  1. We are wanting to try a med cruise but don,t know which ones have the best entertainment, anyone have any recommendations.
  2. For our first cruise experience we picked th Diamond Princess 21 day Grand Southeast Asia Tour on 29th Dec 2018. We chose that one as we were told that the waters in that area are reasonably calm which was correct. We were under the impression that this was a 21 day cruise where entertainment and food would be different each day but it appeared that it was 2 separate cruises where the entertainment and the food were repeated which we didn,t realise. There were 10 at sea days on which there wasn.t much actual entertainment but quite a lot of seminars and upselling of jewellery etc. Anotner thing we disliked was the amount of queing, on tour days we had to meet at a certain place and que for a sticker then go to the theatre to wait again before either disembarking or getting onto the tender boats. The same happens when getting back onboard. We did have a good time but were told that Med cruises offer better entertainment and also dock virtually every day so have very few at sea days which i think will suit us beter. We will give it another try in a couple of years and hopefully have a better experience.
  3. We are in Australia and a friend of ours booked for us through Princess Cruises UK and we decided that it would be better to book through the Australian Princess cruises, they wouldn;t give us our deposit so we lost $1600 but luckily the saving booking though the Australian princess cruises saved us $1900 so we were $300 in front and also the Australian Princess cruises don't have the non refundable deposit.
  4. I believe there is an app to download called Princess@sea which tells you what's happening on the ship. Do you need to have wifi connection to access this as I know that the wifi is very expensive onboard.
  5. In the speciality restaraunts onboard the Diamond Princess, is there no allowance for the cost of the dishes or do you pay the full price. For example if I got a pasta dish that would normally cost around $25, would I have to pay $25 or is the cost a smaller amount.
  6. Hi, I am trying to find out if it is worth getting the drinks package for a cruise around asia on 29th Dec 2018. The package is around $90 aus per person per day. Drinks in Aus are approx. $8 - $10 so would be between 9 to 11 drinks per day. But are the drinks the same price onboard as they are in Aus.
  7. I am going on the Diamond Princess on 29th dec 2018 for 21 days and am trying to determine if we should get the drink package, but would like to know how to aquire a drinks price list to help decide if the drinks package is worth it. Can anyone help. Thanks Steve
