  1. I booked through Princess and was wondering if it costs anything to change my cabin type. Currently booked in an oceanview and looking at changing to a balcony on our Feb cruise. Prices are good right now but I don't want to pay a "change" fee, just the price difference. I would be calling Princess to make the change but don't want to busy up their lines if I can get question answered here. Thanks in advance.
  2. Basically the same for me. LOVE being at sea, surrounded by water. LOVE unpacking once and waking up in a new place every day. LOVE all the food options and not having to cook or do dishes. LOVE the piazza and sitting with a cup of coffee and pastry enjoying the entertainment. LOVE it ALL! Cant wait till Feb 1st when we are scheduled to cruise again!
  3. I never received a call back from Princess so we were in our Caribe balcony for the cruise. Just got back yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed our time onboard and were happy to have been in our balcony cabin.
  4. I did as soon as I saw the email (which was actually 3 hours after it was sent, so I may have missed the boat--no pun intended).
  5. They sent me an email with a number to call. The number is a voicemail that asks for your information and says they will call you back in the order received and within 2 business days. Since its Friday, and our cruise is Monday, there is only a few hours left in the day today for them to call me back. Will definitely take it if they call me but not disappointed if they don't. Looking forward to our Caribe balcony. I'll keep you posted if I hear back from Princess.
  6. I did call back and left my info on their voicemail. Will be happy if we hear back and happy if we don't! Either way, we cruise in 2 days!
  7. Just got the coveted move over offer for our cruise departing on Monday. We are in a Caribe balcony (bigger balcony) on the Crown Princess and received the move over to an oceanview for 100% refundable onboard credit (cost of cruise). Considering it but know I need to act fast! Any opinions?
  8. As a seasoned cruiser who has been on Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and Princess, I have to say my favorite thing about Princess is the Self Serve Laundry on board (complete with irons). Being able to pack less and do laundry mid way through the cruise just makes me happy! I hate doing laundry at home but actually don't mind it at all onboard Princess. I always bring my own detergent pods and dryer sheets. My second favorite thing is MUTS (Movies Under The Stars) and third is the International Cafe. Oh, and my fourth would be the military onboard credit! Time to share! Whats your favorite thing that sets Princess apart from other Cruise Lines?
  9. We are going on the Crown in less than a week. I will check the stores onboard for this magnet and get you one if you are still in need of one from the Crown.
  10. We enjoy the same! Honestly don't care where the ship goes, we just enjoy the ship!
  11. We always stay at the Hyatt Place, Convention Center 17th St. It is right across parking lot from several restaurants and a publix grocery store. They have very inexpensive shuttle to and from airport and to the cruise port. IF you are a hyatt loyalty member you get free breakfast and its not bad. The sun trolley also stops in front of the publix grocery store and will take you to the beach for $1 if that is somewhere you want to go. The rooms are a little more spacious than a regular hotel room as they have a half wall separating a living area with a couch.
  12. We always stay at the Hyatt Place on 17th Street and love it. They have a shuttle to and from airport and also a shuttle for $7 each to the cruise port. They are right across the parking lot from several restaurants and a publix grocery store. The Sun Trolley stops here and will take you to the beach for $1 per person (kids under 40 " are half price). Website for sun trolley is www.suntrolley.com. The hotel also includes free breakfast if you are a hyatt loyalty member (free to join and can do it online when you book your room or beforehand). The rooms are mini suites with a couch separated by a half wall and either 2 queen beds or a king. Very spacious for your family.
  13. We have cruised Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and Princess. We primarily cruise Princess. We are in our mid 50's and love the quieter, laid back vibe on Princess. I think your parents would really love the entertainment on Princess, especially the music in the Piazza. There is definitely an older crowd.
  14. Could you elaborate? Im curious to know why.
