  1. If flying into LAX or Long Beach airport we get the best prices 2 weeks and earlier also more choice in available flights. If you book an earlier flight and receive a later boarding time do you wait in the auto parking lot or at the airport terminal. It would make sense for PCL to establish a set number of days prior to the cruise (say 21) for people with priority boarding to get their boarding groups and another set date (say 18) for all others. Just my not so humble opinion.😜
  2. Pacific Princess was our favorite ship in the Princess fleet. We only sailed on her for 2 cruises but both bring back fond memories. The first cruise was the 50th anniversary cruise R/T from LA which hit the Mexican Rivera. Was wonderful having the Love Boat cast on board and so many other fabulous friends. Our last cruise was a cruise from Venice to Rome in one of the rear suites. Again so many friends made and such a great time. We will miss her immensely.
  3. What good is it to be an "Elite" princess cruiser if one can not see prices for the 2022 Europe cruises?
  4. First of all, if a vaccine is developed and proves effective then cruise lines will (Should) require customers and crew to provide certification that they have received the vaccine before being allowed to board for a cruise. It would be a higher effective rate and do more to control the virus than mandating that cruisers obtain a "letter" from a doctor saying they are "fit to sail". Secondly, can you provide the scientific source that proves that the virus is mutating? Could it be that the morons that have the virus are not taking precautions such as social distancing and wearing face masks? Could those people with a ***** attitude be the reason for the spike in number of positive cases? I do believe that with more testing there will be a higher positive rate but until there is a vaccine that is proved effective the best bet is social distancing and personal protective equipment. Hope everyone stays healthy and we hope to see you onboard.
  5. Now that the EU has proposed restrictions does the question "Are our cruising days to Europe Over?" become a viable question again?
  6. I Thought that the subject of this thread was more cancellations may be announced soon.
  7. Thrax, I just went on the Princess web site and looked at the sailing for "14 day Morocco Passage" on 6 Dec, 2021. Click on "Stateroom selection" and choose "Interior" it will give you 3 choices, one being "Balcony Obstructed". Follow it to deck 8 and there it is. They are listed at about $200 more PP than the Premium Ocean View cabins
  8. Of course, all of the above information could change if the cruise lines decide to do a deep cleaning between each cruise. I would ask this question again after the cruise lines resume sailing.
  9. On Monday afternoon the Pacific Princess departed San Pedro for Ensenada, Mexico where it remained overnight. Tuesday evening, I noticed that the Pacific Princess had departed Ensenada, Mexico with Hawaii as the destination. Anyone know the purpose of this cruise? As the ship is under a "no sail" order from the CDC could the stop in Mexico be a means of circumventing the do not sail order or is it a normal stop as required by the PVSA? Could this be a corporate holiday for the PCL executives?
  10. Roger 88, It seems to me you missed the point. All of the above posts are referencing OBC received because of owning 100 shares of CCL stock. None mention buying OBC with hard cold cash. I do not feel it is prudent to sent CCL any money from your account until CCL can show that they know what to do with what they have already received from us.
  11. You probably would get a better response if you posted this as a response to many of the posts dealing with refunds, FCC and or credit cards
  12. In the future go with a different TA, one who will not charge a cancelation fee.
  13. We just booked 2 cruises on Princess for 2021. First one is a 14 day RT from LA to Alaska and the second is a 14 day Quebec to Ft Lauderdale a few months later also in 2021. I plan on waiting a while (Before final payment is due) before I write Princess and ask "We are both over 70 and I have had type II diabetes for over 25 Years and my Blood sugar is normally about 101. Will you allow us to cruise?" I will ask for a written reply. Maybe by then PCL will be able to establish a consistent policy.
  14. it seems obvious to me that because PCL was so generous with FCC's and not having any income to speak of, they are raising the price to eat up the FCC. Remember, you only have 18 months or so to use it or loose it which in Alaska cruise terms means all of 2020 cruisers +2021 Cruisers need to fit into 1 cruise season. Demand will keep prices high.
  15. Have sailed in A508, little noise and little motion. There would be less motion the lower you go on the ship.
  16. Farewell to the Golden Princess. We did a few of the short 3 &4 day cruises in 2013. We were scheduled to do the Rt from Los Angeles to Alaska in a window suite until yesterday. I guess that sadly, we will never know the joys of a window suite.
  17. The "current" incentive on the newly canceled cruises (11 May - 30 June) is 25% FCC in addition to the 100% FCC refund. Notice that most cruises for 2021 are 25% more than this years prices. No incentive.
  18. The ability to read and not comprehend a post is not a requirement to responding as some of the posters have demonstrated. I do not see where anyone has claimed that PCL has required a FTS letter as of today. The possibility that PCL might require a "Fit to Sail" letter before allowing a passenger to board a cruise is very real if the passenger has "an underlying, severe, chronic medical condition" and would only be able to receive a FCC for a cruise that they might never be allowed to take. Who decides what the criteria for denying the right to board and would that be before booking?, after final payment?, or at the dock? We will wait for more and clearer information from PCL before we place any of our hard earned funds into their hands.
  19. Well, Princess did make an announcement. They are suspending cruises thru the end of June. Great compensation for the canceled cruises. PCL is willing to give us back 100% of my cruise fare. We hope this includes insurance, fees and taxes. But they did not address the "FTS" letter so they will not be getting another "loan" from us. We could not chance the other option which included a FCC and a bonus 25% for another cruise as they are keeping us in limbo.
  20. Not unless PCL states that they will NOT require a "Fit to Sail" letter.
  21. This really has gone on long enough. All I am requesting is for Princess to make a statement on weather they will or will not require the FTS letter. It will allow me to make an educated decision on accepting a FCC if they will not be requiring the TFS letter or accepting nothing less than a full cash refund if they will require the FTS letter. I like and want to cruise but I do not wish to donate my funds to PCL if all they can do is provide a FCC and then deny me boarding.
  22. I have diabetes, a recognized result of having been exposed to Agent Orange in the 1968 - 1971 period of my life while serving in S E Asia. It is controlled thru medication (A1C under 6 and Fasting BS average 102). I am also over 70 years old so it is possible that PCL might require a "Fit to Cruise" letter which my doctor will find impossible to sign as the diabetes is a fact and my age will never be less. I am scheduled to sail on a RT cruise from LA to Alaska on 16 May which we have made final payment. If I cancel I will get a FCC which I might never be able to use. Only if PCL cancels will I (fingers crossed) be able to get my funds refunded. So, the only thing I can do is wait and hope PCL gets off the pot and announces that the cruise is canceled. At this point in time I can not see us booking another cruise with Princess. If there are other options, I surly would like to hear them.
  23. 2 hours ago, skynight said: On the Enchanted these are the most forward cabins on decks 9 through 12. It is a large 550 sq ft (Including balcony) 2 section cabin. The balcony may be breezy while underway because of it's location and the slight wrap around to the bow. You have full suite benefits which are shown in the pdf below. These cabins will be quite a walk to certain public sections of the ship. You can see the layout on the deck plans on the Princess web site. https://www.princess.com/downloads/pdf/ships/PrincessSuite_eFlyer.pdf We booked a Penthouse Suite - S4 - on the Enchanted. Does this type of suite qualify for these amenities? I'm not sure what a Premium suite is. You deserve it and you will get them all if available.
