September 2014 - Caribbean Princess to Caribbean - Western
3 time cruiser here and Princess was the best of the 3. With an army of employees stationed at the terminal, getting on and off was a painless breeze. Balcony room had plenty of storage, but shower space must surely be a challenge for bigger folks. Crew was very attentive, friendly and helpful. Definitely enjoyed the coffee select card and the bar at the International Cafe. Main dining was just ok. Specialty dining at The Crown a major disappointment due to long wait between courses and wrong entree delivered to table, plus steak overcooked, we left without ordering dessert. Other folks raved about the place so our experience was probably an aberration. Sabatini's was delightful and delicious - Oxsana the waitress was great. Best shore excursion was the cooking class at Playa Mia resort in Cozumel, a lot of fun, Oscar the chef is a real entertainer who also knows how to cook. The pool with the large screen for movies was a favorite hangout. The art gallery folks were too aggressive for my taste, I don't care for pressure tactics, and besides, a little internet research revealed the exact same item at half the price; fun to browse, but don't push me. The photography folks were awesome, fun, and produced great shots. All in all, a good 5 day getaway from work, at a great price and with good memories.
