  1. I know the FOD is fading but i for one have always liked it. At 50 it is a carry over from the previous generation. Those men (and women) are heroes for me. They collectively fought battles against discrimination, disease, and marginalization so that I don't have to. They laid a foundation for my human rights. And often it was done with sly humor and subversiveness. We know all know who Dorothy is and that has more currency than Friends of Maria Callas or Nina Simone. And those boys who were in her camp knew that life could be better over the rainbow (metaphorically) and fortunately led the way for us all. In my opinion, to have endured that struggle entitles you to a measure of silliness and I will gladly follow their lead.
  2. If your budget allows it I think it is worth it. The mini suite locations are usually fantastic. In my experience the stewards are the best on the team. In this Covid era it is possible to have day service and evening turn down. There are a couple bottles of wine in your cabin which is a nice gesture but does not seal the deal for me. The real benefit is the CC dining. Usually no wait, great wait staff, and a slightly expanded menu. My choices don't have to be everyone's but I am grateful to be able to sail CC and hope the others that do it enjoy it as much as me.
  3. I have seen Ginger Tea in the IC on the Regal, Royal, and Sky. It was a Mighty Leaf product and really good. There might have been a peach component to the blend.
  4. They are about 22" tall but you can ask Princess to provide a shower bench that will allow an individual to sit and then pivot into the shower and stand up. It is much safer. Princess suggested one two years ago for my Mother's Cabin. It worked great.
  5. I can't tell you how many young thin cute guys have trouble finding others to go on vacation with them! The struggle is real. Just hang in there-you might become an old hairy bear and then guys will line up to travel with you. I am teasing. I hope you find someone and enjoy the cruise!
  6. for a gay friendly hotel i vote for the Coconut Guest House. great ownership and management and the patrons are a diverse and fun group.
  7. Yes! you can even start the day with a Mimosa or a Bloody Mary. You can have 15 drinks a day with the package.
  8. I received an email last Thursday stating my Sept 20 cruise had been cancelled as well as all other cruises this season. I have not gotten any further correspondence about refunds etc. I see the cruise is still listed as a future cruise and was still open to book yesterday but I assume with emerging staffing issues and the massive lists of crisis related tasks to be done the website is not current.
  9. I for one hope Princess continues to ration butter in the most severe way so I can enjoy endless butter posts here! And Kerrygold gets my vote too!
  10. I received an email this afternoon urging me to prepare for my September 2020 Alaska cruise. At this point anything resembling an assurance of cruising is welcome! I understand that things can change but I am still excited and optimistic. I hope you all are safe and healthy and able to cruise soon!
  11. silly question, but is the status match a one time opportunity or does it remain in effect for all subsequent bookings?
  12. The Sky Sanctuary is available via elevator and does have its own restroom. I would say the restroom is HC accessible. There is sufficient turning radius and grab bars. The only real issue with the Sanctuary is its very limited space. Get there early to book and good luck!
  13. There is a subtle color difference in the carpet between the port and starboard sides and to my eyes the suggestion of a direction. It is far less evident than previous schemes and not as helpful, but that is my opinion.
  14. I just pulled my stateroom account from the Sky last week to check but i was not charged for my gelatos. Perhaps it was just an oversight or maybe a coincidence....
  15. There is soft serve on deck 16 for free. The gelato off the piazza has a small charge and I think it is worth it. I understand if you have the Premium Beverage package the gelato is covered under it. There is a charge for the Escape room. i have not done it and have heard mixed reviews.
