Review summary

ship is spectacular and as always, Princess does a great job. Some differences noticed from the Caribbean cruises also on Princess, include a weaker push on photos and alcohol. This can be interpreted either way but essentilally, photo opportunities are daily on the caribbean cruises but only 2 or 3 times on the Diamond. The "pushing" of the booze all over the ship, it was there, offered pleanty but not heavy as it as been in the past. I am not sure if that is a direct result of the recent "overboards" in recent past, or because there were a record number of under 18 yrs old passengers...over 750. Also, not that there wasn't alway pleany of food but the pizza and burgers which are open till wee hours of the morning on the Caribbean cruises, both closed at 7pm...nothing for late night but buffet or room service. overall a wonderful cruise, very family oriented.
