  1. I've lived in Southern Oregon for 24 years and the Rogue River is a big part of our outdoor recreation in this area. It's the only thing that came to mind when I needed to come up with a screen name. I'm not very creative!
  2. Another Dodger fan here. I was born and raised in SoCal and my Mom was born in Brooklyn, so we have a long history of bleeding Dodger blue! I even remember seeing Sandy Kofax pitch in the Coliseum once when I was a kid (guess I can't be coy about my age!). We've been waiting a long time for another World Series Championship, so this is the year!!
  3. We were finally able to see a little blue sky here in southern Oregon. Hopefully the smoke will lift completely by the end of the weekend. On a happier note, we just booked a trans Pacific cruise Sydney to San Francisco for April 2022! We were originally planning on a similar cruise n April of this year on the Golden but, alas, it was not to be. Hopefully we will finally make it this time!
  4. We had a major fire here in southern Oregon yesterday. Many homes and businesses gone in two small nearby towns. We live in Medford and were evacuated last night, but all is well and we are back home. My nephew is a Medford firefighter and has been on the fire line over 24 hours. Hopefully he will get a break soon. We were just feeling good that the fires seemed to pass us by this year and then, bam, here they come. High temps, low humidity and high winds - a dangerous combination!
  5. In our household we are HUGE U of O fans, so exciting to see that your grandson will be one of the quarterbacks we will be watching (if football ever starts again!!). Go Ducks!!
  6. Last week we finally received our $650 tax/port fees refund for an April cruise cancelled in March. We would call both Princess and our TA about once a month just to rattle the cage a little. Not sure if that helped any, but at least we finally received it!
  7. Hi, MamaFej - Welcome to southern Oregon! Hope you are enjoying our wonderful scenery and weather. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous Montana pictures. We just learned yesterday that our April 2021 Sydney to Seattle cruise has been cancelled so we are pretty bummed about that. We had planned a similar trip for this April but, of course, that one got canceled along with all the others. Guess we'll make it to the South Pacific one of these years! Hope the rest of your trip home goes well.
  8. We have two future cruises booked, one for October (which probably won't happen) and one for next April. We had FCCs from a cruise cancelled in April, and without notice Princess automatically applied our credits to the total cost of the two cruises. We weren't planning to apply the credits until final payment was due, but just saw that it happened when we checked our account. I assume Princess will just put it back into our account if they cancel the cruise (sure hope so!).
  9. Thanks so much for posting this information. My sister and I have just started watching and are really enjoying it. We have never sailed on Princess, but are booked for a Sydney to Seattle cruise on the Regal April 2021. It has been great getting to see the ship during the episodes. My sis worked for Royal Caribbean for a couple years so it is bringing back memories for her watching what goes on with the crew behind the scenes, especially the turn-around days which were the busiest for the most of the crew.
  10. We chose Option 1 and was told in a recent call with Princess that we should have our refund for taxes/port fees in a couple weeks (not holding my breath on that!). I have seen several people on CC mention a "holding account" but have not seen this verified by Princess. Did you receive information directly from Princess regarding the holding account?
  11. Hello from beautiful southern Oregon. Great weather today - in the low 90s which is rather hot for this time of year. Oregon has done a great job of keeping the COVID cases/deaths pretty low, so I appreciate the steps the state has taken. The governor will be relaxing some of the restrictions starting May 15, with distancing and masks still a requirement. I'll probably venture out rather slowly since I'm in that "vulnerable" age group, but I sure hope I can get back to Zumba classes soon. Since I haven't been to the hairdresser in almost two months, I decided it was time to finally let the grey hair see the light of day. I understand this is now the thing to do for us baby boomers, so I'll bite the bullet and give it a try!
  12. I checked our Princess account today and saw that the Z cruise had dropped off. Then I noticed that the FCC was listed. It was actually more than we were expecting. Not sure why that is. It may be recalculated at some point, but at least it is finally showing up. However, we haven't yet received a credit for the port fees/taxes or the prepaid gratuities.
  13. Thanks to both of you for your advice. I think the Lido deck would be nice to try since we would use the buffet fairly often as well as the pool. I think we'll leave the room change as is for now. After all, there is still a very long way to go before it actually happens, so Princess may make a few other cabin changes before we get there. For the cruise we were supposed to take this April (so sad to see it canceled), they had bumped us to a mini suite. We were so excited but, alas, it was not to be.
  14. We will be (hopefully!) taking a cruise on the Regal in April 2021, Sydney to Los Angeles. We originally selected a balcony cabin on the Baja deck, but have been "upgraded" to a balcony cabin on the Lido deck (L230), which is mid-forward. I'm wondering how much movement we might feel on the higher deck. While I've never been seasick on the few cruises we've been on, I do occasionally get a little queasy on smaller boats or curvy car rides. Just wondering if we should request that they move us back to Baja deck. Thanks in advance for your advice!
  15. We were scheduled to take our first Princess cruise on The Golden April 8, a trans Pacific trip from Sydney to Los Angeles. We were so looking forward to this special cruise and had been planning for a year. I read lots about the Golden and although she was getting up there in age, so many people expressed their love for the ship. We are so disappointed that we won't have the opportunity to be on one of her last voyages as a Princess ship.
