  1. I did not notice any outlets below the bedstands. David
  2. Princess cruises has been hit the hardest with the most damaging of national and international news broadcasts. It doesn't surprise me at all that they may have the weakest reservations this fall. I have not even browsed any Princess cruises, but I have many other lines departing from US ports. David
  3. We are writing to share the news with you that Amsterdam, Maasdam, Rotterdam, and Veendam have been sold and will be leaving our fleet in the coming weeks.
  4. I learned of my 3rd cancelled Carnival cruise this morning. Same luck that I have in a casino. David
  5. I read these HAL posts, just about daily. I've worked for 16 years in San Diego, and have been assigned in Miami and FLL, too. On occasion, specific needs have been attended to when I have been able. I have always attempted to answer positively. I report to my immediate supervisor, not to Seattle directly. All of my co-workers are anxiously awaiting a return of cruising. We love what we do and do our very best every day for you....99 percent of us all cruise at least once a year, so we get it. David
  6. I fly to FLL the day before on an early flight with a connection in Houston. If my connection is cancelled later flights out to FLL (2) to MIA (2) and Palm Beach (1) same day. If stuck in IAH early flight to FLL (2) and MIA (2) the next day. So I'm not worried too much. I plan to stay in FLL overnight and take the CCL bus to the POM. David
  7. If you paid the travel agency with a credit card, then you can contact that bank, credit union, etc. David
  8. I received refund for my pre-paid specialty meals today. Cancelation was 4/12. Now only my $198 deposit is left to be returned. David
  9. Your husband will need a passport to cruise if he was born in Mexico and resides in the US. Of course it makes no sense, especially if the ship is sailing to Mexico only. David
  10. There may be exclusions....especially since you have a trip already planned. I would try to get an appointment and see if you qualify. David
  11. You will also need proof of citizenship that neither a drivers license or Residency Card provide. A passport is best. David
  12. Thanks for the photo of the chartered flights lined up. The Alaska plane was a last minute addition having been added due to an issue with one of the Swift Air planes. It hasn't been an easy job getting 300-500 crew from the Millennium and Eclipse to Barbados every few days lately. Most of the transfers have resulted in a minimum of 14 hours in transit.....and a few in almost 24 hours. The aircraft fly to Miami to refuel and then the pilots and flight attendants change out. The crew do not get meals onboard. Next time you sail, just remember how dedicated these crew are, and what they have to endure whether it be 5 weeks stuck on board or many hours transit to another ship or to get home. No thanks to CDC.....but props to our local CBP and Harbor Police who make it happen.....often until 3 am when the flights were scheduled before 9 pm. David
  13. As to the OP, I sailed on the Victory in January. Much had already been done, especially to my balcony room. The large screen TV had been installed as well as a motion detector activated nightlight by the restroom.....very helpful at night. The cabin door had been altered with a louvered screen at the bottom......not great for sounds in the hallway, but new. Other than stuff you wouldn't notice like scrubbers or a new hull scraping....I would sail again any time on her. The showroom put on fantastic shows....the newer Breeze, Dream, Vista, Horizon, and Panorama do not have this venue. David
  14. I was supposed to be boarding the Carnival Panorama today. David
  15. My refund just posted. My cruise was to leave tomorrow May 16th. It was canceled in early April. David
