We have been dealing with water damage from a rain storm and needed a quick getaway. We found this to be a relaxing trip. Not much to really see and do in Grand Turk, but a walk along the beach and some conch fritters at Jack's Shack fit the bill nicely. We relaxed so much doing what we wanted to when, that we never made it to the dining room. Skywalker's elite evening munchies were enough for us. We did the buffet or Intl Cafe the rest of the time, or morning room service. As always, we met many, many nice fellow cruisers from all over. Disembarktation a nightmare, poor planning on behalf of Border Security and Princess. Extra time to get off and VERY long customs lines, over an hour. Due to the lateness, our Ft Lauderdale tour w drop off in Miami was shortened, which was ok, as it began to rain and one of the sites over hyped anyway. Read Less

We cruised before with Royal Caribean twice, Celebrity and Holland America,it was our first and last with Princess. There is so many bad things about this cruise,but I will make a list: Good things: -A lot of staff at the buffet area and at the pool, we were never without help -The enviorement it is very casual, wich we liked -Restaurants are open all the time from 6:00a.m to midnight -Nice selection of movies all over the day and night, at night they serve a delicious popcorn -Some good music -Very friendly staff Bad things: -The ship is big but, the public areas are very small wich makes all places pack all the time -The bathrooms inside the cabins are ridiculous small, wich makes a shower very unconfortable (I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs...)my husband is 5'9" and 180 lbs....he use to go to the spa to shower... -The WC at the pool area were always very dirty -There are 5 restaurants for lunch,breakfast and dinner,but they look exactly the same,wich makes you feel you are all the time in the same place... -The food was horrible, but realy bad,did not taste too bad but had too much fat,a lot of grease,and the quality is horrible,not fresh,you could tell that was made many hours before or even a day before...and the presentation was worse...I felt sick on the first day of the cruise after lunch and could not eat for almost 3days... -Dinner time was a nighmare, terrible waiters,rude guys with only few good ones wich save 3 nights(We asked to repeat one of them), we felt we were at Mac Donald's,very bright lights,very loud waiters,you could see them throwing the rest of the food from other tables alway,they do it in front of you,wich was very disgusting,I could not believe what I saw...never saw it in a cruise. -We did not relax,I was crazy to go back home Read Less

We had never sailed on Princess before and when this cruise came up with a terrific price we decided to try them. Embarkation was well organized and we quickly were on board and ready for lunch. Our stateroom room was clean and standard for a balcony room. The bathroom had a very strong smell of mildew and the toilet was always dirty with a black ring around the water line. There was a refrigerator but it was never stocked with anything but water and we were told by our attendant that they never stock the fridges and we would have to call room service or leave our room and go to a bar to get drinks. Very inconvenient if you want a drink late at night. Our attendant kept our room clean and stocked with ice. Information on making reservations for our evening dining was confusing. We were told one thing on the phone and another in person. Eventually we got it straightened out and our dining experiences were okay but not memorable. Our waiters were very good and kept things moving along. Due to an allergic reaction to something in our first night dinner I had to buy some Benedryl in the convenience store and was shocked to see prices double what we would pay in a regular pharmacy. I understand making a profit but selling a $5.99 item for $12.99 was outrageous. The shows were entertaining but nothing wowed us. We selected Express Walk Off for disembarkation and were pleased that everything went very smoothly and we were off the boat and on our way before 8:30 AM. Read Less
