  1. I wish I would have seen this site before we booked 8040 on Pacific last year. It just shows a blank floor above but knowing the ping pong table(s) are there makes that such an undesirable location. I'm going to bookmark that site. Thanks for posting this.
  2. I will tell you we were in cabin 8040 last fall on the Pacific and the ping pong table is right above this cabin area. I would truly stay away from this spot. Was talking to the future cruise host and mentioned the noise above us and he said he always tells people to not book that cabin. Thankfully it wasn't used that often, but when it was the banging from above was loud. Just my thought for your question. Susan
  3. Karin Luppes, Hotel General Manager is a riot. We were at her table both times at the Most Traveled Party. She is a lot of fun to talk to and just a very nice person. Love the Pacific P. Have a great time. Susan
  4. Be sure and check out the Cruisetones in the Casino Lounge. Dan (guitar) and Elliott (piano) are the nicest people and we enjoyed listening to them every evening last Aug-Sept on the Pacific P. Dan is married to Deborah who is the Destination lecturer on the cruise with you. Was always a fun evening with them. Dan learned Sundown by Gordon Lightfoot to play for me on the cruise. Hopefully he kept playing it as he did a wonderful job. Have a great cruise. Susan
  5. Thank you for the reply's. Would have to talk to the bank about Canadian currency, but I'm sure we would still have to pay the exchange rate and really not get a better rate. But will definitely find out. Euros would cost to buy from the bank and not a great rate right now. Better than in the past though. Presuming we exchange US funds at least we know that $100 bills are accepted. That was my biggest concern was the size of bills and what they would take or want. Sounds like there are things to buy. The wooden crafts caught my eye with what you wrote. Appreciate that information. Looking forward to the cruise. We lost one day in Havana and will be going to Key West. Was disappointed in this, but at least we kept the rest of the cruise days in Cuba. Thank you!!! Susan
  6. Thank you for this information. We leave next month for our cruise on the Journey and will also need to exchange money for a private excursion. I can get brand new bills at my bank right now and didn't know which was the best denomination to have. So you do recommend $100 bills to exchange? Was afraid that would be too large and they wouldn't want them. Usually take a mix of bills but this would be easier. I will get $100's and $50's then per your recommendation. Susan
  7. We were on the Ruby last week. Only option I had for the internet was 2 options for more minutes, but that is it as of now. No unlimited packages yet were offered so no "Princessconnect" internet. I had one of those packages on the Pacific Princess in Aug/Sept and I could Skype on my phone which was quite nice at times. Was able to stayed easily connected with my daughter. They are working on the Medallion services on the ship. Main thing was the screen by the cabin door that we needed to tap our cruise card on to unlock the door. Other than that, nothing else as of now. Hopefully by the time of your cruise they will have those packages to buy.
  8. Yes we did rescue the 3 men yesterday evening. Captain announced around 6:30 that they had seen a flare go off and that we were going to go towards them. At first they started to launch a tender out, but the seas were choppy and the Capt. said we would wait for the Coast Guard helicopter to get there, but that would be another hour. They finally were able to get the men on the ship. It wasn't for quite a while later that we learned there were 5 men on the fishing vessel. The Coast Guard cleared us to leave the area around 9:10 and we headed on to Dover. We could see the helicopters out searching the waters for the other 2 men. It was very sad when we learned about the 2 men that were missing. This was something to witness that I will say I'll never forget.
  9. Thank you for the information on the shuttle to Dublin. We are doing b2b sailings and we go to Dublin twice (only repeat stop) for our cruises. Have a tour on one cruise, so the shuttle will be perfect for the second cruise. Appreciate the information. Internet sounds frustrating. Last time on the Pacific in the Caribbean the connection was also horrible and frustrating. On our second cruise, August 26 they are offering the packages you can purchase with unlimited internet. Sounds pretty pointless if they have done nothing for connecting. Again I appreciate your information. Susan
  10. Thanks for the review. Your descriptions of the stops and tours was so good to read. It was very timely for us. Do you remember if Princess offered a shuttle in to Dublin from the Pier? I can't seem to find any information about this with Princess. Susan
