  1. Whistling Past the Graveyard Whether half filled ships are due to mandates or customer demand , it's terrible news for the industry . I never concern myself with how a particular industry is doing but this is scary . You know demand isn't there when people are shrugging their shoulders and abandoning large amounts of future cruise credits and OBC's . I've booked a cruise using credits but certainly won't be putting new money in .
  2. Wow . I thought that had been discontinued long ago along with bridge instructors and gentlemen hosts .
  3. Gotta believe this is a question best answered by RC . Normally I'd agree with Steelers36 but perhaps the cruise lines are being more collaborative these days. Hope I'm not being naive.
  4. This is my issue. Testing the vaccinated (who have proof) is another inconvenience and cost.
  5. I don't know Princess's policy but we got a great upsell on HAL from an OV to a to a accessible Lanai cabin for a great price . Their policy was unsold accessible cabins are released at some point after final cancellation period . In our case we booked late and the upsell was offered just two weeks before sailing .
  6. The worst balcony smokers we have endured were on Celebrity . We reported it but saw (and smelled) no evidence that it was acted on .
  7. I believe your opinion has great value. 🙃
  8. Does it matter if the CDC is Not Faring Well In Federal Court ? I will cancel my booked cruise if it doesn't seem safe (low levels of vaccination) or on the other hand, the safety protocols are too onerous . I generally support the CDC but at this point their role has diminished .
  9. I'm in the , CD doesn't really impact my cruise in any way , camp . Occasionally I've had an opinion and it was at odds with what most of CCers felt . Having read Matt's adios letter it seems that there is some pain there . This pandemic was very hard on many .
  10. What's a flip phone ? Never mind , I just saw a Consumer Cellular ad . 😁 Frankly this was never a great idea . Noro virus anyone ?
  11. I never thought I'd be so happy reading about someone else's cruise. Thanks A suggestion. Use an old phone . That's what I've been doing. It's great for wifi usage, pictures and music. If it gets damaged or lost, who cares.
  12. I'm not sure how it costs the consumer but I'm sure the loss of very loyal customers is not a smart decision . I'm not talking about myself having absolutely no brand loyalty but recognize that there are fiercely loyal Princess cruisers . Taking away perks that cost little but are greatly valued isn't a wise decision . As has been said , it's much cheaper to keep an existing client then to attract a new one .
