I agree. We have been sailing Princess in recent years. Chose this next cruise because our home port is also LA. Couldn't find a short cruise this time in January on Princess.

Scuba diving on a ships excursion in Belize. Too many people. Didn't care for the dive operation. A very inexperienced diver nearly killed my when she was not paying attention to her surroundings. We...

Looks like Celebrity, Princess, RCL, and NCL have a much better track record!
Inspiration Owner's Suite
We got an upsell call for the Inspiration Owner's Suite. They wanted an additional $1200 for a 4 day sailing. My husband and I have sailed in this suite in the past. We are currently booked in a...

Thank you! This is the information I needed. Exactly, I am doing paperwork, not trying to stream video.
WiFi on Inspiration
I have to do some work remotely when on my Inspiration cruise. Will I be able to login to a remote server with the premium Wifi package?

We are also trying YTD for the first time next month. We have always had late seating. Will we have to wait if we go around 8 - 8:30? We are sailing on the Inspiration.

We like everything about Princess better. This being said, we always book suites. Princess has much better suite amenities, plus you get double credit for the cruise. We made Platinum quickly on...

Fortunately, we are Platinum on Carnival, but one of the reason we have predominantly moved to Princess is you get more for your money when booking a suite. Yes, the suites cost more but you get what...

Has anyone had a problem getting a table for 2 with Your Time Dining on the Inspiration? We generally eat around 8.

Cozumel and Grand Cayman are awesome places to dive. Western is probably your best bet.

You need to sail with another line if you want real suite perks.

You pay for a suite but your room is not ready when you get priority boarding, yet someone who purchased FTTF can go directly to their suite. This is very wrong. Another reason suites are nothing...

You want something special for Platinum status or for booking a suite or both - do so on another cruise line like Princess. It is worth the extra money.

I do know it is the same company. Processes seem to be a bit less cumbersome with Princess. Plus we like the product better. Would rather pay more to get more.

Cancelled a cruise. They gave us a cruise credit which apparently cannot be automatically applied as it can on Princess. It takes 2-3 weeks to be applied according the person who assisted me from...
Carnival v Princess
Trying to have a cruise credit applied on Carnival is a major undertaking. Apparently, it takes 2 - 3 weeks. Princess is able to do it immediately. This, as well as the enhanced suite perks, make the...
