Let's get the good out of the way first...huge closets, lots of storage space, beautiful ship in pristine condition, better food in standard dining rooms than most cruise lines and exquisite food in the specialty (add-on cost) restaurants. However, imagine being asked to pay $59.99 per person per day for a beverage package, $29.99 per day for multiple internet devices, shore excursions more than double the price of tours purchased independently, and better wines available by the glass in the specialty lounges but not in the dining rooms (at extra cost, of course). The service and cleanliness of the ship in general were well above par. There were a few exceptions, but nobody's perfect. The entertainment is of high school theater group caliber -- frankly embarrassing for what you pay. The one pleasant surprise was the ability to bring wine onboard at each port. They ask you to register hard liquor but didn't seem to care about wine. I was told the stateroom attendants will get a corkscrew for you. There will be an obnoxous $15 corkage fee if you bring your own wine to the public spaces.

Know before you go -- Princess nickels and dimes you to death
