  1. Oh my gosh...I feel so bad for Princess and the people aboard the Coral.
  2. Same here. I am waiting for the FCC for the rest of my refund (which should be equivalent to my penalty amount). Since I cancelled before their more generous offer due to the 60 day pause, I’m not sure I’m eligible for the Option 1/Option 2 deal. But I emailed Princess before they announced the 60 day pause and Customer Relations was so nice to call me and told me that I’d be getting my penalty amount back as FCC. She said it would take a few weeks. Like your account, my Captain Circle account still shows $100 FCD applied to my canceled cruise that was to sail on 3/28/2020.
  3. So sad to see her sail away. We were supposed to have been on her in two weeks from today.
  4. Count me in as a yes! Princess has been very fair with their cancellation policy. I can’t wait until this virus is done with so we can cruise again!
  5. Thanks! You’re probably lucky with the timing since you cancelled on the day the policy was put in place. Probably not so lucky for me since I cancelled last week. My TA seems overwhelmed right now and is not able to even get through to Princess. She has so many clients that has questions for Princes. Tough time for the TAs
  6. Thank you for the info! Did you work through a travel agent or directly through Princess? When you cancelled at noon, was the new temporary cancellatIon policy in effect yet?
  7. I’m wondering the same. I will call my TA in a few days at after the dust settles. They will be bombarded. I’m glad Princess did this during this extraordinary time.
  8. Viking is a class act. I wish Princess would do the same. I made the decision last week to cancel our Western Caribbean cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. I had 3rd party insurance so no cancel for any reason. I took the 50% penalty and feel that I made a good decision. Would have been nice if Princess came out with something like Viking did with the temporary cancellation policy,
  9. Western Caribbean out of Ft. Lauderdale. Costa Maya, Belize, Honduras, and Cozumel.
  10. This exactly my concern...being quarantined because of one person. We are scheduled for late March. We would be able to get 50% back if we cancel within the next few days. We would use the refunded amount to do a local vacation...drive 4 hours away.
  11. Yes...my exact concern too. No rights at all. And while it is understandable the Diamond had to quarantine, it does not make it easier on the impact to people lives.
  12. Not worried about colds but am concerned about COVID-19. We made final payment in December for a cruise in March 2020. After seeing what happened on the Diamond concerns me if just one person infected with COVID-19 was on the ship. Our cruise is to the Caribbean and sails out of Ft. Lauderdale so hoping that if anything were to happen like it did on the Diamond, the ship could return to Ft. Lauderdale. If we’re sick, I’d like to be in a US hospital and covered by my health insurance. Definitely would not cruise or take any trips to Asia right now. I wanted to do the Caribbean cruise that leaves from New York to Ft Lauderdale in November...thinking of 2021. I’m glad that’s awhile away. We usually get Princess insurance and this is the first time we purchased insurance through our TA which has higher medical/evacuation coverage. Next time, I am going to buy both Princess insurance for cancel for any reason and the third party insurance for the higher coverage amounts.
  13. OMG! That poor man and probably many others who have a medical condition requiring them to get something regular nutrition, I hope he calls medical now and gets their attention.
  14. How fun! You are an excellent writer! Enjoying your writing style and story telling! Great pics too!
