  1. Do you even need a cruise when you have a 17 year old wanna-be bartender?
  2. The violet cloud tasted like old people…
  3. That was one of the drinks my boy chose for me. Not something I would ever order, but surprisingly good. For a 13 year old, he has pretty good taste in cocktails!
  4. By any chance did your booking have pre-paid gratuities/crew appreciation (outside of the plus package) or, when you booked, was the plus package part of your booking as a promo (so you didn't pay "extra" for it but it was "gifted" as part of the promotion? I suspect that your booking already has an offer code attached (either for Plus or some other promotion) and the folks looking at your booking don't know how to handle that (the Princess agents are the WORST lately - I often have to go through at least 4 before I can find one that can actually help). It is simply a case of removing the offer code attached and assigning the new one. You just need to find a rep seasoned enough to know how to do this. That being said, it is possible that your booking was some kind of promo that will not combine with the offer code (you should know what promo you booked with). This is from the Princess FAQ: Does Princess Plus or Princess Premier combine with any other promotions, offers or cruise deals? Yes. Princess Plus and Princess Premier can be combined with most publicly available offers including Standard Groups, Cruise Sales, casino discounts, military benefits, Future Cruise Deposits, Princess Referral Rewards, geo-targeted and recipient-only offers and Captain's Circle Launch Savings. Princess Plus and Princess Premier are not combinable with any other promotions. If all else fails, would there be a huge price difference to just cancel and rebook (assuming final hasn't already passed)? If not, that may be the route to take. Or just wait until onboard and upgrade at that point...
  5. Ha! You’ve obviously never cruised with me! I close that ship down!
  6. I hope there are no unruly passengers on that one that keep you up partying all night!
  7. If you have a TA, they should be able to simply add the code to your booking and that will upgrade to the premiere package from plus. It's done right in Polar (the booking engine) and the code to add to go from Plus to Premiere is NEWPLS2PRM (assuming you booked Plus at $60 a day - the difference would be an additional $20 per day per person and both pax 1 and 2 must have it).
  8. Thank you! I knew that was the case on princess, but with the way RC sell the guarantee I thought you were locked into that category- my confirmation actually has a category as the guarantee rather than just a general “balcony guarantee “ like I’ve seen with other lines. Now I know! Not that I could have done anything different as there were no assigned rooms available at booking time in the neighborhood balconies. oh well. No big deal. The cabin assigned looks decent - mid ship, deck 11.
  9. I have a question, since RC is not my usual line. When I booked, I specifically chose a neighbourhood balcony as I had never experienced this type of cabin and wanted to test it out. The only option at booking time was for guarantee cabins - fine with me as I'm not at all picky about location. I just checked in and tried this "barcode" trick and the cabin showing appears to be an oceanview balcony - does RC usually randomly upgrade for free without informing people, or could this still change before we sail? I know I should be thrilled to have been upgraded (and ordinarily I would be) but for this situation, I really wanted to try out the boardwalk type balconies. Any RC experts know the answer to this?
  10. Wait....what??? For real? I swear I have read so many posts on here saying that they had removed it from the menu! That would make me very happy if it's still available!
  11. I laughed so hard at this. You know that the "lady next to you" is me at every single arts and crafts. My teen (who is the most artsy/crafty person I know) refuses to attend with me any more as the session ALWAYS ends with me being frustrated, a few swear words, and her doing my project. Lol.
  12. Everyone raves about the Tiramisu. For me, that is the most disappointing dessert ever (in general, not Alfredo’s-never tried it there). Such a waste of calories 🤣🤣
  13. Alfredo’s is my ride or die! Except my go-to has now gone (not that you would care as it’s about as meat focused as you can get). They had the best veal filled pasta pouches ever (I know there’s a proper name for them but you get the gist). I also love their veggie pizza with the avocado….yum yum yum
  14. Also, I LOVED the production show "On The Bayou" (I believe only Island has this show? And maybe Coral?)
  15. I have so many images in my head about this. Please do it. For research purposes.
  16. The other spot on the mobile app it should show is under profile (bottom right). If you click on that and scroll down, you should see “onboard packages “. If you still don’t see it, you might want to log out, make sure you have the latest app version (maybe seven delete and reinstall) and then relog back in!
  17. This is where you view in the app (scroll down on the Home Screen)
