  1. Wow.... another delay. Great way to end the 1st season. Sounds like people will be missing flights in Los Angeles.
  2. OP - Please confirm that you actually were on the inside passage on the southbound voyage. This would be the first time I have heard the Royal Princess truly used the inside passage.
  3. you are so correct.... I just looked at Princess Web site. The route map as of today clearly shows the passage is on the inside of Vancouver Island. It will be interesting to listen to passengers and crew to see if this is an issue discussed.
  4. We received an e-mail.
  5. RCCL & Celebrity provide you some carry over perks you might want to consider too. We really enjoyed the Millennium B2B last year. Icy Straight Point is a great new port! It is very non-tourist and you really could experience Alaska. Hubbard Glacier is also amazing. Hubbard is one of the few glaciers that is not retreating. Suite Guests are treated to a private glacier viewing on the ship's bow. This year we are trying the Royal B2B and look forward to comparing the two. The Royal is also departing from Vancouver which we prefer so we can enjoy the inside passage. A little concerned the tides and size of the Royal may limit the Inside Passage Experience. We were just notified yesterday that out Aug 3 sailing date is now departing early due to tides.
  6. I just got mine and it is very similar to the IWatch rubber band. I feel it would be secure for your kids. Is the Medallion "Waterproof"?
  7. Some good news.... We were all set for our Sailing on August 3 to 17. B2B Royal Princess. DD was on the Aug 3 to 10 sailing. She was offered a Move Over opportunity that she took. She is now on the Aug 10 to 17 sailing. We already received our medallions and the app was uploaded and working. The good news... The app updated perfectly! The new sailing is showing just like magic. Good Job Princess IT team.
  8. looking forward to having my favorite beverage delivered!
  9. We just gout our Medallions. Just one for our B2B cruise. 😞 Maybe they will issue a 2nd one onboard?
  10. Hi Dcruiser - We will be returning to Princess on the Regal in August after a great run of sailings on Celebrity. look forward to a first hand comparison.
  11. Anyone here under 30-years old have a review or comments about the Medallion? I just uploaded the application and it all seems fine with the exception that my loyalty status is incorrect. The Princess Rep advised me just now that they have a system issue and to just wait awhile for an update. I am really interested in hearing from the under 30-folks for their input.
  12. We loved Icy Strait Point - Great floating dock easy to get on and off the ship. Free shuttle into the restaurant and museum, but a very easy walk if able. Interesting museum about the village and canning industry. Nice shops to visit. We did an off road drive & Zip line that was a blast. Don't miss the little donut shop in the village and a walk along the shoreline. This is a nice alternative to the other ports and a look at Alaska without a lot of tourism.
  13. Yes, the 10th is our 2nd leg. Let's see if we can get the roll call moving...
  14. Same here! Are you following the Roll Call? Very Quiet there...
  15. Balcony cabins? Just open the dividers. Assuming they open.
