3  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Re: Sun Princess sold to China -2019. Ruby Princess based in Australia- 2020 on: November 11, 2017, 07:59:02 AM
Makes sense. I expected the Sun and the Sea to go with the new builds coming out. Surprised that the Ruby is going rather than another Grand class.

2019 - 1 New Royal
2020 - 1 "Upgraded" Royal
2021 - 1 "Upgraded" Royal
2023+ - 1 "Upgraded' Royal (According the Captain on the last cruise)

So do they still consider the Emerald based in Australia?

Golden to P&O in 2020, Sun to China in 2019, Ruby based in Australia in 2020, Emerald already there, Sea will probably go to P&O or be sold...

Look's like we are facing an invasion of the Royal class...

You can always open an excel file in Google Sheets as well. Here is a link to the Sheets version on my google drive:

Our big thing is dancing. With the Grands you had at least 2 to 3 dance venues of differing music and differing floor sizes. From what I have gathered on the Royal class you have the atrium - sometimes - and trust me when I say that dancing on tile floors is worse than dancing on the sticky glass in skywalkers...

We too are disappointed in the Royal class design. Been watching the AWE channel lately to get an idea of what else is out there. Very impressed with the MSC ships, but they are crowded, the Carnival Vista class and Viking Ocean.

Been also looking at Regent for Amazon cruises as well...

We used the hate the Grand and Super Grand classes until we learned the trick (Anytime Dining to avoid the rushes) and now we seek them out. Loved the Island until they butchered her, but at least we'll spend 60 days on the Coral.

But the real bottom line so far is that the Elite Benefits on Princess are just so far above everyone else. I'm not sure we could even go back to washing our own clothes and/or packing a lot of stuff!!!!!

New schedule is complete. Mike is having computer issues, so I am using a link to a google drive:

Let me know if it works...

There have been some major shuffles in the Princess schedule in 2018.

Working on updating and validating the spreadsheet.

Lots of changes in Ruby, Star and Emerald schedule.

Any one here on these cruises?
10  Princess Cruising / Princess News Chatter / Re: Transformation of Dawn Princess to P&O Pacific Explorer Begins on: June 06, 2017, 07:52:15 AM
It looks like it alternates between Eastern and Western itineraries so I guess you'll just have to do a back-to-back.
We always do B2B2B....cruises but doing it on a ship that only does 7 day trips means spending another day or two in Ft Lauderdale which to us is a complete waste of a cruise day doing nothing but waiting around for new passengers.  Angry

Agreed. We did a B2B2B on the Ruby in 2015 and the wasted day in FLL was too much for us.

Here is what was posted on CC by Coral. Exotics and Asian. Looks like a Round the Pacific on Coral. Can a World Cruise on her be far behind!

Supposedly booking on May 25th!

And once more with fares this time...
13  Princess Cruising / Princess News Chatter / Re: 2018 Cruises announced.. Spreadsheet update ???? on: May 04, 2017, 02:05:54 PM
The excel file did not load.

Let me try it again...
14  Princess Cruising / Princess News Chatter / Re: 2018 Cruises announced.. Spreadsheet update ???? on: May 04, 2017, 02:02:14 PM
The 2018/2019 schedules are out to the TA's. The America's will be bookable May 18, Exotics on 25 May.

Here are the various brochures and TA spreadsheets.

Once these hit actual websites I will try and update the master spreadsheet.

Lots of changes:

Royal to west coast - she takes from 1/26/19 to 1/23/19 to get there - expect a grand south American for her...

Emerald Tahiti in Fall 2018, Star in Spring 2018

14 day circle Caribbeans are back - not 2 7 day B2B's - on CP.


15  Princess Cruising / Princess News Chatter / Re: 2018 Cruises announced.. Spreadsheet update ???? on: April 25, 2017, 11:15:11 AM
Just updated the spreadsheet with the latest AUS/Asia cruises for the Sea, Sun, Diamond, Golden and Majestic.

Big gaps might be because of cruises in other venues or leases.

Mike will post when he uploads...
