  1. went once several years back, and have not gone back since. It was pretty bad. Sent the first meal back, and decided to try something else on the menu, it was just as bad.
  2. Loreni, I think I fell into about 12 of those 17 categories. After 50+ cruises on Princess, I plan to never cruise again. For us cruising was FUN, but it doesn't sound like fun in the future, actually frightful. We have already planned 3 other types of vacations for later in 2020 and early 2021, Princess isn't going to get us back.
  3. I read in some other post last week that Princess was going to have a 48 hour sale on Alaska cruises in the 2021 season starting on August 11. Either it didn't happen, or their SALE PRICES are higher than the last time I checked on an Alaska cruise.
  4. I am glad to see a lot of meaningful thought went into all of your plans about cruising in the future. It gives me hope that not all cruisers are willing to RISK IT ALL just to be cruising again.
  5. Even Americans can't get back home after 5 months stuck at sea. https://www.foxnews.com/travel/12000-cruise-ship-workers-stuck-on-boats
  6. Princess should think long and hard about resuming Alaska cruises in 2021. This past week another SMALL cruise tried it in Alaska, and didn't make it. The 63 passengers and crew aboard the UnCruise Adventures' ship were just three days into their Alaskan vacation when they were informed Wednesday the guest had tested positive and they would have to return to port. How could they expect a cruise of thousands to be able to control Covid-19 when a cruise of only 63 couldn't. Alaska is my number one place to cruise, of my more than 50 cruises over 1/3 were to Alaska. But I won't be cruising there in 2021 and maybe never again. My life is worth more than that.
  7. They are still waiting to get OFF of the ships that have Covid-19
  8. The cruise lines are just trying to find out how many people are so addicted to cruising that they are willing to put up with ANYTHING just to cruising again. The NEW WAVE of cruising is NOT a vacation that I would spend my money on, NOR risk with my health.
  9. Absolutely NOT - it is not SAFE being around anybody, anywhere right now - why would you want to get on ship with wall-to-wall people that you don't know anything about and NOT be able to get away from them.
  10. The relative value of unlimited internet on a cruise for me is ZERO. Have been elite for a number of years, and I have never used up the free 150 minutes they give me. I don't go on a cruise to get onto the internet, I go to escape it. I use it strictly to check my emails every day in case someone is seriously trying to get in touch with me.
  11. Princess couldn't offer enough OBC to ever get me to hand over more of my money to them. I noticed that the German cruise ship MEIN SHIFF was the first to sail since the PAUSE started in March. I have always thought that the Germans were smart, but now it appears that I was right. The ship can hold 2900 passengers, but they advertised the cruise limiting it to 60% of capacity (1740 passengers), BUT only 1200 took the bait and went on the cruise. I guess the Germans weren't as 'addicted to cruising' as American are.
  12. Do you really think think there will be Alaska cruises in 2021? Alaska is my favorite destination for cruises, but right now I don't think it is worth my time to plan an Alaska cruise in 2021 (much less the disappointment later after you are all hyped up).
  13. These will simply keep coming. Princess doesn't have a clue what to do, and since it has been 5 months, I don't think they will have a clue in 2021. Their game is: KEEP THE BOOKINGS COMING AND WE WILL KEEP YOUR MONEY AS A FCC
