  1. Has anyone noticed any new itineraries for 2021 on Princess?
  2. We've booked Ephesus Shuttle for tours in Kusadasi and Istanbul when we're there on the Zuiderdam in May 2020.
  3. Does the Coral Princess have a good library? I'm going to be on her for 34 days, including 19 sea days and I'd like to know whether I need to load up my Nook.
  4. My definition of "a fortune" in this case is what Holland America is charging: $359 - $479 per person double occupancy, per night. I agree with you that convenience is worth a lot. So where did you stay, "a short 300' from San Marco"?
  5. We'd like to spend 2 nights in Venice after a cruise before going on to tour parts of Italy. Can someone please recommend a hotel in Venice that's convenient to both the cruise dock and attractions, but won't cost a fortune (like the ones marketed by the cruise line). Also, it would be nice if we didn't have to drag 42 days worth of luggage over a lot of cobblestones and up stairs.
  6. Does anyone have an idea when Princess' 2021 May-Oct (Sydney to Sydney) World Cruise will be posted? For that matter, does anyone know anything about this cruise?
  7. Can you recommend a hotel in Southampton that is within walking distance of the train station and maybe also provides a shuttle to the cruise port?
  8. Do you recall how far in advance of sailing that Princess added night time tours?
  9. We're sailing out of Southampton in October 2020. We'd like to spend a few days in the UK (but not London or the Lake District) , somewhere interesting and pleasant, but also convenient to Southampton. Any suggestions?
  10. Please recommend some Northern Lights tours in either Tromso or Alta. We'll be on the Island Princess in October 2020, and although we have OBC to pay with, so far Princess is not offering anything of interest for the night we're staying overnight in Alta nor for the evening we're in Tromso until 11:59 PM. The independent Lights chasing tours I've found in Tromso all return after midnight (too late). The only night cable car tour I can find (Viator) picks up and drops off in town - the main reason for doing the cable car as a tour is to include transportation, so Viator won't work. The ship is staying overnight in Alta, so any tour that picks up and drops off at the port would be possible. We don't want to have to find our way from town to the cruise port in the middle of the night.
  11. Thank you all for the very helpful information. I contacted my TA and gave him the codes for the refundable deposit rates on the Landmark sale. We two saved $96 and acquired $1,000 of onboard credits. We lost our premier beverage package, but if we had taken full advantage of that, we'd have been seeing the Northern Lights even when they weren't out 🍷
  12. I wonder if TA's can access these hidden refundable fares. My bookings are through a TA, not directly through Princess.
  13. I can't find anything about a refundable option in the online information about the Landmark sale. Where do you see that?
  14. That's good to know. I also have a booking on a Princess cruise that's running a "Landmark" sale. This one is under an $800 deposit. (I ran out of Future Cruise Deposits 😧) Can I refare that one without losing the ability to do it again?
