  1. Years ago we had a roll call with close to 100 members. It has slowly decreased over the years. With 3 months left my current roll call has 12.
  2. It is no longer fun since you can get get tablets that will track more games than you can do manually. Anyone getting paper cards and a dauber will have a very low chance of winning. Maybe the next step will have no one attending the drawing. You will just be notified what you won which be credited to your account.
  3. The cost is $95 and is lower without wine. Here is the menu from a past dinner. It takes about 3 hours. You get everything on the menu. Chef’s Table Menu Grand Princess October 5, 2015 First Course, French Champaign & Hor’s d’ouvres in the Galley Alaskan Crab Legs and Lobster Margarita with Avocado Mango and Lime Tartare of Sterling Silver Beef Fillet with Traditional Condiments Mini Qioche Fontina Cheese with Black Truffle and Sun-Dried Tomatoes Warm Potato Timbale with Caviar and Sour Cream *** Italian Seafood Risotto with Creamy Fresh Tomato Sauce Pan Roasted Shrimps, Calamari, Mussels and Scallops *** “Amalfi” Lemon Sorbet with Pineapple Slaw *** Roast Lobster Tail, Veal Shank & Beef Tenderloin, Carved Table Side With Cepes and Jus, Today’s Premium Market Vegatables and Chateau Potatoes *** Baked Camembert with Pine Nuts Port Wine Reduction and Walnut Bread *** Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse with Carmel Cream and Milk Chocolate Crunch *** Coffee or Tea with Executive Chef Jeremy’s Homemade Amaretto & Biscotti Buon Appetite
  4. Sometimes. I enjoy the trivia and sometimes there is a continuous one. If in conflict I attend the trivia.
  5. What is the current reasonable tip per bag? Have you ever traveled with others in the same car and only paid a tip for your own bag? I had a porter get upset until I clearly stated that the tip was just for my one bag and someone else will tip for the others.
  6. I am pretty sure that they clear all files after the cruise. There is probably no way to find a specific photo without you selecting it while on board.
  7. Can it be easily removed? What about socks? I am debating if I should have new underwear laundered on the ship.
  8. How does Princess mark your laundry? Is it an easily removable tag or do they just keep everything in a washable bag with an ID.
  9. Be sure to go to the roll call for your cruise. There you will find other members on your cruise and be able to coordinate any activities.
  10. My bank credit card pays me much more cash than the value of any Cruise Card. I just obtained the Princess credit card since it gives you $100 for use on a Princess cruise (payment or OBC) after you make your first charge. Other than that I will never use it again.
  11. You will love Princess. I sailed on Carnival twice and hated it. I usually travel with my sister and her husband and we are all 70 and above.
  12. As long as there is no promotion such a free OBC, paid gratuities, etc. you can usually ask for the lower price. If there was an attached promotion you may lose it. If they say a lower price is only for new reservations you can always cancel and rebook but you may lose your preferred cabin. The next step up from balcony cabin is a mini-suite.
  13. Is the Dine Line phone number still "D I N E". I want to make a Chefs Table reservation as soon as I board.
  14. Some ships now have brewed coffee at what was the ice cream stand on the Lido Deck.
  15. The closest thing is a lounge for platinum and elites for hors d'oeuvres before dinner with a few lower price drinks but nowhere a dollar.
