  1. What a disappointment! It would be interesting to compare the new Harmony menu to the old, if a passenger posts a pix of the menu.
  2. The Chopsticks Noodle Bar used to offer two or three types, rotating days. Dan Dan noodles tend to be pretty spicy, in case you're sensitive to heat, but on the ship they're probably pretty tame. Also, if they haven't taken it away, is the Gong Cha Cafe for Boba drinks. I think there is a charge for them but if you haven't tried bubble tea it is refreshing. Thank you for your posts!
  3. Sixty inches wide is a standard queen in N. America and Australia. Europe and Latin America have a different standard. I would have thought the ships beds would be Euro sized.
  4. The old post you mention might be the old bed measurements too. Not on board a ship, but here is Customer Service for Princess Luxury Bed. (702) 479-4045 retail@princessluxurybed.com
  5. Sure! But you can make a Tom Collins at home easily. Cruising is the time let the bartenders earn their keep and taste some flavors you might not keep at home. Since you like gin, as I also do, try a Negroni for something dark and complex.
  6. Human nature to want to make the most of something we've paid for. I usually eat more and gain weight on a cruise, since food figures in the cruise fare. Add alcohol and internet paid for up front and that's another recipe for over consumption. Are bundled packages worth it? Each person has to weigh that.

  8. Your question is not stupid. Look at the number of threads and posts on the subject of Ocean Ready and you will see you are far from alone. I had a problem, a different problem, but like you, I too am not smartphone savvy here either. Their help line number is 1-844-525-0942. After explaining my concern, they told me to have my (adult) child do it. This is the level of help you should expect from them. Since then, supposedly, they have changed their tune and more can be done at the port at boarding time The bottom line is, you are the customer. They need to come through f
  9. Thanks! Will drive by it someday as there is a restaurant nearby that we like. Anything interesting left of Casa Sirena, will figure a way to send you photos. I looked at IMDB and no listings for location work. Tip for anyone visiting, the US Navy Seabee museum is nearby. Totally worth the price of admission, free.
  10. This caught my eye. There are port fees and taxes, as with any cruise. But does mean they tax the Medallion itself and charge a fee for mailing it? Did you buy wrist straps and such that are taxable? What are the fees mentioned?
  11. @Daniel A you are entitled to your opinion, but many here have a different interpretion of the word, "Friend."
  12. What Rick&Jeannie said. And if the door closing doesn't wake you, I can assure you the alarm in your cabin will!
  13. Great info, John99. Thanks! Where do you find the dry dock worklist for the ships?
  14. WDITOT! On the face of it, sounds like a great solution.
  15. I did not intend to go into detail, but just to point out that there is a wide disconnect between what Princess has offered in the past and what they seem to want to attract in customers going forward. Regarding the Art Auctions. Once saw the Goya etching, "Ya van desplumados," (There they go plucked) at a Princess auction. I laughed as it seemed to fit the moment. That said, If someone has buyer's remorse on one of Goya's Los Caprichos I'd be interested.
