I'm sorry if I missed it ... how full is the ship?


There are 2286 passengers onboard as of yesterday and over 1000 crew and staff.  They consider this approx 60% capacity.

They offered the most delicious blueberry sorbet tonight.  

That sounds so good.  I can’t wait to cruise again.  I better start my diet now because I want at least one of everything (while I sit here eating crackers).

Yes!  And those just came today … Yoo-hoo!  
The cut off time is no earlier than 11:00 AM.  
Not all but several airlines qualified. If I see the form again, I will try to remember to take a picture to post.

I have a question if you please,  I think I've read that you can see the entire weeks patter schedule on the app.  If that's so, fantastic!  Could someone check to see if they are doing the Stephan Schwartz production "Magic To Do" during this itinerary?  Fingers crossed, but I'm expecting to be disappointed.
(Which isn't too bad since we get another shot at it in March 2022 on Discovery to Mexico 😃 )
THANK YOU ALL ! ! !

Can one of you on-board tell us about elevator use, restrictions, number allowed on at once, enforcement?

Magic to do is only on select ships. Unfortunately it is not on the royal class ships including the Majestic.

I think Magic to do was on the Royal Princess.  I am sure someone will tell me if I am wrong! 🤣

Correct. The Royal Princess had Magic to Do. I don't believe it was on any other ship.

Interesting. Well I know it was on the Ruby Princess and Crown Princess which are part of the grand class ships.

Seeing the Italian menu made me realize I have not seen any of the Curtis Stone feature mains.  I wonder if those are no longer, or they just aren't stretching the galley repertoire at this time.  We liked a couple of those items between us.

Bleh. The prime rib is not good. Not good at all. Crab was amazing though!

It's been couple years since Princess served tasty rather than cheap prime rib.  Sad.

It's Swartz

I know.  I made a typo correcting another post.  There are two missing posts about follow-up correction - someone must have requested them to be deleted.  If so, I wish they could have fixed mine.

I'm hoping and praying that they offer the Curtis Stone salty caramel custard, which they typically have if I'm not mistaken on the second formal night at least according to home my past Cruises. That dessert is to die for.

If I live to sail into Skagway a hundred times I would still want to sail in a hundred more. It’s a 3 hour slow roll through archipelago and fjord……snow capped mountains with rushing waterfalls, low lying forested islands…….simply stunning.  Especially from an aft cabin. 

The ship barely makes a wake almost as slow as glacier bay itself. This trip I was up  at 4 am and we get to port at 7 am. The trip out tonight will just as wonderful only different lighting. 

 

The entire sail so far Seattle to here has been like sailing on a lake. Barely any movement, just enough to know you’re sailing. 

 

A few more notes from my experiences.  My free elite laundry is 3 day turn around. My elite mini bar set up is identical to past ones. It does incl the brandy in the glass jar. I mention that because on my last sailing in 2019 the brandy wasn’t available. The PES happy hour has been the same as always. There’s a lovely singer who plays guitar. 

 

My Rivera deck aft cabin had a little soot the first day but yesterday and today there’s been none. I get a small faint whiff of smoke from the deck 17 aft smoking area occasionally. It passes quickly and does not linger. 

 

The ship position map is on the tv in the Patter section. It no longer includes longitude, latitude, temperature or sea depth. Just degrees, heading and speed. Also the zoom in out isn’t as fine tuned as before, meaning you go from too far out to too far in with one click. 

 

They don’t have the passport stamps or the pop out ships maps…the one with a picture of the ship and your room number on it. 

 

So I was talking to Neville last night and he said he will only have the one chef table for us. He is doing a wine table as well. He was talking about how special this first post pandemic chef table was for him. I echoed the feeling as he and I have had lots of good times at past chef tables. 

 

There are very few on board who wear masks.  I’ve stopped carrying mine around. I isolated before the trip and wore a kn95 on the plane and at all times in the hotel outside my room. Being vaccinated and careful I feel certain I didn’t carry covid with me on board. 

We meet, we socialize, we sit side by side at bars, we laugh, we sing along with songs, we eat with new friends…..nothing about this has changed. Since we have only 2286 or so pax the elevators have been very easy to get with the aft elevators of course the easiest as always. 

 

I was talking to Helen up decks after she almost won the first Yes/No Game show. That show was wet your pants fun! She and her son were masked up and I asked her if she wouldn’t mind letting me know why… we were outside and it isn’t even suggested there. Even though they are vaccinated, they come from Florida near the cruise ports and said it was such a hotbed of delta variant she was being extra cautious to not bring the variant onboard. She’s been on 81 cruise and her 19 year old sweet son has 31 under his belt. 
I can’t believe I’m able to post this using medallion net.

I’ve seem Magic To Do and I’ve never sailed Royal.  
we had Barbara Mcculogh (totally spelled wrong) in the Theater last night.. late show only. 
we had Sweet soul music which was awesome and Encore is coming up next for production shows

 

you can definitely sit with others outside of your group in MDR and anywhere . I haven’t asked for a shared table in MDR but I’ll ask Neville next time I see him. 
 

elevators have no restrictions, other than your personal comfort level. If there’s too many people I wait for the next one or just go aft. Almost no one wears a mask on them or anywhere. We have all embraced the vaccine. If not now with 100% vaccinated then when?

Are they checking if you make a reservation for a show?

I have no idea what all the reservations were for. I have not seen anyone check for reservations.

Tuesday’s menu.

Was there no big main show last night? I re-reviewed the patter from yesterday and it looks like there were multiple smaller music acts, but not the main one???

 

 

There was no early show because the ship was in port until late evening.
