According to the priority slip we got, palace guests can start boarding at 1.30pm. So if you factor in about an hour for the pre-boarding activities, you can arrive at about 12.30pm to maximize your time on the ship 😬

Have also booked for palace but didn't notice any priority slip? Did you receive some instructions after the online check in?

We arrived at about 2pm. Though carpark indicated full, the 2 nice abangs let us in after checking if we are going for cruise. There were still a few lots on L2.

Slip, or rather sticker, was given at point of health declaration before registration. That’s for priority for check-in. There will be a palace counter at the entrance for check-in at L2 of main building after your test is done at L3 of carpark. A staff will bring you to baggage screening, then then a cordoned off area with refreshments and drinks to wait in while they process your check-in. Once the cards are ready, they will bring you to the auto gates for passport screening. They don’t issue the mice pods anymore, so bring your TraceTogether tokens or app on phone. Many points of TT check-in. They will disinfect your luggage exterior at start of gangway to ship. Then just proceed to ship and enjoy yourselves!

woo sweet. appreciate the detailed information. So there's a possibility we can be boarded before 2pm if you are early enough.

Any idea if we'll be able to access the specialty restaurants once we're onboard? a late lunch maybe.

Yes, can. I had late lunch at umi uma taking the jap bento. My butler encouraged us to go to specialty restaurant as palace restaurant was full.

Apparently is it they reserved the seats for the Genting club guests?

I wasnt quite pleased as they can reserve in advance but not necessarily Palace. But I can see why they are better valued though since they board the ship more often.

I went on last weekends cruise.

They converted half of the Lido to halal food, and generally issued tables to non-muslims at the other far half of the Lido. Have to walk to and from very far.:(

No idea but it could be this round the palace was pretty much max occupancy. The butlers were quite harassed and mine took quite some time to respond to me and just left us alone half the time. My butler did say if I want to reserve specific timings at the palace restaurant, she can help us do so. So I guess any palace guest can make reservation in advance if we want. Though I had no issue getting seat at any time last evening and today so far without reservation.

Just returned for the 1st time from 2N cruise over the weekend in Palace. Following information might be useful to 1st time Palace passengers:

1. You can definitely go earlier than test timing given (I arrive at 2:30pm and given timing was 4:45pm). There are seats at level 3 testing area for Palace guest, and the queue moves very fast. We were onboard by 3:30pm with longest wait for ART results (30mins).

2. Call your butler as soon as you reach your cabin. Their number is given on a card located near the telephone.

3. The all-you-can drink privilege for Palace guest that's booked BEFORE 28th Feb is still valid. Our butler collected all our sail passes during her visit to our cabin, and put the deluxe drinks package stickers on each of them. She explained that those who purchased after 28th Feb, will need to follow the new privileges as indicated in T&Cs (no all-you-can drink, except happy hour).

4. Very important to have an idea what you want shows you wish to see, as well as what you would like to eat. The butler will help you make all the bookings in advance during first visit to your cabin, as well as indicate if you've any dietary issues/requirement/allergies.

5. After point 4 is completed, I would recommend making all the pool bookings for next day.

There were many positives & good memories during this trip, but there were a few negatives as well. However in nett total the positives outweigh the negatives, so this cruise goes into my books as a great one.

Btw for the drinks package, I would suggest to skip it and go for the drinks promo onboard (i.e. buy beer and wine at deck 6). Unfortunately it takes quite a while for drinks to arrive, when ordering at any of the specialty restaurants. Umi Uma took the longest (around 25~30mins) and Silk Road the fastest (around 10~15mins). At Mark Best the staff even told me to order a few at a time :s13: to avoid waiting too long.

Glad that you enjoy it...

For those making palace pool or facilities bookings try to do it on day 1 at deck 17 counter.
