  1. Thatโ€™s my concern..I know comedy club is way too small and to see Beatles at cavern same thing..so you have to get there well in advance..will use touch screen for comedy as soon as we board...
  2. Hi, hopefully, I am not having a senior moment and repeating myself. We want to make comedy club reservations ASAP. Is this something that we must wait to do onboard? I am still unable to make them on my NCL....thanks,๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
  3. It is just a way to financially support the free beverage package...inflated price, highest gratuity rate on sea...it becomes a math question. In our late sixties we donโ€™t drink like we used to, so some days it is close on wether we come out ahead or not...you have to do the math, most days we still come out ahead, but we have to look at other perks that may save you more...it is crazy for most to purchase the package, remember you will be off the ship a lot and drinking on shore, at the beach ,etc....good luck
  4. Will keep an eye out...my son in law taught my grandson that phase except he would say to people..you hate us because youโ€™re anus...8 year olds can get away with a lot
  5. I realize free at sea is really not free...20% gratuity on inflated drink package price for example, but when I see the dining service charge of $21.80 each on our invoice I am not sure what it is for. We have a 5 meal specialty restaurant package, as well as our two latitudes dinners. Which is it and how do they get $21.80?...we always leave a cash tip anyway as service is outstanding and we are blessed so why not be generous..but again what are they billing us for. Is this a percentage of what the meal package would cost and are they building in a gratuity? Just curious...thanks .
  6. Was on Dawn last year out of SanJuan....game was on Patriot haters everywhere, can not really blame them....won 1200 dollars in the Super Bowl squares 3 and 3 was very lucky and Pats win was icing on cake...will be on Epic this year as well๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ
  7. Last week on Star, I was able to request soy milk no almond milk..this was in buffet
  8. We leave Tuesday. Will main dining room be open for lunch? ....just hoping..thanks
  9. If you are leaving on 10/20/19 like us, weather looks miserable. We will be there Sunday, but after two days of rain we may board earlier than planned...
  10. Thanks, hopefully a couple of seats available either afternoon..definitely want to get onto the island
  11. Saw this online as one of top 10 beaches in Caribbean. We had never heard of it. They said small pristine beach, free, good snorkeling. Has anyone been there? Is it on the far side of the island from cruise terminal. Very curious for our winter cruise in February. Any feedback appreciated..thanks,๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  12. Been on both...no comparison...go with Solstice....Celebrity a step up in other ways too.
  13. I was the OP that started this๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž and am pleased with all the feedback...I was disappointed with Caribbean Princess buffet two years ago, and the negative reviews of the Star prompted my post. I just hope there are enough veggies at lunch tp make large salad and plenty of fruit at breakfast with omelet station at breakfast. I believe we have to adjust our expectations as cruise lines try to hold line on fares. When I want salmon I will hit main dining rooms. Best buffets past few years have been Oasis class ships sailing with family on Royal. Combo buffet and sit down for breakfast, even grandkids ate well. Hopefully, I can find some almond milk too..canโ€™t wait to sail in a week, it will be a great time as every cruise has been. Life is pretty good if youโ€™re lucky enough to cruise ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰
  14. That is what is holding me back from booking...you can only do so much eating and drinking...how did princess fill the last 8 sea days and nights? Hopefully, there was a lot going on....what did you do?
