  1. Pretty amazing trip. Even with the political unrest in Peru. We want to go back and do it all again.
  2. We were very happy with the way the Sapphire handled in the Antarctica last December. You know how that area of the world can be. So maybe you are right Coral.
  3. Don't think they do. That would be up to you to pick and choose items you think are lower sodium. If sodium is a big concern you would probably have to setup something with the lunch dining room staff if the dining room is open for lunch.
  4. Wow. How things can change in 9 months. We sailed the Sapphire for 33 days in December. One of the best cruises we have taken. Crew were top notch. We ate in Savoy. We hated to leave. Hopefully your next cruise will be better.
  5. If you have the whole day just sign up for the Princess Transfer. If you are familiar with Uber call them. Last resort a taxi. Just my opinion.
  6. My only concern with this is where the inside cabin was located. If the cabn was all the way forward or aft there is no amount of money offered that would make me take it.
  7. 😀 Good Day. I'm not trying to be funny but I have never heard the term Day Suit.. Sorry, I live a sheltered life. LOL Mexico cruises are pretty simple. Wear what you would if you were going out to a nice restuarant for dinner. A jacket would be nice but now a days Princess seems to look the other way. Just please no shorts at dinner Lunch in the dining room is casual. On the other hand if you love dressing up as we do skys the limit. Have fun it's a vacation..
  8. We did the package many years ago. We flew in Late from Los Angeles. A rep. was waiting and put us in a taxi to the hotel. After we checked in at Captain Cook we had to find a luggage cart and take our bags to the room. Everyone else had gone home. The bus transfer the next morning was easy. Nice drive. I think we would try the train next tune if available. The bus seating was cramped;, I'm tall. And the bus was cold. Some didn't bring any type of wrap with them on the bus and were uncomfortable. I think the train would be a bit more enloyable.
  9. Just curious how was the movement up front in the cabin? Thanks
  10. I have to agree that most of the time the Elite canopes were some what dry and to some degree tasteless On one occassion our travel agent sent us canopes for booking. I was surprised how much better the canopes for a fee tasted. FRESH. what a difference.
  11. It boils down to what time you show up for dinner and how many others show up at the same time. Only one time we waited a few minutes and a couple times we had another table. ALL the staff we had in Club Class were exceptional. We loved the experience.
  12. We have been on both and like them both for different reasons but if I had to pick one it would be the Sapphire.
  13. 😱 LOL I'm shocked!!!! You have never been on either?????? I would have thought you had been on them all.
  14. I think going forward EVERYONE should send their complaints to the above email address. It's fine to discuss it here but maybe if the powers that be get enough emails they will rethink the new customer service. Mr Padgett you have been forwarned.
  15. Not sure about international cruises but local cruises are well celebrated. Decorations in the Atrium, crew members celebrate and dressup.also. A fair number of people bring costumes.
  16. Would anyone have the itinerary for the 16 day out of :os Angeles? Princess not letting me on the website.. It would be nice to know where we are going as we booked a cabin. LOL
  17. Oh you say you wanted fresh towels daily? A towel Freshenr charge. Do I get a prize for this new fee?🙂
  18. Of course you would bring up gratuities AGAIN. PLEASE take bus tours and move on.
  19. We have back to backs on the Diamond next year. Leaving from Singapore and eventually returning from Tokyo. Booked airline seats through EZAir. Each one way. It was easy.
  20. OP, do you have any issues using the stairs? The only drawback to Botticelli is if you have to use the elevators. It can be a long wait between elevators. Also depending on the weather it can be a bit bouncy back there at times. Otherwise all good.
  21. We were on the Sapphire for 31 days in December and thought the majority of the food to be outstanding.
  22. I still hope they post late ship arrival times. I'm not fond of waiting in the terminal for the ship to be cleared. I think that was one of the pluses .
