  1. No need to answer if you do not want to but how did you get so much OBC per cruise?
  2. Regarding feeling comfortable booking a crusie I think there are 2 issues at play here. One is people are not sure of the pandemic health status of communities in Mexico. Second is that many people are still nervous about cruising in general at the moment. For example I wanted to go on a cruise to Mexico on the Ruby in late December but my partner felt that due to the pandemic situation it was much too soon to do so. On the other hand it was agreed that we could book a cruise on the Ruby to Alaska for next year as the pandemic situation should be improved by then. I know that is one anecdote but I have heard similar sentiments from various people.
  3. Fog City Diner across the street from the pier used to have great food. It seems it has changed so not sure what the food is like now.
  4. That seems statistically correct because as far as Princess is concerned the ship now has a maximum capacity of 1500 passengers.
  5. There are some testing sites that only ask for email address. For example the ones run by Color. See https://thepointsguy.com/guide/where-to-get-covid-test-travel/ I know it is a bit of a long read but the information is buried in there.
  6. I know people that would think nothing of drinking that much in a day and they deny having any problems.
  7. Cruises to Mexico out of San Francisco on the Grand Princess were at full capacity before the pandemic.
  8. In California there is no charge for testing and is available for any reason as the purpose is to help suppress the spread of the virus. See https://covid19.ca.gov/get-tested/ for information and to find a testing site. I need to read that in detail to see if transient passengers such as you are covered or have to pay. At that site there is a a GIS map of the testing locations and who provides them. The services they refer to perform PCR tests and have the results in 48 hours or less. It is easiest to use the search capability of the GIS map on a larger format device than a mobile phone. By the way I have posted a question at the web site I mentioned above regarding what is the policy regarding payment for Covid-19 tests by people in transit through California. It may take several days for a response to be posted.
  9. On the other hand the Grand Princess used to run at capacity when home ported in San Francisco.
  10. At $26 dollars a 375 ml bottle assuming you each consume one a day then the $40 per person for Princess Plus is the better deal as that includes the "crew incentive" and basically unlimited beverages.

  12. It is my understanding the Royal class does not have a promenade and that just will not do.
  13. It is in the current protocols. For details see https://www.princess.com/plan/cruise-with-confidence/cruise-health/frequently-asked-questions/us-cruises/
  14. Reserve it once on board. On embarkation day you may find a piece of paper on the bed in your state room with a reservation coupon.
  15. User Acceptance Testing and Usability Testing are two totality different concepts.
  16. Have you checked via the Princess reservation search tool to see if the connecting room has actually been booked or does the connectiing room have nothing to do with your attempt to change rooms?
  17. The ship construction plans are available. Most of the needed components could be fabricated in advance ashore. It would be about a week of work on board. You do realize they do all the work on different systems in parallel during dry dock.
  18. It is obvious that the team developing the Medallion app have very poor skills in UI design let allow an aptitude for programming. I suspect they did not storyboard the UI and its flow let alone perform user interface testing with naive subjects. In addition they seem to be clueless regarding the problem domain.
  19. The ships have huge holding tanks for waste water that is then passed through the onboard water treatment system and put into other holding tanks.
  20. Don't they strip search you and look in cavities if they find pods on you? /s
  21. I always use Biz along with detergent. The enzymes in Biz should be able to break down the coat of virus particles and destroy them along with the action of the detergent.
  22. SHARE is gone from all ships in the fleet. All mentions of SHARE have been removed from: https://www.princess.com/downloads/pdf/food-and-dining/dining-options.pdf
