    Cool Cruiser
  1. Luvsnorkeling - Yes, you MUST use a web browser to connect to Princess@Sea. Any device with a web browser will work (like an iPad or even an iPod Touch, if those are still around) as long as it's connected to the ship's WiFi. But it won't be able to connect to the outside Internet unless you also buy an Internet access plan for that device. Otherwise the only site the device will be able to connect to is the one provided by the on-ship server (which on my recent voyage was http://emerald.princess.com).
  2. We had a big, unexpected problem with the Princess@Sea messenger functionality during our recent cruise on Emerald Princess. Messages are shown as coming from the passenger's legal name, with no way to change it that either we or the manager of the internet cafe could find. If you have multiple generations of a family on board with two or more people with the same first and last name, it can make it impossible to tell which messages are from whom. We had to sign all our messages manually, and there was much confusion when one of us forgot. Because of that, the lack of push notifications, and frequent "System Temporarily Unavailable" server errors, we'd pretty much stopped using Princess@Sea by the third day of the cruise. If we cruise again, we'll probably just resort to a whiteboard on our stateroom door, which we saw lots of other passengers using.
  3. Does anyone know if the Port of Seattle will valet bags from Pier 91 to Sea-Tac for a flight leaving the next day? We're disembarking from Emerald Princess on Sunday, August 5th, but our flight back to the east coast isn't until Monday morning. I don't see any information about this on their site, but will inquire via email (and report back here) if no one here has an answer. Thanks in advance!
  4. I downloaded the Patters when I came across that thread, and it looks like on that sailing (Emerald, June 10-16) the Crab Shack was on Tuesday and Thursday in Café Caribe. Can anyone point me to (or describe) a Crab Shack menu on a recent Alaska sailing? I've read that it varies on Alaska cruises, but can only find the regular non-Alaska menu.
