  1. Has anyone cancelled their upcoming casino rate cruise booked lately? I am specifically asking about the offers that came this year since the covid shut down. I am asking because I am considering cancelling our January 10th cruise, but want to know how the taxes, port fees and $100 per person deposit we paid which was to be given back as OBC will be handled. Thanks in advance
  2. Does anyone have recent experience with cancelling one of the " free" cruises. I know I will loose all the perks that came with the offer, but what about my actual money paid for port fees and taxes, and the $100 per person deposit that was to be given back as OBC? Our is scheduled for January 10, and just not feeling confident that they will be ready.
  3. I am not sure you are correct. I received the same offer, and others have as well from many previous topic's. The Casino department offers you a free room (interior), and Free play in the casino of $250. We had to pay port fees. But at the time we also,had to pay a $100 deposit per person, which is the given back as OBC.
  4. Pia, just love to hear this. Is there a way to email you? I have a question for you but don't want to post it here. Do you know how to send that to me through CC privately? Thanks in advance
  5. Back in the day Pia1913 did some great "Live from". Love that 5pm, or 4pm, or.......was Wine time , LOL WinksCruises is a total hoot. love following Mr & Mrs Winks. I saw someone mention LittleMissMagic. Her and her family Reviews are great. Also love Bimmer as well. Years ago there was a great Carnival group and Host Randy and Chris (GoingCruisin) was part of them. Saints-N-Sinners. Their Live reviews were hysterical
  6. What are you most looking forward to seeing as new Topics in the Princess forum? Once Princess actually has a real start up date in sight, I can't wait to see these: 1) a daily update to the CD and entertainment director list. What fun it will be to see everyone starting to move again, and where our favorite CD's end up 2) New posts about crew, entertainment staff, officers, etc being contracted again and start getting deployed out to ships! 3) continued updates from Princess as to Cruise , Health & safety. 4) progress during covid shutdown as to Medallian flee
  7. Could be they already know that late 2021 cruise needs to be changed. Ship change, itinerary etc? With all the itinerary and ship changes going on anything is possible. What ship and where was it going? With them moving the majority of your FCC to the later cruise, they have less to deal with once the ship /itinerary/cancellation is announced that needs to be changed?
  8. I like that idea. Easy to keep track of. Keep the free play chips separate from any I hopefully win playing craps. Then once the special ones are gone I am good to go cash in!
  9. I am currently booked on a January 10, 2021 cruise on the Caribbean Princess. It was booked on the first round of Cason's offers. Exactly how does the free play money work? Do they give you the cash at the Casino cashier, or table chips, or do they put it on you players card? thanks
  10. So back when the first round casino offers came out we took the 7 day, inside cabin. I paid port fees and $100 pp which was given back as OBC. There was also $250 casino credit, beverage package, gratuities and free wifi. If out January 10th cruise is in the next round of cruises getting canceled, does anyone know if all of those perks remain in tact as a FCC? Or just what I actually paid?
  11. We just did the same cruise Jan 27-Feb 11. Here is what we did: Hilo: did a private tour which covered Volcanoes Nat’l park, rainbow falls, black sand beach, macadamia nut tour. Ricky’s tours. Google then email him. Honolulu: took a uber to Pear Harbor. Reserve your spot ahead if time under National parks website. When you get there we paid $7.50 for narrated headsets. Very worth it. Then we ubered to Waikiki beach Kauai: private plane tour. Absolutely amazing. Saw Waimea canyon, Napali coast, whales breaching. Best tour we’ve ever done. Wings Over Kauai
  12. As far as who is getting layed off, here is what I experienced. Just received a call and follow up emails last week from a PVP at Carnival. She introduced herself, and I joined her Carnival sponsored FAcebook page. Yesterday received a FB message from a admin person saying that her group page is closed, and she is no longer with the company. I think she had 14 years experience.
  13. Great information. Thank you! I was hoping the crew would be allowed to leave by now.
  14. Does anyone have a list, or an update on which Princess ships are still at sea or trying to offload passengers? and for ships that have no passengers and are just docked or floating around -do you know if they have released all crew to go back home?
