  1. It is the policy of the Cruise line not to allow you to bring it onboard. While you are on their ship you have to abide by their rules. You can go on and on about this but the answer is no. If you do not like the answer then take a land tour to the East Coast instead of a cruise. Enough already and I live in Canada.
  2. As I said I have not travelled with Princess cruise line for 10 years but I have cruised 14 cruises with Princess some of them 10 day and 15 days cruises. I have also been Mainly travelling on Cunard the last one being 56 days and Holland American that last one being 29days. They are under the Carmival unbrella so my Loyalty should not be be questioned. my question was is the benefits from platinum to elite really worth me booking another cruise before our upcoming 19 day transatlantic?
  3. Thank you for all the replies. I was just wondering if it was worth booking another cruise to get to the Elite level for the transatlantic cruise we have booked. We live in Canada so it not easy for us to jump on a three day cruise even going on a seven day cruise doe not make make sense. we are excited about the cruise we have booked on the Sky Princess. Whether we are Elite or not I am sure we will have the best of times.
  4. we have not sailed with Princess for 10 years. No reason but we are planning a trip in August 2020 beacause of the intinery. My question we need one more credit to become Elite and are the benefits really much different. Sorry if this has been covered before.
  5. Thank you Coral as I said you live and learn. The message I am trying to get out is people have to be careful when they join a group cruise whether it is your best friend or a neighbour. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜
  6. We are also booked on one of these group cruises. We are like the other person paying top $$$$ for the cruise with the promise of being able to take advantage of promotions and price reductions. When I check other web sites the price is comparable to what we are paying so to me the t/a did not give us any deal to book with them. Like the op so far we havebeen unable to take advantage of any promotions. if you cancel and book with Princess you loose the ability to join the group for functions. But you can take advantage of their promotions. I am sure the leader of our group was as us not informed of all the rules of the booking from the t/a so no blame there. so you live and learn people. We have cruised 100+ and still learning.
  7. Why. I have held two bookings both with different T/A.
  8. Yes you can have two duplicate cabins booked.
  9. Yes I realize they will be in US but if you do not have OBC you gratuities and other purchases will be at the new rate? Sorry if I am repeating myself.
  10. If you have future cruises booked does that mean when you add to your cruise like shore excursions, specialty dinning do you get the rate you booked or the new rate?
  11. Thank you all for you input and suggestions on this topic. You all have been a great source of information. I think I understand this booking now. I assumed when we all made our own booking with the travel agent that we were individual bookings and we would be grouped by our booking numbers just like when I have gone before with friends. I misunderstood we were booked as a one entity. i beleive our transatlantic cruise is divided into five countries that you can board and Princess has assigned so many cabins for each boarding port. Our embarking Port has so many cabins assigned to it and I beleive we have used up most of them. i also didn't realize I had to go through our group leader to change anything on my booking. Apparently because of the closed group and the lack of space in my category I would have to cancel and rebook causing me to loose the cabin. I would then be put on a guarantee and have to take whatever cabin is available when Princess assigns them. I have never came across this before. In fact I was shocked. i have no interest who gets what for booking the cabins I just have never came accross this problem of not being able to take avantages of promotions and price deductions if they occur when booking so far in advance. We are paying a premium price for this transatlantic cruise. I put it out here to get advice on how to handle my booking quietly without causing any trouble within the group.
  12. I am beginning to understand this booking. I knew it was a group booking but not a private booking. I am a seasoned cruiser 100+ and have travelled on many cruises with a bunch of people. the t/a and now the group leader says we will have amenities but they wont devulge what they are. Of course I don't want to upset the apple cart and we add excited to go but I also don't want to lay top but with no perks.
  13. So does that mรกke us ineligible for any other promotions because of this private group?
