  1. I booked a cruise with a refundable deposit for this June. Final payment is due today. Yesterday, I asked my TA to cancel the reservation and he said OK. My reservation is still showing up in my RC Planner though. I can't get hold of TA to make sure it was canceled. If TA doesn't cancel reservation by final payment date, does the reservation just automatically cancel and would my refundable deposit automatically get credited back to my credit card? How about my purchased drink packages, specialty dining etc? Will I get any sort of statement showing that I should have money credited back to my credit card? I'm sure these are easy questions that my TA could answer if I could get in touch with him. Thank you for any help.
  2. Wow....thank you for this whole thread. Super helpful and exactly what I needed. Did you do a Day Pass at West Bay beach, or is that just the name of the whole beach area? Im considering a day pass at resort, but if I can just walk along the beach, is it something that I need?
  3. Thank you Thank you again for all your help !
  4. Wow...thank you for all that info. I really had not even considered that the transfer in Vancouver wasn't useful. This sounds interesting!
  5. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that my TA didn't know as much about Alaska cruising as I thought she did. She seemed knowledgeable enough when I booked it, but when I started digging deeper and wanting more details, I realized that she just knew very surface information. I've learned more on this CC board and realize there are a lot of details that she can't help me with (or I feel uncertain about trusting her information blindly). I wondered why the quote she gave me was $88 for transfers in Anchorage AND Vancouver, when the one way train from Anchorage to Whittier was more than that. Your answer explains that....she must have been quoting for a bus transfer, not a train. I will ask her about it, again. Thank you.
  6. Thank you all for your help. I was hoping to ride a train to whittier from Anchorage, but it seems like it is a bus. I asked my TA about it and she said they won't know which it is until it gets closer to our travel date. So does Princess offer both options?
  7. We are traveling with another couple who MIGHT go on this, so maybe a rental car would be an option if they go. Was it a hassle/expensive to rent just for the day? I like the ease of just having them shuttle us though. I'm so glad you loved the experience. It's so expensive but I think we will regret it if we don't do it.
  8. Thank you! We were hoping to not rent a car, so the shuttle option is a definite plus. Thank you for your info!
  9. Thank you for the info. We have reservations for cruise through a travel agent. So we need to contact Princess directly to purchase the transfer, is that correct?
  10. Thank you.... I have so much to learn.....
  11. Oh gosh! It never occurred to me that there might be a cancellation fee through the TA. I'll definitely check the fine print. Thank you
  12. Can anyone purchase the Princess transfer from Anchorage to Whittier? Or can it only be purchased through Princess?
  13. I saw similar post, but it didn't quite answer my question. I am booked on Star Princess through a local travel agent. I've put down refundable deposit and picked the cabins. I got excited and booked it last week before shopping around for better price/perks. Yesterday I checked with an online agency and they can beat the price by $100 per person. I know the original TA will not be happy about it, but can she release my reservation directly to the online agency? I really want to be able to get the same rooms back that we have but am I at the mercy of when she cancels my reservation so that the rooms open up and new TA grabs it before someone else does?
