I wonder if sending B-52 nuclear bombers there had anything to do with it? Roll Eyes

Naw! Roll Eyes

Yeah, old news; but I think they just finished the investigation.

How annoying; I've never heard of that happening--at least not so many times.

Good luck with this.  He would have to prove that Princess knew about the spill AND neglected to clean it up or put out appropriate signage in a timely manner.  He would have to provide an eye-witness to the fact that a Princess employee became aware of the spill and did nothing.

I wonder if they do a blood test on thsese people who "fall" overboard to see how much they've had to drink.  Wink

They should but probably can't without permission, which nobody is going to give if they are thinking of blaming (read suing) the ship.

I'm certain they push to have them installed on all the ships as fast as possible when they discover the big increase in sales.
One thing I am certain of: It won't change my spending habits by one dollar. They probably know that already. 

I'll second that.

It hasn't hit us yet in all the years of traveling.
Guess we're just fortunate.

. . . . and careful.  Same here.  Been cruising since 1974 and never been sick with noro.

I totally agree with all of what has already been said here by the previous persons two persons.  All 14 reasons listed are very much more good reasons to be aware of ahead of a cruise but certainly not any reasons to stay away from cruising... no way.  We have been on many a cruise as Elite passengers but certainly NOT afraid of them to not cruise at all.  If there are many people who are afraid of cruising for any or many of the printed reasons... then by all means don't go as you could ruin a perfectly enjoyable cruise for other people?  Stay home, be a "cruise pooper" you will miss so much of life all around our wonderful world...  More cabins available for all the rest of us cruisers to enjoy.   Grin...   

I love your point about just staying home if you think you are a person who would fret about any of these things; stay home so you don't ruin somebody else's cruise.

These aren't good reasons not to take a cruise; they are things you should be aware of.

This kind of thinking would tell you to never fly because the plane might crash; or you should never swim in the ocean because you might be eaten by a shark. 
10  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Re: Claim of air pollution levels on cruise ships is in dispute on: February 04, 2017, 11:59:25 PM
That's nice to hear, Rich; I had a mid-ship mini booked before I got the upsell offer for the suite.  I should have stuck with the mini. 
11  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Re: Claim of air pollution levels on cruise ships is in dispute on: February 04, 2017, 12:35:27 AM
Maybe it's those aft cabins that get most of the pollution. I never smell anything mid ship.
Oh,  please don't tell me that. We have booked an aft cabin for a summer cruise in 2018.

I almost always book aft cabins and only once had a problem with smells or pollution and that was the soot problem on Royal Princess.  I would not book an aft cabin on any Royal class ship.  Actually I would not book any cabin on any Royal class ship.

It's been a long time since I last saw them carving a turkey at the buffet.


You can say that again.  They used to have it at every embarkation.

Has this cost been passed on to the public yet?

If not, you can be sure it will be.

I've never spent any time in Skywalker's in smooth seas  Wink
It's either too crowded or too empty.  And we always have early Traditional dinner so there is never time to get up there for the Elite/Platinum happy hour.

Yes, very nice; too bad I'm not in the 1%  Cry
