  1. Yes! you can even start the day with a Mimosa or a Bloody Mary. You can have 15 drinks a day with the package.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. silly question, but is the status match a one time opportunity or does it remain in effect for all subsequent bookings?
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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....
  9. 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.
  10. i was at Share on the Ruby and found it awesome. The food was forward thinking and delicious, the decor of the space was very nice in a Brooklyn/hipster sort of way, and the service was great. I look forward to future visits.
  11. your wife is very lucky to have such a thoughtful partner. the others are spot on about passing on canapes and maybe going to the International Cafe or buffet for a cheese and charcuterie assortment. That said, the chocolate covered strawberries are pretty cool. i like them with a prosecco or champagne-and not just for breakfast! kidding there but it does go a ways to building an argument for NOT leaving the cabin. just food for thought...
  12. Thank you so much for your insights. I am planning a trip and some members of our group have mobility concerns and this will help to give them peace of mind. Regards, Chad
  13. I also like the reflexology but my absolute favorite is the bamboo massage where the technician uses a length of bamboo as a rolling pin for really deep tissue stimulation. They will modulate pressure to your liking but I like it full on. For my money there is no better treat at sea!
  14. I would also really like to see the pool areas. I read here that the Sky has only metal ladders to get in and out of the pool rather than at least one set of steps like the other Princess ships I have been on. I have a family member with some mobility issues that really don't warrant a lift but the stairs are really helpful. Thanks for any details!
