Amazing vacation!

Sail Date: October 28, 2015

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

We have been on several different cruise lines, and Princess far outweighed the other lines with the staff on the coral Princess! Ryan ( Head Waiter -early seating table #133) and Joku ( asst. waiter) were the friendliest most  accommodating members of your staff. Along with Kumar (bar waiter) and Noel (housekeeping) they made us feel like we were royalty! 

Joku made sure there were "soft rolls" for my sister and coffee during dinner for my mother every night, without asking. Ryan went above and beyond to make my parents happy, which made my trip a wonderful experience. Kumar recognized us, and my family, remembering their favorite should feel very lucky for having amazing people choosing your company to work for!Happy

Cabin / Stateroom We were in a balcony room, the only negative was the size of the shower...even small for ships
