  1. Been through the old locks, just wanted to know about the size of the ship. Not familiar with Princess ships. Thanks though.....
  2. I know this is an old thread but does anyone know which canal the Emerald Princess goes through, old or new? Haven't been able to tell by looking at a few websites. Any help is appreciated. ๐Ÿ˜
  3. I was talking about the type of statistics you quoted, descriptive statistics are always looked at with a bias in the analysis. Marketing research especially. If you base your opinion on this type of research analysis, there is bias inherent in the analysis. Sorry for the confusion. โ˜บ
  4. Hi OP, Very interesting post to say the least. It appears to be a `marketing` post. Using biased, descriptive statistics offers, not much credibility to your input/point. All of your references are, well, marketing driven. We all know how marketing works getting people to purchase a product. Anyone in research knows that surveys are the weakest tool used, as the response rate is usually low and often completed by those wanting to complain. Very one sided and also biased. Qualitative research is burdened with this so not as robust and is viewed as such. This is how marketing research is done, I have worked with it, so take all of the marketing analysts data results with a grain of salt or with eyes open to bias. This is my opinion based on experience but I do respect your opinions. Safe sailing all! โ˜บ
  5. If this man had a stroke just 2 months ago he probably is not physically or even emotionally strong enough to take on such a trip. Same with the family, they most likely are still trying get their hearts and head on what happened to their beloved family member. Recovery from a stroke can take a long time, even years. More than likely why his physician doesn't think he should go. I believe people forget how rigorous travel is now, even with assistance. The man has done a parental guilt trip on his daughter; his disrespectful behavior may be as a result of his stroke changing his personality. It happens. She may not be capable of saying no to him. OP, I totally understand where you are coming from; the situation is difficult to watch. I am in HC also. If they decide to take him, make recommendations if asked but otherwise I would stay out of it. Enjoy your own cruise as best you can. JMHO. Safe travels all!
  6. This is a great idea; I would need to look how far out I could book the second flight so we could space them out a bit. Thx!
  7. I agree, now we price out all of the cruiselines before we book. ๐Ÿ˜Š
  8. I know this is an old thread but would like to give a heads up about the hairdryers, again. I just got off of the Star and the hair dryer was awful! They are very low flow; reminds me of the dryers from the 70`s. Princess must have gotten a close out deal on them. I don't believe you can even buy one like this any more!๐Ÿ™„ See photo in post #36. Bring your own; I bought one at a port to use half way thru the cruise. Just doing due diligence to help the public....๐Ÿ˜Š Safe travels and good hair days all!!
  9. Sorry if you took this wrong, I was speaking to that specific poster. I agree with you, but how that poster's drinking profile has anything to do with your question, I am not sure. That is why I asked them. ๐Ÿ˜Š
  10. Thank you for your very helpful answer on your experience (not everyone is kind about their answers to people asking questions on CC). We are flying in this week so I will plan on them but will check to be sure. Safe travels!
  11. Does anyone know if this affects execucar? I believe they are owned by SS. TIA.
  12. Tried all of the suggestions here with no good results, unfortunately. Used both a tablet and desk top. How does Princess expect customers to get their documents? Let alone make any changes or even book a cruise? Calling wouldn't help with this unless they can send them to you electronically? Calling is a pain in the a** usually; who has time to sit and wait to get helped? Princess.....fix this!!!
