  1. I didn't know this; thanks for the tip! I will make sure to let them know from now on.
  2. THANK YOU for posting! I'm taking this cruise 2/16 and I especially appreciate the menus and patters.
  3. We got an upgrade offer from an interior to a balcony on our first cruise. I can kind of understand why they do it. It gives people who are new to the line positive associations right from the get go. That was our first cruise ever and with one exception we have stuck to Princess ever since, even though we are just "low class" platinum cruisers.
  4. I find that the entrees at the MDR range, in my opinion, from okay to quite good. I have never had anything terrible that I can recall. My only wish is that they would change the menu a bit more frequently. The past few years the menus across ships has been almost identical.
  5. Hi everyone, I am curious how far in advance people started seeing activities pop up on their app before the cruise? One person told me 60 days for them but I am within 60 days and don't have anything yet so it must vary. I am wondering what the general range is. Thanks!
  6. Thanks for the review! I am back on the Regal in February. I have never done the Sanctuary there... how much do the loungers cost? And do you recall how much the cabana is?
  7. Do you know how far in advance they post activities?
  8. Hello everyone! Scary announcement... the Captain just came over the stateroom intercom and said someone needs a "life saving blood transfusion." Thankfully a couple of minutes later he said they got so many volunteers that they don't require any more for now. I hope the poor person is okay. Last night we were at the Crown Grill. The food and service was impeccable. They know how to do a real medium-rare. Unlike at the steakhouse on RCL where I got a hockey puck. Today was a lazy day! I hung out by the sanctuary pool, went to the art auction, played music trivia, bought
  9. It was $140 for the afternoon. Not sure about the full day. We have it almost entirely to ourselves right now.
  10. Escargot, which I cannot eat. Sad because i love the butter sauce!
  11. I asked about this at the Wheelhouse last night and she the CB no longer has whiskey flights. 😞
  12. Sorry that I have been slacking on the live blog! The ship is in Cozumel today but we stayed on. We always go to Cozumel and I like it but I wanted a day with a quiet ship. Yesterday was the second formal night. I ordered the lobster with risotto but I was not very happy with it. I like simple broiled lobster with drawn butter and this was in a very thick cream sauce. But we had fun at our table! Not to be overly negative but I was also not a fan of Belize. We did the trolley tour and I am glad we got to see the city but our tour guide was very down on Beli
  13. Haha! I am sure there's a way to fix this but even though I select files in chronological order they don't upload that way. 🙂 The cat was in Roatan and he was just as adorable as he could be. I wanted to sneak him back on the ship but my husband strenuously objected.
  14. Good evening all, from the still afloat, air-conditioned and well-lit Caribbean Princess! We had a nice day at Mahogany Bay today but I learned something very important: clamshells aren't worth it. First of all, my feet always end up sticking out in full sun and I have to wrap them in a towel or article of clothing. They also act as a sort of heat trap with no cross-ventilation whatsoever. Anyway, a good idea in theory but I will stick with umbrellas or spring for a cabana/bungalow. At least with umbrellas you sometimes get a breeze. We had lunch at Slice again which wa
  15. We are in the theater now waiting for the 9:30 shown and everything we passed along the way is functional including the casino, the music in the piazza and the theater lights. Looks good to me.
  16. I just finished dinner in the Palm Dining Room. The lights went up and down a couple of times but that's it. Everything seems to be running normally here.
  17. Hmmm I'm not sure! Haven't seen it so far but I will keep an eye open.
  18. Most likely not. My husband does not like shellfish so it would not be appreciated enough.
  19. Good morning from somewhere near Roatan, Honduras! I'm sipping an Americano from Coffee and Cones and watching the sea roll by from my balcony. Last night was a lazy day after returning from Grand Cayman. We went to Slice for lunch and I tried the stromboli. A+! It was so good I forgot to take a picture of it! We went to the Captain's Circle Welcome Party... meh, it was okay. The drinks were plentiful but the canapes were very lackluster and the presentation was basically a sales pitch. The Captain himself couldn't make it. Oh well, free champagne! The shi
  20. I thought it was beautiful. Extremely convenient to the port, spotlessly clean, friendly staff. The bed was comfortable. I would definitely stay again if I were going to be there for more than 8 hours!
  21. We booked the Seven Mile Beach Getaway through Shore Excursioneer.
