Not Sick - thank you Princess but disappointed
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Okay now the disappointing part... We finally decided on a mini-suite with hopes of an upgrade (guaranty). Did not get upgrade but is always a gamble and we did end up on the losing side of that gamble More but no biggie. Our suite was nice, loved the large balcony - although as read before leaving, make sure you are dressed on the balcony as all above can see you - again no issue was warned ahead of time. Here is where the thousands of dollars where a very sad disappointment.
On Princess, they charge you 12 per person per day for tips for the employees. Soo.... the price of the cruise does go up about 400.00 for the tips. No problem BUT the employees do no longer need to be nice or provide any service since they have already hit my credit card on a daily basis. No hello's in the morning, no ice, no water, no robes, no fruit - after 3 days had to ask for more shampoo, conditioner and bath soap. Pretty sad on a mini-suite. Our Bedding also was stained but again, we are on vacation.
All in all a fun VERY Expensive week and due to the service in our suite and the specialty restaurant in which I am not going to further issue comments - we will not be back to Princess. I hate to say that even under the same huge corporate umbrella, Carnival (Plat Member) has better service, food and rooms than Princess. Less
