  1. When I was on her the "nightclub" was in the Hollywood conservatory (the enclosed swimming pool area). However, if people were slow to show up at the designated time they were quick to pull the plug on the music.
  2. My favourite would be Danny Shamess. I think he's now based in Australia so I hope to see him on some Australian itineraries (should they ever start sailing again).
  3. I watched the Denzel Washington movie Flight on a plane. Complete with plane being upside down.
  4. I've only cruised Princess interiors. I'd honestly be fine for a few weeks. The beds are so comfy, I could catch up on sleep. Internet and the tv to keep me entertained, moves that I haven't had time to watch over the last year or so. The food they had delivered seemed adequate to me.
  5. My parents recently returned from NZ and they used shoretripsandtours.com for all of there day tours. They enjoyed them all and found them very reasonably priced.
  6. I just booked two nights for $212 total. Cheap enough for me.
  7. The ability to buy the 6 cans once on board must depend on which region you are sailing (as with a lot of things on Princess). I've never been able to purchase on Aussie cruises. You can carry on as much pop (and any other factory sealed non alcoholic beverage) as you like at any port.
  8. On the Princess site you hit the "destinations" tab. Then under "plan & book" you see ports of call, hit that. Select a destination, then select a port of call. Hit "view details". You can then click to view cruises from chosen destination. It's long winded but it gets you the info you want.
  9. You can't get the soda offer once you board. Coffee you definitely can.
  10. I recommend the Great Southern, especially now that the tram is running down to Circular Quay. I'm a solo traveller and I've never felt unsafe, even late at night in this area.
  11. This could have been a review of my Tassie trip on the Majestic. I went on her when she first came down to Australia for cruises. They hadn't really made any effort at that stage to make it more appealing to the Aussie market. The layout is awful, the staff were downright miserable. Nearly impossible to get a drink anywhere. Food choices were lacking, desserts in buffet consisted of 6 cakes with different coloured creams but all of the same, almost tasteless "flavour". The party band played once, daily entertainment was mostly seminars and opportunities to by stuff. This ship has all the bells
  12. No, the cut off was last year. You've missed out.
  13. I print an A4 sign to leave at the table in the buffet. "Be right back, getting food. Feel free to join me but please do not move me. Thanks!" So far it has worked a treat.
  14. The Majestic uses Princessconnect, not quite as good as MedallionNet but far better than the by the minute internet of other ships.
  15. The problem with the "long" adaptors is that the power points are so low to the desks that these often don't fit. I would be almost certain that you wont be able to get this in the power point.
