    Why are you waiting for responses here?  Why would Princess use this forum as official response to your questions?

     

    If you have questions for Princess call them up directly on the telephone and ask them.  And if they don't know at the moment, trust that "they don't know at the moment" and wait.  I'm sorry you have to wait to find out.  I'm sorry that so much is up in the air.  Coronavirus be damned. 

     

    But, if there is one thing I am sure of, is that Princess as a business will figure out how to handle your issue as a business when the time comes and I am fairly certain their rules will be their rules whether you like it or not.

     

     

    The problem with calling Princess is you could get 10 different answers to the same question. BTW, I don’t rely on CC for official Information.  .  The purpose of my post was just general curiosity, nothing more.....🙄🙄🙄

  2. My cruises are not until September 2021 and I realize that testing requirements can be different a year from now, especially if there is a vaccine.  But let's just say testing protocols will be the same this time next year.  I am confused about pre boarding testing.  My first cruise is out of Southampton and my second one is out of NYC.  They are b2b.  With flying from LAX and a two day pre-cruise stay in SH, will I have to get a test right before I leave the USA?  Will it be honored by authorities in Southampton?  Or, will I have to runaround Southampton looking for a rapid results testing facility?  What happens for the second cruise out of NYC?  How will I get another test on turnaround day (if one is required)?  I'm willing to do what is required because of my desire to cruise, but I am confused and it is somewhat stressful as to figuring this all out.....

    I sent an email to my travel agent, cabin booked for 7 day NE cruise is available.  Surprising, as I thought the better obstructed view balcony cabins on Emerald deck would be gone. 

     

    Mid-ship are no obstruction and many times just a few hundred more than an inside.  You can't see down but straight out is a clear view, plus some have an angle so the balcony is bigger.

     

    Glad to have 2 cruises booked, felt strange not to have any, I usually have 3 or 4 booked.

    You can always make the booking to ensure you get the cabin you want and have your T/A take it over later.....

    I guess it hasn’t opened up yet as no TA are currently offered for September at all.  I would rather be on Regal anyway.  
    Hope you find it.  
    I’m still waiting for something East to Southampton in April 21.  I heard that was going to be the Sky but nothing available yet.

    Yup, they said bookings for the Fall T/A would be open by the 30th of this month.  My guess is after they finish all the move overs.  Not sure about the spring T/A.....

    It is on the Regal not Sky Oct 23 2021.  The Sky supposedly is doing the west to East in April but it is not open yet.  I just booked the Regal and will book whatever goes over in April 2021

    Sorry, but the Regal was a move over for Crown Princess passengers who were only booked on the Trans Atlantic portion of the cruise.  Those of us booked on the entire 22 day voyage were not moved to the Regal and were left to fight over crumbs that are left over after all the move over are completed.  
     

    The original Sky T/A was a 15 day sailing departing Copenhagen on 3 September.  Due to the redeployments, that cruise was cancelled and the new crossing will now be a 14 day departing Southampton on 09/11/21.....

  7. Earlier this week I thought I saw posted the new (possibly not finalized) Sky Princess Trans Atlantic embarking from Southampton on September 11, 2021.  I’ve been searching for the last hour or so, but I cannot find it.  If anyone has it, could you please post it?

     

    Thanks

  8. We had our 22 Day British Isle/Trans Atlantic (Crown Princess) canceled.  My only hope is that there are desirable cabins left on the Sky.  It is my understanding that passengers sailing the 15 day T/A on the Sky are being moved/offered the new 14 day T/A out of South Hampton.   I believe the same is occurring for the 12 day British Isles cruise preceding the T/A. 

     

    We are looking to rebook the 12 day British Isles/Trans Atlantic on the Sky.  My only worry is there will be no desirable cabins left after all of the aforementioned move overs are complete.  Those of us who were booked on the 22 day. cruise on the Crown are not being offered any move over offers.  Those booked on the 14 day T/A portion of the 22 day cruise were being offered, if memory serves me right, move over offers to the Regal or Sky.  This last point is not hard fact, rather just some stuff I surmised by reading various CC posts.....

    Sooo...were you on the August 30th Crown sailing? I think there are 2 situations. One is there are people who were on the Crown that got moved to the Sky and others who were on either the Crown or the Sky? and got their cruises cancelled. If you were embarking / disembarking from somewhere other than Southampton, it sounds like those cruises got cancelled and you need to re-book.

     

    This is what our email stated:

    VOYAGE REDEPLOYMENT - CROWN PRINCESS
    Please be advised that due to deployment changes, your voyage will now sail on Sky Princess rather than Crown Princess. The newest ship in our fleet, Sky Princess features some of the same signature Princess amenities as Crown Princess, including the Sanctuary, Sabatini s and Crown Grill. In addition, Sky Princess offers the Princess MedallionClass vacation experience, Chef s Table Lumiere, and Bistro Sur La Mer! For more information on Sky Princess, visit http://www.princess.com/ships-and-experience/ships/yp-sky-princess/.
     
    You will be rebooked onto the new voyage, and will receive your new booking information no later than Wednesday, September 30, 2020. The cruise fare and promotions have been protected, and the new booking will be in the same category type and, where possible, located in the same area of the ship. Once you receive your new booking details, you can verify the cabin location using the deck plans available at http://www.princess.com/deckPlans.do?shipCode=YP. We look forward to welcoming you aboard Sky Princess.

    Looks like that was the case.  I was on the BI-T/A on October 5th.  I neglected to realize there was a separate stand-alone August 30th Itinerary.....

    We booked the cruise on the Crown prior to it being re-deployed to the Sky. Princess will be moving us to the Sky "automatically". While this is occurring, they pulled the itinerary from their website and won't re-post it until everyone gets moved over.

    I did the same, but my cancellation email said nothing about being rebooked on the Sky.  It just provided recommendations in a link inserted in the email.
     

    ****Update I think I migh have just figured out something.  I was on the 22 day BI-T/A.  Were you booked on just the BI itinerary?

    I have heard that they are not.  I do know that construction at Port Canaveral for at least one of these ships is ongoing. 

    That’s promising news.  I remember talking to Captain Tuvo on the Sky, back in February, where he told me about the construction needed to refuel the ships.....

    We have a Plan B and C ready to implement if necessary.  It is important to be on the ball if and when one booking is being cancelled in order to grab another choice that will most certainly be actively pursued.

     

    At this point it isn't all about being picky about what the itinerary is, it's all about getting back on board.

    Exactly.  We have a 2021 fall T/A and a 2022 spring Hawaii R/T on the books.  I may look for a couple more back ups for 2022 as well.  I’m holding off on anything for 2021 that is before my fall T/A.  Keeping fingers crossed a vaccine will be out by then.....😊😊😊

    I see we are on the same cruise. We met on the 2009 Australia & New Zealand cruise on the Diamond Princess. We look forward to seeing you and Holli once again. Joe & Kathy

    Hi Jo and Kathy.  Wow that was a long time ago.  Took us 11 years to meet up again on the same voyage.  Holli & I look forward to sailing with you again providing a  vaccine is available before the cruise.....
