The embarkation was simple and well done. We had an obstructed balcony but since it wasn't really hot we did not spend a lot of time on the balcony. We did sit out there in port. The obstruction was not horrible because the boat only covered part of the balcony. Loved the fact that we had a couch in the room. Great activities, great movies under the stars or in the theater and then finally available in your room, great food. Production shows could have been a lot better, not up to what I have seen on other ships. The enrichment speaker was not great...was more for corporate people and we were mostly retired. Good port lecturer. Fun casino and we actually won some that made it so we could play longer. Stayed a few extra days in Barcelona, all booked through Princess. They take very good care of you.

Lots to do!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Balcony (obstructed view)
Cabin DW E324
Great cabin...the sofa is something I value. The shower is larger than some of the other ships, which is nice.

The obstruction was not a problem because it only comes up part of the balcony...you can see over it.
