  1. After today's news I booked two more Royal cruises in Jan, 2021. So I will have about 7 booked the first half of 2021. Greg
  2. I am booked on the Oct. 10 and two cruises in Dec. I guess we will have to wait until Oct. to find out.
  3. You are right. But I do not see any problem with CCL. My first cruise is in Dec. I am very optimistic that I will have no problems. The stock market and CCL are up today and will continue going up. I have no worries about CCL. Greg
  4. I have done very well, Princess cancelled two cruises and I went back in and booked 7 cruises without spending additional money. I opted for the credit but Princess did very well by me. Greg
  5. Acturally it was supposed to be the Star that went to the Philipines. But the Star has some engine problems so they are taking the South American crews to South America istead.
  6. I got this from my friend on the Royal Princess, who told me that the "Royal Princess was not cruising to Alaska in 2020" makes sense in that Alaska and Canadian ports are closed until at least July and Princess will not be cruising until then or later. Maybe they will continue to cruise to Mexico. But it is very hot in those ports in the Summer months. Greg
  7. I think it would be more cost effective if the Star would also pick up workers from other CCL Corp ships. If I find out more I will pass it along. Greg
  8. I just learned from a crewman on the Royal that the Star Princess will sail back to the Philippines with Philipino workers from other Princess Ships. I believe the Royal and possibly the Grand. It is a good idea especially since it is so hard to book chartered flights. Plus Princess is paying these workers. Greg
  9. No, I have a friend who is on the Royal now. He held his phone up to the screen so I could hear and see the announcement. Princess is still paying all employees according to their contract. However, next month they are reducing the amount by 50%. Contract entertainers are still being paid, but Princess would like to get them home. Greg
  10. If anything, this virus might force people on cruise ships to wash their hands after restroom visits. I am sure all of us have seen pax leave the bathrooms without washing hands.
  11. Jan Swartz just gave a televised announcement to all ships where she informed Princess employees that there would be a hiring freeze, and an elimination of contract jobs. They are also having a problem securing chartered flights to get employees to their home. So they are exploring the idea of using their ships to get employees home. It was a very good talk piped into all the cabin tvs on the ship, Royal Princess. Obviously they have to stem the outflow of money at a time when they are seeing no income (my words) Greg
  12. I like the Emerald better. We booked xmas and NYE on the Emerald, Dec. 20,2020. I have never been in the new locks, saw them being built over the years. I like the Emerald better because I have had some good cruises with that ship. Greg
  13. It will probably be 30 days from cancellation before you see the FCC. But you can still book the cruise you want to. Greg
  14. Option #1. I booked the same cruise, South America that I had to cancel. I have been with Princess for 69 cruises, I do not intend to abandon them now. Things will be back to normal, the stock will go up. Greg
  15. I have 69 cruises on Princess. I will be cruising on Princess as soon as ships start sailing. I am booked on the March South America from Buenos Aires to FLL. Greg
