  1. Thanks for clarifying that. Since I don’t have any canceled cruises I didn’t think of that. If I had a large amount of credit that I could use I might consider that especially if I would get it back if my cruise was canceled. Thanks again! Tom😀
  2. Here’s what the Princess Web site says about FCC. Future Cruise Credits Any available Cruise Credits can be applied to your next Princess booking. The credits are used against the cruise fare paid with Princess. It’s only used for a deposit on a new booking. I don’t know how you could use since you already have a booking. How were you planning to do that? What did you use for your deposit for your new booking? I’m planning to book a cruise on July 7 & will use one of my FCC for my deposit. I’m not aware that I can use it for anything else other than a booking for a new booking. Tom😀
  3. Here’s what I heard when I asked about our November cruise. Same Ship Different Day Hi Tom. I think you're in a stronger position than most having a "domestic" cruise departing late November from the US. However, given the current circumstances, I wouldn't say any cruise is guaranteed in 2020. Especially given the potential now for a second peak in the states and with uncertainty of how the virus will spread heading into the fall. You then also need to consider whether Hawaii will choose to err on the side of caution. I cannot say anything for sure, but if the cases are steady or drop in the US and Hawaii is keen to open up the cruise/tourism industry, then I expect you will be okay. This is from an officer on the Coral Princess. Tom😀

  5. Do you know what the 2 large cruise ships are anchored in Oakland? I saw the Regent Seven Cruise ship but there were 2 large cruise ships near the West Oakland BART station. Thanks! Tom😀
  6. Like some people I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I’m booked on the Ruby for November 23, 2020 to Hawaii. It will be my first Medallion Cruise so I’m looking forward to this. Tom😀
  7. Here’s a web site that shows when the various cruise lines might sail.....https://www.cruise-international.com/dates-cruise-lines-sailing-again/?utm_source=The Chelsea Magazine Company Ltd&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=11568733_Cruise newsletter June 2020 Of course everything is subject to change at least we have an idea including Princess. Tom😀
  8. The FCC, Future Cruise Certificate, can be applied by your travel agent. Mine does this all the time. Tom😀
  9. Thanks! I like your idea of leaving it out before you go to dinner. I’ll try that on my next cruise. Tom😀
  10. Curious .....I’m assuming that most of us have booked a cruise long before we knew who the CD or Assistant CD would be & possibility got a good price or perks. If after you have made a booking would or have you cancelled your cruise because of who these people are? I had a cruise on the Majestic from Sydney to Hong Kong which was a repositioning cruise which wasn’t repeated. Tom🤔
  11. I know someone from the entertainment staff on Princess & I’ll ask if they have heard from Princess anything. I’ll post whatever I hear. Tom😀
  12. Suggestion is to check your Boarding Pass prior to your cruise to see what it says so if there is a mistake hopefully a simple phone call can straighten things out. Tom😀
  13. I travel mainly with Princess Cruise Line. Are there advantages to purchase insurance elsewhere? Do other policies offer things that my Princess policy doesn’t? Tom😀
  14. Since it was built for the Chinese Market there is an agency that charters the ship thus no cruises through Princess. I believe this has been done before.
  15. Any Chef’s dinner is #1 in my book & well worth the price. Here’s the Chef’s dinner last year on the Majestic Princess just for our Cruise Critic Group. Tom😀
  16. Curious ...Dose anyone base the cruise decision based on who the CD or ED is? Tom🤔
  17. Thank you very much. Yes we’ll all have to wait & see what the new procedures are. Temp taken for sure. With the medallion in what order do they board people? Is it by the level you at with Princess? Thanks again! Tom😀
  18. Thanks! Did you ever have to show your passport? Tom😀
  19. Once I’ve loaded all of the required information on the “Ocean Ready App” & have my Medallion do I still have to go to the check-in desk at the pier or can I go onboard once they start boarding? Anyone had any problems using the Medallion & if so what did you do? Thanks! Tom😀
  20. Thanks! Our cruise is from November 23 - December 8, 2020 on the Ruby from San Francisco. I'm hoping that their will be people that have done independent tours with recommendations of different tour venders. I’m wanting to organize a group, to keep the costs down, with my CC group. Thanks to any recommendations from everyone. Another option, which I’ve done before, is to meet as a group & decide what we want to do & just walk off the ship & bargain with venders for a tour. Thanks again! Tom😀
  21. Thank you very much. Much appreciated! Tom😀
