  1. All Googs has is a November 2018 review on cruise critic that includes Steve Moris. Personally I hope he is busy working out a new/different set. Funny enough and a good player, but a wee bit dated with some material. Btw: yes, I go back to see him every time he is on a the ship.
  2. I don't care for the search within Princess, so I always use outside searches. (other sites)
  3. We take the cruises we book. Problem (?) solves.
  4. Autographed photos and items, religious artifacts of their liking, specific consumables, rather small green tinged portraits of Presidents, etc. bottles of particular wines for white shirts that we know. (BTW the autographs are not ours)
  5. When we know specific staff members will be on a particular ship, we take them something that we know that they will enjoy.
  6. Yes, not true statistics but an article from The NY Times “The 85-and-over United States population, the fastest-growing cohort in the country, is projected to rise from 5.8 million today to 19 million in 2050.” ”By 2030, when all surviving baby boomers will be over 65, the report projects there will be 72 million seniors, about 20 percent of the population. (Seniors already make up 20 percent of the population in Germany and 21.5 percent in Japan.)”
  7. Not the various US governments. Surely there will be another retool of the program in attempt to make higher status more expensive to achieve. But, I have a feeling that whatever they do, it won’t matter. People are going to cruise in ever increasing numbers and yes, the 85+ crowd on ships is growing.
  8. I think when they stopped having “their” own brews, they haven’t replaced them with any craft brews. Anyway this will will qualify as a bump.
  9. Yes, this is a test of the emergency broadcast system, broadcasters in your area, in voluntary cooperation with state and local authorities, have developed this test in case of an emergency. It’s like the muster drill speech, you know it by heart. Yes the words change a bit over the years.
  10. The table will be assigned in traditional dining, but not the seats. You may ask the MD (maitre d) to change tables.
  11. Solve the large table conversation problem by sitting somewhere different every night. You may not be in conversation with someone one night, but you can converse the next night. Of course, you may have the folks that think they own a particular set of chairs for the entire cruise. (More reason to sit in their seats)
