  1. Had the PBP on our cruise in January. First couple of days, I only had one glass of wine at dinner, but then started adding a second. Wait staff was on top of everything and would ask before my glass was empty if I wanted another glass. It was ordered early and delivered to our table. They even asked and brought us bottles of water to take back to the cabin with us.
  2. We were on the Sky in January; at the port around 11 and onboard in our stateroom well before noon. There were a couple of minor issues with our medallions but they were quickly corrected and we were on our way.
  3. We weren't there long because no one on the tour wanted to do the mud baths. I think there are showers but am not sure. You should be able to google it to see what is available.
  4. Absolutely agree. Mom was embellishing....she seems to do that a lot.
  5. Sky has a USB port by the bed but none of the other Princess ships that I have sailed on have a power outlet/USB port by the bed (been on Emerald, Caribbean and Regal.) There are two regular outlets by the desk.
  6. Wow! This thread has meandered a bit along the way! Regarding the original post and mom/sick kid......I read about this several days ago and followed for a few days on other social media sites. First question-mom supposedly had travel insurance, however, the original injury to the child happened before she/he boarded the ship. According to one of her FB rants, "he got sick within 24 hours of boarding." I suspect the infection started before he boarded the ship; the original injury was DEFINITELY before he boarded. Depending on when they purchased insurance, will this even be covered? She was given the option of getting off in Cozumel to seek treatment but opted not to. The reason given was no passport and, according to another rant, she was supposedly told she wouldn't be able to get back on the ship without a passport. I've never had to have my passport to reboard a cruise ship at a port and I seriously doubt anyone from the ship told her that. I'm thinking mom has embellished a bit for sympathy. I suspect she realized that her credit card had already been maxed out due to the on board treatment her son had been given and that a Mexican hospital was going to demand payment before she could leave. She ranted on FB about how awful the ship was and implied that they were so worried; the situation was dire and the ship dropped the ball in requesting medical care for the gravely ill child(ie Coast Guard evacuation.) The captain "wasn't informed of the medical emergency." (Perhaps because there wasn't one?) Pictures of her son's face were posted (and yes, they looked bad.) Yet....the day they disembarked, after he'd been treated on board the "horrible" ship, she posted a picture of her desperately ill son standing beside his bed in the hospital where they eventually ended up. Later, she posted a video of the child running around the room......I think the situation was again, embellished a bit for sympathy. Pictures posted at this point show the child's injury looks much, much better than the one earlier.....the redness around the child's eye was gone indicating the infection was healing. Apparently the doctor on board the ship actually knew what he/she was doing and provided appropriate care! This whole story just irks me to no end! Mom was irresponsible on so many issues, yet mentions in a FB post that she'll be "seeing the cruise line in court." How dare NCL have the gall to cut off her latte when she has a $9K bill pending on her cruise account!! Yet, people on social media jump to her defense....poor women.....struggling without her designer coffee....and actually send her money. I'm sure she'll be sending refunds to all the good souls should insurance actually cover the medical bills. (cough) I hope the child is fine. Mom.....no sympathy whatsoever for this woman. Sorry......sometimes I feel the need to rant. 😕
  7. We did a catamaran trip from Castries to Soufriere a couple of years ago. Once at Soufriere, we boarded a big van to visit some of the other areas including the mud baths. The trip was very nice; we even had time to snorkel and the Pitons are beautiful by water. St. Lucia is my favorite Caribbean island. We've been there several times on cruises and love going there. Enjoy!
  8. Usually destination, occasionally ship but has to be a destination that I want to visit (so kind of both but destination is USUALLY the deciding factor.)
  9. We stayed at the Hotel Forum last summer. View of the Forum and within easy walking distance of a lot of sites. Beautiful old hotel with a rooftop bar/restaurant. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
  10. We sailed in July on Emerald in 3 staterooms. Anyone in the photo who had the photo package, regardless of anyone else in the photo, got the photo.
  11. I think we had two at most ports last week on Sky. Getting off quickly wasn't a problem at any of the ports (even the tender ports.)
  12. In defense of the Assistant Cruise Director...I don't think his joking with us about an obvious error meant that he wasn't taking the muster drill or our safety seriously. It was our responsibility to have it changed and he directed us to where we should have had it done. I see his joking with us along the same lines as Princess using the Love Boat theme for the muster drills....trying to make it a little less annoying while still providing the needed information. Thanks again to all who've commented!
  13. He was taking a risk that we might have taken him seriously and been offended, but we thought it was great. He was an Assistant Cruise Director on a previous cruise and we'd seen his sense of humor before and really enjoyed it.
  14. We've used Embassy a couple of times and have always arrived in Ft. Lauderdale early in the morning. Embassy held our bags as our room wasn't ready but we were still able to get into our room around noon (even though check in is 4PM.) We didn't pay anything extra (but are Hilton Honors members, so maybe that helps?) Get your shuttle ticket for the transfer to the pier when you check in to save yourself the hassle of wading through the hoards in the lobby in the morning.
