  1. That's exactly what we've been doing for years.
  2. We watched only out of curiosity....was just about as lame as we figured. Best part was Ted Lange (Isaac from the original Love Boat) showing up briefly. Typical reality show tripe. Won't waste our time watching again.
  3. We're sailing in just over 6 weeks and now are able to pick our boarding time.
  4. I apologize if this has been recently discussed, but I haven't read whether or not the Winemakers Dinner is available on the Enchanted. Sailing next month and would like to secure spots for us. Recall posters saying that the dinner has to be reserved ASAP when you board. Have done Chef's Dinner before (which was a wonderful experience), but we're interested in trying the Winemakers this time around, if possible. The last I read, believe the price was $40pp. at that time?
  5. Another vote to keep the Internet Cafe. As a person of a certain age and not overly "tech-savvy", I appreciate the space in order to spread out a bit, get help if I need it and for printing as necessary. Perhaps a few more years down the road, the need for the Internet Cafe will diminish, but right now, I say please keep it!
  6. Yep...anxious to see which color DH ends up with...LOL...we'll just try to have it fixed on sailing day. In the grand scheme of things, it isn't a big deal, of course. Just glad we're sailing again! Thanks!
  7. Thanks for your response. Yes, we want to receive the correct color of Medallion (in our case, Platinum) in the mail before we cruise. As I stated, our Princess accounts both show our correct status, both when I log in and when my husband logs in, respectively. It's the app. that is incorrect. Of course, it's not really shocking, seeing how many issues the app. has had since the get-go. Our Princess CVP didn't seem to have any answers, other than to suggest we have someone at the terminal correct it when we check-in. I got a similar response from the person I connected with on "Live Chat'. I called Princess yesterday and spoke to a girl from the Medallion App staff. She said she sent a message to one of her "higher-ups" (her words). Not holding our breath for any further action, so will just wait until boarding day to have them straighten out hubby's status level.
  8. We have an upcoming cruise in November and will finally be sailing at the Platinum level. When we log into our Princess accounts, we both are now listed as Platinum, also showing on our travel summary. When I ordered our Medallions on the app., the first order showed us as Ruby. Ok, I figured since I ordered the Medallions shortly after we returned from our last Princess cruise in May, our accounts hadn't been updated yet (completing the May cruise finally put us into Platinum status). Fast forward to Aug., checked the Medallion order again, found we hadn't been upgraded to Platinum, so decided to just cancel the 1st order and reorder both our medallions. Now, in Sept., just 2 months before sailing, was checking the app. and, lo and behold, mine shows I'm platinum, but DH shows as ruby. Have used Live Chat, speaking to our Princess CVP and talking to the dept. that handles medallion issues. No luck. All I get is wait until we get to the port....ugghh.... Why is it so hard to get something as simple as this straightened out?
  9. We got our "upgrade offer" early this AM. Not exactly like NCL. When we sent a bid on an NCL cruise a few years ago, there was the similar sliding-type meter showing "weak" to "strong" and we could put in the maximum we were willing to pay, but the Princess upgrade offer starts at a pretty high price (for their "weak" accepted minimum and the "strong" is way more than we'd ever pay. No thanks. We're staying with our original cabin (Prem.Deluxe Balc.). Thought it was odd that all the choices given us with this offer---e.g., Club Class Mini-Suite, Vista, Premium & Penthouse Suites---are available, when they're showing as unavailable for our sailing in Nov. on the Princess website. BTW, our bid through NCL was accepted--from an Oceanview to an Aft Balcony, and the upgrade price was quite reasonable, IMO.
  10. Have used EZ Air several times and are pretty satisfied so far. Only once we had an issue with luggage being lost...but that was the airline's handling, not the fault of Princess. Right now, we are booking non-stop flights only to avoid any problems.
  11. Not free on our cruise on the Ruby in May, either...$3.00 for washer and dryer (each) then, also. We bring our own detergent.
  12. Agree with others' suggestions, including Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove, Citadel, but please consider visiting the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic right at Halifax waterfront. Many Titantic related articles there, including one of the wooden deck chairs from the ship. Also, the Halifax Public Garden. Small, but lovely.
  13. Our Alaskan Cruise on the Ruby in May was the 1st sailing that deleted Victoria and substituted it with Prince Rupert. We had never been to Victoria and were very much looking forward to it (especially seeing Butchart Gardens). The people in Prince Rupert were very friendly and we made the best of it. There were only a couple of excursions available, and we chose a visit to the Musuem of Northern BC. That walk uphill from the port was pretty steep, but the Musuem had some interesting artifacts and we also saw a demonstration of local Tsimshian heritage & traditions by young local children and teens. Although we enjoyed the museum, we still were disappointed in the swap of ports.
  14. Finding this thread interesting as we're sailing in a few days out of SF on the Ruby. 1st Alaskan cruise for us and I'm pretty sure I've overpacked...I can't imagine getting all of this stuff into a carry-on only, so will have each a large suitcase & a carry-on. Bringing a lot of stuff for layering. Also going to wear our hiking shoes onboard & carry jackets to lighten the load a bit. Usually check the large bags with porters and roll on our carryons. Hoping we can drop those off in cabin before lunch.
  15. Same for us---we sail May 10th and received our medallions yesterday, Apr. 27th--13 days prior.
  16. We were able to pick our Arrival Group just about 60 days out -- in March. We're sailing May 10th. Can't pick departure group yet.
  17. If you're going to be in a cabin on Caribe deck, mid-ship, then that is a great location with, as others have said, a larger, half-covered balcony. We love the Caribe deck balconies! Enjoyed ours with an ultimate balcony dinner--plenty of room. Enjoy!
  18. Tried posting on West Coast Departures board re info. on SF cruise terminal....guess I wasn't specific enough. What we really want to know is, exactly where at Pier 27 is the pre-cruise Doc Go covid testing done for the Ruby? Is it located in the terminal---where specifically. Or, is it done outside.? 1st time embarking from SF. Will be sailing May 10. We booked with Doc Go. just in case we can't get results in time from tests done in our area before we fly out to the west coast. Better safe than sorry, so we're going to "double-test". Scheduled appts. right within boarding window (A) This has been the most stressful part of planning the cruise....LOL. TIA!!
