We are going on the Christmas Cruise to Mexico on the Sun Princess. Does anyone know if the internet area has "plug-ins" for portable computers? We want to keep in touch with family and business. My husband is more comfortable using his own computer.
Has anyone taken advantage of the "platinum" benefits offered by Princess? That portion of the site is "temporairily down?
Since the "Platnum" benefits only started on Sept 1, it's too early for anyone to report on what they got. We've been on Sun, Sea, and Grand Princess and there isn't a way to plug in your laptop (it would have to be reconfigured to work on the ships network anyway). You can either use the regular PC's at the business center, or the Pursers desk may have laptops to use in the atrium area. There have been charges for each. The announcement abou the "platnum" benefits does say there's times and limitations per ship, so until someone gets back we won't know what those are.
If one gets a magnifying glass out and looks at the Panama Canal brochure for the Coral Princess, they will see an Internet Cafe in the center of the Emerald deck. I don't know if the Sun class ships have added anything like that though.
Upon completion of your 5th cruise you become a Platinum Member.
