My wife and I and 8 friends just returned from an 8 night cruise aboard the Caribbean Princess with port stops at Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. This ship and Princess cruise lines has both good and not-so-good features and service levels...

EMBARKATION

This was our third cruise. On both Disney and Royal Caribbean, passenger cards and ID photos are handled at the same check-in location inside the port terminal. The procedure at Princess is antiquated. While the passenger card is issued in the port terminal, the ID photo is taken by security personnel at the time of initial boarding on the ship. This process caused additional lines and slowed the boarding process. Further, the security person taking my photo did not operate the photo device properly which caused further delays for me as well as fellow passengers waiting behind me.
