  1. the Royal has never sailed to Alaska before
  2. that is correct....not for any Canadian airlines
  3. Can't use the valet program for flights to Canada, anyway....
  4. not that I saw, nor did I see any USB plugs either....
  5. We were on this same cruise, and the two previous ones for a total of 30 days. Ate at Crown Grill twice, and have very enjoyable meals both times, but also missed the bisque. For the most part, enjoyed the shows but were sorry that one of the dancers broke her leg on stage during a performance on our March 7th sailing. The Regal was with us in St Thomas, not Dominica, as you suggest.... Although I am not a coffee drinker, general opinions from the coffee drinkers that we socialized with was that the coffee was the weakest ever in the IC, and one needed an expresso shot to make it drinkable (at the cost of 1 "punch". We saw a whale on the last sea day "from Deck 17", also. Not many chair hogs noticed, but while taking 20 minutes from lunch one day, a lady moved our two loungers to a spot with no view and took our table! Embarkation was a breeze, and we were on board by 11:15am. Also, it should be noted that in St Thomas, the USCG did a surprise inspection, and the crew were thrilled to receive a 99/100 score. For those that keep track of such things, on the March 27th sailing, the cut-off for the MTP event was 440 days, the previous cruise was about 400 days, and I don't know the number for the cruise before that.
  6. there are multiple shows in multiple venues, depending on the ship.....are you asking about shows in the theatre, only? If so, usually 2 per night with time usually 715 or 915
  7. Just back from 30 days on the crown....coffee drinkers considered the IC coffee to be the weakest ever, and for a "normal" brew, people were ordering a red eye (regular coffee plus expresso), so "punches" disappeared very quickly at that rate.
  8. Last year, our refund did not arrive by check, instead, it was applied as a credit to our credit card of record.
  9. We tried it once to no avail.....and it seems to me that Princess fills up it ship well in advance of a sailing. It might work if you were on a 10 or 14 day, and asked very early on, but if they do have space, they probably will give you the same deal and any other person willing to sail at the last minute.
  10. those cabins offer much more usable space if the beds are set up are twins.....Plaza deck cabins, either OV or insides are very convenient.
  11. Yes, frozen style drinks are available.....and with the package, sodas are from the fountain, but you can buy canned sodas. They also have specialty mocktails...
  12. No, you don't have to take your luggage off the ship.....and ship's crew will help you move it to your new cabin. All very easy.
  13. check the pricing online to see if you might get a slight discount. It depends on the cruise. Take into account any on board credits that might be available. Hopefully you bought some Future Cruise deposits on your most recent cruise to use on the next ones In Ft Lauderdale, you usually have to get off with others doing B2B, this is done after all others have left the ship, and after your passports have been checked, you do a U-turn and head back to the ship before anyone else. On occasion, the officials will come on board and check passports then. You will get instructions a few days before on what to do. You do not need to find something to do in Lauderdale unless you wish to.
