  1. I was able to do the same a out 4 wks ago for my 11/18 cruise but come embarking no medallion since our cabin didn't have it
  2. Let me rephrase what i said, rcl and Celebrity raise the price before the promo starts to basically not offer it for free vs what you said is totally opposite. At that point, princess is raising prices do to supply and demand
  3. Your best bet would be taking the cruise around the 15th. the 2nd week, the price will just about double
  4. just keep this in mind, sometimes the group pricing isn't any better than regular pricing or a current promo going on
  5. from what I have seen, Princess is pretty good of not raising their prices during these promos. The ones who are notorius for raising prices, or basically making you pay for their "free" items promo are celebrity and RCL
  6. It just depends on how far in advance you book it and which option of EZair you choose, one you pay now and one you pay at final payment. When we did Alaska several years ago, we flew from Orlando to Seattle and used the Ezair and it was cheaper
  7. Have to keep in mind that like someone else stated, the size of the ship makes a huge difference. Not just the capability of the port, but the approach to the port. Some may bridges over the approach that some of the bigger ships can't fit under, or can only fit under certain times of the day. I know in the caribbean, there are only so many ports you can visit in 7 days and at some point, there may not be islands they can reach over the 7 days.. With us talking about accessability, St Thomas is a prime example. All the cruise ships have to time it just right on entry and exit to coincide with the tides or they won't make it out.
  8. and to much hand sanitizers isn't good for you. Best is soap and water
  9. I think by Feb there should be a really good chance since they have the rest of nov, about 3 weeks in Dec and all of Jan
  10. Dining times are going to be decided per ship and based on clientele and itinerary
  11. same here. that is alot to spend. I said that will be hard to spend that much since we have been to the caribbean so many times so excursions are out. My wife said it wouldn't be hard at all.
  12. Not sure what the original one was, but the new one was just booked yesterday. This is the first time I have ever seen a 3rd/4th get SBC. Both my kids are getting like $200 in SBC
  13. We had a 14 day booking on the Caribbean Princess next June and we had $1300 in SBC. We decided to cancel it and then booked a 14 day on new Sky Princess Dec 21-Jan 4. We thought we were going to lose the SBC and figured no big deal. I checked, we still have $1300 in SBC
  14. It shouldn't. yes, there will be some that are getting off and then some getting on. Not sure on the process if you are doing a B2B(2 separate 7 days) vs a 14day(1 booking)
  15. Just depends on how it is booked. either you are booked as 2 separate voyages of 7 days a piece or you booked it as a 14 day and is considered 1 voyage
  16. In cruise standards, booking in July for November is close to sail time. We are in the same boat, but we always book our cruises a year out for thanksgiving and guess roughly for springbreak and book a year out.
  17. as far as I saw, the ability to book 3/4 insides were sold out and it isn't Princess holding them back, they just are gone. Even though a cabin maybe designated as a 3/4, doesn't mean it will have the capability to hold 3/4 at this time in the year for alaska bookings. Alot of it has to do with the other cabins around it and the overall capacity in muster stations or a travel agency has group space taken out for the cruise and they take out so many spots, not specific cabins, for the cruises. Alaska is one of those cruises you have to book 12-18 mos out or cabins will disappear. Alot of people maybe taking insides to save money since there is a big difference in price between a inside and balcony
  18. then I guess that job wasn't done correctly
  19. They may not be putting alot of "extra" money into it since Golden is leaving the fleet in 2020
  20. I think that they are just booked. All the insides are waitlisted and a good amount of the balcony cabins are closed. It sounds like that the ship is booked pretty good
  21. As long as the OBC is refundable, it will get refunded. It might take a couple pf weeks after the cruise since they will do it via check.
  22. Within the past year Princess has done away with pre booking excursions that you don't pay for upfront. I believe they have done this to do away with people grabbing up excursions and then cancelling once onboard to give more people a chance for excursions
  23. Out of the 17 princess cruises we have taken, i have only had 1 female room attendant and that was back around 2001/2002
