Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2013

Pre cruise we stayed on the Grand Canal at the Hotel Santa Chiaria in Venice right off of Piazza Roma. This hotel is convenient to the airport bus drop off location (6 Euros per person for the airport bus) and also to the People Mover that you can take to the port for embarkation (1 Euro per person).

The ship was a delight. It is quite spacious with many public areas to lounge/linger in. There are activities that would please a variety of tastes. We enjoy the bingo (yes we were winners several times!), the dance classes, just wandering around the ship "people watching" and the shows in the theater. We thought the shows were great and there was a nice variety between production shows, comedians and musicians. We found all to be very entertaining.

To us, the most important Princess employees on the ship are our cabin steward and our main dining room waiters. These people were superb. We find the ship board employees of Princess to be one of their biggest assets. Everyone is so very helpful and will go out of their way to assist you.

Cabin Review

This is the typical balcony cabin on Princess when set up in a queen bed configuration. The bed was quite comfortable. The bath (no tub) and shower are a little "cozy". There is sufficient storage room in the cabin for us, and the closet is large enough for us to wash clothes at the self service laundry and dry them in the closet. The balcony is "close" on this deck (larger on the Caribe deck) but allows for breakfast on the balcony if you choose and great views of what's going on outside. Our large suitcases went under the bed quite nicely. Overall, this was a great home for 27 days for us!
