Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2017
  • Destination: the Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

My husband and I cruise frequently (mostly on RCL and Celebrity). This was our 4th on Princess and we both agreed this ship and sailing was one of the best cruises we have ever been on. The staff, ship and food were all outstanding. This was a cruise surrounding New Years eve and the festivities were great.

The ship is beautiful with many areas to sit and watch entertainment in the Piazza or just sit down and read a book.

Plenty of chairs outside by pools and on many decks to enjoy the sun. For adults only, the Retreat pool was great as the other pools were very busy on sea days.

We only used the dining room once and the food and service were outstanding, actually opted for the Horizon Grill and the selection and food were very good. The only speciality we tried this time was the Crab Shack, this would have been the only thing we were not incredibly impressed with (but that may just be us), we travelled with two other couples and they loved it.

We are not not much for stage shows so cannot evaluate that but did attend the outside entertainers and they were very good. The entertainers in the Piazza were great as well.

Again overall an exceptional vacation.

Cabin Review

Cabin BF M119

This was listed as a partial obstructed balcony- the obstruction was the roof of the bridge. This was to the left of our ocean viewing and only blocked our view of the ocean to front of the ship. All in all our view of the ocean was outstanding and would take this room again. The room itself had plenty of storage, both the bathroom and balcony were a little small but again overall very satisfied.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Princess Cays

Did not take an excursion just towels and laid on the beach. Wonderful time

St. Thomas

We just walked around, they are still trying to recoup after the hurricanes. They have power in some areas.


Interesting island, had booked a tour from an outside vendor prior to sailing. Unfortunately we were only there until 2pm - would have liked more time to enjoy the beaches.
