that money back. Otherwise, the only thing laid out was my fcc for the trip. Just curious.
  11. Your passport must have at least six months left before it expires to be used to travel. That said, my friend sent in her passport for renewal three months ago and still has received nothing back. So I recommend you renew your passport sooner rather than later. And yes everyone here is absolutely correct that you don't need to provide that info until the last minute. Have a great trip next year.
  12. we were avid HAL travellers until shortly after Carnival took them over. In the ensuing years friends who travelled on HAL were not that thrilled with it. All that said, recently had friends on the Zandam ship that had all the corona virus problems. They were healthy and so HAL transferred them from an oceanview cabin to a balcony mini suite at 0 cost. Even tho they saved a fortune, they most of all credited with the way they were treated with the crew of HAL. They loved it. My husband and I are now considering another HAL cruise. On a very personal note
  13. Aah memoak,I remember cruising in my youth without taking insurance. Now that the years have passed, we purchase insurance on our cruises - approx. 3 per year. why you ask. Twice I caught the flu on two different ships and got completely reimbursed. And yes I had the flu shot. next, friends were with their 2 kids and wife had an accident in Europe and needed surgeries. Flight home for four people last min. Without insurance was 8000. so we look at insurance as something to depend on when things happen i do wish you continued health
