  1. Well - I don't know what's happening, but at least I know it's not just me and know how to get the package for the advertised price now! Thanks for the help.
  2. Just picked a random sailing that happened to come in a search. Not logged in. This is before they add in taxes or insurance. It's still 74/94 a day for the packages not the 60/80 advertised. This was a solo booking. Same cruise, but 2 people is "better" but it's still 67/87 a day per person The pricing per day for solo 74/94 has been the same across several different sailing I've checked. Every one has that pricing. Which is why I was asking for clarification. I know Celebrity's all inclusive pricing doesn't work for solos, so was wondering if it's the same here. Though at least Princes lets you buy it on board for the advertised price. Glad to hear it's $60 all in on board.
  3. I'm talking about the package. For a solo it's Standard - $504; Plus - $1023. Which is a $519 difference which for the 7 day cruise works out to $74/day. Not $60.
  4. Hi, I haven't cruised with Princess before, but I'm looking at a few cruises. I'm a bit confused about the pricing and hoping you can help because I can't find the answer. I see everywhere that it's 60/80 a day, but every cruise adds more than that to the standard price on all the ones I've looked at. I don't know if it's something to do with me cruising solo? Or does Princess charge an 18% gratuity on the package? Or something else I'm missing. The last cruise I priced out is adding $74/day for the Plus package not $60. Though that's more than 18% so I'm just confused! (I priced the same one for 2 and it's $67/day.) I saw that you can now buy it on board, so if they don't charge gratuity on top of the price it looks like it would behoove me to just buy the package on board. Do you still get the Medallion accessory with Premier if you buy on board? Thanks!
  5. Is it just 60/80 a day on board or do they add gratuities to that price?
  6. Maybe when that promo was running was the last time I looked.
  7. I swear when I was looking at solo pricing a few weeks/months ago the All Included pricing for a solo was a good deal. Now when I'm looking at it there's no way it make sense. If two people in the cabin want All Included it's $500 more a person - a pretty good deal if you do drinks. But if I switch it to 1 person it's $1000 more. I was expecting the fare portion to double going solo not in a studio - but why is the All Included price doubling? Definitely no savings that way, especially if you have status that gives you discounts on drinks and wifi. With the current obc they're offering I can add everything a la carte for cheaper than their "savings" price. Any solo cruisers notice whether this is across the board or is it just on the sailings I'm looking at?
  8. The question is - if they ring it incorrectly, does the waiter/bartender have the ability to fix it? Or are you still going to GS? If you order the $3 coffee and they bring you a receipt that's $0 when you wanted to pay for it - can they fix it or is it still a trip to GS?
  9. Port Canaveral's website has a port schedule that lists all the terminals and which ships are there when. Including any that stop for the day.
  10. Because unvax are required to test. So you either show your vax card or you show a negative test.
  11. Thanks so much for this - I'm about to do a Med cruise too! The Easy Plus is everything up to 9 on the menu you posted?
  12. So those Signature cocktails aren't covered by any drink package? I think the Premium is only up to $13. That's a bummer.
  13. Don't ever book with Royal then.
  14. That must be new - but good. In Sept on the divina they were like only with this drink package.
  15. Oh I drink alcohol. And I'm solo so that's not an issue. I'm just weird that instead of coffee in the morning I'm an apple juice person and I found it crazy that it wasn't an included breakfast juice on MSC.
  16. Thanks! MSC was throwing me off with only listing soft drinks for easy plus now yet under premium it says soft drinks, fruit juices, mineral water, and energy drinks. And I couldn't find the chart they used to have.
  17. Didn't even think this would exist! Only thing I've ever seen in powder form is maybe lemonade...and I'm not even so sure it's not just a bunch of sugar lol
  18. Hi everyone, So the last time I went on MSC was before the switched the drink packages up. At the time Easy was the free one and Easy Plus covered most things and Premium covered the rest. Since they changed in the fall the packages have tweaked just a bit. So I'm looking for the differences and the biggest one I want to know is not the alcoholic side. So when I went last summer the free package was the easy package and it didn't include any juices or water not included. I upgraded for better booze - but found out the next day that the juices they had for breakfast was VERY LIMITED. Basically I really like apple juice for breakfast so I'm trying to figured out if the bottles of apple juice (or if they've started just serving glasses) is included in Easy Plus or if I need Premium to get it. I ask because online premium says fruit juices but it was included with easy plus last time I was on. So I want to know if they changed it to only apple juice for premium. Thanks!!!!
  19. I wouldn't think so either, thanks. Just know sometimes I've been like why is this an issue! when I wouldn't have thought. I feel like it's a reasonable question to ask if royal can actually do basic math considering their sales 🤪
  20. They would be with the same company, just different accounts. I actually don't have 100 yet. Didn't want to buy some in a second account and hope it worked. I just realized I should have put them in a tax favorable account since I was planning on holding them long term for the OBC benefit.
  21. I'm just wondering if everyone here has their 100 shares of Royal all in one account or if anyone has the 100 shares in more than one and still get the OBC. I bought some stocks in one account, but realized I'd rather be buying stock in an IRA. Was just wondering if you still get it if you had 30 in one account and 70 in another - both in your name. Or if they're sticklers and it has to be 100 in one account and they won't do addition. Thanks!
  22. It's annoying that this became such a cluster. The original idea was a national ID card with set standards across the board - similar to passports, but a license. Most other countries have a national ID. But there were several states that didn't like this or wanted more strict requirements that devolved to this cluster - where there's a minimum amount required but each state is allowed to add their own. And some dragged their feet to even start issuing the IDs. And they allowed the states to keep issuing their non-REAL licenses. Which just so happens to be cheaper, so a lot will get a rude awakening if they have the wrong one. I need to look up which month this goes into effect for flights so I make sure I don't fly then. Though it'll be causing problems for months after. Or cruises.
  23. For an Enhanced License? I could see it making sense for someone that lives close to the Canadian border and happens to cross it frequently. Why bother with always making sure your passport with you if you go that often? Some places towns on either side are really close where one could be crossing it a lot. But for the majority of people it makes more sense to just get a passport. If you were referring to REAL ID - well once they require it for US domestic flights I don't want to bother taking my passport with me to fly from FL to NY so REAL ID license it is. You only have to do it once.
  24. So I'm looking at a cruise that interports - has boarding in both Rome & Barcelona. And I was just curious if anyone that knows how that works with regard to bringing wine on board. Since people are embarking at both ports bringing on their allowed 2 bottles - is there something so non-embarking aren't bringing on wine on those ports? I'm guessing there's probably something in place, but figured I'd ask.
  25. Where were you price checking? Those 3 cruises were pulled off NCL's site this weekend, but starting last Thursday if you clicked on the 3 sailings it said sold out even though the page before had a price. If it wasn't an NCL site I'd make note that they don't update as frequently.
