LIVE From the Royal Princess: 4/6/2019

Recommended Posts

I did notice that the Retreat Bar is not listed in the Day 1 Embarkation Patters, do you remember or do you know if the Retreat bar was open on boarding day ?

It was. I grabbed a drink there!

 Called the Pub Lunch most ships have it once on 7 day sailings. On our recent Emerald sailing they had it twice on the 15 day cruise and the scotch egg was available yummy....

Have not seen that yet.

 We will have to try it together on our November cruise on Royal...

 It is one of the best dishes I have ever had on Princess....the creme sauce is to die for....

 

Curious, what a real foodie like Ms. Hermosia Beach says.....😉

 

Our Majestic cruise had few MDR or specialty restaurant selections I cared for so Alfredos..was the go too..and that dish was satisfying in my book.

Pretty small...maybe 4 pockets(ravioli size) and a 1/2 cup of sauce...but enough for me...

sweet...I can do that and a pizza on a day where I don't eat much breakfast or perhaps see that the MDR doesn't have much I am interested in. I will gorge on Alfredos!

Thanks! Yeh we were turned down for the Chefs Lumiere Dinner - we were  not “Royalty” enough to make the cut.🤣🤣 Happy with Wine Makers though!

I love the way you rate the food! 10 out of 10 forks, and 10 out of 10 YUMS! I'm going to start rating my food like this. 🙂

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do on every Royal-Class cruise which are only available on that class of ship.

 

While the Wine Cellar doesn’t have the CT Lumiere’s ring of lights we still enjoyed the location and the dining experience.

I would like to attend the Winemakers Dinner on my upcoming cruise in a few weeks, but was wondering if it is possible could you post tonights menu in the MDR for comparison?  And only if it's very convenient, I do not want to take away from your cruise!

NCL Haven courtyard balconies are similar. A little better but not by much. Aft suites deliver on balcony size but mom does not like to be aft. We are spending our time in the sanctuary anyway. We did not book the suite for the balcony. We booked for the amenities and room size. The room is really nice!

It is wonderful that you are happy with your Royal suite!  I agree...the room size and amenities (Sabatini’s for me!) are so worth it.  I must admit that aft suites on the older ships are my preference, for both the balcony size and the wake!  

May you continue to have a Bon Voyage! 😊

I've very curious about The Sanctuary and what it looks like.  Hoping to spending all my days there in October.  Is it nicer than the old Sanctuary?  The old Sanctuary was lovely; I'm hoping the new Sanctuary is even nicer!  It makes me happy!

That suite balcony is shocking...even sad for a mini-suite or balcony cabin!

 

Funny, I never feel sad when I stay  in a full suite.  😏

I would feel sad if I were at home and not on a cruise, however.

I videoed it and will post on YT when home. It’s nice.
