New balcony furniture: What's the schedule for each ship?


Recommended Posts

Since the fire on the Star, Princess has been gradually replacing the plastic balcony furniture with furniture made of some sort of mesh. In the most recent Regal review, a CC official reviewer stated that Regal would get the new furniture in October 2006. Is there a schedule we can access somewhere that tells when the other Princess ships will get the new furniture?

They switched out our balcony furniture on the Caribbean princess just the day prior to us disembarking the ship, August 22. They had to ask to use our cabin as the cabin door had to be removed so they could fit the new chairs through. The did the change out of all the cabins in our 'row' through our cabin.

Not sure if there is any schedule, but I do know they are working on it, slowly.

I have to say it was comfortable. At first, I thought - "what were they thinking" - metal in the hot Caribbean sun???....Then, when we sat in them we realized not bad....

We use our balcony a lot. Morning - sailing into ports, relaxing a bit before dinner, then at night to see the stars....I can't complain about the furniture at all. I just wished the balcony was a bit bigger with loungers and an automatic drink dispenser. :) :) :)
