We have booked a cruise on the new Diamond for March 27th. This will be our first cruise on Princess (we have cruised 3 other times all on Norweigan.) We have booked a Premium Suite and were wondering if there is a different area to be checked in as we are spoiled being members of the Capt's club on Norweigan.
Also do suite customers get any other special treatment.
Would also love to hear from anyone else going on this cruise. We will be taking our two kids ages 11 and 6.
My wife and I will be doing the inaugeral cruise on the Diamond on March 13th. My TA got us a bolcony on the front of the ship which is new to Princess (both Diamond and Sapphire). I will be glad to give you a review after our cruise.
Good to see you trying Princess. It is a wonderful cruise line. We have only done Princess and don't wish to try any other cruise line at this time because I may fall into the trap of trying to compare. We have absolutly loved the cruises we were on and the people were just great.
As for your questions;
Princess has done away with the butler perks for Premium suite but your room steward will go out of their way to get you whatever you need or desire.
You will have to check in with the rest of the passengers seeing how this is your first cruise with them. Platinum members get in a seperate check in line (5 or more cruises)
The regular line will take you no more than 1/2 hour to check in and be in your room.
Any other questions feel free to ask and I can e-mail you anything else.
