  1. In fact, a flatter curve is a longer time the population is affected. The same number of people are apt to get COVID-19, just fewer at any one time overwhelmed the hospitals and health system.
  2. 🤣 (signed) Wife of recently retired family physician
  3. Seattle-ites threw open the gates and welcomed the invaders!
  4. I'm pretty sure any perks ("thrown in", OBC) will evaporate. The amount you paid to upgrade will be totaled with your base rate for FCC and any percentage thereof. I cancelled my 3/21 sailing, Monday, before the phones went useless. For once I am glad we outright bought our beverages and wifi; those amounts plus three SXs have been refunded to our credit card.
  5. Port fees and taxes will be refunded to the payment method used. At least that's always been the case, even for failure to show up at the dock. No port, no port fees.
  6. My Princess RT/LA cruise July 2021 calls in Prince Rupert and not Victoria. So we'll see how friendly it is!
  7. I booked and re-fared all those times with my Certified Vacation Planner. There was a little hiccup at the start because my original assigned CVP went on medical leave just when I needed her, so I think my FIRST booking was through a phone operator but it got switched in time for all the re-farings.
  8. Rolling all my payments from this year's June AK (RT/LA) to next year's in July! And booking the same private excursions... ETA: And one of these years I will finally get my first Princess cruise!
  9. Westerdam was never confirmed, and she is now approaching Hawaii with a full crew none of whom have COVID-19. Enroute they say for Juneau.
  10. Really, I am resigned. Lots of insight into items and details we should have been doing all along (Cloro-wipes, extra meds). Shifting gears if I need to made an urgent trip (two days driving) to help my mom and/or sister (age 81 and 60, and both with compromised lungs). Still chilly there so the same packing list will NOT do!
  11. E-mail your CVP -- mine is working her way through her 100+ emails. Unfortunately for me, she cancelled our cruise after reading my first email -- when I had emailed her AFTER that to say hold off until closer to the new Final Payment!
  12. I was so prepared for our next two cruises -- 28day RT/SD So.Pacific 3/21/20 and 14day RT/LA Alaska 6/13/20. Shore excursions, packing lists... I even have water shoes and break-down beach chairs for Polynesian Islands. We are seasoned travellers but I have NEVER been this prepared! and then to have to cancel.
  13. I re-fared my June 2020 Alaska cruise NINE times before finally applying the Best.Sale.Ever add-ons around Black Friday. Make sure not to accept a non-refundable deposit in any of the promotionals, and you can just keep re-faring until final payment date. You will in general lose the perks if any from previous booking to get fare/perks for the new one. The BSE add-ons were a BIG exception. Sadly I will have to cancel the cruise I put so much effort into following and re-faring.
