    Grand dry dock?

    FWIW Aboard the Grand 3 weeks ago and was told by crew the plan is for the Grand Togo to P&O. Given her age...seems right. Will miss the grand old lady.

    Honolulu Docking

    It depends. https://hawaii.portcall.com/#!?tab=2&port=Honolulu - Oahu Pier 2A/2B is the primary cruise ship dock. The Ruby will dock at Pier 2A on 14-April. However, PCL will frequently dock at the Aloha Tower IF "The Pride of America" or a larger cruise ship is in port. In these cases PCL or the small ship docks at Pier 11 (aka Aloha Tower). Check the above URL but be sure the City/Port in the upper left box is correctly selected.

    Princess grand room A608

    You are directly under the Horizon Court (buffet restaurant). You may experience noise, especially in the mornings as people, chairs and service carts move about. If you are lucky the ship will open breakfast service on the starboard side first, and port (your side) later.
  5. Thanks for the update we board on 5-Jan, Never understand why good scheduling is so hard. If possible, can you please share a photo of the 1st day patter with the current ship senior officer staff. Safe Travels
  6. Typically port changes are recorded on the Travel Summary within the Cruise Personalizer.

    Island Princess TV's - HDMI Inputs?

    FWIW Earlier this year aboard the Emerald I was able to select HDMI as the source. Aboard the Grand last week found that PCL had altered the LG TV's firmware and HDMI was no longer an available option. So, regardless of the cable connection type you may not be able to connect. I'm taking my MP4 player for the 5 Jan cruise aboard the Pacific, and I'm hoping for good luck.

    Iguazu Falls with Princess or independent?

    The falls are an easy DIY. Airport is easy short ride to falls or town. We stayed inside park at only hotel. Costly but very convenient. Be ready for hot and humid weather. Maybe brief showers. Wow....what a wonderful experience
  9. You have company. I too leave in 4 days...Grand Princess, and I have no assigned cabin. As reported....this is non uncommon.

    Princess/ Venice walking tour?

    Most smartphone GPS apps work even when you are not connected to the local cell provider. Just confirm it works before you set out. But like others, Venice is easy to get about since it is so small.

    Pacific Princess Mini Suite Qusestion

    Thanks Delta Breeze The last 2x of the Pacific I have been in a balcony but next cruise (a long one) I'm in a mini. Goog News the frig is under the TV!
  12. Is the refrigerator in the tall closets (like in the balcony cabins) or behind the cabinet doors under the desk? Hope to hear the frig is under the desk and that the tall closets have more hanger space than in the balcony cabins. Thanks!
