Let me start off by commanding the crew who fought through adversity and came out shining. Kudos to all who worked on this voyage of so many things wrong. We got into Ft. Lauderdale 3 days early to relax and do a little sightseeing - whoops - it rained most of the three days! But, we did have a great Valentine's dinner at the Old Heidelberg Inn close our Best Western hotel. The staff at this hotel desperately require training in customer relations at minimum. Actually, they should be fired! But that is another review on Trip Advisor. Embarkation was quick and actually running early. Got to our cabin (B755) at the back of the ship with a great stern view, nice balcony and just the right size of room for 2 weeks of togetherness. Then, on to explore a bit until our luggage arrived. Nice layout to public rooms, but some of the lounges appeared to be "add-ons" becoming part of the hallways. What happened top intimate Barrs? We did find one tucked away - the Explorers Lounge. This is where the trivia contests were conducted each evening which made for some entertaining evenings. Speaking of entertaining - the floor shows in the Princess Theatre were wonderful. Super talent on display with every musical. We did not take in the standup comedy shows (interfered with Trivia). We did not pack any formal wear so we ate at the buffet most days (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). Only had two breakfasts in the dining room and only three dinners on the non-formal days. Oh, and we tried Steamers as an add-on one evening when they had a two for one sale. Food - what a major disappointment since our last cruise (trans-panama) three years ago! We were served in the buffet, because there was an Norovirus outbreak on the previous sailing. You pointed to what you wanted and they put it on your plate. Hand washing before , after, and even during meal time. Enforced. Which is good and the staff did wonders. But the stuff they were serving up was not great. I have had better at a Chinese buffet at out local Chinese Restaurant in the town I live in - in the boonies of Canada. To order wine with your dinner was a task for the computer literate only. The Medallion app only worked some of the time. Twice we did not get the wine ordered and once we got charged but no wine showed up. To get coffee at any meal time you had to line up to have it served by crew. There were no floaters serving anything - they were all tied up in the buffet area. We got tired of shambling for coffee at breakfast on our third day out - we decided to have brekkie in the dining room. Fine, if you have an hour or so to have a simple meal. Service was super slow and not very attentive to your needs for coffee refill or any pastry or bun. The salmon served at breakfast was near raw and I ended up not eating more than two mouthfuls - c'mon folks - prepare food to guest standards - not some chef that is used to a spoonful of near raw salmon with little crackers. North Americans do not eat that way. Fish or sausages or bacon, eggs, toast, coffee (lots) and serve it up quick - not 45 minute waits. So that was a bust although we did try once more later in our cruise - same result - not to be tried again. Dinner was a long drawn out experience-- a good hour longer than breakfast. And again the food was not dining room quality. Except for one night we had steak and that was very good. So Princess got one out of three on dinners. None on breakfast. Steamers was just OK - a bit too greasy for my tastes. Also somewhat tasteless. At our second port my wife had an accident requiring 5 stitches at the ship's medical centre. That was traumatic enough but the shore excursion folks (on who's tour it happened) - were so sorry it happened they sent my wife a Stanley bear as a "get well" wish. But the medical centre charged us over $900 for 5 stitches. Still fighting with Princess Insurance on that one. After our stop in Curacao - we were supposed to go to Aruba - no way with the outbreak of Norovirus. So we headed back to Ft. Lauderdale a day early. Yes, they put us up at a nice resort (JW Marriott Turnbury Golf resort) but lunch for two (salad and a sandwich) hit $65. A bit out of my league. Too much drama for what was supposed to be a relaxing trip. Read Less

We have cruised with princess for the past 10 years. They are absolutely consistent with 4 star service. They are constantly upgrading and hands down they have the best entertainment from the big Vegas Style production shows to the single magic and comedy acts. The cabin rooms are white glove clean and anything we ask for, is delivered promptly to our room. The only shortcoming is some ships dining menus are not like they used to be. This particular cruise did not have an exciting menu but that's the executive chef. My specific bèef is that they dont have my favorite " Rice Pudding" Anyone who asks, we give Our last cruise was amid the corona virus and the measures the ship staff went to was over and above all expectations. We couldn't have had better care from our mothers at home ! We would gladly go back right now even when the corona virus is escalating across the globe. This pandemic was not created by cruise ships. Being on a ship in tgemiddle of an ocean is the safest place on earth. A ship is floating quarantine. Planes are moving virus carriers around the globe. Princess scores 12 out of 10. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we love the Caribbean islands. The stops were great, except Trinidad. We were there during Carnival and the streets were loud and violent - wouldn't choose that port again. Quick note about wipes, regular Clorox wipes won't kill Norovirus, but the hydorgen peroxide wipes do. We took a container on board and wiped our cabin a few times during the two weeks. I can't say enough good things about the crew. They worked so very hard cleaning the ship - they had their regular jobs to do, then spent another 2 hours a day cleaning. The railings, walls, carpets, everything in the cabin, touch screens, elevator buttons were all sanitized once an hour. The dancers and other entertainers scrubbed the theatre between shows - all the seats and folding tray tables - great job! The virus seemed to spread mostly because of a few selfish, arrogant passengers who refused to stay in their cabins for the required 3 days. Also, spouses were not quarantined which made no sense to me. They are sharing beds and bathrooms with ill passengers and were allowed to roam the ship freely. Because of my food allergy we ate mostly in the dining room and our cabin. The headwaiter, Ivan, was fabulous in taking my order and letting me choose anything off the menu. If you just ask, you can mix and match from the menu - this main course, that veggie and a different potato. The food was noticeably better than the previous January. We only ate in the buffet twice where staff were serving and there were long lines for everything. We found the entertainment excellent, but quite a bit too loud. We thoroughly enjoyed the piano bar many evenings. We did a mix of Princess and private excursions and all went well. We had a mini-suite and enjoyed the space and uncovered balcony. I love going out at night and enjoying the stars. I would much rather catch the sun on our balcony than on the noisy, crowded pool deck. That said, we found many quiet nooks on the upper decks to enjoy the view. The Medallions were just plain stupid! Hubby's worked fine, but mine didn't work at all. I went through two and finally just used an access card like before. It kept showing me off ship (?), wouldn't open the door, sent our drink order to the wrong lounge, charged the wrong price .... I didn't even try to set up the "find another cruiser" function. We were disappointed to miss Aruba, but Princess treated us very well -sent us to a lovely golf resort in Miami that had amazing food and great views. The line-ups and buses were a pain, but worked just fine. All in all, we had a mostly relaxing cruise. We met some lovely people, some of whom will be life-long friends.I'm glad we had a spacious cabin where we didn't worry about anything. Read Less
