I'm hearing that the January 6, 2020 Crown Princess cruise in the Med. skipped three of its six planned stops.  It's a mystery right now as to why?

Princess Chatter has a new look after an unwanted forced upgrade.  Next on the to-do list is a Princess news update and a Princess daily unofficial schedule update.

Forced? Or non optionally invited : ::)
Anyway, glad to have you back Mike
Cruising Chatter / Re: 'We want refund!' Angry cruise passengers protest skipped ports

People who just the other day missed Princess Cays due to a generator failure on the island were given $75 per person which I though was pretty generous.
Usually when we miss any port the most we get in compensation is our port fees back.
Still waiting for a price drop on the Sky.  ;)
"The Navy and Coast Guard in Hawaii rang in the New Year by teaming up to rescue a 69-year-old passenger from a cruise ship 210 miles northwest of Hilo.

A Navy MH-60R Sea Hawk helicopter crew from Kaneohe Bay-based Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 37 conducted a medevac off the Grand Princess while a Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point HC-130J Super Hercules long range surveillance aircraft provided overhead communications support, according to a Coast Guard email sent to Navy Times early Thursday.

The Easyriders transferred the patient to Hilo Medical Center for treatment but his condition is unknown at this time, officials said.

“The Coast Guard and the Navy often work together during search and rescue operations in the Pacific,” said Operations Specialist 3rd Class Craig Howarth, a Coast Guard Sector Honolulu watchstander, in the statement."
"After moving from Chicago with his family, Lancaster will be based at Princess Cruises headquarters in Santa Clarita, California. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Louisiana State University, is an alumnus of Harvard Business School and a veteran of the United States Air Force. Marshall previously served as the founder and executive sponsor of the Hyatt animal advocacy group, and was also active in Hyatt's Veterans and Disabilities groups. Additionally, he was a member of Hyatt's Global Inclusion and Diversity Council."

The roll out of Princess Cruises’ high-tech Ocean Medallion system continues, as the premium brand will activate five more existing ships this year, in addition to the new Enchanted Princess.

The system expands to the Grand Princess (February 21), Diamond Princess (March 15), Majestic Princess (April 18), Star Princess (June 12), Enchanted Princess (June 15) and Sapphire Princess (July 27).
The Sky Princess is the first cruise ship in a fleet of more than 100 to be outfitted with Panasonic’s new PT-RQ50KU 3-Chip DLP Solid Shine Laser Projector. It will be used for 5-Skies, a new production show in the Princess Cruises fleet that blends live actors and projected imagery.

Panasonic has teamed up with Princess Cruises to deliver 4K projectors for the fleet of cruise ships that will make onboard theater entertainment more immersive. It’s a step that shows what interactive group entertainment will be like in the future.

The Panasonic PT-RQ50KU laser projector combines native 4K resolution at 50,000 lumens of brightness with separate red and blue Solid Shine laser-phosphor technology. Typical projectors are around 5,000 lumens.
