Hi, Have posted this question on other boards and don't seem to be getting any information. Question is...does anybody know firsthand if there are any perks left at all that come with either the grand suite or penthouse suite on the Grand Princess. Am most curious about the priority tender passes but curious about robes, snacks before dinner and bringing the evening dinner menu, the mini-bar...do they still stock it for the first time as a complementary perk and then charge for additional usage? Any information would be much appreciated as we are going on the Grand for a July 1st Western Caribbean cruise. Either way these items are not going to make or break our cruise. We've been looking forward to this since February and it was definately a long cold winter. Finally only 1 month to go and anxiously counting!!!
Thanks for any information,
Hi again, Linda. No, we didn't get the priority tender passes. Our cabin steward said it was something the butlers could get, but not the cabin stewards and since they don't have butlers anymore, we didn't get the passes. Don't know if they have straightened this out by now. We cruised 3 weeks ago in a suite.
Yes, you get the snacks before dinner. Didn't like them that much, but the gesture was appreciated. We never received the dining menu like we did last year before dinner. Again, I think it was because we were in a transitional period with the butlers just leaving.
Yes, you're right about stocking the mini-bar for the first time, free of charge.
The perks weren't what they should be, IMO, but the added cabin and balcony space and the beautiful marble bathroom, shower, and jacuzzi tub made up for it.
