  1. Loving the details ! We are addicted to new ships too (5 maiden cruises from the 3 different lines in recent years) but have a great love for Sapphire Princess as she was our first - interested to find out what you think!
  2. Yes I have always ordered the Tarantina without the mussels and capers on all 4 Royal Class ships without any problems. Reminds me of a pizza I used to eat as a student - heaven! You don't get many pizzas with shrimp over here in the UK 🙂 Sandra
  3. Yes, they have the pasta dishes: And the calzone and desserts: And the appetizers: Sandra
  4. That's the crew's pool - I recall seeing them relaxing in it from our forward facing suite window. Hence not on the plans. Sandra
  5. The CD held a couple of crowd trivia sessions in the Piazza on the Sky Princess Med Inaugural where you got thrown a Stanley Bear to hold and had to answer 5 of his trivia questions in a row to win a prize. Lots of shouting and sharing of answers but good fun. This was alongside standard trivia though. Sandra
  6. Also, if dining at a specialty dining venue, a large bottle of water (one liter) of still or sparkling is now covered by the package. We made good use of this on our Sky Inaugural. Sandra
  7. Full Onda menu We didn't really like the food to be honest - preferred La Cucina on the Bliss. Sandra and Chris
  8. Thank you so much @FloaterBoat - we get so much from being part of the CC Princess community that we wanted to pay it forward 🙂 Sandra and Chris
  9. It was always lowered at night by the steward but yes, Chris managed to lower it for a couple of our afternoon naps. Blocked the light out nicely. We loved that suite - felt really spoiled. The shower was worth the extra cost alone - so spacious with a powerful shower head and a separate detachable wand. Sandra and Chris
  10. See the post here Plus there is this fancy view of the bedroom below
  11. So we got home at 9:15pm last night and it's now 6am and we are getting ready for the working day. Gah! We chatted to various fellow passengers in the Elite disembarkation lounge and at the airport so thought we would play some of it back... - one Elite couple thought the quality of the MDR food wasn't good enough. We thought it was great. - one couple pre-booked the Crown Grill for 7:30pm but the lines on the second formal night were so bad with big groups they couldn't get in for their time and so cancelled and went to the MDR instead. They got a refund. - a few went to see Rock Opera which only played on the final night. They all loved it. It was standing room only. There isn't a narrative (which we knew and is what we prefer). -one couple had only cruised Celebrity before and loved the ship, they were already looking to book another Princess cruise 🙂 Someone on this week's cruise mentioned that there is a Library Book Cart being made available at the Princess LIve Cafe between 9 and 9:30am and 3:45pm and 4:15pm. Sandra and Chris -
  12. No - we only got them back at the end of the cruise. Felt a bit uncomfortable going into different countries without them in case if an emergency for example Sandra and Chris
  13. Yes they took them in Athens at the port just after security and before boarding - first time for us too. Sandra and Chris
