Default Elite benefits

Hey, just a couple questions about Elite Member benefits if anyone knows the answers...

Has free internet been eliminated?

How do get priority tender tickets if you need them? Delivered to your cabin or pick up at purser’s desk?

Is the complimentary laundry/dry cleaning limited? For anyone sharing the cabin?

The internet is limited and is according to how long the cruise is. On a 7 day or less cruise you are allowed a $75 package that gives you 150 minutes. For a cruise 8 - 20 days, a $100 package that gives you 250 minutes. If the cruise is 21 days or more you get $200, which is 500 minutes. If both people in the cabin are elite they both get these packages. This does not apply to wireless internet if you have your own laptop. For that you pay 75 cents a minute.

If tender tickets are required they will be in your cabin along with a letter explaining the other percs for being "Elite". One of the other percs is you go to the wine tasting for free. I think they are now charging $12 for that. Tickets for that will also be in that letter you recieve.

The Laundry and dry cleaning is unlimitted and as far as I know it would be for all the people in the cabin. Never really had that come up because my wife will not let me cruise with anyone but her and she is also "Elite" (in everyway)

In addition to what Jim said, if you happen to be cruising with others (in one or more other rooms), you can get priority tender tickets for them with no problem so that you can be together getting off the ship. Just ask the Captain's Circle hostess during her regular office hours.

As far as the internet is concerned, I find that the allowed free time is ample for checking e-mail fairly regularly, hwich is all I ever want to do. It used to be unlimited, but I imagine that became impractical because of the relatively few people who would tie up terminals for hours on end.

About the Internet...

.. on my 9/2 Trans-Atlantic cruise on the Grand Princess (16 days), the minutes did apply on my laptop.

Great! Thank you all for the info. That was very helpful.

I will have my laptop just for email access a couple times a day due to some things at home that will require my attention. The packages are a little high but I will get one if I have to. Since I will have access to the complimentary laundry, I am going to pack considerably less than I normally would. The priority tender tickets will be a great advantage for my mother who will also be on this cruise; I just didn’t know how to get them.

Thanks again,

Glenn
