One engine broke the first night we set sail so the cruise was cancelled and the ship returned to Puerto Rico. The cruise line reimbursed everyone for the cruise and allowed anyone wishing to do so to stay onboard in Puerto Rico for the remainder of their stay. The personnel onboard made the best of a bad situation. Puerto Rico was beautiful.. One piece of luggage was damaged beyone repair waiting to see how this claim is handled by Princess.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food quality and service were wonderful. I have been on six cruises and they have the best service in the buffet areas. Two formal nights and if you did not want to dress in formal there was no dining areas availabel except for the buffet areas. It would have been nice if one of the dining rooms, since there were three was available to guests wanting to dress in casual clothing.
