  1. I've checked a number of flights to and from China, Singapore, and Europe and they're all in the 42-43 day range. Can you provide just one example to substantiate your statement?
  2. That's not accurate! As I mentioned above, eZAir allows flights about 43 days before embarkation and after disembarkation. In the example below, eZAir allows a flight to Fort Lauderdale on January 17, 2021 for a cruise embarking on February 28...that's 42 days in advance.
  3. My personal policy is to never purchase insurance from the entity whose performance is to be insured. This includes partners of that entity. With Princess insurance you'll be insured during the timeframe of your cruise. If you purchase eZAir or pre or post tours, hotels, etc. through Princess, those will be covered also. Airfare, hotels, etc. booked on your own will not be covered by Princess insurance. I had a very enlightening phone conversation with Steve Dasseos of TripInsuranceStore.com a few weeks ago.

  4. Right now there is a limit of about 43 days pre and post cruise...
  5. We have stayed at a number of Fort Lauderdale area hotels over the years, but have settled on Hyatt Place Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port, 1851 SE 10th Avenue. The hotel is within walking distance of everything we might need...restaurants, shopping, etc. We usually fly in three or four days prior to embarkation and have always stayed free on points transferred from our Chase Sapphire Reserve account.
  6. For some reason known only to Google their Sheets app is no longer working well with the spreadsheet. I've found the free LibreOffice app for macOS works very well. I ran into a few macro issues, but nothing that really hinders its usefulness.
  7. The points @DrKoob and @rbslos18 have made well taken. I would also suggest not buying insurance from the entity whose performance you want to insure or an affiliated company...buy from a third-party insurer for a number of reasons...especially if you're planning time in a foreign country before or after a cruise. I had a very enlightening phone conversation with Steve Dasseos of TripInsuranceStore.com a week ago. He has conducted a number of question and answer sessions on the Cruise Critic Cruise/Travel Insurance Board that have been quite informative. In the past w

  9. No need to thank someone for being polite... To answer your question, RCL changed its name to Royal Caribbean Group this year. I believe it finalized in July.
  10. Your facts are not correct! Royal Caribbean Group (RCL) is the correct name of the holding company.

  13. Perfect! Thank you for letting us know...
  14. I suggest you call Princess for assistance in booking this one...
  15. We booked a Superior Double Room for a room facing the Pantheon. The hotel is on the Piazza della Rotonda...Piazza Navona is about a ten minutes walk to the west.
