I have been on many cruises with different cruiselines, but never on a princess cruise before. Because of many excellent reviews Princess was on my bucket list so I was more than happy to book this cruise.
I booked a balcony and was upgraded to a minisuite, nice surprise.
At Istanbul I had a transfer organized by Princess; worked perfect. We arrived at the ship something around 1 pm, dropped of the luggage and went to the check in.
