"NEW YORK – Attorney General James along with 45 attorneys general today recovered $1.25 million from Carnival Cruise Line (Carnival) for compromising the personal information of thousands of employees and consumers because of poor internal security practices."

"North American travelers can book a Princess cruise with just a $1 deposit during a promotion from June 30 to July 5."

"Unfortunately, one cruise operator went a wee bit–er–overboard and ordered a giant 9,000-passenger ship that was set to take its maiden voyage early last year. And then it went bankrupt. Now, the Global Dream II will be ripped apart, its fixtures and engines sold and the rest scrapped."

“Due to recent staffing levels onboard Pride of America, we will be operating at a lower guest capacity to ensure we are able to deliver a high-caliber vacation experience,” Norwegian explained in the letter.

“Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate your upcoming reservation aboard the Pride of America and will be cancelling your current booking,” it continues."

"At this time, there has been no official assessment of the damage to Norwegian Sun, but the ship is continuing toward Juneau, albeit at a much slower speed than typical.

Passengers on the vessel reported very heavy fog conditions on Friday, which would have caused the ship to slow significantly as a safety precaution.

The vessel may have hit the iceberg in such a way to have caused propeller, engine, or hull damage. Growlers – small, low icebergs that may be the size of pianos or trucks – are relatively common in the area."

"They dropped us at a hotel and left: What happened when I tested positive for COVID-19 at the end of my cruise"

"A rockslide at the historic White Pass Railroad Dock in Skagway, Alaska, damaged the dock and caused minor damage to Discovery Princess on Thursday, June 23, 2022. No injuries were reported, but the hillside and dock will need to be assessed before repairs begin."

“Guests with affected land tours will have the option of accepting an alternative itinerary, rebooking for 2023, or canceling their cruise tour. Princess Cruises is also working to provide employment opportunities for the displaced teammates from Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge.”

"According to the cruise line’s website, the other three, Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge, Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge, and Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge, all have very limited availability. "

"The email said, “Crown Princess is currently experiencing a technical issue with one of her diesel generators. This is in addition to the diesel generator that is currently out of service for scheduled maintenance. While this in no way affects the safety of our guests or crew, which is our highest priority, it does restrict our ability to operate at full speed.”

"The cruise line has also recently changed its protocols in Alaska. Guests on northbound and southbound Alaska voyages between Whittier and Vancouver have to wear a face mask at all times when indoors."

"Princess Cruises has canceled the Baltic season for Regal Princess from April 9, 2023, through September 3, 2023. Royal Princess cruises in Asia are also no longer taking place from September 5, 2023, through October 10, 2023."

"The cruise line has announced more cancellations that impact those guests cruising in Australia. The Majestic Princess voyages from March 7, 2023, through March 9, 2023, have now been canceled. "

"As cruise ships return to service, SES is working to meet 'unprecedented' bandwidth demand that's a whopping 50% higher per user than in 2019.

Its next-generation O3b mPOWER satellites going up later this year with Boeing and SpaceX will be capable of delivering multi-gigabit connectivity. The first six of 11 satellites are scheduled for launch in the third quarter.

Service is expected to begin in early 2023. "

Ed: Princess Internet is slightly better than the old days and it appears that help is on the way.

"Beginning this Sunday, travelers who are flying back into the U.S. after a cruise (or a trip for any reason) will no longer have to provide a negative COVID-19 test before boarding their international flight home.

“This is a tremendous development that allows our guests to travel more easily and without stress throughout Europe as well as experience our Alaskan cruises that conclude in a Canadian port,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises."
