  1. Think of the hundreds of thousands of cruisers ready to put a deposit on the time of the year to the Caribbean. It might help pay for quicker refunds. Charlie
  2. As someone with 6 S class cruises in the last 8 years, 2 in Concierge class I also say just get a Standard hump balcony. Paying the extra isn’t worth the extra $$ for a CC class in my opinion. All 6 of my cruises were hump balcony’s . Charlie
  3. I understand your reasoning and sounds like a great idea. I may try the same thing and see how it goes. Charlie
  4. Daniel, we are on the same cruise and looking to push it to Oct 2021 or March 2022. Last 3 years this 28 day has been released by Princess in mid May. I’m wondering if the virus is causing a delay. My TA still thinks it will release this month. Charlie
  5. I agree with this 100%, after vaccine, I can imagine many, many countries that might refuse a cruise ship docking unless they had proof of all passengers having proof of the vaccine. Even flying to Italy for a vacation will probably require proof of vaccine. Charlie
  6. CNBC just stated that a board member of Carnival Cruises bought 10,000,000 shares of Carnival stock today, maybe it’s time for me to add a few hundred extra 😏 Charlie
  7. Absolutely the best- most inspirational -thread I have ever read on Cruise Critic in the last 20 years. , My hopes for the future and how we should treat of fellow members of mankind have skyrocketed. Thank you all for what you have done here. . Charlie
  8. Does it seem odd that if you booked under sip & sail there are no upgrades on this sale . Why wouldn’t they have a WiFi + grats upgrade for say $20 a day pp? Charlie
  9. Flying in a day early for a 28 day Princess Cruise. Has anyone used the Princess transfer service from LAX to a San Pedro hotel when you’ve flown in a day early? Charlie
  10. We booked a 28 day LA to Tahiti under the Sip & Sail promotion in June. I had our travel agent look at repricing yesterday to see if we could get free grats, price would go up $3050 total over out S&S pricing for a Caribe balcony. Unfortunately no add ons avail under this promotion if you booked under Sip & Sail. Only option was rebook. Not feasible. Charlie
  11. I rebooked our 28 day LA to Hawaii/Tahiti under the Sip n Sail back in June. Our already booked cost went up $600 a person or $21 a person per day, I think that was a nice sale for 28 days. Charlie
  12. When I was on the Grand in 1999, it had the shopping cart Skywalkers which we liked. I believe it was removed from the Grand in 2011 during a major retrofit.
  13. As someone who usually books within a week of a my cruise being released , I wonder how many times I wasn’t able to get my preferred aft cabin or other special larger balcony or great location because it was locked up by a multi booker. Maybe never but I agree that non refundable deposits will become more common, possibly because of this scenario. Charlie
