This was my second Princess cruise and husband's first. The cruise was from April 3-10, however, we flew in a day early and stayed a day later. This option is highly recommended if you can do it; isn't so rushed on either side. We ... Read more

Getting on the ship was a breeze. Our luggage showed up several hours later while we were exploring. I found this ship to be very hard to navigate. Several floors don't go through and not all elevators go to all the floors. The elevators ... Read more
