This was our 19th Princess cruise, and our shortest cruise ever. We booked it as a quick getaway, not expecting much. We were a bit apprehensive after reading a lot of negative reviews of this ship. Embarkation was stellar. Princess ... Read more

We did not explore Ft. Lauderdale before we embarked. We have lived there, so no need to tour around. The only real negative was that there was a huge line for embarkation. It was probably the worst in all of our cruises. We flew in to ... Read more

We chose that cruise line because they had best islands and stops. We did not want to sail to Mexico and this was one of a few cruises that had many stops and the price was somewhat affordable. Our housekeeper "Speedy ... Read more

I had never cruised Princess before and wanted to give it a try. I probably won't go this route again, unless it's a VERY good deal. The food was very good most of the time in the dining room. Desserts were very good. Wait service was ... Read more

We picked this cruise rather than the Eastern Caribbean cruise because the online itinerary showed a stop in Jamaica. However, after downloading our documents, they showed stopping at Costa Maya instead of Jamaica....very disappointing. ... Read more
