  1. Clo There are two Marina cruises in September 2021 - Stockholm to Amsterdam 9/8/21 and Amsterdam to Lisbon 9/20/21. I believe that the person being a bit coy is on the latter. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  2. Does anyone know if adjacent Navigator OTS owner suite balconies can be opened by the cabin steward? Thanks for any information!
  3. The FCC may not be used for deposit. As the FCC may not be available for 30 days, should a rebooking final payment be due prior to the FCC availabilty, a travel agent may request an extension of the final payment date in order to apply it against the balance.
  4. I can confirm per Princess that there is NO current plan for the ships impacted by the Canada port closures through July 31. As of this morning, the sailings remain for booking but will clearly be cancelled/revised. Anything further is just supposition on the part of Cruise Critic members.
  5. This applies to your booking: If you booked with a travel agent, they will be able to assist you through the process. For guests that have already cancelled a March 6-May 31, 2020 cruise or cruisetour on or after January 20, 2020, they will automatically receive Future Cruise Credit (FCC) for 100% of cancellation fees; There is no need to call Princess. The FCC will be available within the next 30 days. Mar 9 – Apr 3, 2020 Cancel up to 72 hours before sailing to automatically receive a Future Cruise Credit (FCC) for 100% of cancellation fees
  6. My son's family will be sailing in a Brilliance Grand Suite. I have read that "some suites" have access to the concierge lounge. I am assuming that the GS is included. Am I correct? We are D+ but in an Ocean View cabin on the sailing. I believe I saw something that allowed D+ into the Concierge Club as well. Is that also true? Thanks for any clarification! Maureen
  7. Oh trust me! I gave her my very best high school teacher glare. 😄
  8. We sailed at 10:45pm - later than the captain had initially projected. I was was on the Vancouver segment that was initially delayed due to an oil spill. The passengers on that sailing remained upbeat and friendly despite the inconvenience they experienced with our late arrival. I wish I could say the same of this Alaska bound group. I am choosing to attribute the appalling behavior of passengers to the disappointment of the late boarding - as my only other explanation would be that they are miserable fellow human beings. (Example: young parents with a severely disabled child in a wheelchair waited a very long time to board the elevator as my fellow seniors bolted in front of them. When I finally was able to hold the door open for them to board, another woman grabbed my arm and said “either get on or let the door close”.) I am sincerely looking forward to better attitudes after they all get some rest!
  9. Coral It is so good to hear from you again! It has been a long time since we cruised together. Maureen
  10. Thanks so much for confirming what I thought I was seeing. I’m going to cancel my current WiFi and book onboard. you all were very helpful!
  11. I admit that Princess has stumped me.... Typically, it is best to buy items like WiFi prior to sailing at a discounted cost, therefore I purchased a four device package. But I have now received an email that has me confused. We are Elite members sailing on Royal Princess beginning on September 14 (B2B2B). The email states: Get the best rates on our unlimited MedallionNet packages when you purchase for the full voyage. And save even more when you purchase on Cruise Personalizer before you sail with rates as low as $9.99 per day.* Platinum and Elite guests can use MedallionNet with their Captain’s Circle minutes or, better yet, choose an exclusive embarkation day discount on an unlimited package once on board. Should I cancel my purchases for each leg and re-buy at an even better rate after boarding?? Thanks!!
  12. I have also used Harv & Marv and willl do again in September - but I thought their info now states they don't stop at the glacier anymore? To be honest, we see so many beautiful glaciers on the itinerary, I never felt compelled to see Mendenhall.
  13. Thank you! When I downloaded the Ocean Now app, there was (and still is) the attention note that I need to log in to Medallion WiFi when onboard so I hadn't looked any further. All three itineraries are indeed there. It's not good news that there will only be one medallion since my husband is grumbling that they have taken away his cruise card which he keeps in a collection. Now he's going to grumble even more loudly 😞
  14. We are on a Royal B2B2B in September. We completed Ocean Ready for the first segment, but not sure if it's possible to add the two remaining segments. I searched this thread but was unable to find anything on this issue. Will we just checkin and get the new medallion when they escort us to the desk between the cruises? Thanks!
