We had some rocky weather, which of course was not Princess's fault, but we still made it to Princess Cays. Embarkation and debarkation was literally walk on and walk off. Staff was consistently great and service impeccable. It seems Princess has scaled back a bit some of the "luxury" features, and perhaps the food is not as high-end as it used to be, but it is a well-run line with well-trained staff. The captain and executive staff came to our Meet & Greet, which was nice. The ship looked great -- very clean well taken care of. The shows were standard (read: bad) amateur-hour shows. We saw Landon Swank for the second time, and the show was pretty much the same as the last time. He puts on a good show. The comedian Troy Thirdgill had the place in stiches. He was very funny and definitely the best, most professional part of the entertainment. Bert Stratton was, well, "Bert WITH AN 'E'"! What can you say? You either love him or you hate him. I thought he was entertaining. He is definitely different. And a real talented piano player and performer. The ship was pretty empty. We heard there they were 1,000 passengers short of being full. That made it real easy to find seats, room in the pool and hot tubs, etc. We also got a nice upgrade on our cabin and a generous onboard credit allowance. All in all, it was a great experience and we will definitely be back sailing with Princess soon.
A little on the small side, but a nice sized balcony and a great location near the middle of the ship. One of the best cabins on the ship.
We really enjoyed it. It was an overcast day, but the snorkeling was good. It is a great spot for beginner snorklers, since the reef is very close to shore. We walked a while along the shoreline. It is pristine once you get past the crowds. We collected a lot of shells and sea biscuits (like sand dollars). The lunch was standard bar-b-que, which is not our cup of tea, but it was nice to have it all there. The facilities (bathroom, etc.) are nice.
