Sounds OK to me. Just send them to the US market & it'll lower our prices for all the new ships.  Wink

I wonder why they didn't chose another port for turn-a-round?

I wonder, is Princess the only cruise like that had violations?

What's next? Possibly a cooking class tour?
It might prove to be interesting.
35  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?
36  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.

I'll bet they remove them when it hits the American market.
38  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

"The new 'onshore activity' craved by cruise ship passengers."
I'm not to sure about that.  Huh

They made it sound like it was named similar to a Disney ship.
Whatever works.
I suppose it as to grow on you.

"Nothing spells relaxation like being in a small room on a ship in the middle of the ocean with two small dictators disguised as children, right?"
If that's the way the parents feel about their kids, just imagine how the rest of us feel when their released on the ship.  Angry

They're not for everyone.  Wink

We didn't have to fill out a form since the beginning of 2017 although I had one on my carry bag just in case.
Unless someone reports a large sale that you've made during the cruise (like from one of the shops on board) how are they to really know anyway?
45  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Princess Not as Good as in the Past on: August 27, 2018, 04:45:46 AM
We just returned from a 12 night British Isles cruise on Royal Princess. This was our first Princess cruise in two years. We found that dining room service was slower than we recalled on past Princess cruises. One reason may be that there are fewer assistant waiters. Information from the Princess galley tour noted that there are 109 waiters on board, but only 40 assistants. It used to be a one-to-one ratio.

Yea, I sort of noticed a slowdown in the main DR on out last trip but thought it was just a fluke. We stopped going to the DR most of the time & ate at the Horizon where it was so much faster to eat & the food was great. No complaints from the wife or myself.

Food quality was hit-or-miss. Fish was usually overcooked or mushy. Beef was usually good. The best food on the ship was at the International Cafe.
Didn't see any degrade in preparation at all.

The tender process was unacceptable. There were long waits to disembark and re-embark at tender ports.

Shore excursions were grossly overpriced.

It's been overpriced for years now. Nothing new from my standpoint.

Production shows were good.
Good, but getting a little tired if you cruise many times a year. There's only so many dance routines they can come up with that hold my interest.  The new show, the Secret Silk,  was different and at least it wasn't another song & dance performance.

The “Movies under the stars” screen was used to screen concerts and movies most days, instead of providing live music.
Always loud & obnoxious during the day so we never sit in that area.
See above.
