  1. Yes, those times are generally typical.
  2. Yes; thank you for seeing the heart of my curiosity.... that I am curious. I just think it's a bit curious - interesting to note - that it's been a Princess ship both times that have had actual outbreaks onboard, and that have had onboard quarantines, and testings. Why is this not happening on other ships? Or is this happening on other ships, but being handled differently? OR is it not being reported in the media? OR is it not being reported in the media that I read and/or listen to? If it is happening on other ships, in other locations, I would like to hear about it, too.
  3. Yes, you're right. Even I didn't realize that I was merging the two in the way I asked the original question. The heart of my question was more to do with the quarantine situation...... Are other ships - other cruise lines - being held in place (off shore, or in ports) because of outbreaks, and/or for testing results,, and/or for quarantine. Both the ships that have been held in quarantine and received the media attention were Princess. Some here say "just the luck of the draw". Too bad it's been Princess both times that has been so unlucky.
  4. So... it sounds like it is the media's focus. I wonder if the other ships some of you mention here are also hunkering down off the coasts of *wherever*, and are awaiting test results, and living in quarantine.
  5. I mentioned Westerdam in my original post.
  6. Why are only Princess cruises being caught in the "you can't dock here" situation? First the Diamond, now the Grand? Not Celebrity, not HAL, not RC... etc. Are there other ships in the same situation, but our news media aren't telling us? Or is it Princess's itineraries being different in some way? Or should my question be, "why are the Princess pax being identified as having C-virus and not the other cruise line pax"? I know about the Westerdarm, and maybe another one(?) in Feb, but now Princess is in this situation again. What is happening with Princess that is
  7. I clicked on this post because I couldn't resist seeing what would be posted under the subject title: "The Night the Ladies Went Out at Sea -- An Emerald Review" LOL! My misread! But so very fun!
  8. We were on the Sky Jan18-23. At that time you did need to have the "ocean compass" downloaded on your phone, not just the medallion class app. But, I've picked up hints from other postings here that possibly the capabilities of the [once] separate ocean compass app has been integrated into the medallion class app.....? Just a head's up.
  9. I agree with all that tillys mom says here. Just to add my thoughts to what she's said: on every cruise we carefully consider whether we will take the Princess excursions or hire privately. We prefer private tours, but the possibility of being on a private tour and being left behind if we miss departure time weighs heavily on us. In Panama we were on an excursion where our bus broke down and we were delayed some 6+ hours getting back to ship. It was a Princess excursion --- so they waited for us. Otherwise, they wouldn't have. In the UK we felt confidence in a) the c
  10. Yes. Cielo's. All the way aft. Sixth floor. And it's like on the Regal where you have to know the "secret passage" way to get to it (that's a joke, in case someone is bothered by my saying that).
  11. I have another question about Future Cruise Deposits to piggy-back on the OP's question: My husband and I each have two FCDs right now. So, altogether we have 4 on deposit. I am anticipating booking a Fall 2020 cruise for my two daughters and me. Just us 3 girls. I will be making the booking for all 3 of us. What does this mean for using the FCDs I have --- will I use mine for me, and I'll have to make separate, different amount, deposits for them??? Or can I use 3 of the 4 I have on deposit for the 3 of us, even though they were originally made for my husband?
  12. What reasons did your 4 friends give? As mentioned already, there is a promenade deck, on both starboard and port side, it just doesn't go all the way around the bow and stern. And there is some intrusion from the tenders and life rafts for a section. But, as was also pointed out, it has nice little open areas with lounge chairs. One thing I really like about the Sky is how it never feels crowded. I don't know how they do it, but as we'd walk around the shops and public areas, we'd feel the crush of the crowds more on the smaller ships, with less people, than on the
  13. I have an iphone 7, and ATT service (and I am a grandma). We recently were on the Princess Sky for a Caribbean cruise. The ATT daily international plan for $10 only popped up as an option when we were in port, not a thing when we were on the ship. On the ship we used wifi exclusively.
  14. When looking at the diagrams of the Sky Princess where the obstructed balconies are located, pay very close attention to the little tiny drawings of the actual boats hanging on the sides. There are two different kinds, that is reflected in the details of the teeny drawings. One kind is a more significant obstacle than the other. When I pick out an obstructed balcony I pick a room that looks out on the one that has the lower profile. ( I don't know the correct terms for these two different boats, but I think one kind are life rafts, and the other are tender boats. Whatever - there are two diff
