    Coral Princess

    Having sailed on all the above mentioned ships numerous times, there is nothing that compares to the Royal Class ships! From the cabin layouts, the showers, the in-cabin wall-mounted large screen TV's, the on-demand TV programming, the dining options, the decor, the bar venues, should I continue? We like the Coral and will be sailing on her in a couple months, but PLEASE there is no comparision to the Royal Class Ships!

    Ruby Plaza Deck

    We frequently book cabins on Plaza deck. The doors to the Piazza are frequently closed at night, not always. We have never been bothered by noise from the Piazza or from above.

    Are Elite Perks Generous Enough?

    My biggest issue with the Captain Circle Program is that it is based on Sea Days and Cruise Credits. It should be based on Sea Days Only. It is not fair to reach Elite status by doing a bunch of short cruises. Just saying...

    Is SHARE being phased out?

    I believe Curtis Stone contract was for 5 years. I don't seeing it going away before then, but should not be expanded to any more ships. Sabatini's menu should be seeing a change soon, so I've heard...
  12. I totally agree that Princess should update their tier system. Too many cruises have TOO MANY Elites. On these overloaded cruises it has taken as long as 4 days for our laundry to be returned. I know you are listening Princess, PLEASE HELP!

    Most traveled luncheon

    It varies quite a bit depending on the passengers. With over 500 sea days, we rarely get invited on Los Angeles based cruises. On international based itineraries we make the cut about 50% of the time.
