  1. I don't have a web site, but I do have most of the printed books that go back to the late 1990's. If you provide more details on what itineraries you would like I may be able to look them up. Examples, ship's in Alaska, sailings from San Pedro.
  2. Another option is to write to the the CA Department of Consumer Affairs in Sacramento. Include all the details and attachments as necessary. Send a copy to Princess Cruises legal department. Don't expect an answer from the State, but you might receive some response from Princess. I did this a number of years ago with good results. You could do this in parallel with other actions.
  3. This is not the time for additional investments to hardware or software.
  4. Seems I've read that mothballing is expensive and complicated, more expensive and difficult than keeping the ships operational with small crews. Maybe Chang can shed some light on the mothballing process.
  5. Not a good time to hire contractors to fly to these ships, quarantine them,feed them, and then fly them home. Without any income it's also not a good time to incur extra expenses.
  6. Majestic Princess. R101/2/3/4, R201/2 do not connect. These cabins have passenger cabins on the decks above and below, a good sign. Bridge officers on the wings of the bridge will be able to see onto your balcony should they choose to look. The area directly forward of cabins 101/2 is likely deck officer cabins and a quiet area. Officers are on duty 4 hours on and 8 off. Someone is sleeping all the time. I have been in this area on other Princess ships and there is a sign when you enter the secure area which indicates it is a quite area.
  7. The sun will be to your south. This could be important to you. On your two sea days you will receive afternoon sun on the port side in route to Kotor, and all day sun on the port side heading to Barcelona.
  8. We have been on a few of these and Princess notified us of the disembarkation delays. Bottom line for voyages returning from Europe, South America or other locations where the ship has been out of the U.S. for a season or more do not book early flights. On these sailings boarding for the next voyage is also delayed by a few hours.
  9. The below statement from Princess describes cruises currently being offered. Unfortunately the current situation effects the uncertainty of the deployment of vessels and itineraries, and thus delays publishing of future itineraries. I'm hoping to see 2022 post vaccine sailings published later this year. We are currently assessing enhanced health and safety protocols in light of COVID-19 and how they may impact our future offerings. Our actual offerings may vary from what is displayed or described here. Stay updated on current Travel Advisories and Health & Safety protocols.

  10. Caribill Our understanding is that passengers that pay for laundry receive it back the next day or presto depending on which box is checked. Think next day procedure requires you to provide laundry to your cabin steward in the morning of day one to receive it back in the evening of day two. I think this is what you refer to as several days.
  11. Just a note, really never had an issue with the ship's laundry. Don't feel it's an issue, but I would not send expensive delicate items. Also note irons are free in every laundry room. There is a laundry room on every passenger deck of the Crown except on the Lido deck.
  12. It's almost exactly the same as today's bank rate, 1.35276
  13. With very few exceptions Princess changes their ship time to meet local port times. The only exception I have encountered was for Puerto Vallarta. Puerto Vallarta is a different time zone than the other two Mexican ports, one hour later. The Captain choose to not change the ship's clocks for this one port of call. Just watch the Princess Patter. Keep tabs of the time with a watch, cell phones can give an incorrect time. Private shore tour guides will know when the ship arrives. Ship's tours will know the time.
  14. A bag of standard laundry, underwear, socks, T's & polos, shorts, pants cost around US$50. Attached is a price list. Cruises Laundry List Prices.doc
  15. Assuming you are traveling post COVID-19 it should be fairly quickly once the ship is cleared. While the virus is still active??? San Pedro is has not been as efficient as Ft. Lauderdale. I would allow sufficient time if you are trying to plan a flight.
