    Why would anyone want to Move Down.....unless there are real perks for doing so....like a free future cruise?

    some have reported that you get the cruise fare you paid as REFUNDABLE on board credit for the cruise, which if you don't fully use, you get a check back a few weeks or so after the cruise

    I read the article and watched the video of the 2 bugs crawling across the bedding. It did really seem like the couples is seeking publicity, since the terms actor and actress and their movie keep being mentioned. The video was for sure taken in a Princess stateroom because I can see the classic headboard. How can you know if they’re sand fleas or bedbugs? I just find it really hard to believe that Princess wouldn’t have immediately taken action if it was truly bedbugs. They don’t want the bad press! And yes, this was all the way back in November of 2018! Did they really wait a year to file the lawsuit??

    bedbuglawyer was prolly engaged long before the actual suit was filed … negotiating with Princess/Carnival … to no avail … then the suit had to be filed .. maybe because of some SOL

    Post #9?

     

    This came up alot when the Bears group would cruise Princess 800 strong and take over the aft pool. (Emerald Princess). We have been on a couple of cruises that they were on and believe me it does affect the experience when there are that many.

     

    On the Crown in Oct there was a very large wedding party that were able to take over (with the Ships blessing) Club Confusion on several nights as a private party until midnight or so.

    yep, we were on a Halloween cruise when about 400 of that group took the 2nd part of a b2b for them

     

    aft ADULT pool took on a whole new meaning for that few days  … and yes that area and Outriggers are one of our go to places... but not for that cruise unfortunately

    I wonder if the Princess sales system has these cataloged.  You call Princess on the pretense of looking for thematic cruises and if you get a list, then you know the ones to avoid.  Not sure this will work at all however.

    I went thru an online TA for a little 3-4 day cruise out of Tampa - not on Princess - turned out to be a … wait for it … Legends of the Steelers themed cruise - about 1000 out of 2000 cruisers 

     

    lots of private events , some venues  booked, etc … but some of the nicest , most polite people we've ever met on a cruise

     

    anyway, called the TA after and she explained, right or wrong, that they were not allowed to reveal if a cruise had 'groups' on it... something about right to privacy or something … seemed logical at the time

    On hold now waiting to talk to someone! Been holding for 25 minutes. I have no idea if I am next or if I have 100 people in front of me. So I keep holding! 😡 

    I have been having problems with online saying our booking check in is incomplete. I have filled everything out twice. Not sure what the problem is. 

    check the airport emergency location … that was my problem for about a week, but finally corrected online without having to call Princess .. so now all complete in the Personalizer


  6. current wait time was about 30 minutes … now back on hold while 'they' try to fix a fare error from yesterday ...

     

    called about upgrading to a balcony … too much … so kept same inside, but the pricing had changed when I looked at my booking this morning to current pricing ( higher ) than what I had booked at on 12/14

     

    currently at 39 minutes ...

     

    UPDATE - rep has to get in touch with supervisor to manually change back … now at 43 minutes

     

    UPDATE 2.0 - supervisor contacted … working on it … back on hold - now at 59 minutes total

    Pretty simple. Free laundry is for passengers that are elite Captain's Circle loyalty status. If a cabin has no booked elite passengers laundry will have a charge. Passengers in full suites receive free laundry regardless of Captain's Circle status.

    suites, I understand as all passengers have paid the price

     

    'regular cabins' - is it a cabin benefit or only for the eliteist in the cabin … 

     

    or is it a wink..wink abuse of a perk

    I have always thought that when there are few cabins left in a category, the price goes up.  I can't understand though, why someone would want to pay more for an inside than a balcony.  The only reason I would chose an inside would be to save money. 

    that's the "hook" … set an unreasonable high price for an inside , and people think they're getting a DEAL on a balcony … and maybe they are 🤑
