  1. Is it possible to do a plus fare for one person and the regular fare for the other cabin occupant? My wife doesn't drink at all so no advantage for a plus fare for her.
  2. Whether in a suite or a regular room that had a free specialty dining included as part of our booking, we were able to change it to the specialty restaurant, day and time of our choice even though Princess had pre-scheduled it for us. We just call the dine line when we got to our cabin and it was never a problem.
  3. We visited Bergen as part of a Norwegian Fjords Princess cruise in August 2019. We found it to be a fascinating port. I believe cruise ships dock in a couple of different locations in that city. If I remember correctly there were 3 ships in port that day but the other 2 were smaller than the Sapphire Princess we were on. It was an amazing city and I wish we had much more time to spend there. We were only there from 7:00 am - 2:00 pm.
  4. You could get that cabin or another cabin that Princess thinks is better.
  5. Personally I don't think it will take place but then no one responding here will truly have the right answer.
  6. Absolutely not. I hate wearing them but do so when I have to go into stores. Wearing one for 2/3 of a day could never be fun. Sure people say they wear them for 10 hours a day at work. But when they go home they most likely do not. Wearing a mask anytime one is outside of a cabin would just ruin the cruise experience for me. And being forced to take only ship excursions is also a deal breaker. We'll most likely look at road trips where we won't have so many restrictions. Taking a cruise under these circumstances is certainly a personal choice each person needs to make and I will choose
  7. We once sailed on the Sun Princess in the Caribbean. I saw may things that needed attention or refurbishment. If you want to see something negative you will. Or you can choose like we did to ignore them and have a great cruise. Everyone has their own opinion about what is good and bad on a ship.
  8. Update to the original post. This was a Michael Godard piece on canvas. I contacted Michael Godard Fine Arts and they have agreed to replace the piece. They were very easy to work with.
  9. Quite a few years ago there was a discussion about some of the canvas art pieces cracking. If I remember correctly it was Michael Godard pieces. Has this happened to anyone and if so how did you resolve it? I did a search but nothing turned up. Please no comments about why someone would purchase art on a cruise ship. Thank you in advance.
  10. This cruise in October actually starts in Quebec and ends in Ft. Lauderdale. It sails almost at the end of October and by then the fall colors are pretty much gone.
  11. I guess like everything else in life change takes some time to get used to. However as others have pointed out I find the print in the posts to be a bit small although I can enlarge it on my touch screen monitor. But I also find the print to be a bit dull and wish they would darken it.
  12. And who is supposed to pay for all these Covid tests in advance of departing from home for a cruise? Some will say that if you can afford to cruise you can afford the test. Others will say medical insurance will pay for it. But who pays for the dedical insurance and this "abuse" of insurance will do nothing but cause medical insurance rates to rise. Cruising with the restrictions proposed, particularly wearing a mask, is not the way I want to spend a vacation so even though we have 25+ cruises under our belt we will be foregoing this type of vacation until the restrictions are eliminated.
  13. Several years ago we did the 10 day Mexico cruise out of San Francisco 3 out of 4 years. We live about an hour east of San Francisco so it is very easy for us to get to and from the port. We did it mainly for the cruising experience and not specifically for the ports. We've been to the Mexican ports more times than we can count although we do enjoy each of the visits and usually just wander around the towns and enjoy the local food/beer. Definitely will do it again but not until all the new cruising restrictions are removed.
  14. Hopefully the type of restrictions proposed when cruising resumes will only be temporary, be it 6 months or 1 or 2 years. No way I will cruise again with having to wear a mask onboard or only allowed to get off the ship in a ship-sponsored excursion. We may just be looking at road trips here in the United States and see parts of our own beautiful country.
