  1. I love the machines the first one I saw at a McDonald's in NYC almost 15 years ago...one of my kids gng to school there introduced me. I am not a soda drinker but love the flavored water selections. We have received the soda package as TA perks on RCI, unfortunately when a machine breaks down, it's bad news.... So from reading this thread.............no one has experienced the machine on any princess ship...correct????
  2. Did I just read someone post they have never heard of a large bottle of wine being confiscated.....well I have and it happened to me....🙄 No option for corkage. Let's get real..... it depends on the port you're sailing out of, the time of year, guests on your sailing(spring break and holidays often brings out the enforcers),the person checking carry-ons, and if there is a table set up etc...etc... So if Princess wants to enforce and confiscate they can...per their policy. If you value your bottle don't take a chance, if not, go for it....

  6. It was in May..but as u know access is weather dependent. We utilized the area a few times. More times than not it was F R E E Z I N G and windy.....but you could hide under the overhangs.
  7. BTW... did an RT Alaska out of Seattle, last year with adult son...told him not to bother to bring formal wear...this from the Mom who purchased Tuxes for her sons to travel on cruises when they were younger...I love tuxes, but the cruise industry has been changing for the last 10 years...and with cell phones at the ready , no MD will question what someone wants to wear in the MDR except maybe shorts, but I've seen shorts at night in the middle of cruises more than once. Enjoy...
  8. Cruised on Coral last month..few tuxes, mostly sports coats if jackets were worn..and these were mostly people cruising for their first time. For the last few years DH has seldom taken his tux, black long sleeve shirt and slacks, simply because so few people are wearing them any more. On this cruise he noticed most men wore white long sleeves for formal nights. I don't pay attention anymore. However, on a recent cruise out of Southampton, DH was odd man out without a Tux at our Anytime dining table for 8. For Coral's cruise he chose a black shirt and black jeans...With so many people doing land trips why bother with dress clothes....I chose black jeans and a dressy top...The captains party was formal, which surprised me...as this is one reason why DH has stopped bringing TUX, so many Captain's Parties are no longer formal. The most traveled cocktail party dress code on our cruise was Elegantly casual. Love people dressed formally, but the times are a changin' its so much easier not lugging formal wear around. For our Coral 12 day land/cruise we just took carry-ons and backpacks...so much easier to unpack when you arrive home.... Traveling frm the UK lighten your load...but if you love dressing formal go for it....
  9. advantages for booking early.. 1..may sell out 2..price may increase 3..and this happened to me on a cruise last March in Hawaii, last in first out...I booked an excursion 2 weeks b4 the sailing and it was confirmed. It was a snorkeling excursion, vendor had 2 boats but one broke down, all those who were the last to book had the excursion cancelled.
  10. There is no size limit except to what will be traveling with you on the train, for that we just used 2 backpacks. Last month we saw many LARGE suitcases outside of hotel rooms waiting for pick up. Ourselves we decided to just use carry-ons...it was easy to do it in Alaska for 12 days.
  11. No, Front desk has safety deposit boxes available at no charge. They are accessible 24 hours a day during your stay.
  12. As another poster mentioned many TAs do not want to purchase your OBC until they know you have boarded the ship...thus the comment "on board credit should show by the second day."
  13. Was on the same cruise as Eileen(hi Girl) and we did have B E A U T I F U L weather for College Fjord...as we were sailing away the views were spectacular from the back of the ship...Just a few of us were on the stern until 11pm....very few times while cruising have I experienced a totally serene feeling when looking at scenery ...this was one.......it was truly Majestic....not a big fan of Alaska...but this moment will always be etched in my mind. This photo was taken east of the ship at 9:30pm, we were sailing north or was it south? south, I think the view was totally snow covered...pristine......do not have a photo to do it justice.
  14. When & where and what ship is your cruise on, OP...prices are always a changin' and are not always consistent fleet wide, at least that has been my experience, the last few years. If someone has already asked this my apologies.
  15. Snorkel or Bering sea crab tour in Ketchican, Hike & float tour or do hiking on your own in Skagway.
