  1. If you are rebooking Canada/New England for 2021 , be advised : The short July 4th sailing r/t from NYC is even shorter , 6 nights and there is only one NYC-Quebec r/t in the Fall .
  2. OTTAWA (REUTERS) - Canada is extending a ban on large cruise ships to Oct. 31 to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, Transport Minister Marc Garneau said on Friday. There goes the 2020 Canada/New England Season.
  3. Sounds like it was your Travel Agency, that you worked for, that did not permit discounting , not the cruise lines like Princess , Cunard and HAL that still permit it to this day.
  4. From another Forum re:Construction/Renovations Delays : https://www.travelweekly.com/Cruise-Travel/Pandemic-foils-expected-big-year-for-ship-deliveries
  5. We are not Formal types but have just earned Diamond level on Cunard(15 sailings ) by just going with the flow when it comes to dress . Dark suit and a sport coat for me (never a tie when optional) nice dress's and pants suits for her . Never feel out of place . Daytime , anything goes .
  6. If you are challenging a Princess charge on your credit card , you may not be able to use that credit card with Princess for the time being . Use a different credit card next time with Princess . That should be alright . It is not personal.
  7. Any changes involving cost must go thru your TA . OP's sailing date is of the 16 Mardi Gras sailings that went to Sold Out overnight a couple months ago. Appears to be a capacity control that may or may not change before sailing. That being the case , OP will not be able to upgrade but hope for a complementary upgrade, at best, if the ship is indeed sailing at reduced capacity .
  8. Smaller ships with, promenade decks, that could visit smaller ports . Ocean views from all over the ship . Midnight buffets. Passenger lists. Drink prices that were actually lower than on land . $3 & $4 photos. You felt at sea (good or bad) . Bon Voyage Parties. Bridge Tours Trap shooting and golf driving off the stern.
  9. As a former TA, booking only cruises for 17+ years , this answer is 100% correct . TA's OBC does not just come from comm. rebate. Also any Agency booking a decent amount with a cruise line ,earns closer to 16% comm .
  10. I enjoy balcony cabins on todays cruise ships but would give it all up to return to the traditionlal cruise experience that was , back in the 70's/80's .
  11. Question for you UK posters? Who the heck was Queen Ann and why would she deserve recognition of name a ship after her ? I like Mauritania myself .
  12. Since Princess’s own reps recommend this procedure , feel free to take advantage . You get the benefits , they get the booking . Win , Win !
  13. General answer for most cruise lines . Forgot to mention rate codes for those that received an promo email .
