Destination: Western Caribbean
So our 7-day cruise was 6-days. We only made it to 1 of our scheduled ports-of-call. Our children did not receive any of the three excursions they had booked (they did however receive refunds). The rough seas made the first part of the cruise extremely bumpy and a number of people commented to us that this was the worst cruise (in terms of rough seas and high winds) they had experienced. Every time we missed our schedule, canceled a port-of-call or canceled excursions, the captain would apologize. However, at the end of the cruise, Princess never offered any good will gesture or any kind of compensation for a cruise that was a very big disappointment (albeit because of weather).
I left the ship feeling like Princess Cruises didn't care that the cruise was very rough, or that you didn't get the ports-of-call that you paid for or that one day was spent tied to the dock. You got a "cruise" and if it didn't meet your expectations (based on their advertisements) well...tough!
Many of the onboard aspects of the cruise were nice. The food was fine, the entertainment was good and the ship's staff were friendly and helpful. However, if you're going to book a cruise and all things are equal between Princess Cruises and another cruise line, I'd select the other cruise line. Less
Cabin review: A203
The bedroom walls had mirrors on front and back walls that made the room seem larger than it really was. You didn't feel so cramped! Nice touch!
Interesting Ports of Call
Rude and Unfriendly Staff
GREAT ITINERARY, BUT PRINCESS ...
