  1. Two chairs and a small table are all that will fit on the balcony.
  2. That was the suggestion made by my TA and unless I get a better suggestion will go that route. Thought that the land tour dept would be a better starting point but unable to find anyway to reach them.
  3. Well could do that next time but now we are back. Very surprised it happened at two Princess lodges
  4. They own the lodges so the people are their employees. Hope someone will know whom to go to in order to address this problem,
  5. No idea where else to put this so leaving it here. Just back from an 8 day land tour of Alaska after 7 day cruise. Overall we had a great time but one huge hiccup that I want to bring to Princess's attention. One of the reasons we booked this was to finally sea the Northern Lights. Tour director advised us to go to front desk of each lodge we stayed at and get on list for phone tree if they came out We im.mediately did this First night in Denali lodge came out, they started to call and stopped after about 20 calls. As a result almost all guests missed it. Complained to front desk and totally uncaring. Second night in Fairbanks got the call at 2 50 am. Rushed to go outside and nothing. Found out the next morning they came out at 12 30 and two hours later they were gone. Want to complain but any suggestion to whom we bring this too? Nothing they can really do for us now but would think they would be better than this.
  6. On late port days they were ok with people arriving about a half hour late for early seating.
  7. Believe they are only available on non Guy burgers ships
  8. Seems like a higher and higher percentage from Eastern Europe. Find it a very interesting mix of people.
  9. Why in the world do people care what others wear to DR?
  10. Eagle beach is nice but lots of great beaches. We take island bus which takes us right there and very cheap
  11. At the same time they added more passengers they reduced the size of the two main lounges. Seems it would make for a much more crowded ship
  12. Between that and the strange drink specials at the platinum/elite lounge they have helped to reduce our bar bill by quite a bit.
  13. Thanks for the review, we sail on the Royal in less than two weeks
  14. It is the equivalent of 4 slices.
  15. They were supposed to replace it with someone else but so far have not
  16. We find it pretty much useless and toss them. Only useful one is first night BOGO at specialty restaurant but we prefer to meet our tablemates and waitstaff the first night.
  17. We have used it for me and DW For me we had booked a 4K interior they gave us o/v and upgraded to extended balcony. For DW we booked o/v and than used diamond upgrade to get a balcony. One was for Hawaii and the other was for a Journey cruise
  18. Well not so sure there are more and more platinum every day. Lot of platinum are elderly folks who at some point are not physically able to cruise anymore. So really wonder if the total number of platinum is really growing and if so is it an appreciable amount?
  19. Turned platinum about 12 years ago in late 50's. Agree that people like me do not give them as much revenue as folks with blue cards who will spend a lot more on the ship than we do. Been a long time since we booked excursions thru the cruise line.
  20. We will be on the Miracle in Jan and have that type of cabin. Would be interesting to get the straight scoop
  21. If you booked thru a TA call them if a pvp call them.
