  1. In the U.S. there are problems with people refusing to wear masks. If masks are a requirement in areas of the ship where you can't social distance, what happens when there are passengers that won't comply.Lock them up? throw them overboard?Put them off the ship in the next port? I like to think our fellow passengers will comply with any new rules. Right now we have cancelled (or Princess has cancelled ) cruises. We booked our first cruise for July 2021. I am hopeful by then there is a vaccine and Princess has started cruising with good health results on board the ships. Years ago when Princess and other cruise lines had to stop at a foreign port(cruises to Hawaii ,coastals). They would make Ensenada a stop but not really. Ship would be off the coast of Ensenada and someone would come on board and do the paperwork for complying. No docking and no passengers got off.Nice and easy. Maybe that is something they could do for Alaska without actually stopping in a Canadian port.
  2. Thanks for the information Pam. I am going to try and book 7/3. We were originally booked for the 14 day on the Golden this year so am excited that Princess will be doing the 14 day out of LA. We didn't book the Sun because I actually don't like those balcony cabins. The cabin itself is so tiny, smaller than any Princess ship. Was going to book something out of SF but now with the Crown being the ship, so glad.
  3. We were on the Sky. Dolphin Deck D708 (friends were in D704 and D 706). These are much larger balconies. The size square footage of cabin with balcony on the deck plans and cabin are totally wrong. They are larger than the mid ship ones on Emerald deck (Obstructed but not really) Nice, a quiet location on Dolphin. there are forward cabins also large like the ones we had.
  4. Did you cancelled your flight or did AA. We have a flight in January also with points and haven't cancelled it yet but did cancel our cruise.
  5. Same with mine. Really odd.How could their website be too busy on a Saturday night.
  6. If you cancel before Princess does for the next round of cancellations, you get your refund right away. It is when we get caught up in the huge Princess cancels cruises that the big wait begins. I cancelled in July for October cruises (before Princess cancelled) and my money was on my credit card in a few days. No bonus FCC but I just wanted my money back and got it. We have a couple of cruises for January 2021 and will probably cancel soon before Princess.
  7. I agree. We are out of FCD because as we cancelled cruises, they expired and have been returned on our credit card. The rest of my FCD are applied to cruises. I would like the opportunity to buy some so I could use for future bookings in 2022.
  8. Our accounts for mine and my husband's information (birthdays and everything else) is all correct. I know that Cunard uses PRINCESS membership number because that is what happened when I sailed on them a couple of years ago. Today I checked my HAL, Costa, and Carnival accounts and they are showing individual account numbers not the Princess number that some of you said happened. All but Costa had loyalty numbers correct too. Costa had none of my previous cruises listed. They have a very strange loyalty Program now, Everything expires after a couple of years. Some kind of point system. Glad we no longer cruise on Costa(not since the late 1990's). Greatful that Princess has such a good program. Ones showing Princess numbers on the other cruise lines, did you sign in as you usually do and the numbers are now changed?
  9. I haven't cruised Costa in several years. However, we did cruise the line a lot in the 1990's. Was surprised to see today that their loyalty program is different from the other cruise lines owed by Carnival. No where does it show the many costa cruises we sailed in the past. Looks like my loyalty shows 0. Is this how that point system now works. They expire? I was curious and wanted to see the ships I had sailed on and no where on the website does it show them. On Holland America, Princess, and Carnival, we have gotten credit for all our cruises and have establish a nice level of loyalty.
  10. Production shows on Princess are far superior. Last time on HAL, really couldn't call any of the shows production. HAL does have better cabins. Lack of a second chair and small table in Princess cabins has made it very uncomfortable especially for room service breakfast. It is now forcing us to go deluxe balcony cabin or mini suites if we book a long cruise.
  11. If you are looking at a balcony cabin, plenty on both decks with large balconies. We have stayed in D627 and nice totally covered balcony. Most of the cabins on Caribe starting at C311 and C312 all the way back to end are partially covered and large I have stayed in a few of those. On Dolphin the fully covered and decent sized balconies D625-629, D624-628 are priced well as I believe they are BD so you aren't paying a premium for these balconies. Plenty of good choices. Try not to go totally to the last cabins. With the addition of cabins on the Island, there is some vibrations but I think may only be in the lower decks.
  12. I didn't enjoy my food. I ordered some kind of fish for main dish, forgot what was called on the menu. The fish was fish sticks. I ate a couple and gave the rest to my friends eating with us. By no means a gourmet meal.Others seem to like their meals. Wouldn't eat there again. We were lucky and our table was a little towards the back. Most tables had people walking past them on the way to somewhere else. And really noisy because of music in Piazza.Not a nice venue at all.
  13. Strange ,was your deposit a FCD or did you pay cash. My 4 were FCD but they expired so instead of going back in my account they were refunded to my credit card. This may be an automatic thing as we had in the past when we cancelled. I am now looking at a couple of cruises for January to cancel. This morning I went in and cancelled the EZair as well as excursions. None were paid for yet (the excursions would have been from OBC). Didn't want to get charged for anything .
  14. In early July I cancelled two cruises for this October. I knew that if I waited a bit I would probably get more than my deposits back from Princess if they cancelled those cruises(additional FCC). I chose to cancel first so as not to get into the mass refunds due as we had in our phase one cancellations. My credits appeared on my credit card within a week. I rather have my money quickly than get caught up in my 87 day wait again.And Princess cancelled those cruises this week. It is unbelievable that people are still waiting since March for their refunds. Something is horribly wrong in Princess' processing system. We are all living with such stress right now (Covid 19) and money should not be an added stress. In reading this thread, I feel so sorry for all that are still waiting. Now I am reading about the charge backs. What is happening with Princess, crazy.
