New Years cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was very nice overall.

But I expected more of a New Years Eve cruise , since we paid so much more for a Holiday cruise" , they really didn't do much for New Years Eve.

You could spend time in the small Piazza with maybe 15 seats,

and stand on the steps or next floors. Which I can't do ,I have to sit when I'm someplace for more than 5 minutes .. When we got out of the restaurant all seats were already taken. You could go to a bar/lounge or the Lido deck.

Most people were on the Lido deck, That's where we ended up, Nothing special ,, not even a little glass of champagne at Midnight, they wanted you to buy a bottle.

That's the first and last holiday cruise we'll ever take.

The food was good, we liked the German buffet.and they offered lobster 3 nights.

Wonderful Christmas Cruise

My husband and I truly enjoyed our Christmas cruise. The ports we stopped at where beautiful, the shows on the ship were first rate, the food was great, our balcony room was very nice. I do feel they can improve the tender process when arriving at Princess Cays as it took us 1.5 hours to get on shore. Other than that I didn't have a problem.

The window suite was a wonderful configuration for our cruising situation.  The food, entertainment and ports were all well done.  The crew and stewards gave great time and attention to your comfort at all times.

Disappointing for princess

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

this cruise was a disappointment.  The staff was unfriendly and unhelpful.  And the boat felt understaffed.  That set the flavor to negative.  The boat was tired.  Anytime dining required standing on lines.  The buffet had lines.  The boat needed refurbishing.  There were no speakers, no classes.  The activities were geared toward kids and families, and as seniors we were disappointed.

Close to very good

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I had a really nice time. I had a lovely cabin with a balcony on the 14th floor, unfortunately the cabin next to mine and the two across the hall were all occupied by one family, which was probably requested and must have been nice for them, but I felt like I was in their living room. They were constantly in and out of each other's cabins, letting the doors slam at all hours of the day.

 

My second issue was that travel to the excursions took us through some really unpleasant sights namely rampant poverty. I understand that is just the socio-economic makeup of the countries we were in but it made a trip to the Mayan ruins a little less special when we had to pass shoeless children begging for money.

 

My third issue was room service. We ordered twice. The food was good, the service was good, but getting someone on the phone to actually take our order took over 10 minutes both ties. It was strange.

 

The trip was pretty nice otherwise.

Need more cruises in this time frame as kids miss no school and are home by Christmas. Jr. Chef was the best and I would recommend it for any kid interested in cake decorating but do go up and sign up as soon as you can as space is limited and fills up fast. It was the highlight of my grand daughters cruise. The ship was decorated for Christmas beautifully.

The Cruise was outstanding in all respects. This was clean and everything I used worked well. The crew was very courteous and was trying to help when they thought there was a problem. Our state room was very clean and the steward was prompt when I had question or problem. Food was excellent and too plentiful. We did not go ashore in the ports as we have been there before as this was for us to relax and unwind.

It was good but not the best

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I was a little disappointed in the evening shows, 2 times it was comedy acts but the comedians where not very good, especially for the main show of the evening. Also, on other cruise lines I have been on, there were towel animals (towels that are in shape of an animal) when you get back to your room at night- but not Princess. And lastly, there wasn't a run walking track to just walk about the ship while getting some exercise between meals.

Pros though were the layout of the ship, the waiters/waitress was very helpful on items on the menu that were unique.

I may take another Princess cruise, but I will try another linear first.

The buffets had exceptional food and the lines were short. Use anytime dining worked best for my group.

Recommend Anytime Dining, Movies under the Stars, and eating breakfast and lunch in the Horizon cafe. Ship layout is great for picture taking. Multiple pools for relaxing and having fun. Some are even adult only...

For those adults that want quiet, go to the aft pool on deck 14...wonderful place to hang out.
