  1. We have had 3 bookings cancelled so far including one where final had occurred. Refunded in full after 90+ days. We have 3 segments booked for 2021, 2 in March and 1 in Oct. Not hopeful for March but our Oct TA from Venice on Pacific Princess might happen. We would like to sail this baby ship before it is sold.
  2. No problem with any of yourv17 points despite waiting for a refund. We will sail after vaccine has been distributed.
  3. Pretty sure Royal class ships have 3 banks of elevators with 6 at midships.
  4. Rome is chock a block full of great hotels in great locations. We like staying in San Piedrini near the Trevi and Pantheon. So much to see and do within easy walking distance. Why confine yourself to Princess hotels?
  5. The final payment date is 60 days now but the cancellation fee dates are not and depend on the length of the cruise. https://www.princess.com/plan/cruise-with-confidence/cancellation-final-payment-policy/ https://www.princess.com/plan/standard-cancellation-refund-policy/
  6. Cancelled our Mar 29 cruise on Mar 11. Took 91 days for full refund on credit card. Cancelled our Oct 31 Panama canal cruise today and was informed refund of deposit could take up to 120 days.
  7. Note that there is still a cancellation penalty of deposit between 45-74 days despite the move of final from 90 to 60. https://www.princess.com/plan/standard-cancellation-refund-policy/
  8. I thought Princess had moved final payment to 60 days from 90. Does this not apply to UK travellers as well?
  9. I do not know the exact expenses involved in upgrading a ship to Medallion but my guess is that these upgrades have been moved to the future in most if not all cases.
  10. Agreed. Assuming COVID death rate is about 0.5%, any vaccine will have to be ultra safe in order to provide more good than bad. Good news is that there are several vaccines in the running, including one already approved for emergency use in an Asian country.
  11. The Sky had 2 uncovered pools on the Lido deck on our Nov TA. One was definitely heated to a much warmer temperature than the other.
  12. Yes, very sad. Smallpox used to kill millions. It wiped out entire populations of Indians in NA, the Caribbean, and entire tribes in Africa as well as regularly killing Europeans. Thank God for Jenner. The virus only exists in labs now. Polio was a scourge as well. Measles is even more contagious than the coronavirus. Yellow fever also has a vaccine as does some pneumonias that kill us older folk. I get my tetanus shot every few years as well. I feel bad for people who cannot understand the simple math and logic of vaccination.
  13. Yes, we are booked for 15 days on Coral for Oct 31, 2020. We may cancel as well.
  14. We have a 15 day transit on Coral booked for Oct 31, sailing E to W with EZAir booked already. Wonder what happens now.
