One thing princess do well is board you! Full points The sooner they get you on the ship they can sign you up for their exhorbitant drink packs $us 59/day for alcohol $us 10 for sodas $30 for specialty coffees You can pay extra for dining ,we did ,and the crown gill surf and turf was wortk the extra29 dollars fee,but the surf(lobster) was an extra 10 bucks on top of the extra fee! There is plenty of food ,all the time ,so i cannot see why anyonw would want to pay extra10-20$ for an afternoon tea.! Most of the food was quite good Of course all these are subjected to the usual taxes and tips Tips ran to about $us 15 per person today which is fairly standard. Problem is ,there is no much service! Try showing up at the anytime dining(lol),and you often have to wait forty five minutes .this was a common occurunce and many people in the ship were unhappy. I felt sorry for the girl at the front desk ,who copped a lot of anger! Once in service is fast,cutlery almostthrown on the table,the waiting staff are all under the pump The cleaning staff are all under the pump,and many stewards will knock ,and open the door w/o waiting for an answer IF you want to see a show arrive 30,but preferably 45 min before hand or you WILL NOT GET A SEAT The ports..tender transfers to princess kays, beach owned by princess Carribean ports. St thoma st maarten ok Back to port everglades where you have to diembark for security before embarking again 2 hr later .thought princess could provide a shuttle to the shops for the 400 odd passengers doing back to back cruises,no luck. Usual art auctions /casino etc Port talks!!GRRRR i thought that the port talk on whichever port it was would be helpful,but it was a push to buy yellow diamonds or tanzanite! The person giving the talk was like oprah on steroids Tanzanite is a bargain! Thetime to buy is now, well yesterday. True if you want $200 2 carat tanzanite earrings ,go ahead,just know what you are getting. Is it a bargain? I dont know.does it look great ? Dunno .Resale? Ha So if you like an all inclusive cruise this isnt for you If you like shopping, where every second shop in most ports is diamond shop./efys ,go ahead. And a final quibble,dial up room service for a bottle of champagne,told not available on room service! Went to the bar who couldnt believe it! Went to the mgt who couldnt believe it! Whilst wasting my time doing this roomservice phoned back my wife and said the domaine chandon could only be brought form the evening restaurant! And room service DENIED this to the mgr and said they were trying to find some for us.! So traipsed back up to room with glasses ,champagne ,and ice bucket.( the boat comped this .i giveroom service ,and their associated tax 0/10. I know this is a first world problem,but you go on holidaysto not have first world problems.well not on cruise ships anyway. Toileties in room ,minimal Nuts with drinks ,sometimes yes sometimes no My wife developed a rash from using the roughest toilet paper i have ever seen We received brochures for up coming cruises,free drinks/wifi/gratuities included.,and so thiswould be cheaper,but i worry about where they are goung to make the savings

One thing princess do well is board you! Full points

The sooner they get you on the ship they can sign you up for their exhorbitant drink packs

$us 59/day for alcohol $us 10 for sodas $30 for specialty coffees

You can pay extra for dining ,we did ,and the crown gill surf and turf was wortk the extra29 dollars fee,but the surf(lobster) was an extra 10 bucks on top of the extra fee!

There is plenty of food ,all the time ,so i cannot see why anyonw would want to pay extra10-20$ for an afternoon tea.! Most of the food was quite good

Of course all these are subjected to the usual taxes and tips

Tips ran to about $us 15 per person today which is fairly standard.

Problem is ,there is no much service!

Try showing up at the anytime dining(lol),and you often have to wait forty five minutes .this was a common occurunce and many people in the ship were unhappy. I felt sorry for the girl at the front desk ,who copped a lot of anger!

The cleaning staff are all under the pump,and many stewards will knock ,and open the door w/o waiting for an answer

IF you want to see a show arrive 30,but preferably 45 min before hand or you WILL NOT GET A SEAT

The ports..tender transfers to princess kays, beach owned by princess

Carribean ports. St thoma st maarten ok

Back to port everglades where you have to diembark for security before embarking again 2 hr later .thought princess could provide a shuttle to the shops for the 400 odd passengers doing back to back cruises,no luck.

Usual art auctions /casino etc

If you like shopping, where every second shop in most ports is diamond shop./efys ,go ahead.
