  1. Premium balconies on a grand class ship (Crown, Ruby, Caribbean, etc.) are mid-ship on Caribe (10) deck. Balconies on Caribe are the same size and the stateroom is the same size. Prices fore and aft are similar, mid-ship they are a higher price. (Didn't used to be that way but Princess smartened up and raised the price and called them a Premium Balcony...all about marketing.) As Nini stated it's all about location.
  2. With a land cruise on Amtrak's Southwest Chief #3 in a private bedroom CHI to LAX RT. Much more civilized than crammed into a plane.

  6. On our October Crown cruise we had the NEW robes...very nice and should fit most comfortably.
  7. FWIW...Just off the Crown and we took 24 cans (2 cases) of LaCroix soda duck taped, with a convenient handle. Checked it with our luggage and it was waiting at our stateroom door with the luggage...no questioned asked.
  8. "Ask and you will (maybe) receive." On our recent Crown cruise, our steward had a chair in our cabin about ten minutes after we asked for one...and it was in excellent condition. We used it a lot and only had to move it if we infrequently needed to get into the fridge.
