My husband's heritage is Scottish so this itinerary appealed to us. It is a bit port intensive so it is easy to get tired as some of the days could be quite long & many of the tours involved a lot of walking. But the ports were great, we had terrific tours (for the most part), & the scenery was beautiful. We learned a lot & met some terrific people. There were some downsides. The staff was not as friendly as we have come to expect from Princess, unfortunately. We found the Salty Dog to be incredibly slow when it came to service. The Crown Grill was exceptional, both as to service & the quality of the food. We loved Vines & the quality of the wines as well as the service of Laurentiis & Viviane. And our favorite waiters, zIvan & Svetlana in Island dining room were amazing & treated us as though we were guests in their home. We loved our stateroom & our stateroom steward Jose. The bed was amazingly comfortable. We found the maitre d in Island dining room to be rude, overbearing, & condescending & generally unwilling to work with us when it came to seating. Overall, the cruise itinerary exceeded our expectations & I would recommend it.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BA C742
It is near the back sharing only one wall with another cabin so it is very quiet. It has a larger balcony than any of the others on Caribe deck.
