We chose this cruise because there were three ports we hadn't see yet Grand Turk, Saint Kits, and Antigua. We had booked our flights our selves and within ten days of departure we were informed that Princess changed the method they allow passengers to board. Were were assigned a boarding time of 2:30pm, which caused us to change our travel plans. However, we were able to board by 1:30. We also had to change our return flight at a considerable additional cost due to a miscommunication from Princess and take an excursion instead of siting at the airport for hours. Even with the glitches embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly.
The ship, was in need of repair, i.e., one of the public bathrooms had a tile that was "glued" on with chalking. A good number is deck chairs had paint splatter on them. It is scheduled for renovation in 2020.
The entertainment was mediocre to poor compared to other cruises we have taken. The Port information seminars were nothing more than a sell job of the shops.
The cabin was a bit smaller, but was much quieter than expected. Only once did we hear noises outside our room even though we were right off the elevator. The room carpet and balcony had not been vacuumed when we first boarded and it took three attempts to get it cleaned, even after talking with the Front Desk. The balcony mat had paint splatter on it and was never removed during our cruise. We saw our steward only once.
