  1. So you've never walked into a Bar or a Lounge and people have their head buried in a newspaper? or a book? What's the difference?
  2. It’s a special classification of cabins that has a separate roped off section of the dining room among other perks.
  3. But what I'm saying is you have to book Club Class to get anytime. Princess's site is very clear it only has traditional.
  4. Exactly this is being reported. They expect it to hit the leisure category pretty hard.
  5. I did not know they'd changed it, that's awesome. It's always been a deal breaker for us. I just did a mock booking though for June 2021 and there's only traditional dining. are you sure they're not referring to club class dining?
  6. something that I'm not sure has been brought up...Pacific Princess only has set dining for the MDR. There is no open dining unless you like the buffet or pay for the specialties.
  7. Our next two years major vacations are land trips.
  8. We boarded in Rome I think April 27th. We’d spent three nights in Positano beforehand. We had some pretty serious rain in Rhodes but the other days were good. We also hiked from Thira to Oia..great time to do it. Our Greek ports were Crete, Santorini, Mykonos, Rhodes & Athens. I don’t remember any rough seas.
  9. Already been. We had a fantastic day. We’ll split the month between Seville, Provence and Italy. I do want to return to the Italian Riviera area. Possibly Santa Margarita this time.
  10. See, that's exotic :) Very true, which to be honest is another turn off for me on the itinerary I was referencing. It has an overnight in Livorno...why the he** would I spend $2000 for two days in Livorno when I could either be in the Tuscan countryside or in Florence? Enjoy your cruise, it sounds wonderful
  11. I can't say whether they are or not "worth it" as I haven't sailed on them. But... I think you need to take itinerary into consideration. Are they worth $1,000 a day to go to run of the mill ports? not to me. But, you get some of the more exotic itineraries that are harder to get to and transportation between locations is more difficult, then probably yes. I don't think you can give a flat yes or no until you know where you're going. We're doing a month land trip to Europe next year for DH's retirement and am looking at adding in a cruise in the middle. Azamara has a Monte Carlo to Rome, 7 days, decent itinerary but not that hard to do on our own. I'll probably not opt to spend $900 a day on a balcony for something so easily done on our own. The but the more exotic itineraries, probably would.
  12. Read it's full label...it's the Silver as I said in my post. If you just order Mer Soleil, you're likely to get the regular.
  13. Only Mer Soleil Silver is unoaked. The regular has lots of Oak.
