Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The entertainment was not as good as expected.  There needs to be more information about each port previous to landing.  The food was not up to the expectations of Princess.  That said, we enjoyed the chance to be together with our family and the various things going on gave each person an opportunity to do their things yet get together for supper.  Our grandson enjoyed the youth program immensely.  Our room was always clean and the people on board who served us were excellent.  Our room steward always seemed to be busy and was extremely friendly and helpful.  The ship was clean and spacious.  We appreciated that alcohol was not pushed, available but not pushed all the time.

Ship Quality
Always clean and every attempt was made to keep the boat germ free.
Food and Dining
Quantity and variety were great but the quality was not up to Princess standards.
Service and Staff
No problem here with everyone friendly and helpful.
Other cruises have been better with more variety.
Children's Programs
Our grandson was with the program the whole time except to eat with us.
Onboard Activities
Something for everyone. The daily newspaper was hard to read.
Destinations and Excursions
These were as good as expected. We used Princess for one and arranged the other two ourselves.
Cabin / Stateroom
With our family of 8 on board it was great to have a meeting room large enough to have Christmas gift exchange. Our grandson slept in our room on the hide-a-bed giving his mom and dad and sister a little more room in their room. It was great and our steward was also great.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
The port is good. I did not shop there but my wife did.
Belize City, Belize
Cozumel, Mexico
You need to do something here besides get off the ship.


We arranged for a driver in Rowatan and for an 8 person van in Belize. There are lots of drivers out there but it helped us feel secure when our Princess excursion in Belize was late.
