  1. I know I cannot bring a surge protector on board. But can I bring a simple multi-outlet plug? No surge protection involved. Just a way to charge my electric toothbrush and either phone or computer at the same time.
  2. Thanks, everyone Saw a suggestion on another board to attach the hooks on the organizer to string and loop that over the top of the door, then attach to the hooks on the inside of the door. Prevents any damage to the door or the jamb. Since we are doing a b2b2b of 58 days, think it would be nice to have a little extra storage.
  3. Planning to get an over-the-door shoe organizer to store assorted things. Does anyone know the width of the bathroom door on the Princess ships? Thanks
  4. Can anyone tell me how the mattresses are on the Emerald? We will be on deck 8 obstructed view room if that matters. We just got off the Crown from a 10 day cruise and it was the WORST mattress we have ever had in over 40 cruises. There was more than a 3" divot/sway on both sides of the bed (I had a tape measure so was actually able to measure it). Hubby and I both came back with a terrible backache. We are doing a 58 day b2b2b on the Emerald Jan-March, 2020 and if the mattress is anything like the one on the Crown, I don't know what I will do. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help....
  5. Just checking? Does Diamond status on Royal Caribbean have any internet minutes/perks like Celebrity? I looked on RCI website and didn't see anything. But thought I'd double check here. Thank you
  6. Will be doing our first Princess cruise in several years and I am excited about the good reviews of the bedding. I usually travel with my own feather pillow but if the pillows are that nice, I would leave mine at home. Do they provide feather pillows or, if not, can you request one? We will be doing a 58 day b2b2b and if I didn't have to take my pillow, it would free up some luggage space. Thanks for the help
  7. Is that correct that on Princess, you do not have to go to the second muster drill if you are doing a b2b (we are actually doing a b2b2b)? On other cruise lines we have been on, you have to go to ALL muster drills no matter how often you cruise. Would be nice to avoid it if possible!
  8. Thank you, everyone. Your info has been very useful. We will continue to pack suit & tie for hubby, fancy dress for myself.
  9. Hubby & I are back to Princess after an 8 year absence. And we're really back. Doing a b2b2b on Emerald mid-Jan - mid-March, 2020 (58 days). Have a few ? since we've been gone from Princess so long.... How "dressy" do we get for formal/chic nights? Don't want to dredge up pros & cons of same. We don't mind dressing up. Just don't want to bring to many fancy duds if not needed. How many dressy nights would you estimate we might have (first & last segments are 15 nights each, middle segment 28 days)? We plan on doing our laundry self-service so we can pack a little lighter. Am I correct that we cannot do laundry on the turn around/embarkation days? Any other useful info would be appreciated! Thanks
  10. Thanks everyone. We will pack ours!!!!!
  11. It has been some tome since we have cruised to Alaska. We are doing a B2B in August on Millenium. Are there binoculars in the cabins to use and, if so, are they any good?
  12. Thanks for the info. Very eye-opening. Will do some more research as you recommended.
  13. Hi Everyone We are looking at the 30 day South American Coastal (Amazon) cruise aboard the Volendam in November 2019. Can anyone give us feedback on the cruise and/or ship? It sounds like it would be a nice adventure. Thanks
  14. Does anyone know what this drink is? I don't care much for the cocktails on the Elite menu but this one looks like it might have possibilities. I would assume it's available for Elite menu since it is shown in a Celebrity post.
