  1. Since we are over 70 and not in perfect health it looks as though we won't have cruising as an option. But if I could, if would go in a heartbeat.
  2. I am new to Norwegian. We have a small amount of non refundable obc. Can this be applied to the daily service charge? On Princess gratuities can be paid for using obc. If I cannot apply it to the daily service charge i will be sure to spend it.
  3. We just returned from the Regal. The theater is very cold. We actually wore jackets to the theater.
  4. We were on the Regal Princess last week. The main dining room head waiter was wonderful. Every night he showed us the menu for the following day and told my husband which meals could be modified to be dairy free. They provided him with margarine every night because he cannot tolerate butter. His only complaint was no dairy free desserts in the buffet. Each day he asked and each day was promised there would be something the next day but it did not happen.
  5. We just got off the Regal Princess. We did a 7 day Eastern Caribbean with stops at Princess Cay, St Thomas and St Martin. This was not our first Princess cruise but our first on a Royal class ship. First let me say I thought the ship was beautiful. As we have come to expect the service was excellent. We had a couple of issues that were important to us. My biggest issue was babies in diapers. I did speak to a pool attendant who told me swim diapers were allowed. This is not what was stated in the sign by the pool. It is of great concern to me that the Princess Corporation ignores the law when it comes to this issue. My husband needs to be dairy free and although there was plenty to eat there were no dairy free desserts on the buffet. He asked every day and was told there would be something tomorrow but the only day there was something he could eat was the last day when they had apple pie. We love to dance. Most dancing took place in the atrium. This is a tile floor and is hard to dance on tile. There were venues with beautiful wood floors that were not used. Surprisingly there were many dancers on the cruise who would have enjoyed dancing on a wood floor. For those people concerned about bar soap, it was provided. I did not need to ask for it. Overall the cruise was fun but I think we will stay away from the Royal Class and go on older ships where the floors are better for dancing.
  6. Thanks Princess Sweet Pea, I do have the medallion app but did not know about the schedule. Swiped left on my phone and there it was. Thanks see you soon. Look for Lenny and Jan on the dance floor. The old fashioned dancers😊 (actually really old dancers)
  7. Thanks for the review. We board one week from today, same ports, and have never been on the Regal. Was there any dancing for older folks, swing, cha-cha, rumba? So glad I read your review. Now I am really excited.😊
  8. What is the Bavarian Dinner? Is there a cost? Does anyone know if there will be dancing in any of the venues? We will be on in a couple of weeks.
  9. If I had paid $40 a day to be in the Sanctuary l would have been very upset to have a screaming child in the adult pool. I'm usually not very assertive but I think I would have said something to the attendant .
  10. Yes there is a free band offered or you can purchase specialty bands with Disney Characters on them.
  11. Does anyone know the times for the breakfast seatings on the last day? We are on the Dream.
  12. We are sailng in early December and had an offer about 2 weeks ago, about 8 weeks before our sail date. It asked for an email response. We booked through a Princess Vacation planner and this is our 6th Princess cruise.
  13. Thanks for letting us know about this promotion. I was able to get the dining added to two cruises i had booked under 3 for free. it only took my TA about 10 minutes to refare. We've never done Specialty Dining. We are in our 70's and don't really eat enough to justify the additional cost. So this will be a real treat. This forum is a great source of information.
  14. Thank all of you for the information on dining. I did not realize you need reservations for the shows as well. I will have the other couple, who do all reservations, to look into that. I did not realize how different the cruise lines are as far as policies go. Your answers are very helpful.
  15. Hi Cruisers, We are sailing NCL for the first time with friends having mostly sailed with Princess. As part of the booking promotion we received a 3 meal dinning package. I am having trouble on the NCL website finding information on how this works. Do we order off the regular menu? I noticed the Italian is a la carte. Can we order more than one course or does the promotion only cover entrée? Our friends have made the reservations already so I am really looking for information on the menu and what the additional cost might be. We have already paid the gratuities with our booking. He has booked the Italian, steakhouse and Japanese restaurant and we are on the Breakaway. Any insight would be much appreciated.
