  1. Great review, beautiful photos. Thank you for posting! Your photos will look lovely in a lay flat photo book!
  2. I echo tcdcruiser’s response. We cruised on the Grand in October 2019 with another couple. We all felt the bed and pillow were so comfortable that we regretted not looking for tags to find out the brand so we can purchase at home. The service was excellent through the ship. We only used the stairs so I can’t comment on the elevators. Yes, the ship is old but it is still a great ship. We had a mini suite and our friends had an obstructed window view. None of us have anything to complain about our stateroom. We ate breakfast and lunch at the Horizon. The food there was from good to excellent. The Ernesto burger was delicious. I thought it was much better than the burgers at the Umani Burger Restaurant. Our meals in the MDR were very good. I didn’t experience any meals that were served lukewarm. The production shows are the same ones I’ve seen on other ships. On our October cruise, we never had a problem finding 4 seats together going to the show 10 minutes before show time for the first show. I was disappointed with the magicians, Brent and Sarah. No need to psych yourself up for the cruise. You will have a wonderful time.
  3. you can order $2 at your local branch. We usually order for tipping because it’s unique. We do tip at the specialty dining for good service in cash.
  4. The Royal Princess is a beautiful ship. Last May at the Princess Lodge every morning a mother moose and her 2 babies came and visit. You will have a great time!
  5. We’ve sailed in May to Glacier Bay and it was so foggy there wasn’t much to see. I think it’s hit or miss so early in the season. Dispute the fog we did witness a 11 story calving in front of our balcony. Heard it before I saw it. Have gone to Edicott arms in May as well. Same thing it was very foggy but I felt we saw more sea animals here. My husband said there was a small calving. I didn’t see it or hear it.
  6. I had the same problem. I retype my address and then clicked in the emergency airport and type the code. The button at the bottom changes from continue to save & cintinue.
  7. From the Oakland airport to Embarcadero is $10.45. From the SF airport to Embarcadero is $9.45. From Embarcadero to pier 27 is a 15 minute walk. The road is wide and flat.
  8. I wear my lanyard to dining room. If I need to take my iPad, I will take a small leather backpack that I put on the floor next to my feet so I don’t forget.
  9. I’ve usually stay midship on the dolphin deck due to motion sickness. It is uncovered and I don’t mind that all the floors above can see me below. But after my last cruise, it will probably be my last. I had the misfortune of having some one above that kept dropping their food on my balcony. Now that I thought thinking about it what’s to prevent someone from throwing up over their balcony and having that mess land on me?
  10. Cold lobster, I would pass. 😊
  11. I’ve gone several times in May, usually the first sailing and had great weather. A couple years ago my coworker boarded right after I returned and she had rain for their entire 10 day trip.
  12. I order large specialty coffees and bring my own mug. It just fits my 12 oz mug.
  13. I enjoyed the Princess Live but I didn’t like the layout. There were big cables on the floor - an accident waiting to happen. The new layout from post #16 looks nice.
  14. I have attended. I usually have a sock, lace beaded shawl and fingerless gloves projects. Depending how chatty the group is will drive what I will work on. 😊 I do have a lot of cute cross stitch kits that I can bring on my next cruise to share. I wish there was a digital scrapbooking group. I would love to attend.
  15. We enjoy meeting people so we always ask to share. Everyone is friendly and I enjoy listening to people’s stories. In our last cruise we traveled all the way to Alaska just to meet someone that lived only a few blocks from us. 😂 We still keep in touch after our trip. Have a great trip!
  16. Custard donuts, it’s real custard, not sugary frosting. The pot pies are yummy too!
  17. Was on the Star for Alaska and didn’t have any issues. The selection isn’t as huge as on the Regal but you can always find something you will like.
  18. I’ve tried both locations, I like the texture of the chowder in both locations but I think the The Wharf is more flavorful. 😊 Both locations are good - just my preference. 😊
  19. My flight was cancelled and the airlines put me on a later flight that only gave 30 minutes to get to my connecting flight. I explained to the airline that I was uncomfortable with this and they rebook me to a different airport (I requested) at no cost.
  20. Like t&atravel, I have only experienced this on the MedallionNet. Before my sailing, I had received an email that this was possible; otherwise I would not have known. Text worked with no problem on my iPad and iPhone in airplane mode. Pictures were very slow so I didn’t send any more after my first one. I was just happy that the text worked and my family can reach me in case of emergency.
  21. I was on the Regal and I was able to see the patter on my ipad. I was also able to text and send pictures to my family at home thru iMessage with no internet package.
  22. Thank you for this information. I was looking at the 2021 Panama Canal and it gave the illusion you can visit Panama City and still see the ship go through the locks. Since this is our first time thru the locks I didn’t want to miss it.
  23. I understand that the meal is the same as the MDR with extra entree options. But if you choose the regular meals, is your meal prepared when you order or is it still part of the mass production?
  24. I’ve seen it may in Juneau around 2am. It didn’t fill the sky. More like rainbow of light.
  25. Congratulations! I love the voice too! So many amazing voices!
