  1. oh yeah, Canadian retail banks charge you a higher exchange rate than most currency exchanges. Even my bank recommended that I use a currency exchange---- I do not let Princess do any currency conversions, I keep everything in USD on board ship -- and if they owe me a cash refund they send me a cheque in USD.
  2. There will definitely be more than 20 spaces -- ignore the number showing in the online excursion listing -- usually there's at least 3 or 4 busloads for each excursion and often more -- however, if it's showing as sold out, then you may be out of luck. You may want to check with the excursion desk on the ship when you board....
  3. This is all news to me -- sorry if I am reinventing the wheel however -- I have a card from March 2018 with some punches left -- a card that I purchased -- and you're telling me I can't use it on my upcoming B2B in February --- there was no mention in March 2018 that it would expire at the end of the year. I've seen no mention of how are they treating the new coffee "card" system for B2B cruises -- will a "card" expire at the end of the first 7 days?? So I would need to buy a second "card" for the second 7 days - even if I have 'punches' remaining?? This makes no sense......
  4. Recently off the Grand -- new coffee cards had an expiration date of December 31, 2018. I still have an old card with no expiry date and a couple of punches left. I'm holding on to it -- it's still being accepted for specialty coffee, but not for specialty tea or brewed coffee.
  5. Paul Burton was on the Grand in March 2018.
  6. On the Grand a couple of weeks ago, we had a chance to compare the two internet services -- we had free minutes because we're platinum. Service was slow and we lost minutes waiting for things to connect -- at the time, I blamed on the fact we were in the middle of a bunch of sea days heading to/from Hawaii. One we used up our minutes, we bought additional internet time through the new packages -- we each selected the "surf" package. It is so much faster than the regular per minute internet - a completely different experience. But it is expensive -- $14.99 per day for 'social; $24.99 per day for 'surf' and $29.99 per day for 'premium'. Towards the end of the cruise they offered it at a discount which is when we signed up. No more counting minutes!! I am hoping they change the 'free' internet packages to some portion of this new service --- either some free days -- or a discount off the regular price.
