  1. Been looking at the May 1st...Van to Van ....Alaska on the Koningsdam....price not too bad for a balcony and using my FCC to hold it......wonder if I am just dreaming and not a reality??????.....how could these beautiful ports ever handle thousands of cruisers now each and every day of the season......it probably would be a disaster in the works.....easy for us to drive to Van and back home...at least we do not have to fly....that is a bonus anyways.....keep on dreaming as the winter starts to close in....snow in the hills today....
  2. We are looking at the Sun Princess to Alaska on May 25th.....the Sun is suppose to come to the West Coast from Australia and Asia at the beginning of May.......wonder if it will ever show up to do the cruise if Asia and Australia are not letting cruises go.....probably not even worry now but nice to think about a cruise to use the FCC up and easy to get to for us.....
  3. Started a roll call for the May 25th cruise......I must be the only crazy person thinking of going to Alaska on the Sun....lol......
  4. Looked at the Princess cruise book.....the Sun was made in 1995....so is 25 years old.....I wonder how the ship is holding up.....sometimes the older builds are nicer than the new ones.....larger spaces????...ideas???
  5. Yep...better to be on a smaller ship in Alaska....half the pass than the Royal....those ports are so small and crowed if three ships in at the same time....too bad....they should only allow one at a time....but bad for business.....
  6. Put this in another thread....but the Sun Princess is also doing Alaska....my thoughts about this ship Thinking of doing a Sun Princess cruise from Vancouver to Alaska and back....looking at May 25th.....all though there is another one on May 18th....these are all 7 day round trip ones......was looking at the Sun Princess schedule and it arrives from a long 17 day cruise from Asia arriving Vancouver on May 18th....and has really started in Australia on March 23.....my thinking is "if" the virus hits that ship somewhere along the long trip back to North America boy things would be really screwed up!!!!....Alaska sure would not want them to stop and I am sure Vancouver would not want the ship to dock there also......there are too many unknowns for us to decide to go yet. The nice factor for us is we can drive to Vancouver and skip flying and be somewhat safer??.....Also the ships arrives from Tokyo on May 18th and leaves on May 18....what about some delay for a better cleaning after so many days at sea with "who knows what sickness on the ship"......I wonder if my wife and I are too paranoid.....What is your take on this????
  7. Hi Diane.....love cruising and can not stop dreaming about going on one.....but there are too many unknowns for us seniors...lol.......thought that in the spring do a close one to home.....and drive.....our longer ones seem to be out for now....with the latest increase in virus numbers in BC....who knows what will happen....we seem to be going backwards now
  8. Apparently starts in Perth...Fremantle on March 23.....sailing to Singapore....and before that listed as Brisbane to Brisbane cruises...and March 8th Brisbane to Perth.....looks like they are moving the ship to North America.....

  10. God I must of had a premonition about our cruise....cancelled it late last week and ate a $500 cancel fee from Princess....we were April 7 out of LA....Star Princess....glad I did....this is not what I wanted on a quick cruise up the coast to Canada......
  11. Already started....virus in Northern California......what will it be like in a month down in San Pedro waiting to get on the ship......still have 7 days left to cancel and eat only 50% of my cruise cost......looking at the bright side ....we will be comfy in our home not sitting on a ship with sick people and not being able to get off.....what a bummer.....
  12. have to get insurance before last payment date.....not after....
  13. We are on the Star Princess out of LA at the beginning of April.....wow...the good old "USA" could be in a big mess by that time in a month....it does not take long for problems to spiral out of control....not sure if we will go...having second thoughts.... and can cancel soon and not lose a ton of $$$$....for this close at home cruise I did not buy the Platinum insurance for us.....stupid I guess but that was back in November before all the bad new.....live and learn I guess.....
  14. Phoned today....got a agent who seemed to know stuff....great.....she is sending the request for the money over to the accounting dept....there was some boo boo made somewhere with the cancellation.....the $50 each charge was for date change.......do not know why that came up .....someone pushed the wrong key???......code was Dept Date Change FA/AU/YC/WEL....anyways will see if it shows up in my account in a week or so...thanks for replies...
  15. nope...just a regular cruise....and payment.....wonder if someone at MSC will check it out for me.....may phone tomorrow to see what is up with the charge.....
