  1. I received notice from my TA this evening that our August 7th 2021 cruise on the Crown has been changed to the Ruby. I verified it on on my Princess account. Same cabin, pricing, credits, and even the casino play is intact. We have previously sailed on both ships. We liked them both. Save for a specialty restaurant (Sabatini's vs Share), they are virtually identical, so it does not seem like an inconvenience at all. When the Crown itineraries where initially announced for next spring/summer, there was some Princess fanfare to go with it. So much for that. I did not do any digging t
  2. We received our FCC on April 9th. We could see it in our Captain's Circle account. Then, a few days later, Princess randomly assigned the full FCC to a future booking. I called Princess to have them remove the FCC from that future booking. The FCC was placed back into our FCC account, where it still awaits our choice on where and when to use it, from now through May 2022. Hope this helps.
  3. The Italian Sunset, found at Crooners. Nice balance of sweet and bitter, and it looks great in the glass. Can't wait for my next one. Cheers! Link to Princess cocktail recipes: https://www.princess.com/ships-and-experience/food-and-dining/beverages/drink-recipes/
  4. My refund was posted to my credit card account this morning. I was refunded my base fare, port fees & taxes, PVP, and prepaid shore excursions. I am still owed for my now expired FCD's and for a prepaid specialty dinner reservation. On March 12th, I chose refund option 2 for a scheduled March 15th Panama Canal sailing on the Emerald. My 100% FCC posted to my Captain's Circle account back on April 9th. I had not filed a credit card dispute, although I was considering doing so in the next week or two.

  7. A very interesting and potentially damning article. It does however have the benefit of clear hindsight. The cruise industry was responding and reacting in real time to an issue that was not fully appreciated in the moment. As an example of that lack of appreciation; a quote from no less a world expert than Dr. Fauci (which curiously was not included in the referenced article) who stated on March 9th: “If you are a healthy young person, there is no reason if you want to go on a cruise ship, go on a cruise ship.” He did however warn away older people or those with underlying conditions in the
  8. As mentioned, we did receive our FCC into our account and our cruise history has been reset. What I did not mention was that there has been no FCD posted back to our account as of yet. Curious if they will place the FCD's back into our Captain's Circle account or if they will refund them along with the other items due.
  9. Indeed so. We are eager for the next cruise. Whenever that may be.
  10. Our cancelled March 15th cruise "finished" on March 30th. It showed up in my cruise history as completed with the added days posted. It was removed and the total cruise days reset on April 9th, which coincided with my FCC's being posted to my account.
  11. We received our 100% FCC on April 9th. We applied for option 2 on the morning of March 12th. The sailing was scheduled for March 15th. Still no refund to the credit card however.
  12. A lot of upward movement on Carnival stock prices this morning. News today of a recent huge bet on Carnival stock. An informative article on Barrons' website today: https://www.barrons.com/articles/carnival-stock-rallies-after-saudi-stake-disclosure-and-a-zero-sail-liquidity-assessment-51586186393 I am considering buying more shares, but as an avid cruiser, I am emotionally invested. So since I am not a financial advisor, I am running the idea by mine. At the end of the day, its gambling.
