    Where will ship be in port

    I want to know before hand if our ship is sailing out of one pier/terminal and back into another to determine the best place for us to park ... this is in PE/FLL ... also knowing that those things can change ...
  4. we tip in cash , both at the bar and for waiter service ... yes, in addition to the 15% auto grat ... we always take $50-100 in $1 bills for a 7 day cruise
  5. whichever bar ... I've found that a couple of $ goes a long way to getting faster service in a crowded bar , along with a stronger pour, or fuller glass of wine ... also, be polite, wait your turn, be ready to order, smile, please and thank-you also seems to help and is just plain good manners also ask for their name so you can put it on a comment card

    Dismbarkation Checklist

    our "issues" have mysteriously come up between the last night BEFORE embarkation and when the final bill is slipped under our cabin door during the middle of the night... we check our account on a mostly daily basis - and for sure every day the last 2-3 days of the cruise

    Rebates on Cruises from Travel Agents

    MCC retired ... since you opened the door.... what % of your commission earned from Princess did you keep for yourself and what % did you 'discount' to the customer? to keep it simple, use a commissionable fare of $ 5000 ...

    You Better Tip at Port Everglades - Or Else!

    would rather make Stewart, pool bartenders, Vines, Crooners 'happier' as we see/interact with them throughout the cruise - not a dash and go. will stick with the $ 5 for 2 bags

    You Better Tip at Port Everglades - Or Else!

    $ 5 for 2 bags is the right amount for us for the 2 minutes it takes them to take it out of the back of the suv and 'throw' it onto a cart...

    Buy 100 shares of Carnival Corporation stock ... this will get you OBC on each future cruise on Princess as well as the other cruise lines under the Carnival Umbrella ( Carnival Cruise Line, HAL, and others ) You can, if desired and allowed by plan, to purchase this stock in one of your retirement plans
