  1. Thanks for the feedback. Obstructed are nearly as expensive as the balcony sat $135 difference. Maybe go inside and cross fingers for upsell or upgrade. The DW prefers the light and balcony. Since our first inside years ago we always get balconies but this time......
  2. Having to attend a wedding in Seattle on 7/27 the day the Ruby returns to Seattle we seem to be locked in the 7/20 Ruby (perhaps the most expensive week to cruise in Alaska.) First time to Alaska for DW and I and debating inside or balcony and saving $1500 by going inside. What's the consensus do you save and spend time on deck and on excursions or spring for the balcony? Just found out the wedding venue is north of Seattle so will also look into another departure port/date. Looking for feedback from experienced Alaska travelers. Thanks
  3. We're months away from a November back to back and have not yet experienced the medallions on earlier cruises. Question do we receive and use the same medallions for both legs of the b/b?
  4. There's a Princess magazine that comes out maybe quarterly that lists the books for upcoming months. My wife always does it. Watch the Patter for the Book Club get together where they hand out the book. Late in the cruise is the sit down reviewing the book.
  5. The Regal initially out of NYC to FLL then the back half R/T FLL. The second half is where we have the promotion. It's just DW and I (I am a dinosaur) so can we both be on the internet at the same time on separate devices? Thanks
  6. Through my TA we have a B/B next November 2019. The back half includes MEDALLIONNET 4-DEVICE PROMOTION. Can someone tell me please what is it? Thanks
  7. Can't comment on MDR as we don't go there. From 11/1/18 we spent 17 days in the Sanctuary on the Regal and the service could not have been better. Zaza from Macedonia got our loungers arranged as needed and the staff was attentive at all times. Whether it was a drink from the bar, a lunch or ice water or iced towels they were always available and pleasant. In fact Diana one of the crew had the best smile on the ship.
  8. Having spent full cruises in the Sanctuary we've tipped extra to the two or three or more sanctuary folk who have gone out of their way for us or just knew when I needed more ice or another ice cold towel. Irina on the Regal was the best head of the Sanctuary ever (understand she's on the Star now) and couldn't do enough for us.
  9. You can't beat the buffet on the Royal and Regal. From the size and layout you have to reconnoiter all the aisles before you choose your foods. In the morning in the back row they have two omelette stations. Their salad bar items are varied and excellent. Plenty of nuts, cheese and breads to choose. They have a pasta station each night. Won't leave hungry.
  10. Just got off 17 day b/b 11/1 and 11/11. The 11/1 was free unlimited internet for platinum and elite. I thought it worked pretty well with an occasional hiccup, the speed was fast. Early on my wife tried to log on and a message said she had used all her time. I went downstairs to the internet cafe and then set her up pronto. For the 11/11 I thought we would each get only 250 minutes but we had 500 as they gave us 250 unused from 11/1 and the 250 for the 11/11 cruise. There were a couple of hiccups again in the 11/11 cruise that were speedily fixed downstairs. Those guys were saints dealing with a bunch of dinosaurs like myself.
  11. If you're on the Royal or Regal there's a shaded gazebo up front for use by all Sanctuary passengers regardless the location of their lounger.
  12. Can only book on board. Once on board hustle up to the sanctuary and you'll be shown around and can select your lounger based on availability. $40 a day/$20 half day though $30 a day if booking daily entire cruise.
