We book this cruise every year. 3rd time on Princess. For us, no fly. Pleasant week . Great ports. For once, the weather cooperated. In past years we missed a port or two due to weather.
Embarkation was a breeze. We finally found a convenient way to access the Brooklyn cruise pier by using the water taxi from pier 11 at Wall St. It drops off at Red Hook across from the ship. Just reverse going home.
We sailed with our kids and 3 year old grandson. The children’s program was super. He couldn’t wait to get there each day. Because of sailing with him, we made an early reservation each night in the Michelangelo dining room. The staff was welcoming and very efficient. The food was excellent, both as to variety and quality.
