  1. The ship started handing out tender tickets at 10 am for the 1 pm arrival. Tender tickets were no longer needed after 3:30. So delaying your exit is a smart move.
  2. We did three weeks on the Royal in October where we had Cabo as an overnight each cruise. They run all night every 30 minutes or so. The Patter did tell us the frequency of tenders/water shuttles would increase again at 7 am and by the looks of it, they were right on. We had five ship tenders and another three local tenders waiting just a bit before 7.
  3. We have yet another Princess “sale” with non refundable deposits starting today. This one is called the End of Year Sale.

  4. It was released to Elites on Oct 28 at 3pm. As an Elite I was never notified this time either. I only knew because of my TA information.
  5. Better to use a FCD if you have it anyway!
  6. Who told you that, and were you doing a new booking? I just looked it up and both the 7 day and the 21 voyages on Nov 17 have the $1 deposits.
  7. Yep. Just log yourself out and log her in.
  8. You now need to submit a specific form for booking transfers. It has to be within 60 days of the direct Princess booking and before final payment. I've attached the form you'll need. Reservation Transfer Request Form.pdf
  9. Seems silly to have to pay for insurance to protect a $1 deposit, but if you're needing it for pre existing coverage you'll have to pay the insurance soon after booking. Might make more sense to wait a bit and book when the early insurance coverage could help with a larger nonrefundable deposit AND the pre existing coverage. The insurance cost will give you a bigger bang for your buck then. Just my opinion, though.
  10. Will this work, time to call my TA. If you put a hold on a cruise today you are issued a booking number, which then would not be a "new" cruise booking tomorrow. That being said, your TA might be able make it work but it may require a bit more extra work on their part as they may have to call in to Princess instead of doing it online. Although we all don't know for sure right now how holds will work with the $1 deposit. We'll find out tomorrow, though! My recommendation would be to pick out your cruise, cabin, and send that info to your TA so he/she can jump on it tomorrow. See above
  11. It’ll be online through the Princess website on Oct 31. Some of us get advanced notice of promos.
  12. You’re welcome.It’s a great time to secure those preferred cabins at no risk. And surprise, the $1 deposit is refundable!
