Not that I've heard.

"Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises have seen a spate of overbooked ships in recent months, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. The Wonder of the Seas, the world's largest cruise ship, has been overbooked three times in the past six months, according to industry blog Cruise Hive."

"Covid rates high on board.

Special disembarkation protocol for covid positive passengers and close contacts once at Southampton.

All passengers who have tested positive during the cruise and those travelling with them (even if testing negative) must remain onboard until at least 10am and then be escorted to the gangway by cabin stewards in KN95 masks.

All luggage taken and tagged red. "

"Available in the popular Crown Grill specialty restaurant for $140 per person, the new Winemaker Dinner leverages the expansive expertise of Chuck Wagner, owner and winemaker of the renowned Napa Valley's Caymus Vineyards, to deliver a five-course menu (see below), crafted to complement the tasting notes of his wines."

"The Cirque Éloize performances will be located in The Dome and will be complimentary on a first come, first serve basis. There will be three shows per cruise that will last from 20 to 30 minutes each"

"The letter sent to guests states the following: “Please be advised that Grand Princess must complete a thorough hull cleaning in advance of our calls to New Zealand. As a result, we will now overnight in Los Angeles, California, arriving Wednesday, September 27, 2023, and departing Thursday, September 28.”

“As this will be a service call for hull cleaning only, guests will regretfully be unable to go ashore. Additionally, we will no longer call to Hilo, Hawaii, on Sunday, October 1, or to Moorea, French Polynesia, on Sunday, October 8.”

"The limited availability offer is quite generous – 100% of the cruise fare back as refundable onboard credit for the new, alternate 7-night Caribbean cruise, with up to two years to re-book the sailing. Credit that is not spent during the new cruise would be refunded back to the guest after that cruise ends."

"In addition, airfare booked through Princess Cruises would be protected, as would any amenities and packages purchased for the May 20 sailing, which would then be applied to the new cruise when booked. Up to $300 (USD) per person for “private travel expenses” would also be protected. Those private expenses would generally include separately arranged airfare, hotels, or tours."

"According to the Dutch shipyard, the Princess Cruises vessel spent a total of 16 days in the facility undergoing regular maintenance, in addition to technical upgrades.

The scope of work included installation of class certified parts for a new air lubrication system and a full hull painting program, Damen said."

“Which is distinctly different than a lot of the other large ship offerings that are more attraction-based and really complement to a theme park experience,” Padgett said. "

"Building out from the popularity of Disney and the other lines already operating from the Port, Princess will cater to a new market of cruisers in Central Florida."

"Guests sailing onboard a Sky Princess cruise that missed most ports in Iceland receive compensation from Princess Cruises."

Ed: Captain Marco Fortezze cancelled 2/3 of our March Sky Princess cruise stops including Casablanca which had perfect weather. Compensation was a joke.

Get ready for snarky posts starting later next week.

"The Norwegian Sun remains docked in Cartagena, Columbia, and probably will not make its transit through the Panama Canal, according to Cruise Hive. That was scheduled to happen on Tuesday, April 25, but did not.

Also, the remaining ports of call along the Pacific are in doubt. The itinerary was originally for a 20-day cruise."
