  1. "There were no injuries among the 51 crew who were on board the ship at the time of the incident. From a preliminary assessment, there was no damage to the inside of the ship but only to her side due to the flames and the dense black smoke caused by the fiberglass lifeboats. A full investigation is now in progress."
  2. MSC boards are showing the MSC Lirica on fire in Corfu. Found images in the internet. Looks dramatic.
  3. I hope you are right! The sooner anyone sails from anywhere, the better I will feel about my late November 2021 3-day to Princess Cays.
  4. Sky Princess Patter dining guide from this time last year.
  5. I bought some as low as 9.95 and more on other dips. Glad to see things are looking up.
  6. We picked our seats in first/business with American. It showed in AAdvantage just like a regular booking. We like the second row, starboard.
  7. Just received second refund. Both took less than 5 weeks. Pleasantly surprised. I cancelled one (Discovery won't be delivered in time) and they cancelled one.
  8. 1997 for us. The winner was on the flight back to Dallas with us. She was screaming bloody murder because AA wouldn't allow her to bring the huge trophy on the plane with her. They made her check it as baggage. Flight was delayed while they sorted out her drama.
  9. Mahjong tournament on Celebrity was a pain. Public rooms were used. It's been many years but I always search the date in an attempt to find these surprises. mahjonggcruises.com/
  10. Sail away video just posted on Crew Center. Oops. I see there is a separate thread for the sail away video.
  11. Divinia and Grandiosa and berthed nose to nose. I'll bet the crew on both are excited!
  12. I couldn't find a webcam for Civitavecchia but the Costa Deliziosa has a bridge cam, pointed towards the Divinia and Grandiosa. Second image is from Costa Diadema aft cam, pointed at the Grandiosa.
  13. Similar to this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eI5OnmmWPLQ
  14. Five day cruise from Ft. Lauderdale in 2014 on the Celebrity Constellation in the port side Penthouse (2,530 sq.ft). Pre-cruise night at the Ritz. We didn't go ashore at either port call and rarely left the suite. The butler served every meal in the room. Wonderful decompression getaway. This was back before the pricing went to $3,000 per day for this suite.
  15. The Grand is the only Princess ship I have sailed twice (2003 and 2012). I loved the size. We have our eye on the 4-day out of Southampton on April 30. Probably overly optimistic but fingers-crossed. I'm afraid the Grand and the Pacific may not be around much longer.
  16. I had $535 down on a PH. I can always rebook if things change. I love those short Getaways. We are looking at a 4-day out of Southampton on the Grand. Late April. Maybe things will have settled down by then.
  17. Dates and prices always show up first at the link below. With the Enchanted delayed several months, I'm sure there will be a significant delay on the Discovery, too. Just cancelled my Discovery booking for early December 2021 because I do not expect Princess to take delivery until well into 2022. https://book.princess.com/BookingSystem/goToUrl.do?srcURL=marketing%2Fpc%2Fdestination%2FDestination_Year%2Findex.jsp&fbclid=IwAR1usT9lIGyiRJJbCtTdc5gbgeakqto0rpWvQvF4wQa3Q7qu2hpFXnenD4g
  18. I'm holding on to my Nov 4th booking but I expect it to be cancelled. Probably by the end of July.
  19. Doesn't sound like much progress. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqWzrVAPjeg
