Book early for the steakhouse restaurant.g
Wheelhouse Bar, happy hour twice a day buy one get one for $1. Can buy bottle beer and leave unopened to take back to cabin!
Princess is always a great cruise line. We were a little disappointed there was no International Cafe, but we survived. In 2016 we stepped away from Princess and went the Royal Caribbean route. Royal was ok, much more to offer but overall we are a Princess family and that's where we will stay for now on, especially now that we have reached Platinum status.
Check to make sure your ship has been renovated within the last two or three years.
Look for the Wake Bar.
If sailing anywhere in the tropics, expect tropical weather and humidity
wish there was more fish selection in Horizon court buffet at lunch and dinner menus
For food lovers out there, i highly recommend: - horizion buffet (mashed potato with beef stew) - pizza (yummy, cheesy & thin)
Only use Princess tours as a last resort or outside vendors don't offer a tour. Find options through websites well in advance. We used Cruise Critic to connect with other folks and we toured and transferred with them. We didn't feel that the specialty restaurants had any value ($29/person).
Try to source own excursions and be prepared for on board spending to be more that other cruise lines.
Use non Princess excursions where possible
FIND ANOTHER SHIP TO CRUISE ON!
Make your own arrangements rather than using the airport transfer. You can personalize to your particular flight plans and probably even save money.
Nome one smiles anymore!
Stay away of this ship. Ship is good, however its services are bad.
I have an account via www.SendOutCards.com/cards247 to send customised postcards and cards to people whilst I am on the cruise.
JAPANESE STYLE TOILETS WHICH ARE INSTALLED IN SOME CABINS ARE AN EXPERIENCE WORTH THE TRIP. SAILING OUT OF JAPANESE PORTS IS A GREAT EXPERIENCE WITH DOCKSIDE ENTERTAINMENT/MUSICAL SENDOFF-NOT TO BE MISSED
IF you're doing anytime seating, make reservations in the morning to avoid waiting for a table for dinner - esp. with a party of 6+.
Always table in lido deck - food was good - good variety Good entertainment choice
Bring your own hair dryer unless you actually like those crappy ones that are attached to the wall.
