  1. I am just trying to unfollow this thread. I wish you all well and thank you all for your kind suggestions! Good luck with your cruises.
  2. You are sweet-thank you for your encouragement and blessings!! Same to you. Barbara
  3. Kathy, I did finally get in touch with TA and they sent form for me to request the cancellation. I think it is all going through now. I am so sorry to be missing this cruise. I certainly hope that all is well on the cruise and everyone returns hope healthy and safe! Maybe this itinerary (14 days RT from LA to Alaska) will happen again and we will be on that ship!! Or maybe we will just sail out of NY, NJ or MA and not have the same worries! Hope this wasn't my last cruise....
  4. Sounds like you have a great sense of humor. Hope they deliver wine or other spirits to your cabin if quarantined-your wife has to put up with you, too! By the way, I am still trying to get my cruise canceled for May. Today is day 78. I did take someone’s suggestion and called Princess directly. After waiting on hold I did speak with lovely rep Marisa who told me only TA can request cancellation. I called TA again and this time I spoke to lovely Mel of Guest Relations and she tells me that she knows my name from my calls and they are working on it. I feel a little better but will feel best when I get conf of cancellation!
  5. Kathy, I will give them another call later. Princess is on West coast so time would allow me to call later in day. I bet they are really scrambling today, too!! Sorry I didn’t get up earlier!! I will take a deep breath, or a glass of wine(LOL), and be patient!!
  6. Ok, everyone. I booked my cruise through a travel agency and when I called them this morning I could only leave a message as all their customer service reps were busy. The only email address I can find is an email to sign up for marketing! Other than driving through three states to get to their office, what does everyone suggest that I do to cancel this cruise?? Could I call princess directly or is it better just to have some patience and wait for the agency to call me back, hopefully today! As you may remember, my last day to cancel penalty free is Sunday! Thanks!
  7. My fear is not being sick but being sick far away from home. Again, I am not afraid of dying of this disease as much as being stuck on the West Coast while I or DH are ill from the virus and cannot get back home. We would take all precautions, like cleaning hands and hard surfaces, but can't control air quality on quarantined ship, etc. I am only hoping that everyone on our scheduled cruise has a safe and fun trip and no one gets ill - but I don't think I will be there to share.
  8. There are so many unknowns, of course, life is full of them! But, sometimes we have to avoid some of these known unknowns!
  9. Our final day to cancel and not lose money is Sunday for a cruise to Alaska. Seeing as we have to fly to LAX from JFK and then be cruising for 14 days and then return to JFK from LAX, we are most likely going to pull the plug on this trip. Tho we are retired, we do not want to spend that much time away from home if one or both of us gets ill. And more importantly, we do not want to be sick on the West Coast when family is on East Coast. We have insurance but still not willing to take the chance. I am feeling very low about this but feel our health and well-being is more important. We have private insurance and cannot cancel for "any reason". My only hope is that this situation will be resolved and we can plan another wonderful cruise!
  10. We left our luggage at Princess Hotel in Fairbanks and took an all day private tour of Fairbanks. Returned to hotel to eat dinner and then took Princess bus to Airport for 10-11 o'clock pm flight. Luggage was at airport when we got there. Transfers were included in land tour pricing. This was June 2018.
  11. Well, thank you very much. You have given me a lot of assistance and I will avail myself of what I can find. We are not worried about Alaskan ports as we are mostly on Princess Excursions(big bus!!) so will not have far to walk. DH will be walking by end of May per his MD but he won't be able to help me and with your suggestions we have a lot to think about!
  12. Hello! Thanks in advance for any help in getting to see Victoria. We will be here from 9-5 which makes for a pretty good day. Can't seem to find too much info as I look on this forum. We are not great walkers - DH will be recovering from broken ankle and I have MS and use a Rollator walker. But - we do want to see this beautiful area and all help is appreciated.
  13. Thank you both for your answers. It certainly sounds like it is for more able-bodied people than us but it also sounds fun - we have 5 sea days and I am worried that DH may get bored. I will ask as Passenber services!
  14. It actually sounds interesting to us - never had a tour! Is it possible to do with a Rollator Walker?
  15. My SIL rented a car to drop off at Newark Airport and had originally wanted an Enterprise as it is located in our town and more convenient. They would also have had to pay a drop off fee at Newark Airport so they rented from someone else. We won't be renting a car but just paying the high shuttle/Uber fees! Won't think of it on the cruise! Part of the cost of going! When you add the car service to JFK ($275 Round trip and then the charges from LAX to San Pedro and back again to LAX) we will be paying almost as much as the RT air fare JFK to LAX! I guess everyone has to make a living!
