  1. Dolphin has very large balconies. Shows as 682 sq. ft. but that's a measurement cloned from the Regal. The Sky, Enchanted, and Discovery are about 4 feet wider so I'd guess they are well over 700 sq. ft. I was originally booked in D727 on the Sky but upgraded when the Owners Suite became available and I refared under Getaway Sale. I'm booked in D726 on the Discovery for next year.
  2. Balcony was very nice. We dragged two of the wooden chairs around to the side and watched the world go by. I knew going in that this room didn't have a proper table and chairs in the room. There was plenty of room for them. Not sure why Princess didn't see fit to include them. Club Class dining was very nice and we never saw a reason to order from the MDR menu for delivery to the room. CC dining was even open on embarkation day! I was pleasantly surprised. This was my first time back with Princess after two sailings in a PH on the Celebrity Constellation. I missed the butler but X has now priced that room beyond my pain threshold. It sat eight for dinner.
  3. Same rule applies to suites. One reason I book suites is so I have the room for a scooter or rollator for DW. She used a rented rollator when in the Owners Suite. However. we met a couple in CC dining where the husband was using a three-wheel rollator. It easily folded up to get past the service carts while I ended up lifting the large rollator over them at times. I've since purchased a three-wheeler and intend to take it with us next time rather than rent. Cheap enough to consider disposable. May leave it somewhere along the way back.
  4. E729 - Starboard side Owners Suite on the Sky.
  5. No on table and chairs. Yes on noise from the Vista Lounge. I'd book it again. Twice the size of a S4 PH (440 sq. ft. vs 879 sq. ft.).
  6. Here's the obstructed view 'bible'. https://www.cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/ov.php?ship=Regal-Princess&cabins=E401-E445
  7. Sky musters stations, 12/04/19.
  8. No butler service for Penthouse or Owners Suite. Sky Suites have a 'dedicated Suite Experience Manager'.
  9. I agree. However, that balcony is huge. I will be on the 4-day just after the Discovery TA. Fingers crossed.
  10. We were in E729, directly above the Vista Lounge. We only noticed it one night. I recall remarking to DW that it must be painful to be in the lounge with that racket. That being said, I wouldn't hesitate to book the room again.
  11. I had none in December on the 3-day Inaugural Getaway (E729). I booked an aft suite on the Discovery (D726) for 2021. If there is soot, I'll deal with it.
  12. We had no soot whatsoever while in E729 (aft starboard corner) for the 3-day Sky Inaugural Getaway. However, Jan Swartz (President, Princess Cruises) was aboard and they may have made a special effort in this regard. I'm taking my chances and booked D726 (aft port corner) on the Discovery.
  13. Looks like what we had on the Sky. Cushions were always trying to slide off.
