  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. We are on the 3/26/21 Star 28 day Hawaii- Tahiti in a BD balcony, the 1st day in June that S&S was available we rebooked for a total if $1210.00 more per cabin or $21 pp per day. That was 5 weeks ago and earlier today the balcony next door is up to $7300 per person as compared to the $5999 pp when we booked. With all the sea days $21.00 wouldn't cover my coffee and cokes. Charlie
  8. I booked a 28 day Hawaii-Tahiti cruise on the STAR for March 2021 on the first day it opened in May, I got our preferred Caribe balcony and a nice discount from out TA- Very happy. When S&S came out I checked to see what the cost would be to add it, turned out to be $600 a person for 28 days or $1200 total, based on a $70 cost per day from Princess vs a $20.41 pp cost now for the promotion we are very happy! Charlie
  9. We also just booked this cruise over the weekend, never booked a cruise out 22 months, but this has been one we have looked at for the last 5 years, doing it now or never. Been away from Princess for about 15 years, looking forward to a Grand class ship again. Charlie
  10. Thanks, this is what I was looking for. Much appreciated. Charlie
  11. I was told this cruise would be available to book on May 9th, if you can believe Princess Charlie
  12. Looking at a 28 day cruise on the Star from LA to South Pacific and back, for those of you who have done this in the past, any benefit to port or starboard as far as balcony’s go? Charlie
  13. After 30 years on RCCL, Celebrity & Princess looks like we will try HAL. Looking at a 32 day cruise in Feb 2021 to Hawaii & South Pacific. Looking for a good size/ locations Ocean View room. Any suggestions from someone who has been on the Rotterdam, any areas not to try, or great rooms you have had on decks 2 or 3. Thanks Charlie
