We are platinum cruisers with Princess and this was the best cruise ship we have been on. We would definitely sail on her or the sister ship Regal again.We were on deck 9 Dolphin midship. The lack of midship stairs was never a problem. We could always get a lift or depending where we were going used the forward or aft stairs. The ship is gorgeous, quiet and smooth. Could not hear our neighbours at all. We had a Premium Deluxe balcony and it was perfect. The crew as always were friendly and helpful. Lisa the Cruise Director was always smiling and had so much energy. When we were not on the islands we were kept very busy with all the choices of activities. We got involved in many activities from, Zumba, Aerobics, Pop Choir, Flashmob, Dancing, Shows and just relaxing. The Piazza is the centre of activity. There we loved eating at the International cafe and Italian restaurant. We chose anytime dining in the Symphony Restaurant and loved our waiter so much that we dined at the same table, just the two of us. We saw several movies at Movies under the Stars. The Retreat Pool for Adults only was relaxing and is at the forward part of the ship. We visited the Eastern and Southern Caribbean islands and we had perfect sunny weather each day. Even though there were 3800 passengers it never felt crowded. There was always a deckchair or seat to be found. Crooners lounge had happy hour at 3pm each day and was a great place to meet new friends. All our excursions were from the ship which we do not usually do but we felt they were well priced and all really enjoyable. We hope to be back on board again one day.

Fabulous
