  1. I loved the afternoon tea on the Grand! The only thing I wish they would change is I wish they would add the option of different teas. That's one of the things I love about tea houses is trying new flavors. But the food and service are great and it is "included" as my dad calls it! LOL :)
  2. When I saw this post I had to go right to the menu to make sure my beloved beef cheeks were still there and they are!!! LOL One of the best dishes I had on the whole cruise!!!
  3. Yes I paid for it a few months ahead of time on my credit card!
  4. My parents did the vow renewal last July on the Grand. My sister and I paid for it and it was the best $225 we ever spent! The ceremony and flowers were beautiful. We had a private ceremony, I think because we had about 40 people attending, but right before their renewal three brides and grooms exited the chapel, so I assume they had a group ceremony. The photographer was great. He got so many great pictures. My parents ended up buying a ton and they never said how much they paid, but did say it was a pretty penny!
  5. FYI Bingo was not $59 for one card, but one of the princes for multiple games on an electronic device. There are lower prices. I paid $30 for paper cards for the whole session. On our cruise there was trivia, zumba, different arts and craft classes, wine tasting, more trivia, bingo, game shows at night, music trivia type games at night, singers in the lounges, and much more. We had an amazing time on our 10 day cruise!!!
  6. Sorry! It's not called beef cheeks but that's what I call it! LOL Here it is... Buckwheat Pappardelle wide ribbon pasta, celeriac, nebbiolo-braised beef cheek Here's a pic...
  7. We loved Sabitini's and can't wait to eat there again in February! The beef cheeks were to die for!!!
  8. This is the parpadelle with beef cheeks. It was the very best thing I ate on the entire 10 day cruise I was on! It is also one of the best things I've ever eaten. It was just so delicious! If it is not on the menu when I go back in February I may cry! LOL
  9. I must try this in February!!! Not sure how I missed it last year!!!!
  10. We were on the Grand with my 12 year old niece last July. She had no interest in the kids club. She also slept til 11 or so each day we weren't going into a port! LOL The pools were cold so she never swam, but we did play games that we borrowed from the library. We sat on the deck quite a bit looking for whales. She ate off the adult menu in the MDR and we did Crown Grill (she loves steak) and Sabatini's. She had the soda package so she enjoyed several fruity non alcoholic drinks! She went to the theater to watch The Greatest Showman with her mom one afternoon. She played trivia with us almost every afternoon. She said she had a great time and she can't wait to go again in February! There is a lot to do on board for the kids. One afternoon on a sea day they had the piazza all set up for kids to do activities, there was face painting, and other stuff (I wasn't paying attention 100%). But the kids were having a blast.
  11. I've only been n one Princess cruise so far but these were my faves... Beef Cheeks at Sabatini's (that's not the name of the dish, it's a pasta dish with beef cheeks but I can't ever remember the name). I dream about this dish and cannot wait for Feb 2020 to have it again!!! Goat Cheese Souffle in the MDR The pizza from the lido deck. I can't tell you how many times we ate there for lunch and snacks! LOL Rum Raisin Ice Cream. Soooooooooooo yummy!
  12. Hi all, For those of you that have been on the 10 day to Mexico, do they have any kind of Mexican food in the MDR during the cruise? Taco night or something like that? My cousin is a huge mexican food fan and she is really hoping they have some type of mexican on the cruise! If anyone has menus from 10 day on the Grand that would be awesome! Thanks, Tina
  13. Yes! That is the dish! I just call it beef cheeks! i did look at the menu the other day and it’s still in there I’m just hoping nothing changes in the next year!!!
