Next Princess cruise...don't know yet. We have a short RCI on the Monarch in March and then we're hoping for a 7 day Hawaii on NCL (or one way on Celebrity Honolulu to Van) in 2005. But with Princess moving a ship to Galveston, that has got us interested too.
Our experience is the opposite of yours-RCI card was 5 weeks after our cruise. Go figure!
Yes, patience is a virtue...
Happy new year everyone!
