Review summary

Well worth the cost. My daughter and other children smiled constantly If you weren't happy it's your fault. Get early shuttle ticket for Princess Cay. Explore the dining room menu. Don't be afraid to ask any staff for anything you will be directed to the right person to get what you want. Take a deep breathe ,smile, slow down and disconnect, except for the HUB.
