  1. Can you refare if you booked your cruise with a TA and not Princess directly? Or will I need to cancel that booking and then re-book with Princess?
  2. I've heard great things about El Covento (including the above comments), but I wholeheartedly recommend Casablanca if you're looking for a really nice place to stay. Best part of it all is that it's across the street from Punta de Vista restaurant which has excellent food and service!
  3. Best bet is to call Celebrity rather than try to do it online, especially with the one that is sold out. I honestly have no idea what their policy is though in terms of rebooking at a lower price.
  4. Then that's a recent change. My wife and I tried to get both back in 2016 and were denied. We were told then it was one or the other, not both.
  5. When I sail on Celebrity, I will only do Concierge. I've done Aqua Class once and that was one time too many for me. (Not a fan of Blu and its menu.) IMO, you made an excellent choice. Obviously a junior suite is better, if only in terms of more room, etc., but I think you'll like your choice.
  6. My wife and I have been on 3 Celebrity cruises and we've gone to Qsine on each cruise. However, we will definitely not be going to LPC. It holds no interest to either of us. Qsine was fun, this doesn't look like fun.
  7. As someone who has worked at a movie theater (albeit 35-ish years ago), I can tell you right now you're not buying popcorn but rather the container. Theaters won't confirm that, but I can. I only know this is because I got free popcorn, and drinks, all the time when I worked there. Their cost for popcorn is extremely cheap because they literally buy it by the ton.
  8. If you can bring anything you want, then bring foil. LOTS of foil. Not the heavy duty kind. Wrap the egg tightly at first, at least an inch or so thick, then get it "looser" as you continue. I did this in my physics class in my junior year in HS. We had to fit in in a 6"x6" box. My egg did not break. I was one of 2... out of 50+.
  9. I've got 3 countdown going right now! First up is an all-inclusive in Playa del Carmen in 33 days! (Yep, leaving on Christmas day!) Next our Celebrity Equinox cruise in 261 days. And finally, for our 25th anniversary, our Panama Canal cruise on Island Princess in 534 days. Lots of planning going on here! 😊
  10. I've been a member on these boards since 2003. And not a week goes by that I haven't seen a brand new dress code thread. Every cruise section has them, whether it's Princess, Celebrity, Carnival, etc. Heck, one of the first threads I was involved in was a dress code thread and the running joke in that thread was that someone was going to buy a denim tux and wear it. I never did find out if he did it or not.... One thing that is consistent with CC in all the time I've been a member is that there are dress code threads, food threads (both complaining about and raving about), chair hog threads, and how _____________________ cruise line is cutting things.
  11. I loved breakfast in Blu, hated the dinners. Personally, I'd do something other than Blu for dinner, but you may find it to your liking. You may want to talk with the Maître d' early on in your cruise and see if he can give you a preview of each days' menu for dinner. Then you can decide if you want to eat there or go elsewhere.
  12. While I've never done it, nor do I know of anyone who has done it, I'd think it most likely wouldn't work because of the wi-fi constraints on cruise ships. Best way to find out is to either try it yourself or call Princess to see what they say about it.
  13. Bingo. Time to end this contentiousness with that comment.
  14. Maybe not your dog, but for what my grandson needs, it was the appropriate amount of time. Not every dog is trained to do the same thing.....
  15. The part I highlighted in red is 100% incorrect. A legitimately trained service animal must be be trained by a professional. Otherwise it will not fall under ADA guidelines and, therefore, is not a "legal" service animal. Seriously, does anyone here know exactly what goes into the training of these animals? It's not a weekend course. It's weeks, sometimes months, of training. Not only for the animal, but for the owner as well. My grandson and his dog trained together for 2 weeks straight together. Prior to that, she had been trained for 6 weeks. After she joined him and his family there were spot checks to make sure that he maintained the proper training of her and that she was not treat "just as a family pet". He has had her for years and there's still the occasional check in. There are way too many assumptions going on here about what's legal and what's not.
