Yes, it’s day 10, our last day, time to explore the ship further, and another Mexico cruise vlog entry. It has been an action packed cruise vacation so far.  If you missed any of the previous vlogs be sure to go back to day 1, and watch all of our cruise travel vlog. Like our previous sea day we didn’t have much planned for today.  We really just wanted to explore and enjoy everything Star Princess had to offer before disembarkation syndrome sets in.

Hi Cruisers, In this weeks vlog we look at the Princess Cruises Medallion. Of course, since Princess is part of Carnival Corporation you could call this the Carnival Ocean Medallion as well. Ocean Medallion is getting a lot of attention lately thanks in part to CES and the Medallion’s introduction by Carnival CEO Arnold Donald, but also partly because it’s just super cool.  Along with the medallion there’ll be a new Ocean Medallion Class – i.e. Princess Medallion level. We’ll do our best to explain this in the video.  We’ll also tell you how to get the Ocean medallion, and show you a few photos of the Ocean Medallion wrist band and Ocean Medallion necklace. We’ll try to get into the cool features like Ocean Compass as much as possible, but there is still a lot that needs to come out. So, when does the Ocean Medallion come out? They’ll start with the Regal Princess Ocean Medallion in November, then the Royal Princess Ocean Medallion in Jan 2018, and next it will be Caribbean Princess Ocean Medallion in March 2018.  We’ll update you as we hear things.

Hi Cruisers, In this week’s cruise vlog we take a look at tipping on a cruise.  Cruise ship tipping can be a bit confusing at first, so we’ll talk about the basics of how to tip on a cruise. We’ve talked about cruise tipping on other vlogs, so be sure to check out some of our other videos if you have more questions about what to tip on a cruise. We also answer a question about packing cubes for cruise. Are packing cubes for a cruise a good idea? In our opinion, yes! You can check them out on our packing cubes Amazon list. We are getting excited about the Norwegian Bliss coming in 2018. It’s going to be a great addition to the Norwegian Cruise line. We also answer another subscriber question about a Princess cruise in the Caribbean and things to do like a Belize excursion. And of course we have lots of cruise tips in this vlog.
