Review summary

This was my grown son's very first cruise and he was truly impressed by everything!  The ship is beginning to show it's age, but it's still such a joy to sail on. The crew was incredible !!!  We could not believe we were going to have the pleasure of seeing PAUL on the entertainment staff again (our 3rd cruise with him and he is SO great!!!). We also enjoyed Mika, Carla. NATZ and all the others. Natz is an absolute BLAST !!!! We did take an excursion that was outside of Princess which we do not like to do but we felt we had no choice In Belize, the snorkeling is what we look forward to the most and we found an excursion thru eco-adventures that was amazing. The other two stops we did go onshore with Princess excursions. The food was great !!  We enjoy the pizza, dogs and burgers on Lido Deck for lunches, and the dinners were amazing!!! My son was truly impressed with everything!!  We enjoyed the onboard games and entertainment although we wonder if those who win trivia games (with perfect scores) live on the ship. Just wondering...  As I said, the ship is beginning to show its age and it's probably time for an upgrade. There were tiles loose in the bathroom which cut our feet from time to time. The toilet looked to have stains that can't be removed anymore. My daughter slept on the pullout couch bed which was not comfortable at all for her. It would not have been comfortable for any of us and since she is the youngest, she was kinda stuck with it. We only saw our room steward on our arrival and the last night. I guess we could have called to ask for some help with the pullout bed, but we didn't. My daughter's back was a mess by the end of the 6 days because of her sleeping. We had no need to contact our steward otherwise, but it would have been nice that he stop by and ask us how the bed was and if we needed any help with anything.

As I've said, there were loose tiles in the bathroom that can cut you if not careful. Also, the pullout couch bed was really bad and we will NEVER take a 3rd person along again unless we can be assured that the bedding for the 3rd person is better than this

Ship tip

Anytime dining is a great option since you never know when you might get to dinner each night.
