Review summary

If you love the ocean and Caribbean ports it’s a must do. If new to cruising, start with a 7 day cruise that way you know if cruising life is for you and your family or just as a couple. Then go to 10 or 14 days if you can.

Embarkation

3 out of 5
Arrived at our time and was the 3rd couple at the entry door prior customs. Princess employee told us to proceed to the gate. There were four. Well, at this point the employee check passes in other lines even though we were ahead and when he finally checkEd our paperwork, we had 45 couples who were behind us got served before 5the first couples including us we checked. Not happy by that at all. Princess , check your process at the front prior to customs as it’s nice a positive start.

Wheelhouse Bar

Great cozy spot to chat with great music in the background. If you are board and a musician named Jumari is on board go see him. He does a great show and song choice

No excursions we stayed at embassy suites pre cruise to unwind.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

As one would expect. Suggestion, bring water shoes as the entry to the ocean is a bit rocky at first.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
