Is anybody else inbox being inundated with offers from princess? I know they need business but really. It seems like every other day I get a flyer from them also.
With the price of paper and mail what gives?

I received 3 flyers from them yesterday. They are trying to sell inside cabins on one flyer. Also doing Europe cruises too. I don't mind getting them just wish I'd find a "real" bargain somewhere

Yes, Princess flyers in the mail seem to have increased lately - but they have a long ways to go if they want to pass Grand Citcle Travel in the mail department.

We've been getting lots of flyers, but none of them have been for a bargain.

Looks like they don't target us Elite Members - guess they know they get all of our money anyway. We have received one or two flyers in the past month and no e-mails.

I get them for Princess and Hal and I like seeing who's sailing where and at what price. My next cruise is on Princess so I like the updates from them.

Haven't been getting anything from Princess, but just about every day we have been getting emails from RCCL.

Consider yourself the lucky exception. Not only do I get constant sneaker mail and endless emails but so does my hubby and we are both Elite (Princess Captain Circle status - we really are just regular folks in real life! ).

There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy.

We used to get mail and email from Princess all the time. But once we booked our latest cruise... 9 more days!! The advertising slowed down, then stopped. We miss all the deals and stuff they were sending us...

Hopefully we will start to get more, once we are back from our cruise in March...

Did I say only 9 MORE DAYS !!!

yep, it reminds me of some of the catalogs I get weekly, sometimes daily. Yesterday I got 2 from the same company. We wonder why we pay so much for things????

We are getting flyers of one sort or another almost daily from Princess. No real bargains among them, though.
