  1. Thank you for the info - this is perfect for us!
  2. We are looking to book a Baltic Cruise and possibly staying in an inside cabin for the first time. DW is not thrilled, but willing to try it out once. The savings is pretty significant and would pay for a pre and post trip. Up to now, we always have had a balcony. My question to the Princess experts is - Which should I choose - a sideways cabin or the standard. Is there any benefit to either of them as far as size or comfort or layout? TIA Ron
  3. This menu looks exciting. We are on the Sky in March of 2020, and we will be eating here. I still have great memories of our dinners at Sabatini's. One time on one of our Mediterranean cruises, we happened to eat at Sabatini's the night we stopped in Naples. They told us, they just picked up fresh Burrata that day in town and it was amazing!
  4. Excellent review, thanks for sharing your experience. This cruise is one that we are seriously looking at.
  5. I would contact the local Chabad - I would think they would be much more responsive.
  6. Nice review, glad you enjoyed the Star Princess, she is a lovely lady. Would love to do Alaska one day, but DW is a warm weather person, so not sure if it's for her.
  7. Nice to hear. This is why we cruise Princess, we always get treated wonderfully, from the time we book our travel, to the time we leave the ship. I've never experienced anything less than stellar service.
  8. We haven't done fixed dining times in years. We like the flexibility of eating when and where we want. I remember when the second seating was at 8:30 and you weren't out of the dining room until after 10. That is way too late for us. If we are attending a show, we plan our dining around that. We just are happy being on a ship at sea. Food for us is secondary. We also are not eating at the dining room much anyways. So many other choices, and our next cruise on the Sky Princess is going to include La Mer. Excited to try that.
  9. Following along, thank you for sharing your experiences of this exotic adventure!
  10. DW and I have sailed on both the Royal and Regal several times and enjoyed them very much. I have to say I'm surprised at the omission of Crooners. It's our routine to have a martini every evening before dinner there. Not happy with that change. The Vista Lounge revamp looks really nice, so perhaps that, or the CG Bar will be our go to spot for a quiet drink before dinner. Also I'm wondering how we would access the Retreat pool from the Sun Deck, where we normally sit during sea days? Would you have to walk through a hallway of cabins to get to the pool? Doesn't seem to be any outdoor access to that pool.
  11. HAH! We never go in the hot tubs for that very reason.
  12. Pia, so nice to see you back on the Princess boards. I've always enjoyed your comments and input. I'm so sorry for your loss and hope you have a wonderful time on the ship. Ron
  13. Couldn’t agree more. My sentiments exactly. Our Europe trips have all been about the ports and excursions. When we get back on board, just want to relax, go for a quick swim, have a cocktail or two, a nice dinner and watch a show. Love the Regal!
