Bad Experience

Sail Date: November 23, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

We had some bad weather and we made due.  It was disappointing that Roatan, Honduras was cancelled and we missed Belize because of Windy conditions.  I was also disappointed in the Added port of Costa Maya as it was no more that a bunch of T-Shirt Shops. 


I had to call service 5 times for a toilet that would not flush. Some of the staff could not give us directions on how to get around on the ship.  The front desk messed up my credit card and I had to go to the services desk 3 times on the last night of the cruise to get it corrected and they still left my sea card locked so no more onboard purchases were allowed.


As much time as we had to spend on the ship, the variety of activities were limited and repeated, in different ways but never the less repeated.


All in all we had a good time because we were not at work and even though it was probably just a fluke of a bad time, I have a bad taste of Princess in my mouth and will probably not travel with them again unless they give me one so they can make things right.
