  1. I just started playing this card game, Klaverjassen, on line and enjoy it. My wife and I are going on the December 19th Princess Cruise to Hawaii from LA and if there are any takers who would like to play please contact me.
  2. I concur with junglejane. My wife an I fill out the breakfast card and always indicate milk alternatives for our cereal. they've been good about it. Sometimes at the end of a cruise, if it's a lengthy one, they may run out of Almond Milk or Soy Milk.
  3. My wife and I have been in cancel situations before and fortunately we had our very competent travel agent work around it with princess. We were able to cancel and book an alternate cruise without any financial repercussions. We had no insurance at the time.
  4. Attempting to plan our specialty dinner reservations to coincide with formal nights. We are leaving on December 19th. We have 4 days at sea, hit days consecutive of Hawaiian Islands, 5 days at sea, hit Ensenada before coming home. I know the sea nights are when the formal nights occur, but we have 9 to chose from, so just a little confused. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Glenn
  5. Choices I found were pier 2 and pier 11. Specifically I'm inquiring for my wife and I are taking the Princess Star on Dec 19, 2019. We are contemplating renting a vehicle before departure, but not sure which pier. I attempted to contact Princess, but was forever on hold today and no-one ever picked up my call. Inquiry has anyone taken this cruise through princess before and if so do you know which pier was used? Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
  6. Military discount on carnival but no OBC. Just had my travel agent take a look for me.
  7. My wife doesn't like formal nights either, which is why when we were on the Royal we booked the Crown Grill and Sabatini's for the formal nights and since they served us faster it got us out early to enjoy the entertainment.
  8. Thank you, fishywood. I'll get my attentive radar in motion.
  9. What is, "Exclusive Window to Preview and Book New Itineraries?" Would appreciate if someone could elaborate on this elite benefit. Thank you in advance
  10. My wife has from December 15th to January 1st off. It would be fabulous to get some sort of group rate going out of the San Pedro California Port. Would like to inquire if anyone knows of any groups that may be traveling during that period and wouldn't mind having two more aboard? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
  11. How does reserving a suite bump your status? We reserve club class mini-suites fairly frequently.
  12. Awesome replies. You have all given us something to think about.
  13. My wife and I are getting close to becoming "Elite." Someone suggested for my wife and I to take a cheapie repositioning cruise and each by a cabin and it would then count as two cruises since double occupancy is required. Has anyone done this before? and if so is there a quick way to find out about these repositioning cruises?
