  1. Free play offers and casino rates are two different things. If your email states that you get both, click on the link in the email if there is one. If not, call Princess or your TA.
  2. You are correct, it's a tender. Princess switched over to using the term "water shuttle" about a year ago.
  3. I'm pretty sure that the closer you are, the lower the fare. It's a bigger incentive for folks to book.
  4. For free rooms book directly, as your TA will only make $ from your booking if you upgrade to a better cabin category for a fee.
  5. I forgot to add that HAL makes a much bigger deal of awarding the high level loyalty awards. Medal with big ribbons. It was quite a show. Sadly, this pomp and circumstance can go to one's head. We found many of the loyalist to be standoffish. Not our kind of crowd at all. Over the summer, we received several free/cheap sailing offers from HAL's casino department, and we decided not to book with them. We only require 4 things when sailing: Good food & beverage, good service, friendly fellow passengers, and a launderette.
  6. I was told that the entire entertainment department was shut down early on, including their land-based offices where shows are developed & rehearsed.
  7. Alex was the only person on board that could call me a cheapskate, and not only get away with it, but make me laugh about it.
  8. We received our FCCs yesterday for our cancelled 14 day October 2021 sailing.
  9. We just received the FCCs for our cancelled 14 day sailing that was due to depart Quebec on October 21, 2021.
  10. Dear OP, Never take anyone who makes up their own rules, seriously.
  11. We have sailed with Princess 9 times. In 2019 we decided to give HAL a try. We were on the Nieuw Statendam for what it's 5th sailing. Besides the new ship smell, and the great musicians on board, not much else impressed us. Here's the review I posted back then. https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=647024
  12. Cutting to the chase.... If you can't see your statements online, cal or emaill the bank and request hard copies. You may have to do it in person, and lots of banks are taking appointments for stuff like this. Waiting for someone else to fix this for you will get you nowhere fast. It doesn't matter how long Princess waited to contact you. If you owe them money, you owe them money. If you don't, the sooner you can prove that, the better for everyone involved.
