  1. Thanks for the tips on things we can to do, kiwijo. Much appreciated! We may just take the cable car and then walk through the botanical garden. I’ve heard it is beautiful. With the shops closed at least we’ll save a little money! 😉
  2. Thanks for the encouragement! If we can get off the ship around 8 a.m. I think we should be OK, but I'll probably be stressing until we're at the gate. We were in LA in August for a couple Dodgers games, so well-aware of the crazy traffic. Just hope there are no major accidents.
  3. We will be taking our first transpacific cruise on Princess Golden leaving Sydney in April. Our stop in Wellington is on Easter Sunday, and I'm wondering if most shops and tourist attractions may be closed. Can one of you New Zealanders give me the scoop? Thanks!
  4. What would be the earliest time we could disembark our Princess ship arriving in San Pedro at 6:15 am? We would be handling our own luggage. Also, we will probably take Uber to LAX and have a flight departure time of 11:30 am. Is this cutting it a little too close? This will be on a Wednesday, so I know the traffic can be a bear. Thanks in advance for your help.
  5. We are doing a cruise on the Golden in April 2020 and received an email a couple months ago explaining that MadellionNet will not be available as originally announced. As the poster above noted, the transfer of the ship to P&O likely is the reason.
  6. Thanks for the response, CruiserBruce. I've checked a few of the other threads and agree that nothing seems to confirm that shuttles are available. Guess we'll just plan to Uber to the rental place. Thanks!
  7. Our ship will be arriving in Lahaina in April 2020 and we want to rent a car for the day. However, it looks like the information in this thread may be for those coming into Kahului. Does anyone know if any of the Lahaina car rental places provide shuttle from the port? When I google the question, I see conflicting information so trying to find the straight scoop! Thanks.
  8. Thanks for the menu, Ombud. Very helpful!
  9. I’m debating whether to get the coffee card, so this thread has been helpful. I’m not a constant coffee drinker but like a good cup in the morning and a latte every once in awhile. Can someone tell me the cost of a brewed cup of coffee and a latte at the IC? We’ll be on the Golden for a 29 day cruise in April. Thanks!
  10. Thank you all for your responses! It sounded like a great deal but guess we will just have to lug some water on board if we decided to bring some. I've heard the water on the ship is perfectly fine, so I'll probably just bring a water bottle and fill it as needed. I've seen warnings not to fill the water bottle directly from the dispenser, so I'll be sure to fill a cup and then pour it into the bottle. Got to watch those nasty germs!
  11. I went back again and checked, but when I scroll down to the bottom it only shows the beer options. We are boarding in Sydney Australia for a trip through the South Seas ending up in LA. Maybe the bottled water is not an option for ships sailing out of Australia?
  12. I've read on the board that bottled water can be pre-ordered to be delivered to your cabin upon embarkation. I've been searching on the Princess website but cannot find it listed. Can someone tell me where the ordering information is on their website? I've searched in the beverage package section and even gift shop services, but no luck so far. Thanks for your help!
  13. Just received the email, too. My question on CC was just before the email came through. Bummer!
  14. We will be on the Golden sailing from Sydney to Los Angeles in April 2020. Previously I read that the Golden would be getting MedallionNet by December 2019, but that is no longer indicated on the latest announcement from Princess. I'm thinking they may have decided not to do it since the ship is being sold. That would really be disappointing since I was looking forward to a good internet connection. Does anyone know the latest scoop?
  15. Thank you all for the fantastic advice and tips - very helpful! And sorry to all you Aussies for misspelling Sydney. My brain knew better so I blame it on my fingers! Can't wait to see your beautiful city.
