Disappointed

This was our first Princess cruise and perhaps our last. There was nothing noteworthy that would make us choose this line again. We booked through United because their last minute prices were better than booking ...

The Fog Was Not The Issue, it was the whole boring cruise.

We had high hopes for our Princess cruise. It did not take very long for them to start screwing it up. Our first purchase was the soda package. I love Diet Sprite and that is what I remarked to the seller. I do ...
