Hello Jean--

I've only traveled once so far with Princess. I received my docs approximately 4 weeks prior to sailing (that was for a Sep2000 sailing/Vancouver-Seward on OP).

This is my experience only. Also, all my experiences with Princess (land and/or ocean based) have been very favorable.

Hope you enjoy your 'time out'--happy holidays. I'll be right behind you on a cruise the first of 2001.

Pamela

Jean,
This can be affected by whether you've booked using cruise line air package. Normally takes a bit longer if they're handling your air.
Really can be anywhere from 10 days to 30 days prior to sailing.
My last two cruises it's been less than 7 days to sailing until I've received the docs. Guess they had trouble deciding if they were really going to let me on <G>
Regards,
Kuki

Jean, we received our docs about the middle of Oct. for a 11\26 sailing on the Grand. Kuki must be right about the air holding yours up. Have fun!!!

jean,

I have always booked my own air. The doc's typically seem to arrive about 3-4 weeks before the start of the cruise.

BTW, you should have received an "advance" package containing some general information, information on shore excursions (including a sign-up sheet -- Princess allows you to book shore excursions in advance) offered on your cruise, and a sheet to return with information on your passport and an emergency contact. If you have not received that package yet, do have your travel agent inquire about it.

Norm.

Jean,

I get antsy, too. In fact, I'm getting antsy to go on my next cruise even though I have not booked it as yet!
