Princess Seattle to Alaska this Summer...

Some good news: I pointed out the Princess change to 60 days out for final payments to my TA.  He called Princess, and apparently, Princess has been “quietly” updating people about this.  So I now have till mid-April for my final payment!  Thank you to all of you who pointed this change out!


I still think it’s snarky for Princess to even expect a final payment on my Alaska cruise when they’ve decided to halt sales on it to everyone else who doesn’t have a deposit in already.  Suspend final payments till you open this cruise back up, Princess.


Also, CDC foot dragging is making any June 2021 cruises look unlikely.  My luck will be that Princess does solve all of this fracas on Alaska cruises in 2021 (yay!) but then cancels my cruise anyway because the CDC didn’t get their guidelines/permissions for test cruises, etc, out fast enough for regular June cruises to start.  (Booo!) 


At any rate, I will ride out another month and see what happens.

Hang in there and good luck!

Well, finally, Princess cancelled our Alaska cruise (Alaska cruises aren’t happening this year... it’s silly that they keep acting like they are.) and now I don’t have to worry about the final payment drama next month.  Hallelujah!


My TA says Princess will move us to the same cruise next year.  I will see what they offer us, but again, I really can’t plan a cruise in 2022.


Hoping the CDC and cruise industry can salvage the Caribbean (which I predict can’t start till August at the earliest) cruise season for 2021.
