  1. We've been following the market for about a month... I have a standing order for a lower price.. We'll see if it happens... The Markets are a little unstable right now so it could happen... 😎
  2. We will be on Princess for the first time in December. (Grand Princess to Hawaii) I'm sorry to see this tradition go away because it was unique to Princess and we looked forward the experience. But I am sure there other things unique to Princess that we will also love experiencing. The thing is, times are changing. We all (human race) need to become more environmentally aware/responsible. These things - billions of rubber pieces - end up in landfills (at best) and in the waterways. I know we will still enjoy our cruise... I am lucky to even be on the ship! Peace to all! Happy cruising!🥳
  3. Mek, Have a wonderful cruise!!! I am sure that Princess will try to accommodate you as best they can! We will be on the Grand in December (first time on Princess) and are planning to ask for the chair. Guest Services confirmed (over the phone) that it is a first come- first served basis but I am not worried. I know we can always bring in a deck chair.
  4. I don't know. Seems - from what others have said - the Grand Class ships don't. Others may know more. I would look at ship photos of the specific ship you will be sailing on. Maybe others can answer here?
  5. You both are welcome! Yeah, I tried the email and it "failed" (returned) so then I tried the message format under Captain's Circle, and had no response. So I requested it over the phone while making final payment and she found the code and sent it through! Good luck to you both!!
  6. Update: We just paid off our December cruise yesterday. I requested the hand held shower at that time. There is a code that the TA processes for the hand-held shower so we are all set!! Go for it!!
  7. You are welcome! We requested one too so we will see what happens... happy sailing!
  8. I've only been studying Grand Princess because we are sailing on her in December and they do not have them. I don't know about other/newer ships. Can anyone else offer any information?
  9. They would replace the shower head with the handheld apparatus. Very easy. I would think customer service or your Princess Cruise Consultant would make the request. I do think that they have a supply on all ships because they provide them in ADA accessible staterooms.
  10. Shhhhh, don't tell everyone but you can request a hand held shower in your cabin before you cruise and it will be waiting for you in your stateroom!!! See the review below: https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=658495
  11. Some of you are Brutal! sheesh!! If I were new to the forum, I would be crushed! I enjoyed the Blog - as I love to hear other people's first impressions! I've already contributed to the Barrel Chair thread and got stomped on so I will not say anything further on that but.... I DO have a bit of salacious info to throw out there... maybe I should start a new topic? Shhhhh, don't tell everyone but you can request a hand shower in your cabin before you cruise and it will be waiting for you in your stateroom!!! https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=658495
  12. We are sailing Princess for the first time 12-3-19. We've sailed other cruise lines before but never booked airfare through the Cruise lines. For this Cruise, we booked EZAir (domestic) for $195.94 in April. In August, I changed the airfare: (Flying in 2 days early instead of 1 day early and selected a non-stop flight.) The new pricing is $285.28 ($89.34 increase) This is still well below what I would have paid privately ($906.20) So we were very happy. Then last week, Princess Cruise fares dropped dramatically. $410 pp. I called to inquire about "re-booking". (Final payment date is 9-4-19) Even with losing a $300pp OBC, it was still a savings! Might even have upgraded to a mini suite! But there was a snag. When we booked in April, we booked under the "Come back new" promotion which ended 4-30-19. Re-booking meant the EZAir would go up - substantially! It is now $882.88 for the same flights. $597. 60 increase. So when I CHANGED the flight 10 days ago, it was still under the original booking and still covered under the same promo, thus still very low airfares. (BTW, booking our own air would be $906.20. hardly any savings between it and Princess EZAir $882.88) Moral to the story is that EZAir discounts ALSO change according to the promotion you originally booked under and whatever the current promotion is that you are re-booking under. Hope this info helps folks navigate (pun intended) the Complexities of booking a cruise. It's a first-world problem and I won't let it ruin our cruise but it was a disappointment. Reminder: : Be sure to go back into the booking (1-2 days later) and select your seats. Then go to airline site and confirm the booking number with what princess has. This was also the time to add your Mileage program numbers into the confirmation. 😉
