  1. One (California coastal April 11, 2020) out of or 2 B2B Cruises has the $200 added just an hour ago. The other (Mexican Rivera April 4th) not yet.
  2. What if (praying it does not happen) he comes down with it? I’d rather be in my home country if I am ill. It’s a tough decision either way. I feel for everyone involved.
  3. Yes. It’s all posted on the Princess website: https://www.princess.com/news/notices_and_advisories/notices/coronavirus-update.html
  4. I can’t help but wonder what my “inferred preferences” will be? 🤣
  5. We sail July 4, 2020 in the DOS. Would love to know what changes/updates they might make.
  6. I’m excited to follow along too. We will be sailing in B734 -an aft cabin - next year. Can’t wait to see pics of the ship.
  7. Like others here have stated, we prefer to cruise in suites. Although the Princess suite perks do not compare to the Haven (NCL), I love the larger cabin, bathroom, food options and priority treatment. I have sailed more Princess Cruises than other lines. You can’t beat the beauty of the ships, adult only sections, Sanctuary and prices IMO. Great value.
  8. I just found this photo which shows the Retreat Cabana prices as well as the food menu.
  9. Here are prices for the Sanctuary cabanas from last April and some photos. I’m not sure how much the Retreat ones were. The Retreat cabanas were not really used during our cruise. I think because most sea days were cool there. You reserve both cabanas at the Sanctuary entrance.
  10. Where on the Princess online booking site is the place to mark “No Upgrade?” I cant seem to find it. Oops, just saw someone else ask the same thing! Dumb that it’s not an option online!
  11. Thank you for the B2B info! We are sailing on the Royal in April doing a B2B with the Mexican Rivera followed by the California Coastal cruises. This info is very helpful!
  12. The retreat pool on the Royal is deep not shallow. It’s good for a quick dip to cool off. We sailed her in April last year and could always find a lounger if we needed to. We reserved sanctuary loungers so did not have to worry about it. photos of Royal Retreat Pool area:
