Review summary

We were fortunate to cruise with family friends and had a great time. Princess did a great job creating a warm holiday spirit, with both Christmas and Hanukkah services on board, and Christmas caroling in the lobby. It was lovely. We enjoyed Princess' Messenger service for smart phones which is a sort of free Text message app . It also listed the events of the days and locations which was very helpful. We enjoyed the walking deck, card/game room where our teens spent lots of time making puzzles and playing games. The Entertainment was excellent, best I have seen on my 13 cruises. The ship was very nice, the buffet was a bit modest but very satisfying. All the wait staff was wonderful and helpful.

Excellent, so enjoyable. The shows were super, and our whole family really enjoyed them. Project 5 band was fantastic and got us dancing most nights. The VOICE was such a wonderful opportunity - we loved it!
