Left the car at "Park n Go", easy and cheap, they valet park it but we have used them before and had no problem. They get you to the ship quickly and are usually waiting when you get back. Got there at 12 noon and walked right on. We ate in the Horizon buffet so we could get to the early shows and we were a little disappointed with the buffet, food was good and the service was great but not the selection as on the larger Princess ships. Ate at anytime dining once and it was very good but we missed the early show.

Production shows were really good as was all the entertainment. Great Promenade deck 7, wide and not very windy, good for reading and snoosing. As usual the pizza and ice cream were super. We had a obstructed ocean view and the room was great except the shower was reaaally small but ok. We are used to the larger ships and found this a little too small compared to another cruise lines 90,000 ton ships.

Limon does not have good port shopping except right on the dock, save your steps or take a tour. Food and Theater are both in the front of the ship. Overall a good Cruise and up to Princess standards. Lastly, most doors you have to open by hand, but talking to someone with a jassy, they said easy to get around.
