  1. Use a credit card and always charge in the country's currency. Do not convert to dollars. Every time you exchange the excess foreign currency you lose money.
  2. It is only on the ship and since there is no notification you must periodically check it. I seem to remember that texting someone at home using cell phone is about 50 cents and receiving is cheaper.
  3. Currently Princess has a round trip between either LA or SF to Hawaii. The last stop after the islands is Mexico to follow the law. If someone missed the ship in the mainland could they legally fly to Hawaii and miss 1/3 of the cruise? Now it is no longer a round trip (or is it). What would happen if the cruise ran in reverse. Could you either fly to Ensenada or Hawaii within the law and catch the ship?
  4. I have had it in the past but it is too much food for lunch. I want it for dinner.
  5. A few weeks ago I noticed a post indicating that the Crab Shack was being offered for lunch. I hope not. What is the latest on it?
  6. Can you have more than one glass of wine at dinner with the Premier Beverage Package? It does indicate up to $12 but is that a total or per drink during a certain period of time? Does every adult in the cabin have to get the package?
  7. Grand Princess has announced that MedallionNet internet is now available for a flat fee. Are the free minutes of slow internet still available for Platinum and above? I only have to check email once in a while. I do not need streaming.
  8. There are 2 ship tours and none are on the first day. A free one does very little other than go in one kitchen door and out the other. The ultimate ship tour for $150 goes behind the scenes everywhere. You also get gifts such as photos, a robe, an apron, personalized note pad and a few more things.
  9. I print them at exactly 75 days out. It shows that I am really going.
  10. There is a 10% store discount which can be a lot on jewelry and watches.
  11. You can print anything when the print command is available. They charge you by the page.
  12. You can use an online fax service for free and have the proof at Princess in seconds. Free Fax • Free Internet Faxing Free Fax • Online Fax Service

  14. Can you hint on what you mean by "puzzle"? Is it on paper? Are there physical objects in a room? Why would they charge?
  15. Has anyone done an escape room or murder mystery onboard? Can you post any details without giving away any secrets? For example cost, length of time, solo or group, etc.
