  1. Since people haven't cruised in such a long time I really wonder what the cutoff numbers will look like when people begin cruising once again. We're a little hesitant to rush back to soon.
  2. As far as I know they haven't gone back to the old format. Many people like the new way of serving and the cardboard containers with pre selected servings are still the norm. You couldn't get me back a second time......especially compared to the Royal class ships buffets. We tried it a few times & wound up in the DR most nights.
  3. That's the same thing we noticed. The food was OK in the DR but the buffet selections & prep left a lot to be desired. It was our last trip for the Carib Princess until they change things back to the old way. Thankfully they changed their minds about converting the other ships.
  4. I haven't been following this complete thread but if that's true we'll be opting for a table for 2 all the time at the beginning of the cruise. I think this will be the most requested option since people will be cautious about contagious COVID.
  5. It doesn't bother me that much unless there's something wrong with the location.
  6. One time were were at a table for 10 & got stuck at the end of the table, which was terrible. Absolutely no allotted table space since the ends of the table are somewhat pointed. We arrived earlier one evening to sit in the middle & were criticized for changing seats. Needless to say that was our last time at a large table. We don't need the aggravation at dinner time. A table for 2 is so much better.
  7. You would think the medallion system could provide that information.
  8. You have to get there before they open & then the seating is rather quick once they begin.
  9. Since we always get there early in the morning we've never seen that situation.
  10. In many cases I only take a small portion of many items like yourself. If they insist in giving full serving spoons of any items it's only going in the garbage most times. This might not be all bad since it'll speed up the line with indecisive people. 😄
  11. OK I guess but you have to wear a pair of pants with belt loops.
  12. I've never seen that happen in Florida. They always made people wait until general boarding had begun.
  13. I don't look forward to having them serve my portions for me. To much waste.
  14. I can't see why the Elite Lounge won't be available for boarding as before. Separating passengers can be done either in the general population or the lounge....but why knows for sure. It wouldn't surprise me to see them enforce assigned boarding times but that would only mean longer lines outside the building accomplishing nothing but more crowding shoulder to shoulder.
  15. Very few people can say the same.
  16. Get to the island as early as possible & you'll find shade under a tree, bush or pavilion.
  17. They publish the formal dress code blurb & then turn their heads to all but the most blatant offenders, trying to satisfy both groups. It is strange that their the last of the more popular cruise lines to hold on to the old way of doing business.
  18. Washing underwear in the sink is the quickest to make sure you'll have them for the next day.....without holes or shrinkage. My husband had been doing it for years now.
  19. If I'm considered a guest on the ship then perhaps I can negotiate the amount of my fare. 😉
  20. Yes, it might be so the DH also brings his guayabera shirt.....just in case he's called out for it but never has in recent times. Princess has taken the attitude of not wanting to offend any of the passengers for lack of dress, except for the most extreme. I don't expect things to change much once we return to cruising.
  21. For as long as I can recall, formal nights on Princess for the guys has been a pair of Dockers & either a dress shirt without a tie, guayabera shirt or polo shirt. The days of requiring a suit or blazer are long gone & I don't expect them to return in the future.
  22. That looks perfectly fine for a casual evening in the DR.
  23. So now they've switched to voluntary viewing on the TV. Sounds good to me... I've heard the same old message to many times before.
  24. I seldom carry my expensive smartphone around all day long just to take a few photo's & refer to the patter occasionally. It's definitely easier to carry a heighted copy of the patter & not have to worry about losing or damaging my phone.
