This was a nice size ship with beautiful decor, good food and pleasant staff. It was a great way for grandparents, parents and kids to get together and enjoy each other's company. There was something for all ages. My teenagers especially enjoyed themselves which was a surprise. We heard that 25% of the ship was under 18yrs of age. There was a nice variety of activities and entertainment. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean. It was nice to have a regular dinner table and time where we could all talk about our day. Most of the entertainment was good especially the comedians and the hypnotist , pool activities and the dance lessons. On the down side, the ports of call were pretty much the same: the beach and shopping. We Are from Florida, so it was not anything different from what we are used to. Also it would have been nice to have 4 instead of just 3 ports of call. My mattress was old and I could feel the springs that regularly woke me up. We have cruised on Princess 3 times before and probably would again.
