First cruise with Princess after using many, many other lines. Getting on wasn't bad, but getting off was a long, waiting nightmare. Theoretically there are people who will clear away unused deck chairs, but in four/five days we never ... Read more

Overall, we enjoyed the last minute 4 night cruise to Turks and Caicos, but there were some hiccups. Embarkation was flawless. Arrived at the pier at 1:30 and on the ship at 1:45. Disembarkation was a disaster... more later We chose ... Read more

We had a great time and will definitely sail Princess again. Princess is an excellent value, and really takes care of their loyal cruisers. But I have to say that the quality is slipping, particularly in the food department. Now, I ... Read more
