  1. Didn’t need to take them on our last Princess Cruise October last year.

    NZ eTA

    We got ours authorised within about 5 minutes last week.
  3. We have also been in a cabin above the theatre. We weren’t disturbed too much although they do sometimes rehearse after the late show and some noise can be heard then.
  4. Does Princess still offer the Bon Voyage Experience? I think I have the name right. Tried searching on Princess and tried the search function here but couldn’t get that to work! We will be leaving from Melbourne on Golden Princess in November and would have liked to be able to show someone around the ship before we leave.
  5. Just off Viking Star and I had both my IPad and phone connected at the same time. No issues.
  6. Not wanting to start a war here but can anyone on Ruby Princess tell me if the 15% gratuity on bar purchases has been increased to 18%? A member of staff currently on the Ruby posted a photo of a bar receipt, on Facebook, today and the gratuity was showing as 18%.
  7. One of the CSRs in the U.K. replied to my email on this subject. She said the removal of the chair was being trialled on 2 ships but from this thread it is apparent that that is not the case. She did say she had got her info from Princess USA and that they were monitoring any complaints that were received. Another case of the right hand not knowing what the left is doing.
  8. It would appear so. We have been loyal Princess cruisers for the past 15 years but are seriously considering moving to another line. 2 booked for later in the year then we will decide what we are going to do.
  9. We were very disappointed in Alfredo’s on the Sapphire. Only a few pizzas on offer and service wasn’t that good either. No interaction with the waitress after pizzas brought to the table. No offer of extra drinks. We were the only people in the night we went. It was never busy during the cruise and was used as an overspill for the International Cafe during the day. They have moved Vines, which is now merely a few tables with no bar, to accommodate this. A mistake in my opinion.
  10. We were in a partially obstructed balcony room on the Royal Princess last year. Emerald deck, I think it was E405. As far as we could tell the obstruction was the lifeboat on the deck below - Promenade deck. We were above the jewellery shop so very quiet location. No issues with the room or the views.

    Diet Tonic

    Thanks everyone. I don’t really have to have a special diet, just kinda work out (guess at times) what carbs are in my meal and adjust insulin as required. Might take a couple of small bottles with me just in case. Under 7 weeks now till we fly to Miami to embark the Viking Star for the transatlantic to Barcelona.

    Diet Tonic

    Anyone know if Viking Star has diet tonic. Have been on 2 Viking River cruises and they didn’t have it so had to take my own (I am diabetic).
