  1. I thought it was fun and funny, too, about the hangers rattling:)
  2. Thanks so much for your good report! I appreciate it.
  3. Are you speaking of the couple known as "Elua", or one of the others? They are all good, but I believe that Elua has been around the longest. I am hoping to have the Hawaii Ambassadors on my next Hawaii cruise, this fall. Thanks for posting about the Hawaii Ambassadors.
  4. In case my mention of movies sounds kind of dumb, please consider that movies in the Princess Theater are a great experience. Great screen, fabulous sound! I love the movies in the Princess Theater!
  5. I have been on 8 Princess Hawaii cruises, all RT from California. They have all been great! On sea days, they always have lots of activities. Shows, talks, movies, and musical performances in various locales. Not to mention eating! No way to be bored! Enjoy Hawaii! Aloha!
  6. Yes! Thanks! Newcastle is the dark draft beer at the outside bars, that I had in mind. Thanks again!
  7. I would like more beers to choose from, also. On my recent cruises, before COVID, I was always pleased that the outdoor bars had Heineken available on tap. They also regularly had a dark draft beer, but I can't remember the name of it. (I admit I am getting old!)
  8. I'm going! Round trip to Hawaii! In November! Let's go! Aloha!
  9. I am an active walker, stair-climber, and regular exercise person. Yet I have always found the Princess mini suite tubs to be high and difficult. Just sayin' I often have a Princess mini suite, on many dfferent Princess ships, including Golden, Grand, Star, Diamond, Sapphire, Emerald and Ruby.
  10. Wow, yes! It works that way for me here, too, in Chicago. I use an iPad.
  11. Thanks, all, for the good information. I was quite despondent, earlier, when I could not get in. I am felling better, now. Thanks so much!
  12. Whale watching, on a summer evening, in Victoria, is a joy! I have done it several times on Princess whale watching tours. There is daylight very late, in June and July. It is light out on the water, even later. Go for it! What a trip!
  13. Thanks so much! I'm goin' !! :)
  14. At the Harmony restaurant, can you order wine from the regular wine list? I would like to have red bordeaux with my duck dishes
  15. That is great news! So glad they opened up this stairway on the Royal and the Regal. This shows that positive things can happen, with the right amount of interest. Thanks for the response.
  16. So, is it only on the Royal and Regal where this stairway is closed to the passengers? Or are there other ships, too? Thanks so much for this posting and the replies!
  17. I applaud the Alaska Senators for taking this action. Considering the fact that they represent Alaska towns that are directly impacted by the lack of cruises, it is good that they tried to do something. At least they made the effort. I have been on 14 Alaska cruises, and two of mine for 2021 have been cancelled, by Princess. (These were cruises to/from Vancouver, with stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Whittier.) I appreciate the Alaska Senators.
  18. OK, so howsa 'bout the enjoyment of cruise ship passengers? I realize this will not influence Congress, and from what everyone says, the bill is stuck in committee. But here on Cruise Critic, shouldn't the enjoyment of "us" cruise ship passengers have something to do with it? I know that enjoyment of cruising is my main interest here.
  19. I thoroughly enjoyed the visit to Volcano Winery. The wine tasting was fantastic! The lunch was also good. I said "Mahalo" and "Aloha" to staff there, when arriving, being served, and when (sadly) leaving. It is hard to beat the waterfalls on the Big Island. Enjoy!
  20. Thanks for your good thought! I am looking forward to trying it.
  21. Thanks, all, for the great comments, interesting thoughts, and wonderful pics. Do you think that the Platinum Studio will still be there when cruising resumes? I have cruises scheduled on Ruby and Grand, but not until November and then the following March. The quality of the pictures looks great, but the price... yikes! I guess it is a case of paying appropriately for quality. I understand. It is just that the first glimpse of the price was a shock. I am not familiar with shoreside studio photography prices. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
  22. OhI I just saw your comment about the booths... thanks again, so much!
  23. So, on a non-formal night, and with a generous, pre-dinner tip to the dining room captain, would two of us be able to be seated at one of these banquets? Thanks in advance for yoiur thoughts.
  24. I would like to eat at Share, again, on an upcoming scheduled Ruby cruise. I ate at Share when it was brand new. At that time, the chairs were very uncomfortable.. Hard wooden chairs, no padding, with an uncomfortable design. Has the seating improved, at all, at Share on the Ruby? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
