  1. If we’re talking about the ship’s shuttle from the airport, they check everyone in. So, I think they’d have a pretty good record of those who were on the bus. Those from hotels or private shuttles from parking lots would be another story. Very interesting thread. One I hadn’t thought about. We’re not cruising before 2022, so we’ll be following early voyages to see how everything “shakes out!”
  2. We flew Business Class through EZair (last year) into Barcelona and back from Rome. The price we found was remarkable and MUCH less than any other Business Class fare we could find. We were very pleased. It was Delta into Barcelona and Alitalia from Rome back to the US. To me, it often seems like EZairs international fares are better than their domestic fares.
  3. Nope. We’ll be carefully watching all of the “start up” cruises hoping they go well. But, after 30+ cruises, we’ve pretty well determined it will be 2022 before we consider our next voyage. Ironic, since just yesterday we finally had our COVID delayed Global Entry interviews and drove home wondering when we’ll actually use the status?
  4. We sailed from (and back to) Sydney on a New Zealand Cruise. It is a spectacular port. But, I’m guessing sailing into port (if you didn’t depart from there) would be more special. When you sail from Sydney, you’ve been looking at the amazing Opera House all day so it’s not quite as unique as seeing it for the first time as it gets closer and closer on your approach.
  5. I’m in the same situation. My understanding from the Princess agent when I called was that the FCD would automatically be refunded if I did nothing ... or ... I could have it extended if requested.
  6. We generally find better fares on EZAir when traveling internationally. We had a great business class fare through Princess last October. Domestic seems to be kind of a toss up. Sometimes great ... sometimes not so much. As others have said, the good thing about EZAir is that you don’t need to pay when you book the ticket and can cancel or make changes anytime you want up until payment is due.
  7. Geez!!! It’s amazing how we can nitpick someone just simply trying to pass on some information. Yes, after 30+ cruises I realize that it’s for a cruise deposit. But, here’s where you find it on the Princess website.
  8. I'm the OP of this thread and I was answering the question asked by several. The thread was referring to the $100 FCC you purchase onboard. Our two years on one of them that we have (due to a cruise we cancelled) is expiring next month. We CAN have a refund if we want it. But, Princess will also now extend the expiration date if we'd rather keep it!
  9. No, it was just simply the $100 FCC you purchase onboard to be used as deposit on a future cruise.
  10. Princess just started a policy that allows expiring FCC’s to be extended. I received an email yesterday informing me that my DW and I each have one that is expiring next month. I won’t be booking now so I called Princess to update the credit card info for the refund. The agent informed me that FCC’s can now be extended. She wasn’t sure how long but expected it would be for at least a year.
  11. Mine’s off too. But, since I don’t have anything currently booked, I’m going to leave it alone for now. Princess has to figure this out and, if many correct them, they may not know which are are correct and which are wrong! Whatever, I’ll check in a few months and make the change if it’s not already fixed.
  12. And, even in "good" times, the time on hold waiting for an EzAir person to answer can often be VERY long!!
  13. With 30+ cruises behind us, friends always ask which was our favorite. It's always a difficult question because we've had such amazing adventures all over the world. But, one we really enjoyed was on the Island Princess in French Polynesia. Loved the breathtaking beauty and simplicity of the islands. We then took off for 5 days at sea (stopping for a few hours in Kirabati) and ended touring the Hawaiian islands. Great voyage!!
  14. Because of what others have said about LeHavre (even though we had no issues docking there), if you haven't spent much time in London, I'd do Southhampton for sure!
