  1. I am very curious which ones will start up....hope someone on the boards has insider info 😉
  2. I tend to agree with this comment. I moved all my cruises (5) to sail from mid August to mid October 2021. If the entire world is not in a better place by then, there will be no cruising period because they will all be out of business! And yes, if I get the opportunity for a vaccine, done deal and rolling up my sleeve 😁
  3. LOL. Just got the charges on my Princess Visa card today!!! But I knew it was going to happen. This way I get 125%! It was only $2400 final pay so no big deal. I have no cruises planned until Alaska in mid August, then 2 in September. Should be back to somewhat normal by then 🤞🏻
  4. We were on the last of 3 itineraries on the Coral Princess for the 2020 season from Buenos Aires that offered the 4 days scenic cruising in Antarctica Peninsular. We disembarked in Santiago Feb 6th. And if our cruising days had to end (or pause indefinietly) then we went out with one of the BEST cruises we have had ... and that includes 2 world cruises in 2017 and 2019. Cruise 1 and 2 had some difficulties due to weather, which can change on a dime in that part of the world, and affected their itinerary. Third time was perfect and Capt McBain was able to take us to places that the l
  5. Just paid final today on Dec 29 Panama Canal (new locks) and Costa Rica on Crown. 10-day. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 it still is a go!! Even if we stay on the ship I am ready 😁😷😁
  6. On Sept 30 my TA was able to rebook my original May 8 21 day RT Barcelona Med cruise to 3 individual 7 day segments Sept 4-25 of the new Rome itineraries. 2 segments will be repeat of same ports but that is OK for me to be able to see more! I moved it to Sept for 2 reasons....surely cruising will be up and going by September and secondly I had already booked last year a Celebrity 12 day cruise leaving Sept 28 RT Rome for Israel and Med. So it was sort of a win win with only needing to do 1 trip to Rome. And Princess was able to keep my original OV Cabin S103.
  7. No. I was thinking that might be my new trip being the same dates. Nope....Because this morning I got the cruise cancelled Princess email on one I had booked RT Barcelona. So, will wait til Oct 2 and try to book the September dates. I am OK with the ports, I was most excited that I had the new floor to ceiling Ocean View room!!! Hope I can still get it.
  8. I agree with you. Earlier in that virtual thing they hold with Jan once a month she said it would be delivered Sept 30 and stay in Trieste. They still had to bring ship to FLL for the planned TA in April. Obviously they just moved the dates and changed the ports for the entire season. I have that May 8-29 RT Barcelona date. But I do not like the new itinerary ports on the TA to Rome. I want to change to Sept 4-18 then 18-25. Like that combination better. Hope I can get my same cabin. I will have my TA call on Oct 2! Hope that date is for passengers already booked only so they don
  9. Thanks. I found the new itineraries someone posted. My May 8 is now the TA from FLL to Rome and then the 7 day ports after to May 22. They have taken out the Mykinos and Athens and Santorini. Bummer because I was looking forward to going back - last there in 2005. I do not like itinerary for my dates. I want to switch to Sept 4-18 N136A and then Sept 18-25 N138. I am hoping to still board Celebrity Reflection on Sept 28 in Rome to Israel.
  10. We got email today also. But to do the 21 day RT Barcelona May 8-29 we had to book 2 separate voyages. The 14 day Barcelona to Athens and the 7 day Athens back to Barcelona. We got the notice for the 7 day now being RT Rome with new itinerary to be announced no later than Oct 2. Will I get another email about the 14 day?? I am so confused on how they will change route when all the voyages are all Sold Out on Enchanted. Will they consider my total 21 days as one cruise or will I have to end in Athens after 14 days???? I hate waiting to know until Oct 2.
  11. I have determined that my word of the year 2020 is IF! I seem to start every sentence with it no matter the subject. 😂 I have always been a bottom line kind of person...tell me what I need to deal with and I’ll take it from there! A friend told me she was at an event recently that guests were given wrist bands - red, green, yellow. They all naturally wore masks. Red - I am scared of getting the virus so do not approach me. Yellow - I am sort of OK with talking one on one at a safe distance Green - I am fine and want to get on with my life so you can talk to me! A
  12. I mentioned this early on in a post that providers were going to have to offer some sort of coverage in order to start traveling again. Read this article today on Flipboard. https://flip.it/uobuG8
  13. Love the shades of blue colors theme! Hope Princess will have sort of announcement after Sept 30 that will feature real photos vs design boards. Cannot wait to board May 2021. Been a while since I have been on first year of a new Princess ship. I think my last was Royal in 2012. I have one of the new floor to ceiling ocean view cabins directly on the front of the ship 😊
  14. I read an article over the weekend that two-thirds in US will not get COVID vaccine if available in early 2021 which could have an affect the “herd immunity”. Mostly cited felt it was rushed and may not be safe. Which made me look to get recent percentage of people who get the flu shot every year (remember it is not a vaccine). Surprised that in 2019 only 47% got the flu shot. I personally feel the vaccine will be safe - all these 7 or more major named companies working on it have too much at stake to risk hiding unsafe results. I believe H1N1 was produced quickly. (?) I thin
  15. We had just booked this cruise on Star for Alaska August 2021 on 8/25!! Got notice this morning. We were replacing our Cunard because they had cancelled the Elizabeth. I was just looking at Grand deck plans .. Princess said it was refurbished March 2019. However with all the “musical ships” redeployment currently being shuffled, I would not be surprised to see it change again before they start saling again!! Must be a logistic nightmare for determining ships, crew, ports, provisions....
