I haven't sailed on Princess since Jan 2000 when I was married to my late husband. When my TA booked a cruise for my new husband and I this past Sept Princess recognized the address and gave me past cruise credit. They gave my husband, retired from the Army, the $100 credit after he sent in the paperwork. So far, I'm becoming impressed with Princess again.
