Reserving a Stateroom
After you register to attend this event, you will receive an automated message with booking instructions to join our Tesla Group package. Due to COVID cabin fever, there is a high demand for cruising, and staterooms are booking up quickly. Our Princess agent will be on the lookout for promotions or discounts, and if they materialize, she will apply them to our group package. We recommend that you book early to reserve your stateroom. You will have until November 2021 to cancel and get your deposit returned without penalty.
We are proceeding with this club event.
Legal battles continue, which affect the Florida cruise industry and CDC coronavirus cruise requirements. Click here to read about them.
At this time, the various cruise lines, including Princess Cruises, are implementing temporary COVID-19 measures to minimize the risk to their guests. Regardless of the outcome of the legal battles, we believe that these interim measures will adequately address the safety of our fully vaccinated members and their guests.
We strongly recommend that all members eligible to be vaccinated do so, especially if they intend to take a cruise. For this cruise, being vaccinated will enhance your safety and improve your onboard experience. For that reason, we recommend that you refrain from bringing children under the age of 12 since they currently are not eligible for vaccines.
Here are Princess Cruise's COVID-19 Guest Protocols as of March 4, 2021.
The protocols currently call for mandatory enhanced pre-embarkation health screenings, including 100% testing for COVID-19 prior to embarkation, touchless temperature checks, and health questionnaires, in accordance with the latest guidelines.
Here is a link to Princess's Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) as of July 16, 2021. In particular, please address your attention to the Before You Sail questions.
Although the answer to the first question states that all guests, regardless of age, must be fully vaccinated, there may be exceptions to cruises leaving Florida ports.
Please note that individuals who, under applicable laws, have a medical or religious exemption from being vaccinated; nevertheless, they must comply with applicable CDC requirements. In summary, they must show proof of negative PCR test results before embarkation, pass tests at the terminal and pay $150 per person for the testing. They must also wear a face mask indoors, maintain physical distancing, and are limited on which shore excursion they can take. Although the FAQ doesn't discuss the issue in detail, based on what is being done on other cruise lines, unvaccinated guests may not be permitted to attend specific venues intended for vaccinated passengers.
Whether we organize group events together will depend on how many sign up for this cruise. We expect that COVID-19 considerations will be mitigated by late February 2021 and cruising will be permitted by the CDC. Nevertheless, depending on the course of the pandemic, there may still be requirements for some level of COVID-19 protocols that could limit our degree of social interaction.
Each port of call can be experienced individually or through the excursions that Princess offers. Fully vaccinated guests may choose to explore destinations independently on self-guided tours. Unvaccinated guests will only be permitted to go ashore through shore excursions sold by or through Princess.
Princess ships generally berth at Pier 2/Terminal 2 in Port Everglades. On days when multiple ships are in port, another berth may be assigned. Ship pier/terminal assignments are posted at the entrance of the port and will direct you to the appropriate location.
There is a 6-level parking garage adjacent to terminal 2 that costs $15 per day. (Price is subject to change.)
Terminal 2 is about 10 miles east of the Plantation Supercharger Station. It is about 15 miles north of the Aventura Supercharger Station and about 34 miles south of the Delray Beach Supercharger Station. If you plan to leave your Tesla parked for the 10 days unplugged, it would be prudent to leave it with an adequate charge because it will lose charge during the cruise.
For anyone interested in staying at a hotel the night before departure, Hyatt has two nearby hotels with Tesla Destination Chargers.
Hyatt House Ft. Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port
Hyatt Place Ft. Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port
Both hotels are about 6 miles from the cruise port. Their locations are programmed into your Tesla's navigation system.
We look forward to seeing many of you on this Cruise!
