Sail Date: December 12, 2006

Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple

Me, my husband Len and friend Charlie agreed almost from the start about the awesome crew, although the size of our cabin appeared on the small size it had all the comforts of home with quick and fastidiious service right at our finger tips. We genuinely loved our new found friends at Table 133 in the dining room, the non-stop committment of Luijhie and Lawrence who were most affable, polite and attentive to all of our needs. The productions, staff in general and off-shore excursions were well planned and more than met with our needs. Our friend Charlie in C225 complimented me on my off-shore excursion choices; the staff was polite especially when I had to change one 7:25 Am departure to a more feasible time. This was our very first experience with the Princess Cruise Lines and we're already looking forward to more sea adventures with you. Although we found some inconsistencies with our billing, upon our quick disembarkation on Friday the 22nd, I'm sure that it will straightened out after the Christmas holiday. We loved the upscaled services and environs and the laid back unpretentious feelings while on board. Thank you from the bottom of our Californina hearts for another sea adventure that was so hard to beat!!

We enjoyed the Pirate experience on this moderately paced journey. Learned much about the beautiful lay-out of the area, banks & living conditions. 600 banks, wow-ee!! If I had my choice, this is where I would love to have a 2nd home.
Don't Miss: We loved seeing the home, close to the sea that belonged to A.L. Thompson? who owned the home depot in Grand Cayman.

What a delight to see in technicolor the genius of U.S. engineering put into prospective. Enjoyed seeing the old and new Panama. Unusual seeing a full blown upscaled residence and a war torn obstacle within seconds of each other. The boxed lunch I could have done without it, however, the tour guide knew her material and presented all of the highlights in detail. The contrasts were magnificent and the rewards were great. Can't wait to see the future growth and investment in expanding the Canal.
Don't Miss: The steps in the old city on the Pacific side were unapproachable to me being handicapped, however, I waited for the group to return.

I wasn't disappointed about not going to Montego Bay because the Ocho Rios experience fulfilled all of my expectations and needs. Enjoyed our hostess, who was very knowleadgable and upbeat. Our journey to the pottery factory was very fascinating and I bought a lovely piece for my newly decorated kitchen. The trip was very beautiful and the above and beyond lunch at La Aubergine was beyond anyone's dreams. The service was for Royalty, and had a very special, magnificent European-Caribbean charm and the food was well presented, and more than met with my expectations and cooked to perfection. The staffing was Umm-Puh, very professional and courteous.

Pros: The luxury of cruising with a most attentive crew

Cons: The disembarkation was a little disheartening. Our luggage was in three areas
