First Princess Cruise to Western Caribbean Falls Short

Sail Date: November 15, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was nice and clean; ports were pretty good and service on ship was good.  Food was NOT as good as we expected, especially in the Horizon Court buffet! Anything wanted like soft drinks, etc. was ala carte and that was frustrating.

Compared to Disney cruises that we've been on, this cruise fell way short of those standards in terms of food and entertainment!  This was a good cruise, just not a great cruise, as we had expected!

Cabin / Stateroom
Pretty clean but rust spots on the balcony and other places on the ship; shower handles fell off when taking showers --- that's a concern for such a new boat.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Pretty good --- seemed to be chaotic getting off the ship but pretty smooth getting back on
Ship Quality
Liked the design and cleanliness of the boat --- noticed rusting on our balcony and several places on the boat and for a new boat, that shouldn't happen --- crew should be taking care of right away and I did let them know!
Destinations and Excursions
Felt the destinations were good and didn't get a chance to do more excursions so really couldn't rate those.
Onboard Activities
Pretty good activities throughout the cruise week, but again not great!
Children's Programs Can't answer as we did not use!
Entertainment was good during our time on the ship.
Service and Staff
Felt the cruise staff did a very good job in serving us especially our table staff and room host!
Food and Dining
Not up to the standards we expected compared to other cruises we've taken!
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Didn't go here and disappointed we couldn't!
George Town, Grand Cayman
Disappointed in this stop but still a good getaway early on in the cruise!
Cozumel, Mexico
Really liked this new port and the shops focused on the customers --- one of the best ports for cruisers we've been in!


Crown Grille was a very good restaurant to eat in --- best on the ship! Make reservations early as they go quick --- 5:30/6PM times usually available! Crab Shack on top deck was not worth the extra price for the dinner!
