  1. Hi can anyone tell me where the Captains Circle desk is located on the Majestic Princess. There is no indication of it on the deck plans. Also can bottled water be purchased aboard the Majestic Princess and taken ashore in New Zealand. and how much per bottle. Or have you purchased it in Sydney Au and taken it ashore in New Zealand. If so where did you purchase it close to Circular Quay. Thanks for any help counting down the days until were board.
  2. Hi We took an up sell to a suite and as part of the up sell we received a free balcony breakfast for 2 people any day we wished to have it delivered. The mini bar is included on the suit pdf. Hope you enjoy your suite we really enjoyed ours.
  3. Hi Thanks everyone for the information. I am sailing with Princess on the Majestic Princess in January and February. Have not brought wine on before. This time I thought we might. As we are in Sydney a few days prior to the cruise and there is a place to buy wine close by where we are staying and close to the cruise terminal. Not looking for a padded bag just a bag that would hold a couple of bottles. We got a promotional one here in Ontario Canada for buying wine from Jacobs Creek. We found a few New Zealand wine at the wine store. Looking forward to coming down under only have 141 more days to go.
  4. Hi can you buy Cloudy Bay wine in Australia. Want to purchase it take on ship when embarking in Sydney at Circular Quay Found it here in Canada and for the Chardonnay it is $35.00 per bottle. Can you tell me how much it is there and where to purchase this wine or similar near Circular Quay. Also is the corkage fee $15.00 AUD when sailing from Sydney to New Zealand. Or $15.00 USD converted to AUD Do we need to bring our own bags for the wine. A lot of places in Ontario Canada now are not giving out plastic bags you are required to bring your own. Thanks for any help.

  6. Hi Has anyone tried the new classic soda package now offered. How were the smoothies. Were there many flavors. Also does anyone know if you can get your hair cut for a female on board ship and the approximate price. I looked on the cruise personalizer and there was nothing offered under the spa services. We will be sailing on the Majestic Princess out of Sydney in January 2020.
  7. Hi sailed on the port side same section on the Island Princess. I am assuming the Coral Princess is the same. The balcony is large and half covered by the upper deck. Gives easy access to all points on the ship. You got a good upgrade. Enjoy your cruise.
  8. Hi Thank you for the reply's. For some reason it is hard to get information about cruises out of Australia. Especially what the cost will be. One other question can you bring 1 bottle of wine per person on board at embarkation. Really looking forward to to the cruises we have booked.
  9. Yes a Princess cruise on the Majestic Princess. Was wanting to know the regulations for Australia. It will be 3 B2B cruises first to New Zealand, then the South Pacific then to Tasmania. I checked and pop seems higher priced in Australia than in Canada by doing a google search. Especially Dr Pepper you can get a case of 12 cans for $ 4.99 CDN on sale. Same goes for Pepsi as well. Thanks for any information.
  10. Hi i am doing a cruise from Sydney NSW next January and I am from Canada. Are there any restrictions when boarding a ship in Sydney at Circular Quay. I was wanting to bring Pepsi on board. That will purchased near by. It is a Princess cruise. Also does any one know the cost per day for the classic soda package in AUD. Also what are the internet package pricing in AUD. Thanks for any information.
  11. Hi it should have said a pack safe neck wallet. That held my passport and my cell phone.
  12. Was at the museum last May and we used the coat check that that is across from the washrooms as you enter the museum on a lower level. Donot remember people having back packs with them while on tour of the museum. Used a package neck wallet to keep my passport and my cell phone under my blouse. Sometime you can leave things o the bus while you are in places that donot allow back packs or large bags. The Hermatge is fantastic. Enjoy your tour.
  13. If you are flying home for a cruise with EZ Air that you need to book a Princess transfer to the airport to get the flight covered by EZ Air. Also depending on your flight time you may have to wait for the air line check in counter to open. It all depends on your flight time and the air line you are flying. Also after security keep checking your boarding gate they change ours with no announcement. Just happen to check a screen listing flights. Also you pick up you luggage inside of the terminal when using a Princess transfer. The Princess rep will tell you where to get your luggage to check it in for your flight. Hope you have a great cruise.
  14. Hi my Dh and I did Princess tours in St Petersburg last year. We did a back to back Baltic cruises. So we had 4 days in St Petersburg. They were 4 fabulous days. One of the days we did a full day with a car and driver and guide. Which was really fun. Then on other 3 days we did excursions from the ship but did the small group ones. You were on a large bus but there was not a full bus load. If you do the full day tours you get lunch included. There was entertainment at lunch as well. Your days in St Petersburg start early and you will do alot of walking especially when you do the places. So make sure you have very comfortable shoes. on one of the days we walked 11 k in one day. We were happy with the guides we had for our tours in St Petersbug. Also as stated ship tours get priority through immigration so you start your day earlier than those on private tours. We found going through immigration took the same time both days. on the both times we did it on both cruises last summer. I hope you have a great time what ever you decide.
  15. Hi I think there was a similar complaint last year on the Regal transatlantic cruise that internet was slow. We were on the Regal last May in the Baltic's and the speed was really good. Had no problems with the internet. My husband had a problem with his phone he had a vpn enabled and Princess @ sea did not like that and he had trouble connecting to the internet as well. We even tried at the internet cafe for help and the could not explain why there was a problem. I had no problems with either as i had did not have any anti virus on my phone. Hope the speed improves and you have a great cruise.
