Default Sea princess overbook (sort of)

I was booked on the Sea Princess for tomorrow. It was the first leg (6 days) of a 21 day cruise. My TA called to say Princess had an offer of upgrading me to a mini-suite (and some nice OBC) on the Emerald sailing 5-9-10 if I wanted, which I gladly accepted. My guess is Princess had someone that wanted to book the entire 21 day itinary, and so my little 6 day piece was holding that up.

I've never been in a mini-suite or on the Emerald (but I heard it was a fab ship). Are the mini-suites much larger? Is there a seperate living room?
Also, has anyone sailed Mothers Day before? Wondering if there will be tons of kids.

Thanks for any info on the cabin or the ship

Congratulations on the switcheroo, and your ability to go with the flow...I have had mini suites ,but not on Princess, but really, what could be bad , right? Lucky you!

Default Ear Muffs

Worst case if wee folks are on board, the ship shops will sell you Ear Muffs or have a stiiff drink.

Enjoy the upgrade..

I'll congratulate you, too! The Princess mini's are wonderful! You have a bathtub with a shower and two TV's. There's a nice sitting area (the sofa also opens to be a bed if needed). One TV is "aimed" at the beds, the other at the sitting area. We think Princess has the BEST mini's on the sea !

JMHO ,

You are a big winner! My wife and I were in a mini-suite in March on the Emerald. The room is very large and the tub is a big plus! I was impressed enough to book a mini-suite on the Crown for next year.

I saw some pics online, the mini's look huge, now I can over pack and take a bubble!!! hahaha. The only down side is I was looking forward to seeing new islands, but ,they will be there for my next cruise

I think I could be addicted to mini's.......
