I choose Princess Cruise for the variety and quality of their food. Princess culinary is the best, to my opinion. The restaurant menu are different each couple of days. Princess prioritizes quality over quantity. The amount of food in each plate is adequate for me but may be small for others. This is a plus, because we have the opportunity to order more plates and can teste more varieties.

I like the steake which is cooked to perfection and to my preference. I cruised before with other company and i can assure you that if you want good steake you will need to go to a specialty restaurant. This is not the case with Princess. The steake in their normal dining restaurant is acceptable and above average.

I love their desert. There are endless of chocolate deserts and puttings. I like the millfeille chocolate and NewYork Cheese Cake.

Cabin Review

Cabin is average but clean. The bed is comfortable. There is a big mirror above the head bed and a desk with big mirror opposit it. The big mirror make the room look larger despite it size.

My room is R716 on 14th floor, closer to the back of the ship. To me, this is my best choice, as it give me direct access to a small swimming pool and more secluded beach chair. In this area, there are hot tub and a smaller cold swimming pool. The decoration is amazing and it is way better than the main swimming pool are where is it always too crouded.

An open bar is near by the swimming pool and there are waiters that can be called just by raising your hand.

Port Reviews

Cartagena (Colombia)

Great colonial city to visit. It is hot and humid.

Good for nature lover.


Although I have been twice to Jamaica, this visit still good to me.
