  1. And what if you are both elite and both trade your free minutes for a single 4 device package? Is there any additional discount? PS: I think I know the answer to this one......
  2. I should have included the ship info. We’ll be sailing on the Coral and yes it’ll have Medallion Net per our personalizer.
  3. I’m sorry but don’t know what this answer means. I’m correct about what? I was asking a question about the best rate for Medallion Net.
  4. For the last several Princess voyages we found the best rate for an internet package that fit our needs was the one offered onboard when first setting up our internet account. That offer has always had a better per minute rate than those offered precruise. Is this still the case with Medallion Net or is it now cheaper to buy precuise. We have a 16 day South America/ Antarctica voyage booked for January and I see we have two options precruise in our crisis personalizer including a daily package offer of $14.99 per day for up to 4 devices and a single user package for the entire voyage at $129.99. Will elite passengers be credited somehow for the free minutes we get each voyage if we purchase a package? Thanks, Chris
  5. Ours were next door to one another and the move seemed simple enough. We never thought it’d be an issue.
  6. We did once and will never do it again. It caused several problems even though passenger services said it was easy to handle. Credit cards on our cruise personalizer was not changed to match new cabin numbers. Future cruise deposits purchased onboard were given to the wrong passengers and wasn’t recognized until weeks later when we were trying to track down why ours weren’t showing up on our captains circle accounts. We had to have releases signed by family members and faxed in before they would correct. Cabin keys (cards) weren’t changed correctly until second attempt. There were others but I can’t remembwr what they were. It’s been 3 years since we did it.
  7. It will depend on the rules for the booking you made. By that I mean if you booked a cruise that was part of a sale and that sales fine print included a nonrefundable deposit, then I expect you will loose the FCD. Otherwise you should get it back in your account where it can be used again later. I suppose if it’s beyond the two year ‘life’ of a FCD it will be refunded directly to you unless you request and they approve an extension on the 2 years.
  8. Good info. Thanks for the help. Look so like they’d fly in the day before and use a hotel close to SEA before catching the transfer the morning of boarding. Assuming Princess offers the transfer when they decide on the dates.
  9. I haven’t yet but will do so once they settle on a date (voyage) or two that works best for them. Yes, I see the quick shuttle company offers one for just $59 each but was trying to explore the Princess one a bit to keep it as simple as possible for them. I wanted to determine if they still offered them and what the cost might be.
  10. I would assume the same thing. Would of course need to verify if they decide this option works for them and settle on a date. I’m trying to help them explore their options. Thanks
  11. I’m trying to help a family member out together a trip for their family that will include a 7 day voyage from Vancouver to Whittier. I seem to remember Princess offered a Seattle to Vancouver ship transfer the day of the cruise departure. Without booking the cruise I can’t tell if it’s still offered or what the cost would be. Has anyone done this or know more info? thanks
  12. I have a photo on the Royal that is so cool to see hanging on deck 15 when we sail on her. It was entered in a similar contest when she was being constructed. I didn’t hear about the Sky contest in time to submit one though.
  13. We did it on the Emerald several years ago and really enjoyed it. Some of the things we enjoyed most was the ships bridge and seeing how the ship is steered/controled, main engine control room, Princess theater back stage operations and kitchen area. My advise is to take the tour
  14. I’ve done it in a variety of ways. At first I gave them to the passenger services desk after boarding and did sign them with a note indicating they were donated to the ships library and asking readers to please return them to the library after reading them. After doing it this way a few times I was asked by the P.S. staff to simply place them on the shelves myself. Eventually I simply began taken them directly to the library. I stopped signing these copies some time ago but still usually put the note in them asking that they be returned after reading. Occasionally someone onboard will stop me after recognizing me from the ‘about the author’ page photo and tell me how much they’re enjoying reading it. On a couple voyages a group of readers put together a book review or informal discussion for it while onboard which I attended. In any case it’s fun hearing from those who read it and knowing it gives several hours of enjoyment.
