  1. Ah coffee. To purchase coffee card or not purchase, that is the question. Astro Flyer mentioned "the coffee machines in the buffet made filtered coffee from ground coffee." Is this an acceptable option? Remember the dreaded coffee syrup.
  2. Thank you so much for your postings Steelers0854. We are doing this cruise on Regal March 1 and your preview was delightful. Happy sailings to you!

    Upsell?

    I presume you mean mini suite. Nice cabins.
  4. Got a free upgrade to mini on second cruise with Princess. Never since. Great cabin. Nice little sitting area and bathroom with full size tub. Wife loved it. On upcoming cruise in March on Regal Princess received upsell offer for mini for $200/pp. Free is better.
  5. Back to original topic: Oh come, come. Muster drill is part of the cruise experience. On Princess it's rather painless. I just did a Carnival cruise and what a pain in the a**! On Princess we just wait in our cabin (been Lido forward many times) and zip down, watch the show, and back to fun! You really have to relax.
  6. On the Grand class ships they have a continuous promenade around the ship for walking. On the Royal class they do not. Many people considered this a negative. I guess this is not on your radar scope. I'm interested in what other people might think.
  7. Nice review. We will be doing this cruise in March. I haven't been on the Regal. Was the Promenade an issue for you?
  8. A good entertaining read is Michael Crichton's "Pirate Latitudes", especially if you are cruising Caribbean.
  9. Hi Folks, What's the current embarkation procedure for Regal Princess departing Port Everglades, Eastern Caribbean itinerary? I haven't cruised in awhile. Earliest boarding time? How does Medallion work? Etc. Thanks in advance for your replies.
  10. Hi Folks, Headed to Fort Lauderdale for cruise in March and planning to spend some pre-cruise time at Hollywood Beach. Anybody use airbnb for accommodation on Hollywood Beach? Any reports of experience good or bad? Any specific property recommended? Thanks in advance for your replies.
  11. Hi Folks, Headed to Ft. Lauderdale in March for a cruise on the Regal and plan to spend a couple days pre-cruise on Hollywood Beach. Can anyone recommend a good hotel along the Broadwalk? We have stayed at the Marriott and Margaritaville but they are too expensive. Looking for one of those funky hotels along the Broadwalk. (But not too funky) Thanks in advance for your replies.
  12. Hi Folks, Headed to Fort Lauderdale in March for cruise and will go down early to spend a couple of days on Hollywood Beach. Can anyone recommend a good hotel along the Broadwalk?

  13. New to Carnival. If it's raining day of beach excursion, can you cancel and get refund?
  14. Cool. Good coffee is hard to find.
