  1. Below is a link to the only information I could find on the 3 new Sphere Class ships. https://www.seatrade-cruise.com/shipbuilding-refurb-equipment/fincantieri-cuts-steel-princess-cruises-first-lng-ship
  2. I do not see why you could not? There are no restrictions as to where you are located when taking the self-test.
  3. So happy for you! The squeaky wheel "usually" gets the grease!
  4. We are booked on the same cruise with family, including our 7 yr old granddaughter. A few days ago, our daughter/son-in-law/ 7yr old granddaughter received an upgrade from a regular balcony to a Deluxe Balcony. I think they are still holding out hope that kids 5 to 11 will have the opportunity to be vaccinated in time for this cruise. We sure hope so...🙏
  5. Do a fake booking and it will show you available cabins. But, this is not a "true" representation of all available cabins. It will however give you a good idea as to occupancy.
  6. As far as I know, they have yet to set-up any mobile testing sites off the ship??? And, Carnival Cruise line recently stated that they have given-up on setting them up due to the cost. Maybe Princess will follow suit...
  7. Also a yes, the self-serve laundry rooms are open.
  8. The cancelled Hawaii cruises started on Nov 5th, on the Grand...
  9. Below is from the Princess web site: We strongly recommend all guests take a viral COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen) prior to leaving home to avoid queues and travel disruptions associated with a possible positive test result on the day of embarkation. We understand that it may be difficult for some of our guests to find testing that can provide results within a 2-day turnaround. Accordingly, for guests who did not receive their test results within 2 days prior to their embarkation, we are working to set up mobile testing sites near our embarkation ports to conduct COVID-19 testing the day before, or day of, your cruise departure. The company providing the testing will charge a per-person fee (to be established; please check back on this page). Providers will not accept insurance, but you will be provided a receipt should you wish to submit the cost to your insurance carrier. Please consider this as a back-up alternative should you not be able to make arrangements prior to leaving home. In accordance with CDC protocols, guests who test positive for COVID-19 on embarkation day will be denied boarding, together with their family members and close contacts, may be required to quarantine shoreside, and may be restricted from commercial air travel. If you, your family members, traveling companions or other close contacts are suspected of having COVID-19 and are denied boarding, you will be entitled to a 100% Future Cruise Credit.
  10. These are the replacement cruises for the cancelled Hawaii cruises.
  11. Even though we cruise with the Princess Plus Package, we continue to purchase bottles of wine at dinner. We never leave a cruise with unspent OBC, my wife makes sure of that!
  12. I believe that was stated prior to Hawaii cruises being cancelled thru 2021. We were booked on the Nov 5th voyage on the Grand. Maybe now, they feel that they more time to figure it out. Also, Hawaii could be cancelled beyond 2021. Time will tell...
  13. I think your TA should keep at it and go up higher in the Princess chain of command to have this corrected. I'm sure an email to Jan Swartz and their Customer Service Dept would help also. Good Luck!
