Couldn't agree more with your title. Looks like money spent to attract people to spend more & not provide anything really new like fixing the food prep & layout of the Horizon to mimic the Royal class.
These older ships should be sold off & the money put to better use competing with other cruise lines.

She seems perfect for the team.  Cheesy Cheesy
Why bother to hire someone who knows the travel industry? Get people who know clothing, jewelry & perfume.  Grin

Great thing about Doubletree is that they let you park your car in a specific place on their lot for your entire cruise.  I have done so for 28 day So. Pacific cruise.  If you live within driving distance to San Pedro and your cruise starts and ends in San Pedro you can't beat their PARK and CRUISE package.  Great hotel, great service, good prices!!
Hotels in Ft Lauderdale do something similar but some limit you to a max number of days (around 10 to 14) & then begin charging per day. I've never seen anything close to 28 days.

I've been banned so many times from CC I can't remember all my past screen names.
Unfortunately even the mention of this site will get you a warning from Cruise Critic.
I will say their site does have a load of information that can't be found elsewhere.....so I continue to post there even with the warnings.  Cheesy
35  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / RCCL CocoCay Prices on: June 22, 2018, 11:56:47 AM
I though some of the prices for Princess Cays activities were expensive but after reading about RCCL they don't
look all that bad.

As I recall there weren't any stores even close by.
37  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Latest unofficial daily Princess schedule on: June 13, 2018, 08:16:59 AM
I finally got the new schedule to download - using Open Office. (I'm to cheap to pay for Microsoft)
I had to reload my Open Office to do it. Weird.
It's the most complete & concise way of checking schedules for Princess + I can tailor it for my own trips.
Thanks again.

We always go on the Emerald deck bump out cabins mid ship. They have decent size balconies and it's quicker to get to the Piazza & show lounge.
No idea about hotels near Los Angeles.

Not for me but many will sail on it.

We got assigned into a guaranteed room one cruise that was a room from hell.
No air conditioning to speak of and there was no other cabin available to switch into.
I think they well know about these problem cabins from past cruisers complaints & hold them back until they're forced to assign them. I'm positive there are loads of cabins they know are problem cabins & only use them as a last resort to fill the ship and maximize profits.
(only a hunch)  Huh
41  Princess Cruising / Cruising Tips Chatter / Re: 5 Ways to Get a Free Cruise Ship Cabin Upgrade on: May 29, 2018, 06:37:33 AM
All of those suggestions have never worked well for me. Even the guarantee cabin we once received turned out to be a dud.
I'll stick to my selected cabin & be happy with it, knowing it size & location & not be surprised by noise in the early morning, music being played late at night or other unseen cabin problems.

Selling a dining package at a discount is a missed opportunity got Princess.
43  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Latest unofficial daily Princess schedule on: May 21, 2018, 02:55:12 PM
I'll have to download another copy of Open Office. This is the first time I've had a problem.

They're still getting mileage out of that old TV program.  Cheesy
45  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Sky Princess Sky Suites with MUTS view on: May 21, 2018, 04:53:21 AM
It's a shame they're only sailing 7 day trips.  Sad We usually don't book anything shorter than 10 days but I suppose they want as many people to be introduced to the ship as possible during the winter season.
