  1. Try this one. http://www.cruisedeckplans.com/Princess/odell/res76zxu/princessbalconies/index.html
  2. Interesting read; well written and researched article. http://www.yourcruisecoach.com/cruise-travel-and-covid-19-perception-vs-reality/?fbclid=IwAR1UVQIpBRrC9jgqyx_evrkdrFDEUQPjwiq56LpgHqvvCMKEQ_RLE9KWNj0
  3. While I understand and sympathize with your frustration over the length of time it is taking Princess to process refunds I don't think comparing a company with 17 ships to one that has 6 ships and conversely significantly lower numbers of passengers/cancellations to refund is equitable. It's rather like comparing apples and oranges - yes they are both fruit, but not the same at all.
  4. Matt O stayed on Island Princess until 1 April when he was repatriated/allowed to go home to the UK. He is IMHO one of the best, if not THE best, cruise directors I have ever sailed with on Princess. He boarded the Island Princess on 9 January the same day we did for our 58 day Circle SA as an emergency replacement and hit the ground running. Would book a cruise just because he was the CD which in 30 cruises with Princess is not something I ever thought I would say!!
  5. Photo taken in Ilhabela, Brazil on our 58 day Circle South America cruise this year.
  6. Wow, seriously hard to narrow it down to one favorite memory but our "happy" place when on board a Princess ship that has one has to be Vines. To be able to sit quietly at a corner table, sipping our favorite wine(s), meeting new people, sharing tales of our day, and reflecting on how incredibly lucky we are to be there is a memory we look forward to doing over and over again.
  7. Loved it!! Thanks for posting. Cannot wait to get back to cruising with Princess.
  8. Caribe and Dolphin decks on Coral/Island also have the larger balconies. Try the below link for additional info specific to Coral/Island balconies (hope it still works) http://www.cruisedeckplans.com/Princess/odell/res76zxu/princessbalconies/index.html
  9. Zoom in or enlarge the cross portion of the picture to see what it is constructed of - pretty cool.
  10. Stunning street/wall art in Rio (Island Princess, 58 Day Circle South Pacific, Jan - Mar 2020)
  11. Thank you for sharing your travels, life, and family with us. I shall miss reading about your travels/cruising as well as the lovely poems your Mother sent you off with each season. The details you shared about each of the ports you visited are, in my opinion, equivalent or better than anything the commercial market/travel books have provided and have become the first place I look for info when cruising to those ports myself. Wishing you and yours all the best and safe travels no matter what you decide to do.
  12. Totally bummed 😪 to read this evening that Pescado Amarillo has had to stop posting her blog because the internet on-board Majestic Princess is so bad. Hopefully Princess will figure out a fix soon and we can all go back to living vicariously thru her.
  13. No Vines on Coral or her sister ship Island. International Café and Le Patisserie not the same. Le Patisserie is combination liquor bar and coffee bar with maybe a small, very small, selection of pastries in the morning and cookies in the afternoon. IC has sandwiches, salads, soup, pastries, etc. as well as coffee, tea, soda, liquor, etc. No IC on Island Princess yet, but I am ever hopeful Princess will put one at some time in the next drydock.
  14. I personally find the shampoo provided by Princess to be quite harsh and not what I would consider salon quality and seriously doubt it is sulfate free. My hair is permed, but not color treated, and I don't use it. Didn't use it even when my hair wasn't permed as it just left it feeling too rough.
