Review Summary

Loved my Cruise at Princess. Beyond our expectation. Food, service, cleanliness, kids club, itinerary,... worth the trip. The islands are one of the most beautiful from Caribbean. Bonaire was a very positive surprise. Never had a chance to swim so close to a huge ship with so clean and transparent water. Loved the kids club. They were all very professional and patient. Every day they had different activities for the kids. The only disappointment was the noise in the cabin late at night during performances ( be aware of the noise if staying above theater). We enjoyed so much that we are already considering the next cruise with Princess.

Loved the kids club. Every day they had different activities for the kids. My daughter loved it. Great as we had a chance to enjoy our dinners and gym while kids had a lot of fun. The cruise is so successful that the booking office for future cruises was always busy. They should increase their staff responsible for this area in order to better service the guests interested in future cruises. . We had to wait once up to 30 minutes once and there was always a line outside the booking office.

Ship Tip

Make sure you DO NOT t stay above the Theater. That is, front cabins on 8th floor, worse if the cabin is on top of orchestra as mine. That's the only disappointment from my trip. There was no disclaimer that the cabin had noise late at night on days of shows. I travelled with my 3 year old daughter and went back to the room a few nights prior to 10pm. It was as if I had no right to rest prior to late at night (even after 10pm a few days). Very noisy inside the cabin during performances at the theatre. Unfair as I was not told about this sort of disturbance on the cabin. In one night it was so loud on the rock &roll show that the noise woke up my daughter. Cabin not suitable for whoever wishes to rest prior to very late at night.

Loved it! Never had a chance to swim so close to the ship like we did in Bonaire. Super clean and transparent water. Amazing sea life. Loved all.
