  1. I’ve never purchased the Princess insurance but after current events I may consider in the future. Do you have to purchase it at time of booking / initial deposit? Can you add it on later or at final payment? Thanks.
  2. Thank you so much for your advice. This is exactly what I wanted to know. I’ve been reading this thread and have learned a lot. Thank you for all your contributions and sound advice. Have a great day.
  3. Looking for best type of transportation from Heathrow to London Marriott County Hall. We will be arriving around 6:45 a.m. on a Monday in June 2020. Will traffic be horrendous? Is it best to pre-arrange private pickup or take a taxi? Just don’t want to get stuck in traffic and have the taxi meter running. Are taxi fares a set price? Thanks for any advice.
  4. Thanks all. When I had checked the airfare I was using a dummy new booking. When I was logged in and checking my current cruise, the lower fare did not come up, but I'll keep checking.
  5. I just checked our booking for this June for round trip London. We booked with EZAir when they were having a $200 sale. When I checked today the exact same flights were $98 less total for my husband and I. Can I refare with the exact same flights? Is it worth it for $98?
  6. That’s never going to happen. We tend to stay in inside cabins now.
  7. Sorry about that. I meant to say Elite. I tend to get my levels mixed up. I agree it’s not worth spending extra money to get there faster for the little bit of extra perks. We’ll get there when and if it ever happens.
  8. Thanks. Guess I’m a little sensitive today.
  9. I do agree the added benefits of Elite vs. Platinum are probably not worth the cost. I am not looking to flaunt my status. Once on board I look at everyone as an equal -- we all have access to the same amenities as far as food, entertainment, etc. I'm not even sure I'd used the laundry perk. I'm particular about my laundry and probably would prefer to just do my own on a longer cruise. At this point we usually book an inside and are just happy to be on board. We've pretty much booked with Princess, but once we get to Platinum we may branch out with other lines. We have cruised HAL once and were not happy with the food on board that particular ship, but I do like some of their itineraries. Thanks to all for clarifying.
  10. I know I've read on here in the past on how to maximize getting to Elite level quiciker. Did a search and couldn't find. So, here's my question. We have 12 cruise credits, need 3 more. If we would take a 1 day cruise as a single traveler (book 2 rooms) would we each get 2 cruise credits? Thanks.
  11. If you apply a Future Cruise Deposit, do you lose that if it's a non-refundable deposit booking?
  12. Can more than one big ship dock in Whittier? If not, Whittier will be busy more days.
  13. Just disembarked from the Royal in Vancouver on June 8. Thought I would post a copy of the times since it varied somewhat from what someone had posted from 2 weeks earlier. I think we were either the 2nd or 3rd time to disembark in Vancouver so maybe they have worked the kinks out. They seemed to be running a bit early for some of the groups. Disembarkation.pdf
  14. I got an upswell last week for our June 1 Alaska cruise. $79 per person to upgrade from an inside to balcony (category ID to BB). I took it. I initially booked the inside at a fantastic rate. This was the icing on the cake.
