  1. We have been on all class ships except the Sun. We booked Island to do the Panama and expected to not like it. We really didn't find it that bad and were pleasantly surprised. I think the only thing we didn't like was that the theatre didn't have an exit down at the lower level. It took a long time to get out of the theatre. (I think this is the ship...) And we only notice because we are type A!
  2. Very funny. i really enjoyed reading your review. That transatlantic is on our list for when we retire. Norway we hope to do in the next couple of years.
  3. Any idea what the best beach is on Coco Cay? We like the calm water and some snorkelling.
  4. We are doing the California Coastal in Oct. Santa Barbara is a tender port and the only port we have never been to on our 10 day cruise. I sure hope we don't miss it!
  5. PS... We just came back from Napa... I'm sure you're bringing some pretty nice wine! worth paying the corkage!
  6. I don't think tax is an issue. But Princess only allows 1 bottle per person at checkin. You may be charged the corkage for the other bottles.
  7. Our very first cruise was on the Tahitian Princess in 2003, which is the same size ship. We had nothing to compare it to and loved cruising so much we are now 25 cruises in! We met a couple on that cruise that we are still friends with, that had already done 25 cruises and they said we started with the best! I don't remember a lot about the entertainment etc but we certainly had some memorable dining experiences with all the people we met. We would certainly go back and try the small ship experience again. It would be interesting to compare it to our big ship experiences, now that we are seasoned cruisers! Maybe a World Cruise some day????
  8. Ditto!!!! Except switch the Sangria for a bottle of Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc!
  9. We did this cruise from Quebec city to FLL. We really enjoyed it. Unfortunately we missed Charleston because of a bad storm and some of the roughest weather we have ever sailed in. We had never been to Saguenay before and I don't know if it's on your itinerary, but we never new Canada had a fjord! A real beautiful sail in/out. Almost everyone in the town came out to see the ship leave. Very welcoming. If you dock in Brooklyn, try and hit an Ample Hills Creamery. Some of the best ice cream we've ever had!
  10. Yes, we have done this cruise. It was excellent but unfortunately we missed Peter Port because of high winds. Do try and take the cruise during the Tattoo. It was well worth it. Make sure you do a tour that gets you up to the Antrim coast in Ireland. It was beautiful. We had a huge roll call on this trip (200) and we did many excursions with companies sourced off the ship. There are many highly reputable tour operators that can put together any schedule you would like in each port.
  11. I'm checking each day for 2019 California Coastals as well.... Hopefully soon!
  12. We just finished a cruise on Harmony of the Seas. We have done 6 cruises with them and 15 with Princess. We think the service in the dining room is better on Princess. We found the service on Harmony very rushed and disjointed, although we liked some of the unique options on the menu we don't see on Princess, like Salmon tartar, beef Short ribs. Although RCI has some of the huge productions shows, we actually feel that the 4 primary singers on the Princess ships have better voices and are more talented. The Bravo show on Princess is excellent. We LOVE the pizza at the pool and the choice at the International Café. We find it boils down to.... we sail RCI for the WOW ship and Princess for the Itinerary and that 'at home' feeling.
  13. I am hoping for California Coastals to come out for the Fall of 2019!
