  1. I found the pump bottle of body wash in the shower very awkward to use so I take an empty travel size bottle from Bath & Body and fill it up. Much easier to squirt on my mesh shower puff.
  2. We love their liquid soap. We always bring bar soap and a FLAT soap holder for both the sink and shower.
  3. I don't drink alcohol and hate blue cheese. When I had the onion soup I asked for black with white cheese; no problem. I definitely did NOT taste any alcohol.
  4. @KorimakoWe booked our transfers with Princess Southampton to LHR last year and again for our upcoming cruise.
  5. Our daughter travelled to France many years ago on a school trip. Her godmother had told her about having to pay to use a "pit" type toilet. When she returned home I asked her how the public washrooms were and her response was "I only went at the hotel or restaurant. No way was I paying to pee in a pit"!!!!!!
  6. I assume the little tourist train would still be an option. We saw people walking and it looked like quite a strenuous workout!
  7. Being fully vaccinated, wear masks, use our knuckles to press elevator buttons, washing hands frequently; every time we return to the cabin or before we enter the buffet. It's amazing to see the majority of passengers bypass the hand washing stations right outside the buffet even when an attendant is standing there!
  8. @BuckeyeMarkCheck out recommendations on TripAdvisor. Also, depending on when you are going to Bruges, Triënnale Brugge | A city-wide collaboration in 2024 (triennalebrugge.be).
  9. We're sailing on Caribbean Princess in May and booked a mini suite only for the couch since this ship doesn't have deluxe balcony cabins. I have mobility issues and am actually dreading the tub but, all things considered, it's a tradeoff I'll just have to accept.
  10. We actually like Slice better than Alfredo's.
  11. Deluxe Balcony - balcony cabin with a couch.
  12. After doing Norway/Iceland on the Sky Princess the people packing all the indoor areas was unbelievable, we could hardly get any seat in the buffet. We've booked a mini suite on Caribbean Princess for the same cruise because they don't have a DB. A couch and a little more space is a must for us for a cold weather trip.
  13. I agree with the Princess policy. We had the misfortune of a cabin of kids only next to us and it was hell.
  14. Iceland Everywhere is an excellent company and they tailor their tours to suit cruiseline schedules so check their website.
  15. We LOVE the look of the new menu; so many choices!
  16. You have the option to disable the locating feature on the Medallion so it still makes more sense to use the public address system rather than inconvenience all the other passengers. Sorry you had to put up with this.
  17. I'm shocked they didn't just ask "passenger so and so" or 'Passenger from cabin #?" to report to Guest Services. Seems like a very disorganized way to locate ONE passenger!
  18. I have never tried this but a lady sitting beside us on the last cruise ordered it. She asked me if I'd ever tried the frozen french toast and when I said no she said "well, I was going to offer you a slice of my James Beard French Toast but it's even worse than the frozen "crap". Each to their own I guess but I'll say it's not for me. 😂
  19. I'm thrilled with the breakfast menu. Sure beats my normal yogurt, Corn Flakes, O.J. with only a cooked breakfast once a week.😂
  20. I use a cane and standing is the worst thing for my knees. I did the same thing; once we arrived at the cruise terminal I sat on the first bench I found and my husband found someone who arranged for a wheelchair to come get me. There is a LOT of walking at the Vancouver cruise terminal so definitely ask for assistance.
  21. How sad to hear. It’s been many years since we were in T&C and it was so beautiful. Thanks for checking but they definitely won’t have kougan amann in the evening. We missed 3 ports in Iceland on Sky Princess due to 30 foot waves in the North Atlantic. Very disappointing but safety is the most important thing. We’re going to try again in June on Caribbean Princess. We were refunded the port taxes as well as a discount on a future cruise.
  22. @IndyKidSince you visit IC every morning, could you tell me if they have kouign amann pastries? I became addicted to them on Enchanted Princess and am so hoping Caribbean Princess will have them.
  23. We sailed out of Southampton and Athens using the Accessibility Line and it was wonderful. You are whisked away in a wheelchair through the entire process, including picking up your medallions.
  24. We get nothing from our TA except excellent service; that works for us. We would never book with a US agent since they aren't covered by TICO.
