K D cruiser Posted September 25, 2006 #1 Share Posted September 25, 2006 I just got off the phone with my TA. I tried to book the Nov. 1 Transatlantic on the Grand from Barcelona. I received a really good e-mail offer from Princess who dropped the rates to fill the ship. The cruise is advertised as either a 15 day to Ft. Lauderdale (for disembarkation only) or a 17 day to Galveston. I wanted to purchase air from Princess because I would be travelling alone and didn't want to risk getting stranded someplace and missing the ship. Since I live near Atlanta, I wanted to leave the ship in Ft. Lauderdale. I can't go to Galveston because we already have air booked for a trip leaving that same day from Atlanta. Because I wanted to leave the ship in Ft. Lauderdale, Princess will not book the air for me. They consider it a 17 day cruise to Galveston and all air booked through Princess is to Barcelona and from Galveston. I even offered to let them book a one way and make my own flight arrangements from Ft. Lauderdale to Atlanta, but they would not do that nor would they let me pay for the round trip and not use the return from Galveston. Does any of this make sense to anyone? I ended up not booking the cruise because I didn't want to book my own air. Having been in London for our British Isles cruise in August when all he** broke loose, I know how easily flights can get cancelled, so I wanted the security of booking air through Princess. Thanks for letting me rant. I guess they have their own rules to follow, but it just seems so ridiculous. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
