Carnival Corp bean counters want to invest your money sooner. Huh
2  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Princess $49 advance board and disembark fee was tested on the Ruby Princess on: April 12, 2018, 11:42:08 PM
I can't believe anyone would be so foolish to pay an additional $49 to board an hour earlier at most.  Cheesy
What about "Additionally, those who purchase the option can choose an early or late disembarkation time."
Does that meany they can stay on the ship after the new passengers are boarding? Possibly until the ship is ready to sail?
If it's the case it might actually might sell.

Just a cover charge for what Suite/Elite/Platinum cruisers get as a Captains Circle perk, priority embarkation and you can choose your disembarkation time, within reason.  I doubt the proposal includes staying on board until just before sailing, just a late disembarkation, e.g. 10am.

What next we ask, a charge for MUTS and the popcorn? Roll Eyes

Am on Royal 18 June, I hope the musical is on then.

I note it is on Island and Diamond, later on.
I know they were only scheduled for a certain amount of showings. I'm not positive when the troupe was schedules to leave the ship... possibly before the crossing to Europe?

Thanks Rich, have to wait and see. Huh  Royal would be soon doing the transatlantic for the European summer cruise season, would it not?

Not for us, but many Aussies take the drink package.  Perhaps those that do never get off the ship, they just imbibe.  Roll Eyes

Thanks Mike, we are on Sapphire 26 May and 2 June - B2B, looking good.  My brother in law and sister in law are on currently on Sapphire - Singapore to Southampton. They tell me the ship is in good order and they were the first on the new mattresses, very comfortable.
7  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: 500 days on Princess is it a big deal. on: March 20, 2018, 06:06:42 PM
G'day, I read somewhere that Princess is recognising a pax achieving 500 sailing days on Princess by presentation of an expensive bottle of champers at the Capts.Circle Cocktail party or at the Most Travelled Passenger luncheon, that is if the respondent is invited.  

Not the $3 Korbel bubbly garbage we normally get for winning trivia or the belly flop competition. Grin

Any truth in the above?
I hate to break the news to you but they no longer give even the cheap Korbel champagne for winning at trivia due to the cutbacks.
It's now a coaster or wine stopper.  Roll Eyes

You have made my day, no more 2 buck Korbel trivia, I suppose the water bottles and luggage tag holders are cost prohibitive too. Roll Eyes  No doubt the wonderful Korbel is still served at the Captains Circle parties and in the mini suites/suites.

And yet they still fight over the cheap gifts at trivia like they were something to cherish.  Cheesy

They sure do Rich...Trivia Rage... anybody would think it was the World Championships. Kiss

They know that the average Princess cruiser wouldn't stoop to smuggling.
Would they?  Wink Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

The Princess Alcohol Police know all the tricks, they even read the idiotic posts on CC re 'how we smuggled our booze on.'  Roll Eyes

Welcome to Princess Chatter and thanks for your review.  I have had a couple of posts removed from 'that site' in the past few weeks.  They are a bit touchy.

Not done Caribbean in full, only a couple of Ports when we did Panama Canal on Coral from FLL to LA a few years ago.  I would like to do the whole Caribbean thing though. Grin

I'm surprised they have yet to determine who was behind the bombing.

12  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: EZ Air is not always EZ on: March 12, 2018, 06:54:27 PM
Thanks Mike, I trust your blood pressure has settled. Grin

Personally I don't think Princess EZ Air is that competitive in price.  We fly from Sydney to Heathrow in May for land travel/cruises.  We like Cathay Pacific, going through Hong Kong.  EZ Air were $1000 more expensive per person flying business class than prices direct on Cathay web site.  So guess which way we booked?

Maybe EZ air is ok for other routes from/through U.S. ? Sometimes Huh

I am the high street travel agent's worst nightmare according to my son, owner/founder/director of www.chimuadventures.com (that is him in the picture)
As I book our hotels, air travel, cruises direct with the supplier.   Grin   Cut out the middle man, the T.A. Cheesy

From Princess...'Buy One Get One for $1' (BOGO) aka 'Happy Hour'  is currently being phased out/eliminated from Princess Cruise Ships. Cry

I think many of us knew that anyway. If they want to increase booze sales and achieve targets why don't they reduce drinks by 50%, say a beer or house wine by the glass for $3 and a glass.  Shocked  I'll drink to that. Grin Shocked
14  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: Cheaper by the dozen on: March 12, 2018, 06:44:07 PM
If only they could design them with a walk around promenade deck. We are on Royal in May and I don't like the look of it much.  Many of you sailed on her or Regal/Majestic?  You like her?  We have a mini suite on Baja Deck.
15  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Re: 500 days on Princess is it a big deal. on: February 23, 2018, 08:43:59 PM
Yes. We got the 500 day treatment on our Panama Canal cruise last year. Very, VERY impressed.

Flowers, the good champagne - same as the most traveled package champagne - a signed card, a special tour and meeting with the captain and staff.

A big surprise for us and greatly appreciated...

Thanks mate, the 'Boss' and I will achieve 500 days whilst on Sapphire or Royal in May/June.   I will see what happens. Grin
