  1. Hotels "recycle" used bar soap. https://www.foxnews.com/travel/this-is-what-happens-to-half-used-hotel-room-soap
  2. I beg to differ with you on this count. You are welcome to your opinion, but passengers never touch the liquor bottles behind the bar. AND....the alcohol content will kill most mold and germs. Imagine what it is doing to the insides of people. To continue with your words...."drank a shot POURED from them", implies that the liquor is poured out and does not come directly in contact with any one.
  3. When Noro incidents rise because people will not wash their hands after going to the bathroom, Maybe Princess will reconsider this decision. I would be okay with this change....IF...Princess used pre-packaged soap liquid (the same as in the public bathrooms). Few would try to tamper with this dispenser.
  4. They will save money with me. I won't touch those bottles that are "community" share from past passengers. Those little round soaps fit in my go travel containers so nicely. Oh well, just one more cut back. BTW...I have spoken to those vendors that sold such units (at a trade show) and inquired about how sanitary they were. Of course they could not "agree" with me since they were there to sell the products, but did say that it was environmentally better. I rephrased my question and they said that there was no way to "guarantee" that previous visitors did not tamper with the product. Say what you will, I'll just bring my own.
  5. 9 hours ago, schmenge said: 3.) Is it true that we can order an upgraded breakfast in our room? How is that done? Why would anyone give up going to Suite breakfast to eat in their suite? You may order any hot entree ... as long as the MDR is open. It's worth getting up and out to Sabatini's for breakfast every morning!
  6. I found a can of carnation evaporated milk...lactose free. Might be easier to transport. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Pack-3-Lactose-CARNATION-Sweet-Rich-Substitute-Savory-Milk-11-No-Recipes-fl-oz-Free-Lactose-Evaporated-Delicious/646767286?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227256177870&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=302432216321&wl4=aud-566049426705:pla-543506211588&wl5=9032812&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=646767286&veh=sem&gclid=Cj0KCQiA2b7uBRDsARIsAEE9XpG-8s2b49oY42N_Mx8w_pGD94Bwwbxl-Aig9Qk6hFYOxpiSdZZgBYgaAh-pEALw_wcB
  7. I've sent almost everything out. If I have any concerns, I use "dry clean" instead of laundry. Dry Cleaning is not the normal one used on land. I haven't had any problems, but then again, I wouldn't chance sending out really good stuff. Best part about suite laundry is that it will come back within 36 hours.
  8. Legally...."a bunch of kids" underaged, can not be all in the same cabin without an "adult". How many rooms were incorrectly assigned? This sounds like a nightmare. Good luck.
  9. I agree that the Canal Experience will be better on HAL (historic locks), but Caribbean Princess (new locks) will have more to do.
  10. I've never had a problem charging $$ from the casino to my onboard account. A long while back, some number cruncher said it was too difficult for Princess to program their debit ledger to decide which OBC's would be applied where. There's credit and debit recorded each day. The account will note which is non-refundable and it will be used up first. Other than that, I've been able to use the funds in the casino. Now....someday...Princess will stop this practice and we will all be very sad.
  11. Don't forget that the tips are tiered. Some get a higher/smaller percentage than others. But thanks for doing the math. Regardless of what they get, they earn EVERY penny that I give them and more. I have yet to run across a grump (except for one headwaiter) or sour puss on all of my cruises.
  12. I read a different story (and may have missed the one you are referring to), but thought the ship was refused entry because of measles. On my last cruise, I asked why we didn't have to fill out the "sick" form any longer. The agent told me that no one told the truth anyway.
  13. I rarely go to the buffet (personal choice). Your head waiter in the main dining room and Crown Grill (maybe Sabatini's) "may" have access to themed MDR nights. I've asked so that I can plan my Crown Grill visits. Interesting take ... I don't care for Italian or American night. Best to check the menu outside the MDR to plan on your buffet runs.
  14. Rhapsody is one of their best! very interactive performers. i do miss the classical group on West Coast voyages. A miked acoustical guitar is not an even exchange.
  15. You are really a long way from home. Safe travels and enjoy your cruise.
