  1. I agree. We chose the dining time we wanted when we book our Sept. 2022 cruise last fall. Now it no longer shows on the Princess website with our other cruise info and I can't get the app to work. VERY unhappy and will be even unhappier if we end up with a dining time we don't want.
  2. Even though we have a cruise scheduled for 2022 and are Platinum, we didn't get any email regarding the changes to loyalty level perks.
  3. Totally agree, PaperSniper4. I sent an email to the tech support address for the Medallion app about not being able to get late Traditional re-instated on our Sept. 2022 cruise. They answered, wanting more info. I sent it. Am waiting to hear back.
  4. I just tried installing the Medallion app & it seems to be installed but I can't access the Dining My Way portion where we can re-instate our late Traditional choice. Our cruise isn't until Sept. 2022, but we had our choice made when we booked the cruise last fall--we really want to be sure to get late traditional--and now it seems that isn't going to be possible. And there is no dining choice showing now on our booking on the computer. This is ridiculous! We wouldn't have even had smartphones except that we needed them for a recent trip to Hawaii to jump through the SafeTravels hoops.
  5. If we would purchase Princess shore excursions for a Sept. 2022 cruise when they became available, then rules were changed to allow private excursions, would the cost of the Princess ones be refunded when we canceled? (And if we used OBC to purchase them, would that OBC be re-credited to our account?) We have very, very seldom used Princess shore excursions, so I'm not positive how this has worked in the past (and I understand that the rules may have changed or may be changed at some point). Thanks!

  7. I will follow this with interest, as we too are doing a 21 day Med in Sept. 2022.
  8. We cruised to Alaska several years ago in Aug. One morning, we heard fellow cruisers talk about seeing the Northern Lights the night before & were bummed that we'd missed it. The same cruisers told us to go to the Passenger Service desk and ask for a wake-up call if the Lights were spotted. We set out warm clothes for a quick "get-away" and went to sleep. About 2 AM we got a call (apologizing for waking us, even though it was at our request) that the bridge had reported seeing the Lights. We hurried up to a dark spot on deck & were thrilled to see the lights, as well as hear whales "bl
  9. Any ideas about these cabins would be appreciated. We had a Med. cruise cancelled Sept. 2020. Was so disappointed that I just avoided even looking at Princess website for months. Checked for Med cruises 2022 & was surprised & unhappy to discover most rooms are already booked for the Sept. 2022 21-day cruise we want! My bad for not checking sooner, but now would really like to know something about these cabins. Thanks!
  10. Encouraging news! Will be watching closely for our refund!
  11. Our Sept. Med. cruise has been showing on the Princess website under My Account, Upcoming Cruises long past the time it was cancelled by Princess. I haven't logged onto it for a few weeks, but this morning I did and it's no longer there. Does that mean the refund on our deposit might be forthcoming soon?
  12. What about cruises cancelled by Princess going into Sept.2020? We had a Mediterranean cruise scheduled for Sept. 12. We knew we probably wouldn't be doing it, but decided to wait until final payment was due to cancel on our own & see what Princess might do. Princess cancelled it about a week and a half ago, so there is at least another class - cancelled by Princess into Sept. We took the refund option, but obviously we may or may not see a refund. Fortunately, we only had about $800 into it, plus another $180 for a prepaid Princess excursion (which we hardly ever do--of course, this would
  13. Just got off the phone with our travel agent. She said if we cancel before final payment (June 14) for our Sept. Med. cruise, we will get our deposit back. I suppose it could depend on your circumstances, though--maybe it's not true for everyone. Even though we will probably wait until a bit closer to the final payment date, I'm 99.9% certain that we will cancel. We don't want to chance getting on a ship that won't be allowed to stop in the ports. We also don't want to make final payment, tie up a large amount of money, and then have Princess cancel. We don't want any kind of Future Cruise Cre
  14. I agree about the Sept. cruise. We have one as well, for the Med., that we've planned for 2 yrs. for our 50th anniversary. I am sure we will cancel before final payment (scheduled for June), but do wish Princess would be forthcoming with more information. I really think it's already pretty obvious that Italy, for one, will not be allowing cruise ships in Sept.
  15. We've been looking forward to our 50th anniversary Sept. Med. cruise for about a year and a half, but am really thinking at this point that it's probably not going to happen. Final payment isn't until June 12, so we can wait a bit, but we are pretty much resigned to canceling (probably even if Princess doesn't - like others have posted, I'm afraid ports are doubtful as far as allowing cruise ships). Unfortunately, the fall 2021 Med. cruises don't have the same itinerary, so we may be looking at several more years before realizing our dream of the Med.
