  1. It was my understanding that the 60 day refund clock started when Princess ceased operations on March 11th. I cancelled on Feb 28th, a cruise scheduled to depart on Apr 14th and I was refunded back to my credit card everything except the non-refundable penalty amount...which I filed a claim with AON insurance. Then Princess cancelled all cruises through mid May, so I filed for Princess Option 2 refund plan and AON closed my claim. The 60 day refund clock may begin on March 20th for me when I selected the Option Plan 2 or it could be March 11th when Princess ceased operations. To be honest, I'm not sure anymore? What are your thoughts? Good luck to everyone.
  2. Are you referring to the onboard Future Cruise Deposits (FCD)? If so, I cancelled all of my FCDs that I had in my Princess Personalizer account back on Mar 16, they have all been cancelled and are in for refund. However, the 60 day refund rule applies to FCD too...so, I'm still waiting to see the refund on my credit card.
  3. Credit card banks disputed credits are “conditional credits” and can be reversed if after their investigation they favor the side of the Vendor. So I wouldn’t spend the money...because it may be charged back to the cc holder. Good luck
  4. On March 17th, I cancelled all the Future Cruise Deposits “FCD” that were on file in my Princess Personalizer account. Since there is no ship or sail date, I wonder what refund order a FCD would fall into?
  5. On March 16, I cancelled and requested a refund for my Future Cruise Deposits that were held Active In my Princess Personalizer Account....to date no refund. Has anyone received a refund for cancelled Future Cruise Deposits? Thank you
  6. The Port of San Diego is closing to cruise ship passenger disembarkation on Apr. 1, 2020. Cruise ships may come into the port for supplies, but no one is permitted to disembark. Let’s not forget about our military too. There is a fleet of military ships that may need to come home to San Diego due to the Covid-19 too. Please pray for our military too. I pray for everyone on the Z & R for their safe return home, but the Captain made the right choice to go East through the Panama Canal.
  7. As a resident of SD County, I wanted to pass on to you that there is short supply in the grocery stores here. The stores are trying to keep up with stocking items on the shelves and many stores have opened their doors to Seniors in the early morning so they can shop without crowds....but, then there are crowds of Seniors too. Online orders seem to be out of stock. Costco is unbelievable...long lines to enter the store, then more lines to purchase paper goods...then more long lines to check out. Restaurants are offering take-out orders, No inside dining and bars, clubs are all closed and many San Diego residents are staying home as requested by our Governor. My hubby went out this morning to Stater Bros at 7:45 only to be greeted by 100 people waiting to get in the store...he turned around and came home. He went back to the store at 10:00 and no lines...shelves were skimpy, but they restocking shelves as he shopped. Take care and safe travels home.
  8. Those passengers on the Amsterdam that are unable to fly will transfer to the Pacific Princess to cruise to LosAngeles. Princess and HAL are sister companies. I think there is another sister cruise line in port, Seaborne that will also be transferring some of their passengers to the Pacific Princess too.
  9. I read on the Pacific Princess (World Cruise Jan20, 2020) CC blog that the ship will be sailing back to Los Angeles with selected passengers that are unable to fly home. The Pacific Princess and Amsterdam are both docked in Fremantle and there are selected passengers from the Amsterdam that will be joining the Pacific Princess cruise back to Los Angeles. Read the last page of that blog. Good luck.
  10. Do you think that Princes will deviate Itineraries that includes ports of call in China this year?
  11. We have a HAL beverage card, issued complimentary by HAL and we may not be able to use the entire value on our upcoming cruise. Is the balance on that card still available for use on a future HAL cruises? Thank you for your replies
  12. We are Elite (30+ cruises) with Princess and have only been on 1 HAL cruise, so I’m sorry but I couldn’t give you a fair comparison. We were on the Grand back around 2003 and we just disembarked her sister ship the Golden last month, of which we found the Golden is showing her age. Hopefully the Grand doesn’t have any many leaks as the Golden currently has... I found the hallway carpeting wet spots left an musty odor.
  13. What condition is the Grand in now? We’re booked on her for Oct 2020, LAX to Shanghai (30 nights). We just disembarked the Golden last month and she still has a lot of leaks...especial in the hallways. I heard the Golden will be going to PO at the end of next year.
  14. I thought I heard that the Credit Card companies do not permit the vendor surcharge to be passed on to the consumer. I’m not sure?
  15. Today, when I set up our onboard account using our Princess Personalizer, I received the following notice: If you are using a credit card to pay for your onboard charges, a surcharge fee of 1.1% will be applied. Debit cards do not incur a surcharge. Is this something new with Princess Cruises? We recently disembarked the Golden Princess and there was no credit card surcharge on our stateroom statement. Thank you for your replies.
