Princess had its act together for both embarkation and debarkation better than other lines. Very good shore tours with the opportunity to cancel a day or so beforehand. Service OK, but not unusual. Food was Ok but not great - we heard the food staff was fighting and that affected the food quality. We had heard wonderful things about Princess, such as once you go Princess, you will never take another line. We think Holland was better overall, and my wife thought Carnival was not far behind.It was fully booked at 2,600 people, but did not seem crowded unless you went to the buffet at peak times.Very good on-board programs, and always something to do.There is an Internet facility with about 25 or 30 units at $7.50 per 15 minutes, which is cheap compared to some lines. It will be interesting to see if the rates change from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean.Overall, not a bad cruise but not up to the hype we had heard.
