  1. We were very happy with the Days Inn Inner Harbor. It is 1 block from the airport train stop. It is also across the street from the Convention Center where we took a free bus all around Baltimore. We also enjoyed walking around the Inner Harbor area, lots to see and do. On cruise day, we took a taxi to the cruise terminal, maybe about 15 minutes. There is a great cafe, called Edie's, next to the hotel, where we had breakfast every morning. Highly recommend.
  2. Looks like we'll all be calling Princess or just waiting! See you onboard! Barbara and Orlando
  3. I downloaded the Medallion Class app. It shows all of our information for the Sky TA sailing Nov. 17, 2019. I got our security and profile pictures on there and am now ready to scan our passports to be Ocean Ready. We are both Captain's Circle gold level, but my husband shows gold and I show blue. On our reservations on my desktop computer, we both show gold, which is correct. Is there any way I can fix this on the app without calling Princess?
  4. Thanks so much, we'll be on the Caribbean Princess next Aug., and appreciate your review and photos!
  5. Three years ago, we took a public bus to the cable car station the Casemates Square. We bought tickets and went up to see the Rock on our own. We then took another public bus back to the Casemates Square and walked around there for a while. We enjoyed Gibraltar very much, and the views were magnificent from the top of the Rock.
  6. Great review and photos, thanks so much! Weve been on Seaside twice and loved it! Like you, only Fantastica, not Yacht Club.
  7. Beautiful pictures, thanks so much!
  8. Highly recommend walking the Freedom Trail, we loved it!
  9. Thanks, everyone for all of your help!
  10. Thanks, I did manage to get the OceanReady app on my I-Phone, so now I will take your advice for my I-Pad. This all seems much more complicated than necessary, in my opinion. Oh well, onward and upward!
  11. I have an I-Pad. I have not been able to find the Ocean Ready app in the App Store. In fact, I can't even find any Princess apps in the App Store. Do I have to use my I-Phone instead of my I-Pad? Our cruise is on the Sky Princess, sailing Nov. 17, 2019. Is there another place in the App Store that I should be looking? I don't want to use my I-Phone if I don't have to since the I-Pad is easier for me to see. Thanks for your help.
  12. I have read this same quotation on the Carnival & PLC Shareholder Benefit Request Form, but I have a question for those of you who have used your shareholder onboard credit onboard a Princess cruise. When they say "gratuities", do they mean the gratuities for the cabin steward or only credits/charges and gratuities in the casino. We are new to Princess and are CCL shareholders. Some cruise lines do allow you to use the shareholder onboard credit for cabin steward gratuities, so I want to be very sure. This is especially important since Princess will be increasing the daily gratuity charge from $13.50 P/P (for an inside, OV, and balcony cabin) to $14.50 P/P for all voyages departing on or after May 21, 2019 (this according to an email I received yesterday). Thanks in advance for your help.

    We stayed at the Hotel Mellatti in San Antonio before our cruise. We also used their transportation service from Santiago Airport to the hotel, for a fee, and on the day of the cruise, they took us to the cruise terminal for free. Our room overlooked the port, and the views were amazing. It was easy to walk to the seaside promenade and to the large and modern shopping mall across the street where we ate lunch a the food court. This is a small family owned hotel, and we have never had better customer service anywhere. They were very warm, welcoming, and helpful. The free breakfast in their dining room overlooking the port was delicious also. After a long flight from the U.S., it was very nice to have someone waiting for us at the airport when we arrived. This hotel reminded me of an old Michigan farmhouse, to give you a better idea.
