  1. When doing the tour on the Regal we also got really cute aprons as well as the other things. Definitely a worthwhile tour. It’s amazing to see what goes on to make these “cities on the sea” work so beautifully.
  2. My husband is not able to go on our cruise on the Crown Princess on Oct 8th. I had also booked EZair for us. Since the cruise is only a bit over a week out do I cancel the flight directly with Delta or Princess? On the Princess site the penalty appears to be the total flight charge. So. (Okay, admittedly this sounds stupid), is that an additional charge or just the monetary loss of the ticket cost? I also need to let Princess know I'll be sailing solo. (His idea. I lost a parent, a sibling and my job of 25 years to a sell out, oh and we moved - please no judgement on that..I'd love to have hi
  3. Hi. I booked a 10 day Panama Canal cruise when the Sip and Sale was offered for 2021. Personally I love having a. cruise booked out a bit, (even better when you have another one coming up before that). It gives you something extra wonderful to think about when you need a bit of a lift. If you find an itinerary that you really want. with a time you can be available I say go for it. (And I have). Bottom line, you do you.
  4. Thank you very much. Haven’t done a transfer since I started cruising 25 or so years ago. Think I’m going to stick to that tradition. I appreciate your thoughts. 😊
  5. My flight is nonstop Detroit to Fort Lauderdale same day as the cruise departs. Boarding is delayed until 2 due to Coast Guard inspection/drills ect, per Princess email. Sail away is at 5. ggprincess2004 thanks so much!
  6. Hello there! Since you have been generous with your cruise insights and information I was hoping to ask your help once again. I am cruising October 8th on Crown Princess. My flight arrives at 10:11 and boarding is delayed until 2. Normally I prefer Lyft or Uber to get vacation started easily and early, but in this case not an option. Would Princess transfers make sense in this situation? The website really doesn't specify what is included. Is it just a ride? Do they deal with your luggage or do you keep it in your care once you've claimed it from the carousel? Multipl
  7. I appreciate all your helpful replies. Driving to Newark, cruising and then flying home from Fort Lauderdale sounds like a great idea. Most of you are so supportive and I truly appreciate that. Sverigecruiser. Well, two things come to mind that make taking that extra day one that deserves some contemplation. First of all, I’m a nurse and staffing safely requires that I can’t (none of us can) take time where there won’t be adequate coverage, and secondly, I used up the majority of my vacation time while I was nursing my mother before she passed away. Still, I would like to enjoy my time of
  8. Hi. As far as the driving goes, I had looked up a one-way rental from Detroit Metro to LGA. So no parking fees or worrying about getting my car, but then we’d need a place to stay for the night. I only bought transfers from the airport to ship one other time and hated it (although I did get them for this trip because I have absolutely no idea where anything is), I guess partly because they consider embarkation day the first day, and well, I want my first day to last as long as possible. Plus I get motion sick and buses are the worst..except for the occasional rough tender. I guess
  9. Hi there! So I, like many others am doing the 10/31 10 day Regal Princess cruise leaving from New York. I booked EZAir. It was a good price and I thought I had everything taken care of. Initially the flight was supposed to be in early morning on the 31st. (Yeah, I know...go in a day early which I normally do, but work and finances make that a little dicey this time). There have been three time changes so far with the most recent arrival time being around 10:30. Now, 1030 is fine, but I had figured that if there was a delay I had a decent 6ish hour window without being stressed
