  1. Sometimes. I enjoy the trivia and sometimes there is a continuous one. If in conflict I attend the trivia.
  2. What is the current reasonable tip per bag? Have you ever traveled with others in the same car and only paid a tip for your own bag? I had a porter get upset until I clearly stated that the tip was just for my one bag and someone else will tip for the others.
  3. I am pretty sure that they clear all files after the cruise. There is probably no way to find a specific photo without you selecting it while on board.
  4. Can it be easily removed? What about socks? I am debating if I should have new underwear laundered on the ship.
  5. How does Princess mark your laundry? Is it an easily removable tag or do they just keep everything in a washable bag with an ID.
  6. Be sure to go to the roll call for your cruise. There you will find other members on your cruise and be able to coordinate any activities.
  7. My bank credit card pays me much more cash than the value of any Cruise Card. I just obtained the Princess credit card since it gives you $100 for use on a Princess cruise (payment or OBC) after you make your first charge. Other than that I will never use it again.
  8. You will love Princess. I sailed on Carnival twice and hated it. I usually travel with my sister and her husband and we are all 70 and above.
  9. As long as there is no promotion such a free OBC, paid gratuities, etc. you can usually ask for the lower price. If there was an attached promotion you may lose it. If they say a lower price is only for new reservations you can always cancel and rebook but you may lose your preferred cabin. The next step up from balcony cabin is a mini-suite.
  10. Is the Dine Line phone number still "D I N E". I want to make a Chefs Table reservation as soon as I board.
  11. Some ships now have brewed coffee at what was the ice cream stand on the Lido Deck.
  12. The closest thing is a lounge for platinum and elites for hors d'oeuvres before dinner with a few lower price drinks but nowhere a dollar.
  13. I have seen many including ones that generate the list based on criteria. Just do a web search for travel packing list.
  14. No one likes walkie-talkies. They disturb everyone. The messaging function at Princess@Sea uses the web browser and not an app. I do not believe there is a way for the browser to send notifications which makes it pretty useless unless you constantly check it. The new Medallion Class, once available, should work much better. The sticky note idea sounds good but is probably not must better than Princess@Sea since you must constantly check.
  15. It is an iBeacon that sells for about $15-$20. They probably get them for $5. https://www.amazon.com/Bluetooth-BLE-iBeacon-BC037-iBeacon-configure/dp/B07FC5FMHW/ref=pd_bxgy_147_img_2/145-9114187-2919219?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07FC5FMHW&pd_rd_r=40e79b04-7d19-4754-8660-6ca106113b45&pd_rd_w=OXfts&pd_rd_wg=RyMex&pf_rd_p=a2006322-0bc0-4db9-a08e-d168c18ce6f0&pf_rd_r=BKA0XEBGB47N5A5ES8RZ&psc=1&refRID=BKA0XEBGB47N5A5ES8RZ https://www.amazon.com/programmable-Battery-Bluetooth-eddystone-Technology/dp/B078N2B7RD/ref=sr_1_4?crid=16CJ42AIJ7LEG&keywords=ibeacon&qid=1566057082&s=gateway&sprefix=ibeaso%2Caps%2C225&sr=8-4
