  1. Very specific question for those familiar with options in SF, where can we get free rapid tests near the pier? We are flying in 3 days prior and will need to be tested on Sunday or Monday, staying in Fisherman's Wharf area with no car. We have never been tested so the whole process is new to us.
  2. Yes, when I have checked there are no ships scheduled in any Hawaiian ports until January. I think Princess may be stringing us along or just overly optimistic.
  3. That was announced a few weeks ago. Princess has continued to move forward with plans for Nov/Dec sailings so I don't know that they are making any other decision. I can see that there is a difference flying in and spending more days in Hawaii for POA passengers as opposed to four stops with Princess. As always, we wait and see.
  4. Yes, all of the protocols were extended through December 31. Waiting to see if Hawaii implements more restrictions or shutdowns of beaches/restaurants.
  5. Trying to choose an excursion in Kauai and considering one of these, or wondering if they are both worth seeing at twice the price? The canyon tour is a lot of time on the bus and just wondering if others think it is worth it?
  6. Ordered mine July 4 and got the email right away. Have you checked your spam folder? And yes the expiration of the bonus is 5/1/22.
  7. Thanks for posting, I was thinking that they were going to need to do this. I have all of mine applied to a Hawaii cruise this December but good to know in case that doesn't work out - I might want to do Alaska in summer 2022 instead.
  8. We have a cruise booked for December, and if we are allowed to go at all I fully expect to be limited to ship or bubble tours.
  9. Pretty sure it will still be May 1, that is what is happening to mine for our cancelled April 2021 cruise. We are planning to use it in December so that works for us, unless that one gets cancelled as well. At some point they may need to extend those since most everyone's expires then, depending on future postponements.
  10. I have been wondering this for awhile. With the extension of the restrictions, I would think they would have to. I am hoping they move it to 12/31/22; not based on anything I know, just hoping.
  11. That is great information, thanks. Mine is an insulated carry-on size roller bag that we have used on cruises before to fill with drinks and ice. This will be our first Princess cruise so I wasn't sure.
  12. Would they allow a rolling cooler full of individual bottles of water and soda, or only sealed cases?
  13. It looks like a lot refunds are coming through this week - got mine yesterday for our April 30 cruise which was canceled when they announced the pause.
  14. People with sail dates back to March have not received refunds - it appears that they have not processed any at all since they announced the pause. I believe that there is another reason that refunds have not been processed.
  15. I was going to wait for Princess to issue the refund. But saying that refunds will be issued in order of cruise date, and ours was end of April, and NO ONE has received their refund, I went ahead and disputed the CC charges. If there was some progress indicated on these threads about seeing refunds coming through at least for the last half of March, I would have waited. But from what I have read the only refunds have been for specific cruises cancelled just before they announced the pause, they apparently haven't even started on the rest of the refunds which has caused a lot of mistrust.
  16. I had a deposit on a cruise that I called and changed to a longer cruise that required a larger deposit. They agreed to give me another 30 days for the additional deposit due to my pending FCC. A few days later I went to look at my reservation and it looks like it was cancelled anyway because I did not pay the additional deposit. Now I'm wondering how long it will take to receive the original deposit back; not feeling like spending time on hold to try to get that worked out again. Thinking about just bagging the whole thing and ask for all my money back at this point. I feel that I am just trying to manipulate the future by thinking that if I have a cruise booked in the fall I will actually be able to go.
  17. We chose #2. We don't cruise that often and this was our first cruise booked on Princess. We will probably book again but possibly not before the expiration date of the credit.
  18. We will be taking Princess transfers from LAX to the ship. Is there a place within walking distance that we could go to pick up wine and soda before we board? I see "Ocean Liquor Market" on Google maps that might be a possibility?
  19. Can anyone tell me if the Emerald has an escape room experience?
  20. As we have not seen that for quite a long time, and will be on our first Princess cruise in May, this might be fun for a few episodes. Can anyone tell me if Emerald has on demand?
  21. Thank you for posting and answering this. I had not even considered this as an option. We were going to take Lyft to save a few bucks but this sounds way more convenient.
  22. This is very helpful information, thank you! We will be on the Emerald at the end of April into May celebrating our anniversary and so we can plan accordingly.
  23. Very enjoyable review. Our upcoming cruise to Hawaii will be our first on Princess, also planning to bring a few novels and not do much else except for some easy tours in Hawaii. We usually do active port-intensive Caribbean cruises and this will be our first cruise with more than 2 sea days. We have Anytime Dining but will be on the lookout.
