  1. I agree. The China Visa is only $140 for American and $90 for non-American. It is good for 10 years; multiple entries. If your passport expired before your visa expires, you don't need to get a new visa. Just bring along the old passport that has the unexpired visa.
  2. Thank you for the replies on the Vietnam visa through Princess.
  3. So I need to call Princess now to let them know I will have them do my Vietnam visa, and ask them to add the charges to my booking? Then pay it at final payment time?
  4. I will be doing the Grand Asia cruise next year. Did you need to get your own Vietnam visa or Princess did a landing visa for all passengers for a fee? Thank you.
  5. Can someone please explain what is World Fresh Marketplace? And which Princess ships have that buffet? This year I had the old Horizon Court buffets on the Golden and the Sapphire, and had the Royal Class buffets on the Regal. Next week, I will be going on the Royal to Alaska. The last time I did Royal was in 2015; does the Royal have the WFM buffet now? Thank you.
  6. Two days ago I used Princess' site and booked Air Canada (RT L.A. to Vancouver). After the purchase, I was given Air Canada's booking reference number. So I went to the AC website and entered the reference number. My booking came up, and under "checked baggage" section, it shows "1st bag complimentary". So I printed that page. Yesterday, I went to the AC site again, and now under the "check baggage" section, it shows $30 for the 1st bag. Wonder why it changed from "complimentary" to "$30"? If I show the page that I printed 2 days ago showing "complimentary", will I not need to pay or still need to pay $30?
  7. I didn't know we can request the credit so far ahead of the cruise departure date. According to the fine print of the request form (I got the link to that form from a CC post; couldn't remember when was the post), it says "Brokerage statement should be dated no earlier than 3 months prior to cruise departure date". I have 3 cruises booked, one in August 2019 and two in 2020. Because of the statement above, when I sent in my June brokerage statement yesterday, I only sent in the request form for the August 2019 cruise.
  8. What do you need to show to Princess to prove the outside agency charges a lower price? Thank you.
  9. We will be visiting Flam in about 2 weeks, and I have not planned anything yet. Your tour sounds fun. So you bought a boat ride tour that included the ride, and tour of the little village? How frequent there is a bus from the village back to the ship dock? How long was the boat ride? How much was the tour package? Can the boat ride and bus ride be paid with credit card? How often was the boat ride? Thank you.
  10. I have never taken taxi. For restaurant services, in U.S., the tipping is about 18-20% of the total bill. I guess I will just tip the same way as tipping restaurants. Thank you.
  11. Thank you for your response. Is there a fee for the luggage? Normally, how much should we tip the taxi driver?
