  1. When this proposal first came out, Transportation Canada released a statement that regardless, the travel band on a Canadian ports will remain in effect until February 2022. Canada is locking down more, not less. I wouldn’t plan any cruises to/from or through Canada until 2022. But then, I have had 8 cruises cancelled so far, so much for my advise!
  2. On a different ship( forget which one) there was a similar space across from our outside cabin. It was a crew only work space and stairway. No noise, but it was across the hall from us. Crew were regularly pushing carts and such in and out of there.
  3. Europe is slowly opening, but mostly for Europeans only. U.S. travelers are still restricted in most of Europe except Eastern Europe. Britain is still closed to U.S. without 10 day quarantine. We were booked on Enchanted July 3 -24 and I was worried how we were going to get to the ship and then back home. (How to get a 72 hour test before we arrive back in the U.S.). Just transiting through England was iffy. I expected the cancellation, but still disappointed. 9 cruises cancelled so far.
  4. Yes, it happens. I had to call to get my military discount (US Army 62-68). After the third cruise it has been automatic. Just like the military, hang in there.
  5. I believe the metal roof you are talking about is actually a metal balcony railing instead of see-thru glass. The only ones that have a problem when the ship is moving are the foreward facing cabins above the bridge. Even those are really useable unless it’s really windy or the ship is moving fast.
  6. We have used Princess EZair when the price was right, but on this trip we are using points for the international parts of the flights. So, the question is do we fly from London to Rome, or Athens, or nowhere? Already had to cancel flights 7 times since last March. Anyone need a flight credit from Copenhagen to Prague?
  7. We are booked on the July 3, 10 and 21st dates. Boarding passes are available to print for 3rd and 10th sailings. Our ocean ready is active for all three cruises. I still have to book a Rome hotel and return flight yet. Holding off as long as I can. Rebooking a cruise is easy, but changing/cancelling European flights can be a nightmare. Like everyone else, just waiting on Princess.
  8. We always book B2B. For instance, we have a trip this summer booked B2B2B.. we get a $100 onboard credit for each cruise = $300. If we booked as one 21 day cruise we would have got $100. Plus, credit for 3 cruises, not one. Of course, the days credit is still 21, but it works out. Also, B2B2B was a little cheaper too. For medallion purposes, they list it as one cruise.
  9. I see what you are all discussing, but I just ordered our Ocean Medallions for the July3,2021 cruise and they are showing departure from Civitavecchia. It’s getting close to have to rearrange European air which is quite unsettled now.
  10. I can’t speak for everyone, but I miss Jan. She had her critics, but she always seemed to try and keep us informed. Since she was promoted upstairs, information about Princess is all but non existent. Seems like every cruise line exec has been updating their cruising community, but there has been hardly anything from Princess.
  11. I rechecked, the Civitavecchia schedule was current as of today. I also checked several schedules for Athens. No Enchanted Princess listed at Athens in July, 2021. I just had a Viking cruise for July cancelled 2 days ago. I am getting tired of all this rescheduling, especially the air, which in Europe is in a constant state of flux. As for Rome, We have been there many times and robbed twice. Not really anxious to return, but we just want to sail. Here’s hoping! The CDC has made sailing from the US impossible. Their aim is health safety. Just like the FAA, the way to make flying totally safe i
  12. I just checked the port schedule for Civitavecchia this morning. 4/9/2021. It shows Enchanted Princess scheduled in port on July 3, 10, and 17, 2021. Where is the information that it’s been switched to Athens?. We are booked on all three of these cruises. Rome is not my favorite port because it’s so difficult to get to the port. I would prefer Athens, but it does not look like this is true.
  13. Of more concern is not the ship sailing, but will we be able to get to where it sails from. Most European countries have banned US travelers to the end of June at least. Then there is the CDC controlling departures.
  14. Hong Kong used to be inexpensive, but not anymore. With the cost of shipping be sure to compare prices. I used to always get my glasses in HK, but here is cheaper now. But you can still get the really thin lens there that are not available here because of safety regs.
  15. I agree that testing will never be 100%, but it’s the best we have at present. Just like everything else in our life at present, you either adapt to the new situation or just stay home until it’s over. It is what it is. If you don’t like masks, or “bubble” excursions or what ever, then just stay home until it is over. one note in this announcement that no one has commented on: Tor said Viking hopes to start cruising in April. Not said, but probably in Europe. We have cruise on Viking Jupiter in July, so I hope he is right.
