  1. Hi, we will be on Star in October. We only have a couple of prior Princess cruises. Last cruise on Caribbean Princess the theatre was totally inadequate as far as seating. If you didnโ€™t arrive at least 45 minutes before show time there were no seats. Even the lounge carrying the live feed was overflowing prior to show time. Should we expect the same on the Star? Our other Princess Cruise was the Ruby Princess and I think they did 3 shows instead of two. That seemed to work better. Also, any of the outdoor pools heated?....thanks, getting excited about the trip ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  2. Oct 22nd out Vancouver..west coast
  3. We are veteran cruisers with multiple lines. We have heard consistent complaints in the past about buffet quality and selection before many sailings. With the exception of our one MSC cruise..it was terrible!!...most buffets are decent. Our previous two Princess sailings were acceptable. TheRuby was one of the better ones and Caribbean Princess middle of road. In recent years I think all lines are cutting costs in many ways to remain competitive in pricing. Sometimes we see it in the buffet. We enjoy the buffet to grab healthy lunch options and to keep a flexible schedule. How have recent cruisers found the buffet? Are there decent veggie, salad and fruit options ate lunch? Any salmon and almond milk at breakfast. Can we get fresh cooked eggs and omelets?..thanks๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ looking forward to our October sailing๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  4. When you book through this program, you see the actual flight schedule, stops and all. If it is non stop, a big consideration for us in winter, that will not later be changed to one or two stops....Thanks
  5. Great game by Philly no doubt.....letโ€™s see how many years until they get back...long time between Super Bowls last time..๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰
  6. Thanks for info, so I assume you must have a Princess cruise booked to access the EZ air and must lock in by final payment. What if you choose not to use EZAir and book flights independently? Any obligation to stay with EZ air ? Thanks
  7. I assume EZ air is through Princess ? I have always stayed away from cruise line airfares because I found them more expensive and restrictive. Only sailed Princess twice so far, but may have to look into this if you can pick pwn flights and rebook for lower fares...sounds too good to be true...๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  8. Another question...if flight after cruise is Vancouver to Toronto...then change planes to Boston, I assume customs will be in Toronto...not done this before...thanks๐Ÿ˜Š
  9. Thanks for the support from all...as far as scrambling if you live in northeast that is probably the busiest travel week because of school vacations, they rip you off for air fare and every cruise we have looked at is almost entirely sold out at this point.We found some rooms on Allure, but are having difficulty getting quads and room on same deck. Grandkids like the boardwalk balconies and they are not all quads. When airfare becomes available, you need to book day one if you are heading to Florida. we are blessed that this is our biggest problem at the moment, and I am fully aware that Royal has tens of millions crown and anchor members so they will do what they want.. we will be fine๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  10. I received my credit card statement today and saw a credit of 2500 dollars from Royal. This was for three rooms on the Harmony for our kids, grandkids and ourselves, I called our travel agent and she said they received no notification either. Turns out Harmony will be in dry dock from April fourth until the twenty fifth. Royal claims travel agents were emailed 3 times times. We have used this agent for nearly 30 years and she is great, so I donโ€™t know what happened. I would have liked an email from Royal informing us the cruise was cancelled. It is school vacation week and now we are scrambling. Harmony is a large vessel and this will affect many people. just sending this out to spread the word...โ˜น๏ธ
  11. Hi, we have taken a couple of cruises with the family, including grandkids. Both were on Oasis class ships and everyone loved them. Looking at maybe booking Freedom out of San Juan, can anyone give us some feedback on how their kids liked the ship..thanks๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  12. Hi, never cruised to L.A. before. Is this an industrial area? Are there shuttles available to get out of port area? Currently, we have a morning excursion booked, but will be back at 12:30. We are docked until 11:00 P.M. After lunch we would like to head back out, but donโ€™t know the logistics of the port and surrounding area. Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated....thanks,๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
