  1. We just came off the Royal Princess yesterday after doing three B2Bs. We did have to fill out the new health form, but otherwise things were as they usually are. Passengers doing their thing and crew doing theirs. And yes, we had people with colds onboard. Talking to the crew, some are a bit stressed as they have friends on the Diamond. One thing to note - Princess just this week has given all crew across the fleet access to use WhatsApp without needing to purchase WiFi. They now can message, call, and video chat for free through the app. Kudos to Princess for providing open (and free) communication between crew and their families.
  2. When you use a travel agent that person becomes your Princess contact. She/he will purchase the transfer for you. There are some things you still can contact Princess directly about but the transfer is not one of them.
  3. Princess transfers aren't sold through other parties - it's a Princess transfer so it is purchased through Princess and only runs the days Princess has a ship in port. If you want to book a non-Princess transfer, there are companies who run the same route on ship days. Those you can buy elsewhere.
  4. Sorry to say, but just like when transferring to a TA, transferring to Princess has to occur within 60 days of the booking and before final payment is made.
  5. Yes, avoid the quad inside cabins on the Royal. The upper beds do stick out from the wall quite a bit. Space wise, the twin set up is better for two.
  6. This week’s is a bit different... CORONAVIRUS TRAVEL ADVISORY We're monitoring the situation with the coronavirus that originated in mainland China, and our medical experts are working with global health authorities. As a precaution, anyone who has traveled from or through mainland China, Macau or Hong Kong (including airport transits), or has had contact with a suspected or confirmed case of coronavirus (2019-nCoV) within 14 days of the start of this cruise will not be allowed to board the ship. If this applies to you or your client, please contact us with proof of this travel for a full refund of the amount paid to Princess Cruises. All guests will also be subject to pre- boarding health reporting and enhanced screening at check-in. Due to changing circumstances, it is possible that authorities in the countries on your cruise may change their entry requirements on short notice. Please check all entry requirements prior to your arrival to the ship to ensure you are not impacted. Guest passports will be scanned to verify compliance. False responses on forms will result in immediate debark at the next opportunity, and you may face legal consequences. We may change requirements to safeguard guests and crew.
  7. Does the Star have the on demand tv system or is the old standard few channels?
  8. Yes, they are requiring health forms. As I wrote on my blog this week, we had to fill them out when boarding the Royal Princess on Thursday.
  9. It applies to passengers #3 and #4 by default. If you don't want the kids to have any of it, call Princess (or your TA who will then call Princess) and ask for it to be taken off their booking.
  10. Good point. Yep, BEST2DG is still a valid code.
  11. Ask to have the BEST3 promo code applied to your booking. Then the 3rd and 4th person will pay the $1 fare plus $40 a day for the BSE. You can’t do it yourself online so you’ll need to ask your TA or call Princess.
  12. The Spring on Sale promo has been extended to February 29.
