Elite in a full suite

We are not elite, but will be in a full suite.  We are not hard liquor drinkers - DH does not drink at all and I drink wine.  Can you ask for the hard stuff to be swapped out for wine?

Trade ENTIRE set.up for one bottle of wine

I just got off the Caribbean princess last week from a full suite. Comparing it to other cruise lines I find it minimal. On NCL you get full access to a concierge. On embarkation and debarkation the concierge escorts the suites on and off. On RCL there is also a concierge and a concierge lounge available all day and with complimentary alcoholic beverages during happy hour. RCL has reserved seating for shows including the ice show. RCL diamond plus and Pinnacle tier get a gift to choose from which includes a bottle of wine, lovely heavy canvas tote bag, a large beach towel and I forget all the other goodies I've accumulated. IMHO Princess lacks comparatively but I sail with Princess more because I like the overall experience and leaving out of Los Angeles ( I don't have to fly as much) but acknowledge they need to step up their suite experience. They recently discontinued giving suites a nice canvas tote bag (not the thin blue thing). They discontinued the personalized station with the suite and your name on it. The stopped putting postcards in the back of the information notebook. None of these are deal breakers but I've been watching the suite perks evaporate on Princess. 

 

On the Princess Royal class ships there is a concierge dedicated to suite passengers and a private concierge lounge that is only available to suite passengers.

Yes. One mini bar for a bottle of wine valued on the ship's menu for about $40.

That's on a very small number of ships . On RCL and NCL it's on all ships.  I still believe Princess lags behind other lines in their suite perks. On RCL you also get double cruise credits for their Jr. Suites which would correlate to Princess' mini's.

I enjoyed getting a minibar for each leg of my Alaskan cruises on the Island when I sailed solo. It does seem unfair that we get the same when we travel together--and even less fair for two of us on our current 16-day cruise. But so far, we have only touched the sodas and water. We may end up trading some of the liquor for more soda. I wonder what the longest possible cruise is on Princess that can't be booked as separate legs.

 

When we were in a suite, I called for the second minibar exchanged for coffee cards (now coffee packages). 

That’s genius - I didn’t even think to swap one set up out for a coffee card - thankyou!
