"The Princess Upgrade process is simple—once the sailing is within the Final Payment period and full payment has been received, guests will receive an invitation to take part in the program and submit a bid – they can bid on any stateroom category that is above the one they are currently booked in. Guests can change or cancel their bid any time before it is accepted."

What about the people sailing a B2B cruise (2 ten day trips booked as a 20 day cruise)? It appears as they need a test while others that booked 2 10 day trips, do not.

"The cruise line canceled ports of call after a weekend of vandalism, looting and threats of mass violence in Northern Baja California.

Last Friday, a cartel sent a warning promising mayhem on the streets throughout the weekend unless some of its members were released from prison.

According to the Ensenada mayor’s office, Carnival and other cruise lines threatened to cease operations in Ensenada unless security measures for passengers were enhanced.

“I’m very happy they confirmed the rest of their scheduled arrivals and they trust in the actions we’ve implemented,” Ayala Robles said."

    the August 23 and September 6 sail dates for Majestic Princess and August 25 and September 1 sailings for Discovery Princess will now feature Icy Strait Point
    the August 16 and August 30 sail dates for Royal Princess will feature Haines
    the August 11, September 8, and September 22 sail dates for Discovery Princess and September 13 sail date for Royal Princess will feature Sitka
