We boarded the ship in San Juan and had no trouble at all, speedy boarding, and unlike some other reviews I have read about San Juan we never encountered any rude people..
Our first Princess cruise was on the Ruby when it was brand new, so we were slightly disappointed when we first got on the ship. Nothing wrong with it, just not new.
Our room location was excellent, 14th floor mid-ship! Excellent location for access to pool and buffet.
We found the dinners in the dining room to be O.K., only had dinner at buffet once and that was also just OK.. I don't usually eat breakfast, but really liked the breakfast buffet.
Comedians were very funny!! Hypnotist was very good too..
What was nice about going this time of year was that there weren't that many children..
There was absolutely NO nightlife on this cruise, I don't if everyone was exhausted from having a port almost everyday or there just weren't any people that like to party!
I think next time we will try another cruise line just to have something to compare it to.. We had a great time, but it was exactly the same ship..
