My previous Princess cruise was so great, I booked my next right away. I honestly didn’t care where. Like the last, it was amazing.
The problems didn’t arise until the last day. I used a low-limit credit card for my onboard expenses (zero foreign transaction fees). An unanticipated number of unsettled authorizations put me “over limit.” I received a call in the morning of disembarkation and immediately settled my account on another card with guest services.
Two hours later when attempting to disembark, their security goon pushed me back and told me I owe the ship. I tried to explain the situation as he continued to make a spectacle of myself & holding the line up. It was less than three minutes in total, but not the way anyone wants to end a vacation. He was rude.
