  1. Absolutely anything can be canceled at this point. It’s not in the airlines best interest to promise a flight that may possibly not actually fly. The pandemic is worldwide and there are no guarantees about anything going anywhere at this time. I’d hold off booking anything until there was assurance that it would happen. I’m not at surprised that it’s not business as usual with times and dates for booking atm
  2. I find that the promenade outside deck always has seats available to watch the world go by
  3. We are in the midst of a worldwide PANDEMIC. Who knows what will happen - 100% certainly not Princess Cruise lines or any of their employees. Dude - just sit back and relax.....
  4. This is what I always do. There is a form I have to sign but my TA gets it for me and sends it off to Princess.
  5. I’ve narrowed my cabin choices to D707&709 and M707& 709 on the Sky deck plans it looks like the balconies are much larger on D deck. I'm using them to plan Enchanted Cruise. Has anyone experienced a larger balcony on D701 to D710??
  6. So..... Did I read correctly that if I book Princess Saver fare I can add the Perks package at anytime onto my booking? For $40us per person per day? Thanks for all the intel.
  7. I LOVE that deal. I had an amazing cruise booked for this past fall with that and I think that’s what I’m thinking I’d like to get - just a bit sweeter of a deal. Ok so I’m reading here that if I do current Princess plus and new promo is launched I could just refare and add B.S.E if it’s offered?
  8. I am looking at booking a cruise in April 2022. I want to be able to keep an eye on pricing closer to the date and take advantage of any potential price drops or perk programs that get launched. Would it be best to book under Princess savers fare to potentially not lose any perks if different ones are offered later on? Would it be possible to “upgrade” to the Princess plus later on? I know it’s best guess at this point but I’d love to hear if anyone has experience or suggestions?
  9. Are you sure it was purchased in US dollars? Why did hat happen. Princess always changes my website to CDN. My OB shows in US but pays out in CDN
  10. I was so sorry to have to cancel our stay at Pig-in-the-wall when our Scandinavia cruise was cancelled. It seems so quaint and authentic. We actually were meant to be arriving back home tomorrow...
  11. Renmar is proof that the internet is not all bad 🙂
  12. OP - I could have written the same post. Time will tell....
  13. I got a big glossy corporate email yesterday from Princess advising me that my Sept 19 Scandinavia cruise that they cancelled in May but had been showing in my personalizer was being credited. I only had a $100 deposit and they doubled it as FCC Interestingly I put down $100 CDN and received it back as $100 US with a low exchange rate of $130. so my $100 CDN became a FCC of $260. ( same for my husband) the cruise no no longer shows as booked in my account. Funny enough it still shows as available to book online though! ——————————-
  14. It came as an email directly tp myself and my husband. My TA didn’t get it. She called me on final payment day and I told her the cruise had been cancelled by Princess via email. I forwarded her the info
  15. When they cancelled my Sept 19 Scandinavia cruise they offered us to double our deposit ( 100 each) if we kept it as FCC. We had not got to final payment and we had not paid more than our deposit. We went ahead with it bacuse it was a small amount to gamble in the event they go bankrupt. I would not have gambled with much more. i was waiting for an offer from then rather than cancelling. I would not have paid in full. I don’t gamble that much
  16. I’m reading through this and I’ve yet to see mentioned that in order for cruising to resume from the US, the ships would have to be welcomed by other countries. Not necessarily the case...
  17. I think its another indication of their archaic computer systems. There is no other travel company that I have ever dealt with that still shows available trips ( that AREN’T) cancelled booking still showing as current and take MONTHS for refunds. NONE. I know the cheerleaders here will make excuses, but truly there are none. Its simple to make changes online and show current standings. You all would FREAKout if Walmart didn’t cancel an order and give you a refund the day of.... I have no idea why your give CCL a pass.. My September 19 cruise that was
  18. They cancelled my Sept 19 Scandinavia sailing. I guess that’s that then....
  19. I’m not sure why people defend the actions of the cruise lines - allowing them to get away with this. You can’t book a hotel room or a flight right now BECAUSE THEY DONT KNOW WHEN they will resume. Same thing with the cruise industry but we don’t hold them to the same standards
  20. I’m booked on a Baltic Cruise out of Southampton Sept 19 on another line - final payment is In June. I’ve only put down a refundable deposit so I can cancel easily but...... Even if it does sail - I can’t imagine the atmosphere being carefree and fun. There will be extra screening at airports and angst about overseas travel. There will likely be some restrictions on port activities, on-board it might well be very tense in the dining and public areas. Wearing masks, washing hands, staying distant, worrying about getting sick. Not a great vacation..... and what if I have to
  21. We did an awesome road trip from Sydney to Port Douglas. Incredible. Simply incredible
  22. I think that’s terrible and very bad customer service. Fix your website if it’s auto populating upgrades. It’s very bad form to tease your paying customers with offers that will never materialize. Embarrassing for them really. They need to get into their website and take out the cruises that will not be available. Now. Or at the very least there should be a banner informing of the likelihood that they will be cancelled. We put up with a lot from these cruise lines websites. They have lots of staff they could task with sorting it out. Retailers would never offer unavailable merchandise
  23. Folks often advise against 4 people in one room. We have done it on every cruise and never have a problem. My boys are 15 and 17 now. Usually it’s 2 beds coming down from the ceiling - whether it’s an interiotpr, OV or balcony. But once on the Crown it was only one bed from the ceiling and the other was a cot they brought in. They put it in the space in front of the balcony doors. It was the most awkward configuration we ever had. But it was still great
