Having traveled a number of years ago on Emerald Princess, I was keen to try out this much larger ship. It is interesting that from the outside, it does look a bit like a multi-storey car park, but once inside it is very easy to navigate and it takes no time at all to become familiar with the public spaces. We had deluxe balcony cabin M510 on deck 15. Well appointed and spacious, excellent functional bathroom and plenty of storage space. Cabin sound insulation excellent too. What I enjoy most about Princess are the informality and easiness, but the excellent quality of service and food & wine.All of the staff we came into contact with were delightful, very polite and helpful. Food in all areas was exceptional, especially the Crown Grill which is WELL worth the 29 dollar supplement.The enclave in the Lotus Spa is a wonderful place to relax and was certainly worth the 199 dollars for ten days. All in all, a lovely ship, with a lovely relaxed vibe and excellent customer service.

Lovely experience

  • Snorkeling
    took a catamaran out to shipwreck site and snorkeled over it! was well organised and we saw some amazing fish and coral. Then took us to turtle bay where we saw three turtles close up!On the way home, the catamaran hoists the sails and travels without a motor which is wonderful to experience. The crew serve rumpunch and champage and fruit/ veggies with dips. A great day had by all
