    I hated the Emerald Princess and will avoid it like the plague, but it is the only Princess ship I have ever been on, so I can't say how it compares to the Royal Class ships. I am banking that I will greatly prefer the Royal Class as I am sailing on the Enchanted in under two weeks. I am really hoping I like the newer ships as the Emerald was much too old for me.

    You hated your 1st ship you sailed on with Princess, so you have booked another

    Why?  Our phones are older than this and have no problems.  Then again, we don’t use apps for anything. Not everyone wants to pay hundreds of dollars a month for a cell phone. We prefer to spend our money traveling and splurging such as flying first class or Delta One Suites.

    My cell phone cost me $15 a month for unlimited call, texts and 30gb of data, 15 is not 100s

    I’ve read that a few times from other members.  Curious as to why some requests are granted and others not.  Seems to be at the discretion of the cabin steward.  

    Actually the real reason is if the ship has a season in Europe, especially Southampton based

    Good for you!  So many others have reported that they were denied a kettle unless in the UK or Australia.  Your first two words were really unnecessary, since absolutely many folks did not have your experience.  

    Well I've absolutely had a kettle every single time I've requested, and that's over 10 times in the Caribbean. Absolutely

    You can ask your cabin steward, but it’s not likely you’ll get one.  A few CC members from the UK have asked onboard, but their request was politely declined.  

    Absolutely incorrect, we always get a kettle when we request it

    Well, ok then, what is the answer to that?  We have a cruise booked for next year with two stops in Israel.

    You are not going to Israel, cruise will happen you will probably go to Cyprus or something similar

    You cannot legally purchase soft drinks on your package and share them with others. Sharing in violation of the rules is the reason Princess puts a log of restrictions on the packages that make it difficult for the rest of us. If Princess catches you sharing drinks from a package with someone else, they have the right to cancel the entire package with no refund. Read the terms and conditions.

    It's happening all the time, don't worry about it

    Lots of assumptions here, but no real answers yet except john1970.  We are NOT flying to the US.  We are flying from Heathrow to Amsterdam, so considered domestic (and out of Terminal 5, without the extensive security issues of a US flight).  Would like to get into Amsterdam as early as possible and the main nonstops are in the 1230 or 1430 timeframe. We've done the Princess transfers for a US flight multiple times and are familiar with how long that takes - looking for folks with experience flying to Europe from Heathrow.


    Flying out of SOU means sitting in that airport until 1720 and not getting into Amsterdam city until almost 2100.  Same problem flying out of Gatwick (except Easyjet).  Was hoping to do Eurostar, but timing just doesn't work for that, either.


    John1970, that should work. We can live with separate seats for a 1 1/2 hour flight since you don't get a seat assignment on BA until checkin.  Any idea how long it actually takes at Terminal 5 with Brexit?  In the US you usually need to be at the airport 2 hours before domestic flights.

    You need to buy a map, how is a flight from the UK to The Netherlands a domestic flight

    Princess has morphed into a cruise line that is nothing like when we started cruising. Every time you turn around there's an additional charge from the moment you book a cruise to the last day you depart the ship. 

    We're among the cruisers who are shopping around for better value since their loyalty benefits have eroded to practically nil lately. 

    Interesting, let us know who you come up with as a solution
