5  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Princess lifeguards on duty - or not on: November 21, 2019, 01:34:48 PM
"In 2016, Princess Cruises began advertising for lifeguards to man its onboard pools, however the employees would only work on Asian cruises.

One advertisement read: “Be the Consummate Host and delight our passengers by monitoring and operating all water-based recreation facilities including, opening, closing and monitoring the safety and volume of the swimming pool and general activities around the pool areas including environmental issues. Assist with investigating any medical situations or security matters that may arise, and promptly report to Deck and Medical and work with Security team to correct any Security issues in order to maintain a safe and secure shipboard environment …”

The employee is charged with “monitoring the pool areas” and “keeping pool areas clean”, and “efficiently and calmly reacts to incidents where any individual may be in need of minor first aid or lifesaving actions (prior to the medical team’s attendance)”.

A Princess Cruises spokesperson told Cruise&Travel Asia: “With Princess Cruises’ expansion into China, a decision was made to have swimming pool monitors in Asia where widespread proficiency in swimming is far less likely than in other regions.”

In Australian waters however, parents must supervise their children at all times when using the pools, as there are no lifeguards on duty."

No one can remember the last time Coke wasn't served by Carnival, company spokesman Vance Gulliksen said."

14  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Upsell vs Upgrade on: November 16, 2019, 04:51:54 PM
I agree.  Princess has largely switched from free category upgrades like balcony to a mini or to a suite, to upsells.  Princess has also greatly raised the price of upsells as well.  BUT in the unlikely event that the upsell price is truly amazing you must grab it FAST.  Can you request an upsell?  Well good luck on that. Likely won't happen.   My experience is you never exactly know if or when an upsell offer will be offered to you by the Princess upsell fairy.  Typically they come out a few weeks before your cruise date.   If your cruise agent is asleep at the switch you may never hear about an the upsell offer.  On the last upsell offers I have received I have declined due to the high upsell price.
