    Regal Princess Library

    The key, as already mentioned, is getting to the library as soon as you board. If you go the next day, it will be empty. Then it starts to fill up again as the cruise progresses and people finish their books. On our recent sailing on the Sea Princess (28 days), the library was empty until about halfway into the cruise. Then it began to fill up with no room on the shelves for all the books that were left. That said, whoever was in charge of the library wasn't doing their job. The organization was awful, like non-fiction in the fiction section.

    Loss of Internet Rollover Benefit on B2B Cruises?

    I think it depends on whether it was booked as a B2B or as one long cruise which was actually two segments.

    Visa Requirements

    While I agree that your statement is accurate, I always recommend a passport. If something happens and the OP has to fly home before the end of the cruise, I believe a passport will be required for re-entry into the US.

    Visa service - China, Cambodia, Vietnam

    Both Cambodia and Vietnam visas can be done online. The e-visas are supposed to be available in about 3 days. I am currently waiting for them for me and my husband. My Vietnam visa came in 2 days (got an email it was processed). Tomorrow is 3 days and I'm expecting (hoping? lol) the remaining 3 will be available.

    Problems Australia VISA

    If, when you went through the process, you got a notification your visa was approved, you are all set. I printed it off but didn't need the printouts when we went through immigration in September

    Just Returned - Sea Princess - Around Australia

    A lot 😞 Check out the picture in this post ... stairs between theater levels. We climbed down these but there were a similar number of steps we climbed up in one climb. But if you can, don't let that stop you. I was recovering from a hamstring injury and walking with a cane. I just took my time. http://www.travelsnippetsandmore.com/2018/11/around-australia-cruise-day-2-in-sydney.html

    Hong Kong Port to Airport Transfers

    The station referred to is the Kowloon station. You can take a taxi there. I think the train costs about US$15 per person. A taxi from port to airport will run about US$45. Hope all this helps with your decision.

    No Show vs cancellation

    The second person is already paid for. Should not be any single supplement. Princess already has 2 paid fares for that cabin

    Just Returned - Sea Princess - Around Australia

    Thanks so much for the blog/photos compliment. Based on conversations I had with others, it was AUD$5. We only had ice cream in the MDR which in my (and my husband's) opinion is fair. I wanted to try the NZ ice cream to compare. The AUD$5 didn't stop me ... just the fact that the right opportunity never presented itself.

    Europe's Imperial Treasures tour Aug. 2019

    We did a tour with Princess through Switzerland and enjoyed it very much. Hotels were clean and comfortable and 'in town.' I wouldn't hesitate to do another tour with them.

    Club Class dining no longer Shared tables

    We've had mostly great shared tables. On our last cruise, our table was awful, not just because of the people but because of the location. Spoke to the maitre 'd about changing. Next night we were at a table for 6 with a delightful group of 4 sailing together. We had a wonderful dining experience. Just have to ask. We've never had a problem with a change and have ended up with great tables.
