Cabin: Balcony

All of those concerns of this ship and crew are unwarranted. We were afraid as she is set to go into dry dock in March. Our cabin was starboard forward, right under the bridge on Caribe, we had booked a balcony guarantee. Well, rough seas the first two days into our cruise and we've decided no more forward/rear cabins for us. The movement we felt was pretty bad, my wife got to the point where she hated walking up to our cabin. Other than this movement, our cabin had a new bed and linens, our steward was great and we love caribe balconies for the larger space. The Crown is still in good shape, you could tell they've been replacing carpeting and even mattresses on our debarkation day. Entertainment was first class, great musicians and comedians. The anytime dining worked out great for our party of four, we usually got reservations when we wanted and the one evening (embarkation night) we only had to wait maybe ten minutes for the line to move. The service was wonderful, having many different tables throughout our time there. The food was fantastic, with variety and quality/temperature always spot on. We ate in the Crown Grille on our last night and everything was first rate, from the food/ steaks to service. We really can't find fault with a thing. Most of the pools were drained due to the rough seas but finally refilled by the time things smoothed out. The crew was quite careful with hand sanitizer and all public restrooms were always clean and well tended by the crews. No issues with sickness were known of other than one gentleman who we saw with a mask on who's wife had just been diagnosed with the flu were quarantined on the second day.

Other than the forward location of this cabin we loved it. We love the Princess configuration of the closed/bathroom set up. Plenty of storage and it had the new bed/linens.
