    Excited, but...

    I agree, go with what's best for you. I am Elite on both Princess and Celebrity. I much prefer X. I've been in Aqua Class on the Reflection. Blu for breakfast was good, but I wasn't thrilled with the dinner selections. My DH, on the other hand, loved Blu for dinner.
  2. I'm wondering if there's enough room for my one el giganto suitcase, rather than a standard sized one. I thought I might take it instead of two smaller ones. Anyone know the height under the bed on Grand Princess? We're sailing on 17 Apr.
  3. Will you please email me? Frances thecruiselady at hotmail.com Thank you.

    Elite bar set up

    We have booked a Vista Suite, and we are also elite, so do we get two bar set ups on this cruise?

    The moon and scheduling

    Ok I had to check as well. There will be a full moon on the Reflections TA in Nov. We will be at sea as it is on the 28th!
  6. What about the Reflection TA from Barcelona to Miami on Nov 18th?
  7. How does one pay the extra tip? Do you add it to the bill, or leave cash on the table?
  8. Could you tell me who the captain is on this sailing? Thank you!
  9. Can a recent Island Princess passanger answer this question. I'm traveling with a person in a wheel chair who does not like buffet lines.
  10. Can anyone tell me if they serve lunch in the MDR for those embarking in Vancouver, and if so in which dining room. Thanks!
  11. We stayed at Hio Raco del Pi, pre cruise several years ago. It is in a great mid Gothic Quarter location. Easy walking to almost everything of interest. Including good restaurants, and shops. Just several minutes walk to La Ramblas. The hotel is a very old building that has been completely gutted and transformed into a very simple, modern, and clean hotel. They have a very good breakfast buffet, but it is expensive. The rooms are large and very quiet. Have to say however that they were so simply furnished, that they reminded me of a college dorm room! Can’t remember if the windows open or not. But don’t recall any ventilation concerns. The staff was most helpful, and arranged a short and easy cab ride to the port. We will most likely book this hotel again when we do another TA next year. You should be well satisfied with your pick. Love Barcelona
  12. Just go downstairs and check in. Have lunch at the Water Street Cafe, by the steam clock in Gastown.
