  1. We boarded early as Platinum and went immediately to the Sanctuary.  There was a line.

    they take in 1 party at a time to reserve.  After waiting about 25 minutes those waiting were told nothing left for sea days and only cabanas.

    There must be a better way.

    We are on B2B so will go up first thing on turnaround day.  Hopefully will gave better luck,

  2. I have always used Safari on my Mac to access with no problems.

    Now I can’t get in.  I get the”We are having issues”


    Phone rep told me to try another browser.

    That is ridiculous.  Why should I have to change.

    it is their problem to address

  3. Got to the sign in page, further than yesterday...but could get no further to manage my bookings,

    Very frustrating.  Called Princess, they don't seem to be aware of a problem.  Told me to change browsers.

    That's not a solution.

  4. We are on the 14 day cruise starting 1/4/2020.

    The cruise look to be pretty sold out.

    We snagged L105, front of ship, only 2 cabins left..  Do not mind being forward, wanted a mini suite.  However, from pictures I've seen of this cabin on the Royal and Regal, it is a little wider but not as long as a regular mini.  The couch seems pushed up so part of it is across from the bed.

    The room seems a little squished.

    Can anyone confirm from experience.  I would expect it to be the same on the SKY.


    I did look at the 1/4 and 1/11 cruises separately and found many more cabins available.  Found the same Emerald deck cabin, aft available for both cruises.  Could I speak to Princess and ask to be assigned this for the 14 day?

    You have to wait until you are on board and visit the restaurant if you want an "off" time. There is normally someone there on boarding day afternoon. Since you are actually on two 7 day voyages b2b, you can speak with the restaurant during the first 7 days for a reservation during the 2nd 7 days. You may be able to book on line and just change the time once on board.

    On line pre-cruise there are only certain times. If you call the dining line once on board they also have set times. Just a few weeks ago on another Princess ship we went to Sabatini's and requested a 6:30 dining time. We were able to get it. Around 7:30 most of the restaurant was empty, kind of cleared out from the initial 5:30 dining times. One other note, 7 day cruises tend to have busy specialty restaurant usage. The second boarding day, January 11, might be a good choice. Full suite passengers get free dining on boarding days, the restaurant generally has tables and you will have already experienced the evening shows.


    This sounds like a good idea.  If we don't get something for the first week we will have a leg up on booking preferred times for the second week.

  6. We are booked on a 14 day sailing, Jan 4 on the Sky Princess.

    When trying to make advance dining reservations at the specialty restaurants, regardless of the day or restaurant chosen I am only offered times choices of 

    5:30, 7:30 or 9:30.

    Is this standard?  We'd actually prefer a time like 6:30 or 7.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

  7. We have been in Venice for several days staying at the Hilton Molino Stuckry.

    this hotel is directly across from where the infamous collision happened.

    we could see the boat clearly and up close.

    Today, a tugboat came and finally towed her away, I imagine to finally be repaired.

  8. We are on the last full day of our cruise from Amsterdam to Basel.

    We are docked in Breisich and will not be going to Basel by boat.  They will take us by bus tomorrow.

    The water level is too high to make it safely under the low bridges.  

    The new boarding passengers will be bussing from Basel to board the boat to Amsterdam.
