  1. I've done it as well. Called Princess customer service and explained that I only want to do the deposit and voila no problem. Charges reversed.
  2. What I found interesting on one of their Medallion Mondays on YouTube was that they said if there was something you wanted or needed an employee would be happy to assist you. So, lets say you want a cocktail and don't want to use your phone or one of the many big interactive screens to order it, you can ask an employee to do that for you. Hmmm... We are not cruising again until next Spring so I will continue to read the comments here as time goes on and people are actually on board and their experiences.
  3. In this instance I can see why it would not be logical to do it this way. If I remember correctly, when a passenger travel solo their fare is doubled?
  4. As far as the specialty coffee card (added to your medallion) the issue for me is having to count how many I have left or asking how many do I have left? This I have done and I do not want to leave money on the table (so to speak) and buy and extra card only to use 1/2 of it. It does not carry over to the next cruise like the old coffee cards. Its one and done.
  5. I am so glad they had this option of the Plus fare. Seems logical to prepay in the fare and have a more relaxing cruise. I do not have to worry so much about how much each soda, specialty coffee, glass of wine(or 2), margarita is going to cost. I figured it out that my daily drinks (alcoholic and nonalcoholic) came to about $40 a day. We would get the coffee card and would have to figure out how many a day we could use without using them all up before the cruise was over (we take longer cruises). We use to always get cases of bottled water and now we do no
  6. I personally like the Plus package ($40 daily chg). I drink specialty coffees (3-4 a day), sometimes an afternoon cocktail by the pool, bottled water or soda, an evening cocktail before dinner and a glass or 2 of wine with dinner. That alone is about $30 - 40 a day. Even if I did not have cocktails and just coffee, water and sodas that would be about $20 in beverages. Gratuities and wifi included would be about $25 a day. I like playing certain games online because it relaxes me. So I like the unlimited internet so I don't have to pay extra. So not having the 250 free minutes as a pl
  7. This might become a possibility. They create tags at the airport when checking luggage so I do not see why not at the port? It is a possibility.
  8. Oh my! What a poor response about luggage tags. Someone needs to listen before speaking. Luggage tags = paper print out to attach to luggage.
  9. We love the longer cruises. We find that doing nothing is just as good as doing something on this cruise to Hawaii. We have done this cruise twice and plan on it again next April on the Grand. You will enjoy it as everyone is so happy and relaxed.
  10. You have the option of either charging it to your cabin or putting in cash. I personally take cash and if I run out and want to play a bit more I charge it to the room. Then later, I will take the cash I have brought with me and pay the charged amount because I really do not like having a balance on our account. It is so easy to spend it in the casino when all you have to do is push the right buttons and its charged to your account. Be careful!
  11. I do put comments on their YouTube and Facebook page. I think they are listening but they are being so politically correct the answers are soft.
  12. I am one of those that does not do to well with changes. This is a change that we all have to find our way through and Princess needs to do more videos and dummy them down to help those who feel lost. My old boss had me read a book called: Who moved my cheese? It is an excellent explanation on how we deal with changes with our different personalities. I think that this is how a lot of us feel even though Princess for the last 2+ years has told us this was coming. Chees has been moved again and we must find our way together 🙂
  13. I have been watching these "info" videos about the Medallion. Last one was a fluff show. BTW, first subject out ~ you do not have to have your phones or tablets with you to navigate Medallion. You can use the big screens OR (I laughed at this one) get an employee to assist you if you want to lets say order something from the store onboard. Sigh. I am just wondering how many extra crew they have to have in order to fulfill their promises? Or are the crew going to be doing so much extra "stuff" to help the customers? I do hope this works out but I doubt it.
  14. That is what I was thinking when I heard that.
  15. I have been watching the videos and they make it look too easy. For all of us who have not done a medallion cruise this will be a learning lesson. Its nice the show the comforts of this but I am one of those who says "I will believe it when I see it". I downloaded the app onto my phone and it has listed a cruise that was cancelled a long time ago. If that is any example of how well this programming is going to work, I am not impressed yet.
