    Princess tried that(room service fees) last year without telling anyone and that caused major upset and got withdrawn.
    Apparently they are testing the new RS charges at 2 different price points on 2 ships ex NYC for 2 weeks.

      And how do they propose to deal with the false advertising claims/potential prosecutions which follow from this? Room Service is clearly advertised as being complimentary between 5am and midnight.

      I have seen that it is a test - I bet the several thousand guinea pigs on Breakaway and Getaway are chuffed to bits about it.

        I am with you on this.

        Unfortunately I have no knowledge of US consumer law on this. However I know I would have fun with this one. I'd love to know if there are any lawyers on the passenger list.

          Hi Steve
          They advertised smoking as being allowed on balconies,,even in certain lounges.
          Then banned it with almost no notice.
          They wouldn't,t even let people cancel (who had booked on the strength of being allowed a fag on the balcony),saying it wasn't a major change.

            Is maybe the difference this time they are using certain passengers as guinea pigs for extra charges without notice??

              JC - I am a smoker and was disappointed that they banned it on balconies. They gave enough advance notice (c3 months) for US cruisers to cancel without penalty (no good for us UK saps though).

              There never was any indoor lounge in which you could smoke (except for the cigar bar and the casino). When they closed the outside due to rough weather at Christmas the cigar bar got a bit crowded (Great crack in there though!). However, with 40 knot winds and virtually no-one outside I had no qualms grabbing a quick drag on my balcony.

                I'll bet there are! I reckon the queues of unhappy punters at Guest Services will probably break records as well.
