31  Princess Cruising / Cruising Tips Chatter / Princess visa card - What's in your wallet? on: November 22, 2018, 05:28:14 PM
"The Princess Cruises Rewards Visa Card can offer some benefit to Princess Cruises fans who spend a lot with the cruise line, and its flexible redemption options are a plus. But its complicated redemption tiers can be confusing.

Even if you do take to the sea on a regular basis, other travel cards offer more lucrative sign-up bonuses and point-earning programs that are easier to understand and potentially better fits for everyday spending. Research these options to make sure the Princess Cruises Rewards Visa Card is seaworthy for you."

"A 52-year-old American woman aboard a Princess Cruises ship sailing in the Caribbean died Tuesday in what authorities are treating as a possible murder case, according to several news outlets in the region.

Aruba-based Diario reports the woman plunged from an upper deck of the 3,600-passenger Royal Princess onto a lifeboat after struggling with a man who was seen choking her. Another Aruba-based outlet, MasNoticia.com, reports authorities are investigating the incident as a possible murder case.

The ship was sailing between the islands of Curacao and Aruba at the time of the incident."

36  Princess Cruising / Cruising Tips Chatter / Re: How to maximize your On Board Cabin Credits (OBC's) on: November 06, 2018, 04:59:07 PM
Three additional ways to save depending on how generous Princess is feeling at the time.  Your mileage may greatly vary!

1. Gambler fares: You may only pay port fees, get a white lanyard for free drinks in the casino, captain’s private party at times and a black card.  You may also get free air.

2. Move over fares:  When the ship or cabin class is oversold your original fare may be refunded and a free future cruise or at least a free different level cabin may be offered.  Sometimes future on board credits may also be offered.  These move over deals are typically offered to those living near the embarkation port.

3.. Suite upgrade offers:  If you receive this offer you have to move very fast but beware -  Princess has lately been making this offer pretty pricy.

It's a joint effort.  CCrain deserves credit.

42  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Bahamas Cuts Off Cruise Line Cash Flow on: October 22, 2018, 08:50:03 AM
"This week, the Bahamas’ Minister of Tourism told reporters that they will no longer pay cruise lines to bring them passengers. Why? Because too many stay on the boat as opposed to coming ashore to spend their money."

(ed:  We now learn that cuise passengers pay a port tax then the port government refunds money straight back to the cruise line)

44  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Princess Cruise Line Makes Unexpected Dining Changes on: October 21, 2018, 05:25:15 PM
"Message boards across the internet lit up earlier this week as word spread that Princess had altered the set dining times for passengers who had chosen to go with “traditional dining.”
On Twitter, @yesthesamesue asked, “Why the change to dinner times? People do not want to eat at 4:30 or 4:45 p.m., and it’s going to make anytime dining a mess… especially since a lot of the time, ships don’t leave port until after 5 p.m.!”

(ED:  This is one way to get passengers into the bars earlier)
