My wife searched for bargain cruises while we are wintering in Florida and this cruise to Jamaica was what we chose. You get what you pay for. We've sailed on other Princess ships and this one didn't compare. Here are the Pros and Cons: PROS - Cabin stewart was excellent - Ship was overall clean and in good repair - International Cafe was superb - Overall, the staff was friendly and accommodating - Food in all areas was acceptable - Nice having silverware on tables in buffet area - Sanitation was stressed by staff - Disembarking was very good - expedient - Walking deck for exercise was excellent CONS - Entertainment was sub-par; musical was performed at a high school level - no band - Art on walls throughout ship was low-end - Hardly any flowers throughout - Our server in dining room was overtaxed; Princess has cut back on restaurant staff too much - Embarkation was terrible; took excessively too long to board. - Shore excursion to the Falls was not well thought out
