We just finished a Caribbean cruise on Caribbean Princess and Medallion worked flawlessly.

keep in mind that OM - Ocean Medallion and MedallionNet are two different things. OM is the bluetooth goodie you wear and MN is the new MEO satellite system that delivers super fast internet...

Thanks for the update Mike. Just got back into CONUS today from 60 days on the Coral. One less thing to do before January WC...

"A spokesman for the cruise line told NBC News in a statement that the Royal Princess ship was traveling to Aruba when the death occurred. The woman's husband got off the ship in Aruba and is cooperating with investigators, a spokesman said."

"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."

"Passengers were first alerted to the incident when they heard an announcement around 4:30 a.m. for the security team to respond to deck 7 underneath lifeboat number 2."

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.

I’ve since been told that the Atrium/Piazza elevators bypass the fire doors.  BTW the Princess pizza crust still tastes like cardboard to me.

Coffee in Horizon Court was foamy and watered down.

Newly installed TV system in cabins makes flat TVs protrude slightly from the wall.  Closed Caption and aspect ratio controls on the remotes were disabled.  Fox News channel called MSNBC on text display when pushing remote OK button.

On the CB they told us that the cabins would be ready at 1 PM but we just went there early to drop off our luggage- No problem.
No closed fire doors.

In-transit news at San Pedro

You must show your passport to multiple people multiple times.
You will be allowed to board the ship at 11 but all cabin hallways are closed off by heavy fire doors until all cabins are ready.  Say about 1 pm.  If the heavy doors are opened an alarm will sound.
Elite laundry turnaround is up to three days, per a written ship notice, on the California Coastal itinerary due to large numbers of Elites.
BTW The baked alaska parade in the dinning rooms still happens on the last night and is louder than ever.  Some passengers questioned whether the baked alaska cakes were real or fake.
