I saw this dining option was available on the Grand Princess.. What is it exactly..

Do they have a mini-putt and lively poolside entertainment like on RCI ships?

It is a dining experience where you can get either breakfast or dinner delivered to your balcony. For a nominal fee.

What sucks is you used to get it for free in mini-suites and suites. Had a great Lobster dinner on the balcony on Caribbean before they figured one more way to charge for things...

How come you've gotten to go on so many cruises and I am starting 4/22....life is not fair?!?

I was going to do that Balcony Dining thingy but then wondered if they even bought you dinner! It said Champagne and smoked salmon canapes....$125 for THAT and I'd be tempted to skip it!

HOWEVER, I did think of my usual ploy-DIY! DO THEY HAVE MICROWAVES, BTW, IN OUR CABINS and if not, why not?

Hi Sk,

No microwaves, not sure why, but it's vacation who wants to cook. There is mini frig in the balcony and mini-suit cabins.

Enjoy Life & Cruising

No need for a microwave.....room service is 24/7 and it is included. Do remember to give the room service steward a buck or two.
