  1. In general, AMEX cards issued by AMEX (not by banks or credit unions) that are co-branded with hotels or airlines (like Hilton and Delta) do not get the cruise ship offers. One site for adding offers is https://www.americanexpress.com/us/network/shopping.html#travel but I do not see the Princess offer in the list.
  2. Do other Cruise Critic E-mails such as ads still make it to your inbox? I assume the missing notifications do not show up in the Comcast spam folder.
  3. I assume the following airline experience could also happen with cruises: A traveler tested negative for covid-19 before a flight. He had the virus and infected 4 passengers. The study details an outbreak linked to one passenger on an 18-hour flight from Dubai to New Zealand in September. Health officials in New Zealand, a country that has a strict 14-day quarantine in place for arriving travelers, released a case study on Friday that details the risks of traveling on long-haul flights during the coronavirus pandemic — even if negative coronavirus tests are

  5. If you apply it as OBC, it would be refundable OBC, so if you do not use it on the cruise (shore excursions, specialty dining, photos, spa treatments, etc.), it would be refunded to you in check form after the cruise.
  6. FCCs can only be used for the booking itself exclusive of those added on fees, taxes, etc. They cannot be used for any onboard expense, for excursions, etc. The $200 left over can be applied to a different cruise if booked/used by the expiration date of the FCC.
  7. To me, what the USA CDC said was more of a suggestion than a requirement. "If passengers decide to go on cruises, they should get tested three to five days after the trip. Even if they test negative after a trip, cruise ship travelers should stay home for seven days after the trip. "
  8. I had the problem starting about two years ago. Suddenly all notifications from Cruise Critic stopped. They are not in spam. Since advertisements from Cruise Critic still reached me, I knew Cruise Critic still had my correct E-mail address. But it was not just Cruise Critic notifications that stopped reaching my inbox. As od the same date, at least thirty other sites that sent me E-mails no longer did (except for the advertisements which continued to arrive). This included news updates from local TV stations and from newspapers (again, ads continued to arrive OK).
  9. QANTAS has announced that when vaccines become widely available, it will require proof of vaccination for international travel on their planes.
  10. That is part of what the CDC requires cruise lines to arrange before allowing them to sail from/to any USA port.
  11. As already proven, at weddings, funerals, Thanksgiving family dinners (in Canada so far, yet to be in USA).
  12. I have had two cruises cancelled that had FCDs applied (two to each cruise). In each case we received the $100 FCC plus a bonus $100 FCC.
