  1. Call Princess and ask them to book a table for 12. It cannot be done online, or through a travel agent, but they should be able to help you.
  2. They were cancelled a while back because, at least at the time, the CDC conditional order to sail stated until the order expires (Oct 31st) no cruises that entered a US port could be longer than 7 days.
  3. Go into your cruise personalizer on princess.com. Click on the "Onboard Services" tab and scroll down. Your included packages are listed after the various available packages.
  4. We have been cruising since our kids were 7 and 8 (they are now 23 and 21) and all but one of our cruises have been on Princess with one being on Carnival. The cruise that my kids liked the least was on Carnival, so don't discount a Princess cruise with your grandkids.
  5. Oh that's sad. I don't think we even tried it on our last cruise, Sky in 2020, but that was because there were some new restaurants that we wanted to try, we didn't even look for it. The best had to be on the Emerald in 2016 on our Baltic cruise from London. Not really a surprise there.
  6. I don't know, but I hope they will still be available.
  7. Princess has a group from ages 8-12, but can break down groups depending on number of kids on voyages (so it may just be 11 and 12 year olds together). My kids loved the kids camps on Princess from their first cruise at ages 7 and 8. My older one outgrew the teen center by the time he was 16, but my younger son (who is not as outgoing) found his group in the teen center right through 17.
  8. You are correct! Sorry for the misinformation.
  9. Per the TA webinar last week, I believe, the Dine my way is available upon booking for those who are platinum or elite status, and everyone else at final payment. As for arrival and departure groups, they weren't mentioned, but I think that they will be available at final payment.
  10. I didn't read all of the replies, so I apologize if this has been addressed. How old are your kids? I know that you mentioned teens, but what are there ages. Our first cruise was Alaska back in 2007, my kids were 8 and 9. We did a minisuite on the Coral. Starting with our next cruise we did 2 cabins, 1 balcony and 1 inside. At that point, technically, I was in the balcony with 1 kid and my husband in the inside with the other, both kids slept in the inside with my husband and myself in the balcony right across the hall. We also used a walkie talkie with a monitor function in the cabins at nigh
  11. I would assume you are correct.
  12. There are also a couple of water companies that are doing paper type containers in an attempt to do away with the single use plastics.
  13. Unless I am using a different form they do not ask for a voyage number. They ask for confirmation number, ship and sailing date.
  14. I think it depends on the kids. My kids (now 22 and 21) have always enjoyed Princess. My younger son especially really found people in the kids/teen centers, but had a harder time once he aged out, but he is much more reserved and has a hard time putting himself out there when not in an organized group. My older one on the first day of the cruise would sit outside the teen center with Cards against Humanity and meet other teens, then again, my older son LOVES the art auctions.
