  1. Has anyone bought a wine package on any Princess ship lately? Is it even offered any more? Any help is appreciated!
  2. Wondering if anyone who has been on the Crown this past summer can tell me if the Wine Package was offered. We are headed there next week for the transatlantic. My understanding is that if offered they only have the Gold Tier? Does anyone know the level of price per bottle and the current costs and number of bottles included? Thank you in advance for your help!
  3. Not in the atrium but my husband and I enjoyed going to the bar at the Bayou Cafe for a glass of wine before dinner. Doesn't have the wine list like Vines but a nice spot for a glass of wine. They sometimes have a musician playing/singing for the bar and restaurant guests. Never too loud, just some nice predinner or dinner time music. Never crowded.
  4. Cruising out of New York (Red Hook) in the fall and was given the name of a car service to use from hotel near LGA to Red Hook. Just wondering if anyone has used this service and what your experience was like. Would you use them again? The company is Arecibo Car Service out of Brooklyn.Thanks for your help!
  5. Looking over the deck plans and do not see a laundry room on Plaza forward. Star, Ruby, Crown etc all have a small laundry room. Can anyone confirm if there is none on the Golden? Thank you in advance!
  6. Thank you! Will see the Maitr'D. I appreciate your help.
  7. Looking forward to our first Cunard cruise in September from New York to Southampton. My husband has some slight communication issues so we have requested a table for 2, Second Seating for dinner but was wondering if there are tables for 2 for afternoon tea? Thank you in advance for your help!
  8. Just disembarked the Emerald Princess on May 3 in Ft. Lauderdale. My DH and I ordered our usual Mimosas and specialty tea along with 2 bottles of water with no charge. Same thing we ordered on our last morning in January on the Emerald, the Ruby in December and the Crown in November and have never been charged.
  9. We were on the same cruise and received our Patters every evening. Unfortunately it sounds like the problem was with your room steward. I would have called or visited Passenger Services to fix the problem. We went to the late shows in Princess Theater and never had a problem finding seats even though we went in about 10-15 minutes before the start of the show. Had a great cruise! Great crew all over the ship!
  10. Yon should start by calling the number you were given. If it goes to their voice mail, press zero to be transferred to someone. Explain your situation and ask to be reassigned to a new PVP. Any problems, ask to speak with a supervisor. I don't mind referring you to my PVP but she can't take you if you are already assigned to someone (no stealing customers from other PVP's). But you can ask to be reassigned. I have been booking with PVP's for 10 years and have been happy with my service.
  11. Our current PVP has "found" some additional OBC on several of our upcoming cruises and lower prices on certain cruises than what was showing on Princess website. My husband gets an additional discount on some cruises with the Casino Rates. She always looks first if this is available. We have been surprised on some of the discounts she has found for us. We have only had her for less than six months but are very happy with her service. On our last cruise, she even surprised me with chocolate covered strawberries for my birthday. Never had a PVP do that before. We hope to continue booking cruises through her for a long time.
  12. Love paella! And yes, since the ship is in port until 11PM we are thinking a late lunch. Looking at those that have been suggested as well as searching on tripadvisor. Thank you for your help/suggestions.
  13. Thank you for the reply. I will check Tripadvisor. Do you think there is something within walking distance in the Ramblas area?
  14. Will be in Barcelona for the day on Tuesday, 11/6 from the Crown Princess, and thought lunch somewhere would be nice. Any suggestions on place and local cuisine to try? Appreciate any help!
  15. We canceled a cruise for December and booked a cruise for January. Our Princess planner moved our FCD from the old cruise to the new cruise even though our initial booking was a nonrefundable deposit.
