We were four couples (mostly retired) who snagged a very good deal directly from the cruise line. The food was good and copious. We ate breakfast and dinner in the Coral Dining room and lunch in the buffet. There was always a large variety. The food was hot (surprising for a buffet). The dining room staff is not afraid to spice it up for the non-American selections, and so - yum, for the Asian and Caribbean dishes. The buffet area was always clean. There was always a staff member at the entrance to the eating areas to ensure that guests sanitized their hands There was one formal night. We (the men) wore trousers and open necked shirts. No one hassled us. Many guests wore suits, tuxedos and gowns. The public areas (including toilets) were very clean and up to date. The rooms had a slightly tired looking bathroom. We had a room on Baja deck (deck 11) with a balcony. There was adequate hanging space as well as shelves and drawers. The room was equipped with a mini - refrigerator, flat screen television, a safe, and two comfortable chairs on the balcony along with a table. There are high dividers between balconies, but NO canopy, so that one could look down upon one's neighbor below. The entertainment was professional and varied. We had two stops: one in Nassau and one at the Princess private beach on the island of Eleuthra. There is not too much to see and do in Nassau. The beach was soft white sand. There was a large buffet BBQ with a lot place to sit in the shade. One has to travel by tender to the beach - nevertheless, I noticed many wheelchair guests using the beach. There are a couple of shops, lots of loungers ( both in full sun and others under open shelters). Debarkation was accomplished in twenty minutes as we were "walk-offs" ie carry our luggage. We would cruise Princess again.
