  1. My parents just book the Ruby for October 2020 and it says that it's Medallion Class.
  2. I'm an over-planner and I knew from my Mom what we would get, so on our last cruise, I had a printout of exactly what we wanted to swap. I gave it to the room steward and he took care of it. He appreciated having it written down.
  3. Fruit Tartlets! They were at the International Café every day and I ate so many of them. They are the best shortbread cookie I've ever had, topped with a light whipped cream and fresh fruit. So good!
  4. Then you can deal directly with your Princess person. 😃
  5. Don't give up yet. When 3 for 3 starts, call your travel agent and see if you can transfer to the new promotion.
  6. I had this happen to me and the answer is a big fat no, which really sucks. Next time, I am going to use the computer room to check before I get off the ship. They delete all the photos by the time we are disembarking. Sorry about that.
  7. WOW!! My sister is on the Sapphire right now and they paid $250 for both of them for a 14 day cruise. She said it was $199 for one person. Sounds like the prices are different all over the fleet.
  8. I'm a big fan of the 3 for 3 promo and it should be coming up soon. It gives you paid gratuities, which can save you around $100 per person for a 7 day cruise. You also get some on-board credit. We are getting $100 each for our 7 day. The third is an upgrade in your cabin category. If you are a drinker, there is also a promo (I think in the Spring) that gives you a free drink package.
  9. My sister is currently on the Sapphire and was telling me about the Thermal Suite. I'm wondering if the thermal suite is the same on the Star. Can anyone tell me exactly what is available in the thermal suite on the Star? Also, does anyone know the current price for a 7-day cruise? Thanks!
  10. Is that what is available on the Star? I'm getting the impression that what is in the thermal suite is different on various ships.
  11. My sister and bother-in-law are currently on the Sapphire. They said that it is $199 for one person or $250 for two. They are on a 14-day cruise and that price is for the entire cruise.

    Which ships have gelato? I thought it was all of them, but apparently, that's not the case. The website says just Royal and Regal, butt I know that the Ruby has it. Anyone know? Thanks!
  13. I don't understand why anyone would want to do a city bus tour or sit by the pool all day. Everyone has different interests, which is good. Fortunately, no one is forced to care about Stanley and I'm not forced to go on a city bus tour. 😃
  14. When I cruise with my Mom in the same cabin, it's like I'm Elite, too. When my parents cruised with my sister & bro-in-law, they were in a separate cabin, but were told to go ahead and board with my parents. That was in Seattle. (the area is pretty small there).
  15. Your post made me realize that I brought candy on board from the shop in Ketchikan (which everyone sold visit, by the way). They were in a bag and box, but not pre-packaged. Like you, no one looked or asked what was in our bags. I even brought back chocolate-covered oreos from that shop for our Cruise Director and no one batted an eye when I left them for him at Guest Services.
