    Princess Gift Card - Can I gift myself?

    I just booked excursions and when you go to pay they take it out of your OBC (if you have any )and if there isnt enough there to cover you pay the balance

    BOGO Happy Hour

    Have heard that Princess will be phasing out BOGO on all ships and will introduce new offers . Dont drink much but enjoy going to happy hour

    Happy hour BOGO $1

    They are starting to cut them out on the ships so dont think you would get them in the lodges unfortunately

    Transportation Tianjin to Beijing

    We used China Highlights, were reasonably priced but was on a coach not private transfer
  10. Is it also true that Princess have done away with happy hour for all cruises ?

    What will Princess do?

    I love the Grand class ships ,Golden ,Star and Grand sailed on the Regal(3,500 pax) and thought it might be too big and crowded but this was not the case ,so well set out ,only thing I dont like about the new ships being built they are cutting out oceanview cabins ,we ended up sailing in an inside wasnt too bad but we save $2,000.00 each by not going to a balcony

    Accommodation Question

    I used amoma to book accommodation in Barcelona pre cruise ,no problems at all except remember to check if all taxes are included in the price as this is not always the case ,so what may seem cheap isnt

    No more Anytime Dining reservations???

    When we were on the Regal Princess in 2014 they had 2 lines in the atd one for people whom had booked and the other like us that didnt book ,we waited for 30 minutes whilst the booked line went right on through ,but I would still do ATD as the wait is not normally that long especially if you dont mind sharing a table

    How does anytime dining work?

    We always do anytime dining ,but on the Regal last year they had 2 lines one for people that had booked (apparently had to book in the morning) and another line for people that had not booked we waited an hour one night ,and people we new on the same cruise booked the same table at the same time every night ,defeats the purpose of anytime dining ,have only ever experienced this on the Regal
