Princess Captain's Circle Cocktail Party

I've sailed with Princess 4 times but never indulged on the invitation to attend the Princess Captain's Circle Cocktail Party.

Does anyone know what goes on here besides meeting the captain and drinking cocktails?

You really haven't missed anything. The wine is apt to be old and/or rough and the "hot" hors devours cold. It's primarily a PR thing.

All that being said, go to 1 just to see for yourselves. Maybe you'll meet someone.

about the drinks...
ask for what you want :))

you guys are playing this wrong. Although I can drink the Champagne, Einstein always asks for his favorite brand of vodka and OJ or pineapple juice.

Sometimes I ask for a single malt...
HI Gang,

We have sailed 23 times with Princess and have not attended a Captain's Party in years. Not really sure why, but I think we just got bored with them.

Just returned to the group, was here several years ago and drifted away. But, I still have a Cruise@dicts shirt in the closet.

We find the only entertaining thing about this party is seeing who are the most traveled passengers are on the ship. Sometimes it can be quite interesting.

Funny, Princess is the only line I've been on that does that - announces the names of the people with the most cruises and gives them chotskis.

It was...surreal.:yawn:

Hey, did I happen to mention Princess still does the baked alaska parade, only now they use battery operated candles on top? THAT was really surreal...:cool:

I waited the entire "party" to get a waiter for ANY drink...never happened. I was hoping they would pass out decent appetizers...I was sooo hungry....LOL

We have gone to the parties as it's just like a having a pre dinner drink any other evening. We meet up with who we are having dinner with, listen to the little speech or presentation and just have a drink or two. If we have something else to do we miss it.
