This being our first Princess cruise we were both excited and anxious. We were booked in a category BC cabin on the Caribe Deck -- first time ever with a balcony (and I'm sure that it won't be our last time!) Our arrival at the port went very smoothly. Embarkation: We arrived around 1:45 pm and embarkation was smooth sailing all the way. From the time we entered the building until we were in our cabin was no more than 15 minutes. Everything about embarkation was very efficient. Meals: The food in our main dining room was the best cruise food that we have ever experienced. We enjoyed many meals in the Horizon Dining Room (the 24-hour restaurant). Without exception the food in the Horizon was fresh and very good. There was always a place to sit and the lines were never very long. Entertainment: This seemed to be the one area that we were disappointed in (partly because the entertainment was not to our liking and partly because the performers, overall, were not very good). Since there were plenty of other things to do the lack of good entertainment did not really bother us. Ship's amenities: The pools were wonderful and the cruise director was very entertaining. The spa and gym programs were very good. The Dawn is a beautiful ship. There was always a quiet place to sit or an activity to join!
