$10.25 for value plan is this standard
Our May 6 Miracle cruise, the Value Plan was $72 and the Premium Plan was $119 for the 7 days.

You can share the package but only one device at a time can use the package at any one time.
Budget
Don't forget gratuities, can prepay those.
Plan to buy a photo or two. Range from $12-$20.

In port, eat in a locals place. These are usually much cheaper than those catering to tourists.

Speaking with the FCD gal on the Miracle. She was saying once she's gone the desk will no longer exist. After she's gone you'll book at Shore Excursions or Guest Services. IMO the only reason to...

That's the exact reason we don't like the Princess ships we've been on.
Probably a revenue thing. You're not going to spend money if you're not in/near a lounge.

Re post 7

Translating for us Americans. 70C is equivalent to 158F. Very hot, but not boiling water.

Could always travel when your child no longer needs boiled water.

Yeah, at first we couldn't figure out why everyone was shifting. Then we saw the puddle and run-off. Turns out the Inspiration lists a bit when docked in Long Beach.

2 person only Grand Suite?
Do a mock booking online and see what's available. It's quite possible that they're sold out.

The deck plans will also show which cabins can accommodate extra pax.
