This trip was a very enjoyable way to spend the holidays. My favorite moment was when the ship came to a full stop for a while to allow Santa to board. While the ship was stationery in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, we witnessed sharks swimming leisurely along. That was very cool! Our room stewards on Princess are always prompt and attentive. The food is amazingly good and the selection is decent. The waiters heed every wish and remember your preferences. I wish there were less musical productions and more comedy, etc shows. The few craft classes that were offered filled up quickly. Only the first 24 people can attend. This could be solved by having a sign up instead of arriving an hour early to make sure you can get one of the coveted spots. I highly recommend Princess Cruise Line if you prefer a lower key cruise. There is a lot of quiet available and not many children are on board. ~Bon Voyage!

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BB
This cabin has an oversized balcony that is partially covered. It helps the room feel larger and offers privacy and outstanding views. Helpful hint for cruisers, bring magnets with clips to hang your paperwork on the wall. Best space saver idea I ever had.
