  1. 7 seas lover that's cool that we have been in the same suite! It really is great. fall of 2021 we will celebrate our 40th anniversary and we really want to take a princess cruise to the South Pacific. We won't be able to do 28 days so we are hoping they have a 14 to 21 day cruise that would do Hawaii and Tahiti. But they haven't posted the itineraries for fall 2021 yet. We are hoping! In the meantime we have the crown in January and we do the star to Alaska in July so it will be a great cruising year for us!
  2. We had perhaps our best cruise ever last January. We did the 10 night southern Caribbean on the crown princess. We were in a vista Suite E733. We loved it so much we are doing the same cruise this Jan and in the same room! The itinerary is a little different. We have never been to princess cay. We have never been to Bonaire. Those are the two stops that are different. Then St Thomas, Aruba, Dominica and Grenada What has changed in one year on the crown? Are the shows the same? What are some secrets spots or fav experiences we may have missed? Any tips for princess cay or Bonaire? Also does anyone recommend a good private guide on Grenada?
  3. Very helpful. We have been in E733 on the crown and loved it. it looks very similar to the same character on the story but I can't tell if it's identical. We definitely want a covered balcony
  4. Thanx! Caribe or Emerald vistas?
  5. Looks like E733 still available. But so is Caribe 751. On the deck plans it looks like Caribe Vista suites are a little larger than the ones on Emerald deck. Does anyone know if that's correct? I know the dolphin deck Vista suites are larger but those are both taken.
  6. We are booked on the 10 day Alaska cruise on the star out of San Francisco next July. The confirmation from our travel agent says that we have E733 an Aft Vista suite. S6 category. We have been in that same cabin on the crown and loved it. However on my cruise planner on the princess website it says that we are in C4 20 a midship penthouse suite. S4 category. I was about to get in touch with our travel agent and complain to her but I'm wondering if this is considered an upgrade or why this may have happened. I can't see much difference in the two cabins except the location. Does anyone have opinions on which cabin would be better for an Alaskan cruise?
  7. We did the second itinerary last year and loved it so much we are doing it again in January! We loved Dominica and Grenada for the mountainous rainforest experience that is so different from other islands. Things to do that are really unique. And a day on Eagle beach in Aruba is a day in heaven for us. We have enjoyed the islands on the first itinerary too but for us the second is the winner.
  8. We are looking for a cruise that goes to both Hawaii and tahiti in summer or fall 2021. 10 days up to 2 weeks or so in length. As I'm searching all I find is Paul Gauguin and not sure we can afford that. Looks like Princess has done an itinerary like that in the past but nothing shows up for 2021. Do they not do that route anymore or just haven't announced yet. Looks like lots of other princess itineraries for fall 2021 are already announced. How do you know when cruises will be available to book? We want an Aft suite and they seem to go quickly.
  9. 15 cruises but never Alaska. Booked on Star Princess next July 12 from San Francisco. So excited! But I’m seeing lots of discussion about the “inside passage” and particular glaciers not to miss. Anyone have thoughts on the merits or downsides of this particular itinerary? Does it do the inside passage? Is Dawes Glacier our best choice? We wud consider changing to another if it were significantly better but we love the 10 night and getting to visit San Fran. Thanx!
  10. We will be on the Crown Jan 16 for 10 days. Excited! A few questions: I love Voice of Ocean. Will they still be doing it in Jan? Does anyone have a current menu for Sabatinis? We like creamy alfredo like dishes not tomato based sauce. Last time I was on princess they didn't seem to have much like that. Trying to decide whether it is worth paying extra for. Do do they do Crab Shack on a set night or is it random? We will be in a suite. Is there a special lounge with free drinks or snacks etc? And in general what do you love most on the Crown? Shows not to miss, fav food, secrets? Thanx!
  11. We are on the Crown Jan 15 to S Carib and the Star to Alaska in July. What should we book before we get on the ship and how far in advance? Specialty dinners? Drink packages? Spa reservations? Shore excursions? What am I missing? We are in a full suite and so I think we already have the thermal suite isn't that correct? In the past we have either waited until we were on the ship or booked things a few weeks out but it seems to me more is being done online and I don't want to miss out on the things we want to do. Thanks!
  12. Thank u so much everyone! So helpful
  13. We are considering booking the April 15 2021 Hawaii and Tahiti cruise on the jewel. It's been along time since we have been on Norwegian. This will be our 40th anniversary and so we are looking at the SM category aft suite with large balcony or the SD category forward suite with large balcony. Can someone help me with these questions? Which of these do you prefer? Do you get too much wind on the forward balconies? Is this a new itinerary for the ship? I can't find reviews of a Hawaii and Tahiti cruise on Norwegian? Has anyone done one and if so do you recommend it? Since we will not be in the haven what are the suite benefits on the jewel? Is there a special restaurant where we can eat breakfast and lunch? Does this category of suite get the butler and concierge service? Any other issues with the suites on the jewel that we should be aware of? I have read some conflicting things online about suite benefits for this ship. Were the suites upgraded during the recent drydock? All the videos of the aft suites are old and the carpet looks hideous and the room just looks dated. How is the thermal suite on the ship? We have really enjoyed these. Is it coed? Is there a hydrotherapy pool? Does this ship have a vibe or some other quiet adult only sundeck? thanks!
