  1. Good deal. You get a sofa and a bigger bathroom.
  2. About 60. I make no judgements but knowing what we know, I would have left.
  3. Very sad news. I feel for all the passengers on the ship. Princess was just doing what the Japanese told them to do. Hard to understand why more effective measures were not recommended by the Japanese government. Not a place I. Care to visit.
  4. I would imagine Japanese will leave the ship as soon as allowed. At this point, seeing how the virus is spreading, I would leave.
  5. There is a Hotel onTravis Air Force Base where the quarantined people go. Not Barracks.
  6. So these people on the ship are going to Have make last minute air reservations and pay a-lot yo do so . Some may not have ghe money necessary to fo this. The airlines should show some compassion for these people and help them get home.
  7. The question is, afre they going to allow people to go to the airport and leave after the 14 days?
  8. Why is Davids AC suddenly a problem? Have been on long cruises and never had this problem. I hope they are not getting the virus. I always set the AC atbthe coldest setting at night, otherwise it was too hot. Something else is going on.
  9. Now I dont feel so bad booking a Princess Grill room on Cunard

    EXCURSIONS

    Mainly I have cruised Princess am in the habit of booking way in advance and using on board credit to do so. Princess uses dynamic pricing if an excursion is close to selling out, so the price goes up. Usually you can book 6 months in advance. since Cunard is different, I booked the first few days with private companies. Loss for Cunard.
  11. The US navy has two hospital ships that are in San Diego When not in use, these ships operate with a skeleton crew. But in as little as five days, each can be converted into a 250-, 500- or 1,000-bed mobile hospital with a crew of 1,200 Navy physicians, nurses, corpsmen, technicians and support staff. These are some of the most highly trained medical personnel in the world – working together as only a Navy crew can – with the skills to handle primary, trauma, pediatric, and orthopedic care. Each ship has 12 operating rooms, with specialized trauma centers and post care-unit beds included. It is amazing what can be accomplished medically on these ships, both for military personnel and civilians. No wonder these two ships have become a symbol of hope around the globe whenever disaster strikes.
  12. Some Americans are asking Trump to get them off the ship . Its possible it could be done. Send transport planes to Yokohama . Either use buses to the airport or send a navy ship or two to take them off. An aircraft Carrier would have room for all of them and they have good medical facilities. Not sure if viable but worth exploring. The US Navy has two hospital ships birthed in San Diego. Here is the information on them. When not in use, these ships operate with a skeleton crew.

  13. Employers need to do the right thing and pay these people. I would.
  14. Not worth it at the current prices. I used to play it a lot. No more. You cant make a profit even if you win.
  15. You are right. I had that while in Winchester. Thought it was first rate.
  16. Why wouldn't you just use a passport?
  17. Have you been satisfied with the wines per glass under$12? Have it on next trip. Also I heard somewhere you can now get a glass of champagne? Is this true?
  18. Wondering why they are staying three days in Quebec City. Nice port but would rather add another port. I know this cruise is part of another cruise and some people boarding Quebec City for a 7 day trip.
  19. I like Chocolate Croissants and Danish. Both poor on princess. Hoping for better quality on Cunard. Thanks for mentioning the croissants
  20. Splurged fir the Grills so Maybe it will be good
