    Anytime dining doesn’t work!

    That may be a little extreme. How about just dropping them from TD. There table can then be reassigned.

    Milestone cruises

    We hit 750 days on our b2b2b to northern Europe in June & July. We got a number of special perks. We got flowers, chocolate covered strawberries, a bottle of the good champagne, tour of the bridge, and breakfast at Sabitini's for the leg we hit 750 days. That was on the first of the legs. Having the breakfast for 18 days was very nice. We were also recognized at the Captain's Circle party.

    Grand Princess wine packages?

    We like the packages. We go on mostly longer cruises. So we get the 12 bottle silver package. With that, we pay $20 (plus tip) for bottles costing up to $31.

    Internet options on Crown

    It is better to purchase the package on board, if you are getting the minutes for being Elite or Platinum. If you are not in these categories, you do better purchasing before boarding

    I can only speak for my wife and I. We notify the waiter and the head waiter the night before if we will not be at our table.

    Grand Princess wine packages?

    I haven't been on the Grand lately, but all the ships I have sailed offered the wine packages.

    Visa requirement rulls by cruise lines

    Sorry, but you would not be allowed to board.

    The times in the email are suggestions not mandates. However, there are times when boarding is delayed, so there is no guarantee of early boarding. In NYC a month or so ago, boarding for the Royal Princess was delayed to almost 2 pm for a full immigration and customs inspection of the ship.

    A .... Timely Question to Fall Back on....

    My experience is that Princess will stick to local time. So they will set the clocks back an hour at 2am on Nov 4

    It was a while ago, but when we were on the Grand, we called most mornings for a reservation and had no problems.

    Change in Traditional Dining Times?

    I think the discussion of switching to ATD deals with people who have TD but just show up at an ATD dining room. This will give them 2 tables for dinner - the TD cabin they are assigned for the cruise and the ATD table for that evening.

    I tell the hostess we are willing to share. Worked great.

    online check in

    Internet charges seem to be in flux. Ships offer different packages. Check with the internet manager on board. Most have had a 15 minute package for about US$8.
