  1. I found it was not a pleasant smell to walk by.
  2. Just giving more hotels in the area. I have stayed at Premier Inn Westminster (4x) and Park Plaza Westminster (1x) and prefer Premier Inn Westminster as I just use the hotel to sleep. The hotels are a short block apart.
  3. I think Princess should have put the Bristo and Sushi restaurants on deck 7 in a glassed off area like the other paid restaurants. People were walking by the tables to get to the theater and the smell from the fish.
  4. I have 4x at Premier Inn Westminster. It’s has a/c, bar, restaurant, close to Big Ben .Westminster Abbey, Parliament, London Eye, Thamas river, tube, regular bus, HOHO, restaurants/pubs, Waterloo train station. Premier Inn County Hall, is a block away from Premier Inn Westminster, with no a/c and a few steps up to the front door. Park Plaza Westminster and Park Plaza County Hall are in the same area.
  5. Thanks for the heads up for this sale. My 3 cruises are listed. My March 2021 already has beverage and tips for 1 & 2 and coffee and soda for 3. I would normally purchase WiFi for the granddaughter so would save a few $. My 2 August 2021cruises have no perks attached to them so would benefits from this sale. I wonder if you did not want the beverage package, if you can get OBC instead?
  6. I have used www.justairports.com, a car service from LHR to/from our London hotel many times. Use your hotel’s postal code to get a quote per car. After an overnight flight it is nice to be met at the exit area and be driven direct to the hotel.
  7. On other ships, the photos are all lined up and you find your photo and take it to the photo desk. On the Sky, there are many computers in the Photo area, You log in with your Medallion. The computer would do face recognition from your boarding picture. All your pictures will show up. Our pictures did not show up so a Photo crew member helped and he placed our order. We were told to return the next day after 6pm. We were on Sky’s first cruise, there was a few glitches with the computers and the second last day everyone was trying to get their pictures and there were long lines.
  8. Check out www.internationalfriends.co.uk under Shore Excursions. They only go on embankment/disembarkment days. I have used them from Dover and Southampton. They pick you up at dock, tour then they drive you to your London hotel or LHR or LHR hotel.
  9. I stay at Best Western Oceanside, 1180 Sea Breeze, FLL. It is 100 yds from the ocean, free hot breakfast, bar that sells food, Sun Trolley, regular bus outside the door, water taxi within walking distance, washer/dryer $, rental bikes $, no shuttle service, they use a 3rd party shuttle to FLL port (ask at check in). We take Sun Trolley, regular bus or walk to restaurants along the oceanfront.
  10. We are 2 adults and a 10yr staying at the Hampton Inn Brickell-Downtown in August. We will be taking a taxi from airport to the hotel. Roughly what would the cost be? How do you get to the port? Taxi - cost? Or do you reserve their shuttle - cost?
  11. On the Sky, they use face recognition on the computer. No picture is printed unless you order one.
  12. We are 73 days out for our Feb 10 cruise. I can do check in. It shows luggage tag pending. When are luggage tags released to print?
  13. They refund how you purchase - bought with OBC, refund OBC, bought with credit card, refund on credit card.
  14. Any discounts on beverage packages?
