  1. Thank you. Do you know if they there only there on the first arrival day, or were they there the day before as well? Many people come early.
  2. Another question for the experts:: Once you get to the hotel in Lima, when do you meet with the tour guides? Is there an actual meet and greet get-together in the evening, or are the guides just waiting at the hotel for people to arrive? I am trying to plan my day of touring in Lima and don't want to miss anything important with the cruisetour. Thanks.
  3. The Sky Princess did have the regular trivia with teams up to 6 people. In addition, they did the trivia in the Piazza.
  4. I think 6 is a good number. It's someone's choice if they want to play as a couple, but it's our choice to play with family or friends.
  5. And with unlimited internet, it will only get worse.
  6. Thank you! We are just back from 28 days (Europe/transatlantic) on the Sky Princess, and now I am ready to get excited about this trip.
  7. Time to revisit this topic. My final payment is due in a few days, Does anyone have any papers that list the itinerary for the day(s) in Machu Picchu, or could someone give me a clue how the day was organized? How was the pace? Did they go at the slowest pace necessary or were some people having difficulty keeping up? Thanks.
  8. Well then you can sit with us in the piazza. You won't be alone. 🤣. I noticed that you weren't signed up on our roll call. There are several of us without cabins assigned yet. The roll call thread is a bit overwhelming, (305 pages) but full of good info. Link to roll call
  9. Should be? That made me laugh! I can't picture me sitting in the Piazza with my luggage as the ship leaves Rome. Well now you know there are at least 3 of us in the same boat! We're leaving for Rome a few days early as well. .
  10. We are 12 days away from our cruise on the Sky Princess and haven't received our cabin assignment. I've been waiting to print luggage tags, hoping it will show up before we leave for Rome next week. Also waiting for a cabin on our South America cruise in March. I'm not worried. I know I'll be somewhere on the ship when it sails.
  11. I rarely will book a tour with the cruise company (unless I have a bunch of on board credit or limited time in port) I will usually research and book independent tours and share them on my roll call, or join someone else's tour. I do not like using consolidators as a rule because you have no idea who the tour company will be. My one experience with a consolidator was Cruising Excursions where we had a couple good tours and several not so good. We had booked a package for multiple ports. I would never use them again. I highly recommend checking out tours on your roll call. On the other hand, if you do decide to use Viator, don't forget to use the code SEPT9 for 10% off that is advertised here on CruiseCritic.
  12. We are flying nonstop to Rome in October and I booked a really cheap fare on Alitalia using eZAir. I wanted to reserve the extra legroom seats, and when I called they only had 6 of them left on the plane, I had Princess ticket my airfare so I could reserve the seats I wanted. It made my ticket into a restricted fare, but the price won't go down, and I'm happy with the flight, so it was the right decision for me..
  13. Not according to the itinerary in my cruise personalizer.
