1  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / A MARITIME NIGHTMARE on: December 17, 2018, 12:06:15 PM
"On May 12, 2016, Samantha Broberg—a mother of two and stepmother to two more—boarded the Carnival Liberty in Galveston, Texas with two girlfriends.
Here’s what her family has been able to glean about the 33-year-old’s roughly 12 hours onboard that ship, which has a capacity of over 4,000 passengers and crew, and boasts a rum bar, a tequila bar, and a sports bar, as well as a casino and a Mexican cantina. Broberg—who at 5’5,” weighed 120 lbs—was served 19 drinks, her husband alleges in an ongoing civil suit (pdf) he brought against Carnival. Just before 2am, after leaving a bar, she climbed onto a deck chair that was pushed up against a railing on the pool deck."

2  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Royal Princess renovation on: December 16, 2018, 07:10:51 PM
"Princess Cruises has announced that one of their largest cruise ships, Royal Princess, has completed a multi-million dollar renovation that saw several new features added to the vessel.  In 100 days, the cruise ship will arrive in Los Angeles and offer West Coasters convenient, roundtrip Los Angeles cruises starting March 23, 2019.

Royal Princess just completed a multi-million dollar renovation and received several new features, including:

Princess Luxury Bed – available in every stateroom aboard Royal Princess, the Princess Luxury Bed was developed by Princess Cruises in collaboration with board-certified sleep expert, Dr. Michael Breus. The plush bed offers the ultimate night of sleep at sea combining the science of sleep with the pinnacle of design.

Lotus Spa & Fitness Center – a space where guests can relax and invigorate, new equipment is now available in salon and treatment rooms and the latest in fitness machines is now available.  

In addition, guests will be thoroughly entertained while sailing aboard Royal Princess with the following top-rated production shows performed live in the Princess Theater:
The Secret Silk – the newest production show developed in partnership with award-winning composer of “Wicked,” “Godspell” and “Pippin” – Stephen Schwartz. Along with Schwartz’s cadre of Broadway talent, “The Secret Silk” was created and directed by John Tartaglia, a star of Broadway hits such as “Avenue Q” and includes life-size puppetry from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, featuring dance and special effects that transports guests to a mythical realm.

Encore – inspired by the cruise line’s top-rated show, “Bravo!” and accompanied by an impressive onstage orchestra, “Encore” celebrates the traditions of pop, opera and musical theater. The show was directed and choreographed by Disney Channel Creative Director Danny Teeson, with musical direction by Academy Awards Arranger Nelson Kole and set design by Emmy award-winner John Iacovelli.
On the top deck, Watercolor Fantasy captivates guests as brightly colored lights illuminate the water offering a show of waltzes, pirouettes and fountains shooting water up to 33 feet high all choreographed to music."

On the Ruby Princess, a few weeks ago, they were not offering combined B2B Elite minutes at the start of leg one.  They did however carry over unused leg 1 Elite minutes into leg 2.

6  Princess Cruising / Cruising Tips Chatter / Princess visa card - What's in your wallet? on: November 22, 2018, 05:28:14 PM
"The Princess Cruises Rewards Visa Card can offer some benefit to Princess Cruises fans who spend a lot with the cruise line, and its flexible redemption options are a plus. But its complicated redemption tiers can be confusing.

Even if you do take to the sea on a regular basis, other travel cards offer more lucrative sign-up bonuses and point-earning programs that are easier to understand and potentially better fits for everyday spending. Research these options to make sure the Princess Cruises Rewards Visa Card is seaworthy for you."

"A 52-year-old American woman aboard a Princess Cruises ship sailing in the Caribbean died Tuesday in what authorities are treating as a possible murder case, according to several news outlets in the region.

Aruba-based Diario reports the woman plunged from an upper deck of the 3,600-passenger Royal Princess onto a lifeboat after struggling with a man who was seen choking her. Another Aruba-based outlet, MasNoticia.com, reports authorities are investigating the incident as a possible murder case.

The ship was sailing between the islands of Curacao and Aruba at the time of the incident."

Three additional ways to save depending on how generous Princess is feeling at the time.  Your mileage may greatly vary!

1. Gambler fares: You may only pay port fees, get a white lanyard for free drinks in the casino, captain’s private party at times and a black card.  You may also get free air.

2. Move over fares:  When the ship or cabin class is oversold your original fare may be refunded and a free future cruise or at least a free different level cabin may be offered.  Sometimes future on board credits may also be offered.  These move over deals are typically offered to those living near the embarkation port.

3.. Suite upgrade offers:  If you receive this offer you have to move very fast but beware -  Princess has lately been making this offer pretty pricy.
