First & probably last Princess Cruise. Ship was dirty, veranda was gritty and "glass" sides were filthy, never washed. Our stateroom attendant was friendly and attentive. He kept our room clean, but it was old and in ... Read more

Friends (all of us in our late 50s) had chosen this cruise and itinerary as a way to get a group of old high school friends together on a vacation. Embarkation was held up a little due to a US Coast guard inspection. I assume this ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the ports were different from other Caribbean cruises we have taken. Embarkation was a bit busy but the process was very smooth and did not take long. Disembarkation was the smoothest I have ever experienced. ... Read more

Friends wanted to visit us in FL and then go on a cruise to celebrate their anniversary. They picked this cruise since they had never been to Roatan. Unfortunately, about 4 hours after leaving Ft. Lauderdale, the ship had to turn around ... Read more

We left Sunday afternoon and headed to Roatan (after a day at sea), but there was a medical emergency and we had to head back to Miami after sailing for about 5 hours. The captain told us a fellow passenger had become critically ill and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary to the ABC islands. We have always cruised with Princess and this cruise did not disappoint! Our balcony stateroom on the Lido deck was convenient and comfortable. Our room steward Roberto did ... Read more

We had never been to the ABC islands but mainly chose this trip because it had 4 sea days. We're both active but in our 60's, so we enjoy just relaxing on the ship more than doing much in the ports. I was a little worried after reading ... Read more

I chose Princess for two reasons - I had never cruised with this line before and the itinerary was what I wanted. - Roatan and Belize especially. I've cruised with Royal Caribbean in the past and enjoyed it. Last September I cruised ... Read more

I know the ship is going into dry dock, so I expected the worse. Boy was I wrong. It was a great cruise. The ship looks amazing. The carpets throughout the ship look new, the greens where you play golf looked like we were the first to ... Read more

Embarking went very smooth. We got right into our room and meet Rolando. He did a great job. The ships layout is not the best. A lot of floors do not go all the way around. There was a lot of vibration as we sailed, almost like a shaft was ... Read more

This cruise was selected by group consensus primarily based on port locations and cost. As I never had been on a Princess Cruise, we did not know what to really expect. I have been on other cruises with Carnival (Tropicale, Liberty), ... Read more
