  1. Thank you! We had a great time yesterday with the family and a very big turkey!
  2. Royal class ships are my favourite. Beautifully decorated, classy ships. I can't think of one thing I don't like! So much so, we're now booked on Enchanted for 2021. We were able to book our favourite Royal/Regal cabin L102. Love having lunch/dinner on that huge balcony. Now looking at Discovery for 2022!!
  3. We booked Enchanted Princess Trans-Atlantic for April 2021 last month. We have a specific cabin in mind and to get it we need to book early. We check every day for price drops and promos and being this far out I'm sure something will come up for us. If I were you, I would book your cabin now and then monitor for reductions.
  4. Unfortunately, CC dining is only available to the guests in that designated CC suite. Personally, I would just get a standard mini-suite and you can dine together in the MDR and with the money you'll save you could all dine in specialty restaurants together. CC is very expensive for the amenities that you get. Not worth it, in my opinion, but I'm sure others will disagree.
  5. Our neighbours just returned from their cruise and had a Club Class Mini Suite. They said that it was just okay. Dining is still in MDR, just a separate location and the food was fine, but not memorable. They said that the price they paid was really not worth what they received. They had expected something "special" and it just didn't live up to their expectations. It is not like Blu on Celebrity at all! Well worth the price to have a dedicated restaurant. I'm sure that some folks just love CC, so to each their own.
  6. We always book Lido or Marina deck forward cabins on either Royal or Regal. These are Deluxe (with small sofa) Obstructed Balcony Cabins with HUGE balconies. The obstruction is that the balcony railing is metal instead of plexiglass. Other than that, the views are amazing........basically the same as the bridge! The best thing is that these cabins are priced lower than a standard balcony (tiny) with no sofa. For us the best cabins on the ship for the price.
  7. Not available on Regal or Royal. These cabins are new to Sky and Enchanted. We always try to book the forward deluxe balcony (obstructed) cabins that are far forward on Lido or Marina. Huge balconies and you get a small sofa. These oceanview cabins have no sofa, just a large window.
  8. Thank you! I always think it's just me! Just when I wanted to upgrade my cabin.......darn it.
  9. I've been trying to access the website and keep getting a "technical difficulty" alert and "try again later". Anyone else having this issue?
  10. Why would you think that? Most folks with AFIB live completely normal lives and participate in all kinds of activities. My husband was diagnosed with AFIB years ago and was prescribed meds to control it and to prevent the risk of stroke. We've have cruised numerous times since then with his physicians blessing. Please don't misinform people who have medical issues that you know nothing about. Always talk to your doctor about your own specific issues and follow their advice.
  11. We always tip $2.00 if it's just coffee. If we add some pastries and juice, then usually $4.00. If it's a full meal with a beverage, then $5.00+. All amounts are for two people.
  12. Letting us pre-book excursions, specialty restaurants, bev packages, etc. online using our OBC. Celebrity does that and we had everything paid and done with using our OBC. So convenient!
  13. Because, of course, Princess will make an exception for you and only you. Some folks are so filled with entitlement and self importance! I'm actually a bit embarrassed for you.
  14. The list is endless! I've never had to ask anyone what to do on my vacation once I became an adult. Do what you like!
  15. April 2021 Enchanted Princess trans-Atlantic booked last month.
  16. Someone reported here a couple of weeks ago that while they were on the ship they were told their cards would expire at midnight on August 31st NO EXCEPTIONS. I can only assume there was no reprieve.
  17. No doubt this has been asked and answered many times before, but I just cannot find it. We have a terrific casino rate discount with HAL....basically 30% discount on any cruise we book. Saved thousands over the years. What do we need to do to qualify for the Princess casino rate. Yes, we do use the casino daily on all of our Princess cruises. Or, do you know who we should contact in this regard. Thank you!
  18. Yes, you pay cruise and airfare at final payment! Princess is certainly the way to go for booking flights!
  19. So, I just did mock bookings for April/May 2020 Trans-Atlantics to see what airfares are being offered. I cannot believe how inexpensive these fares are with Princess. Toronto-Ft. Lauderdale-Copenhagen-Toronto is $895.00 (Canadian) total for 2 people!!!! What!!!! Others were in the area of $1000.00 for two! I'm now so excited to see what our fares will be for our TA in 2021!
  20. Well, my jaw just dropped! Darn close to being free flights!! I don't think we can expect anything that good! We'll just have to wait til fares are released......about 330-345 days in advance. For us that means not until May/June 2020. We're prepared to book our air immediately on release and then watch for price drops. Thank you for sharing this story!
  21. Wow! What a savings! I'm hoping that we can do as well as you. We have used EZ Air for a few Caribbean, Mexico and Pacific coast cruises in the past and the fares were quite favourable. I didn't expect EZ Air to offer such good prices on a TA cruise. Thank you for sharing!
  22. Just tried it. No problems here.
  23. We're booked in L102 on Enchanted. We've had these forward cabins a few times and love them!
  24. Thanks, Jim! Just what I wanted to hear....fingers crossed for us! Since our cruise isn't until April 2021, we have to wait quite a long time before perusing air.
  25. Thanks everyone for your advice. We did a mock booking for a similar trans-Atlantic cruise in spring 2020 and the air fare with the airlines was almost $6000.00 (Ca. $)!!! Hoping E-Z Air can give us those flights for alot less. I won't pay as much for air as I pay for a 14 night cruise! Yes, paying in Canadian dollars also makes it so much more expensive for us.
