Review summary

Having cruised with a number of other cruise lines, this was my first Princess Cruise and the fist time I used for my booking.   handled all the details of my booking and everything worked smoothly.  I really felt that they attempted personalized care for their clients and the message conveyed through.  Princess Cruise Lines is also a good solid organization that pays exceptional attention to all details.  Their food, entertainment and client care is well above average and provides for a smooth, enjoyable and relaxing vacation.  The cruising clientele was also very homogeneous and openly friendly helping Princess to convey their "Family Philosophy" feeling.  Overall, a great experience.
