    MSC Seaside Bar Menus

    A since there is one asterisk this means that as part of the yacht club it would be included?

    Any Scans or Pictures of Dailies, MDR Menus, or YC Menus?

    Thanks for posting the yacht club menus!
  3. I tried to search the forums but couldn't find the answer, so I thought I would ask. My mother in law just mentioned that she had heard you can NO longer bring your own soda on board to consume during your cruise. We always bring a case in our extra bag that we use for souvenirs on the way home. We have cruised more recently than she has, so I am not sure where she is getting her info about this. We head off in a couple months to Hawaii and would like to be sure. Thanks for your help

    Upsell would you?

    Yes, Jacuzzi tubs and a separate standing square glass enclosed shower! Plus the use of the Thermal Suite in the Spa, Breakfast to order in Sabatini's, free laundry service, and what we used most of all: ordering off the regular dining room menus for room service! We did the Med. cruise 12 day (Rome to Venice) and loved coming back to the ship and having room service deliver our dinner to our balcony! You WILL get spoiled, sorry to say. Congratulations!

    Currency

    For Thailand we ordered Thai baht from Bank of America before our cruise last march. Vietnam currency was not offered and come to find out US currency was the way to go. It was some crazy exchange like 20,000 dong to one US dollar so that's a lot of change to carry and make. We took US small denominations so we could get correct change back or pay the exact amount for souvenirs. For example if something was $2, we had singles to pay with. We did not travel to Bali, so cannot advise.

    Onboard Gratuity Fees????

    There is also an automatic gratuity for spa services which started sometime in the past year. That fee is 15%. There is also a 15% fee for beverages like soft drinks.

    Menu for speciality restaurant

    There is a thread called food food and more food, and it is listed in there. I am on my iPad so I cannot link it for you.

    Lotus Spa?

    It is much more expensive then going at home. I have however won gift certificates to the spa from ship raffles and did enjoy a hot stone massage.

    [quote name='IECalCruiser']You can't book specialty restaurants in advance. Once on board you can call the dine line, DINE, on you cabin phone. There will also be a "$1,000 Treasure Hunt" on embarkation day. You need to collect 8 stamps on a card for a drawing for prizes. One of the stamps is at Sabatini's. While you are there you can make reservations for both Sabatini's and the Crown Grill and the Ultimate Balcony Dinner if you wish. They might have copies of the dining room menus for your cruise. They should have the schedule for formal nights. The formal night schedule will also be on page 2 of your embarkation day Patter.[/QUOTE] I forgot about the treasure hunt. We usually go to the spa open house. They have a drawing for various spa services. Winner must be present. We have entered a few times and won only because the drawing is generally at a time people are at early seating for dinner. We have won a hot stone massage on one cruise and a $100 gift certificate on another. Send from device_name using Cruise Critic your_app_name App

    Battery Grip Alaska Cruise

    I have a Nikon and did a 16 day orient cruise last year. I brought my 18-200 with me as well as my battery grip. It was nice not to worry about charging batteries. Send from device_name using Cruise Critic your_app_name App

    Time zone changes on Baltic cruise?

    That is a great cruise, but very exhausting due to all the time changes. Enjoy your trip. Send from device_name using Cruise Critic your_app_name App

    Princess Secrets they Don't Tell You - 2013 version

    [quote name='paul929207']Yes, the book club will meet early in the cruise on a sea day. At that time, the book will be distributed. Then there will be a meeting to talk about the book towards the end of the cruise. Both meeting will be announced in the Princess Patter.[/QUOTE] On my cruise, they just had the book at the library and you picked it up. Send from device_name using Cruise Critic your_app_name App
