  1. Hmm I received a notice from Princess today that they have to cancel our excursion to the Hobbiton Movie set from Tauranga in Jan for 'Operational' reasons. Pretty vague excuse. What is odd is that Hobbiton still has all the booking slots still reserved for the cruise line with a handful of vacancies dotted in between for the public. Wonder what they need the extra bookings for?
  2. We aren't traveling alone, there are these horrible things called teenagers tagging along....
  3. Anyone remember what the 4 device plan was going for?
  4. Everyone is welcome down under 🙃, though as you may notice even down here some have stronger views than others. But please don't feel unwelcome, we appreciate input from all parties where ever they hail from.
  5. Why is no one complaining about all of those 2 ups in suites?? Surely that is a waste as all suites are at least 3 pax???? 🤣
  6. Damn, sorry. that was the only thing that worked for me. Other than that I found I could never log in with my captain circle details, I can only log in using a booking number and surname???
  7. Last time I had issues I found I needed to update the app. Have you tried update it from the play store?
  8. Unfortunately it doesn't get the smell out though... especially from the cigar lounge if there is one on the ship.
  9. Can anyone provide feedback on what the price is for the soft drink package price is currently (if they still have it) for kids?
  10. Both were renewals and we were not expecting them to take as long either.
  11. I would like to say good luck, but I hope they have improved their service. Mine took just under three months when submitted in Feb and my sons took nearly 5 months when submitted in Apr this year 😒
  12. NZeta is not required for Australian Citizens traveling on an Australian passport. https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas/apply-for-a-visa/about-visa/nzeta#https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas/apply-for-a-visa/tools-and-information/your-journey-to-new-zealand/before-you-travel-to-new-zealand/travellers-who-do-not-need-nzeta/slider
  13. The requirements for who does Not need a NZeta can be found here - https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas/apply-for-a-visa/about-visa/nzeta#https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas/apply-for-a-visa/tools-and-information/your-journey-to-new-zealand/before-you-travel-to-new-zealand/travellers-who-do-not-need-nzeta/slider The second dot point is if you are an Australian citizen traveling on an Australian passport
  14. Pretty sure there is an option to pick from a range of images other than the standard Princess logo
  15. Thank you for the feedback. There is still nothing coming up on the app for us yet, all we get is try again soon so we will wait out until we can see what is available to book.
  16. Can anyone shed some light on how each of the Mdr's are being used on Grand? Are they having one for traditional, one for Dine my way, one split CC / Dine my way? Interested to hear how the new version of anytime dining is working, or not 😆 Also which Mdr is split if anyone knows?
  17. Lol I go to mine and it says zero groups available in the Early, Mid and Late boarding periods 🤣
  18. Everyone will have a differing opinion as to what will suit them best, we have cruised in all class of cabins from interior through to suites. For us the extra space and the peace and quiet of the balcony is a great part of a cruise and we are more than happy to pay for it. To others though it may just be an unnecessary space that they can do without. Only you can decide if the difference in cost is good value to you, I would suggest go with the one that you are most comfortable with and enjoy your cruise 😀
  19. Ours enjoyed both the kids and the teens clubs. We are down to just one now and the little bugger hits elite on his next cruise, not bad for 15.......... Why didn't I have cruising parents, sigh
  20. Nice, I received feedback from the Weta Workshops. Apparently I am the first person from a cruise they have heard from so far? They are excited to have international guest to start arriving and plan to join the shore ex program like their Wellington branch have done in previous years, but I guess that won't be until next season 😔 Upside is they are going to see if they can run a workshop the day we are visiting 😃 soo looking forward to that if they can do it, looks like so much fun playing with the blood and guts
  21. While we have been to the Weta Workshops in Wellington we have been looking forward to checking out the new one in Auckland. Was a little disappointed to see it hadn't made the shore ex list yet but we booked it direct. Has anyone been? Was hoping to do the workshops as well but they aren't on the day we are there 😞
