Wonderful but all that hand washing made it uncomfortable.

Review summary

Unfortunately the norovirus had taken this ship over and many passengers were sick and quaranteed. It made us very uncomfortable and nervous about getting sick. The staff tried their best to keep it clean. When Princess advised us that we were docking a day earlier, we had to make our own hotel reservations for the night we had to spend in Fort Lauderdale before our flight home. They did not help us in any way. I am shocked at the way we were treated. Princess will be hearing from me. I have been on Princess for about 14 cruises and to be treated this way is disgusting.

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was great but the buffet because you couldn't take the food yourself because of the norovirus, it was handed to you by a gloved crewmember. It took a lot longer and there were long lineups.
