  1. Thank you both for your replies. A supplementary question if I may. Is the allocation per gold tier member or per cabin? So would both my wife and I both be able to claim the allowance? Thanks again.
  2. On our next round trip transatlantic crossing in November we will have 'Gold status' in CWC for the first time. I understand that this will entitle us to a free Internet package. Could anyone let me know how I go about securing this free package and tell me if it will be available on both segments of the round trip. Thank you.
  3. If I book the speciality restaurants in advance, can I ammend the booking once on board. Do I even need to book them in advance or is there generally good availability on the day?
  4. Thank you. Hoping the weather will be kind to us. We've got a forward cabin so hoping the seas won't be too rough!
  5. It's a 15 night Hawaii cruise starting and ending in Los Angeles. Four stops in Hawaii and one in Ensenada before return to LA
  6. Thanks both for your replies. Is there anyway of predicting when the formal nights will be? or do you have to wait until you're on board to find out. Thanks again.
  7. I shall be sailing on the Star Princess in January. The cruise personalise shows there will be 3 'formal nights'. Is the menu in the MDR special in any way on formal nights? I want to book some speciality restaurants but would not want these to clash with the formal nights if there is something special on offer in the MDR. Thanks for any information.
  8. Hi I've booked a forward balcony cabin on Caribe deck (10) on the Star Princess. Am I likely to be able to hear sound from MUTS from the balcony of this cabin? Thank you.
  9. Thank you. I think we would make good use of this package.
  10. Hi I'm new to Princess Cruises. I'm interested in buying the Classic Soda Package which includes "fountain sodas, fresh juices (if available), mocktails, and smoothies as per the menu." Are mocktails available in all bars through out the ship (we will be on the Star Princess 15 day Hawaii cruise in January 2020) and can they be ordered in the restaurants particularly the MDR. Any other tips for making the most of this package would be gratefully received. Thank you

    Book club

    We will be a round trip TA leaving Southampton on 3rd November. The return east bound leg will host a 'Literature Festival at Sea'. I understand that one feature of the festival is a book club lead by James Naughtie. Does any one know what book(s) will be being studied? It would be good to have some time to prepare! Thanks for any information.
  12. Heineken also brew Newcastle Brown!
  13. Thank you for all your replies. We shall look forward to pre-dinner drinks in the Commodore Club. Thanks again.
  14. Newcastle Brown is only ever served in bottles. Never as a draught.
  15. Thanks sagavista. The hor d'oeuvres on the HAL Noordam last May (transpacific) in the Pinacle Bar (open to all guests) were excellent and quite elaborate - from blinis to sliders to salmon mouse and satay skewers changing almost every night. They became something we looked forward to each day. Doesn't sound as if the Cunard do anything similar.
