  1. Points stay....Hilton Bankside. Looked at the Horseguards and great location! Park Plaza Westminster Bridge has rooms with balconies but price never dropped enough. We sure hope to get ahead of the crowds at the War Rooms. First timed prepurchased tickets were 10 am, opens at 9:30 so planning on going early and buying that day. Hope it works out and not 300 other people with same thoughts.
  2. Thank you. We will have 2 nights in London and 1 in Southampton. Visiting the War Rooms, already planned but more excited now after your review, and going to the newly opened Mamma Mia The Party at the O2 -dinner show. Would also like to thank you for always including the smoking areas in your reviews too!
  3. Beautiful train ride! Loving your review. We are leaving Tuesday, headed to London for a Norway northern lights cruise with Princess. This ports isn't on our itinerary but hope to do Norway in a Nutshell one day. We will be visiting Alesund, Tromso, overnighting in Alta and lastly Stavanger.
  4. Maybe try to figure out what time a 11 am M&G Norway time would be CA time and set the reminder for the CA equivalent.
  5. Crown Princess, last fall on a TA: Deck 16 beside Tradewinds bar, covered and set coffee up between 5:30-6 every morning. Also, Deck 7, Speakeasy cigar lounge in the front corner of the casino. Also Promenade deck a wall unit but no seating and one bench on one of the top decks that was too windy to use, completely open. Casino while playing designated slots but not on formal nights.

    I had a 10K slot win last June on the first night of our cruise and had the option of cash OR a check mailed in 6 weeks. Didn't want to chance paperwork getting lost so I took the cash option. Casino personnel told me to bring my passport and pick it up at the cashier with the pink slip they gave me whenever I wanted. I waited until the last afternoon to pick it up. We had family members traveling with us so they carried $2000 off the ship for us.
  7. @Maple30 I'm on the same cruise with you, different tour provider and our guide is doing a picnic lunch for us. Try asking your tour provider if they will be able to do the same for you.
  8. @flutprop After a couple unsuccessful attempts I thought the same thing as you about clearing cookies, using different card, etc. but the person I spoke with said after a failed attempt you need to wait 24 hours before trying again. Also, look on your credit card statement and make sure address is EXACTLY, my problem was typing in Road instead of Rd
  9. You picked a great location as a smoker. The area outside of the One5Lounge is on of the nicer smoking areas on any of Princess' ships. You are right, out the back door and up 2 flights of stairs to get there.
  10. I have complained to the onboard circle host about both passengers have only one choice for exchanging the minibar setup for elite. What if only one of you drink coffee? She said she hadn't thought about that. I wish enough people would complain and they would change the options.
