  1. So, our story... We decided to cancel on March 9th, and were due to sail on March 14th. I opened a file with AON (PVP) on the evening of the 9th. As we had cancelled, I was at work on March 12th when the news came out from Princess; had we not cancelled, we would have been mid-flight to Florida! I received an email from AON on March 14th advising that my claim had been closed because of the decision by Princess to cancel all sailings and that I would fall under that program. Using the link generously shared here on CC, I made our selection for Option #2 for which I received a confirmation email from Princess. Two days ago, my TA called to make sure that we had indeed made a selection. I confirmed and forwarded her both emails for her files. When on the phone later that evening with Princess, she asked about our refund, etc. and was told that they had no record of our request! SIGH. She resubmitted for us which likely means we have to "reset" our counter to when we might see our refund and FCC. I am not feeling happy.
  2. Mine is gone, too. It was there this morning. Will check back tomorrow.
  3. Checked and see my credit. Will have to check DH's account. I also see "Book by 12/31/21 and Sail By 12/31/21. Does anyone know how they calculate the credit? Not complaining because I am thrilled to get it but want to understand.
  4. The email just hit my Inbox as well. Guess we will have to wait and see.
  5. I love this! A well-deserved break for those who take such good care of us when we are on board!
  6. We didn't receive an email as yet and now I am not sure what to do! we cancelled our March 14th cruise on Monday and were told to do our claim through Princess insurance. I completed it that afternoon and it has been assigned since them. Should I fill out the form at the link or just wait it out? I have a feeling that the claim was put on hold given Princess was working on their eventual decision. would appreciate advice.
  7. Exactly. This is why I go to the desk. I have even included my CAD credit card info and they applied it instead to the shipboard account credit card.
  8. Agreed. When the exchange rate was more favorable, we would have some in both currencies so that I could take advantage of the best deal. Now, we buy them in CAD dollars. I go to the Desk to buy them in person with our CAD dollar card as they want to see the card, while my onboard account is connected to our US dollar card. It may take a little time but I would rather that than the conversion with all of the "extra" charges involved in that.
  9. Hi Bob, Thank you for taking time to share your adventures with us! I am sure you and Holli had a wonderful evening with our mutual friends. Safe trip home and hope to sail with you soon! Denise
  10. We purchased it on board last cruise we were one as next time will be our first as Elite! We also bought the Canadian flag for reverse.
  11. Hi Bob! Enjoying following along as we were unable to be with you and our friends on this adventure! Please say hello to Holli and the rest of the gang and have a wonderful evening! denise
  12. I hold ours in my tax free savings account (TFSA) and don't touch them. The dividends get paid there. We are really glad that we learned about and then purchased them not long after the Costa Concordia incident.
  13. We have ordered ours through the Medallion Class App as we got "ocean ready" for our upcoming cruise. We live in Canada so everything should be waiting for us when we check in at the port. We found it faster last year even picking up. By the way, the price through the app is $10.
