  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Excellent in every way! Boarding was fast and efficient; luggage delivered quickly; room steward ("D" as he wanted to be called) was nearby to greet us and explain what he was going to provide and asked if we had any special request. Fantastic service.

Cruise was a combination of celebrations my wife and I usually celebrate (birthdays, anniversary) as we do not do anything special during the year. Cruising is our time for the celebrations we share with other passengers.

One of our stops was in Casablanca, Morocco. I was stationed there with the Navy in 1971 thru 1973 at a location north of Casablanca called Sidi Yahia near Kenitra. Wanted to show off the country to my wife. Was a good experience for her.

The activities were plentiful and there was plenty to do. The sea days my wife was able to do some quilting project and I was sitting nearby reading or working on a project.

All of the crew and officers were friendly and very helpful.

The only glitch was disembarking and clearing customs in Florida. We were held in the lounge for an extra 45 minutes or so. No fault of the Princess Cruise line.

Will do another one with them again within a year. We try to do at least on cruise a year.

Cabin Review


Comfortable, clean and adequate for travel purposes. Nice view at all ports and enough room for the time we spent there.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Saw the whole city by using both the green and red bus routes.

Cartagena (Spain)

Took the mine tour with the flamingo dancer. Good tour and informative. Recommend for those who might have mild to no walking restrictions. If you do not like closed, tight, dark spaces, it might not for you.


Took a sight seeing bus tour with a stop for shopping. It was okay for what it was. The guide could have been a bit more informative.


Nice city and was a pleasure to walk around.
