  1. I also am debating if I should book now or wait a couple months. Our June 2020 was canceled and we (husband, son and his girlfriend) are booked for June 2021. i had paid $2000 for a private boat excursion. A friend and his wife were joining us. I thought it would take forever to get that refunded but the company had it to me in two weeks. We booked the White pass train excursion with Princess - oh my - it took so long to get that money back. I am also waiting for a refund for a canceled tour for a South America cruise that we should be on again. I wish Princess would go bac
  2. We had our June Alaskan cruise canceled. I decided to find a replacement but it is not easy. There are three other ships in Alaska for the summer and they are pretty much booked up. They are not adding another ship so pickings are very slim. We also had a S6 suite and luckily I put another suite on the Grand on hold last night right after my TA called. Their site went down just as I was trying to book another cabin. No suites available this morning. I asked what the upgrade would be and she said she did not think suites received the upgrades. So no perk. The adjoining cabin we
  3. Cruise Wonderland, thanks for the info. This is the third ship or so that they have moved around. I am getting more and more frustreated. i think I found a replacement cruise but when I tried to check on a second cabin for my son, my favorite message came up \. This is the story of my life the past 10 months. I never seem to be able to complete a booking. Then the cabin or cabins I wanted are gone by the next time I can get into the site. We apologize for the inconvenience. Something has gone wrong and we were not able to continue to the next step. For help please cal
  4. I also looked over the available cruises and am not happy. We were suppose to have sailed on the Pacific in June but that did not happen. Then I managed to get a stern suite with our son and gf in the cabin next door. Not many suites available and so far have not found one with a cabin next door available. So frustrating. I will continue to look tonight but afraid I won't have much luck.
  5. My TA just called to say our June cruise in Alaska was canceled.
  6. Some people say they can smell the smoke from Churchhill lounge. We were in one once - my first and only time I did a guarantee at the last minute - never again. The windows are hard to see out of because of the sea salt from the water splashing up on them constantly underway and they never washed them. Almost every night there was a very annoying pounding or banging - the desk told us it was the stabilizers.
  7. I think they should be under a different category. Not a suite. A suite needs a balcony. I think they wold be good cabins if you had a couple toddlers and were worried about them being out on the balcony. We do long cruises and I would go nuts without being able to sit outside with my morning coffee, lunch, cocktail hour, after dinner drink.
  8. Thanks for the info. never knew that. I will wait 45 minutes next time. I always thought people wanted to eat late. But I remember people lining up at 4:15 outside the dining room so I agree - we will probably have a good chance to get late. Thanks Like everyone says, we have a cabin and we are fortunate to be able to cruise so any cabin will be great. Last I looked, club class was $4000 more - just to be able to eat anytime we want. I don't think it is worth it. Take care everyone
  9. shellbeachjim, thanks for replying. Good to know about late seating. We have had three cruises canceled on the Pacific. In 38 cruise, we have never cruised on her. I had an aft owners suite booked on deck 8 for Alaska this past June. I figured it would not be an issue with such a small number of passengers. But, if that was the last one available, I hate to say it, but I would probably grab it. I love the aft. We can sit all day watching the wake. Take care.
  10. thanks cruisequeen, I will keep checking a couple times a day when I have time. It is not like it is two months away. I have a lot of time. So, one other question for those of you who have sailed on her before. Right now we are wait-listed for 7:15. I don't want to eat at 5 - too early. Anyone been wait-listed and had no problem getting the later time? I like a few cocktails before dinner and I am too full after I eat. Heck, I will either have to start drinking mid afternoon or not drink at all. Thanks
  11. begs, There are none to be assigned. When I first tried to book, there was one club class and I started to fill in my info - (after Princess was closed) so I had to start over. At that point, all mini suites were sold. Someone must have snapped up the one I was trying to book - they are probably a faster on the computer. The only thing that was available under mini suites was to allow them to select my cabin. I want this cruise so I selected it and put it on hold. It was a ME mini - not club class and then to make things worse, we are on a wait list for 7:15 dinner. I have n
  12. Thanks for the reply JF. I was not sure if the Pacific did things differently since they are so few suites. 10 full suites -2 at bow and 6 on stern. Only14 club class minis and 26 regular minis. None of my friends do guarantees so no real experience when they are assigned. I always book suites so having them sold out was my first disappointment. Thanks again for the fast reply
  13. I just discovered a South pacific cruise that I have wanted to book. We were suppose to be on a similar one this fall but it was canceled last year because of Cuba being put on the no travel list and they rearranged the three month of cruising. I wish I would have discovered this cruise sooner because there are not many of cabins left. There are not many to start with being such a small ship. I went to book it, had a club class mini and when I was almost finished , a note popped up saying there were technical difficulties. I started over and when I got to picking the cabin,
  14. We purchased the new medallion internet package a year ago and it was wonderful. Now it comes with their new promotion. Some ships still are not set up with the medallion. The Sapphire did not have it on our 6 week cruise last fall. I am hoping that all the ships have been updated during this down time. AF-1, I think eliminating and cutting back on services has happened all over. I just want to get back on a ship so I won't complain too much if they cut out a few more things
