Actually, Princess policy is " not allowed on board without a lawful reason". So, you might be able to get a letter from Princess to allow you to take the drone with certain conditions.
Actually the recent addition of the "without a lawful reason" fudge language gives Princess more
latitude in refusing to return any item. Everyone called down to the Naughty Room has in their eyes a valid reason for bringing what the brought, but now the officer in charge can just arbitrarily retort "not a lawful reason" and chuck it back on the pile.
Just called Princess. The statement is that it's now allowed without a lawful reason. Account rep said that worst case scenario, they will hold it on a ship until end of cruise. Best case, I will be able to sign it out in port.
A worse scenario would be that if it was discovered before sailaway it would be held ashore at the embarkation port. Where the likelihood of it being lost or destroyed is pretty high.
Debarking is a cruel procedure done to dogs.
Upgrades, Upsellls and Move Over Offers are completely different things.
As are being denied boarding and being disembarked early.
And don't get me started on Port Charges vs. Government Taxes, Fees, and Port Expenses.
The Jones Act is for cargo. The PVSA is "that terrible law" that restricts USA domestic sailings. But without which there would likely be no cruise ships with casinos, duty free shops, and international crew members willing to work fantastically hard every single day.
Lots of people fly in the morning of the cruise and catch crazy early flights home. Why ask us if you can? Just to be harassed by the regulars?
No hotels have free shuttles, free breakfast, free wifi, or free parking. You pay in the rate. And could have found a better deal paying by the piece.
And don't forget: the cruise line is in complete control of the weather, political unrest, medical emergencies, and anything else that delays or re-routes your cruise. Be sure to demand compensation as it is you and only you who were affected.
