Live From the Sky Princess B2B January 25 - February 8, 2020

Recommended Posts

An early good evening from the Sky Princess.  We departed Grand Cayman about an hour ago.  Holli was under the weather so she stayed in the cabin.  I took the tender into town and just walked around town for a bit and took some pictures.  Prior to heading back to the ship, I stopped off at Margaritaville and indulged in what they have to offer.  Since Holli isn't feeling well, we may indulge in the suite perk of ordering from the MDR menu fo dinner ensuite.  Other than that, not much else planned.  

 

Tomorrow we will be in Roatan Honduras.  We have a sail/snorkel excursion planned that I am looking forward to.  

 

Tonight's entertainment in the Princess Theater is Brent & Sarah's Comedy & Magic Show at 2000 and 2200.  MUTS today showed Cirque du Soleil Delirium, a Cheryl Crow Concert (2003), Hall & Oats Live in Dublin, and the Movie Judy.

 

That's all for now; I'll check in later.

 

Hope all are well.....😊😊😊

Hi Bob ..I do hope Holli feels better tomorrow ,we board on 15th and are on the count down.

I think I read somewhere the bedside lamps have a USB port ..not sure if that is true and wonder if you could confirm.

I must say I did enjoy Movies on the Lido deck in the evening but I guess with the new TV choices they do more concerts now .

Enjoy the rest of your cruise .

They do, but it's not best practice to use them.  USB ports available just about everywhere offer unscrupulous characters an easy method for installing spyware on attached devices.  Best to use your own charging block and cable to charge your device.

Good morning all from the Sky Princess (0501 local time).  We got an hour back last night so you’d think I would have got more sleep.  Nope, body told me it was time to get up at 0430.  Right now I,m sitting outside the World Fresh Market Place near the aft pool.

 

It is noticeably more humid today as we near Roatan. I’m sure once the sun comes up, the heat will also start.  Today’s we are scheduled to do a coastal sail & snorkel cruise.  I’m going to check wit Holli in a couple of hours to see how she is feeling.

 

Got some good news yesterday in that “EZ-Check” will be available at the end of the cruise when we disembark in Fort Lauderdale.  It will be so nice not seeing the luggage until we get to LAX.  A little later today I’m going to order the car service to take us to Miami airport.  I always pay a little extra to hire a private car when we travel to Miami.  We both find it more comfortable than the usual bus ride.

 

Well that’s all for now.  
 

I’ll check in later.

 

Hope all are well.....😊😊😊

I’m not sure about other cabins and their configurations, but we are in a PH suite on Riviera Deck and there is one on the side of the bed near the vanity.  We have som friends onboard that are in balcony cabins.  I will check with them later to see about their cabins.....

Thanks for the heads up.  I never thought about it in that light...

Sorry about the non cruise post, a but proud papa has to brag.  The pet hotel where Bailey is staying at sent us this picture on Sunday.  It’s hard to believe he’s only 20 weeks old. We both can’t wait to see him on Sunday......😊😊😊

Have fun in Roatan;  we did beach day there.  The ship docked right at the beach; so we walked off ship and headed to the beach.

Regarding the usb port near the bed.  I charge my iphone and ipad and have never had any usb port in hotels and ships install spyware.  Apple has the best security for their products.  I am aircrew member and stay in over 200 hotels a year.  Never had an issue with usb ports.  Have fun out there.

Yes they do . I kept my devices charged there 24/7 for my Med and TA cruise on her.

Very convenient.

Someone was asking  in an earlier post that’s cruising on the sky soon, is Roatan local time and ship time the same? Apparently they have a tour outside of Princess that they’re trying to coordinate. 

 I show that Roatan is 9:35 AM local time right now.

Hi, Bob, You probably haven't had time/interest, but would you happen to know if the in-room TV has free movies, streaming on demand? Royal and Regal have this option, but I wonder about Sky . . . if they make you pay for it. Thanks! Brian
