Cruising Chatter / Proposed U.S. laws allowing ships to skip Canadian ports
« Last post by Host Mike on September 19, 2021, 03:57:13 PM »
"The Tribal Tourism Sovereignty Act, introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Alaskan congressman Don Young earlier this summer, would allow cruise ships to circumvent federal laws requiring foreign ships to make an international stopover — meaning cruises could travel directly from Seattle to Alaska without stopping in B.C."

I'm having second & third thoughts about our Caribbean cruise in March on the Enchanted.
I keep hearing about all the problems people are up against every day on other cruise lines wonder if it's worth the trouble at this point.  :(

"At 175,000 gross tons, the “Sphere” vessels will be the largest ships built so far in Italy. They will each accommodate approximately 4,300 guests and will be based on a next-generation platform design, being the first Princess Cruises ships to be dual-fuel powered primarily by LNG."

I'm beginning to think our March 2022 trip in the Caribbean might not go as well. This pandemic seems to go on forever. Of course at this point in time we've only got $100 in FCC in place to hold our trip so it's not all that bad.

"Princess Cruises is pushing back the return of two of its ships and is canceling several sailings amid a recent surge in coronavirus infections.

The cruise line said in a statement that it is canceling its 2021-2022 South America & Antarctica Program on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship. "

Ed:  Princess just cancelled our Diamond Princess Santiago to LA to Japan for March/April 2022.  This is our third cancellation by Princess in a row.  Now the fight begins again to get a refund.
