Never cruise over Thanksgiving
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Another disappointment was the food. It was nothing special and at times pretty bad. We always have to eat in the dining room due to the GF requirement so I can't address the buffet. The service was okay...there was nothing special or outstanding about this ship.
The day we boarded the first thing were notices were the stains on the carpeting in our stateroom...the ship needs a major overhaul. The public rooms seemed to have been updated More but the staterooms were not. Our dining mates were all first time cruisers on Princess and they too were complaining about the food.
After coming home we decided that we would always choose newer ships and we would not cruise over a holiday. We have a cruise booked on the new Royal Princess for Dec. 2014. Originally, we had booked over Thanksgiving week again but immediately changed our booking after this experience.
Princess...please start enforcing some rules of decorum or we will be changing our cruise line of preference. Less
Cabin review: BD Balcony
Obnoxious large family group totally surrounding us...shouting over balconies at 7 AM everyday...changing our "privacy please" doorknob sign to "please makeup room" which allowed our room steward to enter while we were eating breakfast in pj's....these were adults not children! Standing in hallway everynight and blocking the way...at least 15 adults. Perhaps cruise lines should put solo couples in one area and let the large groups stay together.Read All Balcony (BD) Reviews >>
