Default Mini Bar Setup for Elite

Help, we are now Elite and I cannot find the part where I can request what I would prefer for the mini bar set up. Can someone please direct me to where I should look on the Princess website.

Thanks

Don't waste your time...they do not pay attention to it anyways, and will deliver you the standard selection. Call room service to get it switched out.

No matter what you request you will receive the standard setup. As stated, call room service to switch. Be advised though, that you cannot switch sodas or water for booze. You can however switch water and anything else for soda.

You can request anything you want, as long as it is the standard setup. Once onboard, call room service and ask to swap. They usually come pretty quickly.

On our recent Island Princess sailing, they had Canadian Whiskey instead of Scotch. As others have said, we just called room service and they swapped it out for us.

It is stocked with 2 bottles of everything to start.

See attachment.

Same on our April cruise on the Star Princess except what I noted in red... You can call Room Service and they will switch out. We usually trade the Gin & Cognac for Vodka and the Coke, Tonic, Sprite & Perrier's for Diet Coke.

If you are in a suite and are elite you get a double set up.

I call after boarding and switch everything to cans of Sprite Zero. They'll be there within minutes of calling.

Question...Is it a one to one switch or do you get more soda for the liquor?

One to one,Donna. Liquor gets you water, but water doesn't get you beer. Liquor gets you soda, but only one to one. They don't do monetary exchanges.

It is 1 for 1. If you trade the mini bottles for soda, you just get 8 sodas.

Cool! At the risk of sounding greedy, we are both Elite and have booked a suite. Does that mean THREE mini-bar setups?

No, two elite passengers still only get one bar set up ...
The suite will get you one more but that is the limit.

PS -- if you call on the very first day, they might be right there but I have had them ask if they could bring it a bit later, a couple of times, even the next day. No problem for us ... turn around day is horrendous for the crew.

It would be nice, but the Elite benefit and the Suite benefit are each one per cabin, so just two for you.

Default Canadian club now

That is new I always ask if they have Canadian Club and have always been told no. We would switch out the whole for CC, if we could instead its vodka.
