  1. My mistake. I was assuming this was a 2-step repositioning cruise (FLL to NY via random Caribbean islands, then NYC to Quebec). Not the case, I see. Jim
  2. Please note that premium balconies are simply location. Only "deluxe" balcony cabins have the loveseat. And they are only on Royal class ships. Jim
  3. That about sums it up for me. The only thing we liked was the entertainment. Jim
  4. We were on deck 12, one deck below the decks skynight warned about. I would agree decks 14 and 15 on starboard side present privacy issues, but 12 was fine with me. Jim
  5. Sounds to me like two cruises sold as one. In other words I think people will be embarking and disembarking, so I'd plan on Brooklyn. Jim
  6. From what I'm reading, I can't see any reason for any of you to have a beverage package. Jim
  7. On Regal earlier this month the steward had already filled the slot with his own filler card. We always tried to pull it when we went away for awhile, but we would return to find it plugged in again. Jim
  8. Last time I tried to book it we got there at 12 noon on embarkation day only to find out the entire 10-day cruise was booked up. I asked whether some of those bookings were from the previous cruise and was told no, they don't allow that. So go as soon as you possibly can with your fingers crossed. Jim
  9. Looks like a great cabin to me. I don't know whether you're pool people, but you're just steps from the adults only Terrace Pool. And I'd call $99 each for 10 days a real steal of an upsell. Jim
  10. Yes. My wife and I actually prefer the MDR French toast to what Sabatini's serves. MDR's is much thicker. Jim
  11. Actually very few Princess cabins have couches. Just Deluxe balconies, mini-suites and suites. Only exception I can think of is the Pacific Princess, smallest ship in the fleet, has a sofa in the standard balcony cabins. Jim
  12. I feel like a real amateur after seeing the other responses, but i like to ask for a Mexican omelet and see what that chef comes up with. Jim
  13. I've been on 17 Princess cruises, and I can count on zero hands the number of days I've ordered 7-8 alcoholic drinks. It's not that I don't like to have a few drinks. I do, but sea day or port day, there's a lot of stuff to do, and I don't want to spend the day zoned out in our cabin. So we'll book the occasional Sip & Sail promo for the fun and convenience of not having to think about the bill, but buying the beverage package for 70-some dollars a day just makes no sense to us. P.S.: Side note to OP. I note that you say you're picky about coffee. Probably the best you can do on board is the brewed coffee at the International Cafe, but even that won't compare with the stuff you can make at home. We got off the Regal on Saturday. I got up on Sunday and just could not believe what a great pot of coffee I'd made with bulk beans from Winco (discount grocery store on the West Coast). Jim
  14. Important note here: Room service is super busy the day you board. You might wind up on hold for a half hour trying to redeem your voucher. If you want cold beer when you board, go to a bar and get it. The only drawback to this is that you'll likely be charged a tax for whatever port you embark in. Jim
  15. In Brooklyn last week we just flashed our medallions on the way in. No need for paper. Jim
