  1. Really interested in this topic. We are cruising Princess for the first time in January 2020 so any insights, whether we call them 'hacks' or not will be appreciated. We will be on the Sea Princess to Papua New Guinea in a balcony cabin which I found out after booking is mostly covered. All Ok by us - not complaining. Prior to booking we also didn't know that you could bring 1 bottle of wine per person on board. And, pay the corkage on additional bottles - bonus.
  2. Thank you very much for the information andlep. This will be our first P&O cruise so most things will be new, including 'anytime dining'. We have always wanted to do a Chef's Table experience so will take your advice and make a booking asap. Any other information you can provide to make the most of this cruise would be really helpful. Not much on the Pacific Explorer specifically on this Board.
  3. This will be our first P&O cruise and I was wanting to book the Chef's Table. Never done this before on any cruise so any useful information would be really helpful. We are on the Pacific Explorer to New Caledonia in July. 1. It is worth it? Most important. 2. Do they have this option every day of the cruise? presume it may only be available on a sea day. 3. Can we book this ahead of time? There is currently no option to do so when I log into our cruise. Any information will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  4. Inside cabin is showing $4869 pp and $10,099 pp for Princess Grill - other categories already sold out. So, there must be a mistake to be showing $725,000 unless there are quite a few people in the group booking - like lots!! Agree there were no Bogans at all, but we met a few who couldn't help telling us how fantastic they were and how many amazing 'Cunard' cruises they did, and how the food is not as good as it used to be, etc etc. Still think it was a great cruise and Cunard really know how to do Christmas well.
  5. That's a great holiday. Can't wait for Hubby to stop teaching so we can go outside of school holidays. Jealous! We are paying lots to go in July to the South Pacific - first time for us by ship and then in January to Papua New Guinea. Staying relatively local this year due to family commitments. Hope everyone is enjoying their cruising.
  6. I occasionally like to read this topic, but noticed that there has been little activity lately. Is everyone cruising? or there are no good deals? Cheers,
  7. We are going on our first Pacific Explorer cruise in July to New Caledonia. Thinking about taking a couple of shore excursions that include the beach & snorkeling. Are we allowed to take the ship's pool towels on excursions with us? Or should we pack our own from home? Thank you for your input.
