  1. Old locks on the Island Princess, if possible, is magnificent. It has been my all time favorite cruise. The history, ports, beauty... all spectacular! I only had one issue with the entire cruise; in Cartagena I didn't have an excursion booked and was just going to walk around. I had my at-the-time 6 month old strapped to my chest and just wanted to walk around and see the area close to the ship. In the gated ship area it was nice with some interesting stuff and tropical birds to look at. But once leaving the gates I was bombarded with taxi drivers and people pushing items and car rides o
  2. Princess' left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. It'll all get cleared up in the end. No pun intended, but these are uncharted waters for all of us with the pandemic. Just be sure if you call, please be nice. These people deal with so much negativity, a little kindness goes a long way.
  3. It was two 7 day cruises. Princess is now going through all the back to backs people have booked to cancel. You can book them, but then in a week or so, you'll get a message that your trip has been canceled.
  4. Well, just got notice this morning that my trip has been cancelled.... I'm devastated and pissed. Two years of planning and now nothing....
  5. I was thinking the same thing. If they want me to pack and get off the ship, take a test, then go back on, I'm totally good with it.
  6. I already have my elite person on it, but I am so curious to see how I'm going to sail next year. Technically my sailing is two 7 day back to back cruises. Will I have to pack up and get off the ship? Will I only be allowed to go for the first 7 days? It'll be interesting to see how they swing this.
  7. It'll be interesting to see what they do about people without phones, disabilities in using devices, and kids without phones.
  8. My December cruise that was cancelled still shows. Just makes me sad every time I open the app.
  9. I have a Caribbean cruise booked for the beginning of July of 2021 out of Ft. Lauderdale. I'm really hoping it is happening.
  10. I was looking into these (have it saved on my wishlist). Was it secure enough? I was worried about it falling out.
  11. I'm planning ahead (hoping for the future) and was wondering how you prefer to carry your medallion? I'm debating on just keeping it in the lanyard or getting the wrist band thing. What are your personal opinions?
  12. Thankfully my kids are older and I can sit further back, but the worst was when they wanted to go swimming and not a chair in sight was available (only a few actually being used, the others full of "stuff") so I just had to stand there, like an idiot.... I don't understand people's lack of decency. I get it if someone wants to sit out all day, and there are those that do, but if you are only going to use the chair for an hour or two, come on people!
  13. Starting in September, Costa cruises is going to do sailings (only with Italian guests, but it's a start). They will do mandatory covid testing in the terminal before you get on the ship, a rapid test (who pays for it, I don't know). Would you take a test before getting on a ship if it was mandated? I am asking because I really want to know peoples' answers. My position is, yes, I would take a test if I could cruise. There are many of other positions because of false positives and negatives, etc. And who would cover the cost of getting home/cruise if
  14. I filled out the survey and sent my answers in. It took FOREVER! There were so many questions.
  15. That's one of the best desserts!!!!! We're all kids at heart, right?!
