I got that amazon email last week saying the new release date was August 22 so undecided to cancel. Instead I ordered the leather version from Passporter and it shipped on Friday. Plus I already have access to the online version. I got sick of waiting for it. Lol

Ordered mine directly from the Passporter website and received mine last week. Really impressed especially since we are in UK so expected it to take a while to get here.

FWIW, I got an email from Amazon today that my Passporter shipped and should arrive Friday.

I got that email as well. Looking at order status on Amazon, it now says "Delivery Estimate: Thursday, August 8, 2013 by 8:00pm" so I may actually get it even earlier. If I look at the complete tracking history, FedexSmartpost still says expected deliver Friday, but it looks like it arrived at our local facility just after noon today, so I'm hoping for tomorrow.

Remember that smartpost means FedEx delivers it to your post office, and then the postal carrier delivers it to you.

Fake leather, FWIW.

And now going forward you can just buy the much cheaper refills!

I pre-ordered the cruise refill directly from Passporter and still have not received it yet. Has anyone else received their refill pages?

Yes, I know that the USPS does the final delivery. I was hoping that the status meant that it was at the local post office, so that it would be available to be delivered tomorrow.

The much cheaper refills are still more than I paid for the paperback book from Amazon, even if you are a PassPorters Club member and get 35% off

Amazon per-order history

I pre-ordered the cruise book back on 2/16 for $13.58 with free Amazon Prime 2-day shipping. I don't remember if there was an expected release date when I ordered. My wife and I aren't going on the cruise until the end of September so I didn't have any concerns.

3/8 got Amazon email saying they were still trying to obtain the book, so maybe that was around the original estimated release date?

3/31 got Amazon email with 5/16 as estimated arrival date
5/9 got email with new arrival date of 6/13
6/6 got email changing estimated arrival to 7/11
7/11 got another email with arrival date now 8/15
8/1 email changed arrival date to 8/22
8/4 email changed date to 8/9 (moving up the arrival date)
8/6 Book was shipped with estimate arrival date of today (8/8)

Tracking show that package was delivered to our post office this morning around 10AM and we should allow 1-2 additional days for delivery. My wife and I are leaving for vacation tomorrow, so I guess I'll have to wait until I get back to start checking out the book. Can't spend time while on vacation doing some cruise planning.

Not sure why Amazon 2-day shipping uses a method that could add 2 days to the delivery once it gets from the warehouse to the post office.

I ordered mine from amazon.ca and there is no word yet of it being issued. Maybe I'll just cancel my order as I don't think it will be here in time for my departure.

Fake or real, I don't care - it's here already! Lol. It got here two days ago. The neat freak in me loves the pockets. I'm glad I changed my mind and ordered the refillable one from Passporter.

I wonder if the refills would fit in any other size binder, like the 1/2 size binders at most office stores. I don't really like the look of the pleather.....so I always order the spiral ones (I see the Cruise one isn't available in spiral with pockets though)

Guess I don't have to wait until after vacation. The package was in my mailbox when I got home from work tonight.

I received my refill today. I am not sure why it took so long but at least it came before my cruise.
