  1. We booked a mini guarantee on our last transatlantic. 2 days before sailing we were upgraded and assigned to a Club Class mini. We were excited to try it at no additional cost. To be fair we are elite, so some of the perks were of no consequence as we got them already. So to us the real benefits were the two 1/2 bottles of wine and the dining. The wine, no biggie, not a deal breaker either way. The dining, was nice, but... The service was wonderful. The "extra" dish was hit or miss. But where we ran into a problem was it's limitation. We ended up meeting and becoming friend with another couple onboard. We played trivia together, went to cocktail hour and really enjoyed their company. Halfway through the cruise they asked us to join them for dinner. Do we say, oh no, we'd rather eat in our special dining room alone or do we join them and enjoy their company. Of course we chose to join them. We had a lovely time eating with them for the rest of the cruise, had excellent service and meals, as well. So the moral of my story is, Club Class is nice, but to me, not worth paying extra for. As I said the service was excellent, the food was comparable to the MDR, with the exception of the "extra" dish, which sometimes we chose and sometimes not. I'll gladly accept a free upgrade if one comes my way, but I would not put the extra money into it.

  3. It's fall and no signs of the new cocktail menu. I don't even see it come up on the website. Did they change their mind?
  4. It was the category we booked, which is fine with me. No upgrade, but I booked what I'd be happy with. We always book guarantees, (29th cruise), but this is the longest we've gone without an assignment.
  5. Crown, just got a room! Yea!! I can print luggage tags now
  6. We booked a Mini guarantee, we sail in 4 days, no room assignment yet. Mini's and Suites are sold out. What are they waiting for? I only check the personalizer 5 or 6 times a day. Arrrrgh....
  7. I'm not sure what you are replying to, I am not at all concerned about going hungry. I was simply asking about how the reservation system works on anytime dining. This will be my 29th Princess cruise and I have never been hungry on a cruise yet. We have had anytime dining and stood in line, as I said, I was wondering about the reservation system, not where or when I'd get fed
  8. If you make a reservation in anytime dining, does it have to be for a table to accommodate the number in your party (ie., 2, 4, etc_) or can you reserve a table to share?
  9. What did you ask for at the bar to get a "shake"? I assume it could it be a Boozy shake if you have sip'n sail?
  10. I've never left a Princess cruise hungry or lighter :D
