  1. Princess changed the terms & conditions since the re-start in August. Room service plus some other revisions were made. Room service is now included in the beverage package. Prior to the re-start room service was excluded.
  2. It has been reported that there will be web based options end Oct. or November. with dine my options to follow later. So you will have time. You may want to keep this telephone number, 1 844 525 0942. This is the current contact number for those that do not have smart phones or devices.
  3. You nailed it. Royal Class ships lack sufficient lounges. Seating is limited especially when the passenger crowd preference is to stay for a long evening. The two newer Royal Class ships, Enchanted and Discovery have added additional lounges. They have brought back Crooner's, missing on the Majestic and Sky. They have also turned Princess Live into a table & chair venue eliminating the poorly designed studio seating you saw on the Regal. Club 6 has been changed into a jazz club with better lounge seating than the Club 6 bench seating you saw on the Regal. It is beyond me how Princess can make these kind of design mistakes. It is as if none of the decision makers have ever been on board a cruise ship for an actual voyage.
  4. Club Class mini suites are mini suites with a few extra amenities the most important of which is club class dining. Full suite passengers receive full suite amenities which includes club class dining, special breakfast, a concierge lounge on royal class ships and many others benefits. Most full suites have balconies, but there are a few ships that have a limited number of full suites without balconies (window suites). Passengers in these window suite cabins are entitled to the same benefits as full suite passengers in cabins with balconies.
  5. Go to the Princess Cruises web site. Select On Board Our Ships, then deck plans, and then Royal Princess. Standard balcony size is 9ft. x 4ft. for most cabins. You will be able to spot cabins with larger balconies and angled balconies as you search each deck. Click on the cabin and it will show the category as well as any differences, such as angled balcony, connecting cabin and so on.
  6. No question here app is very poorly designed. Re-read post #13 regarding visual impairment. We have the same issue. Only one of us are able to read a phone screen, thus one phone. Princess needs to fix this problem.
  7. Looks like the full suite breakfast on the Grand is in the Crown Grill. Refer to posting #5 in this thread.
  8. Remember club class dining is mid ship on deck 6. If your full suite is aft then you have to either go to the mid ship elevators on your deck, or take the aft elevators down to deck 7, then make your way to the mid ship elevators to take you to deck 6. No direct access to deck 6 mid ship from the aft elevators.
  9. If you enjoy sitting in a comfortable area with a nice reserved lounge you may enjoy The Sanctuary, deck 6 all the way forward. There is a fee for this area, $20/half Day, $40/full day. Go directly there once you board to book. International Cafe deck 5 is a great place. No charge for food. Specialty coffee drinks available there. There is a charge for specialty coffees unless you have booked the plus fare that includes these beverages. Indoor pool is the Calypso Pool. If you like a more peaceful pool experience try the Terrace Pool, deck 12 aft.
  10. No app required to unlock the cabin door. This tech. not connected to the app.
  11. Our TA notified us July 29th by forwarding a copy of the notification they received from Princess. Would wager your TA received the same notices around the same time and just didn't pay attention. We also received a direct e-mail from Princess on the same date.
  12. Agree with the poster. It is a basic concept fault to assume every passenger is on their own with their own smart device and that families or those linked don't order together. This needs to be fixed if Princess wishes to have passengers use ocean now. Better to just order from a waiter.
  13. True. 9ft x 6ft balconies, uncovered. You will be fine. These are very nice cabins, and if you booked one of the 34 mid ship category M1 cabins you will have club class amenities including club class dining. The only mini suites on the Ruby that have covered balconies are the 12 cabins aft on deck 8. Note all of the deck 8 minis on the Ruby are connecting cabins with interior connecting doors.
