My intent in starting this forum was to notify CC members so that they can make informed decisions going forward. I have no problem with companies changing their policies, but I do have a problem with "effective immediately" changes without grandfathering options and notifications to TAs and customers.. Recently, airlines have also changed their policies - Delta SkyClub and American/United loyalty programs- without sufficient advance notification.
In our situation, the TA was unable to resolve the transfer with Princess. However, after continued persistence with the Princess customer service representatives, they made an exception and allowed the transfer to our TA.
