When it's all said and done, I would strongly advise no sailing with Princess. While our destinations were beautiful (Mexican Riviera), the experience onboard was - at the end of the day - really bad. The good ...

Worst Cruise we've ever been on!

We cruise once or twice a year usually on Princess or Carnival, the reason we decided to go on Norwegian is because we wanted to try out a new ship and since Bliss is a brand new ship it made our decision very easy. ...
