    Royal Princess -"good" choices in MDR?

    I am not familiar with some of the things on the new menus... so I wonder which choices might be good? We might do the Prime Rib and the Sea Bass on the first night. Would they bring an extra Prime Rib, upon request? Sea Bass is a good fish... How is this one prepared? What would be some of the highlights of the other nights??? Can't wait! PS: I don't think I am seeing Chateaubriand on Princess????

    New traditional dining times on Regal Princess?

    Debby, yes that is the official language on the web-site. But, each ship can adjust the schedule as they feel is best. It seems that they are moving the dining times up, as many think the late dining was just too late. But, then at 4:45 / 5:00. that was just too early for many. Especially on itineraries with long port days, and late sunset times.

    New traditional dining times on Regal Princess?

    I am not familiar with the Emerald dining rooms right now. But, if somebody posted the split / staggered dining times, I would think that one dining room does convert to ANYTIME after the Earliest seating. So, it can accommodate both types of dining. On the Regal, this dining room has times that are 15 minutes earlier than the ALL Traditional dining room.

    Ocean Ready - for Ocean Medallion

    Sounds like this may be fully implemented on the other ship, but not so much on the REGAL??? That might explain the different reports here.

    Pics of MDR Dinners - Royal Princess (Nov 17-24/18)

    Thanks! Appreciate the foodie pics. Wish I know what menu items some of them are! I hope the food seems as good on the Regal. Even that new 'little' lobster tail over risotto doesn't look too bad!!

    Ocean Ready - for Ocean Medallion

    Is it even necessary or helpful to go in and complete the Ocean Ready??? It seems to be a third party site, and we have not even tried. We will be sailing in an OM ready cabin, but I really don't know if we want to do Ocean Ready. I don't know if it would even be necessary or helpful. I don't think I see anything from/at Princess suggesting that we do this?

    Buying liquor for cabin consumption

    Anybody have info on pricing and taxes... Are the different when ordering a bottle of spirits to your cabin onboard. Versus pre-ordering.

    New traditional dining times on Regal Princess?

    The latest that I have heard is a split dining time. 5:15 Earliest (in the dining room that then has Traditional for the later seating) 5:30 Early in the Traditional dining room. And, I believe it was 7:30 and 7:45 for the late Traditional seatings.

    Nervous about Forward, upper deck, cabin?

    Okay, now add me to those who will be praying for calmer seas!!! And, I am thinking I am remembering the heavy weather at the time coming up the East Coast... : O

    Buying liquor for cabin consumption

    I have a more complex question... I would like to use up some OBC to buy a small bottle of spirits. And, you can't pay with OBC before you board. So, can I assume that this would be the same price onboard that it would be to pre-order. (Just found out that can't use OBC to save by pre-ordering the Medallion Net WIFI - so paid up front.) Also, if you pre-order, or order onboard, while in Port, then they will add taxes, right?

    Nervous about Forward, upper deck, cabin?

    Yes, Royal class. Regal Princess - Caribbean. Hope the larger newer ship will make a difference!
  12. We will be sailing in a Forward balcony cabin and a far-Forward inside cabin. I am nervous about motion, as I have not sailed Forward, or that high, before! Will we be fine, unless there are some pretty rough seas? In the Caribbean, we have experienced the rougher sailing on the first night, as the ship clears Florida and crosses the Gulf Stream. I am hoping it is not too bad this time!

    What address used for OBC refund check from Princess?

    I think that I have read that it goes to the person on whom's account the OBC was on. Once somebody buys OBC and it goes on another person's booking, it is like a 'gift' to that person, and is theirs... which would include any unused amount. Pam, don't they simply give the refund directly at Customer Service, if it is less than $25.00? I don't know!

    OBC to pre-purchase WIFI internet online?

    We do have additional OBC, and was hoping to be able to use as much OBC as possible! Looks like we can't use that to take advantage of the pre-purchase WIFI discount. Darn... Thanks all !

    OBC to pre-purchase WIFI internet online?

    Thanks, I hope so... Do we have to call and do this. by phone, to use OBC to buy the internet package before we sail?
