We have always cruised with Princess and have not been to any of the ports on this cruises before. The wait stall was extremely delightful. The cabin steward was very attentive. The entertainment was great. Had a wide variety of entertainment which included singers, dancers, a juggler (which was hysterical), a hypnotist, great production shows, lectures and musicians. The ports were good, the excursion were great except for one. We have already signed up for another cruise with Princess in Dec., 2018 yo Austraia and New Zealand. During the cruise we got to see many different birds. The Captain or the Emerald was the best Captain we have ever cruised with. He was alway out and about with the passengers and greeted every one. He kept us well advised of the weather and the ocean conditions. The weather was diverse. Some cool weather to very hot and humid weather. All in all a terrific time and can't wait till our next cruise with Princess.
