  1. Even when a cruise line allows a bed configuration request, I’ve always had to ask the steward the first day to separate them. I don’t think special requests filter down to the stewards. Everything is always the way we want it when we come back from dinner.
  2. My friends did book, but they were already talking to a TA. The husband was a little reluctant so the TA mentioned the chance to experience a little of the ship and the result was enthusiasm on his part and relief on his wife's. They’re still cruising on Princess.
  3. They used to be standard. That way you could eat a couple and then a sunflower seed roll.
  4. I get double meat and horseradish sauce and sit on the balcony and am in heaven.
  5. Earplugs would help you get a good night’s sleep. I’d also call just in case there’s a quieter option.
  6. And I’d love to know why. South Florida people I know took advantage of it and enjoyed everything except having to disembark. Since the hope was future bookings, maybe that didn’t happen often enough.
  7. That happened to me. I started wanting to put them in my purse to toss later. I love the regular rolls, too, and couldn’t do both.
  8. Go back and read the posts and you will see the menu.
  9. Southampton White Taxis was great for us. I began dealing with Dave’s partner, Lance Bradley but sadly he became very ill and Dave had to handle everything. Both men were super efficient and friendly at the same time. Our vehicle was a large and luxurious van, and Dave is a calm, excellent driver. I would recommend the company to anyone.
  10. Thank you for keeping us in cruise mode with your review. By the time March rolls around I’ll have done multiple cruises with all of you lovely posters!
  11. We don’t have streaming at home. I was hoping that by buying surf and stream on Harmony I could see some of the actors that now appear on streaming shows so I never see them any more. At the same time, I was pretty sure I’d have to subscribe at home to be able to see them on the ship, as one poster said. Thanks for the clarification, and I’ll just stick to playing on my iPhone with my usual round of CC, Facebook, news and emails.
  12. We have cable but no streaming. If we purchase surf and streaming on Harmony, will we be able to take advantage of the streaming? or, as I assume, will we have to have a password to connect to whatever? i am totally clueless and am lucky to be able to use the remote to watch Jeopardy!
  13. Someone posted that the carryon luggage was left unattended. I wonder if this is usual. I keep my CPAP with me, and my meds, but it would be wonderful if there was a guaranteed dependable way not to have to drag it around with me till our stateroom is ready. Evidently the Key isn’t the answer.
  14. I agree! I owe a lot to the poster who gave us the heads up. I’d have really been upset if I’d found out too late to switch back to traditional.
  15. Our cruise is March 2020. I’m hoping that the powers that be will see the folly of what they’ve done with the dining rooms and go back to just using one for MTD. Of course, by then, it will be too late to switch again!
  16. I originally booked early traditional, but hated the idea of 5pm. Switched to MTD, but then found out Harmony uses all three dining rooms for early traditional so that MTD starts a 6:30. So I switched again, back to early traditional. I’ve read more than once that we need to be there by 5:15 at the latest, so that’s what we’ll do. I can’t believe they’ve made dinner times so awkward!
  17. Lots of adults go by things like third driveway from the fire hydrant. It has nothing to do with memorizing numbers and everything to do with remembering landmarks.
  18. Great review. I’ve never been interested in MSC, but you’ve got me intrigued since your DH prefers it. We alternate Princess and Royal. Maybe we can learn to juggle three cruise lines!
  19. Your reviews are the only thing between me and cruise withdrawal syndrome. Medically necessary, so don’t stop!!
  20. It was our DD, her DH and 8 of their posse, and they all had a blast. Poor Lisa wound up with a sore throat and missed a catamaran/snorkeling excursion. Slept the day away! The bad throat didn’t stop her from eating and drinking otherwise, though. They and their friends do girls trips to NYC, etc, and took their husbands to Nashville last year. Thank goodness they travel well together. I’ve seen people cruise with their best friends and come home frenemies!
  21. In Florida we have wineries that produce their wine from scuppernong grapes. On the sweet side.
