Review SummaryTook the same itinerary with Princess last year and was not very happy with some of the services received.
However, this year Princess really stepped it up a few notches.
Food in both the dinning room and the buffets were very good in both presentation and taste. Of course, the snacks between meals like pizza and ice cream always make the day go faster (have to get to the gym).
Princess Cay was very nice. Suggest that you reserve a "claim shell" so that you can get out of the sun for awhile.
I would also suggest that you bring water shoes as the first 10 yards is a little rocky.
Cancun is always a great experience and the beaches are very nice. Would like to worn first time visitors to stay on the right side of the right side of the island as the left "Howard Johnson" side does have some questionable areas that while probably safe during daytime could make some uncomfortable.
Our favorite island is Aruba. There are some good value tours like the island waterpark and helmet dive.

Best buffet on deck 15 is in the back of the boat.
Also if you want some quite pool time the adult only pool all the way in the back is good but the quietest is the small pool near the gym.
