  1. Friend told us the scuttlebutt is a passenger came on with it and passed it around
  2. Have been on about 8 Princess ships in the past 5 years and they have all had it at least once.
  3. No great desire to see it next month on the Sky but will see it and hopefully we will like it
  4. Have had two elite cruises now. First time got thru quick but three hours later went to Int Cafe for coffee and swap had not been made so could not get coffee. Second time the guy took my info and served me.
  5. It can take several hours to remove the bar setup and post coffee cards on your account. Always call as soon as we get on hoping the setup not out yet but to no avail. Wish you could arrange this ahead of time
  6. I would have adjusted his tip accordingly.
  7. 1 bottle of wine per passengers and one mini bar setup unless it is also sold as two 7 day cruises. Menus should be different each day but some entres will be repeated.
  8. I have no clue how many P and D's there were back than but remember a bunch have moved on to other cruise lines or just stopped cruising. Overall they do not give much for loyalty so would hate to see this taken away but would rather they use a bit of imagination in picking gifts.
  9. Usually or manage so we owe them a small amount. That is why we get a statement of account every couple of days. Since most of our cruises have free grats these days and we get free coffee cards now that we are elite have to manage our account a bit more creatively than in the past.
  10. Better chance that if they offered a selection would find something we think would be useful. Been platinum about 10 years and have gotten gifts say 25 times and do think they used to give us a better and more imaginative gift.
  11. That is shocking. Tried to verify this by going to Komen website and looking for recent P & L's but cannot find one. Guess we will just give donations to other worthy charities
  12. If they give a choice of 3-4 things would think complaints would go way down but apparently the plan is to eliminate the gift altogether.
  13. Last morning of cruise we go to guest services and get cash for our obc. Last few times no wait at all.
  14. That is not going to happen. If they eliminate it not going to lower prices on something else it will just be gone. always thought they should offer a small selection of gifts instead of one. Must say last few groups have been kind of pathetic. Remember the croc sun shade and the worlds thinnest stationary.
  15. Quite a few cruising friends who have been on the Island since the "butchering" have suggested we avoid it. We respect those opinions so lots of other choices for us
  16. Too often princess live is full well before the activity will start. Hoping this new version has more capacity but from the pictures might even be less. Exployers lounge works well why change it?
  17. When we need anything and the steward is not to be found, we always leave them a note and almost always issue taken care of quickly
  18. We had a problem on the land tour after an Alaska cruise and two weeks ago was told we will hear from them in 6 weeks. They called to tell me this. Since Alaska season is over and the lodges closed nobody for them to talk to cannot imagine how they would resolve my complaint but we shall see.
  19. Very hit and miss but lately when we ask the waiter very often says they will have to charge corkage. Depends upon the MD.
  20. Can someone please post link to request shareholder obc. Thanks so much
  21. I would think that after this much time they would know where internet speeds would be good and where they would be terrible. They do sail these waters very often.
  22. Would be nice if they gave out more info about how lousy internet service will actually be during the crossing. We have done the same crossing with their older system and would appear speeds were much faster than. I wonder why that should be?
  23. Just after writing what I did realized it conflicts with youngest grandkids birthday so not going to happen. Went to Alaska last month on cruise with Royal and ports way to crowded. Only going to get worse and wonder if anyone will be able to fill all these cabins.
