  1. Good luck with that! 😂 For breakfast I always ask for 2 strips of crispy bacon, one fried egg over medium and one soft roll. Have yet to receive that. It's always at least five strips of bacon so, of course, I need to order ANOTHER soft roll because....who can leave bacon on the plate to get thrown out!!!!
  2. We were there last May. Got off the ship, bought our ticket from Olden Adventures and were thrilled to be on the first lift up. It was a gorgeous day BUT.....the Skylift is at quite an elevation and we rose into the clouds and saw NOTHING. People who went in the afternoon said it was gorgeous. Just be aware, being the early bird will help you avoid the lines/crowds but in the end it wasn't worth it for us.
  3. Definitely have never seen caffeine-free Diet Coke which would be our preference.
  4. The only thing I've brought on board, aside from "packaged" food is bakery items in Norway and there was no problem.
  5. Hasn't YOUR state experienced increased crime? Unfortunately, it's a world wide problem, not likely to improve in the near future.
  6. The curry sauce would totally gross me out! 🤮 However, after visiting Amsterdam I'm quite partial to mayo with my fries! 😋
  7. We have received numerous offers to bid for an upgrade on our May 31st Caribbean Princess cruise BUT....we like the cabin/location we now have and I've read that you have no choice of location once your bid was accepted. It's a big no for us.
  8. When was this changed? We bought euros with U.S. dollars on board Enchanted Princess in September and others noted above that Princess did indeed allow the purchase of euros.
  9. You definitely need reservations at Dancing Man Brewery and this can be done online. We tried a month in advance last year for a Friday night and they were fully booked. This year we booked two months in advance and got a reservation for a Thursday night.
  10. I would rather REQUEST rather than demand. It will probably get you further.
  11. OP booked direct with Princess.
  12. One of our worst cruises was when people circumvented the "rules" and put their teens unsupervised in the cabin next to ours and the parents were a safe distance away. What a nightmare for us.
  13. We knew Santorini was a MUST for us when we were planning a vacation and read that often cruise ships can't make it in to port. For this reason we did a Greece land vacation and it was fantastic. Pays to do research and know what's important to you.
  14. Have never heard of ANY ships closing International Cafe! Room service breakfast is complimentary.
  15. Also the only NEXUS holders in our family but still interesting post.
  16. Prices are up worldwide. Our private Iceland tours for June are much more expensive than last year BUT.....isn't everyone, in every country, complaining about the cost of groceries? If you're comfortable with only cruiseline excursions, bite the bullet and stop comparing prices to the good old days. Those days are GONE. Better to pay the asking price than come home missing out on experiences you were looking forward to.
  17. We are Canadian and use Telus. We got a good offer but it specifically says it is NOT available on a cruise so best check.
  18. We sail Princess and always get two of the MUTS blankets to keep on hand in the cabin. Handy for afternoon naps and sitting on the balcony if it's a bit cool.
  19. We needed wifi when our ports were cancelled in Iceland and were able to purchase a day pass to contact the tour operator. Maybe your parents should consider an esim. We are in our late 70's and have purchased airolo for our last 3 cruises. It does NOT work on the ship and we have actually had to disembark the ship to use the data on shore but it's very reasonably priced and even I found it easy to install/use.
  20. We had a nice lunch in Vondelpark; very relaxing. We are not into museums but a visit to see the outside around Rijksmuseum is beautiful and worth the walk. Be sure to enjoy the fries!
  21. You can request Indian food from your dining room Manager the day before. I asked for Chicken Marsala and was shocked when Chicken Masala was delivered! That missing R made a world of difference! 😱
  22. With a beverage package, even if it DID count (which it doesn't) that would still leave you with 19/18 alcoholic drinks per day!
  23. In cruising in cooler temperatures a sofa is a must for us since more people stay indoors and public venues can be really crowded. We don't like mini-suites as we prefer a shower to a tub but, on our upcoming Caribbean Princess cruise, aside from suites that was the only option with a sofa.
