Sail Date: Jan 2015
Cabin: Balcony

Our cruise took in a wide sweep of the Caribbean with calls at Grand Cayman, Roatan, Cozumel, St Thomas , St Maarten and Princess Cays. Although we purchased the trip as one cruise, Princess treated at as two cruises as it sailed in and out of Lauderdale on the Middle weekend. This had positive and negative aspects which I will mention in the body of this review.

We made our own flight and hotel arrangements so our first interaction with Princess was at embarkation which was a breeze, so much so that it might be the easiest way of travelling to the USA in future! Ten minutes waiting in line compared to the good hour long experience at most airports!. Admittedly the process was a little slower re-embarking on the Middle weekend, but disembarkation at the end of the cruise was also slick.

Our cabin was on the Lido deck and was well appointed with a decent balcony large enough to sit and catch early morning and late afternoon sun and enjoy drinks and the few sunsets we got. Our cabin steward, Marian, was great, attending to the cabin most discreetly and providing us with useful tips throughout the cruise.
