Default "Free requests?

I was filling out my pre-cruise paperwork online. I saw the area to sign up for fresh fruit in the stateroom and also a robe. This was never available on NCL (without paying for the robe, and to keep it). Have any of you done thison Princess?

Also...I checked off that our group would be celebrating an event: anniversary and college graduation. Anyone know what they do? Decorate door, cake?

Princess doesn't charge for the fresh fruit in your stateroom, or for the use of the bath robe. You may need to remind your cabin steward and he/she will be happy to accommodate your wishes. On our last two cruises, the bath robes weren't available the day of sail away, as the laundry staff were busy laundrying them from the previous cruise pax.

As for the celebrations, just enter the date(s) you'd like to celebrate and your cabin steward will tape a "Happy Anniversary" sign on your stateroom room, along with a balloon or two. If you opted for traditional dining, your wait staff will present you with a small anniversary cake (yum-o) and serenade you and your spouse. I'm not sure how they celebrate a college graduation. You'll have to post a reply to this board when you return from your cruise to let us know.

Congrats on your celebrations and enjoy your cruise!

Filling out the form and requesting your preferences is no guaranty that you'll automatically receive the requested items. Most likely, you will have to request them again from your cabin attendant when you arrive. Make sure your special celebrations are listed in the cruise personalizer - that will increase your chances of them remembering. If not, let Princess (or TA) know so they can add it on. Again, that's no guaranty that the cake or balloons will appear. Just mention it to your cabin attendant, and they will be glad to provide them.

They always provide a card to select the type of fruit you want but we just take exactly what we need from the Horizon. This way nothing goes to waste.
