  1. He arrived home yesterday. No word on future plans.
  2. Actually, a friend emailed me and alerted me to the post. Looking forward to meeting you in 2023. 🙂
  3. Thanks for thinking of me. I’m not really “dark” but once CC dropped Tapatalk, I found it a PITA to post on CC. And yes, I am active on several roll calls. Here are my notes from our experience. I’ll probably set it up again for my sister, who passed away a couple of years ago. Ashes at Sea Updated: You now send your request with your name, ship name, sailing date, and booking number to ashesrequest@princesscruises.com “The purpose of this is to provide information for those who might be considering this. It's illegal to do this on your own without p
  4. Not sure what to tell you. I’d booked an inside guarantee on the Sun with the Plus package and have now booked an inside guarantee on the Crown without the package and the price difference is huge (less.) Massive. Like the Crown is half the cost of the Sun would have been. I don’t spend time in my cabin so a balcony isn’t a “must.” I’ve never done a guarantee before so we’ll see what happens.
  5. I’m re-booked from the Sun Princess to the Crown Princess 7/3/21. The difference between the “Savers” and “Plus” is huge so the Plus isn’t worth it to me since I rarely drink and get the free WiFi anyway. Got specialty dining plus extra OBC.
  6. I agree. The law was passed to protect US shipping, which still very much exists. Cruising is relatively small compared to international shipping. Several years ago, Senator Inouye of Hawaii, whose wife happened to be a godmother for an NCL ship, tried to amend the PVSA that would require all foreign-flagged ships to spend 50% of all port time in foreign ports and some other changes. Of course, that would have allowed NCL, which at the time had three US-flagged ships sailing in Hawaii, to be the only ships that could sail to/from Hawaii and Alaska. Then, some senators, such as Ted Ke
  7. True but if you need handicapped parking and park closest to 93, it’ll be a hike from pier 92. Yes, same parking lot but equidistant only if you park in the middle or back of the parking lot.
  8. Confirmed by Princess to TAs that it’s the Crow.
  9. Received notification this morning from my TA that it’s the Crown. She sent me the itineraries and pricing.
  10. Can always ask to have the thread title changed and moved.
  11. If you were booked on the Sun 7/3/21 and haven’t joined the roll call, it’s there. 🙂 I’ve been booked on this cruise for quite a while and was disappointed to learn it’s been canceled. For those of you who have been on these boards a while, “Wizard-of-Roz” and her dog Horton were booked on this cruise. Her sister-in-law just posted on the roll call that Roz passed away last week. I’ve sailed with her quite a few times over the years and was so sad to hear this. RIP.
  12. According to a well-known Entertainment Director, Carnival Corporation constitutes almost 50% of the mass cruise industry. Combining loyalty programs would be an anti-trust violation. P&O owned Princess before being bought by Carnival Corporation. Once P&O was purchased, the two lines became separate entities. Because they were once the same company, loyalty was reciprocated for years.
  13. Canceled: 3/13/20 Cruise: Royal Princess 4/18/20 Mexican Riviera Requested: FCC (100 + 50%) Received: 6/1/20 Applied to 10/24/20 Mexican Riviera cruise on the Royal
  14. As said, Carnival Cruise Lines doesn’t own nor is the parent company. Carnival Corporation is and if the corporation’s policy is doctor’s note or chronic condition, it would affect not only Princess but HAL, Cunard and Seaborne which tend to have older demographics.
