  1. Either the 4 day or the 1 day but not both. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
  2. Are you doing the Ruby for both cruises? With your itinerary, you do know you can't start on a ship in one US port and end on the same ship in a different US port without a night on land in between the two, right? It's a violation of the PVSA (Passenger Vessel Services Act). You can leave Seattle, switch ships in Vancouver, and then wind up in a different US port, but not stay on the same ship. If it hasn't been flagged by Princess yet, it will be.
  3. Based on bookings I’ve done today, that appears to be correct. New bookings under the sale can combine with casino rates. Add-ones aren’t combining with casino rate.
  4. The add-ons can't be done at Princess.com. You have to go through your TA or give Princess a call.
  5. I knew there was a sad crew member situation as well but didn't have all the details. Thanks for filling in the blanks.
  6. I added info on the medical emergency above but forgot to mention the 19th. Crew and passengers were undergoing the anti-piracy drill.
  7. We had a medical emergency. We were originally supposed to anchor to transfer the patient but were then directed to dock instead. We should be leaving soon. For those who know how to find me, details of the brouhaha we witnessed onshore will be in today’s blog post.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. We have yet another Princess “sale” with non refundable deposits starting today. This one is called the End of Year Sale.

  11. 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.
  12. Better to use a FCD if you have it anyway!
  13. 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.
  14. Yep. Just log yourself out and log her in.
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. It’ll be online through the Princess website on Oct 31. Some of us get advanced notice of promos.
  19. You’re welcome.It’s a great time to secure those preferred cabins at no risk. And surprise, the $1 deposit is refundable!
  20. One Day Only! -- $1 Deposits We’re ending our Great Escapes Sale and 3 For FREE Sale with a big bang! On October 31st, your clients can book with just a $1 deposit plus enjoy the Great Escapes or 3 for FREE offers. This $1 deposit sale is valid for one day only – October 31. Disclaimer †$1 Deposits promotion applies to all new bookings made on October 31, 2019 only for 6- to 49-day voyages sailing on or after Feb 1, 2020. Cruises in which final payment is required are not eligible. Deposits of $1 are refundable. Other select cruises and cruisetours are excluded
  21. There is a refundable deposit option for that cruise. It’s not on the Princess website so you’ll have to call Princess or your TA to get it. It’s a bit more expensive than the non refundable deposit fare.
  22. Typically you'll receive an email confirmation from Princess but you may not get it for a couple days.
