They have replaced the robes with new ones that are a nice stretch type material and bigger. They still don't fit someone XL but are much nicer.

Robes

2 pats of butter

berries

2 entres' in the MDR at the same time

Pizza sucks

Towels in cabins

PBP instead of AIBP

No gelato n coffee card

Medallion fiasco rollout

Novo crisis on Crown



fell free to add the many threads the last couple of weeks


They call you on the chefs table and ask you if you want the wine, you say no and it’s suppose to be $15 cheaper, then they go ahead and charge the $15 and don’t take off.... also the ice cream ( really ice mile) sucks!

lol. Honestly, you got it! The secret plan. Oh, and don't forget - no more gelato on coffee cards. That's another ploy to get us to lose weight. I never knew you could buy gelatos with coffee card punches and was looking forward to finally doing it on my upcoming cruise. And what do you know? this was cancelled.

Over the past ten + years I have requested robes on the Cruise Personalizer many times and have NEVER had robes in the stateroom (other than the one time we were in a suite) UNTIL we sailed on the Grand last month. On Day 2 or Day 3 (can't remember which) we returned to our stateroom and there on the bed were two lovely, nice quality, thick terry cloth, generously sized robes. I was shocked! I am not sure why this happened but this was our first cruise as Elite and my thought was that perhaps the robes are an Elite perk (?) Anyway, it was a very pleasant surprise.

they are all being washed on turnaround day - we've made a request to our steward and usually had them sometime the next morning

Kidding....right!?! I'm 5'10" and 175 (that's verging on "overweight" according to BMI index). The robe is MORE than big enough! You get as many pats of butter as you want, the pizza is as mediocre as always, you get 2 (or more) entrees as often as you want, the stateroom towels are as good as most hotels, and so on. Princess is still a great experience!

We had lovely new plush robes on the Royal this past June. They were plenty large even though my granddaughter and I are both pretty small. Just hoping they'll replace the old waffle ones on the Regal before our Baltic cruise in June.

We had previously had a nice plush robe (I think it might have been on the Ruby). But what we had on the Regal (last week) were the older waffle robes (lightweight) made for stick figures. Somebody mentioned that they were Elite and go nice plush robes. We have been Elite for a very long time and were not so lucky. I am wondering (out loud) if there are only a limited number of plush robes and its luck of the draw. We did not think it was that big of a deal and never mentioned it to our steward (to try and get nicer robes). But it is one of those little things we save for CC .

In May this year on the Ruby one robe showed up in the cabin. This was after 9 previous requests with no robe. I had just left the request ride on my personalizer.

So, one day I tried it on and walked out to show the Wife. I was really concerned that she was going to hurt herself laughing. Then when she started to hunt for her phone (has a camera) I beat feet back to the closet area and got dressed.

It was one size fit very small and did not fit me.

Next cruise in Oct, no robe again.

'Hmmmmm "If it doesn't fit, you must quit?" Might be the basis of a new Princess marketing campaign.

I've never seen "Plush Robes" listed as an Elite perk. If it really was a perk, don't you think Princess would feature it?

Too many trips through the buffet line?. You must be overeating at the buffet?
Those robes are enormous.

Over 100 cruises. Then my dementia kicked in. Now I can't remember just how many cruises I've taken.
And God willing, may He grant you good health to live and not die before your next cruise.

Oceania has very small robes too. We aren't huge people, XL but these robes barely tied around.
You are XL?
And that is not considered being huge?
Just wondering, who would you consider as being huge? By weight? Or?
