  1. We have OBC and would like to use it to pay for ships excursions. Is this something I can do online with the Princess website, or do I need to call and speak to a representative?
  2. About 1 week ago, I saw the FCC on our Princess account. To my delight and surprise, this morning I saw the total refund posted to my credit card. We had filled out the Princess cancellation form for 100% refund and 25% FCC on March 12, so it took just shy of 3 months. Our cruise was scheduled for May 9, 2020. We are very happy with Princess and will continue to cruise with them in the future.
  3. This hotel looks very enticing for our pre cruise hotel in March 2021 (provided there will be cruising in March 2021!). Hopefully we can stay away from spring breakers since it's more city than beach/ocean. Does anyone know if there is a place (Publix, etc.) to buy a bottle or two of wine for the cruise nearby?
  4. It looks like there are a couple of bus companies that do the HOHO tours in Vancouver. Just wondering if one might have an edge on the other. I thought I had read that Grayline West Coast was a good one, but now I can't find that thread.
  5. Here's another couple that stores their suitcases under the bed. I'm not sure of their dimensions, but they are pretty big. I like to keep the closet space free for shoes, and longer articles of clothing.
  6. I heard Diamond Princess cruises were all cancelled through the end of May 2020.
  7. Looking for something to see and do in Victoria besides Butchart Gardens. Princess has a tour which includes Craigdarroch Castle, Mt. Tolmie, and "city highlights". Any opinions?
  8. Our cabin category (suite) is sold out for our Panama Canal cruise in 2021. The Princess rep I spoke with today said in these cases (when your cabin category is sold out), they simply "sell" the perks to you. We got wifi, gratuities, and the beverage package for $40 pp/day. Plus we keep the OBC we got as a perk when we first booked.
  9. Another vote for these!! I just ordered them for my husband and myself. They come in a variety of colors, but we just bought the black and white one. https://www.amazon.com/EverAct-Compatible-Holder-Replacement-Fitbit/dp/B01KO2T45U/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=EverAct+Compatible+Clip+Holder+Replacement+for+Fitbit+Zip+(Set+of+2%2F3%2F4)&qid=1572977586&s=sporting-goods&sr=1-1
  10. Are there any ride services like Uber or Lyft in Vancouver?
  11. Following. We will be making our flight reservations in another week or so. Wondering how early to arrive at YVR for a flight to the US. It will probably determine what our departure time will be.
