  1. Spoke with the my PVP yesterday. He said the fully expect an announcement from Princess this week about what the CDC has said. I totally expect my cruise. to be cancelled. Was optimistic for a while but I will be cashing out now and going on vacation somewhere for our 25th wedding anniversary. I will try cruising again once things settle.
  2. I have done a lot of research and have decided to up my budget a little. I am looking at the Canon SL3. If I can find a good Black Friday deal, I may go up to the canon 90d but I don’t think the price will drop that low. any thoughts on these two cameras?
  3. Please let us know what your TA says. I am curious as this has been rumored but never verified for US cruising.
  4. The Crown is the ship doing Alaska, Mexico, and California Coast I starting in May 2021. I have a two week Alaska cruise in it.
  5. you gotta think these cruises will be cancelled or it will become a requirement. All cruises so far have required this. I can’t imagine Princess (or the port cities) would want people Walking around willy nilly without any controls. Unless they have some serious testing onboard.

  7. Does anyone have any experience with the Canon G7X Mark 2? I have seen good things. I plan to compare against the cameras suggested but wanted to see any opinions on this camera.
  8. Absolutely love these cameras but unfortunately outside of my budget. Hopefully I can find a good Black Friday deal or something.
  9. My wife and I are going to cruise to Alaska next summer (fingers crossed). We want to invest in a good video camera to document our trip but dont want to break the bank. We have looked at the GoPro's as I have heard they are good, reliable, waterproof cameras. I dont know if anyone has any suggestions on other cameras? Thanks... EB
  10. Very nice! Celebrations everywhere! Congrats!
  11. My main concern now is the Canadian ports. US cruising looks like it may be slowly starting. Our cruise is 7/17 out of LA. Keeping our fingers crossed as it will be our 25th wedding anniversary.
  12. I know our cabin was much lower. On the Sun, our price minus taxes was $4398. On the Crown it was $3118. With the difference plus the 25% FCC, I was able to book a 10 day mexican cruise that will only cost me the tax/port fees. Very happy camper now.
  13. I rebooked for the 17th also. I am not sure why the price difference is so substantial. Des anyone know? I ended up having enough cruise credit left to fully pay for a 10 day cruise to Mexico on the Grand Princdss in 2022 (minus taxes and fees). Does anyone know why it was so much cheaper? I expected it to be the same or more then the Sun cruise.
  14. Thanks for the advice. I am going to decide this weekend but overall, I am thinking inside will be best for the situation. As part of my Sun cancellation, I will be getting $1100 and while it brings me close to a balcony. I still would have to find another $1300 or so.
  15. I am going on the Crown Princess next summer to Alaska. I have a few balcony questions for people who have been on a balcony on an Alaskan cruise. 1) I am curious which side of the ship is best for a balcony. The cruise starts and ends in LA so it isn’t a North or South bound cruise where the side is obvious. 2) How much light gets in when the blinds are closed? My wife is a very light sleeper and hates sunlight waking her up. Will it be fairly dark when the blinds are closed? 3) Does the balcony and the large glass window cause the room to be too cold in an Alaskan
