Very good advice. We also wait and pick and choose our time and have never had to wait on any of our 13 Princess cruises.
We try to take quarters with us because the change machines in the laundry room seem to sense how far I will have to walk to get change for a few dollars and the odds of the change machine working when I need it, are inversely proportional to the length of the walk back to the purser' office to get change!!
