  1. Hope you have a great cruise! Do they have crew serving in the buffet or is it help yourself?
  2. I think I will talk to the head waiter this time. I usually don't want to make a fuss, but my choices can end up being very limited. With a few modifications I would be just fine. Thanks!
  3. We are cruising in a few weeks on the Eastern itinerary. I haven't heard too much about the casino. I understand that it is open while at Princess Cay. I also read that it is open at 5PM on the St. Thomas day (the ship leaves at 10PM). Can someone verify that it does indeed open on those port days. That is very unusual. Also, is it true that the casino is non smoking on formal nights? Nice! I am a slot player. Is there a nice selection of popular slots? My DH plays table games and Texas Holdem. Is there a live Texas Holdem table on the Sky or is it electronic? Any info is appreciated. Thanks!
  4. I am loving your review! So much great information. We sail on the Sky in 5 weeks.
  5. Yes, I have been enjoying reading her review! That's where I saw the menus. Thought I would be eating in the buffet all week, but if I can make some adjustment in the MDR, I can eat there. I don't have any food allergies, but I can't eat raw veggies or rich sauces anymore. That leaves out my beloved salads and cream soups and most pasta dishes. Being able to have multiple meat/seafood entrees with the sauce on the side would be great. I like the idea of ordering an entrée as an appetizer size. I will give the MDR a try!
  6. Search feature didn't help and we haven't been on Princess in a few years. We are going on the Sky. I've seen some MDR dinner menus and with my food limitations, it looked like two entrees would work for me on several nights. I'd skip the appetizers and pasta. I'm pretty sure this will be fine, but want to make sure. Thanks!
  7. Any information about it? Every night or only a few times? Tasty or just okay? Planks serving size looks huge! Could you share instead of getting 2 dinners? Thanks!
  8. Looking forward to hearing your review. We will be on the Sky in April.
  9. Are the mini suite tubs deep? Are there any grab handles to help with stepping in and out when using it as a shower? Do they have those non slip mats to use or should I bring one? I am not as spry as I used to be. Lol. Thanks!
  10. Headed out on the Sky in a few weeks. I skip around cruise lines and the search feature didn't help me out. I don't remember the options on Princess. We don't like to carry tons of cash with us. I gamble on the slots, my DH on the tables. Can you charge your cabin without any surcharge? Usually you can on the slots, but not on the tables. What are the limits for this option? If I buy OBC can it be used in the casino? I saw the option of buying casino credits, but why not just use OBC? It would certainly be more flexible to use on other onboard options. Again, is there a charge to get chips at the table? Also, is the OBC refundable? You never know, we might have some good luck and not need the funds! 😁 With either OBC or charge your cabin feature do you get true cash or just fun play or fun chips? Lastly, could someone explain the medallion app gambling feature? Can you use it only when the casino is open? Anyone like the app or do you think it's a rip off?
  11. Does anyone have a copy of the current 7 day menu? I am going on the Sky in a few weeks. Will the Ocean App have the menus, too?
  12. Does it have to be in cans? We are pre ordering some alcohol and soda (for DH), but they don't have cranberry that you can order for the room. I will be using cranberry juice as a mixer, but they only have plastic bottles at the grocery store.
  13. Well dang. Looking forward to your review, but we are also on this sailing. Hoping that the few sailings before ours have reviews full of great info. So curious and excited about this ship. We have an aft corner Excel suite in January and an ocean suite with larger balcony in May.
  14. We usually book either military discount or casino offer. For far out cruises we usually book military because it is fully refundable and matches early saver. Our casino offers are a bit cheaper but the deposits aren't refundable. Has anyone noticed that the military rates are now "early saver" with non-refundable deposits? The military rate is just a few dollars less than the normal early saver. Very disappointed about this to say the least!
