  1. thanks i have ordered the 7pk of fitbit wristbands for the price of 1 princess branded one. Looking forward to the medallion experience!
  2. I would like to order wristbands for our upcoming regal cruise at the end of the month. I understand princess had problems with them and they are not available. I also have heard that people have used fitbit zip wristbands from amazon. Has anyone had any success with this? Do the medallions fit best in the "new style" zip wristbands or the "old style"?
  3. This is the best and most accurate answer. Well stated explaining the risks with sold out categories. Refare is not possible if category is sold out.
  4. I see a shift in art auctions/sales on cruise ships as a whole. Some lines are already ahead of the curve, princess is behind, obviously making that big push for art revenue before the auction collapse. With ships now offering relatively reliable and semi-fast internet, the perspective art buyers are now more educated and are able to get a better idea of market value and avoid overpaying. So the rollout of medallionnet is unintentionally not helping. Revenue is not being generated in the fashion it once was from auctions and cruise lines need to figure out other ways to get it using the same space, time, and clientele. A focus on art appreciation and education seems to be the trend. Celebrity offers self guided tours on ipads of their art gallery, Crystal and Seaborn have art lectures and often times a resident artist onboard. Im hoping to see more lines head in this direction and away from the park west total ship art auction days.
  5. on the crown last month, i had always slid it to green as well. My thoughts were the same as yours, it seemed like its rightful place.
  6. There were always 2 showings. Sometimes 5 and 7, sometimes 7 and 9. Either way it was always possible to go to the show. Dinner service lasted approx 1hr 15min.
  7. Didnt see any turtles. Driving was not a problem for me. Locals do drive a little fast but you can just stay to the side and they will pass if necessary. Roundabouts are a little tricky, they are 2 lanes, outer lane is for taking the next exit only.
  8. I physically carried the box directly to my cabin after boarding. I did see others with rolling wine suitcases. I believe you can give your wine to the porters but theres the possibility of having to claim it downstairs. I didn't mind carrying it once I got past security.
  9. I did notice the lotus spa pool. We did appreciate the stairs and hot tubs. We found the couple times we visited, it was either too windy or too shady for our liking. Terrace pool fit the bill each time, other then watching movies. It appeared to be at a lower water level the duration of the cruise. This did allow alot of vertically challenged people use of the pool including my wife.
  10. i was there a couple weeks ago. My wife and I rented chairs and an umbrella. They had a nifty little square pouch at the base filled with sand so they dont fly away.
  11. There was a letter delivered to our cabin. It was slid under the door sometime between 7 and 2 while we were in Curacao. I did make an attempt to find other activities, but even with a days notice there wasnt much available that fit my fancy. I did end up booking another catamaran for St Thomas, which again was cancelled due to not meeting the minimum number of guests. I was notified of the cancellation in the same fashion as before, note under the door the day before excursion.
  12. We did traditional at 7:15pm. It appeared the 5pm seating was busier, even though the 7:15 still appeared to be a pretty full venue almost every evening.
