Have they given any kind of time frame for the repairs to be finished? Keep us posted with the updates, thanks.

Donna,

Not yet, but stand by. The press release (http://www.princess.com/news/article...rticleId=na772) says the following.

"We continue to assess the damage as well as the cause of the fire.

"We anticipate that on Monday we should be able to provide a further update on the situation to passengers booked on upcoming cruises."

Hopefully, the company will provide more information tomorrow morning.

Norm.

Keep us posted, OK?

Donna,

Keep us posted, OK?

It looks like we now have the definitive answer. The ship is going to Germany for repairs, and will return to service on 15 May with the first Baltic cruise sheculed for the summer season. The rest of the Caribbean season and the transatlantic voyage are cancelled.

Here's the press release: http://www.princess.com/news/article...rticleId=na774

Norm.
