  1. We just spoke with our rep and she moved our final payment date to Jan. 22. Much better.
  2. Thanks you for asking this. We just got a "your Final Payment is Due" for our Nov 2022 cruise. It was a bit of a shocker and they were not the least willing to change the due date. We are currently debating as to whether or not we are going to let go of the cruise or not. Since we didn't do research prior to this and discovered this propensity of Viking's, there's not much we can do. At least it's nice to know we weren't the only ones surprised by this.
  3. We went to the Orkneys and had planned a land tour there based upon our brief visit. It was a lovely place and I could not have been more impressed with the tour or all that we saw. Thankfully, it was a rainy day and we pretty much had every stop to ourselves. We would (and will) go back in a heartbeat when we can!
  4. And so many other sites to see. We had such fun 'discovering' the past
  5. According to a CNN article: The exception There's one country in the Princess line-up that's been scheduled an earlier reprieve: Australia. The cruise line said all trips in and out of Australia on their ships Majestic Princess, Regal Princess, Sapphire Princess, Sea Princess and Sun Princess can resume on October 31. The full article is here: https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/princess-cruises-cancels-sailings-december-pandemic/index.html I am hoping that will include the Pacific Princess on Dec. 21
  6. We were supposed to leave on our Alaska cruise this past Tuesday and it wasn't until that day that our cruise was 'cancelled' and our FCC/On board were given back to us.
  7. Hey, from one local to another, she is a great ship with a great crew. Give her a chance, you won't be disappointed.
  8. The ship has 650 passengers and that gives you the advantage of getting to know your shipmates and the Princess staff. despite it not having any of the bells and whistles of the bigger ships, she has a style and elegance that harkens back to the glorious days of cruising. Being a smaller ship, she can get closer to destinations, too. We docked a mile from the Heritage while the Grand had to dock a two-hour bus ride away. She is, all in all, a great little ship.
  9. We still have a cruise scheduled for June 3rd (Alaska). Until Princess tells us it's cancelled, it's our next cruise and I will get on the Pacific Princess (our favorite ship in the fleet) and happily cruise. There's no way this will stop me from cruising, barring ill health, of course. Let's all just stay positive, healthy and focused upon the prize of that next embarkation.
  10. My hat is off to Princess for their response to all of this and to answer your question, yes, I will book another cruise with Princess without a moment's hesitation. We are Princess for life.
  11. I am over 60, but have none of the other issues, nor does my husband. Thanks! I hope you will enjoy your next cruise, too. Be safe!
  12. I am very proud to call myself a Princess person. I think what they did took guts and they will lead the industry by example. Our cruise is set for June 3rd and I hope it's still a go, but if not, then I know it will be because Princess thinks it best. I'm sorry that you lost out on your cruise.
  13. Thank you for a helpful and positive post. We will be sailing on her in June and can't wait to get back 'home.' I hope that you will continue to heal and that things will look up for you. My husband was wondering who is the Maître d and the head captain in the main dining room these days. I hope you have nothing but smooth sailing ahead for you!
  14. If they were so fearful, then they should have stayed home. As far as I can tell, it's not mandatory to take a cruise and certainly they were aware of the problem beforehand. I can't believe the lengths people will go for money...
