  1. Thank you all for taking the time to provide your thoughts and comments. I will get back in touch with Princess to work this out - now that I know it is indeed possible. We would like to stay longer in QC, but other obligations prevent that. 🙂
  2. I have called Princess twice and have had two different answers, so looking for actual experience from fellow cruisers. We are considering a New England / Canada cruise this summer which ends as an overnight in Quebec City. Flights home are much less expensive with fewer or no layovers from Montreal. We could easily take a train or bus to Montreal airport from the Quebec City cruise port after spending the first day visiting the city. However, in order to make a reasonable flight on the second day, we would have to leave the ship earlier than the published disembarkation time of 7 am on the second day in port. Since we arrived the day before in the same port of of Quebec City we assumed we might be able to leave at any time we wanted. (Eg., ship arrives in QC on Aug.1., stays overnight and "disembarkation" starts at 7 am Aug. 2 - but we want to leave at 5 am on Aug. 2). The first Princess rep I spoke with said, no problem, you can leave anytime after the ship arrives on Aug. 1. The second Princess rep said, "No, the first day is consider a port day, and the second day is disembarkation. Thus, Customs will not clear the ship until after 7 am the second day and you cannot leave before then." Confused. Any thoughts would be appreciated ! Thank you!
  3. Thanks ! It came up in conversation with a friend so she used her business phone with international calling - yes they are open!
  4. Good morning, I don't see this info posted on their website and a Google search did not help. Does anyone know if the Sunset Bar is open on Christmas Day? Thanks ! Andy
  5. I am specifically wondering about the Sapphire Princess and the Crown Princess. It seems unwieldy if I want brewed (not syrup) coffee that is available with the package that I would have to go to the IC, wait on line, get my coffee and then head over to the buffet or MDR for breakfast. That is what I am trying to ascertain. Thank you.
  6. Good morning, Have been searching the boards but can't seem to find a definitive answer. This question only has to do with the availability of freshly brewed coffee, which I understand is unlimited with the package. Can that coffee be obtained at the MDR and buffet if you have the package, or is it only available at the IC? Thank you. Andy
  7. Hi! We will be joining you on the Baltics cruise - less than 2 weeks now ! Are considering the coffee package card. Do you know if they tend to have any specials the first day that may be cheaper than ordering it pre-cruise? Thanks !
  8. Here is a pic from our Nieuw Amsterdam Med cruise in 2016. A very friendly and courteous young man!
  9. Hello all, We are booked on our first ever Holiday Cruise on the Koningsdam this year. This cruise includes both Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. So, question - are there special menu items in the MDR for Christmas and NY Eve? Or, should we be thinking about booking a reservation at one of the specialty restaurants to celebrate those evenings? Honestly, we have been so happy with the meals in the MDR in the past that, at this point, we only occasionally get to a specialty restaurant. Thoughts? Thank you !
