  1. I love aft cabins. Plus they are a long walk from the elevator so you get some built in exercise!
  2. Provided there are no glitches with customs etc, you can do a walk off right at 7 and be at the airport within the hour. I have a Princess approved flight at 11:30.
  3. If I had my choice and it wasn't brought up here but I love the Ultimate Balcony Dinner. Of course it depends on the size of your balcony and the weather. Otherwise I like the CG.
  4. It will let you use it for an excursion. When you get to the check out page, it should be an option. Everything else, buy it on board.
  5. I've been looking at Airbnb. We'll be there for 3 nights. There are hundreds of options, whole apartments for @$125 US a night. Even cheaper if you just want a room with a private bath.

    As we get closer to the end of the year, he can go to the players club website and request a win/loss statement from this cruise and any others he might do this year. It'll be helpful to possibly reduce the amount of tax he has to pay,
  7. I can't participate in the Sip and Sail as it can't be combined with getting a casino discount. My next cruise is in January...for curiosity sake, I looked up the price. Right now a CC mini is $1300 pp more than I paid for my Vista Suite. Think I'll stick with what I got!
  8. Yep, the MMR. I had all 3 by the time I was 5.
  9. Yes, I've saved about $250 pp since I first booked. I doubt it'll go down any more but I keep checking .
  10. Due to the average age of Princess passengers, I would bet the number who have been vaccinated is extremely low. I'm 59 and the vaccine did not exist when I was a child. Normally they have to have a titer done to see if they have immunity, and no one gets one of those without a reason...like me working in a hospital.
  11. For a true upgrade, all it did was move my balcony to another balcony and then I got an upsell. I've had upsells many times from balcony to mini. Elite status has no effect as far as I can tell.
  12. The Concierge Lounge is a new addition since the Royal/Regal. It's on the Riviera deck next to the wedding chapel on those ships. Espresso/Cappuccino, pastries and similar stuff. It is staffed a few hours a day so you can go there instead of Passenger services etc. Supposedly that is where we get to hang out prior to disembarking. Mini bar is airplane size bottles, 2 ea of Vodka, Scotch, Gin and maybe rum, I forget. Couple beers, some soda, tonic water...You can switch out booze for booze, soda for soda etc or a bottle of wine or coffee cards. Just call room service and they'll do it for you. I agree with you about the Retreat bar. Would be nice if it stayed open for a while into the evening.
  13. When you board there will be a note in your cabin stating how much you purchased. You take this to the casino and they will give you in cash what you pre-purchased. Then you can use it anywhere...
  14. I love afternoon tea in my room. Get it anyway with loyalty status but having the room! Breakfast from the MDR on my balcony (in a vista), it'll be in the cabin with my window suite but I'm thinking with the size, we'll get an actual table (Hoping) Being escorted on board....in some ports The bathroom!!! 2 mini bars! The comfy robe And I'm betting that I'll love the concierge lounge with their espresso machine
