  1. We used Ephesus Shuttle also and really enjoyed them. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to go.
  2. The Coral doesn't have any bedside. Maybe behind the bed down by the floor.
  3. Personally I never have nor ever will attend a karaoke session. As has been noted in several previous replies it is generally not well attended on many Princess cruises. Yours appears to have been one that was. Most passengers book a cruise for the experience of seeing places that they would not get to otherwise. Many others cruise just for the shipboard experience nad I think it has been shown that they do not typically attend karaoke sessions. You might want to consider a different cruise line if karaoke is that important to you. Not downgrading your desires nor being snide about this but just stating reality.
  4. We just returned from doing the Norwegian Fjords on Princess. We stopped at Stavanger, Olden, Geiranger, and Bergen. Princess only does this a few times each year. It was an amazing cruise.
  5. Typically when you will be at sea on the itinerary it will be on the cooler side outside on the ship's decks. But you never know for sure.
  6. Princess will ask you if you want to have the booking with your current TA. If the FCC doesn't ask, be sure to tell him/her. Or you can specify a new one if you like. A very easy process.
  7. Can't find anything on the Princess web site. Do you have a link to the cruises this apples to?
  8. Another note is then the cruise price, at least on Princess, is much more expensive when embarking in LeHarve than in Southampton.
  9. So to answer your questions - I've seen the wedding chapel both open and closed when not in use. Really depends on the ship and the personnel making the decision. There are no assigned clergy on board. But there may be a passenger who is a clergy member you might conduct non-denominational services. As far as the wine goes - yes you can each bring on one bottle of wine at no charge. But if you take it to the dining room they will charge you $15 corkage. If you have more then 1 bottle each they will charge you $15 corkage for each one no matter where you consume it. It is best to have in your carry-on rather than your checked luggage. When they see it at the security check-in they will direct you to a table where Princess folks will take care of charging you the corkage fee.
  10. And the best part is that the ship docks just a couple of short blocks from the old town.
  11. On my 2 upcoming cruises next month I have a number of different on-board credits. They consist of: Princess promotional credit as part of the booking TA supplied credit Shareholder credit Loyalty credit Future cruise deposit credit Which ones are refundable if not used and which ones are non-refundable? Thank you in advance.
  12. Everyone has an opinion of a ship. If you go with a positive attitude you will have a fantastic time, particularly in Alaska. If you go with an attitude that something will go wrong, then it will and even if it's a minor thing your mind will blow it out of proportion. If you want to look for things that are wrong or need repair you will find them. Or as I originally noted you can have that positive attitude and ignore the little things. No matter what you do, have a great cruise. And personally the Coral would be my first choice for Alaska due to the abundance of passenger space and the wide open decks for viewing the spectacular scenery.
  13. On a cruise next month we have more on-board credit than we will use. Can I get my nails done at the spa/beauty salon and have it charged to my on-board account? Anyone know the approximate cost for getting nails done? Thank you in advance. Christine
  14. Yes you should be able to get off the ship after boarding.
  15. Hi Cheryl. We're also doing the 10:00 tour at the castle. So maybe we can hook up with your group and share 2 taxis. Tom
