Review summary

17 on carnival. 1st on princess. Lots of differences. I will definitely cruise princess again. Both good cruise lines. Princess was a little more laid back and more refined.

Something going on all the time. If it's not your thing, then relax on the deck.

Service and Staff

Roz our room steward was great. Air was working subpar. He Brought in a bucket of ice and fan for us. Really made a temperature difference in the Room. Alberto and husin And the dining Room were fantastic. Drink glass was never empty.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
A small ship. Very clean. And yes, there was maintenance going on every day like I have seen on the last 17 cruises I have been on. I'd rather see the maintenance then for them to let the ship fall apart

Cabin / Stateroom

Room smaller than carnival. but layout made you feel like you had more room. Sliding balcony doors a big plus.

All cruise lines are different. All cruises are different. Keep an open mind. This was a fantastic trip. I will definitely sail princess again
