We took this cruise as we had not been to the islands in over 35 years so another trip was needed.The ship is in good condition even allowing for its age,a bit of wear and tear hear and their but after 2o plus years in the sea,Food was good and the service 1st class,Princess staff are awesome, the cruise director was a good chap with an English background,always taking a good humored dig at us Aussies and himself.Had no issues to speak of although the ugle head of Noviris surfaced on the second day,came on board with a passenger,The Captain and crew where right on to it,so the crew had to serve every thing but that is no problem,the bug was about in Brisbane when we got on so that is a risk .Did not get in the way of a good time and only caused problems with those unlucky to have came in contact with the virus.Ports where all good and the sea conditions where perfect.One day the water was like glass all day ,best i have ever seen,all round fun time was had especial when hitting the topside Riviera bar under the stewardship of Mr Ron (Burgundy) from the Philippines,very funny along with Atomic Albert,great team of people, The Chef being Italian had a good influence on certain dishes that i would all ways pick and was spot on,The Captain was a very good communicator and we where kept informed with the issues ,also he could be seen quiet often out and about looking and checking things out.Needless to say we took advantage of the future cruise deposit and booked another Princess cruise
Cabin was clean and ample room for us.We have been on the sister ships of the sun and where happy with our room,i am a big chap and i find no problems with the bathroom.As usual the room steward Larry was first class.
We live across the river from the cruise terminal so its our town,no need for a review
Great spot for swimming and snorkeling,or just walk around the island ,a few local come across to sell their wares,this is an uninhabited island
Got to do the Hop on Hop of bus for 10 dollars
Great shopping and markets, cheapest grog going
When,t out and about with a local taxi ,good value and took us to the main go to spots
The sea crab cooked on the beach was a winner for 20 dollars,its like a paradise,would go their any time
