Don't go on their ships.
Don't worry if you don't have a tuxedo for formal nights. Many men were wearing suits and ties. The soft drink package is worth the price if you are a moderate Coke, Sprite, Diet Coke drinker. The future cruise deposit is a must if you think you might be cruising again with Princess in 2 years.
Bring a trench coat. It gets a bit windy, but do enjoy the space up top!
A lot of passengers we spoke with had air conditioning issues as well.
I still think Royal Carribean is better but Princess is close
You can dress casual or dress-up if you wish. Anytime dining is nice as you can go to the dining room anytime you want to.
Make sure to visit the International cafe on the Plaza deck. The pastries are good and a great place for a light lunch. The only place to get fresh brewed coffee on the ship. The coffee card if you like specialty coffees is a good deal and it gives you free brewed coffee.
Catch the shows. I suggest the dining rooms for lunch rather than the buffet.
Beautiful ship! Excellent service throughout. Get a balcony room. It is worth the extra dollars!!! Check the Princess Patter each evening so you can plan your activities for the next day ahead of time! Relax and enjoy!!
I liked the way the captain kept us informed through-out the journey. They had plenty of elevators to service 3000 people. It was a beautiful ship but get a balcony! It was nice to sit on the balcony when it was warm.
Oder your breakfast coffee from room service.
The Piazza has real good food and coffees too. Take time to enjoy the entertainment there while having a snack and or your favorite coffee.
I loved when the elevator announced the name of the floor and the way the captain spoke about the ship. Each time when he described the ship, "The Beautiful Emerald Princess", I grew to love her more!!!
The breakfast in the Lido has special to order omlets
Dont plan any excursions at Turks because there is a great restaurant, bar, pool right at the pier.
Don't miss British Pub Lunch on sea days - they have at least two separate menus.
Be ready to have a lot of fun and relaxation.
Arrive at embarkation point early and get to dining area soon after boarding to try to avoid the food line.
The food was awful, limited choices with many foods over and over such as one night having most of the main dishes containing Salmon. Buffet traffic flow was horrible.
Make sure your camera is ready for all the wonderful things you will capture!we
