First cruise on a Princess Ship

Sail Date: March 18, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was beautiful. I especially loved all the details in the tile work and sea life embellishments throughout the ship. We could always find a deck chair and enjoyed the "Movie Under the Stars". The blankets were such a nice touch. This was our first time we have had a cabin with a balcony and it was wonderful. It was much for spacious than I expected. It had a two comfortable chairs and a table. My sister and husband were in the cabin next door and we were able to have the steward unlock a door between our balconies. That was outstanding for early morning and late night chats. Food was great and service was wonderful. I would said Princess again.

Pros: Our cabin with a balcony

Cons: No weeklong internet access package

Cozumel, Mexico
Half of our group went diving and LOVED it. Great Princess Staff along and great dive company. Very helpful to 'newbies'. The other half of our group shopped and had a great time. Wish the stay in port could have been longer.
Playa Del Carmen, Mexico
Shopping here was a waste of time. If you insist on shopping and want to get to the main shopping center TAKE A TAXI! Don't walk. It was like a Southern Rodeo Drive, no bargins to be had. As we dragged ourselves back to the boat we walked along the beach and regretted that we didn't just rent a chair and sit and enjoy the beach. That would have made for a perfect day. However, two in our group went to Tulum and enjoyed their tour.
Don't Miss: The beach. Just sit and enjoy.
Belize City, Belize
We took the snorkle tour but the reef wasn't in good shape because of the hurricanes last year. However, the shopping was great at the pier. Got some great deals at Diamonds International
