The Princess cruise line was definitely a superior experience to a carnival cruise we took two anniversaries ago. The price was very reasonable for all that was included within the boat. There were so many on-board activities it kept all busy yet relaxed. The activities for the children with the strict chaperoning was a joy to observe. After docking in Mexico we rented a golf cart and toured the city to our merriment. We loved our cruise so much I should give it 5 stars but there was a constant presence of a certain social sport team that brought the "party cruise atmosphere". They overwhelmed the bar staff and wait staff which slowed our service noticeably. Having to constantly witness college club like behavior especially around our two kids would be the only downside to an otherwise very romantic weekend. From the firsthand accounts of many regular cruise goers we met this was not a norm for the Princess Cruise Lines and we believed them. We will definitely be booking with the Princess Cruise Lines again.

The "all you can drink alcohol card" was an immense deal since it included water bottles and artisan coffees. As well as the "all you can drink card" for the youth since it included mocktails. Those cards saved us lots of money!
