Default Egg Crates on Mattresses

I read somewhere that you can request an egg crate to go on top of the mattress by faxing Princess. Is there a charge for this?

Yes, that's what they're called and there's no charge. We've always been very comfortable in the Princess beds, but we like a firm bed. If you're going to ask for an egg crate you need to ask your Room Steward for it as soon as you meet him/her. They do run out.

Just asked my steward on the Emerald last November as soon as I got on board. They're foam with indentations that look like you could put eggs in them - i.e. "egg crates" and bigger than chicken eggs ... I found them very comfortable.

my last bed n the Tahitian Princess was so bad I asked for a new one which they came up with a couple days into the trip.
They did not offer me an egg crate but I would expect there would be NO charge for it.

A fax won't work you have to wait until your onboard.
