At Sea today - heading for ASan Juan - a little lumpy and cool.
Do not believe the negative reviews on the Star - The ship is great shape, although I did notice a small rugstain. Food so far has been excellent. Our room, an inside standard, is larger than a regular standard - A 515 must be a guarded secret - it is very roomy.
Embarkation was not too bad - we arrived at the port about 11:30 - doors opened about noon - we were in our cabin by 12:20.
Nice to hear from you, Ron. Enjoy your cruise, and yes, you did luck out on your cabin. It shows up on the deck plan being the same size as an accessible cabin, but is not marked as such. The secret is out now, though.
Is it just me who wonders why they bother painting lines on the roads in Rome?
Cant wait to see the warm sun. Its snowing here in Reno, NV today. How are the seas Ron. I heard in the past its been kinda rough. What nights are formal night? Ron did you do any tours in San Juan? Enjoy your trip
bathroom stuff was the usual shampoo, conditioner, lotion - we had a big surprise - as we entered our room we found a bottle of champagne and a plate of eight chocolate dipped strawberries - from the ship?
Today was a sea day - somewhat rough but smoothing out now - good dinner - formal night.
We didn't get into San Juan untill 7 PM - too dark to see anythinbg - but we ahve been there before - be sure to see the fort in the daytime and have some mufango at a local restaurant.
St. Thomas today - just went out and bought some Absolut Vodka for $10 per Litre - Sorry Scott - couldn't find any 5 oclock - maybe they were using it in the laundry - I think the Goose was going for about $15.
I said the ship was in good shape - maybe not true - saw many maintenance guys painting and varnishing and even replacing carpet in a room - Princess shouldn't let the ship go to pot like this LOL
Wife bought some snorkel goggles and tube - we are going to flood the bathroom tonight and check it out!
We leave for Tortola in about an hour - tonight is Island night on the aft decks - they were setting up this afternoon.
Hi Ron!!! Isn't the Star a beauty?????? Ask Isaac if he will come with me in October!!!

Most people walk in and out of your life......but FRIENDS leave footprints in your heart
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty & well preserved body, BUT rather to SKID In BROADSIDE, completely used up, totally worn out, and SCREAMING "WOW---WHAT A RIDE!!"
WHY in the world did you not get to SJU until 7pm? Hope everything is OK. We have a shore excursion scheduled for 6pm in a few weeks and being that late not going to work since it is a non refundable trip. Yikes! We would have missed it if we were on your sailing.
PS have you tried to order a hot breakfast from room service? Would like to know the results if you did.
We'll be on the Star in a few weeks and I am loving this thread. How's the food been? Any do's and don't's re: food, entertainment, activities, excursions, . . . would be appreciated - I'm taking notes!
We had some stiff headwinds heading to SJ - delayed 3 hours.
Food has been excellent no matter what the gourmet naysayers say!
Anybody that can complain about Princess food must eat at 5 star gourmet restaurants 24/7 - Princess isn't a 5 star but ranks in th 2 to 3 star gourmet/fine dining - after all how many gourmet restaurants serve 2600 pople every sitting???
Tortola isn.t much - better plan a beach excursion.
