  1. I recently got off the Caribbean Princess, my first Princess cruise. Things bothered me on that ship like the small showroom, crowds and line ups and loud music. Now I read the same criticism here about Island Princess, the next ship I booked! Is this a trend on Princess to jam in more people and take away public space? On Caribbean Princess people complained so much about having to wait an hour or more to get a seat in the theater, that the cruise line had to do some encore productions in the afternoon (not all shows) and the shows were simulcast in the Exploration bar (not the grand shows, must be copyright issue). So I am not impressed. I was always curious about Princess. I wonder why the cruises are more expensive if they don't have much added benefit. What is the added benefit for the price? And now I read the Island Princess has an inner gym, that is a first, no windows.
  2. Can you ask your room steward for pen and pad?
  3. I notice that on Carnival. A deal comes and goes in a day! Sent from my SM-G965W using Tapatalk
  4. I read here and there that food on Ovation is not that great. Why this ship in particular? Sent from my SM-T377W using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks. Mum's the word. Should tell Ncl. They are always looking for ways to be cheap!
  6. Do you still get a platinum gift on a six day cruise?
  7. Singles always pay double for any cruise. If you go with somebody, you both pay. So if one cancels and claims it with insurance, the other person is stuck paying double. If the no show doesn't make a claim they lose their fare but port taxes are refunded. So it is still two people paying for the cruise.
  8. Are bottles of water included in bottomless bubbles?
  9. I am booked too and get air one way with a charter company then home from New York on Air Canada. Sometimes if you check a search on Expedia, multiple flights for your whole fares you can find a good price. My US friends often book transatlantic air with Carnival and get good prices.
  10. I think since the table cloths in the dining room disappeared, except for elegant nights, the dining room experience has gone downhill and the food just doesn't look as nice anymore. Not special anymore. So maybe we just think things aren't as nice ...
  11. Is the new ship being built in Finland rumoured to do any northern cruises or Baltics or a TA including Iceland, Greenland ... like Legend did a few years ago?
  12. I booked today the Europe Med. cruise from Barcelona 12 day May 30 and 13 day transatlantic from Barcelona to NY June 11, 2020 on Carnival Radiance (formerly Victory before refurbishment) There are 3 Med. cruises before the TA. Got an email from Carnival yesterday and a call from my PVP
  13. I am on Carnival Horizon transatlantic and there is a small late night buffet at 11:30-1AM Some salads, sandwiches, hot dogs, cookies, a few other things I can't remember. Only went once so far. Only been on 5 nights so far. The pizza is delicious. 4 or 5 choices of pizza. Sent from my SM-G955W using Tapatalk
  14. A travel blanket sounds like a great platinum gift. Hope we get that on Horizon. Sent from my SM-G955W using Tapatalk
  15. Ruth C My sister once had a problem walking in a hotel to front door for cab etc and the hotel sent a person and wheelchair to her room to bring her down. She tipped the person. Sent from my SM-G955W using Tapatalk
