  1. I wouldn't have a problem with that if I knew in advance and the cabin was discounted. Not knowing of a partial obstruction and paying the same as everyone else in that category is totally unfair.
  2. I'd like to know that too Helen as I'm a newbie. Can you have two lots of flex flights in your Cruise Personaliser and cancel one of them before final payment day?
  3. Thanks for the picture which I wish we had seen prior to booking. I did do a Google search for reviews of that particular cabin but nothing came up. Hopefully others will now be forewarned which was why I created the post.
  4. Yes, lucky us. Not something we will forget in a hurry
  5. Just wanting some feedback on a problem we encountered on a cruise we went on a few months ago. Unbeknown to us, there was a maintenance cage parked for a whole 14 days to the right of our balcony which impeded part of our view. We booked the cabin on the advice of the Future Cruise Consultant onboard a prior cruise. The Princess website shows Cabin A747 on the Sapphire as having "outstanding views from a private balcony". This cabin was not discounted in any way yet neighbouring cabins did get outstanding views. We would never have booked this cabin had we known the maintenance cage we going to be by our balcony. We did go down to Reception straight away to complain and was told they would shift us to another cabin if one became available but that didn't transpire. Our TA has forwarded a complaint on behalf of us to Princess but seven weeks later we have still not had a response. So a warning to all cruisers - don't book Cabin A747 on the Sapphire. Apart from that, we did have a wonderful cruise.
  6. Yes, if you look on the Hong Kong Airport website, 40-50% of departures and arrivals have been cancelled.
  7. We're in Hong Kong now on our way home from a cruise and haven't seen any sign of trouble. Protests appear to be only on the weekend and in a very small area easily avoided. It would be a shame not to experience this vibrant city, especially at night.
  8. It was on a 15 day Ocean to Ocean cruise through the Panama Canal. We loved our cruise on the Island Princess.
  9. Anytime Dining Menu October 2018 on Island Princess
