  1. Don't ask...they won't tell you. They'll insist "Horizon Court". Just check the last page of the Patter. IF the MDR is open for embarkation lunch, it will be listed there. The reason I say IF...it's not always open. Sometimes no MDR lunch due to a special function, ship coming back from Europe and has extra inspections or because they don't wanna do it. On our cruise last month, the Pacific P. was just coming back from Europe and the MDR was not open. For the following cruise (B2B), it was open.
  2. Even if you had "no upgrade" marked...Princess can and will change your cabin if they want it. So, if you marked "no upgrade", don't assume that's the end of it. Monitor frequently.
  3. BTW: if there are enough "kids" booked on the cruise, there is a kids club (sort of). On our first Pacific P. cruise there were around 10 or so children. Princess had 2 kids club ladies to watch over the young ones. They used the card room for their play room. Played games, took tours around the ship, went to the buffet for ice cream. It was nice to see them being escorted around instead of running wild with no supervision.
  4. OP: if you don't already know... Other ways to get OBC 1) if anyone in your cabin is a veteran or active/retired military...up to $250 depending on the length of the cruise (it's refundable as well). Just send in the required paperwork. 2) buy Carnival stock. Up to $250 OBC (not refundable ). OBC plus the quarterly dividends. 3) take lots of Princess cruises. Once you have 20 cruises under your belt, you'll get "loyalty" OBC starting at $25 but it goes up in increments. 4) watch the "sales", many add OBC as one of the perks.
  5. We've never paid for anything from the various menus (room service, etc.) We're Elite, so can get canapes for free on formal nights...tried them once...they're awful. Fruit/cheese plate?: go up to the buffet (and/or down to the International Cafe) and make your own. That way, you'll get what you want.
  6. Call Princess or TA (if using one).
  7. I totally agree. We had 4 coffee cards (2 unused) and the deadline for using them was before our next cruise. We gave them away. If they'd let us know before hand that we would get some kind of credit after the deadline we would have kept them.
  8. Another thought...if the mini accommodates 4 passengers, there will be a drop down bed from the ceiling. Might be more comfortable.
  9. yes. We have a cruise friend who has a suite as a solo. We're booked on the same cruise in an inside. She invited us to move to her suite. The TA has assured us we get the same price and benefits that our friend received when she booked. We're all going to share the cost, which is a great deal for her and even though we'll pay a little more than our original booking...we'll be in our first suite. Thanks, Renee
  10. Never been on the Sun, but minis have a tub/shower combo. The handicap cabins have a really big shower with no tub.
  11. There was a story about this on LA tv last night, but they made it sound like Super Shuttle was pulling out of LAX rather than closing shop. Wonder which is correct? EDIT: found the answer. The LA Times says "going out of business due to competition from Uber & Lyft".
  12. Hmmm. Maybe the rum is "made in China". Seems like everything else is made there.
  13. Used OBC many times in the casino. The T&Cs say "no", but it's never turned down.
  14. Easy to do. Click on the picture, it will turn dark blue. Backspace. It will be gone.
