Cool Cruiser

Cool Cruiser (2/15)

  1. My theory is pools are kept on the cool side in order to control the number of people using the pools. This is not just for princess ships but for all cruise lines. Safe travels, - WYB
  2. Juice Bar Mar from the Sapphire Princess Jan/Feb 2024
  3. Does anyone know if the passengers have travel insurance, and if so what kind and any idea of what would be covered or not covered? While I've not yet experiencing missing the ship (knock on wood) I've seen it happen on a few occasions myself. On a recent voyage on the NCL Sun, I was in Montevideo, Uruguay and it was getting close to all aboard time (10 minutes before). I was traveling with my mother and the ship had my cell phone number. Ship's security went to my room to verify I was really not on the ship and my mom was in the cabin. Security also called me on my cell phone to find out where I was, (I was just outside the ship in the terminal using the wifi). I reboarded with a about 2 minutes to spare before the all aboard time but surprised that they actually called me before all aboard time. I was also not the last to board. Once I got back on board, security stopped by the cabin to inform her that I was back on board. I learned that they were there when I got back to the cabin. Safe travels, - WYB
  4. I’m currently sailing on the NCL Sun. Yes, bicycles now seem to be on the list of banned items with NCL. That’s unfortunate as I enjoyed them very much. ya know, large batteries as a description are vague and are in most mobility scooters which are left overnight in the hallways. strange how they added bicycles as (24) as if it’s also been policy and not to the end of the list. Been brining a bike since 2018 with no injuries or complaints. oh well, on to the next cruise line until something changes. - WYB
  5. The way to go would seem to create a new brokerage account or an additional brokerage account using your real name and then fake made up information. Get creative, use wacky info that is outdated or just made up, then transfer all the cruise lines stock (NCL, RCL, CCL) in to that account and then just link the newly created account. - WYB

  7. For an upcoming princess cruise I submitted by email my share holder information and about a day later I was requested to use the StockPerks app by a princess rep. I gave it a try and a few days later the credit showed up in my account. Granted for some that are technically challenged the 1st time may seem daunting but it's the future. Yes I'm also concerned that I linked my brokerage account to a company i never heard of and I found no press release about it, but it also seems that I have the ability to link and unlink my account as necessary. I'm keeping a daily eye on my account. Go with the flow until something goes wrong. - WYB
  8. I would contact your TA to cancel. TA are really the easiest and most efficient way to cancel a cruise. - WYB
  9. The purpose of this forum is to educate and share information. It was then answered by mscdivina2016 who actually understood the question. You still do not seem to understand but hopefully one day you will. safe travels, wyb
  10. Yes, I understand that you don’t get it. Anyone in a haven can bring anyone in to their haven cabin. I’m also NOT seeking a refund or to cancel the 2nd reservation, (not sure where you were getting that). it’s a bid upgrade to haven where the bid submitted is for 2 regardless if it for a single. A bid upgrade is always double My question is that would a 2nd person be allowed to eat with me in haven at no additional charge since the bid upgrade is always for 2. mscdivina2016 was able to answer my question already. The question was a bit beyond some people’s ability to comprehend but it’s related to the NCL MC upgrade BoA. wyb
  11. Agreed. Hence why I won’t be submitting a bid for a haven room (not even the 3 bedroom penthouse). just wondering if anyone had tried. I’ll stay as a single in the club balcony suite but submit a bid for the 2 bedroom (non haven) - WYB
  12. Yeah, that’s not what I mean at all. I’ve booked 2 cabins with 1 person in each cabin. I received an invitation for 1 of the cabins to bid for a haven cabin. If the bid for haven is successful it’s also for double the amount. So will the 2nd person I’m traveling with be able to use the haven services as I’ve paid for the 2nd person, during the bid? they of course would be able to use the haven cabin that I won. wyb
  13. So, if you originally booked 2 rooms each as a single cabin and you then were offer to bid to a haven cabin, if the bid was successful could you then both share the haven services although you originally booked as a single for both original cabins? The bid to upgrade is for 2 people but the cruise had no single supplement on the original booking. I’m thinking about placing a bid for the 3 bdr penthouse but if I win the bid I’ll pay double but I’d like to be able for another person to use the haven services. - WYB
  14. The medallions used by princess are the same size as an apple airtag. So I bought an apple "airtag dog collar" (silicone) from either amazon or ebay, and then attached that to my watch band. Safe Travels, - WYB
  15. So the Emerald Princess is currently (Aug 05th - 21st) on it's 16 day round trip Hawaiian Island with a scheduled stop on Mon, Aug 14th to Lahaina, Maui Island, which I don't think they will be making due to the fires currently burning in Lahaina, https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com Prayers for the all that are effected. Does the ship typically need to re-provision food and/or bunker fuel in Honolulu before returning to the mainland? I also wonder how weather and specifically the smoke from the fire will effect this voyage overall. I'm guessing that the ship instead of Lahaina, Maui may overnight somewhere or take a slower route towards Ensenada. Safe travels, - WYB
