1  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Princess Cruise Line Makes Unexpected Dining Changes on: October 22, 2018, 04:43:30 AM
I supposed it's aimed at people like myself & the wife who really don't participate doing sail-a-ways & like to eat early in AT dining. It relieves the DR of the crowd somewhat for anytime dining but that still irritates those that like TD.

In the article they quoted “We have been confirmed for early dining at 6 p.m. for months. Yesterday, I was checking something on my booking and see that I have ‘requested and confirmed’ 5 p.m. dining, which is too early for us. How can Princess do this unannounced?”

Like you said Princess will be selling more drinks than ever & just like the confiscation of coffee punches, it's all business at the cost of pissing off a few of their loyal customers.
I hope this brilliant idea comes back to bite them in the back side. Time will tell.
I suppose the late traditional will more crowded than ever & the early shows will be really packed 45 minutes early??? Huh

I've been following a few people on board & they're comments were that it's working great. It's so quick that some of them were able to stream live programs without interruption.
Of course this was when they were still giving unlimited internet for everyone as compensation since the OM system still wasn't fully functioning. Now that the OM is pretty much in operation that's come to an end & they're back to the 250 minutes free for Platinum & Elite.....or you can buy the unlimited internet for $9.99 per day if purchased for the whole trip.
I'm not sure what the price is piece meal.
I wonder if they now give unlimited internet for all the crew as a bonus. (which they should)

Why was this group allowed to take over the ship & disrupt the vacations of all the other passengers?  Huh Huh
It seems to me that RCL could have given them a warning & if not complied with, simply eject them from the ship at the next port.
Instead they let them continue with their antics at the cost of ruining the trip for the rest of the passengers.
Something just doesn't add up.

It does sound like a great improvement for the internet speed.
I wonder if the crew now has unlimited access or are they still charging them?
5  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Princess is adding an attraction - Puerto Seco Beach in Jamaiaca on: September 30, 2018, 04:31:36 AM
It appears they cleaned up the beach area quite a bit.
I'm wondering how people will get there from the ship.  Huh
Will Princess be providing a free shuttle or will it be just another tour at top dollar?  Roll Eyes

If they do provide a shuttle I'm also wondering if they'll have priority boarding for Elite? Grin

They're not exactly tourist friendly.  Angry
7  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Re: Deploy and build new cruise ships for China and they will NOT come on: September 17, 2018, 04:40:19 AM
Sounds OK to me. Just send them to the US market & it'll lower our prices for all the new ships.  Wink
8  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Re: GALVESTON FLOODING STRANDS CARNIVAL CRUISE PASSENGERS on: September 17, 2018, 04:36:55 AM
I wonder why they didn't chose another port for turn-a-round?
9  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Claimed Princess air and wastewater violations in Alaska 2018 on: September 16, 2018, 04:53:08 PM
I wonder, is Princess the only cruise like that had violations?
10  Princess Cruising / Princess Cruise Agent Chatter / Re: Princess Cruises held a cooking challenge for travel agents in Malaysia on: September 04, 2018, 08:01:39 AM
What's next? Possibly a cooking class tour?
It might prove to be interesting.
11  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: The "Ernesto" Princess burger is now available in L.A. on: September 01, 2018, 06:17:24 AM
Its not that great. Trust me. Its slider sized and they sauce it up so much its just sauce...and the fries are greasy...big disappointment...burgers at the grill can be much better...
The pix looks deceiving.
Another exaggeration of reality I suppose.  Cheesy I give credit to the photographer for his skill.
They have yet to tempt me to try one on the ship since the Royal buffet had so much to offer each day for lunch,
why pay extra for something else?
12  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: The "Ernesto" Princess burger is now available in L.A. on: August 31, 2018, 05:04:45 PM
I agree. It should be included as a main course for the DR at no extra charge.
After all, it'a only a hamburger.
13  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Princess Cruises Adds Tea and Coffee-making to Sapphire Princess Cabins on: August 30, 2018, 05:57:21 PM
I'll bet they remove them when it hits the American market.
14  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Sky Princess deep-tank top deck pools on: August 30, 2018, 05:54:22 PM
Just what I needed...."twice as many private cabanas as its sister ships"
After all some people probably had to rush to the PSD as soon as they boarded to get theirs.  Wink Wink Grin
I wonder if I'll even be able to see the pools water with all those cabanas around the edge?  Sad
15  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Cruise on Princess so you can do beach clean-ups and tree planting on: August 30, 2018, 05:49:11 PM
"The new 'onshore activity' craved by cruise ship passengers."
I'm not to sure about that.  Huh
