  1. We are cruising the middle of May and want to do the White Pass Scenic Railway. There are 2 time choices for it: 8 am - 11 am or 12 noon - 3 pm. I know you can’t predict the weather for me, but based on your life or cruise experience, which one would you pick and why?
  2. Has anybody stayed in one of these cabins and can post a pic of the inside floor plan? I have already searched YouTube and the carnival website to no avail. The cabin numbers are either 5342 or 5343.
  3. What are the additional benefits you get with booking a Grand Suite besides the bigger/nicer room?
  4. We had the Vacation Protection and I just called our PVP to cancel our Alaska sailing the end of the month. We were able to get a full refund back to our initial form of payment. It takes 7-10 business days for it to apply.
  5. Thank you so much! This is exactly what I was looking for.
  6. Cruising with our granddaughter for the first time out of Jacksonville in December and wondering if there is a self serve laundry with iron on board.
  7. We had FTTF booked for our Alaska August cruise and just got this email from Carnival
  8. just received this from Carnival.
  9. We have cruised mostly Princess but also a couple Norwegian, Royal Caribbean and Carnival. We really like dressing casual (shorts, jeans and t shirts) when on the ship. What do people normally wear on Holland? Does it tend to be dressier? Do they have formal nights like on other cruise lines or is dinner always a formal event?
  10. Princess canceled our August 21 California Coastal cruise and we are still waiting for our refund of deposit.
  11. I am deciding between 2 different excursions. One goes to Carambola Beach and the other goes to Cockleshell Beach. Which one is prettier?
  12. Have done one on Princess in the reverse order and loved it. Started in Venice, Italy with an overnight onboard the ship then we hit several ports in Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal. Very port intensive the first 9 days, then several relaxing days at sea before getting off ship in Fort Lauderdale. We sailed in October and had perfect weather the whole time. We also gained an extra hour most days at sea so that was nice.
  13. Thank you Pam for this detailed response.
  14. Thanks everyone for your responses.
  15. Does anyone know if Princess has a program that lets you spread loved ones ashes at sea? I know carnival does but can’t find out anything on the princess website.
  16. for Vaccinated cruisers, the last line states this: You do NOT need to stay home and self-quarantine after cruise travel.
  17. is it possible to carry on a 12 pack of canned soda instead of checking it with the porters? I’m afraid if I check it, it will possibly get busted.
  18. Do you know what they are planning to do to her?
  19. I’m with you on this. We are not smokers and hate having our balcony filled with smoke. We also booked an aft balcony for our August Alaska cruise and hope the smoking area on deck 3 is not near us (We are on deck 4).
  20. We were on the August 21 Ruby and it was cancelled.
  21. Just received our email from Princess cancelling our 21 August California Coastal cruise. Bummed but ready to plan alternative vacation for this year.
  22. Thanks for that info. Hubby has never been to Catalina and thought it would be nice.
  23. Makes me sad. Our August 21 California Coastal is part of this group. It was one of the last cruises that I could find going to Catalina Island. We are also booked on a December cruise and hopefully the CDC will ease up on some of the restrictions by then.
