  1. When sending clothing out, I hope there's no change to the 'cleaning' option that doesn't use water vs the 'laundry' option that does.
  2. Your credit card may have a low amount of cancellation insurance (different from trip interruption). If a vendor goes bankrupt, your credit card may cover the loss.
  3. I’m also looking for something in common for a clue on how the computer might choose passengers or bookings to upgrade. We haven’t booked EZair yet and haven’t received an upgrade offer either. Anyone else like that?
  4. Those of you who are receiving upgrades, are you also already booked with EZair?
  5. We did RT Southampton around UK last summer on the Crown. No kettles.
  6. I think that the form from RCI is ill-conceived. I don't believe that any doctor can predict susceptibility to COVD19 with 100% accuracy for someone of any age because not enough is yet known about the virus. People under 70 are dying. If the cruise lines want a health form regarding chronic conditions, then every passenger should submit one, and one that's not tied to COVID19, much the same as insurance companies have exclusions for pre-existing conditions that aren't stable. In my opinion, a 40-yr-old with COPD may be at a greater risk for a medical emergency, especially in these coronavirus days but not limited to, than a 70-yr-old with high blood pressure that is controlled by medication, monitored on a regular basis and stable for a long on-going basis. OP, this would describe my DH, and I certainly hope that our cruising days are not over. We'll see if Princess produces a form or if a doctor can write a letter that speaks to chronic unstable conditions.
  7. For sure. Would be nice if the 'pause' gave Princess an opportunity to fix the generator on the Crown Princess, if it can be done somewhere else, before the scheduled dry dock in October.
  8. The 2020 cruise schedule for Halifax was to begin April 11 and finishes Nov 3 with 198 cruises on the list, a main source of income for reasonably small ports. Hopefully, the ban won't need to be extended beyond July 1. The first Princess ship on the schedule is due July 19.
  9. It mentions a "severe" (and chronic) condition. Maybe if your chronic condition is stable, your doctor could issue a "fit to travel" letter.
  10. We've had the pleasure of visiting Copenhagen 10 years ago for a few days and looking for something different to do. Is it possible to visit this museum on a port day, or only feasible if staying in Copenhagen for a couple of days? We're scheduled to visit Tues Sept 22.
  11. People who are cruising soon received an email that included this: "For our guests booked on Crown Princess Mediterranean itineraries, we are finalizing some itinerary changes and a special offer that we will be sharing early next week." Quoted from: https://www.princess.com/news/notices_and_advisories/notices/temporary-cancellation-policy.html So, we'll soon have more information that will help us decide about sailing on the Crown before dry dock in October.
  12. Thank you. Some passengers in the Caribbean reported rough seas and speculated that the downed generator may have affected the function of the stabilizers.
  13. Does anyone know what the actual problem is with the generator? Has it been confirmed if the issue affects the use of the stabilizers? No crystal ball withstanding, I'm wondering what are the real chances Princess will be able to (or decide to) tackle the problem before the scheduled dry dock.
  14. Regarding the eating venues, we don't eat in the buffet. Not foolproof, but eliminates one (possibly main) potential source of infection.
