We were a group of 6 friends and family. We enjoyed the warmth in all the Mexican Ports but it was very cool on the other days. We found lots of things to do that interested our group and our days were always full. This was a back to back for 2 couples in our group and we changed rooms. We packed everything into our suitcases except our clothing on hangers and the staff changed rooms for us. So very simple to do. We choose late dining as we enjoy having a group gathering at 4:00 then at 5:00 we went to a special Elite lounge and off to and evening show then dinner at 8:00. We tried anytime dining but we're not happy so we changed to late dining after the first day. It was simple to make this change but had we wanted early dining we heard that was hard to get as more people want early dinning. We enjoyed afternoon movies in the Princess Theatre but it was too cool for Movies under the Stars for us. We enjoyed Afternoon Tea on a couple of days and this was very nice with tea, scones, little sandwiches and small pastries. We did one shipboard tour that was wonderful. The staff on the ship were very happy and more than accommodating in answer to any questions or obtaining something you wanted. We dined in the buffet occasionally and there was always lots of choice and everything was fresh. We usually found a table then went to get our food, wait staff brought beverages and were quick to clean a table when we choose one that was just vacated. We of course had the occasional problem but if you act appropriately in a situation it will be corrected appropriately. We all love to cruise and it is a great time to relax and enjoy life. We will all cruise again.

Cabin Review

Oceanview
Cabin OC P315
We were not happy with this room we had booked a Guarantee Obstructed in the highest category and we upgraded to Oceanview. The room had two bunks that came down from the wall on either side of the room. Getting into bed you had to creep sideways along the bed being careful not to hit your head or shoulder on the bunk which extended a good 8 inches from the wall. We had a queen bed configuration and after I bumped my head very hard on the bunk we had the room changed into a twin configuration for the balance of the cruise. The staff was very accommodating with this change. This room had a noise issue. When we were traveling on open ocean there was this loud tapping like a rope hitting the side of the ship. This was right above our heads when we slept. It was not there when the seas were calm and the speed of the ship was slow. It was very annoying. I would not recommend this room.
