    Mcc got a reaction from Morio in Is on board credit as attractive as it once was?   
    We always find it a problem to use up on board credit as firstly we are non drinkers, secondly the offerings in on board shops are not to our taste. We are not spa enthusiasts, nor foidies sinspeciality restsurants are a waste of time and we dislike organized excursions as we have done over 100 cruise and seen everything we have wanted to. We just enjoy cruising in the sun and seeing different places everyday. On a recent 12 day cruise we had $400 each obc so once again, family members got new watches courtesy of the cruiseline.
    i would much prefer a reduction in price.

    Cost us £7 in June. Too far to walk as once the dock gates are reached it is a long roundabout route to the ship even though you can see it almost in front of you.

    Mcc got a reaction from Little Mermaid in Saver Fare - Dining Allocation   
    We went on Oceana last year on a Saver fare. We were allocated second sitting so we went to Maitre d' on boarding and said he could allocate the table to someone else as second sitting was late for us and we woukd use the buffet instead to eat earlier. He asked us what dining arrangements we woukd like - first sitting or Freedom and we chose first sitting. There were plenty of tables that were not used at all during our two week cruise on first sitting. Another cruiser we met had changed to Freedom dinibg with no problem either.

    Mcc got a reaction from Nick in Allocated embarkation times...   
    We arrived early (11.45 ) for a Caribbean Princess cruise departing the Mayflower terminal last month having been given an embarkation time of 14:30. We were embarked straight away and having carried on our own luggage, had unpacked and were in the buffet by 12:15.

    Mcc got a reaction from Squiffy on Port in Tables For 2   
    It annoys me when having been allocated a table for 6 in the main dining room that there are consistently completely empty tables all cruise or some only partly occupied. This happened to us on our recent Oceana cruise and unfortunately for us our table was fully occupied all cruise whilst others around us were completely empty. It is extremely frustrating as I would never choose to share a table with strangers in a restaurant.

    Mcc reacted to David in Tables For 2   
    There seems to be an assumption that privacy is the only reason for a table for 2. My wife and I don't like to sit around for a long time and since the meal proceeds at the speed of the slowest we have often spent over 2 hours on a meal when we have other things that we want to do.

    I am a regular cruiser and I am booked on Royal Princess for the Christmas cruise and after watching the programme, I wish I wasn't! I just hope its the usual TV "set up" scenes. I don't think the programme will do anything to encourage people to go on Princess.
