Crew was great.  Very friendly.   Really like the anytime dining option.  Loved the Crown grill, and the International cafe.  The entertainment was mixed.  There were a lot of fun options going on around the ship, every day.  DWIGHT BLAKE was a wonderful surprise in the piano bar (packed every night).

 The bigger shows were disappointing compared to other cruise experiences;

  Especially because Princess has been advertising a show based on music of Stephen Schwartz.  We were really looking forward to it. Did not find out until after the cruise. That it was only on 3 0f the Princess  Ships, NOT on the Grand Princess! 

The itinerary was good, overall, it was a good trip, would do it again, but at a cooler time of year in Mexico.



Cabin / Stateroom
Small, furniture worn--hideabed not great. Balcony, wonderful. There were 3 adults in our mini suite. A little tight, but the balcony made it comfortable.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very smooth both ways, impressive.
Ship Quality
Older, but comfortable and clean. Slow elevators.
