  1. I purchased the all inclusive photo package and that includes all the photos on a USB. Being that you can’t check the USB yourself onboard, unless you have a computer, some of them are missing. Who do I contact to get them since I already paid for them?
  2. So on the Alaskan cruises, what is the time frame to cancel excursions? I'm thinking about booking the Rock Climbing in Skagway and the ATV Adventure Karts in Ketchikan. Does the cancellation window close the night before? Or 2 nights before? Or a specific time like 5pm the day before? Does it have to be when the shore excursion desk is open? If the booking closing times are only onboard, is there time to cancel onboard if the excursion is on day 2 or 3?
  3. Do you have any friends or family that will be cruising before the expiration date of August 31st? If not, would you be willing to send them our way? I’ll have 3 college kids with me on an upcoming Alaskan cruise that all drink coffee.
  4. I read on some other reviews that if the bartenders have been with Princess for awhile, they still can make your Raspberrytinis and other favorites. Let us know if you order old favorite drinks and they make them for you. We are boarding in August and my sister has favorite drinks that might be missing from the menus.
  5. On 4 Alaskan cruises, my son has worn a tuxedo. When he was younger, he wore the tuxedo with tails. He looked fantastic. My daughter has always worn a long formal gown. They are now 18 and 21 and they still like to dress formal. On their 5th Alaskan cruise in August, my son will probably wear a suit and tie for the first time since he no longer fits into any of his tuxedos. My daughter wants to buy a new formal gown. I think it’s fantastic that my kids still want to follow the rules/ “suggestions.” I guess they are the exception nowadays for the younger generation.
  6. Which ships have an Escape Room? Do they have them on Princess Ships or only on Royal Caribbean Ships? My family loves Escape Rooms. In fact, we just did one yesterday. It would be awesome if the Grand has one.
  7. I couldn’t find the fine print on the new classic soda package but I did find it for the new Premier Coffee & Soda package: The package includes all, specialty or premium coffees and teas, hot chocolate, fountain sodas, fresh juices (if available), Gong Cha items (if available), Frappes at Coffee & Cones, mocktails, and smoothies as per the menu, Red Bull and Milk Shakes (if available). What I notice here in the fine print, it says: “as per the menu”. Does that mean you can only pick from their limited menu per area? Usually there are only 4-5 mocktails listed but what if you want a Mocktail not on the menu such as the chocobanana Mocktail that everyone has been raving about? Do you have to travel the ship to find it on a menu?
  8. We will be sailing for the 4th time on the San Francisco Round Trip to Alaska. We LOVE Alaska! The Princess Patters were just posted from the most recent cruise. Why do they still have the same old production shows on this ship? It lists British Invasion and Stardust. British Invasion has been on the Grand since 2010. The Princess website doesn't even have these shows listed anymore and haven't for a very long time. I was excited to see a new lineup of productions shows, "Born to Dance", "The Secret Silk", "Encore", "Fantastic Journey" etc. on the Princess website. Princess even states this: " And with every season, Princess finds exciting ways to deliver something new so that you’ll come back dazzled." Well, there's nothing new on the Grand, hasn't been for years and we aren't dazzled anymore 😞 Does anyone have any insight on whether the Grand will ever get new shows?
  9. Is this a new game to Princess? I don't see any other posts about it. It would be great if all ships could add new entertainment like this. I'm so tired of Bingo, Trivia, Bingo, Trivia, Bingo, Trivia and the same production shows for years and years. We will be on the Grand this summer again and someone just posted the May Patters. Stardust....again. British Invasion.....again. Uuuggghhh. Those shows aren't even on Princess's website anymore and haven't been for a long time. I really thought with booking a cruise this year, I would finally be able to see a new show like "Born to Dance", "The Secret Silk" and/or "Encore." Is it up to the cruise director if he/she wants to go beyond the basics? When will they change things up on the Grand?
  10. Where do I find the Princess form to transfer my booking from Princess to a travel agency? I've always been able to find it before but I can't seem to find it now.
