Princess to sharply hike onboard fees
« on: December 08, 2022, 12:26:06 PM »
"In the coming weeks, the world's fifth-largest cruise line plans to hike the automatic gratuity fee it charges passengers by more than 10% to $16 per person per day for those staying in most cabins.

It also plans an unusually sharp hike to the amount it charges for onboard Wi-Fi, with the cost of single-device plans soaring by 50% to $15 a day.

Four-device plans at the line will rise to $40 a day — an astounding 167% price hike.

The price hikes for gratuity fees and Wi-Fi fees will take effect on Dec. 14 and Feb. 20, respectively."

That's it for me. I'll live without their plus package from now on.
There trying to make up for all those covid losses, but that's crazy.  ???

I don't see the value in the Princess Plus package unless you are a heavy drinker.

You've got that right. We tried to hit 15 drinks every day and it got to the point of being nauseating.
Once our Plus packages are finished we'll return to the days of just paying out gratuities normally and forget the drinks.
