Review SummaryThis was our 12th cruise but FIRST on Princess line. Never again will we sail on this line. I spent 3 days sick with food poisoning- my husband got food posioning as well. we were very disappointed to find that this cruise line is clearly for elders. We are in late 40's/early 50's and cruised during school vacation. There were literally 13 kids on board!!! we have 11 yr old twins who saved their money to use in the arcade on the ship. Well, on this ship you have to be 13 or older to use it!!! Next, kids go to get an ice cream sundae and of course they charge for it at $3.75 a pop!! There wasn't a juice machine like ohther cruise lines have (cranberry, orange, apple). I bought a soda "card" for the week and they would not allow me to have a diet coke CAN--only fountain drinks.
The diet coke was so flat you couldn't even drink it! My son cut his hand by the pool on a piece of metal on the wrap around bench and had to go the ships doctor...he needed stitches and they have the gall to charge us $250.00 when it was clearly negligence on their part. Food was absoultely horrendous...it was by far, the worst cruise we have ever been on!!!
Food and Dining
In port days, they were supposed to be open all day but instead they were closed...
very very small room too...do not sail on this ship if you have children. can't hold a candle to carnival, disney, norwegian, and even celebrity!!!!!!
