Going to keep it short, we have seen enough about Hurricane Sandy to be way tired of it! Friends from Texas flew in early to beat Sandy and possible airline interruptions. We all wound up huddled at our house doing day by day wait to see if NY would open and let Princess back in. They did finally and off to Manhattan we went.
Despite no power at pier embarkation went pretty decent with two ships in. We sailed with changed itinerary and maybe a little lighter passenger wise but still plenty people boarded. Princess credited two days of our missed 10 day sailing per diem right onto our onboard accounts. Could spend or take in cash later in week your preference. Next they advised for those that made sailing we have a year to take credit of 50% of our PP price off as credit against next cruise good for 1 year. It already appears on my Princess account. Cannot ask for more than that. I thought Princess handled whole situation beyond their control wonderfully!
Cruise itself, we were are table 123 Palm dining traditional second seating, waitress and assistant EXCELLENT.
