  1. I am new to medallion cruising. I downloaded the app and took care of everything including uploading passports with no problems. My brother is cruising in another cabin and not computer savvy at all. I downloaded the medallion app for him but when I click on the "get ocean ready" tab I get a message saying "could not start ocean ready". I tried different devices, apple and android, no luck. Is there another app we are supposed to download also? Anyone else experience this problem?
  2. I would care. One of the best perk for us, we really enjoy that relaxing start to the day and club class. I only stay in suites if I get an upsell offer but would most definitely rethink taking an upsell if they eliminate the perk. There is enough space in a mini suite for us so extra space not essential. We are elite so laundry and mini bar also not essential. I would really miss it if gone.
  3. Just curious...is Embassy breakfast a buffet like Hyatt? Another vote from me for Hyatt although bfast not good.
  4. She did sit out a couple times but noise of the wake bothered her hearing aids. You can enjoy that view from inside the cabin too. It was beaùtiful!
  5. You are very welcome! I also could not find any info on these suites before we sailed, so happy to help. You are correct, cabin door is just behind my mom's head in pic 3. I'm posting another pic I found that shows the closets and door to bath area and a view from the balcony. Cabin door is between the couch and these closets. Glad you booked 726 instead of 727, you will love it! Enjoy your cruise!
  6. Hi crazy. My brother and his wife stayed in PR726 in Feb. this year. My mom and myself stayed in PR727 which is the identical suite on opposite side of ship. I have pics below of mine, which like I said is identical to PR726. He had no complaints about the cabin. My suite was awful for noise. The bathroom pipes were constantly making loud noises and about 4 of the 10 days the sewage smell was terrible. If you are in a wheelchair you cannot access the balcony. My mom couldn't get her walker through also. Lots of motion in the back which you may be used to but we were not. That's not the cabins fault. These suites do not have the layout of other suites we stayed in but does have all the perks. If not for the noise, smell and motion I would book it again. Like I said earlier my brother was in PR726 and did not experience these issues.
  7. Here is my report as promised, lol. Cabin is PR727. This accessible suite was more like a mini suite. Not very accessible for a wheelchair user. Balcony doors dont open wide enough for my mom's small walker to go through so no way any wheelchair will. There was a sewage smell for awhile each day. The drains in the bathroom make loud noises. On the plus side we were able to use the balcony while going through the canal. My recommendation is not to book this cabin. Another accessible cabin on a different deck maybe, but not this one! I have to say I was not a fan of the crowds at the grill and ice cream counters. I guess I became used to the larger ships. Have a great cruise!
  8. I will check out. My brother brings a teeny tape measure so I will measure it. If what I have been reading is true, you cannot use these balconies when going though the locks due to a safety issue. I will not be happy about that. Also heard that the cabin is extremely noisy, not like like other aft balconies. I did receive quite a discount to book it so I won't complain. I'll check back after I board.
  9. It does say in the description of the promenade accessible suites there is not a access to the balcony for wheelchairs. I don't know about the other suites on island. Fortunately my mother can walk a few steps if she has something to hang on to. She could go out there if I put the balcony chair close to the door. If the seas are a bit rough she won't be able to use it without my help. As I said earlier, I will definitely be taking photos of the suite because you just can't find any photos anywhere on either of the promenade deck suites they added during the refit. Stay tuned! I board in 12 days, lol.🌞
  10. Princess doesn't do anything that elaborate. As far as I know you get priority in choosing your disembark time and go to a lounge with coffee, juice and pastry. Last 3-4 cruises we were in a suite and chose the latest time. We waited in one of the dining rooms. You had a "genie"?! Wow! I sure wish we had dedicated elevators because even leaving your cabin early it has been a madhouse!
  11. We have been in suites for the last 2-3 cruises due to accepting upsells. Now I am spoiled! I wouldnt pay regular price though. In a couple weeks we will be in a suite, aft on the promenade deck, Island Princess. When I tried to book an accessible mini suite they offered this suite at same price so I took it. I have not heard anything good or found any pics of this suite since I booked it. I will be posting my opinion with pics. For me it is the space I love most.
  12. Yes they do! Hamburg, hotdog, spaghetti and such. I have been known to get a volcano from the kids menu! Maybe someone can post a menu for you.
  13. In my opinion, no. They have a few my sister in law likes.
  14. Yes, I think your right. We booked one of the aft suites on the promenade deck of Island for next month because I happen to hit a really good deal. It has been booked for more than a year. I was hoping they would offer a upsell to a different suite but no such luck. You can't find much info on those suites and I have a feeling they are full of vibration from being added later.
  15. Another vote here for the suite breakfast. Such a wonderful start to your day! Nukesubsailor is right.....very hard to go back, even to a mini! We have taken upsells to a full suite for about the last 3 years so gonna miss it next year. Enjoy all your Perks and the suite!
