Haha, not bad! One small mistake: "maar" is a coordinating conjunction, not subordinating (just like "en", "of" and "want"). That means that the second clause has a normal word order and the verb is not moved to the back. Correct would be:

Het spijt me, Mario, maar de prinses is in een ander kasteel!

It's okay, I forgot my memes. It should start out with 'Dank je wel, Mario...'

How is "kasteel" pronounced? The "t" doesn't sound like an English "t".

Yes, it is; it is pronounced like the "t" in the English word "steel" or "stop." The IPA would be [käsˈteːɫ], with the stress on the second syllable
