  1. My photos are from the Royal, a sideways cabin on Caribe. Without checking, I think it was C311. FYI, if you see sideways configurations on opposite sides of the ship and white space between, these are air vents. You will hear noise but it’s constant, not loud and kind like a white noise. Linda, lets get together after I get back and I’ll show you lots more photos. 🙂
  2. If you’ve re-booked, pretty sure everything goes back to zero. You lose any tours or anything pre-booked using OBC. With your new booking, you can rebook using whatever OBC you have with the new promotion.
  3. A little bit of both regarding the closet. With the layout, the sleeping area is on one side with the desk on the opposite wall. There’s an opening next to the desk with a closet area with a combination of wardrobe, open shelving and open closet. At the end of the closet area is the bathroom which makes it quieter and more private than other cabin configurations.
  4. The staggered boarding times are suggestions, not enforced. It’s not that people ignore the times... they are merely suggestions so if you don’t want to follow the suggestion, it’s your choice.
  5. Unfortunately, I don’t think you can get OBC in lieu of the beverage package when booking the Sip ‘n Sail. That makes it kind of useless to me as I rarely drink so I’d be getting the equivalent of the Soda & More. I was able to re-book my two upcoming cruises under the S&S last year and got $600 in OBC instead of the beverage package.
  6. It also depends on the time of year. During peak vacation season, particularly school vacation weeks or sporting events, in Ft. Lauderdale, there can be huge delays checking in and going through Security at FLL. I’ve been on ships when disembarkation was delayed and people were screaming to be let off the ship as they’d miss their flight. Why chance it unless you are very flexible and have alternate plans in place.
  7. There’s no pool in the Sanctuary on most Princess ships. The only ships with a pool actually in the Sanctuary are the Coral, Sea and Sun Princess. The Lotus Pool is free for any adult who wants to go there and has nothing to do with the Sanctuary.
  8. I think the Horizon Terrace near the Outrigger bar is a relatively quiet place to sit and read. There are also chairs on Promenade deck outside mid-ship and aft.
  9. I’d say closer to 45 days which is well after final payment although that might depend on the ship. This is the case with the Royal. The app and process is still a work in progress. There are still lots of glitches that people are experiencing when entering their info and ordering their Medallion. You don't have to use the app if you don’t want to. You can go to ocean.com on your device to fill out everything. I’ve read that Chrome is better than IE when using a computer.
  10. I have two upcoming cruises (B2B) and ordered my Medallion on 3/19. It arrived today. The Medallion is good for both cruises.
  11. Yea! My Medallion is on the FedEx truck for delivery today. 🙂 Looking forward to my first Medallion cruise.
  12. Passengers on the 5/4 sailing on the Royal from LA to Vancouver received a notification a week or so ago that due to new port regulations, the ship will arrive at 7:30am, not 6:30am. Princess has already changed the flights for those booked using EZ Air. Their recommended earliest flight is now 12:30pm. An 11:45am flight is a real concern with the arrival time change. I’d either do walk-off or change my flight. People are discussing options on the roll call. I’m on this cruise and booked a 3:30pm flight to start with as I knew it can be a hassle with going though US Immigration at the airport. AA changed my flight to 1:20pm so I’m still OK. I also have Global Entry which should expedite going through Immigration at the airport.
  13. Same here. I’m also on the 4/27 sailing and completed my Medallion order on 3/19. Everything looks complete and I was able to print my Medallion boarding pass. My Medallion is supposed to be mailed to my home prior to boarding.
  14. Guess I’m contrarian but I really look forward to my favorite Crown Grill menu items and would be very disappointed if they were changed or removed. Love the bisque, a medium-rare filet with loaded baked potato and the chocolate obsession. 🙂
  15. This is what I bought: Replacement Wrist Band Accessory for Fitbit Zip/Wireless Activity Tracker Wristband Bracelet (D) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HCHE6AI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_rJIOCbDD69P4V
