  1. I used to pull off any laundry tags as soon as I found them after returning home, but since the hiatus of cruising, I have been leaving them in place as a reminder of past cruises. Even if the location may be a wee bit irritating, I like having my memory jogged. 😉
  2. I have done AK cruises on Princess ships 4 times in the past, 3 of which were in September. All 4 were everything I hoped they would be. AK for me is addicting because of it's beauty. The cruise we had booked for this September was cancelled, of course, so we have now booked a cruise-tour for 2021, in September. Last September, one of my daughters and I did a 10 day round trip out of SFO. The weather was cooperative, the temps were coolish, and no rain. The only time we needed warm jackets were during scenic cruising at Glacier Bay, and that was mostly because we spent a couple of
  3. Thanks for the replies. Knowing that Princess provides for GF options in the dining rooms and the buffet. I have to believe that there would be the similar options at the Princess lodges. When we get closer to our cruise, I will utilize the above link to check the menus.
  4. Thanks, the Brewhouse menu looks great. and a number of items are available GF. Now if someone can address the availability at the Princess lodges, we'll be good to go.
  5. We have a cruisetour in AK booked on the Star for next year. My adult daughter is gluten intolerant, and is concerned about the availability of gluten free foods during the land tour portion. Also at the hotel in Anchorage, the Captain Cook, if anyone has stayed and/or dined there. Hopefully someone here can help us with this.
  6. If they do, a lot of us would see it as age discrimination. Just because one is 70 or older, and happens to have a chronic health issue that is in good control , and does not have/ has not had any symptoms of flare-up of the issue, it should not preclude them from cruising, any more than it did before Covid-19.
  7. Whether they made your list or not, I would not hesitate to book and sail on ANY of the ships in the Princess fleet. I already have done 49 cruises on Princess ships, and intend to continue sailing with Princess as many more times as I can.
  8. I'm guessing this might be the result of the port pf SFO apparently being closed to cruise ships for who knows how long. We're booked on the August 31 sailing out of SFO on the Star. I imagine we'll get cancellation notice one of these days.
  9. Scopolamine can cause disorientation and confusion as a side effect.
  10. We have not cancelled our TA, FLL to Southampton, visiting Iceland and Shetland Islands on the way, that begins May 24th. I am 80 and my travel companion is 77. We are both healthy and active. Plus we are both retired RNs who have cared for many patients with infectious diseases during our lengthy careers, so feel we are knowledgeable about how to take care of ourselves and how to reduce the chances of getting sick from shipboard illnesses. As things stand at this point, we are not considering cancelling, but understand that, as time goes by and the trending of the spread of the viru
  11. I have found that embarkation day can be a good time to look for books on the exchange shelf ….. books that were left behind by departing cruisers at the end of their cruise.
  12. With the exception of the Pacific Princess, I always load up the Kindle, because the libraries, as a source of a books from an exchange shelf, let alone books for borrowing, on the other ships is iffy. We were on the Regal recently, and there were many empty shelves and more table games on the shelves than books. In contrast, the Pacific's library is cozily gorgeous, very inviting, plenty of comfortable seating, and has an enormous selection of all sorts of topics that can be borrowed, and several shelves of exchange books which is very popular, and heavily used. Even if one is no
  13. Whether or not a corkage fee will be charged seems inconsistent. We just got off the Regal a couple of weeks ago, and took a bottle per person onboard. There was a "wine table" set up for checking in the wine, but it was unmanned. One bottle was take to dinner in the Crown Grill The waiter took it to put it on ice, and served it without charging a corkage fee. I took what was left in that bottle back to the cabin, refrigerated it, and took it to the dining room the following night. The other bottle was taken to the ATD room, and again, no corkage fee was even mentioned. The
  14. When you check out the casino, look for the Game King machines. They have both video poker and video keno games on them. Every Princess ship that I have been on,( and that's most of them in the fleet.) there are at least a few Game King machines.
