Getting on and off of the ship was easy with little delay or confusion.
Itinerary was the prime motivator along with a relatively recent renovation. Renovation did not mean that the storage drawer tracks were in good working order however. The wear and tear was evident though overall service, Princess Entertainment, the International Cafe (food and service) and the dining room service were standouts.
For our needs, more time at sea would have been appreciated. Two new ports this trip, Martinique and Trinidad. Each is really a city and not a vacation destination for cruises. Watch for your valuables as there are those who can pick a pocket with the best of them on the two new venues. (US$257)
The new shower head was a clear improvement. The TV was updated although the available content was sparse. The weather brought us a Gale Force 8 wind with 7 foot seas for a day or two but the front of ship location provided a smooth ride. Our cabin attendant was responsive and cordial although very busy as is customary.
The cabin was otherwise a bit worn and threadbare.
