I was going to post this question on 2OldPlayers thread dealing with "Roll Calls Disappearing" but decided it was off subject too much.
As I explained on the Roll Call thread, last Tuesday we booked a cruise leaving Tahiti on Nov. 14th 2020. I didn't mention that the reason we needed a large cabin with another half toilet in it was because we want to bring my Wife's sister along like we did in Nov. and Dec. 2018. Pacific Princess.
She hasn't decided yet to come, but that is no big deal, I thought. But after we nailed down the cruise she wanted to know what it was going to cost her. I couldn't get the price for that since those cabins are closed out and numbers are no longer on the website, or that is what I thought. So I called, they said "No can Do". They won't allow any more guests in that section of the ship due a "Fire Wall" limitation. What? After all these years on the high seas that's the first time I heard that one. I do know they have fire bulkheads and doors.
I waited a couple of days then called the Cruise Vacation Planner lady that helped me get the initial reservations before they closed out. She said that was correct, they have a lock on no more guests due to a "Firewall", apparently they only allow so many guests in certain sections of the ship due to fire control.
Anyway, she said after a while they will do another tally as some of the extra guests may have canceled or they never came through with names. In that case she said if you are on the wait list for a third guest in your cabin, they will get hold of us right away and put her on. No need for names or anything just that we wait list for a third guest in that cabin. So I did. If they open it up they will email me, then I get in touch with our CVP and at that time, if sister decides to go, we give her the name and pay the deposit.
Now, I'm not displeased by this, in fact it’s nice to know they have more control over things than I thought they did in the event of a fire emergency. I guess they have this on all ships? Anyway, I thought I would share this with you all so you will be in the know.
