  1. I am talking about August of 2022. (Didn't mention it in my actual post)
  2. I will be in London mid August before a British Isles cruise. I have begun to look at hotels. I see that some are not yet booking, but others are saying they have no availability. I did see on this forum that there will be a Royal celebration in June. Is there something going on in London also during mid August?
  3. I know you can purchase bottle liquor on board to use in your stateroom, BUT, is there a place on the Princess website where you can see what liquor is available to purchase? Can that list be looked at before booking a cruise? Also, is there a list of the liquor that the bars on the ship carry? Thank you. Trying to figure out whether we want to book the Best Sale Ever or just the basic and buy the liquor by the bottle once on board the ship.
  4. Looking at a cruise on the Crown. What is the difference between a balcony cabin and premium balcony? I know the dimensions are different (231 sq ft vs 271 sq ft), but what does it actually mean? Does it have a couch instead of just a chair? Is the outside balcony larger? Does the regular balcony room feel cramped? Thanks for any insight.
  5. Thanks for the info. Nini, I think you and I were booked on the British Isles cruise this past September. I am looking at the same cruise for 2022. How about you?
  6. I was on the Princess website. As I was scrolling through the deck plans of the Crown, I couldn't find any balcony connecting cabins. I did check the box that said connecting cabins, but got nothing except for 2 suite cabins. Does the Crown have connecting balcony cabins?
  7. My September British Isles cruise just got canceled by Princess. I will be able to get a refund for my non-refundable deposit. The other option they gave was to get double the deposit money in the form of FCCs. But, since the 2021 cruise is $2000 more for the same cabin type, I plan on taking the cash refund.
  8. That would certainly be agreeable to me! Thanks.
  9. I am booked on a British Isles cruise in September on the Regal. I originally had a refundable deposit, but changed it when the price dropped (before virus) in order to get the "freebies" that Princess was offering. Since they are now being more flexible with their cancellation policy, does anyone know whether Princess is refunding or giving FCC for the deposit? Or am I out of luck for the deposit money?
  10. Finally talked to my TA. My new final payment date is July 15.She did say that she could not do an automatic payment and that I would need to do it before that July 15 date or to call her before that date and she could do it. I feel better knowing that I have another month before I have to decide.
  11. I am booked on a British Isle cruise for Sept. 13. On checking the Princess website, it appears that they have moved the final payment date from 90 days to 60 days. I contacted my TA to inquire about my final payment date. Because I know they are busy, I said she could just email me the date. I received the invoice and the payment date had not changed. Before I call, can anyone tell me if their TA has changed their payment date for a cruise departing before October? Thanks.
  12. aheape1979 - I am really enjoying reading about your plans for your trip. I am booked on the BI on Regal in September. We, too changed to the Princess Plus. It cost us $380 each more, but our original booking didn't include gratuities or wi-fi. Between that and the premier beverages, along with an increase in OBC, it was a no brainer for us. We have booked our own air and have noticed the price has dropped by $400. We were willing to pay a change fee, but unfortunately, we can't change because we bought basic economy tickets. But, I will just feel good IF we get to take that trip. Such uncertain times. Stay safe out there!
  13. Having been to Ireland on 5 different trips, I have experienced the long drives to see various sites. I kept thinking I wouldn’t return, so have done a number of circular routes. My advice is to make a list of your must sees. Then plan a circular route to see them. Cut out the things that would be nice to see, but are not must sees. If Titanic Museum is a must see, go to Belfast, but maybe skip going farther up north. Choose 1 or 2 from Cliffs of Mohr, Killarney, and Blarney. Hopefully, you will return to Ireland again some year, but if not, you will have seen what was most important to you. Happy Travels!
