  1. Our October cruise on the Enchanted was just cancelled. Our TA sent us a summary of the cancellation including our extra $100 pp credit. It’s now out of our personalizer.
  2. I don’t know why they wouldn’t just clear those all out. Glad I’m not the only one is this situation.
  3. Is there any reason Princess would keep those looking like they’re active? Seems like it would be fairly simple to purge them from the system?
  4. Our Enchanted cruise for October was cancelled some time ago. The weird thing is, it’s still showing in my personalizer. It tells me I have 104 days until I sail. I called Princess and they tell me they don’t know when this will get removed. Is anyone else in this same situation?
  5. Is it better to let Princess cancel our October Med cruise or should we cancel ourselves? Payment isn’t due until July. I’m thinking if we let Princess cancel it they might be more forthcoming with perqs that if we drop out on our own. Thoughts?
  6. We were able to book flights from CVG to Barcelona and then from Rome to CVG. No problems at all. Did you book it from your personalizer? Ours seemed to know where we’d be flying from and to for both legs.
  7. My wife loves the chicken salad at the IC. I had never heard of a Lebanon Potato but had one on our recent cruise. It was so good, I got 2 more!
  8. Yes, that’s the better of the 2 gates, IMO. No checkpoint unlike the other gate. No check for documentation. We got to PE at 10:30 and were on board by 10:45.
  9. This was posted in the EP page on the book of faces: “as it stands right now when sea trials commence senior engineers will be amassed from fincantieri shipbuilders to oversee the sea trials and the finish work will be mostly completed by the primary shipbuilder using staff from the discovery princess team......the date of sea trials is still being scheduled...my friend marco will be sitting in on the meeting on friday..i was supposed to be with the subcontracting team but that was cancelled due to coronavirus threat ...i am disappointed because i was on the sky princess sea trials so i could make comparisons but i will make a point at some time to sail on her.....”
  10. We are sailing on the Enchanted this October. Our total dropped about $500 plus we got all the Best Sale Ever freebies.
  11. Ask the Uber driver to use the Eisenhower St gate off 17th. If they enter via SR 84/Marina Blvd it can get really backed up with shuttle buses from hotels west of the port.
  12. Lori I’m with you on the trivia! The CD staff person was running the contest we did and she gave first place to another team. She announced the winning score and ours was higher. I take this stuff seriously too so we were hacked off! I agree with your other comments, we had a blast!
  13. In the past, we’ve stayed at the Rodeway Inn or Ramada on highway 84 just west of the airport. The have free shuttles, breakfast and a pool. Nice places but not fancy. Kind of out in the boondocks. We’ve taken an Uber to the beach before from there for something to do. This year we tried the Fala Hotel, a small (12 rooms?) on Seville St, just off A1A half a block north of the Ritz Carlton. They don’t offer shuttle service, but Uber service from the airport was about $18.00. Lately we’ve been Ubering to Port Everglades anyway to beat the crowds, so price wise it was about even with the 2 aforementioned properties. The better location makes it a winner IMO. It’s close to bars, restaurants, shops, liquor stores and pharmacies. We were able to enjoy walking along the malecon and being this close to the beach made us feel like we were getting a jump on our vacation! The room was clean, comfortable and newly renovated. It had everything we needed. I’d definitely stay there again!
  14. I didn’t see it working when we were on board last week, 2/16-23. And in an effort not to disappoint Husky61....Retreat pool is not part of the Sanctuary, and the Cabanas at the retreat pol have to be rented.
  15. Just curious about what kind of post production work you do on your photos? What software do you use? We got back a week ago and I need to jump into the PhotoSweatShop and get things going! Very nice images!
