  1. It must have been a glitch. Sorry. Attempted to do a mock Mexico booking for Nov. 2020 as a comparison to November 2021, but it wouldn't take after several attempts. Then I went back to the Plan a Cruise page and saw the calendar blank for October and November.
  2. Just checked the HAL website and there are no cruises until December 2020.
  3. Just cancelled our March 18, 2020 11-night Partial Panama Canal Cruise on the Zuiderdam. We are extremely concerned about coronavirus and are elderly. It's just too much to have to fly from Calif. to DFW to Fort Lauderdale with a 3 hr. layover in DFW in both directions. Plus a pre-night hotel stay and then taking our chances on a cruise ship and shore excursions. We are most afraid of getting stuck in a quarantine or being taken to a hospital in one of the ports if we did test positive. But also, we wouldn't be able to enjoy the cruise wondering what's going on and constantly wanting to watch the news to stay informed and looking around everything someone coughed. It was worth the cancellation fee for piece of mind. This was to be a cerebration of a special wedding anniversary and DH's birthday. This is the 3rd time we've had to cancel this cruise and figured this would be the charm rather than a curse for us. Going to wait it out and see about booking something in 2021 or just wait until the Ryndam's Caribbean schedule. We're going to pass on this particular itinerary thinking it just wasn't meant to be. We bought the Platinum Insurance when we booked (March 3, 2018) but missed the 100% refund. Our penalty is $1,374.00 with a refund of $7,852. The refund includes airfare, transfers, hotel stays. Our shore excursions will be refunded separably.
  4. Yet another email from Royal Princess that the 12-night Alaska cruise has been delayed yet again. Now 8:00 PM. Boarding is now delayed again from 4:30 to 6:30 PM.
  5. Thank-you voljeep for the information. That would be a substantial "refund." However, had we wanted a less expensive cruise price, we would have booked a less costly stateroom. We're just fussy about such things - type of stateroom and location of it. Would think that response to this offer will be brisk. So Good Luck to anyone taking advantage of it. You might even be able to take another cruise!!! Wow!
  6. Will be sailing on the Royal Princess for the 12-night Alaska cruise out of San Pedro, CA on September 17, 2019. Just got a Move Over Offer email to downgrade our standard mini-suite on the Aloha Deck to an obstructed balcony somewhere on the ship. And they will give us 50% off our cruise fare via On Board Credit. Never heard of such a thing. Why would they do this? First of all, we have no interest in downgrading and second--there's no way we could spend that amount of money on-board. Why would they do this? Thank you.
