  1. Did you check Princess website itinerary and your Travel Summary?
  2. I had paid for my Hawaii cruise excursions. I also received 20% discount email. The 20% discount was the same price I had paid. After the 20% discount finished, the excursion prices when up.
  3. I received a move down offer (from balcony to inside), the day before my Caribbean, Feb 2024 cruise. I had balcony with Plus. Cruise fare would be applied as OBC onboard, if not used up a cheque would be send. I did not have WiFi until I got to my FLL hotel. By the time, I send the email back, someone else had replied.
  4. I am Canadian and purchase OBC under On Board Services as the exchange rate is better than the bank. You can only purchase $1,500 US, OBC for the cabin. You are not able to use the OBC purchased before your cruise. You will receive a card in your cabin - $??? OBC has been applied to your onboard account, not sure the actual wording. The OBC purchased will be applied to your onboard account to spend on whatever you want while on the ship. The purchased OBC is refundable as you purchased it. If there is any refundable OBC left on your onboard account at the end of your cruise, Princess will send you an USA cheque, the envelope is not from Princess so be careful thinking it is junk mail. If you have refundable OBC under $25, you can get cash refund at Guest Services the last day. Once purchased online, it will show at the bottom on On Board Services and also on Travel Summary (take a copy of this as it will show itinerary, number of Dress to Impress nights (use to be called formal night), flights/hotel/insurance (if purchased through Princess), anything purchased - Plus, OBC, excursions, spa, etc. You will get an email that you have paid the dollar amount paid in CDN. ie - This is what I paid for my OBC and what I paid in CDN. - $135 CDN = $100 US
  5. When I went to the Tattoo (have been 2x), I was told from a passenger from the year before, to leave when the solo piper starts to play to try to exit before the crowds as there is only 1 entrance/exit. We could hear the piper and see the fireworks as we walked. There is no intermission during show. The seats are in one long row from one aisle to the other aisle. Port-a-potties are near the entrance/exit.
  6. I feel sorry that were planning to leave the ship at Le Harve to go to Paris. If they had Princess EzAir flights home from Paris, Princess will get them flights. For others that made independent flights, they are on your own making arrangements.
  7. If traveling from London to Dover on embarkment day, check out International Friends. It is not listed under Shore Excursion & Transfers. You will find under Search by Destination. They pick up at certain London to Dover with an option of a stop at Dover Castle then Dover ship terminal. www.internationalfriends.co.uk
  8. We have a Roll Call for August 2026. It is never too early to start one.
  9. That is why not to fly on cruise day.
  10. You can also looking into International Friends on embarkment and disembarkment days only.. They pick up at certain London hotels with drop off at Southampton dock and Southampton with drop off at certain London hotels. Embarkment day - stop at Stonehenge Disembarkment day - stop at Salisbury, Stonehenge, Windsor I have taken it and it was a great way to see another part of Britain and being dropped at the door of my London hotel around 5pm. www.internationalfriends.co.uk
  11. ArriveCAN app came out during Covid. ArriveCAN is an app that you fill out for Canadian Immigration. Before you used to fill a paper form with the information now a kiosk at a Canadian airport. You can fill it out within 72 hours before arrival into Canada. You will receive an email. At the Toronto airport, once off the airplane, follow the signs to Immigration, there will be a sign for Express, follow Express sign, there is a kiosk put your passport down, it takes your picture, take the paper, gates open, hand your paper to the Immigration officer. Since you have completed ArriveCAN app with the information it saves time. I found as a returning Canadian, it saved time in the long line waiting for a kiosk, filling out the information on a computer and lining up for an Immigration Officer to hand in the paper. Not all Canadian airports have the Express kiosks.
  12. Before Princess changed the way the dining was set up, you had to be Elite or fully paid to make reservations. June17 is suppose to be open to book dining. If you can not book around that time, then you must fully booked.
  13. Check out Best Western Oceanside, 1180 Sea Breeze, FLL. Is 100 yards from beach, bar that sells food, microwave, refrigerator, $ washer/dryer, walking distance to water taxi, clean rooms.
  14. My new booking I made on May 16 shows up on Personalizer but not on the App. When I added my new booking number it shows Error. Maybe too early to see it on the App.
  15. I can’t understand how the prices have jumped up within a few hours. Yes, prices do go up over time. My cabin has gone up by $1,700/pp since this morning.
  16. I always tell people, put a refundable deposit down, you have 90 days before the cruise to decide to go or not and the cabin you want. Since your cruise is not until 2026 you have plenty of time to decide.
  17. Carmen Roig, VP Princess, posted this on Facebook this Sale May 17-19. You can check this out.
  18. Every time, I log in to look, the price has increased. Maybe with so many trying to book, they figure put the price up and they will still book.
  19. Try log out then log in, sometimes that works for me.
  20. My agent booked a BC cabin this morning. I was checking to see if cabins were now available since so many could not get a cabin. Maybe Princess was holding or slow releasing or too many booking cabins, there are cabins now available. My BC deck now has only Reserve guaranteed cabins available. Princess increased my BC cabin price by $825 more in just a few hours. Hope they don’t come back and say the morning price is the wrong price.
  21. My agent booked a BC cabin this morning. I was checking and saw some cabins were now available. My deck now only has Reserve guarantee cabins. With the cruise selling so well this morning, Princess has increased the price. My cruise fare has gone up by $825 more in just a few hours.
  22. Some agents might have reserved group cabins, they can hold onto them until they have to release them back to Princess.
