  1. There is a great forum on these boards for insurance questions... https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/499-cruisetravel-insurance/ Better yet, Laura placed an announcement the other day that we are fortunate enough to have a topic currently open with Insure my Trip. It's a perfect place right now to ask questions and get travel insurance answers! https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/2479-qa-with-insuremytrip/
  2. all you ned to do is go to the Princess website and you can see all the updates and all the videos made in regards to this situation
  3. Yes, that is extremely unfortunate. As I have family living in Hong Kong and Singapore, I hit the wall with the Japanese news sites a while ago.
  4. I will get further clarification from what I have been told. I have been told that cutting and pasting and including the url link so that others can read the article and clearly see the source should have no issues. Here is the link in the guidelines to read about copyright here on CC. Note that you can write word for word any announcement from the cruise line as long as you say where it's from. This is a very unique situation right now so we are all still learning. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/guidelines/#guides_compliance You can also email help@cruisecritic.com. That's a great place to go if you ever have any specific questions how guidelines or anything else on the boards. It's a great team of people answering from there. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
  5. Just wanted to make a quick post about the copyright guidelines on here as so many are posting from articles. I know I always have to refresh myself on the guidelines, if it's not in front of me, I forget. As I just turned 58 this month, things are getting worse, old age LOL!! The guideline is copy paste with a link. No full cut and paste please . A Press release from Princess is an exception. There is a link to the guidelines at the top of the page if anyone has any questions or is interested in reading about any other guidelines. Thanks everyone and Happy Valentine's Day!
  6. So sad. thanks for giving us the update. I saw that they get results 5 hours after their test. Can't imagine just how difficult it is.
  7. David Abel was live recently and they didn't see any ambulances at the pier so hopefully it remains that way for the rest of the day. Would be wonderful if the passengers and crew could get through a day without more numbers being added to it.
  8. Thank you for taking the time to give us reports from the ship. It's great to have live reports coming in. It's also wonderful to hear that you feel that you are being so well taken care of. Really hoping this is over soon for all of the passengers and crew and that you remain healthy.
  9. As we don't know what Princess has done, perhaps we can give them the benefit of the doubt. Anything else is pure speculation unless a few cruisers that were on that cruise report something different.
  10. Or possibly these passengers were always going to get ill as it's still in the incubation period. As it's a new virus and not much is known about it, one can always speculate but even those that are in the infectious disease area don't have all the answers. Basically the quarantine is working since it has kept everyone that is so unfortunately stuck on that ship on the ship and not spreading the disease around to either Japan or to wherever it was they were traveling when they were due to disembark.
  11. If you watch Princess' videos you will see the they have said that internet and phone are free for both passengers and crew so there won't be any charges there. I'd be shocked if the crew bar was still open.
  12. It may simply be because he is out and about getting fresh air throughout the day. As someone who has the AC running every day yearly and can have issues with breathing, having humidity control is very important. It's very cold in Japan so they are not spending much time outside. Since they have started leaving the door open at night as well as having a wet towel by the AC vent. I personally have had issues after being stuck in my hotel room at Disney for 3 days due to food poisoning and having their AC blowing on me constantly. Yep, developed a serious cough! Hopefully it is nothing more than that and they are simply suffering a small side effect of the very unfortunate situation they find themselves in.
  13. It would be great if a link is supplied to news articles, things like David Abel and all other passengers involved who are so graciously sharing their stores with us, even all things related to Princess rather than a cut & paste of his reports and articles. (I know run on sentence! LOL) It also makes sure that posts follow the guidelines and ensures that nothing is lost in translation as they say!
