  1. I do not get Elite email either. After reading this thread I went to the Princess website, signed in, and looked at the coastal cruise that I wanted and am currently booked on. All cabin categories say "Pricing Not Available." Interesting as I looked early this morning, knowing of this sale, w/o signing in and before reading this thread. All prices were listed and not discounted from when I booked last month. I wonder what is going on here?
  2. Joepeka....are we on the same cruise? May 1 2021 Emerald from Seattle RT? We are staying on board for the Emerald Alaska cruise after that. I accidently called them June cruises in my last post.
  3. We are also scheduled for an Alaskan cruise in June 2021. Our concern is that we want to be safe on a trip and expect the cruise line to feel the same way. I doubt that we would even get on a ship w/o a vaccination. Our no penalty cancel date is Jan 31 so am keeping my fingers crossed as we are going through "cruise withdrawal."
  4. We are scheduled on a cruise next May. If there is a vaccination prior to that, my DH and I will get it. We will also have a copy of all of our inoculations from our pharmacy to show proof if need be.
  5. I agree....... that balcony is perfect for the canal, you must have reserved that far in advance.
  6. Daniel A....thank you for the photo....that is so sweet. I will send a request to the email you posted. rkacruiser: I have no idea why some suites are getting the chairs and others aren't. It makes me hopeful that with both an email and a letter that our reservation will be tagged for a chair, especially for an orthopedic problem. Mark and I are Elite members of the Captain's Circle having completed 15 cruises....that may help.
  7. I really appreciate all of you taking the time to give me this helpful and hopeful information. I contacted Customer Services by email some time ago but have not heard back. Not surprising with all that is going on with the cruise industry. I also sent a letter to the Passengers Relations office in Santa Clarita this week. When and if I hear anything, I will let you know. We are Elite having completed 23 cruises with Princess……hopefully that will help get a response.
  8. Thank you all for your quick responses which are making me very nervous. Tripkr, we will be on the Coral Princess. We have not been on that ship.
  9. We have booked a Club Class mini suite for an Alaska cruise next year. Because of an arthritic condition I need a sitting chair that has arms like the Princess barrel chairs. Can someone tell me if the mini-suites still have, in addition to a sofa, a chair in the sitting area? I am aware that Princess has removed barrel chairs from standard cabins but I am asking specifically about mini-suites. I contacted Princess by email some time ago but have not heard back which is understandable given current events. Thanks for any info…….
  10. We have been cruising with Princess since 1990. 3 years ago we tried Club Class on the Star Princess and loved it for all the reasons mentioned by others. But one major positive for us was that the tables were placed further apart than in the MDR making it easier to talk. We will be on the Coral in 2021 for our 15th Alaska cruise and have booked a Club Class mini suite, one of only three left for a cruise that is one year away.
  11. We have completed 44 cruises, our first was in 1990 on the Fair Princess and we had a tiny port hole. Only once have we booked an inside cabin and that was in 1994 on RCCL's the Viking Serenade. We had already spent our cruise money that year but it was such a good deal at $250 total for both of us for a 3 day Mexico cruise. It was one of our best cruises because of the crowd on board. We spent very little time in our cabin which was more like a converted closet. Since then we are balcony only cruisers. As we get older we have become "cabin dwellers" and like spending more time on board. Last summer we booked a Neptune Suite for the 14 day Alaska cruise and loved it. Like many of you on this thread we will not do another cruise until the virus issue is resolved, which for us means vaccination.
  12. We are booked on the Ruby for a CA coastal cruise Sept 26th and are expecting cancellation. I keep wondering where is Princess going to store all of these ships? (!)
  13. Thank you all for the great information in this this thread. Does anyone have the wine by the glass list for the MDR? That would be critical for us to know before purchasing a beverage package.
  14. Have any of you seen this information below? We are booked on a 7 day CA coastal 9-26 and for us this takes the edge off.

  15. Good choice. Look at the map of your cruise and determine which side you would prefer for viewing. If Covid doesn't get in our way, we will be on the Ruby in late Sept (coastal cruise), our second time on that ship.
