  1. That’s been my experience & is why I purchase any ship tours as soon as possible & usually have sufficient OBC to make the payment.
  2. Never seen any tour discounts & Princess tours are refundable & need to be paid when reserving using OBC or chargecard.
  3. Based on the information from their current policy, casino rates can be treated differently. There is additional information about the options for canceled cruises. https://www.princess.com/downloads/pdf/plan/impacted-and-cancelled-cruises/pause-extension-mar-31-2021.pdf “Offer does not apply to select casino bookings. Guests on those offers will be contacted with separate details, where applicable”.
  4. Here’s a link to their PDF description of their current policy: https://www.princess.com/downloads/pdf/plan/impacted-and-cancelled-cruises/pause-extension-mar-31-2021.pdf Guests have the option to stick with us by accepting this special higher value Future Cruise Credit (FCC) offer: • 100% value of cruise fare paid as a refundable FCC • Bonus non-refundable FCC equal to 25% of the cruise fare paid* *Bonus FCC minimum of $100 per person (minimum varies by FCC currency: $100USD, $100CAD, $100AUD, £100GBP, €100EUR, ¥10,000) Based on their statements a $10
  5. Princess recently sent emails with 2 promotional videos for Enchanted which is only slightly different than the Sky which we sailed in November 2019. Based on deck plans the Discovery will be similar to the Sky & Enchanted.
  6. An Aussie friend said they’ve been told the Sapphire will be sailing from Melbourne to Australian ports. They’re considering a 14-day Melbourne to Cairns & back.

  8. I’ve had the same experience for our B2B cruises on the Majestic a year from now...all Deluxe Balcony & Minisuites are Guarantees only but Interior & Balcony cabins are available to reserve a cabin. For our B2B cruises on the Discovery in Spring 2022 we were able to book Deluxe Balcony cabins but it’s uncertain if the ship will arrive in LA for those cruises. It’s only a guess but cabins with couches could be more desirable now. We booked Deluxe Balcony cabins for that reason because we might spend more time in our cabin & to get more room service delivery.
  9. In a recent webinar their VP of sales only said they’d be providing updates “soon” but no clue about when. We’re hoping the Discovery gets to it’s LA homeport in Spring 2022 when we have B2B 7-day cruises booked. 🤞🤞
  10. Checking the deck plans E433 is one cabin forward on the opposite side of the ship so the view should be similar & the balcony is slightly larger than E436. E433 from Renmar’s webpage: https://www.cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/ov.php?ship=Sky-Princess&cabins=E401-E445
  11. We had a BW (Balcony Obstructed) cabin E436 on the Royal & there was no obstruction looking outward but the open Promenade deck looking down & lifeboats looking aft. We have DW (Deluxe Balcony Obstructed) cabins booked in E405 on future cruises. Great lower deck midship locations which helps my wife’s motion sickness tendencies. A slightly larger balcony is another benefit & we like the Deluxe cabin’s loveseat couch to have more than a desk chair in the standard balcony cabins. A couple of views from E436:
  12. Here’s the link to the webpage containing more details than the email. I like their new muster procedure...watch the video & visit the location sometime during embarkation. The OceanMedallion will know you’ve been there which meets their requirement. https://www.princess.com/plan/cruise-with-confidence/cruise-health/?cid=brand_email_promo_internal_announcement_info_pf0ms171a_201007_cruisehealth_VSST2IVP4CXAQUDLDNWJVNXN54&eccn=VSST2IVP4CXAQUDLDNWJVNXN54&rrid=175884308B&mi_u=175884308B
  13. Mine was issued on 8/30/11 and expire on 12/31/99. On Monday booked 2 cruises in October 2021 and 2 in March 2022 & all of them have the veteran’s OBC in my confirmations. Thanks for the alert to check & will periodically check to see if they disappear & would simply resubmit my DD-214.
  14. Renee...when booking flights to return to our Maui home 3 months in advance as you know the 3 implementation dates to avoid a 2 week quarantine with a negative test have been missed since 8/1. Now that the 10/1 date has been extended to 10/15, we’ll be quarantined when returning in early October. Hawaii has had 3 months to set up a procedure to avoid being quarantined & there are still unanswered questions about the procedure. I agree with you that based on their actions chances are good that they’ll miss the 10/15 date. Even when cruise ships are allowed to return
