Default princess grill

We are booked on a princess grill accomodation to the carribean. Can anyone let us know if there is priority check in in this category. Also, concerning the Queens Grill lounge, is this for all grill passengers (as well as the jacuzzi on Deck 10).

Also is caviar available every night. Does anyone know if you can book your spa appointments beforehand?

We were in Princess Grill for 6/25 crossing. There is a separate check-in for Grill passengers. Yes, the Queens Grill Lounge is for Grill passengers only. Although we did not request caviar each evening, it was made available to us whenever we ordered it. Grill passengers will receive a package from Canyon Ranch prior to sailing, and I highly recommend you pre-book. I have posted a review on my website http://www.worldtravelquest.com if you'd like more information on PG accommodations.

Hello there:

1) Yes, there is a separate check-in line for QG and PG passengers.
American Express Platinum booked guests may also use this line
for any class, even Britannia.

2)Unlike QE2, the Queens Grill lounge is only for QG guests ( not for
PG unfortunately ). The same applies to the QG jacuzzi.

3)Caviar IS available in PG at all times, although it is most often
not on the menu - just ask for it. You can have it for breakfast,
lunch and dinner if you wish at no charge. You can order it
for room service but they will charge you.

5)You do not say when you are sailing, however, ALL grill guests
should receive a mailer several months prior to departure direct
from Canyon Ranch Spa. It will inform you of their services and
prices, and includes a 'special' telephone number for you to call
them direct to reserve an appointment. This is very convenient.

hope the above helps.

During our 6/25 crossing, the sign posted outside the Queens Grill Lounge stated "Queens and Princess Grill Guests Only". We were in PG and used the lounge every evening.

What exactly is the Queen's Grill Lounge? I haven't seen any photos of it in the brochures, etc., or even a real discussion about it. Is that where the afternoon tea is held for grill passengers?

I'd love to here about the Grill jacuzzi! Kind of conjures up a certain image . . .

My wife and I will be traveling "Princess " in a few months (we went Britannia a few months ago). It will be interesting to see if there's a substantial difference.

Hi Gabriel -

There is a short mention of Queens Grill Lounge in my review at [http://www.worldtravelquest.com]
along with more descriptions of PG accommodation. My husband made great use of this room while I was getting dressed for dinner (usually I was trying to do something with my hair - I loved QM2, my hair didn't). There is an afternoon tea in QG Lounge, but I used the Queen's Room for tea so can't give you any info on that. As far as the QG jacuzzi: there was a sign restricting use to QG passengers only.

i wish i could afford to travel pg and qg is just a pipe dream. i could have done with winning the lottery last night. 21million! oooh imagine. i know what you mean about hair, we did the caribbean and the first formal night i spent ages curling my hair into proper ringlets and by the time we had got from the cabin to the bar it had all dropped out and i have naturally curly hair!

Wouldn't 21 million pounds be about 40 million US? Keep playing that lottery! And I think the next time I sail I'll just get a crew cut, or a brush cut, or whatever it's called. However, there were plenty of bad hair days for everyone. It was a small price to pay, though, for spending time on the Promenade Deck and my wonderful balcony.

Regards,
Caroline

yep it's about that much, i couldn't imagine having that much cash! i think cutting all my hair off might be a good option. certainly better than never sailing on the QM2 again.
