10  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / TripAdvisor Usefulness Rant! on: July 10, 2018, 07:19:59 AM
I am getting more and more tired of TripAdvisor page layouts and information. They now pack the top lists with excursions or tours or something that they can sell you via TripAdvisor or Viator (a trip advisor company).

It used to be that a tour company would be listed, in the order of their reviews, and their website and contact information would be available to go VFR direct to them for information and tickets.  Now the top listing are the "recommended" listings with the top rated listing to follow later and there is no VFR direct information because they want you to buy direct via TripAdvisor. You have to scroll down and find the company on the later individual lists to find the links to their website to see what the prices really are and in a lot of cases the upper tier tours are from non-local companies. It can be very frustrating and confusing.

Now I have done it both ways. Bought from TA, Viator or scrolled down and went to the website, but this whole revamping of the pages is turning TA into a purely shop for their tours site...

Rant Over...

Welcome to the boards where you don't have to be careful of what you say, what website you reference, what signature you have, etc., etc., etc. (Mike has been banned several times from CC.)

Although we are just a few, I wish I could turn on a lot of those people from CC to here...

Welcome aboard!

We always stay at the Doubletree. Free shuttle, walk to restaurant. Not too bad using SuperShuttle from LAX and it takes HH points!

Only downside is that last minute shopping is no where around...

We've been booked for over a year. What took these people so long to read itineraries?

Geez.
14  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Shine Lawyers investigation pattern of noro on the Sun Princess on: February 22, 2018, 06:52:46 AM
They just had an outbreak of Noro at the Olympics with the security staff. No one suing them.

IMHO airport and airplanes are probably the main cause of Noro transmission...
15  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: 500 days on Princess is it a big deal. on: February 22, 2018, 06:50:48 AM
Yes. We got the 500 day treatment on our Panama Canal cruise last year. Very, VERY impressed.

Flowers, the good champagne - same as the most traveled package champagne - a signed card, a special tour and meeting with the captain and staff.

A big surprise for us and greatly appreciated...
