Finally on vacation. So far all is well. We booked the Marriott North thru Princess for one night pre cruise. It was very nice. I would recommend it highly. We had transfers to the ship thru Princess, but did not want to wait. We arranged a ride thru the hotel for $10 per person.
We got to the pier very early and waited outside, in line, again it was our choice so waiting was no problem. Once we got in, checking in went fast. Within 30 mins we were in our cabin.
Cabin D518, mini suite. Nice, we've had mini suites before. No problem there, the room steward is great. We got the extra feather pillows, and egg crate cover for the beds.
We have booked the Lobster Balcony dinner for Weds. We are three couples traveling together and wanted to have all six in one cabin for the dinner. At first they said no, but found out, that was because they had never done three couples at one time, in one place before. Because one of the couples is in D733 and has a HUGE balcony, plenty room for three couples, they are going to do it for us.
Went to Movies Under the stars last night. All I can say is, WOW!! We will be going again. Great Concept!
We have PC Dinning. If you make reservastions, they do try to push 6 or 8:30 pm. So far they woould not take a reservation for a different time. That does defeat the purpose, so we are just taking our chances. We had to wait about 40 mins last night when we got there at 6:50 pm, but who cares, we are on vacation. We took our pager and went to have a drink!!
Today is San Juan, going to go get a little sun! I'll check in later!!
Please excuse any misspellings! I am typing this without my glasses!!
