This Cruise provided a Special Experience for Siblings and Spouses

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This cruise provided a perfect opportunity for a group of family and friends to experience quality time together while exposed to the past and present cultures in three western Caribbean countries.

 

Note: This 'tip' would not fit in the space provided below for 'share a tip', so it is included here.

Prior to the cruise, one of our group submitted the Princess Cruises form for "Personal Health" via fax from Primary Care Doctor.  It was very disturbing to learn on-board that no personnel in the Medical Center, Captain's Office nor Passenger Services knew about the form or, if needed, how to retrieve the form possibly from the main office of Princess Cruises?  Would you please provide an explanation of how this "Personal Health" reporting system is to function.  Thanks for your response.

The cruise was good, as expected for a Princess cruise.

Small improvements may be helpful.

The temperature in at least one of the jacuzzi  should be higher.

When you come out of the elevator you should see a sign indicating odd or even cabin rooms.

A list of available juices should be posted

Disappointed sad I can say run and book

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

sadly, this was not a special cruise on Princess. I choose this ship 🚢 due to its size, days out @sea, and interinery. Sadly, I was disappointed w/ the ship. It's needs a quick pic me up updating and deep cleaning.

😒The Spa is like your local venue not a really pampering client oriented service spa.

☕️Tea afternoon is not the old elegant relaxing afternoon tea. Serving Lipton and snacks.

👍🏻Enjoy the piano playing around ship.                                                           ?.Games and 70's disco night LAMO.

👍🏻Good shopping nice shop, just enough and what u may need.

🤒Medical service very good and reasonable.

🍔Food sadly disappointing. Don't waist your $29 on speciality restaurants. Not worth it! Foods better quality than diningrm but not worth the extra charge. Nothing that more special. Not aged steaks, decent choose cuts. Portaion sizes were fine. 

Buffet is what you except. Ok 

🍷Wines just ok 

👍🏻.Waitstaff very good in both dining rm & resturants. 

🍷Wines just ok  overpriced selection. Extra charge  Wine tasting is wines served in diningrm. Paying extra To  taste wines for sale. 

👍🏻The port trip fun!

👎Take cab to the port the transfers are soooo not worth it. You have to look for a person. Figure out where to go. Do asks question. Wait maybe 2 buses. Lug all your own luggage out of the terrain all around the terminal to where you'll line up for bus. Listen to bus driver how hard it is to unload luggage. Tip... carry luggage across street. Line up to give it to ships crew. Tip. 

⛴ Balcony  Rms small w/ need of deep cleaning and fleshing update. Daily   maid service was great! it's just she doesn't clean dirty curtains, stained grout, tile's need steam clean carpets-- the wearn tear of ship  makes the whole ship look dingy and dirty. 

😪Just really sad this was not what I excepted from Princess

ps . Go for the higher end w/ amenities included. A lot of upcharges so you spend it anayway.  I felt at the end this was expensive for a so,so trip.   

Princess charge more and give more ESP quality food.

I liked the caribbean Princess best because its the smallest princess ship i have been on. everything was close by i could use stairs and not have to go 15 floors for something. The service was Princess which is outstanding.  The Food was great.The destinations were also excellent although Bonair is more for divers and snorkeling .

Great cruise, great food and fun itineraries, good value

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

It was a fun cruise, the food was great. We enjoyed this ship , much better then the new giant ships where you need to reserve for every thing! We were on the Harmony of the Seas in November and the shows were great but food was not good and everything was pain because you needed to reserve way in advance of the cruise! On the this ship you can do things on the fly, just make sure to get to shows at least 1/2 hour before they start if you want a good seat.

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

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

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...
