We decided on this cruise because of the itinerary. The ports we stopped at were welcoming and beautiful. I wish the same could be said about our overall experience on the boat. The main problem was bad customer service throughout the ... Read more

Embarkation was a bit of a traffic jam but to be expected since everyone is anxious to get on board and enjoy the festivities of the ship. After an enjoyable lunch in the dining room (instead of the buffet) arrived at our room to discover ... Read more

My friend chose this cruise. I usually sail with Holland. The comparison is close, however, Princess did not have towel critters each night on our bed; did not have orchids on each dining table, and did not have elevators that reach every ... Read more

Room - very nice..adequate for us. Great huge TV with lots of on- demand movie selections. Small balcony but we rarely used it. Great large basin in bathroom but not enough storage. Guess we have too many toilet articles. Bedding felt ... Read more

Saw several islands (Antigua, St. Kitts) that we had not visited. One disappointment was the trip to the batik operation on Barbados...little more than paying to have someone take you to a store with stuff I was not interested in buying. ... Read more

Prior to this cruise on Princess we had recently cruised to Alaska on Celebrity Cruise Lines. The difference between Celebrity and Princess was like the difference between night and day. Celebrity won hands down. The Princess ship's ... Read more

This was our 23rd cruise (mostly on RCI) that includes 1 cruise on the Crown Princess about 10 years ago so we're Princess newbies really. I have to say that this cruise easily ranks as one of the best cruises we've ever been on. ... Read more

The best parts were the food and the entertainment. Between the International Cafe (open 24 hrs) and the many other places to eat, we always had a wide variety of well-prepared food. As far as the entertainment, there was always something ... Read more

Because this was our first cruise (we are seniors) we decided to do a short (6 night) cruise as a "test". The crew was very attentive, the food was good (not spectacular), our obstructed view cabin was an adequate size. We ... Read more

Treated ourselves to a suite and it was worth it. Our suite was in the front of the ship with a large deck and a huge window looking out over the front of the ship so the views were outstanding. The perks that come with a suite are very ... Read more
