Sail Date: Oct 2010

We used the transfer from LaGuardia airport to the Brooklyn Pier. Very fast, friendly and efficient. The Princess rep was waiting for us at baggage claim. It took a little longer than expected to board, as the cruise before had an outbreak of NoroVirus, and had to be disinfected. Once we were on the ship, we immediately felt relaxed!

Our Mini-Suite was wonderful and our room steward, Benjamin, did a great job. Going above and beyond by getting us an egg-create (recommended) for the bed and also getting me an oscillating fan (need the noise). I loved our veranda, the only small issue was the fact that everyone above the 9th floor can look down on you. A must, that we enjoyed so much with the balcony, was viewing the millions of stars at night! Simply gorgeous!

Formal night was very hot and hectic. It's fun getting dressed up, but not when all other 3098 fellow passengers are doing the same. This was our first cruise, so we wanted the experience, but next time (and we are definitely going again!) I think we are going to skip all of the hoopla and have a hot dog by the pool (Best hot dog EVER, by the way). If you want a table for two when dining, and have anytime dining, call VERY early in the morning to get reservations. They go fast. But don't be afraid of sitting with new people. We ate in the dining room five or six times, and always had great conversation. Also, don't be afraid to try something new. I LOVED the watermelon and feta cheese appetizer I tried. Who would have thought?
