Relaxing cruise

Sail Date: December 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

We are a family of 5, with 3 older children (late teens, early twenties). We found that there were a lot of older passengers onboard, compared to prior cruises we have taken. Things that we particularly liked on this ship were: the food in the main dining room, the cabin steward, the movies under the stars (during the daytime we saw Elf, football, and Modern Family), the frozen drinks. On the negative side, it was often impossible to get an elevator. We walked up the stairs many times, many flights.

Plus, at the start of the week there was still a lot of concern about noro virus, so the breakfast experience was not wonderful. The food had to be served to you and there was often a wait and the food was cold. When the Purell machines didn't work the staff would push your hand up to it - which to me seems to defeat the purpose! We appreciated the precautions, but the Purell needs to be handled better. In the evening they had someone squirting it all over your hands wildly at More the dining room entrance. We were on Baha deck, center ship and our cabin vibrated a lot from some kind of ship mechanics.

We chose this ship due to the ports and had a great time. Tendering was quite organized and I was happy we were able to sit and wait in a dining room for our turn to get on the tender. At Roatan we were able to return to the ship for lunch.

Embarkation was easy and disembarkation was even easier. Less

Group excursion, not through Princess, to Goff's Caye. Best day of the cruise.

Cab to Royal Palms. Loved it.

Walked off the ship to the beach. Fun, relaxing day. Returned to the ship for lunch and went back out to the beach. Some of us took the chair lift for $12.
