  1. This is awesome! We'll also be boarding as you get off, and in Aqua. Travelling with our longtime best friends.
  2. Can someone please tell me the order in which JetBlue loads their planes? Front to back or reverse? We have no special privilege or need that would allow for priority boarding.
  3. Mr. Worldwide, Toma and Rebellious Fish. You'd think from the description that the Rebellious Fish would be very sweet, but it wasn't. Quite delightful.
  4. Does anyone have an idea of current pricing for pool cabanas? And what does that price include?
  5. We just returned from the Grand Hawaii cruise. This was our first Princess cruise (cruised multiple times with other lines) so I don't have any other Princess ships to compare it to, but here are my thoughts. Yes, it just came back from drydock, but she is still old and it shows. Rusty areas on the balcony, leaks every day in different areas, peeling ceiling tiles in the dining rooms from apparent leaks, old fixtures in the stateroom. We had no hot water in our stateroom shower for 2 days. That being said, with the exception of a blase guest services desk and a poorly handled issue with a shore excursion, the service on this ship was amazing. Embarkation was a breeze, onboarding and having lunch in less than an hour from curbside to dining room. Our luggage was waiting outside our stateroom by 1:00. All this to say, while it did have a lot of positives, I probably wouldn't do this ship again.
  6. We had breakfast at Sears the last time we were there and loved it. Definitely on our list for this trip. We're meeting a friend who has already made the reservations for dinner, but sounds like that might be our next night's stop. Thanks for the input, all.
  7. We have dinner reservations here and it looks to be about a half mile walk from our hotel, Westin St Francis. Is this a safe area to walk? We'll be a group of 6 adults.
  8. Thanks. I think we'll most likely just return the car before we go out for dinner. Budget says their last shuttle is at 8:30. And this way we dont have to worry about a designated driver if we want to have some cocktails out.
  9. We'll be on the Grand to Hawaii in April. We're renting a car in Honolulu for the day (in port until 11 that night). We want to have a nice local dinner somewhere. My question is, is there parking at the cruise terminal if we want to go back to the ship to clean up for dinner? Or would we be better off returning the car ahead of time and Ubering to dinner (6 in our party)?
  10. Thanks, this gives me some great information. One question about the St Francis. I see landmark rooms and tower rooms. Any advantage to one or the other?
  11. Sorry, you're right, I should have defined pricey. Ideally, our budget would be under $200, but it doesn't look like that's happening, so we'll be happy if we can find something nice for under $300. Looking at doing 2 days precruise and possibly a day after we get back on the 21st.
  12. For some reason, hotels for my sail date are pretty pricey for the Fisherman's Wharf area. Maybe, I'm looking too early, sail 4/6/19. So, I'm expanding my search to the Union Square area. Does anyone have first hand experience with The Donatello?
