I almost book last month, I think I should just hold on a little while to see if the PP requirement goes down
Current requirement
12,500 balcony,
25,000 balcony deluxe
75,000 palace
100,000 palace deluxe
Balcony Deluxe PP should be 17500PP. Book online less 10% is 15750PP.

Last month GD website quoted much higher PP for Xmas Island cruise, I almost booked via my agent but she was on leave and didn't reply me. Until the outbreak happened, she replied me with 12,500PP for balcony and 75,000PP for suite.
Today, the GD website quoted 15,750PP for Balcony deluxe, think they have adjusted the PP requirement. Time to book my Xmas Island cruise liao.

I kept the screenshot of the PP quoting of last month.

What! even Peak rate of 5/6k (Balcony/Deluxe) per night or 25/30k for the 6D/5N rates still lower than the screen rate you took. Must be something wrong but now adjusted.

Thought you should have enough PP for suite then why go for Balcony Deluxe?

Latest on the World Dream saga.

Denied entry to Kaohsiung Taiwan.

Feb 5 cruise from HK cancelled.

Looks like the ship is heading back to HK. Now what.

This few months will be tough time for RWAS if the virus still persists... China & HK will be a dead market.

They are holding back sign on for their cruise staff from what i hear from them. So all those going back for leave will be till further notice.. They will sure rotate some staff from other cruise ship to GD.

In SG the only way to attract members to go onboard will be by giving attractive promos or events. Most likely another round of PP promos..

Hopefully Dream Cruise also cancel Mar Cruise so that I can get back my full refund as I don't feel like cruising for the time being due to this VIRUS.

I have 6 travelers together.
I am arranging 4 travelers to stay in Palace deluxe, 1 in balcony and 1 in Oceanview cabin.
I put up a request to stay in 11008 or 11508 which is join to balcony and oceanview cabins. The living room of the suite shall serve as our common area. Afterall, it a 6D5N cruise and we have a lot of time to spend together. The problem is my agent does not have confident to secure the cabins.

Apparently, many have canceled their upcoming cruise trips.
Usually I cannot see the itinerary for nearby traveling dates, surprisingly cabins for 7 Feb cruise are still available. This shows many have cancelled this Friday cruise.
I think GD will give comp cabins to anyone who is interested to cruise during this period. No need PP to redeem

You may want to add below in your request in case above options not available. Only bad is Deck 9 might be a little noisy due to lower deck.

9300 Suite Aft has 2 connecting Balcony cabins 9298 and 9302.
Opposite 9800 Suite Aft with 9798 and 9802.

9008 Suite Fwd with 9010 Balcony and 9006 Windows.
Opposite 9508 Suite Fwd with 9510 Balcony and 9500 Windows (beside Helipad).
