  1. We just did the same cruise Jan 27-Feb 11. Here is what we did: Hilo: did a private tour which covered Volcanoes Nat’l park, rainbow falls, black sand beach, macadamia nut tour. Ricky’s tours. Google then email him. Honolulu: took a uber to Pear Harbor. Reserve your spot ahead if time under National parks website. When you get there we paid $7.50 for narrated headsets. Very worth it. Then we ubered to Waikiki beach Kauai: private plane tour. Absolutely amazing. Saw Waimea canyon, Napali coast, whales breaching. Best tour we’ve ever done. Wings Over Kauai Maui: whale watching excursion through the ship. Best cruise ever ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
  2. As far as who is getting layed off, here is what I experienced. Just received a call and follow up emails last week from a PVP at Carnival. She introduced herself, and I joined her Carnival sponsored FAcebook page. Yesterday received a FB message from a admin person saying that her group page is closed, and she is no longer with the company. I think she had 14 years experience.
  3. Great information. Thank you! I was hoping the crew would be allowed to leave by now.
  4. Does anyone have a list, or an update on which Princess ships are still at sea or trying to offload passengers? and for ships that have no passengers and are just docked or floating around -do you know if they have released all crew to go back home?
  5. 1) cruise ship docked in Kauai 2) Waimea canyon from plane tour 3) Honolulu
  6. This has hit way too close to home for us. We were on the Grand princess to Hawaii January 27- February 11th. There were so many crew members I talked to that were slated to go home sometime in March. A sweet girl that worked in the Piazzo is pregnant and was heading home in March on maternity leave. They will all have to stay on and be quarantined the way things are looking.
  7. The drink package items don’t show on your bill.Only the billed item showed. But They show on the personalizer under Ocean Concierge, on my cell phone. There’s a drop down box that says Beverage package just above The drop down for room charges. Hope this clears it up
  8. Exactly. It showed the location (Calypso Bar) and the number 1/15, 2/15 etc and the exact time. It also came in handy when this happened. At dinner every night we would leave the table with 2 Corona’s unopened. We like to keep a few in our fridge. One day I noticed I was billed for a drink. Went to guest services, they pulled the receipt, and it was fir a Corona. They went back and could see we had the beverage package and that every night we each ordered 1 Corona on both our cards. Charge was taken off in a flash
  9. We just recently returned from the Grand, who is not converted to 100% Medallain yet. We used the Ocean Concierge app. Besides using it for texting other passengers, it also listed all the day's activities and my beverage package was under a drop down box under my name. It would show every alcoholic drink, the location and time. all specialty coffees, teas, water, milkshakes, soda's did not show up. Only Alcoholic items
  10. I can understand the strict 5pm boarding time. We’re expecting to be in by 2pm. They advised us no flights until after 4pm, expecting to take approx 2 hrs for debarment
  11. On the Grand now. Its been a wild 15-Hawaiian adventure. We had to turn around on our 1st sea day headed back to San Francisco. Medical emergency. Went all the way back to Honolulu. We were granted a reprieve from going to Ensenada for Jones act requirements, but we will still arrive approximately 5 hrs later than original ETA. Heads up for anyone on the Feb 11 10-day mexican cruise
  12. Just finished reading this wonderful review. We too are on the 1/27 sailing and h20skibum just capped off my excitement. This is our 1st time to Hawaii, our 1st time to California and our 1st B2B cruise. Can. Not. Wait
  13. Thanks for the information. Really helps to know what to expect. I was on a cruise at the 60-day mark and couldn’t get online that day to reserve tickets. So we will try for the 24-hour window or just get there super early as you suggested. Thanks again. Happy New Year!
  14. Great info. We too are planning Pearl Harbor on our own. I have read that you must pre-order your tickets ahead of time through the national parks website. Also -is there a fee or are they free? Since I am only 45 days out, they say I must go on-line 24 hrs before we will be in Honolulu. Is this how you secured your 11 am Arizona boat tickets?
  15. I know some don't like lanyards. I still like mine with a little bling 😜
