  1. I would love to book the Land of the Midnight Sun cruise for June 2021 for my daughter's high school graduation. But the deposit will be over 1K (we need two cabins) so it's hard to justify paying that much right now, so far out. In the past I haven't booked our cruises until a year out. I wish Princess hadn't released the Europe 2021 itineraries so early this year! Too tempting!
  2. Yes it is refundable if they fare it that way on the phone or through a TA. You will either have to pay more (we had to pay $25pp more) or the fare could stay the same for refundable deposit. If you book online, it is nonrefundable deposit. It is clearly stated in the promo terms and in the popup box when doing an online booking. This is the new thing at Princess.
  3. Oh my gosh. They had better fix their "new and improved" shore excursion booking system before I go to book ours. I will go nuts. The payments won't process, and your husband was charged more than you? Princess you are slipping so much. After twenty years I am losing faith.
  4. Oh and I forgot to add, to book shore excursions you can just log into each booking number separately. The cruise personalizers will look the same, just log into one with your info and the other with your daughter's info (name and birthdate). I would not book shore excursions through that TA and you can do it yourself anyway.
  5. Absolutely they can be linked together. My family's two cabins are always linked. Your TA is wrong. Tell them again to do it or else call Princess and they can do it.
  6. Yes I agree! I don't think your TA knows what she is talking about. I would call Princess yourself and ask. If it is possible to refare with this promo (and it is) you can then tell your TA that Princess says yes and to have the TA get it done. I have heard of many TA's who don't know squat and this sounds like one of them. There is nothing in the promo's terms that says for new bookings only.
  7. Ooh Thrak I hope you will post a review after your cruise! 🙂
  8. Great and please update here with the outcome! Would love to know what happens.
  9. Well if you cancel on the cruise itself, they usually credit it back to you as OBC (refundable) on your shipboard account. Works the same way. So instead of crediting back your credit card, if you don't spend the refund as OBC on your cruise you will get a check in the mail a few weeks after your cruise. I just did this on our last cruise (cancelled onboard and got back as a check later).
  10. Exactly! I would be calling Princess on the 17th and asking if I could refare or not. Worth a shot!
  11. Yes Princess will refund your shore excursions right up to before your cruise date. They credit back your credit card within a day or two.
  12. I'm assuming you booked with 3 For Free promo (within the last 11 days since it started on the 4th). If you booked with nonrefundable deposit, I would love to know whether a refare is allowed or not since these NRFD's are a new (and very annoying) thing with Princess. I have a 2020 cruise that I just refared with 3FF but paid a bit more fare to have refundable deposit ($25pp). Does anyone know if she would be able to refare with a nonrefundable deposit?
  13. Since it's part of the 3 for Free promo, they will most likely offer an option to do refundable deposit. Your fare could go up a bit. You would just need to book on the phone (vs. online) and ask for refundable deposit.
  14. Anyone booked on a Spring through Fall 2020 Europe cruise? You could pick up an airfare credit (along with the current 3 for Free promo) during this three day promo coming up. Of course it's nonrefundable deposit, so if interested could ask what the fare would be for refundable deposit. 72 Hour Europe Sale 9/17 – 9/19 When your clients book select Europe cruises from September 17 through September 19, they’ll receive a $200 air credit per person, PLUS FREE gratuities, a FREE stateroom location upgrade and FREE onboard spending money for all guests in a stateroom! 72 Hour Europe Sale Voyage List (PDF) » 72 Hour Europe Sale Voyage List (XLS) » Disclaimer †$200 off Airfare is on select voyages to Europe and per person and based on voyage length.
