  1. I do have to say I am impressed with Princess. i have sailed with NCL and RCCL. Both of those lines have added so many extras that I personally don’t use anymore. I’ve done the flow rider, zip line, ice skating. Now I enjoy good service with a good staff, without the rock climbing. Have fun with your Princess Cruise
  2. Let me comment on this. I have stayed in Grand Suite with Royal Caribbean and have stayed in Penthouse Suite with Princess. These two suites are a good match. I have stayed in Royals owner suite; but have not stayed in Princess Owners Suite. Back to comparison. If you want to book a penthouse suite; book an aft penthouse suite. The balcony is huge; way bigger than same suite on side of ship. There is a couch in living room that makes into bed. You have the large bedroom with queen bed. Bathroom has shower and tub. You will have perks mentioned above; free laundry. Your cabin steward will send it in; and you will have it back by days end. You get a mini bar setup; booze, sodas, water. You will get flowers and fruit basket on departure; plus you will receive hors d'overes pretty much every afternoon. On departure night you will receive free dining in one of the specialty restaurants. There is no reserved seating at the pool or theater. You will have priority boarding on departure. Someone from Princess will escort you to the vip lounge in the terminal; where you will board the ship. I will enclose some pics of my aft penthouse suite.
  3. I booked one of those rooms and am excited to see what it looks like when the ship sails. I actually book a window suite; so that is an oceanview. I figured, since we will be cruising in October to New England and Canada; we won't need to sit out on balcony. We shall see. Can't get too excited, since it's over a year away.
  4. Ditto Jeter02. Been in two aft suites on two different ships. Can't beat the big balcony and the big view.
  5. If you book thru Royal Caribbeans air program; if the ship is late arriving they will rebook you on a later flight. If you walk off at 7-7:30 you should be ok
  6. Purduemom1; you got as much sleep in your economy seat than when you were in Delta One Suite: is that correct? How about the quality of your sleep? preschool teacher, suggest you contact the Royal Caribbean travel air dept for those flights and get a reading on what basic economy is or main cabin on Delta? Have a great day. Like others mentioned basic economy is just a fare that Delta uses; however, I do not think basic economy is used international. I think its main cabin, economy plus, premium select(on certain flights), and Delta One
  7. Dag49; check with Norwegian Cruise line. As mentioned in post #9; NCL's newer larger ships offer solo cabins; they have their own solo lounge to meet and mingle; and single beds in cabin. Check them out
  8. Hello, I can not give you specific answer to your question; but I will suggest you post this question on the Europe ports of call board. Some of the experts there may not even look at this site.
  9. Hello, Princess offers discounts to buy internet prior to boarding; you can sign up in your cruise personalizer. If you are an elite member with Princess you also get some free minutes, or discounted plan. When I sailed Caribbean Princess in Feb (first ship to have medallion net); they offered a pre-cruise price in my personalizer for $59.95. Once onboard it was the same price; however, for those members who were elite; they could combine the elite minutes for a discount off the $59.95 plan. I don't know exactly; but they saved around $10-15 of the plan. Hope this helps answer your question. On may sailing the price was the same pre cruise or onboard
  10. The OP did ask a question. Perhaps they logged on and read all the answers without replying back; or perhaps they have not been back since posting. One would think that if you come on these forums and ask a question; and get ten to twenty answers; you would thank the people who gave the answers. Or perhaps not. Everyone have a great time cruising
  11. If you add your frequent flyer number when you book EZ air; you can log into your preferred airline frequent flyer account and the trip will be there. I have done this twice flying Delta.
  12. Have fun on your cruise and enjoy the medallion. We received our medallions three weeks prior to sailing
  13. Jasonmom; you got a great deal.
  14. Liz_B; I sailed on CB in Feb. If you like your coffee strong then the coffee card for int'l marketplace is for you. The coffee in buffet is mild; not like a french roast. I made my own iced coffee everyday sometimes twice a day. I stop by buffet fill up my carafe with ice and then go over to the coffee machine and pour it over my ice. This works for me and I have no issues with it. The buffet has great choices for lunch; salads, sandwiches, and they always have one or two specials set up. The specials are back by where planks is; most people don't go that far back; so they never see the specials. The specials when we were onboard were (fajita bar, pasta bar, mediteranean bar). Check it out. Have fun on your cruise. Oh by the way; there is one coffee machine in buffet which will grind the beans before it makes your coffee; I forget where it is located. Sorry
  15. California is a big state; and according to my apple maps; it's part of the US
