  1. Currently on the Royal , Wines are in transition.
  2. You will have Donna as your steward and she is really good!
  3. L101/102 are the best value cabins on the Royal class ships! Enjoy your cruise!
  4. There is no actual restriction just in print. We do a lot of cruising on the Royal in M108/107, the last cruise being last month. Balcony dinner for M108/107 is best done in port just before sailing so as to have no wind issues. There are 3 scenarios when M108/107 balcony is really special. Coming in and out of port, in port and at sea with a tail wind so as to have no wind over the balcony.
  5. 2:00 / 2:30 arrival into Buenos Aires.
  6. Captain Draper left the ship on 26 January.
  7. Captain Nash made a PA saying because of an immigration problem the Royal will not be let into Buenos Aires until midday. Hotel people are working on it.
  8. Has anybody stayed at Bisonte Palace Hotel? Any comments. Thanks
  9. Not really. We cancelled a 24 Nov cruise "any reason" thinking I would have to use it on a future booking. The credit sat in the cruise credit account for a few days then was automatically applied to our Jan 19th cruise that was paid in full. Not knowing I could get a refund, calls were made and the amount was put back into the future cruise credit account. It sat there for a week or so and then mysteriously was applied to another of our paid in full crises in Feb. This time I talked to a supervisor and she volunteered the information that it can be refunded to your credit card.
  10. Maybe this is common knowledge but for some it may be news. If you have Princess Platinum insurance and you cancel for any reason you get the refund in future cruise credits with an expiration date. What I did not know is that if you have an upcoming cruise already paid in full, then you get the cruise credit for the cancelled cruise refunded to your credit card. Actually you have a choice between refund or leave it on your future cruise credit balance.
  11. Took for the team and had a Venchi chocolate martini, no charge.
  12. Boarded Seaside YC today 24Nov. Had a talk with the Director of YC. Upcharge for food in YC dinning room was only for the Thanksgiving cruise. No upcharge on this cruise. Going forward who knows. Old Deluxe package is honored including gelato and Venchi chocolate martinis. However have not tested that yet. Sorry didn’t ask about crepes. Future bookings will be Premium with the mini bar included for YC only. No gelato for YC on future booking with Premium. YC lost the zipline being included. It was never officially listed as being included but it was. So going forward on future YC bookings it is a loss of gelato and zipline.

  14. Thanks for posting. This was my guess that it would be a hybrid. They didn't want to tie the YC to a drink package so it gives them more flexibility. This could be a good or bad for us but I think it will be good.
  15. I had not heard they took it away from the YC. On our Seaside cruise last month (Oct.) it was included.
