Review summary

We saw beautiful fall color eventho several thought it was late for the season.

The ports were great however the tours we took through Princess were pricey and some were a poor value.  We booked Jungle Queen in Ft. Lauderdale on our own, took a taxi to marina where we did intercoastal water cruise.  It was less than half the cost Princess charged.  Charleston is very tourist friendly, has a free trolley and tours are available at tourist center for reasonable cost.  They also have a film for $2 about Charleston.  The 9/11 memorial was great to see but Princess docked in Brooklyn and we had to take a tour through Princess that was high priced.

We loved our roomy suite and we did not need balcony on this itinerary. When we booked they gave us an assessible suite and it was not as good as the same suite just regular.

Ship tip

Anytime dining was often with waiting lines. Any reservations were limited and 5-5:30pm was all that was available. The Speciality dining rooms were NOT worth the $25 cover charge.
