  3. Ocean Princess
We cruised out of Fort Lauderdale heading towards Tahiti on this perfectly sized ship, if you love the pizzazz and excitement of a 4000+ passengership you may not like The Ocean Princess. She is due to be retired from the Princess Line in March 2016 so if you want your chance on her you better hurry. There were never any long waits for anything as the total passenger load is 680 tops. We were treated great by everybody in the crew. Food was great if you ate in the dinningroom or at the buffet and usally was the same menu. Pizza was served throughout the day and there was a cookie cart that sailed around the deck every afternoon around three, since this was our first Princess Cruise maybe this is a Princess tradition? A week into the cruise they started serving a new IPA beer called Sea Witch made for Princess Cruise Line and it was great for the Hop Heads out there. Any complaints I would have would be directed towards other passengers that are just rude i.e. walking into shows late and disturbing others and the show while doing, Ocean Princess' lounge is small and if you don't duck the spot light would be blocked by your head. I have seen other reviews talking about the ships wear and tear and would mention this too however the ship is 20 years old and to compare it to a new builds shiney everything dosn't float. The wood throughout Ocean Princess was reminiscent of long ago Ocean Liners with foux fireplaces and a great little library. There was a laundry onboard and don't miss the kitchen tour if they give it during your cruise.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BB 7111
Cabin was very easy to live in for 25 days, plenty of storage. The a/c and heat worked perfectly and if you hang something to dry over the fridge in the closet and closed the door it would be dry by morning.
