  1. The second sentence of the article says 'Details on the additional health and safety measures to be implemented will be announced at a later date'. Even though everyone will be vaccinated, the logistics of other health precautions and port requirements remain unknown (or at least un-announced).
  2. Good question. I have resisted the urge to respond to several threads over the past few months about the drink package, MDR offerings, onboard entertainment, etc. WHO KNOWS what cruising will look like when it returns?? The way things 'used to be' may have no bearing whatsoever on what it looks like when it resumes.
  3. He said "I would imagine by the time we get to April, that will be what I would call, for better wording, ‘open season,’” he said on Thursday. “Namely, virtually everybody and anybody in any category could start to get vaccinated.” It would take “several more months” after that to get the vaccines into most people’s arms, he said, adding that he hoped the overwhelming majority of people in the United States could be vaccinated by mid-to late summer. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/11/us/fauci-covid-vaccine-april.html This also corresponds to the Biden admin's comments
  4. We are booked on this same cruise -- we had a very similar cruise cancelled in 2020 (that one also included stops in Paris and Aarhus). I am not very optimistic it will sail.
  5. We have eaten breakfast in Sabatini's as well and enjoyed the mimosas.....but the OP was specifically asking about the room service menu, so that's how I responded.
  6. Actually suites have an expanded room service menu for breakfast, including more hot choices. Suites can also get room service on disembarkation day, which is not available to other cabin categories. Having access to the full dining room menu for evening meals is one our favorite suite perks! We love dining on our balcony and don't have a problem with everything delivered at once. Edit to say I have my own copy of the suite room service menu, but rather than dig it out I just did a quick Google image search for this example. You can search that way too for regula
  7. According to Princess' website, the Island is Medallion Class https://www.princess.com/ships-and-experience/ships/ip-island-princess/ I'm sure you're going to get many negative comments about the Island in this thread. We have an Island cruise booked for later this year that I doubt will happen due to the pandemic. As you have probably discovered, the Island has many unique itineraries so if you want to take those cruises, the Island may be the only way to do it. Do I expect it to be my favorite ship? No. Am I willing to take the cruise (if it happens) to enjoy the unique itine
  8. Thank you for this detailed info! I had looked all over for info on the blank spot between 718 & 722, so it's good to know that is a crew area with ice machine.
  9. You might find this thread interesting. We too are booked on the Island for a very itinerary-specific cruise, so we'll have to make the best of the ship to get where we want to go 🙂 I found the pictures and review on that thread helpful.
  10. https://www.princess.com/ships-and-experience/food-and-dining/beverages/ Per the terms and conditions in the link above The package includes all, specialty or premium coffees and teas, hot chocolate, fountain sodas, fresh juices (if available), Gong Cha items (if available), Frappes at Coffee & Cones, mocktails, and smoothies as per the menu, Red Bull and Milk Shakes (if available).
  11. Poster said BALCONIES have 2 chairs and a table. AFAIK the barrel chair and desk chair have nothing to do with balcony seating which should still be 2 chairs and a table.
  12. For our next booked cruise the excursions listed are exactly the same as they were for the cruise we had planned for September 2020 that was cancelled. So I haven't seen any changes in the offerings for us. Having said that, I think there are so many unknowns right now surrounding the pandemic, vaccine schedules, and the return to cruising, that speculating on excursion requirements is just that -- speculation. It's hard to tell right now when cruising will return, let alone all the logistics of each separate port and their local and state safety requirements.
  13. That's good to hear. The problem for some of us is we like to check our EZ Air prices periodically to see if we can get a better fare/schedule. I'm not going to call a rep for that. I should be able to quickly look myself in the personalizer per usual.
  14. I've been having same problem all weekend. I just tried again and got the 'technical difficulties' message. Very frustrating, especially if they are telling people everything is fine and they aren't even working on it.
  15. Yes, both of my upcoming cruises do not show up in the personalizer.
